is a weekly event that was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy. There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t. I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

The first book, Blacklist, is still on my TBR. But the summary of this second book in the series The Rivals, sounds so intriguing, that I simply must read it. So let us hope that my request will be accepted by the publisher. Okay, I am not so happy with the cover the German edition shows because it looks for my taste way too cheesy. But the story behind it is what counts for me.

A dangerous love that could cost her anything …
Finally, after all the dramatic events of the past, Adair and Sterling get closer again – but the happiness in love is short-lived because a misleading SMS and Sterling´s iron secrecy about the reason for his wealth leads to a big argument. Adair can´t believe it: Sterling still doesn´t trust her! This man just drives you crazy! But that applies not only to his secrecy, but also to his body, which attracts her as if magically, and his touches, which trigger fireworks in her. As much as she tries to forget him, Sterling has that unique attraction for her that makes her forget all caution. But Sterling is hiding a dark secret that could also put Adair in great danger …(Personal translation by ©Vi at Inkvotary).

And what are you waiting for? Let me know your thoughts about this one or leave me the link to your WoW and I check it out.

Happy reading & waiting on



  1. This does sound intriguing. I hope both books in the series are great reads for you. :)

  2. Hope that you are approved for that request! I am not familiar with this series but happy to hear that you are looking forward to them :) One 2022 release I am looking forward to is Chloe Gong's next book (which I think is a spin-off of her These Violent Delights series).
