But just as she's getting comfortable, her family's ties to dark magick force her to leave.

Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. She's stuck at JFK, late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon to be step-mother that Hadley's never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport's cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he's British, and he's in seat 18B. Hadley's in 18A.
Twists of fate and quirks of timing play out in this thoughtful novel about family connections, second chances and first loves. Set over a 24-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.
Darkness Falls (Immortal Beloved #2): Hmm, the cover art doesn't really give a "Young Adult" vibe, does it? I don't know why, but it feels more like an adult book to me. Anyway, I absolutely loved the first book, Immortal Beloved and have been eagerly awaiting the sequel! I'm so excited to see what's next for Natasya (who, by the way, is awesome) and to see how the relationship between her and Reyn will unfold. Let's just say, they've shared an intense past together.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight: BRITISH BOY. Oh, right. And the story sounds awesome too. I love that the entire book is set over a 24 hour period, I'm so curious to see how that author pulls it off. This sounds like such a sweet contemporary read!
What are you waiting on?
