WAITING ON WEDNESDAY




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



This week's WoW selection is...


The Book of Broken HeartsSeries: Stand alone
Genre: Contemporary Young Adult
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: 5/21/13
 
When all signs point to heartbreak, can love still be a rule of the road? A poignant and romantic novel from the author of Bittersweet and Twenty Boy Summer.

Jude has learned a lot from her older sisters, but the most important thing is this: The Vargas brothers are notorious heartbreakers. She’s seen the tears and disasters that dating a Vargas boy can cause, and she swore an oath—with candles and a contract and everything—to never have anything to do with one.

Now Jude is the only sister still living at home, and she’s spending the summer helping her ailing father restore his vintage motorcycle—which means hiring a mechanic to help out. Is it Jude’s fault he happens to be cute? And surprisingly sweet? And a Vargas?

Jude tells herself it’s strictly bike business with Emilio. Her sisters will never find out, and Jude can spot those flirty little Vargas tricks a mile away—no way would she fall for them. But Jude’s defenses are crumbling, and if history is destined to repeat itself, she’s speeding toward some serious heartbreak…unless her sisters were wrong?

Jude may have taken an oath, but she’s beginning to think that when it comes to love, some promises might be worth breaking.



Why I'm Waiting ~ It's Sarah Ockler, guys! I fell in love with her writing in Bittersweet. I need this one. Bad.


What are you waiting for? Be sure to tell me in the comments.

  30. I have only ever read Twenty Boy Summer and I have been trying to find time to read her other books and have just been putting it off. Now I have another to add to my list.

    I hope you enjoy this once it comes out.

  31. You're always introducing me to great sounding contemporaries. This one is definitely going on my tbr list. I actually bought Bittersweet a couple months back but haven't gotten around to reading it. If I end up loving it *like I expect* I know I'll be rushing out to get this one too!
