Waiting on Wednesday #3

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that 
spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week's 
Waiting On Wednesday pick is....

The last place Christopher Jacobs, aka X, thought he’d find himself was behind bars. Ten years later, the boy he used to be is long gone, and in his place is the tatted, roughened shell of a man with murder under his belt. Any emotion he once had was left under the gavel when he was given life in prison. That is until the new prison guard with the fiery red hair and emerald eyes joins the block. Putting your hands on a guard will get you the hole, but some things are worth their punishment, and something tells him Lyla will be worth more than he could bargain for.

Lyla Evans isn’t sure about her new job, but no matter what she can’t show weakness. After graduating with a degree in criminal justice, her bank account is almost empty. She has no other choice than to accept the first job that’s offered, even if it is guarding hardened prisoners. She’s warned ahead of time about a prisoner named X, but when she’s attacked, it’s the dangerous X that is her rescuer. Fraternizing with the prisoners is forbidden, but sometimes the most forbidden things are the sweetest. Determined to find out everything she can about X, she learns real quick that maybe the guilty are the most innocent of all.

So what are you waiting on?
