"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week I am excited for Eyes on Me by Rachel Harris! I've read a couple of her previous books and they are all great in the romance department! Rachel Harris is a contemporary romance queen, and I am super excited to meet her at ApollyCon in March. One thing I've noticed is that a lot of YA books that include dance is that the dance is usually ballet/fancy dances. It's exciting to see salsa, specifically at a family-run dance studio, in a YA book. Considering the character Lily's "nerd" description, I have a feeling I will identify more with her. I'm super excited to watch these two wonderful characters fall in love.
Look up the word “nerd” and you’ll find Lily Bailey’s picture. She’s got one goal: first stop valedictorian, next stop Harvard. Until a stint in the hospital from too much stress lands her in the last place a klutz like her ever expected to be: salsa dance lessons.
Look up the word “popular” and you’ll find Stone Torres’s picture. His life seems perfect—star of the football team, small-town hero, lots of friends. But his family is struggling to make ends meet, so if pitching in at his mom's dance studio helps, he’ll do it.
When Lily’s dad offers Stone extra cash to volunteer as Lily’s permanent dance partner, he can’t refuse. But with each dip and turn, each moment her hand is in his, his side job starts to feel all too real. Lily shows Stone he's more than his impressive football stats, and he introduces her to a world outside of studying. But with the lines blurred, can their relationship survive the secret he's been hiding?
