Waiting on Wednesday: Take Me There

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.

Take Me ThereI'm quite intrigued by my pick this week. Take Me There by Carolee Dean is set to be released on July 20th from Simon Pulse. As we all know I'm a sucker for a good realistic fiction, so the subject matter comes as no surprise, but the execution is what has piqued my interest.

Dylan has a bad-boy past and a criminal record. He knows that rich, beautiful Jess is way too good for him—but she has always been the one person who sees through his tough exterior and straight to his heart, and he has been hopelessly in love with her from the first time they met. He would change his life for a chance with her.

But trouble follows Dylan wherever he goes, and a deadly mistake soon forces him to hit the road and leave his dreams behind. He’s on the run and in search of answers—answers to questions he wishes he’d never asked.

So the story goes from a standard "Romeo & Juliet" complex to a "death-mystery" complex. I really like the sound of this book. I'm becoming especially fond of reading books from a guy's perspective. Considering I have never been in a guy's mind, it kind of gives me an insight into the different ways people can view events and situations. Hopefully this one won't disappoint! What are you waiting on this week?
