Weekly Meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spines
Last week you may have seen my review for Amy Andrews’ Taming the Tycoon, well today I’ve chosen to feature Amy’s upcoming Rom-com as part of my Waiting On Wednesday book. I’ve actually read this book to tell the truth (I finished it yesterday) but have still chosen it for this weeks meme as its simply that good and I can’t wait for everyone else to be able to read it as well. If you are after a heartfelt, but funny romance story that leaves you feeling warm all the way down to your toes, then this is the perfect book for you 🙂
I absolutely love this cover as well!
Holding Out For A Hero by Amy Andrews
Published by: Momentum Publishing, Digital Imprint of Pan Macmillan
Expected release: 15th October 2013
When sensible schoolteacher Ella Lucas rides into her home town on a Harley and seduces the resident football hero, Jake Prince, she figures she can be forgiven and move on. After all, she’s just buried her mother.
Two years later, back in the city, their paths cross again but this time Jake is in the process of destroying her favourite dive bar. With her home facing a wrecker’s ball, her school being closed down and her 15-year-old brother hell bent on self-destruction, it’s the last straw. Throw in a dominatrix best friend who is dating a blue ribbon guy so straight he still lives at home with his mother, it’s no wonder the sanest person in Ella’s life is a dog.
With all this to contend with, the last thing Ella needs is Jake back in her life. But, as fate would have it, Jake is the only chance she has to save her school.
As the school football season heats up, old secrets threaten to surface and Ella takes on greedy developers, school boards and national tabloids. But can she save not just her home, her school and her brother, but also the reputation of the man she’s never been able to forget? And, more importantly, does she want to?
Holding Out for a Hero is a quirky, heartwarming tale of unlikely romance, friendship and family.
