He’s persuasive, charming, and way too mysterious. And for Samara Marshall, her co-worker is everything she wants most–and everything she most fears. . .

Samara Marshall is determined to make the summer before her senior year the best ever. Her plan: enjoy downtime with friends and work to save up cash for her dream car. Summer romance is not on her to-do list, but uncovering the truth about her flirtatious co-worker, Caleb Baker, is. From the peculiar glow to his eyes to the unfortunate events that befall the girls who pine after him, Samara is the only one to sense danger behind his smile.

But Caleb’s secrets are drawing Samara into a world where the laws of attraction are a means of survival. And as a sinister power closes in on those she loves, Samara must take a risk that will change her life forever. . .or consume it.

  2. Wow, this book interested me because it is by an African American author something you hardly see in YA. I may get this just to support more POC in books . . . and the plot looks super cute !

  5. I like how no one else has picked this yet. Methinks the model seems to be the same one for the covers on Shea Berkley’s Keepers of Life Series. Even the hoodie that he sports looks familiar. 🙂

    Hope you can visit my WoW post this week:
