Waiting on Wednesday #12: The Fill-In Boyfriend, Salt & Stone, and Seriously Wicked

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

The Author I Will Read No Matter What

The Fill-In Boyfriend by: Kasie West
Release Date: May 5, 2015
Goodreads Summary: When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she'd been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend— two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.

The problem is that days after prom, it's not the real Bradley she's thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn't even know. But tracking him down doesn't mean they're done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend's graduation party — three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.

The Sequel I Can't Wait To Get My Hands On

Goodreads Summary: What would you do to save someone you love?

In FIRE & FLOOD, Tella Holloway faced a dangerous trek through the jungle and across the desert, all to remain a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed for a chance at obtaining the Cure for her brother. She can't quit--she has to win the race, save Cody, and then fight to make sure the race stops before it can claim any more lives. In the next legs of the race, across the ocean and over mountains, Tella will face frostbite, sharks, avalanche, and twisted new rules in the race.

But what if the danger is deeper than that? How do you know who to trust when everyone's keeping secrets? What do you do when the person you'd relied on most suddenly isn't there for support? How do you weigh one life against another?

The race is coming to an end, and Tella is running out of time, resources, and strength. At the start of the race there were one hundred twenty-two Contenders. As Tella and her remaining friends start the final part of the race, just forty-one are left--and only one can win.

Because... That Cover

Seriously Wicked by: Tina Connolly
Release Date: May 5, 2015

Goodreads Summary: The only thing worse than being a witch is living with one.

Camellia’s adopted mother wants Cam to grow up to be just like her. Problem is, Mom’s a seriously wicked witch.

Cam’s used to stopping the witch’s crazy schemes for world domination. But when the witch summons a demon, he gets loose—and into Devon, the cute new boy at school.

Now Cam’s suddenly got bigger problems than passing Algebra. Her friends are getting zombiefied. Their dragon is tired of hiding in the RV garage. For being a shy boy-band boy, Devon is sure kissing a bunch of girls. And a phoenix hidden in the school is going to explode on the night of the Halloween Dance.

To stop the demon before he destroys Devon’s soul, Cam might have to try a spell of her own. But if she’s willing to work spells like the witch...will that mean she’s wicked too?
What are you waiting on?

    1. I agree, she really does! Salt & Stone can't come here fast enough. I need it!

  9. Oh Kasie West! I've still yet to read Pivot Point by her because I'm insane. I know she's pretty popular so I'd give The Fill-In Boyfriend a try just because of that. I also really like the summary with all the sweet romance I predict will be in it.
    Seriously Wicked sounds awesome. Any story about witches and/or magic you can count me in.
    Thanks for this list! I'll be adding two to my tbr list.

    1. You must try Pivot Point! I think you need to try at least on Kasie West novel and Pivot Point is a good place to start. :D I'm the same exact way with books about witches, I want to read them all.

  10. The Fill-In Boyfriend! :D I looooved Kasie West's other contemporaries, so this is a must. And I agree about the cover for Seriously Wicked!!! I'll read it only because of that cover--it's just so cute!! Great picks!
