#CuddlesByVal ~ 8/27/14

This is my version of Waiting on Wednesday but with more cuddles, books I can't wait to cuddle for various reasons.

What am we waiting on this week?  THIS!

Whatever Life Throws At You by Julie Cross

Seventeen-year-old Annie Lucas is too young to remember her dad’s glory days as a pitcher for the Yankees. So when her father is offered a coaching position with the Kansas City Royals, Annie is intrigued to see the baseball side of her dad. Of course, knowing he’ll be a mentor to hot young rookie pitcher, Jason Brody, certainly makes it more enticing.

After an awkward first meeting with "Brody" involving very little clothing and a much-too-personal locker room interview, Annie’s convinced she knows Brody’s type: arrogant, self-involved, bossy. As her dad grows closer to the pitching phenom, the friction between Brody and Annie increases. But when opening day arrives and it looks like both her dad and Brody may lose their dream jobs, Annie steps up and offers support. She and Brody call a truce that grows into friendship—and beyond. Falling for a rising star who’s quickly reaching a level that involves rabid female fans is not what Annie would call smart, except suddenly she’s getting hints that maybe this crush isn’t one-sided after all. Could someone like Brody actually fall for a girl like her?,%201

 Why am I waiting?  Um...that cover has kissing on the mount! Yeah, that's enough. 

When We MetWhen We Met by A.L. Jackson, Molly McAdams, Tiffany King, and Christina Lee

Today’s premiere New Adult authors combine their talents to tell four original stories from inside one house. 
When four girls decide to live off campus together as juniors at a college in Michigan, they expect it to be their best year yet. Little do they know, it’s a year that will change the rest of their lives.
BEHIND HER EYES by A.L. Jackson 
Unable to live down her ex-boyfriend’s deception, Misha is determined to avoid betrayal. When, the new guy next door, Darryn starts to get under her skin, her defenses start to crumble. But trusting Darryn seems impossible, especially if he’s not sure he can trust himself.
SAVING ME by Molly McAdams 
On the outside, Indy is always ready for a party—but inside she’s breaking. Kier makes a weekly routine of saving the girl next door from herself on Saturday nights… but when will she be ready to remember him on Sunday morning?
FOULING OUT by Tiffany King 
Working at a sports bar, Courtney has become a pro at sidestepping propositions from arrogant jocks—which makes her a more elusive catch for campus basketball star Dalton than he expected. But when he falls for the saucy waitress, Dalton will have to rethink his game plan to prove he’s not the jerk Courtney expects.
In order to ace her fashion internship, Chloe must team up with local college dropout and set builder, Blake—much to her chagrin. But after some "hands-on" experience, Chloe will have to ask herself if Blake factors into her carefully laid plans…

Why am I waiting? Well, I've already told you about my Molly McAdams addiction, yes? Take that addiction and multiply it by four. THAT IS THIS BOOK. I'm always up for a Molly McAdams book, I super love Tiffany King, Christina Lee is awesome, and A.L. Jackson is icing on it all. Plus, the premise of four separate stories that all interconnect throughout a year sounds so great. I seriously can't wait to get my hands on this beauty!!!

What do you think? What are you waiting on? Leave us a comment!


  1. Those both sound great and they are new to me! Gotta check them out!

  2. I love baseball-centered sports romance! This looks good.

    And, I have a copy of When We Met and will probably give it a try!
