So, I'm in Love with a New Book!!!

I picked up Virtuosity by Jessica Hernandez on Tuesday, just for the heck of it. Amazing cover, interesting sounding story, I was in the mood for a contemporary ... and I ended up falling in love with it, and it's two main characters. In fact, I liked it so much that I ended up reading it all in one sitting, while my own book languished on the computer ... but we're not talking about me, lol.

Anyway, here's the summary:

Now is not the time for Carmen to fall in love. And Jeremy is hands down the wrong guy for her to fall for. He is infuriating, arrogant, and the only person who can stand in the way of Carmen getting the one thing she wants most: to win the prestigious Guarneri competition. Carmen's whole life is violin, and until she met Jeremy, her whole focus was winning. But what if Jeremy isn't just hot...what if Jeremy is better?
Carmen knows that kissing Jeremy can't end well, but she just can't stay away. Nobody else understands her--and riles her up--like he does. Still, she can't rust him with her biggest secret: She is so desperate to win that she takes anti-anxiety drugs to perform, and what started as an easy fix has become a hungry addiction. Carmen is sick of not feeling anything on stage and even more sick of always doing what she's told, doing what's expected.
Sometimes being on top just means you have a long way to fall...

If you get a chance, I strongly suggest you pick up this novel.  So good.  How about you?  Anybody reading anything particularly exciting these days?


  1. Oh boy that sounds fun! I swear, my TBR pile will never lose those few inches it was looking to cut before the holidays. Haha!

  2. LOL, Bailey! I know. MY TBR pile is out of control. Of course, so is my TBW (to be written pile) ...
