Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
The Black Key (The Lone City #3) by Amy Ewing
Publication Date: October 4th, 2016
The Jewel was one of my favorite books of 2014. I finished it in less than a day, I mean it was truly amazing! However, The White Rose just didn't hold me like The Jewel did! I'm really hoping this last book in the series packs the same emotional punch like the first book did. Regardless - I will read it as soon as it is released!
Cassie's Waiting On:
Publication Date: November 28, 2016
Jillian Lima’s whole world was destroyed in a span of a few hours. The same night her childhood love, Brock ‘the Beast’ Mitchell, broke her heart, her life was irrevocably altered by the hand of a stranger with a gun. It takes six years to slowly glue together the shattered pieces of her life, but Jillian is finally ready to stop existing in a past full of pain and regret. She takes a job at her father’s martial arts Academy and she’s going out on her first date since a failed relationship that was more yuck than yum. Jillian is determined to start living.
She just never expected Brock to be a part of her life again. But he’s firmly back in her life before she knows it, and not only is he older, he’s impossibly more handsome, more teasing and more everything. And when he sees Jillian, he’s no longer capable of thinking of her as the little girl who was his shadow growing up or the daughter of the man who gave him a second chance at life. He sees the woman who’d always been there for him, the one person who believed in him no matter what.
Brock knows she’s the one he should’ve made his, and what begins as a tentative friendship quickly turns to red-hot chemistry that sparks a flame that burns brighter than lust. Falling for Brock again risks more than her heart, because when the past sorrow-filled and guilt-ridden past resurfaces, and a web of lies threatens to rip them apart, the fallout could lay waste to everything they’ve fought to build together, and destroy the dreams of those they care most about.
I honestly can't even tell you how excited I am for this new novel from Jen Armentrout! It's sad to know that this will be the last in the Wait for You series (I highly recommend reading it if you haven't already), as this is one of my all time favorites of JLA. Plus, the cover model is BT Urruela, and when I saw he was one the cover...cue fangirl freakout! I love this guy and in case you didn't notice, he's super hot (seriously check out his Instagram and prepare to drool). I can't wait to read Brock and Jillian's story, as well as see all of my favorite characters from the other books. November can't get here soon enough!
