Waiting on Wednesday: Under the Lights

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature, hosted at Breaking the Spine, where bloggers can share upcoming releases they're eagerly anticipating. 

This week's pick is:
Under the Lights by Dahlia Adler
Expected Publication Date: June 30th, 2015

Josh Chester loves being a Hollywood bad boy, coasting on his good looks, his parties, his parents' wealth, and the occasional modeling gig. But his laid-back lifestyle is about to change. To help out his best friend, Liam, he joins his hit teen TV show, Daylight Falls...opposite Vanessa Park, the one actor immune to his charms. (Not that he's trying to charm her, of course.) Meanwhile, his drama-queen mother blackmails him into a new family reality TV show, with Josh in the starring role. Now that he's in the spotlight—on everyone's terms but his own—Josh has to decide whether a life as a superstar is the one he really wants.

Vanessa Park has always been certain about her path as an actor, despite her parents' disapproval. But with all her relationships currently in upheaval, she's painfully uncertain about everything else. When she meets her new career handler, Brianna, Van is relieved to have found someone she can rely on, now that her BFF, Ally, is at college across the country. But as feelings unexpectedly evolve beyond friendship, Van's life reaches a whole new level of confusing. And she'll have to choose between the one thing she's always loved...and the person she never imagined she could. 

So I realize the release of this book is half a year away, but I'm going to talk about it now (and possibly forever) anyway because I am such a fan of Dahlia Adler. Her debut, Behind the Scenes, was one of my very favorite books of 2015 because her writing is excellent and the story was so feelsy, for lack of a better word. I'm so excited to see old Daylight Falls characters again in Under the Lights and meet new ones (Bri!). Especially looking forward to more Josh, who is the perfect jerk, and I love him already. Also, UtL is going to be heavy in LGBTQ awesomeness, so that's a plus. 

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
