Cross your heart and hope to live…
Luke can uncross almost any curse—they unravel themselves for him like no one else. So working for the Kovrovs, one of the families controlling all the magic in New York, is exciting and dangerous, especially when he encounters the first curse he can't break. And it involves Jeremy, the beloved, sheltered prince of the Kovrov family—the one boy he absolutely shouldn't be falling for.
Jeremy's been in love with cocky, talented Luke since they were kids. But from their first kiss, something's missing. Jeremy's family keeps generations of deadly secrets, forcing him to choose between love and loyalty. As Luke fights to break the curse, a magical, citywide war starts crackling, and it's tied to Jeremy.
This might be the one curse Luke can't uncross. If true love's kiss fails, what's left for him and Jeremy?

"A lovely story that combines clever writing, treacherous magic, and a swoon-worthy, fairy tale romance." -Tara Sim, author of Timekeeper
"I fell in love with this book after the first ten pages. That doesn't really happen to me, and the last book that gave me such a ride and the need to both slap and hug the characters was Nora Sakavic's The Foxhole Court. No other book has called my attention this way since then, and anyone who knows me knows exactly what that means." -Laly, I Am Never Lost And Never Found Tumblr

"[T]his was amazing and cute as hell." -Laura, The BookCorps
