Waiting on Wednesday #11: Everything I've Never Had & Tears of Tess

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week I am eagerly anticipating Everything I've Never Had by Lynetta Halat and Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters 



Title: Everything I've Never Had


Author: Lynetta Halat


Series: Stand Alone


Expected Publication Date: September 2, 2013


Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance


Description from Goodreads:

Celeste Hebert appears to have it all, but there are many things she's never had, been forbidden from having.

One night. One song. One kiss. The perfect trifecta to unleash the floodgates of a forbidden attraction between the widow and her husband’s bad boy cousin, Adrian.

Celeste endeavors to rebury the feelings that surface after this one night since her powerful family despises him. Kindred spirits, best of friends they attempt to douse their attraction; however, Adrian always seems to know exactly how to push her buttons and may prove too much to resist.

Having defied his family by making his way on his own terms, Adrian struggles to regain their acceptance. When he meets his cousin’s wife and wants her for his own, he feels he’s finally lived down to the title—black sheep. But, when his cousin dies unexpectedly, Adrian fights his attraction and swears to honor them both by helping her raise her boys.

Finding himself enveloped in a cocoon of love and acceptance, Adrian knows it’s more than just physical attraction. However, unforeseen events threaten to destroy those he now holds dear and his newfound peace.

Will the ties that bind them be their undoing?


I read Every Rose by Lynetta Halat and LOVED IT!! I loved her characters, story, and writing. Lynetta has become one of my new favorite authors this year, and I am eagerly awaiting the release of Everything I've Never Had :D!



Title: Tears of Tess


Author: Pepper Winters


Series: NA


Expected Publication Date: September 6, 2013


Genre: New Adult Dark Romance


Description from Goodreads:

A New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance, not suitable for people sensitive to grief, slavery, and nonconsensual sex. A story about finding love in the strangest of places, a will of iron that grows from necessity, and forgiveness that may not be enough.

“My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect.
Then it all changed.
I was sold.”

Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility.

For their two year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world.

But lusty paradise is shattered.

Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror.

Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter. But no matter her strength, it can’t save her from the horror of being sold.

Can Brax find Tess before she’s broken and ruined, or will Tess’s new owner change her life forever?


I first heard of Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters on goodreads. I was intrigued with "A New Adult Dark Contemporary Romance,..." and "Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter." If you've been following my blog from the very beginning, then you know that one of my favorite series is the dark duet series by C.J. Roberts. So I just have to read this new debut book :D!

Have you heard of these books before? 

What books are you eagerly waiting for this week? Leave a link to your post in the comments :D!
