Waiting on Wednesday (#54)

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

18005253Shock & Awe (Sidewinder #1)
by Abigail Roux 
Release date: November 11th, 2013

After barely surviving a shootout in New Orleans, Sidewinder medic Kelly Abbott has to suffer through a month of recovery before he can return home to Colorado. He’s not surprised when fellow Sidewinder Nick O’Flaherty stays with him in New Orleans. Nor is he surprised when Nick travels home with him to help him get back on his feet—after all, years on the same Marine Force Recon team bonded the men in ways that only bleeding for a brother can. He’s very surprised, though, when Nick humors his moment of curiosity and kisses him.

Nick knows all of Kelly’s quirks and caprices, so the kiss was a low-risk move on his part . . . or so he thought. But what should’ve been a simple moment unleashes a flood of confusing emotions and urges that neither man is prepared to address.


Now, Kelly and Nick must figure out what they mean to each other—friends and brothers in arms, or something even deeper?—before the past can come back to ruin their tenuous future.
Jess's thoughts: *siiiiigh*. This is exciting. Why? Because this is Nick and Kelly's story. Nick and Kelly are from the M/M series Cut & Run, this is their spin off series, and I am so bloody excited for it! I need it so badly, it's going to help fill the Ty & Zane space that's currently missing. I love Abigail's m/m books and I seriously am so damn excited for this! Before picking this book up people, you MUST read the Cut & Run series first.

Donna's WoW
10838787Pawn (The Blackcoat Rebellion #1)
by Aimee Carter
Release Date: November 26th, 2013

YOU CAN BE A VII. IF YOU GIVE UP EVERYTHING. 

For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country. 

If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked—surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter. 

There's only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed …and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that's not her own, she must decide which path to choose—and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she's only beginning to understand.

Donna's thoughts: I'm excited to see what Aimee Carter next has in store for us. I really loved the Goddess series, so I have high hopes for this.
