Waiting on Wednesday: Sophie Jordan double feature!

I missed last week's WoW due to a nasty case of the flu so today, I'm doubling up on one of my favorite authors who has two awesome books I can't wait to read!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.

Uninvited #2
by Sophie Jordan
Coming February 24, 2015
Harper Teen

What if the worst thing you ever did was unforgivable?

Davy’s world fell apart after she tested positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome. She was expelled from her school, dumped by her boyfriend, abandoned by friends, and shipped off to a camp that turns HTS carriers into soldiers. Davy may have escaped, but the damage has already been done. The unthinkable has happened. Now, even worse than having everyone else see her as a monster is the knowledge that they may have been right about her all along. Because Davy has killed.

On the run from government agents, Davy is rescued by Caden, the charismatic leader of an underground group of rebels. Despite Caden’s assurances that the Resistance is made up of carriers like her, Davy isn’t sure she can trust them. Then again, she doesn’t even know if she can trust herself . . . or her growing feelings for Caden. But if she doesn’t belong with Caden and his followers, is there anywhere she can call home?

Why I want it:
I loved how unique Sophie's concept is, and her execution is even better! As this was my first Sophie Jordan novel, I had no expectations going in. With Uneashed, I definitely have expectations, but I also know that Sophie can deliver! Plus, since Sophie's a Texas author, I've had the opportunity to really get to know her this year at a variety of different events. She's a great author and has also become a good friend.

Why I think you should want it:
I think the summary of Unleashed is misleading because it completely ignores Sean. Sean, who spent all of February starring in my dreams.... Oh, right, this is supposed to be why YOU should want to read Unleashed. Well, Sean. Sean's abs (which are supposed to be on prominent display for the first 30 or so pages of Unleashed). Also Davy who, despite being kinda spoiled at the beginning and kinda clueless sometimes and a piano prodigy and oh, yeah, might have a killing gene and all that, is extremely relatable. She's someone I sympathize AND empathize with, which is important at least to me. Combine the very well-rounded and dynamic characters with Sophie's flair for storytelling, a unique premise, and a solid world full of real details that keep everything grounded, and you've got a great book. Can't wait!


Ivy Chronicles #3
by Sophie Jordan
Coming November 18, 2014
William Morrow

A good girl goes fabulously bad in the final book in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s sexy New Adult romance series, in which three Ivy League suite-mates seek higher knowledge of just how far they can go.

Months after her boyfriend dumped her, Georgia can still hear the insults he hurled at her. Boring. Predictable. Tame. Tired of feeling bad, she’s ready to change her image, and go a little wild. What better way to prove her ex wrong than a hot night of sexual adventure at the secret campus kink club?

In the shadowy den of the kink club, she unexpectedly runs into Logan Mulvaney, her friend’s little brother. A player extraordinaire too hot for his own good, he may be younger, but the guy is light years ahead when it comes to sexual experience. Now he’s telling her to go home—“good girls” don’t belong here!

Georgia is tired of having others define her. She’s going to teach Logan a lesson he won’t forget—one white hot, mind-wrecking kiss . . . that leads to another . . . and another . . . and. . . . Realizing she’s way in over her head, Georgia runs.

Only Logan won’t let her go. Everywhere she goes he’s there, making her want every inch of him. Making her forget who she is. Who he is. And just how wrong they are for each other.

Why I want it:
I also want Wild for the same reasons I want Unleashed; Sophie's talented and a friend. However, I also want Wild because she drove me wild with Foreplay and Tease. I'm in my 20s, and while I love ya and will always read it, sometimes I also want characters who are dealing with adult things like I am. I may not be in college anymore, but I still strongly identify with the struggles that Pepper, Hunter, Reece, Emerson, Shaw, Georgia, and Logan are dealing with. I'm particularly excited about Wild because I'm still dealing with a bad previous break-up, and I think I'm really going to relate to Georgia's story.

Why I think you should want it:
I haven't read any of Sophie's straight-up romance novels, but I can tell she's good. Really good. Passion is at the heart of the Ivy Chronicles with a huge helping of sexual tension on the side. Sophie is great at demonstrating beautiful moments of both physical and emotional intimacy, and even the scenes that aren't, um, direct portrayals of smexy times are sexy, sweet, steamy and everything in between. When even Hunter's novella "Crash" (part of the Fifty First Times anthology) makes me crave more of this series, I know I'm hooked. The Ivy Chronicles is a series with something for everyone, and I really think Wild is going to be the best yet!

Will you be reading either Unleashed or Wild? Share your thoughts and your picks for today's WoW in the comments!
