Waiting on Wednesday - Forgiving Lies by Molly McAdams

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

Title: Forgiving Lies
Author:  Molly McAdams
Expected Release Date: Oct. 29, 2013

Logan Kash Ryan has spent the last three and a half years working undercover in Tampa Bay, Florida. When a case sends him and his partner to Austin, Texas to follow the trail of a serial killer, their sole focus needs to be on finding the guy before he can find another victim. The last thing Kash needs is the distraction of his beautiful new neighbor, but there’s something about her guarded nature and feisty attitude that makes it impossible to stay away from her.

Rachel Masters has shielded herself from getting hurt again. But when her new neighbor almost takes her car door off with his motorcycle, everything changes. He’s arrogant, gorgeous, tattooed and pierced. Everything she knows she should stay away from. Despite the warnings her initial impression has raised, she quickly falls for him and the way he works at breaking down all her walls. But he’s hiding something, and after everything that has happened in Rachel’s life lately, a guy is the last thing she needs.

From the moment Rachel and Kash meet, they stress the friendship-only rule and continue to push their feelings for each other aside. But as their friendship advances, lines start blurring, and soon their reasons for keeping the other at a distance are forgotten.

Will Kash be able to maintain focus on the investigation while keeping Rachel safe from his real life – or will it all fall apart right in front of him, and will she run when she finds out everything he has been hiding?

“You can’t be friends with the person you were meant to spent your life with”

How does a guy like you promise someone forever at eighteen?”

“Easy,” he said, pressing a soft kiss into the corner of my mouth. “He finds a girl like you.”

Cover Reveal - Flat Out Matt by Jessica Park

Have you read Flat-Out Love?  What are you waiting for.  This is by far one of the best contemporary books out there.   It's full of butterfly inducing twists and turns and now the Author has come up with another story from Matt's POV. 

According to the Author...

"It’s not a sequel, nor is it a full retelling of FOL. Flat-Out Matt is a true companion piece to Flat-Out Love, so it’s for readers who are very familiar with the story. There will be two prequel chapters, roughly 7-8 fan-favorite chapters from FOL retold from Matt’s perspective, and then a steamy Matt and Julie chapter to top things off."

Cover Reveal - Because of You by TE Sivec

Because of You (Playing with Fire #2) 
by TE Sivec 

Release Date: April 29, 2013
Cover Design: Sarah Hansen at Okay Creations

Brady Marshall has made a career of playing it safe. When he decides to do something rash and becomes a Navy SEAL, he thinks he's finally escaped the rigid structure of the high society life his parents forced
down his throat. All he does is trade in one set of rules for another. He follows military protocol to a T, but it still results in the death of an entire team of Navy SEALS and puts his best friends directly in harm's way.

He’s struggled to stay afloat and not drown in grief, guilt, and booze, but he's losing that battle quickly. When his baby sister flees her abusive husband and shows up on his doorstep with his young niece in tow,he has no choice but to clean up his act. He will stop at nothing to protect them and never let them down again, even if it means taking a job that goes against everything he believes in. If protecting a pop star princess who thinks she's better than everyone means he can keep a roof over their head, what other choice does he have?

Layla Carlysle has lived a life of luxury. She's been a star since the young age of fifteen, and every record she releases shoots straight to the top of the charts. She has people surrounding her every single day telling her how amazing she is, how beautiful she is, and how lucky she is, but she’s never felt more alone in her entire life. She wants nothing more than to break free and do what she really wants to do: write her own music, sing her own songs, and find a way to finally be happy with her life. The only thing standing in her way is her mother, Eve Carlysle. Eve has controlled every single aspect of her daughter’s life and will stop at nothing to achieve fame and fortune, even if that means using her daughter to get there. When an overly amorous fan’s letters become increasingly more sinister, Brady will have to suck up his opinion of how the other half lives to take the job seriously. The pair will need to learn to trust each other and put aside their differences before the letters become a reality and someone’s life is in jeopardy.

Brady has been to hell and back, and he refuses to let anyone else get close to him again. Layla has never lived her life for herself, and the emptiness is threatening to break her for good.

Sometimes our lives are already planned for us, but because of you, all of that could change in an instant.
