Waiting on Wednesday: The Fill-In Boyfriend
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine, focusing on unreleased books we are excited for!
This week I picked:
The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West
|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.
Expected publication: May 5th 2015 by HarperTeen
I’ve been dying to make this post ever since Kasie West announced she had another contemporary novel to be published next year but the cover of the book wasn’t released yet…until yesterday! And now I can’t stop looking at it because it’s simply beautiful! To see the author’s whole analysis on it, click here! (What she’s saying in the article is basically what I thought of the cover as well.) Oh, and did I mention that Kasie West is also one of my all-time favorite authors? On the Fence was one of my favorite reads in this summer although I liked her previous books slightly better.
What did you pick for this week? Let me know in the comments or send me the links to your own post!
