Today I thought I join in Waiting on Wednesday. Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme that originally created by Jill at Breaking the Spine but has since been adapted with Can’t Wait Wednesday by Teresa at Wishful Endings.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature that showcases upcoming release that we are dying to get to!
Real Men Knit by Kwana Jackson
Published by: Berkley
Publication date: 19 May 2020
When their foster-turned-adoptive mother suddenly dies, four brothers struggle to keep open the doors of her beloved Harlem knitting shop, while dealing with life and love in Harlem.
Jesse Strong is known for two things: his devotion to his adoptive mom, Mama Joy, and his reputation for breaking hearts in Harlem. When Mama Joy unexpectedly passes away, he and his brothers have different plans on what to do with Strong Knits, their neighborhood knitting store: Jesse wants to keep the store open; his brothers want to shut it down.
Jesse makes an impassioned plea to Kerry Fuller, his childhood friend who has had a crush on him her entire life, to help him figure out how to run the business. Kerry agrees to help him reinvent the store and show him the knitty-gritty of the business, but the more time they spend together, the more the chemistry builds. Kerry, knowing Jesse’s history, doesn’t believe this relationship will exist longer than one can knit one, purl one. But Jesse is determined to prove to her that he can be the man for her—after all, real men knit.
Why I can’t wait to read this
Honestly I cannot wait to read this one! Ever since I heard about it late last year, I have wanted to get my hands on a copy. This book sounds right up my alley.
I love the idea of the local heartthrob running his mother’s knitting store after her death. Given the reason why Jesse is running the store, I imagine it’s going to hit me in the feels, hard.
Also I sense that this is going to be a friends to lovers romance which is a trope I adore but haven’t read too much about.
I’m interested to see this family dynamic. And since we have three other brother maybe we are series which would be amazing!
That’s it for me. Comment down below and let me know which books release date you cannot wait for.
Until next time, happy reading!
