Waiting on Wednesday (#231): Busted by Gina Ciocca


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Busted by Gina Ciocca
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Publication Date: January 1, 2018

Summary (from Goodreads):

Marisa wasn’t planning to be a snoop for hire—until she accidentally caught her best friend’s boyfriend making out with another girl. Now her reputation for sniffing out cheaters has spread all over school, and Marisa finds herself the reluctant queen of busting two-timing boys.

But when ex-frenemy Kendall asks her to spy on her boyfriend, TJ, Marisa quickly discovers the girl TJ might be falling for is Marisa herself. And worse yet? The feelings are quickly becoming mutual. Now, she’s stuck spying on a “mystery girl” and the spoken-for guy who just might be the love of her life…



This sounds like it could be cute! Well, the fact that the protagonist is falling for someone else's boyfriend makes me sad (more so the fact that the boyfriend is falling for Marisa?), but I'm curious enough to want to see how things pan out!

  1. Ack! I don't think I'd be down for this kind of relationship drama. Maybe there's not as much as I suspect. Hope you love this, Alyssa! I look forward to your thoughts. :)

    1. The author is trying to convince me that it is not what I think, so I'm going for it!

  2. I can see why you're curious even with the cheating element there as a possibility.

  3. I read a book a while back with a similar premise, but I did not think it was well executed. Maybe this one will do it right.

  4. Yeah the cheating thing kind of throws me off a bit, but I can see the author fixing that in a roundabout way! Lol! At least I hope so! Hope you enjoy this one once you read it!

  6. I have a thing for sideways covers, don't ask me why! This sounds cute! Thanks for sharing, Alyssa:-)

  7. This kinda sounds like a more romantic Veronica Mars story, which I'm all over. The whole potential infidelity angle is a bummer, though.

  12. This does look good, but I agree with you on the romance angle :( That doesn't appeal to me either. But the cover is awesome, and I still think it's the kind of book I'll enjoy.
    Thanks for sharing, Alyssa, have a lovely rest of the week :)

  16. A risky choice by the author, considering how so many readers are iffy about infidelity/cheating storylines. But I am kinda curious to see how she'll deal with it!
