GoodReads Summary:

A girl with a broken past and a dark secret. A boy with a twisted future and no second chances. When they meet, it just might cost them their souls.

Sixteen-year-old Summer doesn’t expect the new boarding school to be any different than the rest: a temporary stay where everyone will turn against her after a few weeks. Until she meets the rest of the students at this special school and realizes she’s not the only one with magic in her blood. Accustomed to the concrete jungle of LA, she gets lost one night in the forests of the Rocky Mountains and meets Decker, the boy who will become the Master of Night and Fire on his eighteenth birthday. Their connection is instant and dangerous, for both will be forced to choose between Light and Dark, life and death, love – and their souls.

One choice. One soul. One price.
My Review:
One weary night I decided to finally pick up dark summer & boy am I thankful I did, Lizzy simply bewitched me with her fantastical writing & a tale of such bittersweet love & friendship it made my heart swell, I read long in to the night & right into the next morning , until the sun rays shone thrown my window & then instantly pick the next book!

I  was totally captivated from the first few pages, lizzy has a wonderful way of giving you enough to keep you in the know but not enough so you just have to keep on guessing & of course reading on to find out more. 

I threw away all known concepts of witches & fell whole heartily it too it's world of light & dark magic, Witchlings, elements & curses.
It was so wonderfully different &  i couldn't of been more thrilled! description

Dark summer doesn't  just touch on young adult/teen emotions it explodes with it (in a good way of course) and its hard not to be drawn in. There were so many moments where I found myself sighing before giggling like mad because I can remember having the same girly conversation with my girl friends.... & I was even blushing at some spots, which is odd because I read so much darn smut! Lol

But seriously the love story lizzy weaved wasn't  your everyday sweet teenage  love, it was raw, powerful, tender & so intoxicating to read. I was openly weeping  at the ending, not just a couple of tears I mean like Totaly balling my eyes out, weeping! It was kinda embarrassing actually.. 
 "Decker kissed her and pulled her harder against him. Even her lips gave of burst of magick that lit his blood on fire. He didn't deserve her, but he'd do what she said and let himself feel the joy bubbling. They'd take it one day at a time. Suddenly, two weeks seemed longer, if he could spend every day with the beautiful in his arms"

So what are you waiting for! Go buy now!
Unless of course your scared of being spellbound by this book & being totally & utterly addicted to the trilogy!... which I promise you wil be! Lol

This is one of my Favorite Songs, its sooo Beautiful & everytime i hear it i cry.
I though it be Perfect as Decker & Summer Song not only beacuse it makes me cry but because it a beautiful beautiful Song about a Beautiful Summer Romance..nawww
