Waiting on Wednesday (116)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm "waiting" on...

Enchanted by Alethea Kontis
It isn’t easy being the rather overlooked and unhappy youngest sibling to sisters named for the other six days of the week. Sunday’s only comfort is writing stories, although what she writes has a terrible tendency to come true.

When Sunday meets an enchanted frog who asks about her stories, the two become friends. Soon that friendship deepens into something magical. One night Sunday kisses her frog goodbye and leaves, not realizing that her love has transformed him back into Rumbold, the crown prince of Arilland—and a man Sunday’s family despises.

The prince returns to his castle, intent on making Sunday fall in love with him as the man he is, not the frog he was. But Sunday is not so easy to woo. How can she feel such a strange, strong attraction for this prince she barely knows? And what twisted secrets lie hidden in his past—and hers?
Okay, I have to admit that I added this one to my wishlist based on the cover alone, but after reading the synopsis it ended up being an especially good idea. The premise sounds unique and fresh so I can't wait to see how Alethea Kontis presents it!

The One That I Want by Jennifer Echols
Matchmaking gets mixed up in this all-original eBook addition to The Romantic Comedies series! Gemma and Addison are high school juniors, best friends, and majorettes in the marching band. Max and Carter are best friends too, and they’re starters for the football team. When Max and Carter start flirting with Gemma and Addison after football practice, the girls can’t believe their luck. But which guy wants which girl? Gemma is into Max, so she’s secretly crushed when he asks out Addison—but then Carter asks her out (making for a double date). Better to spend any time with Max than not at all, right? When it starts to seem that Max may have deeper feelings for her, Gemma must decide who is more important: her best friend or her crush?
I love Jennifer Echols' books, especially her romantic comedies, and because of that The One That I Want is very high on my wishlist. Plus the pretty cover and interesting premise don't hurt one bit either!
