WOW!! I am glad to have been a part of reading this book!! It is so full of emotion, learning to keep the faith that one day everything will be ok, to trust in yourself and follow what you believe! Having the strength to get through the trials that the main characters, Nat and Cy, was a great finish tying the entire story together! Fantastic job!! (free for honest review)

4.5 Stars

I knew after reading the first book in this series of standalones that I would enjoy this book. I had liked getting to know Natalie in The Beauty of Grace, and couldn't wait to find out her story. I was so not disappointed! Watching her evolve and grow as a character was quite an experience, and Cy just made her a much better person.

Great story- definitely worth the read!

Geez where do I even start with this book… Waiting on Faith by Nicole Richard is book 2 in the She’s Beautiful Series and it is just as tragic, and amazing as the first one.

Nicole Richard continues the She’s Beautiful series with Waiting on Faith. Wow, what an emotion ride.

She’s made some really tough decisions that she must now live with. Decisions that only one other person knows about. Now it’s time for her to grow, and give life another chance.

The second book in the She's Beautiful series by Nicole Richard. Natalie Brentwood escapes from her abusive boyfriend to her cousin, Spencer's home. A few years past and Natalie moves on to her Uncle and Aunt's home in Savannah, Georgia. There she meets some new friends, Grace and Addie, and Cy Davis.

I think I liked it a tad more than The Beauty of Grace but still didn't love it. The actions of the characters seemed too dramatic at times. The story is written in first person point of view. It s

Love the idea of this. Lots of drama. But the story jumped around and left me confused. Some of the secondary characters weren't really introduced and it left me feeling like I missed out.
Really liked the main characters in the book, but there was still something missing. And the big conflict, while I understand why it wasn't mentioned until later in the book, kept me wondering what happened and why it wasn't addressed earlier.

This is a very intense book. It starts with Natalie being beaten by her boyfriend Trent. The domestic violence is a underlying plot throughout. She runs to her cousin Spencer for help. Then after several months she moves across country to her Aunt and Uncle's house. There she meets Cy. I like there relationship. It is super steamy. This story will keep you reading.

Waiting For Faith by Nicole Richard.I give this book 5/5 stars. The theme of this book is two broken people fall for each other. This is the second book in She's Beautiful series, but can be read as a standalone.
Natalie is running from her past. She doesn't want to fall again for the wrong person. Her life is changed when they have good and bad times. The quote I chose for her is in the beginning of their relationship: “Cy, have I given you a reason to think that I don't want this? You don't kno

*** WARNING SPOILERS *** Waiting on Faith by Nicole Richard receives 4 stars from me. Waiting on Faith is a the second book in the She’s Beautiful series. This book focuses on Natalie who was featured in The Beauty of Grace the first book in the She's Beautiful series. This book gives details on Natalie and her past. Nicole goes backwards in the timeline to show Natalie's past, how she came to Savannah, and her perspective on some of the events from the first book. After fleeing her abusive drug ...more

[1.75 stars] book was overall okay, however i feel that after having being abused & terrorised for 3yrs, natalie seems a little too trusting towards cyrus when they met. i mean although she went through therapy after what she went through, and she vowed to not be that girl she used to be, trusting cyrus and falling in love with him so easily seems a little too far-fetch.

and also candace tried to "frame" cyrus by putting some woman's clothes in natalie's pile of clothes and what happen after

Beautiful story

First I must say the cover of this book...OMG...**bitting my fist right now** I don't know who the model is but HAWT is an understatement! He looked just like I imagined Cy to look, also. Great choice! Now on to the story. Cy's and Natalie "Blue's" story was touching, full of feeling and angst, and had the Elements of danger that makes a book intriguing and a joy to read. And "Waiting on Faith" had it in spades! Loved their story, stayed up way too late reading it but so worth the

What an amazing story! Nicole caught me with the first book and this one reeled me in just a bit more. Once again she goes beyond the simple writing standards. I could feel the pain and yearning that both Natalie and Cy felt. I wanted so badly for everything to work out. I sat on pins and needles waiting for the other shoe to drop. The build up was fantastic! You could feel it coming, just not when ans that whole scene blew me away as well. This book dealt with some hard issues but she handled t ...more

Complicated love story.

This story starts with brutal sadness for Natalie but she gets a second chance years later to have goodness in her life. She meets Cyrus who is complicated but she feels he is worth the effort. Their struggles are real and make it challenging to trust and forgive. When tragedy almost happens they realize they are meant to be together. Great story and will be reading more in this series.

I enjoyed this book up until Cy turned into a dickhead. I think Natalie deserved better. I get their past shaped them into what and who they were but come on...Cy needed serious help. I understand his anger and hurt but to do what he did without allowing Nat a chance an explain was selfish, cruel, and uncalled for. He never did anything to make it up to her. Too bad Spencer was her cousin cause he was someone who loved her unconditionally.

Loved it

This is the second one in this series and i can honestly say i loved this one more than the first one. Just something about Nat and Cy. Nat goes through so much to get where she is now. She is such a strong lovable woman. Cy is amazing from beginning to end. Parts of this storyline i wanted to throat punch him but he proved just how amazing he is. Just a great story line from beginning to end. Highly enjoyable.

Waiting on Faith by Nicole Richard is the second book in her series, She's Beautiful and it jumps right into the very difficult subject of domestic violence. It's a wake-up call, not just for the main character, Natalie Brentwood, but for the reader as well. This is my first time reading this author's work and it immediately made me sit up and question what was going on. Natalie is beaten by her bullying live-in boyfriend of several years and she is pregnant. We discover that these beatings have ...more

Waiting on Faith is the second book in the “She’s Beautiful Series” by Nicole Richard. I’ve recently had the opportunity to read the first book of this series, “The Beauty of Grace” and I completely fell in love with that book. So, I just knew that this second story was going to be amazing. FIVE stars Natalie and Cy.

While this is the second book in this series, it can also be read as a “stand alone” but you will enjoy the book even more if you read Book #1, since you will be reading about

Right away within the first line of the story we have a female POV, it is not your typical beginning. Your thrown into Natalie’s life of what a toxic relationship is, in one sentence. You feel her emotions come through the pages, fear, pain, humiliation, anger.. that fight or flight response triggers. What have, I the rea

Waiting on Faith (She’s Beautiful #2) by Nicole Richard is the second book in the She’ Beautiful Series and just as this book is just as good, if not better, then the first book. If you haven’t read the first book I would recommend doing so if only because it’s such a good book. Natalie Brentwood is a woman that is running from her past, but more importantly from a man. This man is one of the worse people to ever get in a relationship with. He’s the kind that is controlling, manipulative, and ab ...more

Waiting on faith by Nicole Richards is the second book in the She’s Beautiful Series. And another book that I just fell in love with. What I loved about this book was both main characters were hurt and running from pain of different kinds but when they were together, all that just melted away. I loved how these two found happiness in each other. Truly I could close my eyes and picture everything that these two characters brought out in each other.

Waiting on Faith is the second book in the "She's Beautiful Series", and after reading the first book it was very clear that Nicole Richard is a very talented writer.

This can completely be read as "standalone", but I highly recommend reading the first one before starting this one. We see some characters from the first book, and it's always nice to revisit them!
