Synopsis: Stone Hamilton had never known fear…until the accident. Since then, his life has spiraled out of control. He’s been kicked out of private school, deemed a disappointment by his father, and forced to endure his own guilt, anger, and grief. The last thing he wants is a relationship with someone who will have expectations of him. But once he’s enticed by the shimmering pink lips of the oh-so-popular, academically-excelling, straitlaced hottie from his new school, he knows he’s in trouble.
Seventeen-year-old Dara Golding has one goal for the summer. Make enough money to buy a car, so that she can drive to school her senior year. After starting a new job, she realizes that she’ll be working with the brooding, motorcycle-riding, bad boy who started attending Quail Mountain High last year. With his less than stellar reputation, he’s everything she’s afraid of…and that makes him dangerous.
Their undeniable attraction has Stone struggling with his inner demons. As Dara slowly allows Stone to claim her heart, a little white lie to cover an ugly truth could determine whether she’s his savior or the final straw that will break his sanity.
Personal Thoughts: Aside from the yummy guy on the cover with dreamy eyes, there is not much else that really draws my attention. It’s stark, there is not much to go on, but you know what they say about covers: don’t judge them. It’s a simple cover and sometimes that is all you need to grab someone’s attention. The plot sounds really good and I might take a peak at it once it comes out.
