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.
Interesting . . . I'd love to read more about this starcrossed couple, and can you feel the angst wafting off the screen already? I sure can!

I love the simplicity of the cover, and its focus on black. It's interesting how the font size of the author's name differs, but it's also a bit disorienting. What I really like is the title, how it's going up the side of the cover, and how it looks as if there's scratches across the words, as well as how the words "a novel" fits into the "O".
