Waiting On Wednesday (3) - Contemporary heaven!

The One That I Want
The One That I Want by Jennifer Echols
Publication date: February 7th, 2012
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Find on: Goodreads, Amazon, Book Depository
Gemma can’t believe her luck when the star football player starts flirting with her. Max is totally swoon-worthy, and even gets her quirky sense of humor. So when he asks out her so-called best friend Addison, Gemma’s heartbroken. 

Then Addison pressures Gemma to join the date with one of Max’s friends. But the more time they all spend together, the harder Gemma falls for Max. She can’t help thinking that Max likes her back—it’s just too bad he’s already dating Addison. How can Gemma get the guy she wants without going after her best friend’s boyfriend?


You will have this on your wishlist if you've ever read a book by Jennifer Echols. She is a FANTASTIC contemporary YA author. We loved every single one of her books, but especially her simon pulse books! The cover is adorable and the synopsis makes us giddy with excitment!! 
What are you waiting on this wednesday? 


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we are excited about.
