Waiting on Wednesday: Criminal by Terra Elan McVoy

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m eagerly awaiting:

Criminal by Terra Elan McVoy

Expected Release Date: May 7, 2013

Nikki’s life is far from perfect, but at least she has Dee. Her friends tell her that Dee is no good, but Nikki can’t imagine herself without him. He’s hot, he’s dangerous, he has her initials tattooed over his heart, and she loves him more than anything. There’s nothing Nikki wouldn’t do for Dee. Absolutely nothing.

So when Dee pulls Nikki into a crime—a crime that ends in murder—Nikki tells herself that it’s all for true love. Nothing can break them apart. Not the police. Not the arrest that lands Nikki in jail. Not even the investigators who want her to testify against him.

But what if Dee had motives that Nikki knew nothing about? Nikki’s love for Dee is supposed to be unconditional…but even true love has a limit. And Nikki just might have reached hers.

It’s no secret that I love Terra Elan McVoy’s books, so there’s no doubt that I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of her newest book.  This one looks a lot darker than her previous offerings, but I can’t wait to read it.  If it’s done well (and my guess it will be), it’ll be a nuanced look at coercion and love and what happens when the two collide.  I can’t wait to read this one this spring.

What are you waiting on this week?

  1. I haven’t read anything by this author yet so I guess I’m missing out. Criminal does sound dark and intense and I I’d like to give it a shot. Hope you love it when you get your hands on it!

    1. Thanks for the really nice comment. I’ll be sure to let you know what I think when I read it. I’m sure I’ll love it. You haven’t disappointed me yet!
