When a good girl falls for a bad boy

She thought she loved him. She thought she could change him. She thought if she just believed in him enough, his cheating and his drugs and his lying would stop, and she'd be his and he'd be hers and they'd love each other forever.

But for Samantha Henderson, X-the boy she will not name-is trouble. He's older, edgier, bohemian . . . and when he starts paying attention to Sam, she can't resist him. Samantha's family and friends try to warn her, but still she stays with him, risking her future and everything that really matters.

As moody and vivid as it is captivating, Dating Down is told in scenes and bursts of poetry that create a story filled with hurt, healing, and hope.

It was the cover that got me (it's ALWAYS the cover- but I don't want to be like Chloe). Another reason why I want to read it is the bittersweet romance hinted in the synopsis, and how can you possibly resist that? The promise of hot guys and swoon-worthy moments will definitely make a girl weak in the knees. Add some intriguing words and phrases like 'poetry', 'a story filled with hurt, healing and hope', and you've got my full attention.
