Waiting on Wednesday: 10/08/14

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

Joyride

     A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices for midnight pranking, and are soon in over their heads—with the law and with each other—in this sparkling standalone from NYT-bestselling author Anna Banks.
     It’s been years since Carly Vega’s parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico.
     Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber’s dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn’t acknowledge Amber's mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfill whatever his conservative father expects.
     All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to NOT do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they’ve been living according to others. Carly and Arden’s journey toward their true hearts—and one another—is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.

Expected Publication: June 2, 2015

Why I'm Waiting: I LOVED the Syrena Legacy series by her and now I can't wait for her to "dive" (pun intended) into contemporary romance. And honestly, that synopsis sounds so good! Just like the troubled romances I LOVE! I've never read anything about anyone being deported, and I am definitely interested in figuring out what mental illness Amber had that her family chose to ignore. 

What are you waiting on this week?!
Will you be waiting on this with me?!

  1. Nice! I'm hesitant with this one! Loved Anna's Syrena trilogy but not sure this one is really for me. Hope you enjoy it once you get it!
