As you all probably know...I am a sucker for Jennifer Echols' books - I once stated her writing was the YA equivalent of crack .
She's got a fantastic knack of creating contemporary fun, yet meaningful tales of love and romance. She can skilfully tiptoe the line between sweet, realistic and steamy - she's simply a joy to read and 'Going Too Far' is my favourite book of the year so far.
I learned two days ago that there are two new Jenn Echols titles coming out in 2010 and I am beyond excited. There are no covers as yet but here are the descriptions from http://www.jenn-echols.com/.
Forget You (July 2010)
Zoey’s life in her Florida beach resort town is happy and organized. She’s the captain of her high school swim team, and she works for her dad at his popular water park. Then her dad has an affair with one of his employees, and her mother has a breakdown. But Zoey begins a committed relationship with a hot lifeguard, which makes her feel stable, even if things aren’t perfect at home. Everything is still under control.
Until she has a car accident that she can’t remember. She should have been with her boyfriend that night, but he doesn’t seem to know anything about the accident—and he doesn’t seem to care. The person who doescare, and knows more than he’s telling, is Doug, Zoey’s darkly handsome arch-enemy who saved her from the wreckage. As Zoey begins to piece together what happened that night, she finds her sense of control over her life was only an illusion. And she inches closer to discovering the darkest secret of all: why Doug has fallen in love with her.
Endless Summer (aka sequel to Boys Next Door)
Lori should have known better than to date a pirate. After finally getting together and going out on their first real date, only Lori and Adam could manage to fall asleep—and wake up seven hours past Lori’s curfew. Their parents forbid them to see each other. So Lori takes it upon herself to date boys scarier than Adam until her dad gives in.
But Adam won’t play along. He’s afraid Lori might fall for these scary boys. And when she goes out with the scariest boy of all—Adam’s own brother and her ex-crush—even the threat of being sent away to military school can’t keep Adam from swashbuckling his way back into Lori’s heart.
Can this forbidden love stay afloat, or will it sink in the watery deep?
Colour me beyond excited!
