Waiting on Wednesday #81

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on! 

Title: Wild Cards
Author: Simone Elkeles
Release Date: October 1st, 2013
Publisher: Walker Children's

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.

This book jumped to the top of my wishlist from the first moment I heard of it.  Being a fan of the author's Perfect Chemistry series, I know what steamy romance she's capable of creating.  Even though the cover isn't as appealing to me now as it would have been a few years back, I have no doubt that I'll pick this book up as soon as it comes out!

What awesome title are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. I can't wait for this book. Sounds awesome!

  2. I'm actually not as excited for this book as I thought I would be once I found out she had a new book coming out. It just doesn't sound like anything I'm interested in.... but I'll probably give in and read it anyways, lol.

    Here's mine:

  3. Well that's different. Not sure how I feel about it, but I do love her work.

  4. I want this book! It's Simone Elkeles :D


  5. I have had this on my tbr for SO long! I can't wait to read it.
    My WoW

  6. I seriously cannot wait for this one, either! I've seen it around often lately and boy, it seems like it's exactly what I love most in books. I'm a huge fan of sports and unique contemporary romance novels and I've always been curious about Simone Elkeless's books. So - perfect! And thanks for sharing :)
