WoW: Leap of Faith by Jamie Blair


A weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine, come play along by posting titles that you are looking forward to reading when they are released. 

This week I am featuring:

Leap of Faith
By Jaime Blair
ISBN: 97814422447134
Publication Date: September 3, 2013 






GoodReads Summary:

Can true love be built on lies? A teen on the run seeks relief and redemption in this gripping, romantic read.Leah Kurtz has finally found a place to call home, a town where she and baby Addy can live in peace, far from the drug-infested place she grew up. Chris is one of the best parts of her new life, the only person who’s ever made her feel safe. And now that she’s found him, there’s no way she can tell the truth:

Her real name is Faith, not Leah. She’s seventeen, not nineteen. And the baby isn’t hers—Faith kidnapped her.
Faith’s history catches up with her when a cop starts asking questions and Chris’s aunt spots her picture in the newspaper. She knows it’s time to run again, but if Faith leaves, she’ll lose Chris. If Chris is in love with a lie, though, did Faith ever really have him in the first place?



Why?

I am always on the lookout for another young adult author, especially a contemporary fiction author at that. I think this one sounds intriguing--some mystery mixed in with the romance. 

What title are you looking forward to reading this week?

  5. This does look interesting. I will have to add it to my list. Sadly it totally looks like a book that I would read a chapter of and then skip all the way to the back to find out what happens. Of course then I would read the whole thing. Thanks for visiting my WoW.

    1. It is interesting to blog hop to see all the books today. Definitely some that would be something I would pick up and others probably not. That definitely is one of the appealing parts of the WoWs. :) Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading!

  9. Hey, Steph!

    Thanks for visiting and commenting on my WOW! So glad you liked it enough to add it to your TBR!!

    As for this novel, it sure does sound interesting, as well as heartbreaking. I usually prefer to read paranormal romance, but occasionally I do read contemporaries.

    Thanks for contributing to my own TBR! Happy Reading to you, too!! :)

    1. Welcome Maria--thanks for coming by tonight. :) It does sound like it will have some heartbreaking moments but I am hoping they are offset by her strength. Happy Reading (again). :)

  10. I got goosebumps reading the synopsis. This sounds really good! Like you I'm always looking for new contemporary authors to read, and this one doesn't sound like it's your run of the mill boy meets girl. Excited for this one!
    Thanks for sharing, and popping by my blog earlier Stephaine.
