Waiting on Wednesday: After Us (Before & After #2) by Amber Hart



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

This week's pre-publication 'can't-wait-to-read' selection is:

Title: After Us (Before & After #2)
Author: Amber Hart
Release Date: 30th December 2014
Publisher: K-Teen
Find on: Goodreads

Sometimes secrets kill. Maybe slowly, maybe painfully. Maybe all at once.

Melissa smiles. She flirts. She jokes. But she never shows her scars. Eight months after tragedy ripped her from her closest friend, Melissa is broken. Plagued by grief, rage, and the painful memory of a single forbidden kiss.

Javier has scars of his own. Life in the States was supposed to be a new beginning, but a boy obsessed by vengeance has no time for the American dream. To honor his familia, Javier joins the gang who set up his cousin, Diego. The entrance price is blood. Death is the only escape.

Two broken souls could make each other whole again—or be shattered forever.

Our time will come. And we'll be ready.


I read the first book, Before You and fell in love with Amber Hart's writing straight away. Not to mention the number of social issues she includes in her books! I can't wait to see what she'll bring up in After Us! 

P.S. That cover is breathtaking!
