Mar 24, 2018 rated it it was amazing  ·  (Review from the author)
What a trip this book has been! I never would have thought that sneaking into a Tire shop waiting room to write would generate so much buzz! But it was that engagement and that excitement that inspired me to actually write this story. And considering I wrote it all in 13 days and released it 3 weeks later, I think it's safe to say, it was meant to be! I've had a blast talking to the media about my unusual writing experience. It just goes to show that sometimes it's fun to celebrate the little th ...more

Oh, how do I start this review. There is just so much to relate to...The premise is an author who is blocked and ends up finding her writing groove in the Customer Care Center at the local Tire Depot. It becomes a vital necessity for her to be there everyday to use their comfy chairs and drink the gourmet coffee while she works on her final book of her series.

I can’t stop talking about you these days because of Wait With Me but also because through all I see on social medias, I wish we could be friends.

3.5 Stars!

I read an article on Facebook awhile back where this author took her car in for service and found that she was inspired while writing in their customer service waiting room. Not wanting to waste this new inspiration, she borrowed cars from family and friends that needed servicing so that she could keep writing in their waiting room. Essentially, that's what Wait With Me is about. I love that she took a real life situation and turned into on of her books.

I enjoyed this unique storyline

“Maybe it’s Miles Hudson magic.”

I thought it was intriguing that the author actually got her idea for this book by being in a car repair shop. Where are these hot mechanics? No where that I've seen that's for sure but we can always fantasize right?

Well, let me tell you that Miles is definitely fantasizable! He's tall, he's built, he's very good with his hands and he rides a motorcycle. What else is there to love? Oh, and he's a reader..and I'm not kidding!

I was so happy to find this on my kindle on Monday. I didn't realize that I was approved for an ARC.

Wait With Me is the first non-Harris brothers book of Amy Daws's that I've read and it's clear that she writes a blue collar romance just as magically as she writes a British sports romance. These characters and their friends with benefits romance was fun to read and fall into.

As much as I loved this story and Miles, I was actually cheering hard for Dean. Don't hate me! I think Miles is amazing and I love him and Kate together, but I want so badly for Dean to get a happy ending. Hopefully Amy w

I loved reading Wait with Me when it was released on kindle, so of course I was thrilled to get an audio copy to have a listen to the story this time around instead. Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton have done a wonderful job bringing to life Miles and Kate.

I enjoyed experiencing this story again, and these two narrators were perfect for this story. They really portrayed the characters and emotions so

I would have stayed longer if I could survive on coffee and cookies all day. But curses, I need some protein or I might die.

I’m livid over the nerve of Tire Depot! What kind of respectable business would charge a person excess consumption of complimentary coffee? … I snatch the sheet out of her hands and am mortified at the list. Jesus, I do look like a pig when you list it all out like that.

My very first read by the amazing Amy Daws and she DID NOT disappoint! WAIT WITH ME is the unexpected love story between a romance novelist dealing with major writer’s block and a mechanic who wants absolute ZERO drama in his life. Something tells me that our heroine’s brand of drama is not what he was talking about. Kate and Miles are an ADORABLE couple. Their connection is instant, their chemistry is scorching hot

A couple weeks ago I read a buzzfeed article about this author and when I found out she wrote a book inspired by the story in that article, I knew I had to read it!

First, let me just say that the article talked about how Amy used the customer wait area at a tire shop to do her writing. She even went as far as to bring other peoples vehicles in for service just so she could take advantage of the seating area. I loved everything about that article! It was funny and so human and feel good! The emp

Oh. My. God. I loved Wait With Me when I read it and now I love it even more.

Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton did an amazing job by bringing to life Kate (AKA Mercedes) and Miles. I loved how they translated the sexy moments, as well as the funny and the drama around the lies and secrets of Kate's. I gotta admit, this time it wasn't as stressful as the first time I read it because I knew what was going to be the outcome of their story, but I felt the little angst a

“You know that point in a romance novel where the girl bares her heart to the guy, and he tells her that he’s loved her since the first moment he laid eyes on her? That’s not how my story with Miles went.”

Audio-book: Narrators – Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton

Oh my gawd!!! I absolutely LOVED this audio! Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton do a freaking amazing job of bringing Kate and Miles to life! Each successfully narrated both male and female voices during their narrations and they were spot on! No cringing here just smooth perfection as the narration flows from one point of view to the next, one character to the next. This is vocal acting, not just reading the lines and I loved every moment of it!

Well everyone..... Amy just earned herself another reader for all her words. This is the first book I’ve read by her and I am completely smitten! I loved this story so hard! Different and completely swoon worthy!

Kate is freakin sassy! I love love love her. She’s so funny and down to earth. I really enjoyed reading her POV. It’l constantly had me laughing and smiling.

Miles. He’s perfection. Straight up alpha male. Hot. Sexy. Dirty
Wait With Me was full of so much smutty goodness! I absolutely loved Kate and Miles together! The smut, chemistry, and everything else was just amazing in my eyes! I loved them.

Kate, pen name Mercedes, is basically amazing in my eyes. She's a spitfire and doesn't take shit from anyone. She also basically has my dream job. She's living the dream guys. SHE WRITES. She's an author of all the smuttiness. She's the Smut Queen. Queen of the Smut. I would totally read her books if she was real. However

This is my first Amy Daws book. It’s a really cute and funny book. I like the writing style as it’s very dialogue based and fast to read. I would have easily given this five star had the plot not be a secret. I’m totally against these kinds of plot because it’s just so much easier to tell the person the truth, then hide a secret that is really silly to keep in the first place.

The beginning of the book is really cute and made me laugh out loud. I liked that the Heroine chooses to write at
I'm obviously the only one who feels this way but this book fell a little short for me. Maybe I went in with too many expectations, who knows. Basically, I wanted to love it but I didn't.

Kate Smith is a writer who finds out that a certain tire shop is where her writing magic happens, you know, she finds her mojo. So she finds any every excuse to hang out there, up to and including sneaking in. And eating all of their pastries. That's when she sees/meets Miles. He works there and sparks fly. Mil

ARC from the author

If you’re a romance reader and interactive in lots of groups on Facebook, then it’s practically impossible to have missed the story of Amy Daws, the author who penned almost an entire novel in the waiting room of a local tire place. Wait with Me mimics that story (minus the falling in love with one of the mechanics part,) and it was such a fun read.

I have to admit, it was the sexy as hell cover that originally caught my eye. There is just something about the idea of a sexy mec

It's rare I find a rom com 5 star worthy, but this one so is!! Kate is so perfect and not in your typical lead heroine kind of way. She's real and fun and you can see the draw to her from the get go. And Miles...oh Miles! He is the perfect book bf. He's real like Kate but in a sexy, grease your wheels kind of way ;) if you know what I mean. I laughed out loud numerous times and had my heart strings pulled as well. It was the perfect balance and by far my favorite A

**UPDATE**I just posted my review two minutes ago and felt that 3 stars was too much, so I came back and went with 2. I can breath better now. Proceed.

Not my jam

This was my first book by Daws and to be honest, I was disappointed. I just wanted a little more depth in the characters. I felt that their behaviors and personalities were superficial and bland. Especially Miles phobia of having drama in his life. Cue eye roll. It just wasn't for me.

I have been a big fan of Amy's since I read the book, Pointe of Breaking, with Sarah J Pepper and I have followed both authors religiously since then. So I was able to see the goofiness unwrapping with Amy finding herself continuously going to a tire shop to write and all craziness that happened because she kept returning. And that is how this book came to fruition.
