Waiting on Wednesday (#36)

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

Jess's WoW

Unbeautifully (Undeniable, #2)Unbeautifully (Undeniable #2)
by Madeleine Sheehan
Release date: Summer 2013

The first time I fell in love it was with a pair of blue eyes and a wide dimpled grin.

“Your old man loves ya, Danny girl,” He whispered. “You never ever forget that, yeah?”

I never did. And I never thought I could ever love any man as much as I loved my father. But as we grow, we change, we begin to make our own decisions and thus become independent and self sufficient and start turning away from our parents and turning to others. We form friendships, strong bonds and ties and begin experiencing life outside of the bubble we grew up inside of.

And we fall in love…a second time.

The second time I fell in love it was with a badly scarred face, the stuff of nightmares; the sort of disfigurement that mothers steer their children away from. Ugly, jagged slashes marred the skin from the top of his skull, down over his right eye, an eye that had been dug out of his face with a serrated blade. The scars continued across his cheek, over his lips and down his neck, ending at the top of his shoulder. His chest was a hundred times worse; scar tissue as far as the eye could see.
Jess's Thoughts: Very excited about this. I really loved the first one, and this one is Danny's story and I'm so excited to read her story. Looking forward to finding out more about Ripper and his many scars.

Donna's WoW

Deception (Defiance, #2)Deception (Defiance #2)
by C.J. Redwine
Release date: August 27th, 2013 

Baalboden has been ravaged. The brutal Commander's whereabouts are unknown. And Rachel, grief stricken over her father's death, needs Logan more than ever. With their ragged group of survivors struggling to forge a future, it's up to Logan to become the leader they need—with Rachel by his side. Under constant threat from rival Carrington's army, who is after the device that controls the Cursed One, the group decides to abandon the ruins of their home and take their chances in the Wasteland.

But soon their problems intensify tenfold: someone—possibly inside their ranks—is sabotaging the survivors, picking them off one by one. The chaos and uncertainty of each day puts unbearable strain on Rachel and Logan, and it isn't long before they feel their love splintering. Even worse, as it becomes clear that the Commander will stop at nothing to destroy them, the band of survivors begins to question whether the price of freedom may be too great—and whether, hunted by their enemies and the murderous traitor in their midst, they can make it out of the Wasteland alive. 

In this daring sequel to Defiance, with the world they once loved forever destroyed, Rachel and Logan must decide between a life on the run and standing their ground to fight.

Donna's thoughts: I had trouble picking a WoW this week but Deception was the one that stood out most. I really enjoyed the first book so I'm excited to see where the author takes the story next.

I haven't read the Undeniable but it sounds like a book I would enjoy. I can't wait for Deception, though! I really enjoyed the first book and I can't wait to know what happens next.

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and
now each time a comment is added I get three
emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

I haven't read Defiance yet so I'm not ready to read Deception even though the book sounds awesome... I haven't even seen Jess' pick. I'm definitely going to add in to my to-read list though and I'm going to find a way to get my hands on book one soon. Great picks and thanks for sharing. I hope you girls enjoy reading the books when they come out.

Come check out my WOW post.

I loved Defiance too, Donna! I can't wait to read this one. Jess, I didn't read Undeniable because if things I heard that I knew oils frustrate me. Hope you enjoy the second book just as much as the first. Great picks ladies. :)
