Waiting on Wednesday: Diplomatic Immunity by Brodi Ashton

June 8, 2016 Uncategorized 37

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 picked a new book by an author that I loved her first series, the Everneath series.  This one is a bit different, as it is more of a realistic story as opposed to the fantastical story in the other series.  Without any further ado, here is the blurb from Goodreads:

Aspiring reporter Piper Baird decides to write a scathing exposé on the overprivileged students at an elite Washington, DC, school, only for her life to change when she begins to fall for the story’s main subject, in this new realistic contemporary romance from Brodi Ashton, the author of the Everneath trilogy.

Raucous parties, privileged attitudes, underage drinking, and diplomatic immunity…it’s all part of student life on Embassy Row.

Piper Baird has always dreamed of becoming a journalist. So when she scores a scholarship to exclusive Chiswick Academy in Washington, DC, she knows it’s her big opportunity. Chiswick offers the country’s most competitive prize for teen journalists—the Bennington scholarship—and winning will ensure her acceptance to one of the best schools in the country.

Piper isn’t at Chiswick for two days before she witnesses the intense competition in the journalism program—and the extreme privilege of the young and wealthy elite who attend her school. And Piper knows access to these untouchable students just might give her the edge she’ll need to blow the lid off life at the school in a scathing and unforgettable exposé worthy of the Bennington.

The key to the whole story lies with Rafael Amador, the son of the Spanish ambassador—and the boy at the center of the most explosive secrets and scandals on Embassy Row. Rafael is big trouble—and when he drops into her bedroom window one night, asking for help, it’s Piper’s chance to get the full scoop. But as they spend time together, Piper discovers that despite his dark streak, Rafael is smart, kind, funny, and gorgeous—and she might have real feelings for him. How can she break the story of a lifetime if it could destroy the boy she just might love?

Sounds like it could be a good story, and with what I know of the author from her other books, I’m guessing the characters will totally stand out for me.  So, what book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

    I'm not sure what I think of this one. It's so different to her other stuff. :/ Oh well. I might try it. You have such a pretty blog, btw. 🙂 (I can't seem to log in via wordpress but I'm Kat from perksofabooknerd.com)

      It is pretty different, but it does sound good. Thanks! I recently changed the header, and can't decide if the orange still goes, but I love the orange, so haven't done much to change it yet. I'm on Blogger, so not sure how that works with wordpress unfortunately.
