Waiting on Wedneday #13

 

Is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases were eagerly anticipating.

The book I'm most excited about this week is...

Falling
 Falling by Jolene Perry
 Publication date: November 17th 2012.
 Publisher: Next Door Publishing 


Dana is definitely not the kind of girl to be living in the dump of a wilderness lodge she finds herself waitressing in. But when Craig, the sexy cop who’s handling the murder case where she’s a witness, suggests it—it seems like a good idea. Now she’s got no BMW, no shopping and an assortment of hairy Alaskan men who definitely belong in a run-down old lodge. Her exciting visits from Craig are getting less exciting, and the lodge owner, Jason, is quickly moving from grouchy and judgmental, to funny, smart and unexpectedly complex.

Jason knows exactly the type of girl Dana is—beautiful, spoiled, and high maintenance. She’s everything that hurt him in the past, and why he now lives as far away from city life as he can manage. If he wasn’t so hard-up for help, he would have never said yes to his friend, Craig. Despite his reservations, Dana becomes the perfect antidote to everything in his life—both his disaster of a divorce and precocious little sister who shows up on his doorstep. Jason realizes he’s falling for Dana too late to stop it, or even slow it down.

As the trial approaches, Dana knows it’s time to move on with her life—but is her life back in the city she left or with a guy she never meant to fall for?
I love romances where the characters find love in places they were not expecting, or in Jason's case where he avoids.  I can't wait to see Dana and Jason's love develop.  This description just sounds so amazing and I've been enjoying the New Adult genre so much.  I loved Jolene's writing in The Next Door Boys so I know this will not disappoint!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?  Link us up, we'd love to know!

  2. If there's a love story on the horizon, I know Rachel won't be too far behind. ;) This one sounds fun, and I remember how much you liked this author's previous books!

    Speaking of romances, I'm happy to see you dipped your toes into urban fantasy. You HAVE to read THE SHADOW READER soon, okay? I am sure you will love it.
