Cover reveal!

If you have been following me for a while you will know I am a self-confessed Jennifer L Armentrout fan girl - I adore everything she has written, I just understand her writing and connect with it - Plus she creates the most swoon worthy of guys ;)

Today is a day I have been very excited for! The cover reveal of her amazing Upcoming book 'Don't Look Back'!

Here is what she has to say - 

"I wrote DLB (Don’t Look Back in short, lazy speak) in November 2011, in-between writing Onyx and Shadows. Yes, I wrote the prequel to Obsidian after I wrote the second book in the series. Odd, I know. Anyway, DLB sold to Disney/Hyperion in Jan 2012 and it’s already sold into 6 foreign territories—Spain, Canada, Israel, Serbia, Catalan, Germany, and Brazil. DLB was my very first jump into contemporary and my first thriller/mystery. Of course, DLB has a swoon-a-rific romance involved."

DLB will be released in hardcover and digital, it’s a standalone, and here is the official description:

Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.
Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it’s one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took “mean girl” to a whole new level, and it’s clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She’s getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she’s falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn’t just buried deep inside of Sam’s memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?


Here are what some way early reviewers had to say about DLB

“With an intriguing premise and a main character who suddenly has a new opportunity to start over, Don’t Look Back is a haunting and bewitching book that is impossible to put down. ” Anna López,

“When you look for a good thriller for young adult readers, you want non stop action, a empathic character, unexpected twists, a deep psychological portrait of the characters, a plausible plot and nothing too bloody. Don’t Look Back has everything . Sammy is an incredible character, so believable from the stunning first scene, that you simply have to follow her, even if the path is full of danger.” Rocío de Isasa, editor of Maeva Young

“ The most compelling thing about Don’t Look Back is Sammy’s chance to completely reinvent herself after the traumatic events she is struggling to remember. Her process of growth, of re-evaluating her priorities, of understanding what really matters in life and making amends for past mistakes… It really sets this novel apart from other YA thrillers and gives it a very interesting depth.” Marta Armengol, editor of Maeva
