 Because It Is My Blood (Birthright, #2)
 From Goodreads...

"Every time I think I’m out, they pull me back in.”- Michael Corleone, The Godfather

Since her release from Liberty Children's Facility, Anya Balanchine is determined to follow the straight and narrow. Unfortunately, her criminal record is making it hard for her to do that. No high school wants her with a gun possession charge on her rap sheet. Plus, all the people in her life have moved on: Natty has skipped two grades at Holy Trinity, Scarlet and Gable seem closer than ever, and even Win is in a new relationship. But when old friends return demanding that certain debts be paid, Anya is thrown right back into the criminal world that she had been determined to escape. It’s a journey that will take her across the ocean and straight into the heart of the birthplace of chocolate where her resolve--and her heart--will be tested as never before.

I CAN NOT WAIT to read this! "All These Things I've Done (Birthright #1)" was so good and I'm kinda freaking out about the "Win is in a new relationship" thing mentioned above.  I would totally "kiss the Corleone ring" to have a chance to read this early because September is so.very.far.away! *sighs* 

What's YOUR WOW?

PS - Did you notice the summary is in brown? That's because it reminds me of chocolate. *raids seekrit hiding spot in kitchen* :)
