Waiting on Wednesday #16

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

Happy Hump Day! Even though today feels like Tuesday. Gotta love three day weekends to throw you off for the rest of the week. Anyhoo, lets get to the real reason we're here. 

Author: Jay Crownover
Release Date: October 21, 2014

After the only girl he ever loved told him he would never be enough, Rowdy St. James knocked the Texas dust off his boots and decided he was going to do everything in his power to live up to his nickname. Life was all about a good time, good friends and never taking much too seriously. Rowdy learned his lesson early on, when you care that much about anything it can destroy you, and he never wants to risk feeling like that again. Only now he has a new coworker, a ghost from the past who’s making him question every lesson he ever learned.
Salem Cruz grew up in a house with too many rules, too many regulations, and no fun allowed. That never worked for her so she left it all behind as soon as she could, but she never forgot the sweet, blue-eyed boy next door who’d been in love with her little sister. Fate and good intentions from an old friend have placed her right in Rowdy’s path and she’s determined to show him he picked the wrong sister all those years ago. A mission that is going along perfectly until the one person that ties them together shows up and could very well tear them back.
I spent all weekend reading the first four books in this series. To say I’m addicted is an understatement. Rowdy was always somewhat in the background of the other books and I can’t wait to see him in the forefront. Plus, any guy described as Johnny Bravo is bound to be fun.

Title: Falls The Shadow
Author: Stefanie Gaither
Release Date: September 16, 2014

When Cate Benson was a kid, her sister, Violet, died. Two hours after the funeral, Cate’s family picked up Violet’s replacement. Like nothing had happened. Because Cate’s parents are among those who decided to give their children a sort of immortality—by cloning them at birth—which means this new Violet has the same smile. The same perfect face. Thanks to advancements in mind-uploading technology, she even has all of the same memories as the girl she replaced.
She also might have murdered the most popular girl in school.
At least, that’s what the paparazzi and the anti-cloning protestors want everyone to think: that clones are violent, unpredictable monsters. Cate is used to hearing all that. She’s used to defending her sister, too. But Violet has vanished, and when Cate sets out to find her, she ends up in the line of fire instead. Because Cate is getting dangerously close to secrets that will rock the foundation of everything she thought was true.
In a thrilling debut, Stefanie Gaither takes readers on a nail-biting ride through a future that looks frighteningly similar to our own time and asks: how far are you willing to go to keep your family together?
Finally a WoW that I don't have to wait forever for! I love sister books and this one sounds extra intriguing as it's a thriller, too. It will be interesting to see how Cate deals with Violet's clone.

What has you waiting this week?


  1. Oh, wow, both sound tempting...I think I'll go with the Texas guy knocking the dust off of his boots...hard to get that image out of my head! LOL

    Enjoy...and thanks for sharing. Here's mine:


  2. I've only read RULE from Jay Crownover and while it was a very entertaining read, I had some issues about the writing style and I felt that if the writing would have been a little tighter, it would have been an incredible read. But I am willing to try out her other books and Rowdy' story sounds delish! :)

    I've seen Falls the Shadow in several of WoW posts and the issue of cloning is an interesting topic. I only started watching Orphan Black so go figure. LOL :)
