WAITING ON WEDNESDAY #1

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

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:




Courtney's Pick: 
Rock My Bed by Michelle A. Valentine 
(Black Falcon # 2) 
Expected Publication Date: 4/22/13

Everything always seems to fall into place for twenty-four year-old Aubrey Jenson, except for when it comes to her luck with men. Bad boys always draw her in and crush her heart, and Black Falcon’s lead guitarist, Riff, is no exception. After sharing a few wild nights together, she leaves him behind, knowing a guy like Riff isn’t the relationship type, merely just a play thing. 

When she returns to New York, she tries to get the passion she felt in Riff’s arms out of her head by dating Isaac, a successful representative at Center Stage Marketing. Just when she thinks she’s forgotten Riff, she’s forced to see him again when her best friend, Lanie, ropes her into being a bridesmaid for her upcoming wedding to Black Falcon front man, Noel. 

Sparks fly instantly between Aubrey and Riff when they’re forced to reunite, and suddenly she finds herself caught between the man that’s good for her and the one who completely rocks her in every way. 

**New Adult Romance--Book 2 in the Black Falcon series. This book can be read without reading book one.**

Why I Picked It: I fell in love with Michelle A. Valentine's writing in Rock the Heart. Riff was a hard character in that one, so I can't wait to see the big tough guy fall hard. From the teaser's I've read this story starts in the middle of Rock the Heart, so we get to see the different points of view of Riff, Noel (or well, what Noel was doing when he wasn't with Lanie) and Aubrey! I can't wait!!  


 

Shelley's Pick:
Second Chance Boyfriend by Monica Murphy
Lost.
Expected Publication: 4/9/13

That one single word best describes my life at this very moment. I lost the last games of the season and both my team and my coach blame me. I lost the last two months because I drowned in my own despair like a complete loser. And I lost the only girl who ever mattered because I was afraid being with me would destroy her.

But now I realize how truly lost I am without her. She has become my story…and even though she acts like she’s moved on, I know she still thinks about me just as much as I think about her. She’s beautiful, sweet—and so damn vulnerable, all I want to do is help her. Be there for her.

Love her…

If only I could convince Fable to give me a second chance. Then I wouldn’t feel so lost anymore, and neither would she. We could be found together.

Forever.

Why I Picked It: The first book, One Week Girlfriend, ended on a cliffhanger and I'm just so dang curious about what will happen next. Will Drew and Fable be able to work through their problems and have the happily ever after they deserve? Will that wicked, shrew of a stepmother get what's coming for her? Will Fable have financial security? Will Drew and his father ever talk about the truth of what happened to Drew? I have so many questions and I CANNOT wait to see what Monica Murphy does with the rest of this story. You can check out the first chapter of Second Chance Boyfriend here and our review of her first novel here.
