WoW: Hold Me Like a Breath (Tiffany Schmidt)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Hold Me Like a Breath (Once Upon a Crime Family, #1)
Title: Hold Me Like a Breath
Author: Tiffany Schmidt
Release Date: May 19, 2015
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Penelope Landlow has grown up with the knowledge that almost anything can be bought or sold—including body parts. She’s the daughter of one of the three crime families that control the black market for organ transplants.

Penelope’s surrounded by all the suffocating privilege and protection her family can provide, but they can't protect her from the autoimmune disorder that causes her to bruise so easily.

And in her family's line of work no one can be safe forever.

All Penelope has ever wanted is freedom and independence. But when she’s caught in the crossfire as rival families scramble for prominence, she learns that her wishes come with casualties, that betrayal hurts worse than bruises, that love is a risk worth taking . . . and maybe she’s not as fragile as everyone thinks.

Why I'm Looking Forward To ItI love a good crime family story, and Penelope's disorder will be an interesting twist!

So what book are you waiting on?


  1. I love a good crime family book too! This one sounds like a winner!
    My WoW

  2. Ooooh, a story dealing with the black market for organ transplants sounds like it has potential to delve into some interesting morality/ethics issues (and have an exciting crime family battle at the same time!)
