Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by href="">Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, two books from my favorite series were released.Both of them are the third book in the series and I am really excited about them.
Third Grave Dead Ahead (Charley Davidson #3)
by Darynda Jones

Charley Davidson—grim reaper extraordinaire, private investigator . . . meh—is practicing her profession under the influence, caffeine and copious amounts of it, due to an extreme desire to induce insomnia. Every time she closes her eyes, Reyes Farrow, the part-human, part-supermodel son of Satan, is there. Only thing is, he’s a tad peeved. She did bind him for all eternity, so it’s hard blame him. But 13 days without a wink is bound to bring out the crazy in a girl. So, when a man hires her to find his wife, Charley accepts the job with one goal in mind: Put the man behind bars, and not the wet kind. She can sense the guilt waft off him and vows to find the woman’s body and prove he’s a murderer.

In the meantime, Reyes is back in prison and none too happy about it . . . so Charley thinks, until she is carjacked by the dark-haired rake, who swears the very man he went to prison for killing is not only alive, but close by. And he wants Charley to find him.

While a visit to her old friend Rocket sheds no light on Reyes’s situation, Charley finds out the man’s wife is still alive and time is running out. Finding her before she dies would be a miracle, but she has to try. Together with the help of a fashion-impaired receptionist named Cookie, Charley sets out to bring the bad guys to justice. She just hopes Reyes is not one of them. And that she’s not hallucinating from her self-induced bout with insomnia.

I love the Charley Davidson series and I am really looking forward towards reading this.Some of my fellow blogger friends have given this very high rating so I am sure I am going to love this too. When I read something by Darynda Jones I am sure that guaranteed a fun read.Reyes is just the icing on the cake.

Fifty Shades Freed (Fifty Shades #3)
by E.L. James

When unworldly student Ana Steele first encountered the driven, damaged young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and ultimately repelled by Christian’s singular sexual tastes, Ana demanded a deeper commitment; determined to keep her, Christian agreed.

Now, together, they have more – love, passion, intimacy, and a world of infinite possibilities. But Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy, and being together poses challenges neither of them ever anticipated. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own integrity, identity or independence; Christian must somehow overcome his compulsion to control, and lay to rest the horrors that blighted his past and haunt his present.

Just when it seems that together their love can conquer any obstacle, misfortune, malice and fate combine to make Ana’s worst nightmares come true. Alone and desperate, she must face down the poisoned legacy of Christian’s past.

Whoever has read the previous books and loved them, has been looking forward to the final book in this trilogy. Fifty Shades Freed will most likely end the torment through which Christian goes through each day.Hopefully he finally heals and has a HEA. Moreover, the love scenes would be terrific to read too, as it is erotica even if it a more romance than erotica.

It is a great book Petra.I will warn you though it is BDSM erotica and it throws some people off.Regardless it is a well written story.
