Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by “Breaking the Spine” where bloggers can inform all their anticipated readers about upcoming books they’re excited about!
Its good to be back everyone! As the semester dragged on my TBR pile grew … A LOT O.O (they look a lot less like piles and a lot more like mountains). With that being said though, I have found a new found fondness for e-Books, especially those steamy reads no one knows about; and honestly I feel like these books I’ve been reading of late NO ONE knows about SO! I thought I’d bring your attention to TWO of my anticipated reads that come out this year. Both are delectably steamy!
Wethering the Storm by Samantha Towle
Expected Publication: August 20th, 2013
Music journalist Tru Bennett has done the impossible: capture the heart of rock-star bad boy Jake Wethers. Now they’re busy planning a wedding and navigating their new life together in the US. Of course Tru misses London and her best friend, Simone, but living happily ever after with Jake in LA is going to be great…right?
Wrong. Even the bright California sun can’t whitewash the dark side of celebrity coupledom. Greedy music execs, merciless paparazzi, and Jake’s wild past are lurking around every corner. Making matters worse, Jake announces he doesn’t want kids, which just may be a deal breaker.
Tru loves Jake more than anything. But when a devastating crisis threatens to destroy everything they’ve fought for, the couple must face the hard truth: What if, this time, love is not enough?
I ADORED the first in the series “The Mighty Storm” by Samantha Towle and once I finished it last week I went rushing the Kobo.ca to see if the next one was out! The first one was a bit slow to start with the average amount of denial of attraction on both sides but NOW I cannot wait for the sequel!! I need to know what their love can’t withstand – seriously everything has happened to this couple, and dating a rock star/reformed womanizer can’t be easy!
Gabriel’s Redemption by Sylvain Reynard
Expected Publication: December 3rd, 2013
Publisher: Berkley Trade
Format: E-Book & Paperback
Professor Gabriel Emerson has left his position at the University of Toronto to embark on a new life with his beloved Julianne. Together, he’s confident that they can face any challenge. And he’s eager to become a father.
But Julianne’s graduate program threatens Gabriel’s plans, as the pressures of being a student become all consuming. When she is given the honor of presenting an academic lecture at Oxford, Gabriel is forced to confront her about the subject of her presentation – research that conflicts with his own. And in Oxford, several individuals from their past appear, including an old nemesis intent on humiliating Julia and exposing one of Gabriel’s darkest secrets.
In an effort to confront his remaining demons, Gabriel begins a quest to discover more about his biological parents, beginning a chain of events that has startling repercussions for himself, Julianne, and his hope of having a family.
I am addicted to this series! Gabriel’s Inferno & Gabriel’s Rapture are the two before Redemption, and I am enthralled by the literary references, and University feel these books deliver. Not to mention Gabriel is as delicious as 30 something professors/billionairs come ALSO takes place in Toronto, and I like the nostalgic feeling it delivers. Im excited and anticipating the closure to these two characters; they’ve gone through so much and in Redemption I am hoping everything turns out. Gabriel’s character grows with each book so I am excited to see him get his closure. Overall what a fantastic series and after reading non-stop for 3 days I hate waiting till December for the third book!
