Waiting on Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.

21 Stolen Kisses by Lauren Blakely
Release Date: May 26, 2015

Goodreads Summary:
When I first met him I resisted.
Like any forbidden love, I told myself he was a crush, and it would pass.
That was a lie. It never faded.

And I never expected he would fall for me just as hard.

There were so many reasons that should have kept us apart, least of all, the decade that separated us. Growing up in New York City, I learned early on that love is a double-edged sword. Love broke up my parents, love took away my friends, and love — the big, intense, never-been-like-this-before love — landed me in therapy. Now I’m heading to college, and it’s time to give love a clean slate again. But, can I really start over when he’s still in my life Because the one man I’ve always wanted, is also the only guy I absolutely can’t have…And he wants me just as fiercely.

Can I settle for anything less than the love of my life?

Why I'm Waiting:
This is very intriguing! I can't wait to get my hands on this book!

This is Not a Love Story by Keren David
Release Date: May 7, 2015

Goodreads Summary:
Kitty dreams of a beautiful life, but that's impossible in suburban London where her family is haunted by her father's unexpected death. So when her mum suggests moving to Amsterdam to try a new life, Kitty doesn't take much persuading. Will this be her opportunity to make her life picture perfect?

In Amsterdam she meets moody, unpredictable Ethan, and clever, troubled Theo. Two enigmatic boys, who each harbour their own secrets. In a beautiful city and far from home, Kitty finds herself falling in love for the first time.

But will love be everything she expected? And will anyone's heart survive?

Why I'm Waiting:
This sounds like a book I would really like! Except for the NOT a love story part. Makes me think it's not going to have a happy ending.

The Virgin Romance Novelist

The Virgin Romance Novelist by Meghan Quinn

Goodreads Summary:
Her bosom heaved at an alarming rate as his rough hand found its way down to her soft, yet wiry briar patch...

Can you say briar patch in a romance novel? What about meat sword? That’s what it is…a meat sword, right, all meaty and sword like, slaying through the inner dungeons of a woman’s dark desires. What about breasts? Do bosoms really heave?

God, I have no idea what happens when private parts touch.

I’m a virgin trying to write a romance novel and can’t seem to write past a sex scene thanks to my lack of experience.

My two best friends encourage me to drop the pen for a while and gain some real life practice through multiple dating facets such as blind dates, online profiles, and random hookups.

But losing my virginity is proving to be tougher than expected…

My Review:
Let me start out by saying that this book is definitely mean for new adult to adult audiences. I would not recommend this book to younger audiences. That being said, it was a great book. It had me laughing the ENTIRE time I was reading it. I did not want to put the book down. There were parts of this book that had me cringing as well. It was all around a great book.

My favorite part was watching the romance build between the main character and a certain man. It was frustrating at times, but it was really sweet. The happy ending made it all worth it. I also enjoyed the friendship between the three roommates. I really loved this book, and would definitely recommend it.

5 stars
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
