Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Is there a time-limit on forgiveness?
If there is, I haven’t reached it…
I still love you…
A letter never sent.
Heck, I never even finished it.
Taron Rhodes was my brother’s best friend.
He was sexy as sin.
But he was more than that…
He was ponytail-pulling, ice down your shirt teasing, throw you in the lake screaming…
Strong, tanned arms and blue-green eyes over a heart-stopping, naughty grin…
Did I mention his tight end?
I gave him my first real kiss, my heart, my everything.
I said I’d wait for him…
I’m still waiting, because Taron Rhodes is still the man of my dreams,
And I have a secret that has his blue-green eyes.
Noel LaGrange stole my heart when she was only eighteen —pushing me off a flatbed and calling me a city slicker.
Her brother Sawyer would kick my ass if he knew how many times we made out that summer, how close we got.
Everything changed when Sawyer and I joined the military.
We were honorably discharged, but I didn’t go to her.
Instead, I went back to the city… where no amount of money, no amount of pills can heal this wound.
Only her whiskey eyes and dark hair, her slim arms and her sweet scent, give me hope.
I broke her heart just as surely as I broke mine, but I’m going back to make it right.
If she’s still waiting…
(WAIT FOR ME is a STAND-ALONE small-town, second-chance romance with a guaranteed HEA. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)
So, although this is a standalone story, this is related to Boss of Me, which features one of Taron’s squad mates. I mention that purely as an aside, because it doesn’t need to be read to get enjoyment from this book.
Now, to the review. This is a book of two halves. The first part is the set up, and although sweetly romantic, it was a little slow in pacing. That changed when we got to present day – the pacing of the narrative sped up considerably, almost to the point (but not quite) of a rush to a conclusion.
The author has delivered well on a second chance romance trope, with an added twist.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
