The fourth installment in Jennifer L. Armentrout's "Wait For You" series has arrived!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with these books, you seriously need to pick up them up...now!
As for the current release, here's a little bit about "Fall With Me":
Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice.
Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.
But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself.
Having been a devoted fan to the contemporary series, I was over the moon when I heard about the next release, even more when I found out that Goodreads was hosting a giveaway for the latest book. Now, I've never had any kind of luck with contests before...like, ever. I'm honestly about as lucky as a black cat sitting beneath an open ladder after spilling a gallon of salt.
Yep, it's that bad.
So imagine my shock and utter excitement when I find an e-mail in my inbox in February that says I've been selected as one of the winners for the giveaway.
After a healthy fan-girling fit which included screaming excitedly at my laptop (which drew some unwanted attention from the other customers in the café...sorry about that), I read the rest of the e-mail. Sent on February 19th, it said I should wait a few weeks (4-6) to receive the book in question. A month later, and I was itching to get my hands on it.
Uncertain as to how the package would arrive, I'd race outside eagerly after the mailman arrived and would check the front porch several times a day...
with no luck.
The more time that ticked away, the more restless I became. "Fall With Me" was set to be released on March 31st, and the date came and gone.
Still no book.
It had almost been six weeks, and the book was already out.
What if it never came?
What if it got lost in the mail?
What if an evil book troll was roaming the neighborhood stealing previous paperbacks from their rightful owners?!?!
Okay, perhaps not the last, but with my luck, it wouldn't shock me.
Then come April 1st, I find a package on my porch. Could it be? Really? After all, it is April Fools. Since I'd mentioned my bookish conundrum to both family and friends, this could easily be a cruel joke of theirs. They all know how much I love reading, so to imagine opening the package with the hopes of seeing my long-awaited treasure, only to discover a copy of my tenth grade Biology textbook wouldn't surprise me.
Bracing myself for whatever could be inside, I'm genuinely elated to find.....
And it's so pretty!!
Spending Easter weekend with this gorgeous read is pretty much the cherry on top of a delicious Sundae. Greatest thanks goes out to Jennifer and Goodreads for this amazing gift!
