Waiting on Wednesday (14)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine to spotlight a blogger's eagerly anticipated new books.

For this Waiting on Wednesday, I picked Stepping on Roses, Vol. 9 by Rinko Ueda.

Release Date: February 5, 2013

Book Summary: (From Amazon) "Poor Sumi Kitamura… Her irresponsible older brother Eisuke keeps bringing home orphans for her to take care of even though they can barely afford their own basic needs! Just when Sumi's financial problems become dire, wealthy Soichiro Ashida enters her life with a bizarre proposition: he'll provide her with the money she so desperately needs if she agrees to marry him. But can Sumi fool high society into thinking she's a proper lady? Moreover, is it worth giving up everything for this sham of a marriage?

Sumi tries to get Soichiro’s company back for him, but she doesn’t realize that he’s about to embark on a life-changing opportunity. Meanwhile, Nozomu is hellbent on marrying Sumi regardless of any consequences. Can anything stop Nozomu at this point? Or will Sumi and Soichiro find a way to be together?"

My Thoughts: Will the suspense ever end? Will I ever know who Sumi ends up with (please, say it's Soichiro!)?!....I know this is melodrama, but I am completely wrapped up in it. It's like my manga equivalent of a soap opera. This series and Downton Abbey drive me nuts (in a good way). I honestly thought the last volume was the final volume, however, the drama continues in Volume 9.
