Waiting on Wednesday: Defending Taylor (Hundred Oaks) by Miranda Kenneally

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

Today, I am waiting on:  
Defending Taylor (Hundred Oaks) by Miranda Kenneally

From Goodreads:
Taylor’s always felt pressure to be perfect. That’s what happens when you are a senator’s daughter. So when she’s kicked out of private school for covering for her boyfriend’s not-so-legal behavior, she is devastated.

Things go from bad to worse as she joins what used to be her rival soccer team at Hundred Oaks High. The only person who seems to understand all that she’s going through is her older brother’s best friend, Ezra. But Ezra has secrets of his own. Will Taylor repeat past mistakes, or can she score a fresh start? 
I love love love this series and I can't wait for this book, in particular, since I played soccer for 15 years!  Defending Taylor is scheduled for release on July 1, 2016, and I can't wait!

What books are you waiting on this Wednesday??


  1. Nice pick! Not my kind of read but hope that you positively love it!

  2. This is a series I have been meaning to get to since everyone loves it. I think I need to start it this year. Great pick!!

  3. Great Pick!! I LOVED Jesse's Girl and already have a copy of Breathe, Annie, Breathe. I'm definitely adding this one to my TBR list. Thanks for sharing.

  6. EVA THIS LOOKS SO GOOD. OMG I WANT IT NOW. Teehee! <3 I hope you enjoy it! I'm going to add this to my TBR list even though my list is possibly falling over at this point but PFFT. BOOKS!

  7. I've only read one book by Kenneally (not realizing it was part of a series). I picked up Breathe, Annie, Breathe last year and it was so much more than I was expecting. I really loved it. Sounds like this one is right up your alley with the soccer aspect!

  13. I somehow never got back to this series after Catching Jordan- which I had loved, so it looks like I have some catching up to do. Thank you for putting this up on my radar, because I wasn't aware of it, and I do hope to get back to Kenneally's lovely stories. Great pick!

    Thank you for sharing and for stopping by my post earlier. Happy reading!

Megan created this feature and I owe this post to her brilliance.  Not only should you check out her blog, generally, but her This & That recommendations are utterly perfect! Megan created this feature to showcase books that either sound similar or have similar themes, and thus I am recommending that you read the "that book" because you are a a fan of the “this book.”

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
