Gabriel Merrick plays with fire. Literally.

Sometimes he can even control it. And sometimes he can’t. Like the fire that killed his parents.

Gabriel has always had his brothers to rely on, especially his twin, Nick. But when an arsonist starts wreaking havoc on their town, all the signs point to Gabriel. Only he’s not doing it.

More than Gabriel’s pride is at stake -- this could cost him his family, maybe his life. And no one seems to hear him. Except a shy sophomore named Layne, a brainiac who dresses in turtlenecks and jeans and keeps him totally off balance. Layne understands family problems, and she understands secrets. She has a few of her own.

Gabriel can’t let her guess about his brothers, about his abilities, about the danger that’s right at his heels. But there are some risks he can’t help taking.

The fuse is lit…

- Yay! I'm seriously super excited about this one because it's Gabriel freaking Merrick's story! I've read the first chapter of this book and it killed me, it just triggered my craving for Gabriel this book! Can't wait to read this book. :))

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...

- I was very intrigued the first time I read the blurb of this book and it did remind me of Forbidden. This may sound pretty dramatic and really angsty but it seems like something I would really like. :))

  11. Ohh, the peer pressure! I really need to read Elementals soon. I just have to catch up with my review copies and I'll be right on it.
    Thanks for stopping by, Eunice. :)

  12. Oh my Spark, thank goodness it's coming out soon this August -- I don't know what I would've done if I had to wait an entire year before reading that book! x) Have you read the chapter excerpt of it yet?? I just found it the other day and almost had a heart attack, it was so good! LOL and I know that Gabriel's your favourite, so there's extra pressure to deliver ;) And I'm intrigued by the cover and synopsis of Flawed too! :)
