Waiting on Wednesday (6/20/12)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. It's just a quick look at the books we're all looking forward to. 

This week I am really  looking forward to Beautiful Things Never Last by Stephanie Campbell.  This is the sequel to Grounding Quinn (see review here), which is a really great book .  Beautiful Things Never Last is expected to release in December.  

Beautiful Things Never Last
Expected Publication December 2012

It’s been almost two years since Quinn's life was changed for good by that Christmas kiss from Ben.

Two years of working hard and getting her life together. No more crazy parents looking over her shoulder, no more self destructive behavior and no more secrets. Now, she and Ben share everything— including an amazing apartment, and a beautiful love.

In the two years since he met Quinn, Ben’s life has been full of change. After finally sticking up to his mom, he’s cut ties with his family and moved across the country with the only girl he’s ever wanted. But there’s something to be said for feeling needed, and since he and Quinn have been living together, he no longer feels that like he once did.

When Quinn is accepted into a summer culinary program in Italy, she is ecstatic. But while she is in a gorgeous country learning gnocchi and pesto, Ben is blowing off her calls and pulling back.

While Quinn is away, someone from Ben’s past walks back into his life, and he finally feels like he has a purpose again. Someone to take care of... Someone to save.

When Quinn returns from Italy, and the who's and why's of Ben's behavior are revealed, how does she have any choice but to walk away from the only guy she's ever loved?

And how can Ben ever learn let her go?

In the follow up to the 2011 release, GROUNDING QUINN, love and loss take on new meanings when roles are reversed, and the lengths that we go to, to protect our hearts are challenged in new ways.
