WoW  - Left Drowning
Author: Jessica Park
Release Date: July 16th 2013
What does it take to rise from life’s depths, swim against the current, and breathe?
Weighted down by the loss of her parents, Blythe McGuire struggles to keep her head above water as she trudges through her last year at Matthews College. Then a chance meeting sends Blythe crashing into something she doesn’t expect—an undeniable attraction to a dark-haired senior named Chris Shepherd, whose past may be even more complicated than her own. As their relationship deepens, Chris pulls Blythe out of the stupor she’s been in since the night a fire took half her family. She begins to heal, and even, haltingly, to love this guy who helps her find new paths to pleasure and self-discovery. But as Blythe moves into calmer waters, she realizes Chris is the one still strangled by his family’s traumatic history. As dark currents threaten to pull him under, Blythe may be the only person who can keep him from drowning.

Why I am waiting:
After being introduced to the New Adult genre, I have an unhealthy obsession with it. This one looks pretty good and it seems that Jamie McGuire read it and wrote a blurb for it "The romance and intensity left me spinning, left me breathless, left me wanting more. (Jamie McGuire blurb found on B&N)
