Waiting On Wednesday (113) The Things You Kiss Goodbye by Leslie Connor

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

Wednesday is my favorite day of the week because I get to share books that I am super excited about and can't wait to read.

Hardcover, 368 pages
Expected publication: June 24th 2014 by Katherine Tegen Books

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Bettina Vasilis can hardly believe it when basketball star Brady Cullen asks her out, and she just about faints when her strict father actually approves of him.

But when school starts up again, Brady changes. What happened to the sweet boy she fell in love with? Then she meets a smoldering guy in his twenties, and this “cowboy” is everything Brady is not—gentle, caring, and interested in getting to know the real Bettina.

Bettina knows that breaking up with Brady would mean giving up her freedom—and that it would be inappropriate for anything to happen between her and Cowboy. Still, she can’t help that she longs for the scent of his auto shop whenever she’s anywhere else.

When tragedy strikes, Bettina must tell her family the truth—and kiss goodbye the things she thought she knew about herself and the men in her life.

Leslie Connor has written a lyrical, heartbreaking, and ultimately hopeful story about family, romance, and the immense power of love.

I'm always adding contemporaries to my tbr, and I saw this one when it popped up on Edelweiss recently. Sounds interesting.

What are you waiting on this week?

  8. Ooo, the cover of this book reminds me of Jennifer E. Smith's books! With the font and the background. So cool! I haven't given this book much thought, but I'll keep an eye out! I'm not one for contemporary novels. Hope you love it!
