Waiting on Wednesday #21

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

Been a while but that's okay! 

Aside from the book I'm waiting on today, I'm also waiting for Book Con this weekend! Second year in a row. I'll only be there Saturday, but I'll let you all know how it goes. Also, next weekend I'll be heading to Atlantic City (For the first time.) for the Lovely Ladies and Naughty Books signing! I'm hella excited for that as well! 

Back to the book...

Title: A Pound of Flesh
Author: Sophie Jackson
Release Date: June 9, 2015

Lose your heart to your new bad boy book boyfriend. Wes Carter - sexy, edgy, behind bars, with emotional scars as permanent as the ink on his skin, just waiting to be healed by love...
Fans of Samantha Young, Jodi Ellen Malpas, Jamie McGuire, Katy Evans and Prison Break will find this powerful love story utterly addictive and unforgettable.
Their love is forbidden. But won't be denied... Can true love heal the deepest scars?
For Kat Lane, teaching inmates at a New York prison is her way of upholding the legacy of her beloved father, murdered fifteen years ago. But when new student Wes Carter walks into her classroom, she's shaken by the strength of her attraction to him. Carter is as handsome as he is dangerous, as mysterious as he is quick-witted - and he ensures people keep their distance. Yet vibrant Kat bypasses his defences and challenges him to reveal the real man behind the intimidating reputation. As their emotional barriers crumble, their inescapable but forbidden feelings cannot be ignored. But will Kat's discovery of Carter's role on the night her father died force them apart...or bind their hearts for ever?
A Pound of Flesh is a tale of loyalty, redemption and all-consuming love against the odds, introducing an irresistible bad boy hero...

Way back, when I used to read fanfiction, I would read so many stories that they would start to blend into one another. This one however, wasn't one of them. I know some people don't like to support fic-to-publish books, but when it is good, I like to give them a go. I never finished it before so I can't wait to see what has changed and how the transition goes. Plus, I like redemption stories as well. They hit me where my heart lives. 

What has you gripping your sheets? And any weekend plans have you bubbling with excitement?

    And A POUND OF FLESH looks really good. I love that Kat teaches inmates; such an interesting career choice! And Wes sounds delicious.
