Publisher Comments:

Sarah OBrien is alive because of the pact she and her brother made twelve years ago — James will protect her from their violent father if she promises to never leave him. For years, shes watched James destroy his life to save hers. If all he asks for in return is her affection, shell give it freely.

Until, with a tiny kiss and a broken mind, he asks for more than she can give.

Sam Donavon has been Jamess best friend — and the boy Sarahs had a crush on — for as long as she can remember. As their forbidden relationship deepens, Sarah knows shes in trouble.

Synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old Sarah OBrien is only alive because of the pact she and her older brother made twelve years ago—James will protect her from their violent father if she promises never to leave him. For years, Sarah has watched James destroy his life to save hers, taking her beatings only to crawl into her bed afterwards, bruised and bleeding, insisting on comforting her when all she wants is to comfort him. If all he asks for is her affection, shell give it freely. Anything to take away some of her guilt.

Until, with a tiny kiss and a broken mind, he asks for more than she can give.

Sam Donavon has been her brothers best friend for as long as Sarah can remember. He knows what goes on in the OBrien house, but James swore him to secrecy—and celibacy, where Sarahs concerned—ages ago. When he nearly kisses her at a party, then shows up the next morning as shes trying to escape her drunk father, Sarah knows shes in trouble. Quiet, serious Sam has decided hes going to save her.

As their forbidden relationship deepens, Sarah realizes Sams love is unconditional—a foreign concept more addictive than the drugs her mother takes. Sam wants her to run away with him, to start a new life somewhere shell be safe from the increasingly paranoid James, but Sarahs misplaced loyalty to her brother is paralyzing. Neither of them realize James is far more unstable than her father ever was, or that hes not about to let Sarah forget her half of the pact.

FLAWED is a 70,000 word dark young adult novel.
