Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception by Maggie Stiefvater

Deidre has a perfectly ordinary life until she meets Luke Dillon. When she's not at her mom's beck and call, she hangs out with her best friend James, works at the ice cream parlor, and plays her harp. From the day she meets Luke, odd things start to happen. Dee finds four-leaf clovers everywhere and discovers she can move things with her mind. Luke says he's there to protect her from them (the faery), but who will protect her from him?

What I thought: The first few chapters were a bit slow as the plot unfolded, but once it was, I couldn't put the book down. The chemistry between Dee and Luke is sizzling. Dee's friendship with James is great. The plot was complicated yet riveting. I can't wait to read the sequel Ballad.
