My life is a mess. Literally.
I’m a single dad, which means If I’m not cleaning up spilled milk or changing a diaper, I’m pulling gum from my daughter’s hair. I barely have enough time to eat—let alone sleep.
And women? Forget about it. That ship sailed two years ago along with my ex-wife. My brother says I need to get laid. I say, screw that. I’m content with my life, until pop star Nora Hayes walks through my best friend’s front door and flips my world upside down.
She’s beautiful, famous, and completely off limits.
My life is a headline waiting to happen. Literally.
It all started with fishnet stockings and ended with a baseball bat to my boyfriend’s Porsche, putting me on the front page of every newspaper and gossip magazine in the country.
My life is spiraling out of control and I’m ready to make some serious changes. What I’m not ready for is a hunky man to strut his jean clad tush into my life. Grayson Calhoun is as rugged as he is sweet. He’s also way in over his head with his kids, and I have an offer I’m hoping he can’t refuse.
What starts as an agreement, turns to a friendship, and quickly escalates to stolen kisses and heated nights spent wrapped in each other’s arms. What we have is temporary. I promise him that I won’t fall in love.
But I make that promise already knowing it’s a lie.
“Nora’s eyes are hot and commanding as she looks at me. I’ve never been stared at like this by a woman. It’s like she wants to devour me.”
“I’m the moth to her flame. Her body calls to me, and now that I’ve had a taste of her, I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to stop.”
“Nora Hayes owns me. She ruined me for every other woman in the world.”
When I first picked up this book, my initial thought was bring it! Wait For Me started off with one heck of a bang and left me totally intrigued. Wait For Me follows the story of Nora and Grayson. 23 year old Nora wants nothing more than to break away from her child star persona. She knows what she wants and is finally starting to stand up for herself. However, it’s her cheating boyfriend that gives her the wake up call that she needed. And when your life spirals out of control, there’s nothing better than returning home……Grayson’s life is a total mess. He never imagined he would find himself a single father to 3 children, but here he is. He’s just one fight or accident away from losing his mind. And when Nora comes home to visit with her brother, she just so happens to knock Grayson’s world upside down….
Wait For Me captivated me from the very first page. While Nora had some growing up to do, it’s not hard to understand why she acts the way that she does. I found her very easy to connect with and loved that she was paired up with Grayson. Grayson is the ultimate catch. He’s sweet, caring and totally devoted. He’s not perfect, but is trying to raise his kids the best that he can. And when fate throws Nora his way, he tries desperately to fight the feelings that he has for her. What starts off as an innocent friendship, quickly becomes stolen moments and a romance that is destined to last a lifetime.
Wait For Me checked off all the boxes I was looking for. From a sexy single dad to a former child star trying to make a name for herself. To a beautiful and unexpected friendship. To a romance that has a terrific slow burn that leaves you rooting for the characters to find their way to a happily ever after. This book had it all. Grayson and Nora were impossible to not fall in love with and I enjoyed every second of their journey. Wait For Me had just the right mix of drama, misunderstandings, romance and swoon-worthy moments. I really enjoyed spending my day getting swept up in Nora & Grayson’s story.
