WoW - Wild Cards

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Wild Cards
Simone Elkeles
September 24, 2013 

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've read all of Simone's book with the exception of her How To Ruin series and I love them all. Therefore, I have really high expectations and excitement level for this one. Can't wait to get more of Simone's stories. Also, I really love the synopsis, it reminds me of Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally, another favourite.

What Are You Waiting On?



  1. You know, I've honestly never read anything by Simone Elkeles. I know a lot of people rave about her, but I didn't even know who she was until recently. But this looks good!

    1. Wow! Honestly, I stumbled upon her without any previous knowledge on her or her books, but I really enjoyed them. So, I hope you decide to check them out, they are among my favourite.


  2. I've seen this as a couple peoples WoW this week! I have been wanting to read the Perfect Chemistry trilogy but just haven't gotten around to it yet. :( All her books sound great though!

  3. I'm unfamiliar with Simone Elkeles' work, but I've seen a lot of people excited about this book recently. I hope you love it when you get to read it!

  4. I've never read any Elkeles but the plot for this one is so interesting to me that I had to request it-hope my first experience with Elkeles is good!
