Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where you have a chance to let other know what you can’t wait to claim as your own.

Between the pissed off creatures that want demon-hunter Lily Marks dead and the fallen angel who just… wants her, Lily is about ready to trade in forever for a comfy job in a cubicle farm.
Mortal enemies, the fact that Lily and Julian are civil to one another is enough to have her thrown out of the Sanctuary. Even she can build a laundry list of why getting close to him is career suicide, but she can’t shake her not-so angelic stalker or how he brings her dangerously close to ecstasy.
As if Lily already didn’t have enough problems, the hits just keep coming. Blindsided when a traitor is discovered working from within the Sanctuary, Lily is shocked to find he's determined to get her kicked out. Her relationship with Julian provides the perfect fuel for suspicion, and she quickly finds herself being hunted by well, everyone. Her only hope is to discover the real traitor before she loses everything—and she'll need Julian's help. That is, if Julian is really there to help her … or destroy her.
Yeah, being a Nephilim isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be.
Why I need this: For those who don’t know, J. Lynn is J. Armentrout, it’s her pen name! And what else you might not know, is that this is gonna be for adults!! You know what that means: STEAM! And you all know how much I love some STEAM in my books. You also know how much I love JLA!! So the two together is Tater’s dream come true!!!! SERIOUSLY!!! And it’s about angels. For some reason, I all over angels right now. Maybe it’s because of how sexy Sweet Evil was!!! I'm feeling the whole sexy angel thing right now. So yea, I pretty much need this like I need new lungs right now (yes I'm still fighting the evil sickness!!! The things coming out of my lungs makes me believe in the supernatural so much more!! It’s just not natural!!!)
And a special treat, Jennifer shared a teaser and a smexy photo from Unchained on her blog!!!
She flicked a fry into her mouth and then froze. The feeling snaking down her spine was undeniable. He came so close, so fast, that she knew it was him.
“Damn it,” she muttered. Solitude and the actual ability to eat her food in peace couldn’t even be gained on a damn clock tower without interruption.
Ignoring him would be pointless endeavor. The sensation grew as Lily peered onto the observation deck below, and like every time before, the mere sight of him stole her ability to form an intelligent thought. Having a name Lily couldn’t even begin to pronounce or spell, she’d always known him as Julian.
And when he wasn’t around, she knew him as the pain in her ass.
“Hello, my Lily.”
She closed her eyes. Damn his voice to Hell and back. The sound, the deep timbre of the way he’d said her name, crawled all the way down to the pit of her stomach, where it started to smolder.
Julian’s lips formed a smile. A full bottom lip and a thinner one on top curved in a way that was downright sinful. Those lips whispered promised pleasures, and they also carried an intensely real threat.
She needed to remember that.
Her wry gaze flickered over his face, and she bit back a sigh. She knew he was bad. Oh, he was so bad that half the demons feared him. And the other half? They wanted to be him. That knowledge did nothing to dampen her appreciation of his beauty. Male or female—both were in awe of Julian.
After all, Julian had been an angel.
Tonight, he wore black trousers and a buttoned down white shirt. He must have grown bored with the buttons, though. Only half of them were done, and hard, pale flesh peeked through.
She found an ounce of common sense along with her voice. “What do you want?”
His smile widened. “Isn’t that a loaded question?”
She rolled her eyes, taking a bite of her burger. “I’m on lunch break. So if you expect me to chase you off, you’re mistaken.”
You can preorder it from one of the many amazing online vendors! The end of this year is going to be JLA/JL CRAZYNESS!!!
What are you waiting for?
