Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

description:
Remy O’Malley heals people with touch—but every injury she cures becomes her own. Living in a household with an abusive stepfather, she has healed untold numbers of broken bones, burns,and bruises. And then one night her stepfather goes too far.

Being sent to live with her estranged father offers a clean start and she is eager to take it. Enter Asher Blackwell. Once a Protector of Healers, Asher sacrificed his senses to become immortal. Only by killing a Healer can a Protector recover their human senses. Falling in love is against the rules between these two enemies. Because Remy has the power to make Protectors human again, and when they find out, they’ll be coming for her—if Asher doesn’t kill her first.


My thoughts: Been excited for this one for such a long time!! I can't wait to hear more about the Healers vs. Protectors,...sounds like the makings of a great forbidden romance!

  5. I liked the premise up until the romance part with the guy who might want to kill her. If I read this I will probably get it from the library just in case I don't like the romance. Everything else about the story intrigues me though.

    Have you read Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder? It is somewhat similar from the healer angle and I really enjoyed it.
