Waiting on Wednesday (148)

is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine that 
showcases upcoming releases people are very much anticipating.

This book first caught my interest when I saw its (intriguing) title. Then its (gorgeous) cover. Then its (captivating) synopsis. Me? I'm (ridiculously, give-it-to-me-now) sold.

Welcome to Cyrene, a city where energy is currency and music is the lifeblood of its young citizens. Everyone lives on the grid, and the residents of the world’s largest playground are encouraged to pursue every physical and emotional pleasure imaginable.

Vee is the lead singer of the Sugar Skulls, an all-girl band that is Corporate’s newest pet project. Micah haunts the city like a ghost after an overdose of a deadly illegal street drug knocks him off the grid. When Micah and Vee forge an immediate, undeniable connection, their troubled worlds collide.

Trading concert stages for Cyrene’s rooftops and back alleys, they have to evade vicious thugs and Vee’s possessive manager as they unravel the mysteries connected to their dark pasts. And before the curtain falls, Micah and Vee will bring the city to its knees in their desperate bid for love, home, and a future together.

Do you ever see a book's title and immediately just go WANT?
