Waiting on Wednesday (35): Wild Cards by Simone Elkeles

Waiting on Wednesday (35):
Waiting On Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that highlights to-be-released books.

Wild Cards by: Simone Elkeles

After getting kicked out of boarding school, bad boy Derek Fitzpatrick has no choice but to live with his ditzy stepmother while his military dad is deployed. Things quickly go from bad to worse when he finds out she plans to move them back to her childhood home in Illinois. Derek’s counting the days before he can be on his own, and the last thing he needs is to get involved with someone else’s family drama.

Ashtyn Parker knows one thing for certain--people you care about leave without a backward glance. A football scholarship would finally give her the chance to leave. So she pours everything into winning a state championship, until her boyfriend and star quarterback betrays them all by joining their rival team. Ashtyn needs a new game plan, but it requires trusting Derek—someone she barely knows, someone born to break the rules. Is she willing to put her heart on the line to try and win it all?
Wild Cards (Wild Cards, #1)
I totally adore every single one of the Fuentes brothers and I love the sound of her new series. I very much look forward to learning much more about bad boy Derek. :) And I love kick ass girls.

Thoughts about the Cover: I like it a lot. It has a similar feel to the Perfect Chemistry series, so of course I love it.

Release Date: October 1, 2013

  4. I requested this one from NetGalley! But Bloomsbury hasn't gotten back to me yet. They immediately approved me for Where the Stars Still Shine, but not this one or Crown of Midnight. Ah! I wish you better luck! :)

  5. Picked this up at BEA and am so excited!
