Waiting on Wednesday (41)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where you can spotlight an upcoming release you're eagerly anticipating!

This week I'm waiting on:

Joyride by Anna Banks
Releases on: June 2nd, 2015 ADD IT TO GOODREADS!

From Goodreads: A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices
for midnight parking, and are soon in over their heads-- with the law and with each other-- in this sparkling standalone from NYT-bestselling author Anna Banks.

It's been years since Carly Vega's parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico.

Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber's dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn't acknowledge Amber's mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfill whatever his conservative father expects.

All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to NOT do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they've been living according to others. Carly and Arden's journey toward their true hearts-- and one another-- is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.

Why I'm Waiting:
1. DAT COVER! (So cute! I love star-gazing in the bed of a pick-up truck! I guess that's the Oklahoma girl in me!)
2. I LOVE Anna's first series. She has such a quirky, sarcastic voice that I loved reading. She never fails to make me literally Laugh Out Loud!
3. I need a new contemp couple to ship! I've been in the biggest reading slump because I just can't seem to ship anyone lately, so I'm hoping this book will do the trick! GIVE ME SOME SWOONS, JOYRIDE! :)

Let's discuss!
What do you think of Joyride?
Have you heard of it before? Itching to read it as much as I am?
What's your pick for Waiting on Wednesday this week?
