Heroine kind of blackmailed hero into forgiving his father because he deserved to be happy 😤🤣😤😖🤮🤢. I think she had to forgive the hero for something but she would only if he forgave the father. I have no words for the character of this woman. Would she forgive someone who cheated on her?
Without mentioning the hero’s mother put all this weight on hero’s shoulde ...more
Tjen the second half of the book, the plot thickening, the story get more angst and the character develop nicely. I can feel the chemistry between David and Vivi. Their attraction to each other gradually picking up. This book is more invested into emotional development and not lust/ sex. The only minor thing about this book is David. He acts upon his attraction tow ...more

Her and David have always had a close friendship but Vivi has always wanted more. David moves away after the death of his mother and practically cuts off all contact with his family and Vivi. They see each other again when Vivi accompanies Cat on a summer getaway to Cat's family's summer home. Vivi doesn't know that David will be there or that he'll be there...more
Other things I didn’t like:
-The inconsistencies (everything shows on the heroine’s face but she c ...more
I will say that I was very impressed by Miss Beck's ability to write such angsty goodness, you could just feel the want and genuine desire to be with one one from both characters. But, this one definitely lost p ...more
I loved absolutely everything about Vivi and David. Seriously, since the beginning I was completely enamored and shipped the hell out of it.
Worth the Wait is a dual POV, from David and Vivi, and it's definitely a second chance kind of romance. Now it doesn't exactly say it's a second chance but Vivi has basically pined for David since they first met. Throughout the book he constantly tells her they wouldn't be good couple because it would ruin their friendship and the groups dynami ...more
It took a little over half the book for them to do anything physical with each other.
It took al,oat the whole book to actually be together and when they were the book ended quickly.
I didn't like David's dad and that whole situation. If there is another book with Cat or Jackson I hope something goes wrong with the dads situation.
There really wasn't too much I liked about this book aside from the taboo best friends older brother storyline.

As much as I wanted David and Vivi together, there were some questionable behaviour traits that made me hesitate about them (Vivi's staunch insistence that the adultero ...more
I've read the first book by JA In the Cards, it was good but this book is a keeper. The book is written in third POV, but trust me you'll be living in the world of main characters as you read it. It is an emotional journey btw the heroine, Vivi love story and David. Love at first sight for Vivi in the kitchen of St. James's household as she met David that time the captain of lacrosse captain, as she sketches his face. For 13 years she love him unconditi ...more
They all meet up again at Block Island for a vacation and the action takes off. David is aloof since the death of their mother many years earlier and no one can understand why, especially Vivi. He has brought a new girlfriend along who is the polar opposite of Vivi. Unrequited love turns in ...more
As soon as I opened the pages I was once again sucked back into the story, which is so much more than just a romance. As a person with a complicated family, I totally understand the characters. Siblings in real life very rarely cut each other slack, and Cat and Jacks ...more
I will be honest, the writing was good-really good. The story however, was not. The sub plots were ridiculous. There was too much going on. Half of this book wasn't even necessary. The focus of the main characters, Vivi and David were shadowed by so much drama it wasn't even funny.
Vivi, an artistic, eccentric, girl that has been "adopted" by the St-James family, is quirky and lovable. Her mother and brother died in a car accident when she was 7, and it left he ...more
