Waiting on Wednesday: Football and Teenage Angst!

This little gem is hosted over at Breaking the Spine.

One book I can't wait to sink my grubby little claws into is:
Wild Cards (Wild Cards, #1)
(Goodreads Summary)
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?

Why I'm Waiting:  I LOVE Simone Elkeles' Perfect Chemistry series. (And the author is pretty darn cool in person as well) This one sounds fantastic! I love TV shows and movies having to do with football and I LOVE that the main character is a GIRL who plays football! OOOOH yeah. 
Expected Publication: October 1st, 2013


  1. Perfect Chemistry has been on my TBR list for at least 2 years now. It's hard keeping up with all of the series I want to start!
    I really hope you enjoy Wild Cards ;-)
