Waiting on Wednesday (23)



This is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating the release of! 


When You Open Your Eyes
By Celeste Conway
Release Date: March 20th
Summary: Tessa is in love with Lucien, the son of a European diplomat. He's French and sexy and artistic. With him, she realizes how naive and American she is, and just how alive she can feel.
But Tessa’s father forbids her to see Lucien. So they meet in secret, which makes their relationship feel all the more exciting.
The harder Tessa falls for Lucien, the more volatile he becomes. Suddenly it’s not just their relationship that’s breaking the rules—Lucien knows no boundaries. And Tessa must figure out how far she’ll go for Lucien…before there is no turning back.


So after reading this summary, I'm not really sure what to expect about this book. In the beginning, it seems like it's going to be a cute, foreign love story like Anna and the French Kiss, but near the end Lucien "knows no boundaries." This makes it seem like he's actually mean, or even abusive. Either way, it sounds like a great read! I'd like it more if it were a fun, light-hearted read, but if it ends up being deep and about serious issues, I know it'll be a good book!
