About the front:
Oooh. So there’s something hot and burning up there and it’s bleeding into the title. And there’s a boy(?), man(?), person (who knows given the Gargoyle in the front) hanging from that hot-burning-fire-bomb-thing up there. I gotta say, that center sparkler keeps bringing my eye back up to it. It’s probably the red, contrasted with the blue that does it, but I keep going up, sliding down to the kid(?) and falling all the way to the title.

Is that the intent? Looks like it to me! And I’m totally getting the ‘hot’ vibes from this. I swear, if I touch it, it might burn my little typing fingers. We can’t have that of course, so let’s carry on … and try not to keep looking back at it.

Now let’s look at what the back says:

Normal people don’t believe their nightmares stalk them. They don’t fall in love with boys who don’t exist, either.

Seventeen-year-old Layla Labelle, though, is far from normal. Her delusions walk the earth. Her hallucinations hunt her, and her skin heats to a burn every time her anger flares.

Or is that all in her head?

Layla doesn’t know what to believe any more because if none of that’s true, Max MacLarnon must be an illusion, and her heart must still be broken.

No matter how much she wants to believe Max is real, doing so would mean everything else is, too. How, then, is that possible?

The answers lie in an age-old legend the supernatural aren’t prepared to reveal, and with a curse that could tear Layla and Max apart forever—if it doesn’t kill them both first.

In TIED, book one in the Fire Born trilogy, learning the truth will mean fighting an arsenal of demons, and being with Max will put Layla on a path toward her own destruction.

Just how far will Layla go to protect the one she loves?

The answer may never be far enough … away.

Does it match? Front to Back without the in between?

Normal people don’t believe their nightmares stalk them. They don’t fall in love with boys who don’t exist, either.

Pretty much, gotta agree with that.

Seventeen-year-old Layla Labelle, though, is far from normal. Her delusions walk the earth. Her hallucinations hunt her, and her skin heats to a burn every time her anger flares.

Awe, man! Poor girl! Assuming these delusions and hallucinations are her nightmares, that’s gotta suck! I don’t remember most of my dreams, but a few I do and I would NOT want them following me.

Now the skin heating to a burn … hmmm … look at that cover. Very very interesting!

Or is that all in her head?

Probably is.

Layla doesn’t know what to believe any more because if none of that’s true, Max MacLarnon must be an illusion, and her heart must still be broken.

Oh, no! Broken hearts! 🙁 ::wanh:: Makes me wonder if that boy/man/kid/person hanging from the hot stuff is Max and the hot stuff is Layla. Like is she really just a fireball instead of a person? Maybe SHE’S not even real. Hmmm

No matter how much she wants to believe Max is real, doing so would mean everything else is, too. How, then, is that possible?

See, I know something fishy’s going on. Love it!

The answers lie in an age-old legend the supernatural aren’t prepared to reveal, and with a curse that could tear Layla and Max apart forever—if it doesn’t kill them both first.

Damn. Everybody always almost dies or will die or might die. Then again that would kinda break her heart, wouldn’t it?

In TIED, book one in the Fire Born trilogy, learning the truth will mean fighting an arsenal of demons, and being with Max will put Layla on a path toward her own destruction.

Just how far will Layla go to protect the one she loves?

The answer may never be far enough … away.

Ooh … away? No! We want them together! Since this is obviously romance, how are they going to get To.GETH.ER?

Will I read it?
Yes!
