 I’m used to going for the easy things in life.
The easy A in school.
The easy lay in bed. The easy life my trust fund affords me.
Until I met Shelby.
Never in my life have I found retro T-shirts and ChapStick so damn sexy.
She’s exactly what I never knew I wanted.
And she’s *anything* but easy.
But suddenly, easy is overrated.
Only one damn problem… For Shelby, *hating me* is easy.
For the first time in my life, I have to work for something. And though
she may not be easy…she’ll be worth it.

Pinching my chin, he matched my stare, and for all of a second, we did nothing but look at each other. Hold each other. His eyes were savagely hot, and the way he searched my face and brushed his thumb over my swollen, wet bottom lip was achingly tender, like I was something to be cherished.
Gently, he freed my hair from my ponytail, brushing his fingers through the strands. His eyes explored my face, and he traced the muscles up and down my back. “You are so beautiful,” he murmured, more to himself than to me.
My breath expanded in my lungs, my muscles clenching with his declaration. For the first time with anyone, I honestly believed him when he said it. It wasn’t a way of getting in my pants, or some phrase he was repeating from a movie. But even more important? The way Tate looked at me, I felt beautiful.

Katana Collins bounced between a lot of different careers, including actor, photographer, television producer and finally after ten years of various jobs, she finally found her niche writing romance novels. With over ten books in a variety of romance genres, (paranormal, new adult, contemporary, and suspense to name a few), she's been keeping very busy these last few years.

She lives in Portland, Maine with her husband and brood of rescue animals. Most days, she can be found hunched over her laptop in a cafe, guzzling gallons of coffee, and wearing fabulous (albeit sometimes impractical) shoes.

Waiting On Wednesday: The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel

'Waiting On Wednesday' is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication 'can't wait to read' book chosen by me is:

The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel

Expected Release Date: 22nd September
Publisher: Penguin

(From Goodreads)

Ruby and Ethan were perfect for each other. Until the day they suddenly weren't.
Ten years later, Ruby's single, having spent the last decade focusing on her demanding career and hectic life in Manhattan. There's barely time for a trip to England for her little sister's wedding. And there's certainly not time to think about seeing Ethan there for the first time in years.
But as the family frantically prepare for the big day, Ruby can't help but wonder if she made the right choice all those years ago? Because there's nothing like a wedding for stirring up the past...

Why am I waiting for this book?
The second chance trope is one of my favourites, so the blurb immediately caught my attention. Also, I love the cover. As I mainly read romance novels, it's refreshing to find new books that catch my attention without a bare-chested, tattooed hot guy adorning the cover. I'm hoping the male protagonist is a 'normal' that doesn't have a body like a Greek god! Someone that's more relatable in real life! LOL!

What are you waiting for?
