Waiting on Wednesday: Kiss the Sky by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine,
spotlighting upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Raina's pick this week:

Kiss the Sky
by Krista and Becca Ritchie
Expected publication: January 2014
Genre: New Adult Romance

Twenty-three-year-old fashion designer, Rose Calloway, has everything figured out. Well, except her boyfriend. Pretentious, gorgeous, smart-as-hell—Connor Cobalt wants to rule the world and that means collecting as many contacts as he can. But for Rose, “people-pleasing” is another word for “fake” and tensions begin to build the longer their relationship lasts.

With the stress of her struggling fashion line, Rose finds a solution in another guy. The only problem—he’s everything she dislikes in men. But he’s her last chance to save the failing company. Now she must use Connor’s “people-pleasing” tactics to impress a guy that rattles her nerves. Rose has confidence in herself, but she also knows her boyfriend thrives on competition. And Connor hates being runner-up. If he doesn’t bottle his pride, the cost could be her future career.

They want it all: wealth, love and success.

But when two ambitious individuals fight to be the best, someone is bound to come in second. After all, only one can kiss the sky.

Why I'm waiting: I love everything the Ritchie sisters write. Always unique, real relationships, deep characters, and with such definitive writing and purpose. Not only are they on automatic-buy list, they also sit at the top of my favorite New Adult authors short stack. I'm really interested in where they take this story of competitive love, and I know these authors will tear it—and me—up.
