The Vampire Diaries: The Awakening and The Struggle, by L.J. Smith

Book 1 and 2 in one volume.

Elena is blond, gorgeous and the most popular girl in school. Her friends, Caroline, Bonnie and Meredith are pretty and popular too. Elena is used to getting what she wants and what she wants is the mysterious dark handsome new guy, Stefan. She dumps her quarterback boyfriend Matt in hopes of something sparking with Stefan. Elena tries every trick and lure she knows to attract Stefan and nothing is working. She doesn't understand it. To top that off her friend Caroline has turned against her and is trying to steal Stefan for herself.

Stefan notices Elena right off the bat. She looks exactly like his long ago lost love, the one who transformed him into a vampire. It is only with his lapis lazuli ring, a talisman forged with a powerful magic that allows a vampire to endure the sun without perishing, that he is able to live like a human. Tortured by the mere site of Elena, he does everything in his power to avoid her and her charms. Then along comes Damon, Stefans rival brother. The one who killed his beloved so long ago. Damon wants Elena and Stefan can't let that happen, not again. Not without a fight.

Damon is dark, sexy and dangerous. He follows his brother to this town in the middle of nowhere only to discover a rare beauty, Elena. He is captivated with her and will stop at nothing to possess what he desires. The only hitch in his plan is Stefan, the one who destroyed his true love so many years ago. The only girl he's ever loved, the one that made him a vampire.

This book was really good. I loved the brotherly hate and lust after Elena. It was very dark and fun. You'll love it.
