Waiting on All Closed Off

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

All Closed Off (Rusk University, # 4)

By: Cora Carmack

Expected Publication: May 1st 2017

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary

( Goodreads )

Goodreads description--Stella Santos is fine.

Maybe something terrible happened to her that she can’t even remember. And maybe it drives her crazy when her friends treat her like she’s on the verge of breaking because of it. Maybe it feels even worse when they do what she asks and pretend that it never happened at all. And maybe she’s been getting harassing emails and messages for months from people who don’t even know her, but hate her all the same.

But none of that matters because she’s just fine.

For Ryan Blake, Stella was always that girl. Vibrant and hilarious and beautiful. He wanted her as his best friend. His more than friends. His everything and anything that she would give him. Which these days is a whole lot of nothing. She gets angry when he’s there. Angry when he’s not there. Angry when he tries to talk and when he doesn’t.

When Stella devises an unconventional art project for one of her classes all about exploring intimacy—between both friends and strangers—Ryan finds himself stepping in as guinea pig after one of her subjects bails. What was supposed to be an objective and artistic look at emotion and secrets and sex suddenly becomes much more personal. When he hits it off with another girl from the project, Stella will have to decide if she’s willing to do more than make art about intimacy. To keep him, she’ll have to open up and let herself be the one thing she swore she’d never be again.


I'm honestly not sure if this book will publish on May 1st like Cora Carmack's website and Goodreads says as it isn't listed on Amazon yet, but that's the most current information I can find. Either way, I'm ready to get my hands on this one! What are you waiting on this week? Let me know!

    Another Cora Carmack book! Cool! This is a good series. You can find my WOW here if you'd like to stop by.

  2. I've only read one book by Cora Carmack, but didn't really like it that much. I'm willing to give her another try! I hope you love this. :)

    Here is my WoW!

  3. I've only read the first one in this series, and it wasn't bad. But I don't know if I'll go back or not. I probably should. I did like the Losing It series.

  4. Thanks for stopping by and commenting Molly!

  5. Hmm...yeah, I've enjoyed several of her books, but there were a couple that I didn't like as much. Thanks for stopping by Genni!

  6. I liked books 1 and 2 if I remember correctly, but I didn't love book 3. But that's exactly the same way I felt with the Losing It series too! Thanks for stopping by and commenting Lisa!
