Waiting On Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Here are a few books I’m waiting to get my hands on. 
 
Mistress No More
by Niobia Bryant
Released May 31, 2011

Jessa Bell shocked the hell out of her three best friends when she announced she was having an affair with one of their husbands—then refused to say which one. She has been reveling in watching her friends self-destruct while trying to figure out which dog of a husband has been getting some on the side.

But now, caught between an ex-lover who won't let her go, and a new lover who's more than happy to, Jessa's ready to confront the ladies, reveal the truth, and move on. Maybe her stunt will even send her latest married man back into her waiting arms for good. But she'll soon find out that revenge isn't just sweet—it can be deadly. Because nothing will ever be the same once Jessa Bell decides that she's a mistress no more. . .


No One In The World 
by E Lynn Harris
Releases June 6, 2011

Criminal defense attorney Cobi Aiden Winslow is the son of Cyrus Winslow, the owner of Winslow Products, a popular black hair care line. Cobi believes his father is ashamed of him and hates him because he’s gay—and then his parents are killed in a car accident before Cobi can resolve things with him. The will says that Cobi and his sister (“Sissy”) will share the inheritance…with a brother they didn’t even know they had: Cobi’s twin, Eric, has been raised in foster care his entire life. The will also stipulates that Cobi only gets his share of the fortune if he marries—a woman—by his thirty-fifth birthday and stays married for two years. When the siblings are reunited, Eric freaks out when he discovers Cobi’s gay because he was molested by an older man as a child, and Sissy fears he’ll blow Cobi’s cover. As they navigate through their trials and tribulations, getting blackmailed repeatedly along the way, someone’s going to have to stand up and take a fall. But which of the brothers will rise to the occasion?


Forgotten 
by Cat Patrick
Releases June 7, 2011

Each night at precisely 4:33 am, while sixteen-year-old London Lane is asleep, her memory of that day is erased. In the morning, all she can "remember" are events from her future. London is used to relying on reminder notes and a trusted friend to get through the day, but things get complicated when a new boy at school enters the picture. Luke Henry is not someone you'd easily forget, yet try as she might, London can't find him in her memories of things to come.

When London starts experiencing disturbing flashbacks, or flash-forwards, as the case may be, she realizes it's time to learn about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.


Hereafter 
by Tara Hudson
Releases June 7, 2011

Can there truly be love after death?

Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she's dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she's trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.

Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.

Jade said...

I haven't read anything by E. Lynn Harris in so long. I wonder if I'd still enjoy his books as much as I did when I was younger.
