Waiting On Wednesday (10)

Idea taken from Breaking The Spine

Nothing Like You by Lauren Strasnick.

“You think he’s yours but he’s not, I thought. You think he’s yours but really he’s mine.”

When Holly loses her virginity to Paul, a guy she barely knows, she assumes their encounter is a one-night stand. After all, Paul is too popular to even be speaking to Holly, and he happens to have a long-term girlfriend, Saskia. But ever since Holly’s mom died six months ago, Holly has been numb to the world, and she’s getting desperate to feel something, anything—so when Paul keeps pursuing her, Holly relents. Paul’s kisses are a welcome diversion, and it’s nice to feel like the kind of girl that a guy like Paul would choose.

But things aren’t so simple with Saskia around. Paul’s real girlfriend is willowy and perfect… and nothing like Holly. To make matters worse, she and Holly are becoming friends. Suddenly the consequences of Holly’s choices are all too real, and Holly stands to lose more than she ever realized she had.

I just discovered this one on Amazon a few minutes ago,  and am already waiting for it to come out. This one does sound really cliche but there's still something new to me. The situation is kind of tricky, so probably the main character has to go through a lot to make her choices. Also, who will get hurt when this triangle comes to an end? I'm so curious.

The date is Oct 20th, if you want to get yourself a copy.

It does sound a bit cliche, but definitely interesting as well...especially since the two girls are becoming friends.
