"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
My selection for this week is:
How Beauty Saved the Beast by Jax Garren
Publication Date:February 11th 2013
Summary from Goodreads:
Jolie Benoit left her old life behind to become an agent of the Underlight. Training under Sergeant Wesley Haukon, she’s honing her combat skills, all the while coping with the intense sexual attraction she feels for Hauk. She keeps their friendship casual, but when his high school sweetheart transfers into their division, Jolie finds herself grappling with jealousy.
The Underlight gave Hauk a purpose, but he can’t escape his past completely. The physical and emotional scars from the fire that killed seven fellow Army Rangers will mark him forever. Jolie sends his protective instincts into overdrive, but he’s convinced he’ll never be worthy of her love.
Hauk is determined to keep Jolie from harm. But when the Order of Ananke ambushes them with a new weapon that neutralizes Hauk, making him vulnerable, it’s Jolie who must tap into her hidden strengths to rescue him—or risk losing him forever…
What I think:
I enjoyed so much the first book in this series, How Beauty Met the Beast, that is only natural that I'm dying to get my hands on the sequel! A good thing too that Carina Press has approved my request for this book, so I will get to it as soon as possible :) Jax Garren has created and incredibly intriguing world and a set of characters that one can't help but fall in love with. A real good series, believe me :)
