Power. Money. Control. Love.

He has all but one.

When movie star, Evan Carlson, discovers his girlfriend’s picture with another man splashed on the cover of gossip magazines, he decides he’s had enough of his fishbowl life and attempts to outrun the media frenzy his relationships have become. Driving until the road stops, he ends up on the remote and quaint Perry Island, where a heartthrob can blend in like the locals and be a beach bum as long as he wants. All that changes when Evan meets Haven Owen, aspiring songwriter and the girl he just can’t get enough of. A summer romance turns into something much deeper and Evan gets tangled in his own web of lies to keep Haven in his life. But when his ex tracks him down, Evan learns there are some things you just can’t outrun.

Is the cost of love, losing all control?

Waiting on Wednesday #84 The Perilous Sea (The Elemental Trilogy #2) by Sherry Thomas


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine that showcases our most anticipated upcoming releases.


My pick for this week is a young adult, and the second book in The Elemental Trilogy. The Burning Sky was so fascinating and I am curious to see where everything goes with Iolanthe and Prince Titus goes and what happens. Can’t wait to read it.

After spending the summer away from each other, Titus and Iolanthe (still disguised as Archer Fairfax) are eager to return to Eton College to resume their training to fight the Bane. Although no longer bound to Titus by a blood oath, Iolanthe is more committed than ever to fulfilling her destiny—especially with the agents of Atlantis quickly closing in.

Soon after arriving at school, though, Titus makes a shocking discovery, one that makes him question everything he previously believed about their mission. Faced with this devastating realization, Iolanthe is forced to come to terms with her new role, while Titus must choose between following his mother's prophecies—and forging a divergent path to an unknowable future.

About Sherry Thomas


Sherry Thomas writes both historical romance and young adult fantasy.

On the romance side, she is one of the most acclaimed authors working in the genre today, her books regularly receiving starred reviews and best-of-the-year honors from trade publications. She is also a two-time winner of Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA® Award.

On the young adult fantasy side, there isn’t much to say yet, as her debut book is not scheduled for publication until September 2013.

Sherry writes in her second language. She learned English by reading lots of romance and science fiction–every word Isaac Asimov ever wrote, in fact. She is proud to say that her son is her biggest fanboy–for the YA fantasy, not the romances. At least, not yet…

“Sherry Thomas is the most powerfully original historical romance author writing today.”—Lisa Kleypas, New York Times bestselling author

“Thomas weaves a lush, intricate fantasy world around a gorgeous romance that kept me riveted until the very last page. What a breathtaking journey!” (Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Legend series )

A twisty story about love, loss, and lies, this contemporary oceanside adventure is tinged with a touch of dark magic as it follows seventeen-year-old Wendy Darling on a search for her missing surfer brothers. Wendy’s journey leads her to a mysterious hidden cove inhabited by a tribe of young renegade surfers, most of them runaways like her brothers. Wendy is instantly drawn to the cove’s charismatic leader, Pete, but her search also points her toward Pete's nemesis, the drug-dealing Jas. Enigmatic, dangerous, and handsome, Jas pulls Wendy in even as she's falling hard for Pete. A radical reinvention of a classic, Second Star is an irresistible summer romance about two young men who have yet to grow up--and the troubled beauty trapped between them.




My Thoughts 1



I didn’t read the blurb before I started this, and from the cover I thought it would be a contemporary set on a beach or something. Well, it was a contemporary and a retelling too. It centers around Wendy, whose brothers went missing while surfing and are presumed dead. She doesn’t want to give up hope that they are still out there somewhere. So, of course, she sets out to find them and she meets Pete, Belle and Jas during her time on the beach.
Wendy is an amazing sister, she doesn’t want to give up, even a little obsessive when it seems her family has when it came to her brothers. But having siblings, I would probably be the same way. Pete, is the first guy Wendy meets, and is introduced to his friends. He was pretty much what I would think Peter would be like in a modern time and Belle (Tink) was snobby and didn’t like Wendy from the start. Jas who is “Hook”, is a drug dealer, I just didn’t buy it. He seemed like a nice guy, maybe on the strange side but not what I think about when it comes to a drug dealer let alone being a villain like I remember Hook being. But I like him none the less. Wendy seem to like both Pete and Jas, so there is the dreaded love triangle, but luckily it doesn’t last long.
This is supposed to be a retelling of Peter Pan, which one fairy tale I haven’t read a retelling of, so I was excited when I started this. It has some of the similarities, not as many as I was hoping and looking for. The setting of the Kensington, the beach cove was our “Neverland”, and having it described with the sand and the waves, it made me miss the beaches in Florida. The surfing aspect was a neat little twist to the story, and Wendy learns how to surf, and gets herself into some trouble too. These kids have set themselves up in old abandoned houses on the beach, and we meet some of the lost boys too. And of course there is the whole flying thing too but there is also some drug use among the some of the kids. It was at this point that I began to question some of the things that Wendy was experiencing, was it real for her or the drugs she had taken somehow effected her. And I began to lose interest somewhat. But I wanted to know if what Wendy thought about her brothers was true, and I am glad that I kept reading. Betrayals were revealed and realizations came to those who needed them, and the ending was a fairly satisfying one. I am curious if there will be another book though.
Second Star was fun read and a good one for the summer reads list.

Sometimes all a girl needs is a little fling…

Talie Ronson needs a vacation.

From life.

Since she caught her cheating, loser husband in bed with his assistant, her life has been on a steady spiral—right into hell. Her car’s a junker, her job sucks, and her perfect, gorgeous sister likes to brag about her wonderful life every time they “do” lunch.

In an effort to salvage what’s left of her life and her sanity, she takes the advice of her kooky best friend and takes off to Topsail Island. A week at the beach, alone, is exactly what she needs to recharge, regroup, and relax.

Only, her alone time is about to get derailed.

Gavin Palmer’s favorite activity is walking around in his boxers and eating junk food. He and his neighbors have an understanding. They stay out of his business and he stays out of theirs. He lives at the beach, not for vacation, but for isolation. He’s had enough of people to last him a lifetime.

Gavin’s isolation is interrupted when his normally quiet neighbor starts disturbing his peace. He stomps across the sand to give the guy a piece of his mind… only it isn’t a guy.

It’s Talie.

She’d maddening, nosy, and talks too much.

But she’s hot and her bedroom eyes have him thinking maybe he’s had enough solitude. Maybe a week of company is exactly what he needs.

Maybe what they both need is a no-strings-attached tryst.
