Waiting on Wednesday (14): Elusion by Claudia Gabel & Cheryl Klam + Beat the Heat Day 9

Hosted by Breaking the Spine 

Soon, Elusion® will change the world and life as we know it.

A new technology called Elusion is sweeping the country. An app, visor and wristband will virtually transport you to an exotic destination where adventure can be pursued without the complications—or consequences—of real life.

Regan is an Elusion insider. Or at least she used to be. Her father invented the program, and her best friend, Patrick, heir to the tech giant Orexis, is about to release it nationwide. But ever since her father’s unexpected death, Regan can’t bear to Escape, especially since waking up from the dream means crashing back to her grim reality.

Still, when there are rumors of trouble in Elusion—accusations that it’s addictive and dangerous— Regan is determined to defend it. But the critics of Elusion come from surprising sources, including Josh, the handsome skeptic with his own personal stakes. As Regan investigates the claims, she discovers a disturbing web of secrets. She will soon have to choose between love and loyalty…a decision that will affect the lives of millions.

Suspense, thrills, and romance fuel this near-future story about the seductive nature of a perfect virtual world, and how far one girl will go to uncover the truth behind the illusions.

Why I'm Waiting
Well, the cover is absolutely gorgeous.  It's what first made me want to read the synopsis.  And after I read the synopsis, I knew that this would be my kind of book.

Day 9 was a tad better.  It was nice to have a couple days to just relax but I am back and so ready to reach my goal of 10 books!  I managed to finish Something Strange and Deadly right before midnight, so yay for that.
