Waiting on Wednesday (185)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Wild Cards by Simone Elkeles

Another year, another move—with a Dad in the military, starting a new school in the middle of the year doesn’t faze Derek. But moving with his new step-mother to live with the father and sister she hasn’t seen in seven years? Awkward. Even worse—his new step-aunt, Ashtyn, is seventeen, hot—and the kicker for the high school’s football team. A football prodigy, Derek has stayed as far as possible from the field since his mom’s death—and not even an infuriatingly sexy housemate who talks stats and dreams of a Division I scholarship can change his mind. But when Ashtyn’s quarterback boyfriend backs out of their road trip to a prestigious summer football camp run by top recruiters, Derek and his car become Ashtyn’s only route to making her dreams of playing college ball come true. Four nights. Multiple state lines. Football. Secrets. Sex. This is one road trip neither of them will forget.

In a steamy new series featuring a new, irresistible band of teammates, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Simone Elkeles blends the romance and drama of Friday Night Lights with her signature explosive storytelling.

Release Date: October 1, 2013

  13. I am beyond excited for this one!!

  14. I did not find this book at my favorite online bookstore.. So, suggest me from where to order books online..? I am kinda desperate to read this one.. :)

  15. This blurb has the magic words: Friday Night Lights! This may be too steamy for my tastes but I definitely want to give it a try!

  16. Yes, yes, yes!!! This one caught my eye immediately when I first saw it! First of all - everyone is raving about Elkeless's novels (and I haven't read one yet!) and then it has sports in it!!! I love sports and I love books, but what I love the absolute most is sports in books :D So, yeah...I've got to get my hands on that book - and I hope you'll get it soon!
