Date Night on Union Station (EarthCent Ambassador #1) by E. M. Foner
Kelly Frank is EarthCent’s top diplomat on Union Station, but her job description has always been a bit vague. The pay is horrible and she’s in hock up to her ears for her furniture, which is likely to end up in a corridor because she’s behind on rent for her room. Sometimes she has to wonder if the career she has put ahead of her personal life for fifteen years is worth it.
When Kelly receives a gift subscription to the dating service that’s rumored to be powered by the same benevolent artificial intelligence that runs the huge station, she decides to swallow her pride and give it a shot. But as her dates go from bad to worse, she can only hope that the supposedly omniscient AI is planning a happy ending.

Hard Duty (Merkiaari Wars #1) by Mark E. Cooper
Our last encounter with an alien space fleet saw sixteen-point-two billion people killed when the Merkiaari’s galactic empire declared war, and sparked an alien invasion of humanity’s colony worlds the scale of which could never have been foreseen. Thousands of ships, millions of our finest soldiers and space marine assets, sacrificed themselves in battles that spanned decades in an effort to throw the aliens back.
Two hundred years later, the Human Alliance of Worlds is carefully exploring beyond its borders again, but Survey Corps is considered a mere gesture by some. General Burgton of the 501st Infantry Regiment believes a lack of expansion is leading the Alliance into stagnation. So when one small survey ship, ASN Canada, discovers a new alien race and makes first contact, he’s cautiously optimistic that things are about to change for the better, but what if the aliens are like the Merkiaari?

The Defectors (Defectors Trilogy #1) by Tarah Benner
First came the virus. Then came the Collapse. The only way to contain the epidemic is mandatory migration across the northern border of the United States. Each vaccinated citizen is identified by a tiny microchip — the most intelligent piece of technology ever to be implanted in a human being that tracks and analyzes your every move.
Twenty-year-old Haven Allis is in the system: her Citizen ID tracks her location, conversations, Internet activity, bank account — everything. Any suspicious activity is warrant for arrest.
But for those who are undocumented, life is much worse. Illegals are taken to the prisons in Sector X and made to disappear.
When her best friend Greyson is captured and arrested for his undocumented status, Haven must go off the grid to save him. Life outside the city has its own dangers: carriers of the virus lurk everywhere, and the Private Military Company is rounding up illegals. On her mission to rescue Greyson, Haven will discover a revolution in motion and be forced to question everything she believes.
