Waiting on Wednesday: The Unwritten Rule

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott is set to be released on March 16, 2010.

Everyone knows the unwritten rule: You don't like your best friend's boyfriend.

Sarah has had a crush on Ryan for years. He's easy to talk to, supersmart, and totally gets her. Lately it even seems like he's paying extra attention to her. Everything would be perfect except for two things: Ryan is Brianna's boyfriend, and Brianna is Sarah's best friend.

Sarah forces herself to avoid Ryan and tries to convince herself not to like him. She feels so guilty for wanting him, and the last thing she wants is to hurt her best friend. But when she's thrown together with Ryan one night, something happens. It's wonderful...and awful.

Sarah is torn apart by guilt, but what she feels is nothing short of addiction, and she can't stop herself from wanting more...

From Goodreads

Okay, I am not really one for outright romance novels, but this one seems to be different. I have read two other books by Elizabeth Scott, but I highly doubt this one will be like either of those. This one will certainly have some bite to it and I am looking forward to that. Elizabeth doesn't seem to write catty girls and when I first read the description of this book, I feared that it could go in that direction. I no longer have that fear and am now anxiously awaiting the chance to jump right in and see what sort of choices these teens make. Whatever they will be, I know that they will be quite true to life because that's the kind of writing Elizabeth does. Can't wait! What are you impatiently waiting on this week?
