Release Day Event for Wish For You, by Marquita Valentine

I recently read Not Over You (Holland Springs #5) by Marquita Valentine, and immediately I fell in love with the sweetness and realness of the characters. It was such a fun, romantic and different kind of story from what I have been reading lately. I’m looking forward to reading more by this author and I’m thrilled to be joining in the release day event for Wish for You!


Happy Birthday to Wish For You… and to Marquita Valentine! To celebrate the book release and her special day, Marquita is giving YOU the chance to win some of her favorite things!


Wish For You (Boys of the South #4)
Publication Date: 1/20/14
Hosted by: Wordsmith Publicity

There’s only one place in the world where I feel normal—the roller derby track. When I put on my skates and fasten my helmet, I’m powerful and in charge. I know exactly what to do and what to say. The rules are clear and everyone does exactly what they’re supposed to, penalties are enforced for those who don’t.
But in the real world, I’m far from powerful and in charge. I never know exactly what to do and say.

For years, I counted on one person to be exactly who he said he was—my best friend -Wyatt Tanaka.

Only he's changed. Being a Marine and serving in a war has made him different. Now I want to help him, but I also want to kiss him. And that’s not something best friends do.
Neither of us, it seems, is content being just friends anymore.

If we cross that line, change the rules of our relationship, it could be wonderful and everything I've ever wanted. But it might also mean I'll lose the one person I've come to rely on and I don't think my heart can take it.
