Waiting on Wednesday #5: The Things You Kiss Goodbye

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we talk about books we can't wait to read! This week I picked...

The Things You Kiss Goodbye
Title: Things You Kiss Goodbye

Author: Leslie Connor
Expected Publication: June 24th 2014
Pages: 368
Series: No 

Bettina Vasilis can hardly believe it when basketball star Brady Cullen asks her out, and she just about faints when her strict father actually approves of him.

But when school starts up again, Brady changes. What happened to the sweet boy she fell in love with? Then she meets a smoldering guy in his twenties, and this “cowboy” is everything Brady is not—gentle, caring, and interested in getting to know the real Bettina.

Bettina knows that breaking up with Brady would mean giving up her freedom—and that it would be inappropriate for anything to happen between her and Cowboy. Still, she can’t help that she longs for the scent of his auto shop whenever she’s anywhere else.

When tragedy strikes, Bettina must tell her family the truth—and kiss goodbye the things she thought she knew about herself and the men in her life.

Leslie Connor has written a lyrical, heartbreaking, and ultimately hopeful story about family, romance, and the immense power of love.
Why am I excited?
I'm always up for a contemporary romance, I feel we can always use more romance! Plus the plot makes the characters seem complex and full of secrets. I'm excited to read what those secrets are
