I Can't Wait for... Where the Rhythm Takes You by Sarah Dass (Can't-Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday) #CWW #WOW #yalit #ownvoices @SarahDassAuthor @BalzerandBray

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you're continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.

I've been loving seeing more and more diverse books on the market. This one grabbed my interest with the cover, the second-chances trope, and that it's loosely based on Austen's Persuasion. Totally unrelated, this book cover and title reminds me of Gloria Estefan's Rhythm Is Gonna Get You. Anyone else? It's my pick this week...

Seventeen-year-old Reyna has spent most of her life at her family’s gorgeous seaside resort in Tobago, the Plumeria. But what once seemed like paradise is starting to feel more like purgatory. It’s been two years since Reyna’s mother passed away, two years since Aiden – her childhood best friend, first kiss, first love, first everything – left the island to pursue his music dreams. Reyna’s friends are all planning their futures and heading abroad. Even Daddy seems to want to move on, leaving her to try to keep the Plumeria running.

And that's when Aiden comes roaring back into her life – as a VIP guest at the resort.

Aiden is now one-third of DJ Bacchanal – the latest, hottest music group on the scene. While Reyna has stayed exactly where he left her, Aiden has returned to Tobago with his Grammy-nominated band and two gorgeous LA socialites. And he may (or may not be) dating one of them…

Inspired by Jane Austen's PersuasionWhere the Rhythm Takes You is a romantic, mesmerizing novel of first love and second chances.
