Waiting on Wednesday (25)
"Waiting on Wednesday" is (supposed to be) a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. This meme spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

Synopsis from Goodreads
Sasha is desperate to find out who murdered her father. When getting the answer means pledging her soul to Eryx, she unlocks a secret that puts her in grave danger—Sasha is Anabo, a daughter of Eve, and Eryx’s biggest threat.
A son of Hell, immortal, and bound to Earth forever, Jax looks for redemption in the Mephisto Covenant—God’s promise he will find peace in the love of an Anabo. After a thousand years, he’s finally found the girl he’s been searching for: Sasha.
With the threat of Eryx looming, Jax has to keep Sasha safe and win her over. But can he? Will Sasha love him and give up her mortal life?---
Okay, I confess: I always hunt for books that have, somewhat, a new ring to them. I've been reading a lot of books that deal with angels, faeries, ghosts, witches, time travel, reincarnation, vampires, werewolves, etc. and from what I've gathered - they're all the same. At least for me. Sure there are variations but the same underlying premise is always there. Yada. Yada.
And I'm sure you notice them, too.
But, I also love these books despite my reservations. They tell good stories after all.
