On Wednesday, USA Today did an exclusive cover reveal for Jacquelyn Middleton’s new book. The author had been teasing fans for weeks about this and when the day finally came we were all squealing with delight. I loved “London Belongs to Me” and couldn’t wait to get my hands on “London Can You Wait” when it came out, so I was excited to be given the opportunity to be part of the second phase of sharing this novel… which was to take place yesterday.
As soon as I woke up in the morning, I rushed to my computer hoping for an email from the author with the details. But my computer wouldn’t turn on. It took me too long to realize I had grabbed my roommate’s dead computer rather than my own, and nothing was going to resuscitate that thing.
Once I located my own laptop, the internet wouldn’t connect. Our wifi can be patchy at times and yesterday was apparently a really bad day for connectivity. I tried multiple times, but had no luck.
Then, once I was able to get online this morning, my book blog wouldn’t let me log in. It kept saying my account didn’t exist and/or my password was wrong. I finally gave into doing a password reset, but it was being sent to an email I no longer use. Said email did not want to let me log in because I’m in a new country… And, yeah, you get the idea.
I may be a day behind, yet it is better late than never!
This contemporary romance tells of friends who become lovers, and of the unbreakable bond between mother and daughter. Here is “Until The Last Star Fades” by Jacquelyn Middleton.
COULD YOU BE THE ONE WHO CHANGES EVERYTHING?In her senior year at NYU, Riley Hope appears to be on top of the world. With a loving mother who makes Lorelai Gilmore look like a parenting slacker, ride-or-die friends, and a long-time boyfriend destined for the National Hockey League, she puts on a smile for the world. But behind it, she’s drowning. Racked with fears for the future, she battles to stay afloat amid life in the shadows of a heartbreaking illness.
And then, Ben Fagan comes crashing into her life. Twenty-three-years-old, British, and alone in the Big Apple after a disastrous pilot season in LA, the struggling actor is looking for an escape: booze, mischief, sex—minimum commitment, maximum fun—anything to avoid returning across the pond. As they form an unlikely bond, Riley keeps her reality from Ben so that he remains a happy refuge. But how long can she hold back the truth…and is Ben keeping his own secrets, too?
