Waiting on Wednesday | The Consequence of Revenge by Rachel Van Dyken + Zack by Sawyer Bennett

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights an upcoming book release that I'm looking forward to. This week I'm sharing with you the second book in the Consequence series, The Consequence of Revenge by Rachel Van Dyken. This book was released yesterday, June 9th, 2015.

After losing his best friend to another guy, the notoriously too-confident Max Emory suddenly feels lost. He may have devastatingly good looks, an abundance of charm, and a claim to one of the biggest hotel empires around, but he has no ambition anymore. So when his fed-up friends decide they’ve had enough of his moping, they sign him up to be the next bachelor on the reality series Love Island. And between his pride and his forged signature on an ironclad contract, Max just can’t say no.

Now he’s stranded in paradise with twenty-four women, one terrifying goat, and Becca, the breathtaking barista who already turned him down back home. The closer Max gets to Becca, the more determined he becomes to win her over. As she gets to know him better, things start heating up. But is Becca really after Max’s heart—or is she after the cash prize she could claim once the cameras stop rolling?


Why am I looking forward to The Consequence of Revenge?

1.) I recently finished the first book, so I'm excited to read this next installment.

2.) Max was hilarious in the first book and quickly became one of my favorite characters, so I can't wait to read his story.

3.) I have a feeling that this book is going to be just as funny, or more so, than the first book.

You can buy The Consequence of Revenge for $3.99 on Amazon!


I'm also sharing with you the third book in the Cold Fury Hockey series, Zack by Sawyer Bennett. This book was also released yesterday, June 9th, 2015.

Rising star Zack Grantham has been stuck in a downward spiral of grief ever since the car accident that left him a single dad and put his career on hold. Back on the road with the Carolina Cold Fury and still crippled by emotional baggage, he’s in need of some serious help with his son. But while the nerdy new nanny wins his son’s heart, Zack isn’t sure he’s ready for a woman’s touch—even after getting a glimpse of the killer curves she’s hiding under those baggy clothes.

Kate Francis usually keeps men like Zack at a distance. Though his athlete’s body is honed to perfection, he refuses to move on with his life—and besides, he’s her boss. Still, the sparks between them are undeniable, tempting Kate to turn their professional relationship into a personal one. But before she makes a power play for Zack’s wounded heart, Kate will have to open him up again and show him that love is worth the fight.


Why am I looking forward to Zack?

1.) It's the next book in the Cold Fury Hockey series. I like being able to read each guy's story.

2.) There's some emotional hurdles that need to be jumped.

3.) Having a single dad main character is a little different than usual.

4.) I like when a character has to fight for the love he/she wants, so I'm looking forward to seeing if Kate can cause Zack to open his heart and love again.

You can buy Zack for $3.79 on Amazon!
