Day 1: Julia Donnelly eggs my house my first night back in Star Lake, and that’s how I know everyone still remembers everything—how I destroyed my relationship with Patrick the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. How I wrecked their whole family. Now I’m serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college, and be done.

Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn’t finished. I’m expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it’s just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. “For what it’s worth, Molly Barlow,” he says, “I’m really glad you’re back.”

Day 12: Gabe got me to come to this party, and I’m actually having fun. I think he’s about to kiss me—and that’s when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who’s supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who’s never going to forgive me.

I read How to Love by Katie Cotugno earlier this year and I liked it. This one seems really fun so I'm looking forward to it. I want to know what this chick did to get all this animosity thrown at her. lol. And I actually just got this one off Edelweiss, so maybe I'll start it sooner rather than later. :)

Oh and a shout out for Jen's pick below, I have been so wrapped up in regular life, I didn't even see this cover until now, while scheduling my half. I cannot freaking wait for The Heart of Betrayal either.

's Pick:

Title: The Heart of Betrayal
Author: Mary E. Pearson
Series: The Remnant Chronicles, book #2
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Publication Date: July 7, 2015

Intrigue abounds in this hotly anticipated sequel to The Kiss of Deception!

Held captive in the barbarian kingdom of Venda, Lia and Rafe have little chance of escape. Desperate to save her life, Lia's erstwhile assassin, Kaden, has told the Vendan Komizar that she has the gift, and the Komizar's interest in Lia is greater than anyone could have foreseen.

Meanwhile, nothing is straightforward: there's Rafe, who lied to Lia, but has sacrificed his freedom to protect her; Kaden, who meant to assassinate her but has now saved her life; and the Vendans, whom Lia always believed to be barbarians. Now that she lives amongst them, however, she realizes that may be far from the truth. Wrestling with her upbringing, her gift, and her sense of self, Lia must make powerful choices that will affect her country... and her own destiny.

The Kiss of Deception was one of my top reads this year -- maybe even THE top read -- and I've been anxiously anticipating the sequel after that major plot twist and crazy ending in the first book. And then, of course, the cover was just released yesterday, so I had to feature the title as my WoW pick today. I'll be listening to the full cast audiobook very soon because I just can't wait to return to that world and see how the experience has changed since I now know what to expect...I've been wanting to do that since I first put the book down!

What are you desperately waiting for this Wednesday? Let us know in the comments or share a link to your own WoW post!

  8. I definitely want to read 99 days now and I still need to read the other series. Thanks for sharing. Here's mine

  9. I love both of these covers, so pretty! I got The Kiss of Deception on audio and I'm kind of pissed because Kirby narrates and I despise his voice, it doesn't even show his name as narrator on audible. Oh well, I'm still gonna give it a shot.

  10. Everyone seems to be eagerly awaiting 99 Days!

    I hope you'll both enjoy these books. :)

    But I like the sound of April's pick, too, although I don't read that much contemporary romance.
    Thanks for sharing, you two! My WoW
