Review: Worth The Wait (McKinney/Walker #1) by Claudia Connor


The first in a spin off series of the New York Times Bestselling McKinney Brothers, WORTH THE WAIT takes readers on a journey through young love into adulthood. Nick Walker thought nothing could destroy what he had with Mia. He certainly never thought he would be the one to destroy it.

Now ten years later, Mia James is in Special Agent Nick Walker’s path once again and this time he’s determined to shed the weight of regret and finally claim the future that was always meant to be theirs.

It won’t be easy. Mia’s heart was shattered by Nick and now, just when she’d pieced it back together, it’s been broken again, bringing their past to the surface, including her own secret about that day everything went wrong.

My Review

“If she hadn’t come to him, he would have gone to her. It was as inevitable as the tide. Both of them tossed, not knowing where to go, but she was right in front of him. It was the only place he could go.”

“He needed her like he needed air; he always had. The quick, hot spark flared through him just the way he remembered. She was everything that every other woman wasn’t. She was Mia. She was his.”

“His heart broke right there. In that moment, he would have given her anything, done anything. Whatever it took, whatever he had to do to fix himself, he’d do it. Whatever she needed so that she would love him again.”

Wow! I don’t know how she does it. I honestly don’t. Once again, Claudia Connor has grabbed my heart and turned me into one emotional mess…And I mean that in the best way possible!

You see, I have been a fan of Claudia Connor’s stories for a while now. No one writes second chance romances, quite the way that she does. What I mean by that, is that you’re not just getting a love story. No, when you pick up one of her books, you are getting family. You are getting friends. You are getting a story that is filled with so much depth and so much heart. From the moment you pick up one of her books, you may as well just cancel all your plans for the day. And that’s exactly how I found myself today….

Worth The Wait is an exciting new spin off from The McKinney Brothers Series. Worth The Wait is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Nick and Mia. Nick and Mia’s story is going to suck you in and captivate you from the beginning. As I told you earlier, this is one of those stories that is going to demand to be read. It is so captivating. I promise, you are not going to want to put this book down.

Worth The Wait is a beautifully written second chance romance. Nick and Mia’s story starts off just as any good love story should. There is heartache. There is loss. There is hurt blinded by mistakes. There are soooo many lost years for our two beloved characters. Nick and Mia’s story is not an easy one. It is one that is filled with many ups and downs. But, in the end, their story is everything that you could possibly want in a second chance romance. Their story has taken my emotions on a crazy and thrilling roller-coaster ride. It has taught me to forgive and never give up. It has taught me that there is always hope and that good things do happen to good people. But, most importantly, it has taught me just how strong and real true love can be. That true love can weather any storm. And that real love is worth the fight and is worth the risk.

Gosh, I just absolutely loved this book and I hope that you will pick it up and fall in love with this story just as I have.
