Waiting on Wednesday: The Ex by Abigail Barnette

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:

The Ex by Abigail Barnette 

Expected Release Date: November 22, 2014

Magazine editor-in-chief, bride-to-be, and soon-to-be-step-grandmother at twenty-six, Sophie Scaife is looking forward to married life with her fiancé and Dom, wickedly sadistic billionaire Neil Elwood. As they enter unexplored sensual territory, Neil leads Sophie to the very edge between pain and pleasure—and she discovers a surprising new side to her sexuality.

While Sophie balances her hectic work routine with her devotion to her unconventional family, Neil has to adjust to life as a retired mogul. With their big day drawing nearer, they have to forge through pre-wedding jitters, personal crises, and an unexpected houseguest to get to their kinky ever after.

But a decades old trauma still haunts Neil. When the private details draw public interest, Sophie learns that the scars of his past are greater than he let on—and he’ll need all of her love to heal them…

In what is a total departure for me, I’m featuring a self-published erotica novel by Jenny Trout (writing as Abigail Barnette).  I discovered Trout’s “The Boss” series earlier this year after stumbling across her blog looking for pieces about how irritating Megan Trainor’s “All About that Bass” was.  I stayed for her excellent 50 Shades recaps, and then downloaded one of her romances on a whim.  And guys: I was HOOKED.  I devoured the first three books in this series in about five days.  I can’t wait to see what happens next in the series.

These are smart, sexy erotica books, featuring characters who feel like actual humans.  Expect a post about the books later this week.

What are you waiting on this week?
