Waiting on Wednesday (28): Dangerous Boy

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where you have a chance to let other know what you can’t wait to claim as your own. 

by Mandy Hubbard
Expected publication: August 30th 2012 by Razorbill

A modern-day retelling of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde with a chilling twist.

Harper has never been worried about falling in love, something she is skeptical even exists. But everything changes when Logan moves to town, and to Harper's shock, the two tumble into an intense romance. It's everything she never thought she wanted.

Then she meets Logan's twin brother, Caleb, who was expelled from his last school. True, he's a bad boy, but Harper can't shake the feeling that there's something deeply sinister about him--something dangerous. When Logan starts pulling away, Harper is convinced that Caleb's shadowy past is the wedge being driven between them. But by the time she uncovers the truth, it may be too late.

The author of Prada & Prejudice, You Wish, and Ripple delivers a modern-day retelling of a famously gothic tale, full of suspense, lies, and romance.

Why I need this: I have her other book, Ripple (which is another book with an AMAZING cover). But I haven’t read it yet. However this book just sounds so AMAZING!! And I'm totally in love with the cover. Hot twins, intense romance, and a retelling of a crazy amazing story?!?! A total winner for me!


  1. OMG I LOVE PRADA AND PREJUDICE!!!! I'll be looking out for this one!

  2. Well; I am sold on this book lol
    & on a completely unrelated note - you just sold me on the book you are currently reading also. I saw the dude in uniform and that was it for me lol

  3. I'm literally starting this book as we speak. I'll let you know how it goes. I haven't read Ripple but I heard that was good. This book sounds kind of like Vampire Diaries to me! LOL The girl is in love with the good sweet brother but is also drawn to the dangerous one. Should be interesting.
    My WOW

  4. Firstly, this is my first time to your blog, and it is absolutely ADORABLE. I'm loving it (in a non McDonalds way)

    Secondly, I am super ashamed to admit that I have never read Jekyll & Hyde, though that is going to have to change super soon since I am assistant directing an off-Broadway adaptation of it this summer. So I will read that, and then I will read this. =)

    Thanks for the pick! Happy WoW!

  5. I also can't wait for Dangerous Boy!
