Wait For Me would be consider Romantic Suspense and anyone who hasn’t figured it out by now, unless the suspense involves a Brother or an Argonaut I tend to pass. I really have to be a fan of a writer to step outside my comfort zone to take a chance on a genre I am not interested in. I was so happy to have taken a chance on this book. I actually stopped reading only long enough to tell Elisabeth how much I absolutely loved this book. I totally gushed, it was a little embarrassing but I couldn’t seem to control myself.

Everyone knows by now I don’t like to spill the beans and throw spoilers out so I will keep this short, sweet, and hopefully not to fan girly……

Kate Alexander is introduced to us while getting an CT scan and trying not to lose her mind in the machine. She is recovering for a car accident eighteen months prior that has stolen her memory and left her body ravaged so badly she died for 90 seconds. In the next few pages she learns via a news bulletin her husband has perished in a plane crash……

At this point I am sucked in to the story. I am holding the Ipad so close I’m squinting and so tightly my fingers are aching. My heart is pounding in my chest and when one of the kids ask me a question, I’m pretty sure I hissed at her. Not my finest moment, I know. From that moment on I cannot put the book down. I love twisty. I am and will forever be a angst addict. This book fed so many of my reading needs, I read it twice in three days. Each character made me love them. The secondary characters were just as good at capturing my attention as Kate and her counterpart Ryan. And speaking of Ryan…. Oh sweet Lord, the man is delicious, aggravating, sexy, and I-want-to-eat-him-with-a-spoon-while-telling-him-to-snap-out-of-it-! (ie. Cher in Moonstruck).

I honestly cannot say enough about this book. Just go out and buy it, download it, or run to the nearest library! Trust me you will not be disappointed. Actually after talking about it with all of you I find myself pulling up my Nook app and opening Wait For Me right now. I honestly don’t think three times in Kate and Ryan’s world will be enough, but it’ll take the edge off for now. To sum it up, Wait For Me more than met my expectations, it was downright delightfully angsty with a great big dose of scorching hot scenes between two characters who could not have been more made for each other. The unraveling mystery is compelling all on it’s own but the chemistry between Kate and Ryan will keep you truly captivated.
