"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry. Here's the synopsis:
"What if the last person you should fall in love with is the only one who
can save you?
"I won't tell anyone, Echo. I promise". Noah tucked a
curl behind my ear. It had been so long since someone touched me like he
did. Why did it have to be Noah Hutchins? His dark brown eyes shifted
to my covered arms. "You didn't do that - did you. It was done to you?"
No one ever asked that question. They stared. They whispered. They
laughed. But they never asked. The room tilted...
No one knows what
really happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock
boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms.
Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of the horrible night that
changed her life forever. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot loner
in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough
attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she
could never have imagined. Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses
to go away. And now Echo has to ask herself just what she'll risk for
the one guy who might teach her how to love again..."
I'm kind of cheating with this pick as although it's not out for a few months, I have already read it and let me tell you, it was one of those OMGILOVEDIT kind of books. Any sort of forbidden or unlikely romance totally floats my boat and I knew I needed this book when I first read the synopsis. Good job Mira Ink happened to send me an ARC (thank you Mira Ink!). I really like the UK cover but the US cover does it for me and in case you haven't seen it, here it is...
All I can say is that I'm totally buying a finished copy for my shelves and I highly recommend the book. Watch out for my review ;)
Pushing the Limits is published on 31st July, 2012 in the US and 3rd August, 2012 in the UK. To find out more about the the Katie and her book, please click here to visit her website.
