Waiting on Wednesday: Wild Cards by Simone Elkeles

Wild Cards (Wild Cards, #1)After getting kicked out of boarding school, bad boy Derek Fitzpatrick has no choice but to live with his ditzy stepmother while his military dad is deployed. Things quickly go from bad to worse when he finds out she plans to move them back to her childhood home in Illinois. Derek’s counting the days before he can be on his own, and the last thing he needs is to get involved with someone else’s family drama.

Ashtyn Parker knows one thing for certain--people you care about leave without a backward glance. A football scholarship would finally give her the chance to leave. So she pours everything into winning a state championship, until her boyfriend and star quarterback betrays them all by joining their rival team. Ashtyn needs a new game plan, but it requires trusting Derek—someone she barely knows, someone born to break the rules. Is she willing to put her heart on the line to try and win it all? (GoodReads).

 I mean, the story reminds me vaguely of the stories/characters in Friday Night Lights. And that is NOT a bad thing! So this Waiting on Wednesday is dedicated to Wild Cards, the first is a new series by Simone Elkeles. I have been wanting to read the Perfect Chemistry books, but this will do just fine as a start. This book came out Jan 2nd. And there is something great about instant gratification. Look, I waited patiently for like 30 seconds! Now I can go get this book.

What made your WoW this week? As always, cheers to Jill at Breaking the Spine for hosting WoW!
