"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's WoW selections are...
Author: Colleen Hoover
Publisher: Atria Books
Publication Date: August 5th, 2014
When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.
Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.
They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.
Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.
I have read and loved just about every book put out by Colleen Hoover. I'll admit, this one worries me a tiny bit, but so did her last one, Maybe Someday and I enjoyed it. So I should't worry, right? I'm really looking forward to this messy romance. One more month!! Can't wait! Might end up going audio with this one.
Author: Victoria Aveyard
Series: n/a at this time
Publication Date: February 10, 2015
Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood--those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of fate leads her to the royal palace itself, where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers a power of her own--an ability she didn't know she had. Except . . . her blood is Red.
To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks her new position to aid the Scarlet Guard--the leaders of a Red rebellion. Her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince--and Mare against her own heart.
From debut author Victoria Aveyard comes a lush, vivid fantasy series where loyalty and desire can tear you apart and the only certainty is betrayal.
I just discovered this book late last week on Goodreads, but I'm already so excited for it! That cover is amazing, and that tagline: Power is a dangerous game. Gah! One thing, though...the first time I saw the premise, I read the MC's name as Bone Marrow, I guess because the book is about blood and the name is similar. Whatever. I don't care if her name is Seymour Butts, I'd still read the hell out of this, lol.
