Waiting on Wednesday: Sweet by Emmy Laybourne

January 21, 2015 Uncategorized 35

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.  This week I’ve chosen a book by the author of the Monument 14 series that I really enjoyed.  This one sounds like a totally opposite type  of story, well, no apocalypse, but still sounds really good!  Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

*People would kill to be thin.*

Solu’s luxurious celebrity-filled “Cruise to Lose” is billed as “the biggest cruise since the Titanic,” and if the new diet sweetener works as promised—dropping five percent of a person’s body weight in just days—it really could be the answer to the world’s obesity problem. But Laurel is starting to regret accepting her friend Viv’s invitation. She’s already completely embarrassed herself in front of celebrity host, Tom Forelli (otherwise known as the hottest guy ever!) and she’s too seasick to even try the sweetener. And that’s before Viv and all the other passengers start acting really strange.

*But will they die for it, too?*

Tom Forelli knows that he should be grateful for this job and the opportunity to shed his childhood “Baby Tom-Tom” image. His publicists have even set up a ‘romance’ with a sexy reality star. But as things on the ship start to get a bit wild, he finds himself drawn to a different girl. And when his celebrity hosting gig turns into an expose on the shocking side effects of Solu, it’s Laurel that he’s determined to save.

Emmy Laybourne, author of the Monument 14 trilogy, takes readers on a dream vacation that goes first comically, then tragically, then horrifyingly, wrong. 

Sounds really good to me!!  How about you?  Does this one sound good?  Do you have a book you’re eagerly awaiting this week?

      I thought it sounded really realistic as well, one reason I was intrigued, as well as the fact that I like the author's other books. Hope you get it on Netgalley as well! Thanks for visiting!

    This book seems to have a lot of potential. In our world of hatred towards everything and everyone different, perhaps it will make a change?
    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier! 🙂

    I've never heard of it but it sounds interesting! Not sure if it's my type of read but I'll see what others think first and maybe borrow from the library 🙂

    I just saw this one not too long ago and added it to my tbr. It sounds really intriguing and fairly thrilling with hopefully some humor and romance. I hope we both like it! Thanks for stopping by my WOW. 🙂
