Waiting on Wednesday #12

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine where you share an upcoming release that you're anticipating on reading.

I'm waiting on:

Flawed by Kate Avelynn
Expected Publication: July 10, 2012

Goodreads Summary: 
Sarah O’Brien is 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...

Why I'm Waiting?

1. Jena from Shortie-Says.
A lot of the books I have on my 'to-read' list are books Jena has either recommended or talked about on Twitter or featured on her blog. I have even purchased some books that she has mentioned previously (i.e. Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, Touch by Jus Accardo, Brightest Kind of Darkness by P.T. Michelle) In other words, there hasn't been a book that she has mentioned that I wasn't interested in. Besides, Jena has impeccable taste. I don't think twice and add the books! Therefore, Flawed is up my alley. Thanks Jena <3 :)
Jena is celebrating her blog milestone of 1300 followers with a giveaway, enter here:

2. The Book.
I love books that deal with dark and deep topics, such as this one. I'm a sucker for a book where you know bad stuff is going to happen, where there's this one bright spot, but crazy shit goes down anyway and then at the end you're so heart broken that you can't function for hours. I love that. When I get all emotional (crying or not) I KNOW that the book is made of gold. I have a feeling Flawed will be this.

3. Sarah O'Brien & Sam Donovan.
*sigh* I haven't even met Sam yet and I already love him. Plus forbidden relationships are totally my thing. They are exciting and exhilarating and downright epic. What's not to love? You can't go wrong with a boy who takes you out of the disaster that is your life (my boyfriend does this for me) so I can totes relate to Sarah and Sam <3 I can't wait to get lost in their romance.
