“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted gracefully by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m looking forward to read Enjoy the Dance (Dancing # 2) by Heidi Cullian.
release date: october 11th
Dance with your heart, and love will follow.
Kindergarten teacher Spenser Harris has carved a quiet, stable future out of his tumultuous past, but his world turns upside down the night a homeless teen appears on his doorstep—a boy whose story mirrors the one Spenser has worked so hard to overcome. The decision to shelter Duon is easy. What’s tricky is juggling the network of caregivers in Duon’s life, especially Tomás Jimenez.
Tomás wouldn’t have hesitated to take Duon in, but his plate is already full working three jobs to support his family. Though Spenser’s carefully constructed walls are clearly designed to keep the world at bay, Tomás pushes past Spenser’s defenses, determined to ensure the man is worthy of his charge. As the two of them grow closer, Tomás dares to dream of a life beyond his responsibilities, and Spenser begins to believe he might finally find a home of his own after all.
But Spenser and Tomás’s world is poised to crash around their ears. Duon’s grandmother isn’t sure she wants him to be raised by a gay man and challenges Spenser’s custody. Tomás’s undocumented parents could be deported at any time, and all the while the state of Minnesota votes on a constitutional amendment against marriage equality and the US Supreme Court debates whether or not Spenser and Tomás get a happily ever after. All they can do is hold tight to their love, hope for a better future…and remind each other to enjoy the dance.
Why do I wait for it?
I had the first novel a long time on my TBR list and have seen the cover so often. I was captured by the movements of both of the covers and when I noticed, the second book was up for an ARC I filled out the form – and got my ARC. ❤ Unfortunately I haven’t start this book yet but I’ll will – but first volume one will be read. 🙂 Both books are also purchased/pre-orded. 🙂 The author is new for me. I guess I’ll love this and I will also look up the german translation of other titles by Heidi Cullinan. Review of my german titles will be crossposted here.
What I think about the book? (review – edited later)
