Wild Cards (Wild Cards #1) by Simone Elkeles
Publication Date: October 1st 2013
After getting kicked out of boarding school, bad boy Derek Fitzpatrick has no choice but to live with his ditzy stepmother while his military dad is deployed. Things quickly go from bad to worse when he finds out she plans to move them back to her childhood home in Illinois. Derek’s counting the days before he can be on his own, and the last thing he needs is to get involved with someone else’s family drama.
Ashtyn Parker knows one thing for certain–people you care about leave without a backward glance. A football scholarship would finally give her the chance to leave. So she pours everything into winning a state championship, until her boyfriend and star quarterback betrays them all by joining their rival team. Ashtyn needs a new game plan, but it requires trusting Derek—someone she barely knows, someone born to break the rules. Is she willing to put her heart on the line to try and win it all?
I’m a huge, huge fan of Simone Elkeles, and I’m practically willing to read anything she writes. So once I found out she was writing a new book? Absolutely have to read it once it comes out. But I am SO happy I got an advanced review copy from Netgalley! I’m about to start it soon, and I’m pretty sure I’ll end up loving it.
