Waiting on Wednesday (7): Romancing the Bookworm by Kate Evangelista

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

So I don't know why I actually stopped posting WoWs. I think it was the height of my busy senior life. But now that I posted last week, I kind of want to post weekly now! Maybe this is gonna be the weekly meme I'll be doing, since I long since abandoned weekly StS posts and opted for monthly. So without further ado, here's my WoW pick for this week!

Romancing the Bookworm
Title: Romancing the Bookworm
Author: Kate Evangelista
Publisher: Omnific Publishing
Date of Publication: July 9, 2013

Sometimes, even the best-laid plans can unravel.

It's spring break, and Tamara Winters would rather stay on campus and read romance novels than flaunt her size-fourteen body on a beach. But her best friend, Ronni, has other ideas. Against her wishes, Tamara is whisked away to picturesque Maverick Bay, where she's wrangled into waiting tables with Ronni at the Shore Shack for its busy week leading to Maverick's Surf Invitational. There she meets fellow schoolmate Xavier Solomon, the Invitational's organizer and campus womanizer by reputation. From the moment Tamara sees him emerging from the waves like a hero in of one of her romance novels, all she wants to do is run away from the feelings he inspires in her.

Little does she know Xavier has been watching her for weeks now. In fact, after failed attempts at asking her out on campus, he's concocted a crazy plan: fabricating romantic situations straight out of her favorite books. Xavier quickly realizes that if Tamara gets a whiff of his designs, he might as well spell CREEPER across his forehead. Yet as they grow closer, he's convinced it's a risk worth taking. What he hasn't planned on, of course, is his drug-addicted, alcoholic stepbrother, who decides to join the fun and put a wrench in Xavier’s scheme.

Spring break is proving hotter than Tamara expected. Will her romance novels be able to compete?

Why am I looking forward to this? It's Kate Evangelista first foray into the new adult category! And at contemporary too! I love Kate Evangelista, maybe because she's so kind and sweet and pretty and we're both Filipinos! I have yet to read Taste and Reaping Me Softly but I heard nothing but great things for both so looking forward to them! (After I plow through this insurmountable TBR pile.)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. What are you looking forward to this fine Wednesday?
