Waiting On Wednesday[9]: Leif (Existence #2.5) by Abbi Glines


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

Title: Leif (Existence #2.5)
Author: Abbi Glines
Publication Date: July 3, 2012
"She was mine. I owned her soul…until Death stole her heart."

Why Am I Waiting?
If you read Existence and Predestined in the Existence trilogy then you know why I don't need a HUGE description to draw me in and have me be all over this book.

While I am EAGERLY awaiting Ceaseless, I can't help but get SUPER excited over a book from Leif's point of view. To say that he was a complicated character is an understatement. I can't wait to get into the mind of the "man" Pagan spurned.


Who Loves Indie Authors?!?!?!?

So, who LOVES Indie authors?!?! THIS girl, that's who!!!
And, if YOU do, too, why don't you head on over right NOW to The Indelibles blog and sign up to be a part of the Indie-pendance Day Blog Tour! It starts July 2nd and goes through the 5th. And, it doesn't require anything crazy to participate!
Here's what you have to do:
~PICK A BOOK: Pick an indie (self-published or small press) book that you either HAVE READ AND LOVED or WANT TO READ.
(I won't lie--this will be the HARDEST part! Who can pick just one?!)

~WRITE A POST: On INDIEpendence day (July 2nd), write a post about that book. It can be a review, an interview with the author, or simply a post highlighting the book. In your post, be sure to include: 1) HOW you found out about the book and 2) WHY you liked it (or WHY you want to read it). Make it easy for people to sample your indie author by providing buy links as well.
(Not too difficult, right?)

~DO A GIVEAWAY (optional): You can give away swag, or a copy of the indie book you're highlighting, or don't do a giveaway at all - it's up to you!

IMPORTANT: you may NOT highlight your own novel or one of the Indelible's novels (this is a Pay It Forward event!) We think all Indelibles books are high quality and deserving of celebration, but we can do that some other time.

~GO TO GOODREADS (optional): Add the Indie book or books you're featuring to our ever-growing INDIEpendence Day List.

Sounds like fun! I hope you'll join us! If you DO decide to participate, make sure you go here and sign up with the Link tool.

Review: Temptation by Karen Ann Hopkins

Title: Temptation
Author: Karen Ann Hopkins
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Pub. Date: June 26, 2012
Acquired: Netgalley
Pre-Order "Temptation":
Amazon / B&N / The Book Despository

Your heart misleads you. That's what my friends and family say. But I love Noah. And he loves me. We met and fell in love in the sleepy farming community of Meadowview, while we rode our horses together through the grassy fields and in those moments in each other's arms. It should be ROSE & NOAH forever, easy. But it won't be. Because he's Amish. And I'm not.

Review: The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines

capTitle: The Vincent Boys
Author: Abbi Glines
Publisher: Self-Published
Pub. Date: Oct. 12, 2011

Purchase "The Vincent Boys":

Being the good girl isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Ashton Gray has grown weary of playing the part to please her parents, and to be worthy of the town’s prince charming, Sawyer Vincent. Maybe That’s why she’s found herself spending time with Sawyer’s cousin, Beau, while he’s away for the summer camping with his family. Beau is nothing like her perfect boyfriend. He’s the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, dangerous in ways she’s only day dreamed about, and the one guy she should stay away from.

Beau never envied Sawyer his loving parents, his big nice home, or his position as quarterback. He loves him like a brother. Which is why he's tried everything in his power to keep his distance from Sawyer’s girlfriend. Even if he has loved her since the age of five, Ashton is Sawyer’s girl, so therefore she’s off limits. But when Sawyer leaves for the summer, Ashton, the one girl Beau would move Heaven and Earth for, decides she wants to get into trouble. Stabbing the one person who’s always accepted him and stood by him in the back, is the cost of finally holding Ashton Gray in his arms. Is she worth losing his cousin over?.... Hell Yeah.

Blurb from Goodreads:
The gods forbade her to love, but love is a powerful force. Acacia has been created purely for Eros' pleasure but discovers within moments of being summoned into his presence that he has no interest in her whatsoever. Rejected, she is banished to Earth to serve as Eros' minion with the task of promoting the blissful state of love among all those around her, a state she must never indulge in with a human being herself on pain of immediate destruction. And then comes Josh, someone whose power of attraction over Acacia is so intense she will find it utterly impossible to resist him. But is he human? Is he a god? Or is he a trick of the gods? And what would happen should they kiss?

Shadows (Lux #0.5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout (4/5 Stars)

Pub. Date: Feb. 20, 2012
Acquired: Purchased through Amazon
Purchase Shadows:
Amazon / B&N

Blurb from Goodreads:
The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. As a Luxen, an alien life form on Earth, human girls are…well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane.

Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable.

Bethany can’t deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren’t a complication she wants, she can’t stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she’s drawn in.

Captivated. Lured. Loved.

Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence...and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can’t stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.
