Description: “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

18607160This week’s selection: Lies my girlfriend told me by Julie Ann Peters

Release date: June 10th 2014

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

When Alix’s charismatic girlfriend, Swanee, dies from sudden cardiac arrest, Alix is overcome with despair. As she searches Swanee’s room for mementos of their relationship, she finds Swanee’s cell phone, pinging with dozens of texts sent from a mysterious contact, L.T. The most recent text reads: “Please tell me what I did. Please, Swan. Te amo. I love you.”

Shocked and betrayed, Alix learns that Swanee has been leading a double life–secretly dating a girl named Liana the entire time she’s been with Alix. Alix texts Liana from Swanee’s phone, pretending to be Swanee in order to gather information before finally meeting face-to-face to break the news.

Brought together by Swanee’s lies, Alix and Liana become closer than they’d thought possible. But Alix is still hiding the truth from Liana. Alix knows what it feels like to be lied to–but will coming clean to Liana mean losing her, too?

Why did I choose this?

In honor of LGBT month I chose an LGBT themed book this week. Julie Ann Peters books have been on my TBR list for the longest time, and I finally started reading Keeping you a secret today. I’m loving it so far, and her upcoming book sounds like another emotional contemporary read which is right up my alley.
