Summary:

Sarah O’Brien is only alive because of the pact she and her brother made twelve years ago—James will protect her from their violent father if she promises to never leave him. For years, she’s watched James destroy his life to save hers. If all he asks for in return is her affection, she’ll give it freely. Until, with a tiny kiss and a broken mind, he asks for more than she can give.
Sam Donavon has been James’s best friend—and the boy Sarah’s had a crush on—for as long as she can remember. As their forbidden relationship deepens, Sarah knows she’s in trouble. Quiet, serious Sam has decided he’s going to save her. Neither of them realize James is far more unstable than her father ever was, or that he’s not about to let Sarah forget her half of the pact...

Title: A Beautiful Dark
Series: A Beautiful Dark Trilogy 1
Author: Jocelyn Davies

Language: English
Publisher:
Harper Teen
Format: Paperback
Expected Publication: August 28, 2012

Summary:

On the night of Skye's seventeenth birthday, she meets two enigmatic strangers. Complete opposites—like fire and ice—Asher is dark and wild, while Devin is fair and aloof. Their sudden appearance sends Skye's life into a tailspin. She has no idea what they want, or why they seem to follow her every move—only that their presence coincides with a flurry of strange events. Soon she begins to doubt not just the identity of the two boys, but also the truth about her own past.
In the dead of a bitingly cold Colorado winter, Skye finds herself coming to terms with the impossible secret that threatens to shatter her world. Torn between Asher, who she can’t help falling for, and Devin, who she can’t stay away from, the consequences of Skye’s choice will reach further than the three of them could ever imagine.

Why I am lurking on this: I've heard a lot of good things about this, so I want to check it out. Thus, here I sit, waiting for the paperback to come out.

  2. Flawless looks very intriguing and intense, but I think it is one I will love. I liked Beautiful Dark. It is like other speculative fiction, but I have read others in the same genre that I loved. This was good enough that I want to read #2, but just not wow. New Network Blog Follower! Check out my WoW

  3. Flawed sounds really intense, and I'm pretty excited about it (only 20 days)! I'm not sure about A Beautiful Dark based solely on the fact that I'm sort of burnt out on the whole love triangle thing. Of course, now that I've said that I'll probably love it. Great picks!

  4. I'm happy for all of you I could coax into wanting to read Flawed, I am really excited about this one! Now all that's left is to wait, buy, devour and enjoy! 😉

  5. Oh my goodness! Flawed sounds flippin' amazing. Thanks for giving me a heads up on this book 😀 Totally just added it to my tbr list.
