"Sarah O’Brien is 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.
Donavon has been James’ 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 . . ." - From Goodreads.com
Soooooo, I found this on the First Reads giveaway on Goodreads.com, and it looked super good. I'm a little uncertain as to exactly what the book is about. Incest? A lot of people suggested that, and it sure seems like it from the blurb, but, you never know. Everything else is pretty clear. The book was supposed to come out this month, but is now being put off until October 1st. The author did post an excerpt to tide us over for the two extra months before publication, which you can find here: http://www.fortheloveofcontemporary.blogspot.com/2012/04/why-contemporary-and-sneak-peak.html
Hope you enjoy! I can't wait for it to come out! Happy Reading!
