This week I'm waiting on...

Wild Cards by Simone Elkeles
Releasing: September 24, 2013

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?

I like my bad boys done well, and Simone Elkeles seems like the woman for the job. I'm looking forward to this release also because the Perfect Chemistry series, again by this author, was outstanding in its genre. I'm hoping that Wild Cards will continue the tradition. When I think steamy bad boys? Fuentes kind of pops immediately to mind. Maybe Derek will bring new meaning to the words, fingers crossed!

Are you waiting too?
