He leaned toward me, his voice a harsh whisper now. “For Christ’s sakes, Violet, he’s a vampire. How can you even…” He trailed off, shaking his head. “Just…never mind.”

Together, we slid down in the seat, away from prying eyes. I heard him sigh, felt the muscles in his relax. “Was that for Tyler’s benefit, or mine?” he asked, his voice a hoarse whisper.
“Take your pick,” I answered coyly. But speaking silently inside my head, I told a different story. For you, I said. Always for you. (MIRAGE ARC, pages 151-152)

Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols

Reading Level: Ages 9-12
Publisher: MTV Books
Release date: July 10, 2012
Number of Pages: 336 pages

Description:
The wildly popular author of Going Too Far, Forget You, and Love Story returns with a sexy and poignant romantic tale of a young daredevil pilot caught between two brothers.
High school senior Leah Jones loves nothing more than flying. While she’s in the air, it’s easy to forget life with her absentee mother at the low-rent end of a South Carolina beach town. When her flight instructor, Mr. Hall, hires her to fly for his banner advertising business, she sees it as her ticket out of the trailer park. And when he dies suddenly, she’s afraid her flying career is gone forever.

But Mr. Hall’s teenage sons, golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson, are determined to keep the banner planes flying. Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business—until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers—and the consequences could be deadly.

Teaser:
“Thank you,” I murmured, breathing in his scent, allowing myself to experience the full brunt of the Aidan effect. “God, you smell so good.”
“Better than Dr. Hottie?” Aidan asked huskily, one hand pressed into the small of my back, steadying me.
“Way better,” I shot back, before I’d thought better of it. (MIRAGE ARC, page 65)

Mirage by Kristi Cook

Reading level: Ages 14 and up
Hardcover: 384 pages
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: June 5, 2012

Description:
Danger looms large in the sequel to Haven, which Booklist called “a blend of the Gemma Doyle trilogy, the Twilight saga, and Lois Duncan’s thrillers.”
Violet McKenna is back for her senior year at Winterhaven and thrilled to be with Aidan after a long summer apart. But while their love for each other is as strong as ever, their troubles are far from over.

News of a rogue vampire on a killing spree sets everyone on edge. While Aidan is determined to stop the killer, Violet is chilled by a horrifying vision she simply must prevent…for if she can’t, two people she loves will meet a violent end.

In the midst of Violet’s fear, a mysterious newcomer enters her life—and he has some vital information not just about her past, but about her future as well. Now everything Violet held as truth is upended, and she is left not knowing whom to trust, if she is in danger, and—worst of all—whether she and Aidan are really meant to be together.

Now this is a book that I am eagerly waiting on. I loved the first book Haven and I can’t wait to get my hands on Mirage. What are you waiting on?

Description:
At a camp filled with vampires, werewolves, and fairies, Kylie Galen has always struggled to figure out what she is. Now she finally knows the truth—but she’s left with more questions than answers. She doesn’t have a clue what her heritage means or how to harness her newfound powers. All she knows is that she needs to sort out her feelings for Derek, the sexy half-Fae who just confessed his love, and Lucas, her werewolf boyfriend who seems more committed to his pack than to their relationship. All the while, Kylie’s dealing with a group of underground rogues who want her dead and a mysterious grandfather who makes it clear he doesn’t trust the FRU . . . or Shadow Falls. Soon Kylie will have to choose: Will she stay with the new family she’s formed at Shadow Falls, or will she leave with her grandfather and embrace her destiny?

Endure (Need #4) by Carrie Jones

Publication Date: May 8th

From Goodreads:

It’s all-out war (and no-holds-barred romance) in the climactic conclusion to Carrie Jones’s bestselling series.

Zara is at the center of an impending apocalypse. True, she’s successfully rescued Nick from Valhalla, but it simply isn’t enough. Evil pixies are ravaging Bedford, and they need much more than one great warrior; they need an army. Zara isn’t sure what her role is anymore. She’s not just fighting for her friends; she’s also a pixie queen. And to align her team of pixies with the humans she loves will be one of her greatest battles yet. Especially since she can’t even reconcile her growing feelings for her pixie king . . .

Unexpected turns, surprising revelations, and one utterly satisfying romantic finale make Endure a thrilling end to this series of bestsellers.
