Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week's pick is Kiss Crush Collide by Christina Meredith, coming December 27 from Greenwillow.

Summary: Leah has the life most high school girls would kill for—popularity, glowing grades, a rich, athletic boyfriend. So why does she feel like she can’t breathe? And why can’t she stop thinking about the boy from the country club? The one who isn’t her boyfriend, the one that her mother would never, ever approve of, the one that her perfect older sisters would never, ever look at twice. The one who is always looking back at her. Irresistible attraction, smoldering glances, the bad boy and the good girl—Kiss Crush Collide has everything that a steamy forbidden romance should, and then some. 

My Thoughts: I really love the rich/poor relationship scenario, and the bad boy/good girl one... so this book is totally right up my ally. Steamy and smoldering? Yes. Please. And while I suppose Leah could just be a spoiled rich brat, I am not getting that vibe from this summary, and honestly love it when someone that's privileged wants something different than what's expected. And then there's the cover, which makes me grin, and want this book even more.
