It's been a while since I've done one of these but I'm bringing them back because well, I miss keeping track of the books that I'm looking forward to reading...I'm quickly losing control of my lists so I need to bring them back to the blog. With pretty pictures. =)
Today's book watch goes to a book that I've been pretty anxious to read ever since I found out it was coming out.
Ryan lowers his lips to my ear. "Dance with me, Beth."
"No." I whisper the reply. I hate him and I hate myself for wanting him to touch me again....
"I dare you..."
If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk's home life, they'd send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom's freedom and her own happiness. That's how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn't want her and going to a school that doesn't understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn't get her, but does....
Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock-with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him.
But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams-and his life-for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all....This is going to be my reward read for myself after I read a couple review books that I need to get off my plate. And I can't wait.
This book comes out on June 7, 2013. Mark your calendars, dear readers...this promises to be a good one. I've seen loads of praise for this book. Woot!
...and that's your scoop!
