Waiting on Wednesday: Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios

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

This week I'm waiting for...


 Bad Romance by Heather Demetrios
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Publication Date: June 13th, 2017
Pages: 368

Summary (from Goodreads):

Grace wants out. Out of her house, where her stepfather wields fear like a weapon and her mother makes her scrub imaginary dirt off the floors. Out of her California town, too small to contain her big city dreams. Out of her life, and into the role of Parisian artist, New York director—anything but scared and alone.

Enter Gavin: charming, talented, adored. Controlling. Dangerous. When Grace and Gavin fall in love, Grace is sure it's too good to be true. She has no idea their relationship will become a prison she's unable to escape. 

Deeply affecting and unflinchingly honest, this is a story about spiraling into darkness—and emerging into the light again.

Tough-issue contemporary novels are pretty much the only contemporary stories that I usually enjoy reading. This one sounds like it's right up my alley! I'm excited about this book and the cover too! :)

What book are you looking forward to this week?

  2. This isn't a typical genre read for me, but I got this book recently so I'm curious. Plus, the cover is striking. Hopefully we both enjoy it :) Have a fabulous rest of the week, Cyra!

  4. I don't really love YA contemporary like many YA fans, but I will try anything Demetrios writes! I loved her Dark Caravan Cycle series, and while this is incredibly different, I'm sure it will be just as amazing as that series. I hope you enjoy it when you get the chance to read it, Cyra!

    Have a fantastic weekend. =)
