“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
This week’s spotlight is on It Felt Like A Kiss by Sarra Manning.
Release Date: January 30, 2014
Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:
Meet Ellie Cohen, one of the most perfect girls in London.
Ellie manages a swank Mayfair gallery, but it’s her life that’s a real work of art. Great job, really good hair, loyal friends, loving family. It’s only her succession of lame duck boyfriends that ruin the picture.
Oh, and the world-famous rock-star father she’s never met, who won’t even acknowledge her existence.
Then Ellie’s perfect life is smashed to pieces when her secret is sold to the highest bidder and her name, face (and pictures of her bottom) are splashed across the tabloids. Suddenly everyone thinks she’s a gold-digging, sex-crazy, famewhore.
Enter David Gold. Charming and handsome David Gold. On paper he’s even more perfect than Ellie, if only he wasn’t her father’s ruthlessly ambitious lawyer whose job is to manage the crisis – and her. He certainly doesn’t think that Ellie’s the innocent party and she doesn’t trust him at all. So why is it that every time they’re alone together, damage limitation is the last thing on their minds?
Why am I waiting?
I haven’t read any of Sarra Manning’s works yet but I’ve heard a lot of good things about her writing. I stumbled upon this title when it was featured in one of the many book blog memes I participate in (now I forgot which one, sorry). And that book blurb just made want to know more about the characters, about what will happen to the rest of the story. It’s high time I start on her books and I think this will be a great starting point.
What are you “waiting on” this Wednesday? I would love to hear all about them.
