Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for.

Published by: Entangled Teen

Release date: October 7th, 2014

Seventeen-year-old Annie Lucas is too young to remember her dad’s glory days as a pitcher for the Yankees. So when her father is offered a coaching position with the Kansas City Royals, Annie is intrigued to see the baseball side of her dad. Of course, knowing he’ll be a mentor to hot young rookie pitcher, Jason Brody, certainly makes it more enticing. 

After an awkward first meeting with “Brody” involving very little clothing and a much-too-personal locker room interview, Annie’s convinced she knows Brody’s type: arrogant, self-involved, bossy. As her dad grows closer to the pitching phenom, the friction between Brody and Annie increases. But when opening day arrives and it looks like both her dad and Brody may lose their dream jobs, Annie steps up and offers support. She and Brody call a truce that grows into friendship—and beyond. Falling for a rising star who’s quickly reaching a level that involves rabid female fans is not what Annie would call smart, except suddenly she’s getting hints that maybe this crush isn’t one-sided after all. Could someone like Brody actually fall for a girl like her?

Why I want to read it:  I read Letters to Nowhere by Julie Cross and I loved it, it follows that her next book would also be in my TBR list.  I love the premise of the book and also the cover.

What are you waiting for this week?

  1. Ooo, that’s so cool, I didn’t know Julie Cross was publishing with Entangled! That’s awesome. I haven’t read her time-travel-related books, or her New Adult books, but I’m very familiar with her. She’s super great! I hope you read and love this one, Liza!

    Have a terrific Wednesday!
