Waiting on Wednesday (34) Magical Compass


Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!


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




Tyson Compass, as one of the famed Compass quads, is not a wizard used to living with regrets. Except for one: Grace Carter. 

Grace is a healer witch he rejected many years ago. After completely disappearing from his life, she has returned, and turned his world upside down. The attraction between them flares strongly, but she has not forgotten or forgiven his callous rebuff when they were teens. 

Tyson does everything he can to prove he will never hurt her again, and just when he thinks there might be a chance for them, she has to leave again. She makes him promise not to follow her - a promise he honors for as long as he can. But after almost two months with no word, he’s done waiting. He’s going to find his girl. 

With a little help from his brothers, he tracks her down, only to find Grace betrayed by her family ... tortured ... hurt. His rage knows no bounds. He will do everything he can to bring her family to justice, to find out why they turned on her. 

By unlocking these secrets, though, he will discover that Grace is so much more than just a healer witch. She holds a secret that could save the world of Faerie. Or destroy it. 



Why am I waiting?



This is the second book in the spin-off of the Supernatural Prison series. It is one of my all time favorite series. I still can't believe that Tyson let Grace leave and he has a heck of a lot to make-up for. Super excited to watch him grovel.

“Morgan said that his mother said that Miss Kildaire is sitting on a shelf."

Zach had to think about that one for a few seconds. "He said she's on the shelf?"

"Uh-huh." An emphatic nod. "I don't know why Miss Kildaire would sit on a shelf, but that's what Morgan said."

"I'm guessing there's more."

"And then Morgan said that his mother said that Miss Kildaire was too fat to get a man."

What a load of horseshit, Zach thought. Morgan's mother was probably some shriveled-up jealous twit. "I see."

"And then Morgan said she was a cripple."

Zach had a sudden urge to punch out the little rat himself.

I adored each of the stories in this collection. This one tugs at my heart because it starts off with Bryan in trouble with his teacher, for reasons she doesn't need to know.

Waiting on Wednesday (33) Undercover Attraction



Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

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




Scandal. Wealth. Power. Seduction. Welcome to the world of the O'Malleys.


Ex-cop Charlotte Finch used to think there was a clear line between right and wrong. Then her fellow officers betrayed her, and the world is no longer so black and white. Especially when it's Aiden O'Malley, one of the most dangerous men in Boston, who offers her a chance for justice. The only catch: she'll have to pretend to be his fiancée for his plan to work.

Aiden can't afford to let anyone see the man behind the mask. To run the O'Malley empire, he has to be cool and controlled at all times. But the moment he meets Charlie, they're playing with fire. Her slightest touch is enough to send him over the edge. At first their "engagement" was a way to eliminate his enemies. Now he'll do whatever it takes to keep her safe-- even if he has to destroy his own family to do it.



Why am I waiting?

I have read every book in the series. It is the only mobster series that I have been able to get into. I really want t see Aiden fall in love, with a cop none the less.

Waiting on Wednesday (32) Chosen One


Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!


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



The next book in the best-selling Forever Evermore series as Caro goes where no spirit elemental has gone before...

When Philip Masterson sends Caro back in time, he doesn’t expect to set off a series of events that will see her return stronger and more powerful than ever before. But her time spent with the Prodigies, Kings, and Elders in the nineties has long-reaching consequences that no one could have foreseen, consequences that increase tensions between the Mystical leadership when peace is needed.

Then Caro discovers something that changes the entire trajectory of her life, and finds herself torn: between the man she loves and the man who could mean everything, and the life that she’s chosen and the life that she was born to lead.


Why am I waiting?

I honestly feel like I have been waiting forever for this book. The cliffhanger at the ending of Chosen Fool has left me wondering what the heck is going on with Caro.  It is finally up for pre-order and is expected to release on Dec. 4!!!

“No more dancing with any male but me. No more time to learn who you are before you have to hold that personality against mine. No more freedom to explore your sensuality before I own it.” 


Seeing Seinna with another male looks to be all the push that Hawke needed. I love it that he went all alpha male on her.

She searched his face with her gaze. "We know each other. We have a history. We have things in common. Same background, same set of friends growing up. I'm pretty. There would be no learning curve."

Thanks, Rynda.

"I would be a good wife."

"I'm in love with someone else."

"But why, Rogan? What is it about her? Is it because she's violent like you?"

"I was asleep," he said. "And she woke me up."

Normally, when Rynda started talking I got annoyed. Not so much here because Conner totally melts me with this answer. The rest of the conversation is pretty enlightening too.If you haven't binged this series yet you need to.

Waiting on Wednesday (31) Heart on Fire




Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

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



The riveting conclusion to the Kingmaker Chronicles, available January 2018!

Who is Catalia Fisa?
With the help of pivotal figures from her past, Cat begins to understand the root of her exceptional magic, her fated union with Griffin Sinta, and Griffin's role in shaping her destiny.

Only Cat holds the key to unlocking her own power, and that means finally accepting herself, her past, and her future in order to protect her loved ones, confront her murderous mother, and taking a final, terrifying step--reuniting all three realms and taking her place as the Queen of Thalyria.

What doesn't kill her will only make her stronger...we hope.


Why am I waiting?



I absolutely adore this series! The relationships between Cat and Griffin, his guard and his family make this book. Plus, I am dying to see her go up against her evil momma.

She turns on her heel, halting in place at the sound of Gemini's growl. "One more thing."


She stops, her spin stiffening when she hears him stalk forward, his voice unbearable rigid. "I swear on my honor that if you ever risk my mate's safety again, I'll kill you and him."


Of Flame and Fate Kindle Location 581


Gemini can be one scary beta when he needs to be. This is him after on of Taran's missions do no go as planned.

Waiting on Wednesday (30) If There's No Tomorrow


Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!


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




Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She's ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications and to maybe let her childhood best friend, Sebastian, know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be one of opportunities and chances. 

Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything. 

Now Lena isn't looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian could never forgive her for what happened. 

For what she let happen. 

With the guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when tomorrow isn't even guaranteed?


Why am I waiting?


Umm..it is a JLA book... 'nuff said.

"You think I want to hurt her?  You think it doesn't eat at me that I can't have her?  You think I don't constantly wonder where she is, what she's doing, and if she's safe?"

Carnal Sins page 9

I really hope that Trey doesn't give in to Nick too easily.  Yeah, these are pretty words but he has been a complete jerk to Shaya and she deserves better.

Waiting on Wednesday (29) A Poison Dark and Drowning



Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

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




The magicians want her to lead.
The sorcerers want her to lie.
The demons want her blood.
Henrietta wants to save the one she loves.
But will his dark magic be her undoing?

In this seductive and explosive second book in the Kingdom on Fire series, Jessica Cluess delivers her signature mix of magic, passion, and teen warriors fighting for survival. Hand to fans of Victoria Aveyard, Sarah J. Maas, and Kiersten White.

Henrietta doesn’t need a prophecy to know that she’s in danger. She came to London to be named the chosen one, the first female sorcerer in centuries, the one who would defeat the Ancients. Instead, she discovered a city ruled by secrets. And the biggest secret of all: Henrietta is not the chosen one.

Still, she must play the role in order to keep herself and Rook, her best friend and childhood love, safe. But can she truly save him? The poison in Rook’s system is transforming him into something monstrous as he begins to master dark powers of his own. So when Henrietta finds a clue to the Ancients’ past that could turn the tide of the war, she persuades Blackwood, the mysterious Earl of Sorrow-Fell, to travel up the coast to seek out strange new weapons. And Magnus, the brave, reckless flirt who wants to win back her favor, is assigned to their mission. Together, they will face monsters, meet powerful new allies, and uncover the most devastating weapon of all: the truth.


Why am I waiting?



Did you read the first book? If you did you would know why but if you didn't the characters in this world will drag you in. Henrietta, Rook, Blackwood and Magnus all have a way of making you want to know what happens to them.

The gabby woman continued, "Your tattoos and muscles are totally feminine, at least, to me. You're tough, but in a womanly way. I hear a lot of guys totally like tattoos on woman nowadays."


Three "totallys." Del wanted to turn it into a drinking game, a sip for each one. She took another drink of beer, then deliberately wiped her mouth on the back of her colored forearm, playing up her differences to get the greatest effect. "Thanks, Grace. That means a lot, coming from you."


What To Do With a Bad Boy page 140


I love Del and how she handles the "well-meaning" Grace. Grace on the other hand I hated and really hoped Mike could see through her act.
