Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
This week's pick is Playing Hurt by Holly Schindler, coming March 8, 2011 from Flux.
Star basketball player Chelsea "Nitro" Keyes had a full ride to college—and everyone's admiration back home. Then she took a horrible fall during senior year. Now a metal plate holds her together and she feels like a stranger in her own family.
That summer, Chelsea's dad hires Clint, a nineteen-year-old ex-hockey player and "boot camp" trainer, to work with her at a northern Minnesota lake resort. As they grow close, Chelsea finds that Clint's haunted by his own tragedy. Will their romance end up hurting them all over again—or finally heal their heartbreak?
I honestly love dramatic romances- ones where there is romance and it's important, but there's another big thing going on too. The heartbreak and inherent pain and secrets in this one are just intriguing, and have so much potential over all. The cover is simple but cute, and I think this one is going to be fantastic overall!
