Waiting on Wednesday | Fifteenth Edition

 Hello, readers and followers! Happy (almost) Wednesday. Welcome. It's another Wednesday, which means there's another fun meme making the blogging rounds. Today's feature is all about the books we're "Waiting On" with Can't Wait Wednesday. A meme Finding Wonderland occasionally takes part in. 

Organized by the lovely Tressa of Wishful Endings, here's another edition of Can't Wait Wednesday.

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. (Find out more here.)

Today, the spotlight is placed on an upcoming indie novel. The book is penned by author extraordinaire Tammy L. Gray. Though this book doesn't release until July (which is actually a pleasant surprise since I assumed in the aftermath of her March release, it'd be a while before there was a new novel by her), I simply had to spotlight it. The other reason I choose to feature this one (even several months prior to its release) is that I found out last night of this novel's existence. The excitement cannot be contained. 

Currently, I am reading book one in this duo, Until I Knew Myself, and while I'm thoroughly enjoying it, it's frustrating because I have to keep setting it aside in favor of INSPY or other reads. Ugh. Needless to say, I'm so ready to return to this emotional story about a group of friends.  

Author: Tammy L. Gray  | Publisher: Indie Published 
Genre: Fiction; Contemporary Fiction
Publication Date: July 2018

Nine years to win her. Three years to love her. And one decision that destroyed it all. 

April Duncan was raised with three clear truths: the family name is absolute, ambition and success rule over every emotion, and love always comes with strings attached. Image was everything in her carefully crafted world... until the mirror cracked. 

Sean Taylor was April's best friend, the one man who taught her it was okay to let her guard down and to rely on someone. She trusted him. She loved him. Which made his deception the darkest kind of cruelty. 

Now, nearly a year later, she’s ready to leave her failed engagement in the past and get back her life and her estranged family, even if it means dating a man solely for his connections. She’ll never again choose love over loyalty. 

Sean has spent his entire life breaking barriers, facing challenges, and never giving up. Until one impossible choice destroyed his future and left him no option but to flee from the woman who annihilated his heart. 

Now he’s back in Bentwood and determined to make her hear the truth and rebuild the trust he shattered. But April has become a mere shell of the woman who claimed his heart long ago. 

Winning her back is more than just seizing a victory, because if he fails… the girl he’s loved for a lifetime will disappear forever. 

The Truth Between Us is the second book in the Bentwood series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but it is recommended that you begin with book one to get the full experience among this tight group of family and friends.  - Goodreads

Comment down below with your thoughts (have you read Tammy's books? what did you feature today? what Indie books do you like? do you like to read contemporaries over the summer months?), Waiting on / Can't Wait Wednesday blog links or anything else bookish. I'd look forward to chatting all things bookish with you.

I'll be glad to visit your blogs, too - but it might take me a week to circle around. Still, I look forward to visiting, and... 

Thank you for visiting Finding Wonderland. 


  1. Nice pick! I do think sometimes I tend more towards contemporaries in the summer, especially if they're summer themed.

    1. Thanks, Greg. Contemporary is overall my favorite genre, so I read it year round, but I agree. There is something to enjoying the genre during the summer months - and many are set in the season, too. :)

  2. Friends to lovers are soooo lovely, except the break-up is also 10x more emotional1 Great pick, I feel like it's going to be a wonderful emotional read!

    1. This one does sound like a wonderful read, Verushka. I agree. And if I know anything judging from Tammy's prior novels, this one will be a beauty. :)

  3. Wow, this sounds amazing! April and Sean sound like a couple I would certainly root for. Great pick!

    1. Thanks, Jenea! I appreciate you stopping by - and like you, I hope to root for April and Sean. :)

  4. This sounds amazing! I've never heard of this series before but now that i have i'm definitely wanting to read them. They seem like they'd be a fast and swoony read too which is always great! Lovely pick! :)

    1. YAY! Hope you enjoy these if you do decide to read them. I'm *REALLY* enjoying the first book so far... though it's certainly an emotional read. :)

      Appreciate you visiting, Taylor.

  5. Ooooh, I love that tagline! I haven't heard of these books before but it has a lot of tropes I adore so I may need to check it out!

    1. Hope you enjoy if you do give this one a chance, Sara. :) I've liked all of the novels Tammy has written (aka those I've read).

  6. Sounds like a nice read. Totally non-book related but how does that girl on the cover walk in those SHOES!

    1. I hope it is, Barb - and given my enjoyment (so far) of book one, I think I'll like this one too. Right? Those shoes ARE crazy! I had an orange pair similar to this once and WOW, I couldn't manage them. ;)

  7. I grabbed the first book from your recommendation, but don't know when I'll get to it. I love discovering new Indie authors that are good. Thanks for sharing book two!

    1. I haven't finished book one yet, Tressa, but I hope to finish it (within this week). So far, it's good albeit emotional. Hope you enjoy the first book. :)
