Series: Outerbanks Tennis Academy, Book #1
Nath: Interesting. Are sports academies going to be the new trend, after The Academy: Game On by Monica Seles? I have to wonder though if Ms Iacopelli got the sport feel better. I'm going to wait for your opinion, Ames, for this one :) By the way, I think the cover should have been more representative.
Ames: I like tennis movies (but not watching real tennis, go figure lol) so this one appeals to me on that level. But I also like sports romances AND I like when the heroine plays sports. Win win win. I will let you know what I think Nath. :P

Nath: The blurb sounds very interesting, but at the same time, very simple... and that scares me so much!! Because Ms Goodman has a tendency to surprise me with dark plots... so I'm going to wait for reviews for this one. However, True to the Law does intrigue me.
Ames: I like Ms. Goodman's writing. And there's something about school teachers and detectives back in the day that appeal to me. LOL

Series: Traveller, Book #1
Nath: Basically, I have the same situation with Ms MacAllister as with Ms Day. Never really got hooked by Ms MacAllister's writing, but this blurb really sounds interesting so Time Thief is definitively on my radar. I like the fact that it's paranormal romance, but with a different premises such as time manipulation.

Series: On Dublin Street, Book #2
Ames: On Dublin Street was one of my favorite contemporary reads from last year. I've re-read it a few times already. I wasn't going to read this one but Wena and Holly both told me that even though Jo isn't the most likeable character in the first book, she's definitely shown in a different light in this book. And just so you know, they were right. :P

As soon as he keeps his promise to her and shares the secrets to his tricks, she can break out on her own. But can she really make it? For years Holly has taken medication to stave off crazy hallucinations that she can levitate objects.

Determined to save himself and his old flame Holly, he kidnaps her and takes her straight to the source, a town high in the Rockies where their medicine is made. What they discover there leads them to suspect their powers are not imaginary after all...and neither is the intense attraction they feel for each other.
They make a pact to stick together as they return to Vegas to confront the people who kept them in the dark so long. But soon they’re pitting their powers against each other in a dangerous world where the nightlife is seductive, domination is addictive, the sex is beyond belief...and falling in love is murder.
Nath: Jeez, Ms Echols seems to have a lot of books out this year ^_^; I'm not really sure about this book. The word "showgirl" seems deceptive and the blurb just doesn't sound really New Adult. Perhaps I'll just stick to Ms Echols' YA books.
Ames: I think she's more of a magician assistant, not a typical Vegas showgirl. This one sounds different and I'm definitely intrigued.
Nath: That's why I said "showgirl" was deceptive. I thought Vegas dancer you know. I guess I'll wait for you to read it. And wow, that's really the official cover?!

But the four teens are more alike than they might think, and the timing of their meeting isn't a coincidence. It's a conspiracy.
Within the Icon's reach, Dol, Ro, Tima, and Lucas discover that their uncontrollable emotions -- which they've always thought to be their greatest weaknesses -- may actually be their greatest strengths.
Series: Icons #1
Ames: I read Beautiful Creatures by this author (collab with another writer) and it was good so I'm looking forward to reading this solo effort of hers. Plus it sounds interesting!
Nath: Not on my radar because I'm not a fan of dystopian YA, but you never know... Maybe Ames will love it so much I'll feel compelled to read it :)

Nath: I loved, loved, loved Forgotten by Ms Patrick. Since then, she's on my list of auto-buy authors for YA. By adding a sci-fi element to her stories, it just makes her books refreshing and different which is perfect for someone like me who doesn't care much about all the high school drama in contemporary YA. I'm curious to see how this one will unfold.

Nath: Loki's Wolves is a YA collaboration between Kelley Armstrong and Melissa Marr. I'm a huge fan of Ms Armstrong, so there's no question I'm picking up Loki's Wolves. I'm curious because this is different from what I've read of Kelley Armstrong so far :)
