“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release that we’re eagerly anticipating. Let the salivating commence.
My pick this week:
Such a Rush
By: Jennifer Echols
Publisher: MTV Books
Release Date: July 10, 2012
A sexy and poignant romantic tale of a young daredevil pilot caught between two brothers.
High school senior Leah Jones loves nothing more than flying. While she’s in the air, it’s easy to forget life with her absentee mother at the low-rent end of a South Carolina beach town. When her flight instructor, Mr. Hall, hires her to fly for his banner advertising business, she sees it as her ticket out of the trailer park. And when he dies suddenly, she’s afraid her flying career is gone forever.
But Mr. Hall’s teenage sons, golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson, are determined to keep the banner planes flying. Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business – until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers – and the consequences could be deadly.
Why I’m Waiting: I love love love Jennifer Echols and I’m SO EXCITED for this book. I have a secret dream of getting a pilot’s license (and watching Pan Am only intensifies that desire, haha), so I’m thrilled about the fact that Leah flies. And Jennifer’s heroines are always so spunky and absolutely a blast to read about. Can’t wait for this one!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
