Simone Elkeles

Publication date: October 1st 2013

Goodreads Purchase

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?

    Wow, there are a lot of releases this week. I think the ones I’m most excited for are Fearsome Dreamer, Skulk, How To Love, and Perfect Ruin. I don’t think Wild Cards would be my sort of thing. So many books added to my TBR again. Thanks Giselle! 🙂

  2. Amy @ Book Loving Mom

    Until I am done with my blogging break I should really stop looking at these posts. They only remind me how horribly behind I am lol!! I loved A Little Too Far, and I am reading Allure right now and enjoying it. I have a few of those that I still need to read though. *sigh*

  3. Pili

    Wow, so so many releases!! And so many I didn’t even know about! I seriously shouldn’t be adding any more books to the TBR pile, but I can’t help it!

    I’m super excited about Perfect Ruin!!

  4. Audris

    There are seriously so many amazing books coming out. I need to start making a “To Buy” list. But I’m especially excited for Unbreakable.
