“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event originally hosted on Breaking The Spine.
This week I’m waiting on Paradise City by C J Duggan.
I loved Boys of Summer, which was her first book of her Summer Series. I own book 2, An Endless Summer but I haven’t got round to reading it yet. Possibly because it seems like a summery read and British summers are so short that it’s hard to fit everything in! This year perhaps.
There’s bound to be trouble in Paradise . . .
When her parents decide a change will be good for her, seventeen-year-old Lexie Atkinson never expected they’d send her all the way to Paradise City. Coming from a predictable life of homeschooling on a rural Australian property, she just knows that Paradise will be amazing. But when she’s thrust into a public school without a friendly face in sight, and forced to share a room with her insipid, hateful cousin Amanda, Lexie’s not so sure.
Hanging out with the self-proclaimed beach bums of the city, sneaking out, late-night parties and parking with boys are all things Lexie’s never experienced, but all that’s about to change. It’s new, terrifying . . . and exciting.
And when Lexie meets Luke Ballantine, the swoon-worthy, bad-boy leader of the group, the chemistry between them is electric. Trouble with a capital T, Luke is impulsive, charming and answers to no one, and he’s sexier than any guy Lexie has ever known. Lexie begins to wonder if Luke is going to be good for her . . . or very, very bad?
I’ve requested this on Netgalley in the hope that I can get my hands on it sooner but I’m not sure I’ll get it.
It’s another coming of age contemporary book and I hope it’s as good as her previous work, if not better!
