A whole lot of awkward, thats what.

The big snag: Sam and Maggies chemistry is hot enough to melt ice, which

I happened to enjoy this second entry of the Wait with Me series by Amy Daws. The main fella was a hoot and his continued interaction with our gal was quirky and then sweet. She was determined to become different for all the wrong reasons and with these two people interacting... both ended up changing insightfully for the better.

Favorite Quotes:

An older gentleman shoulders past me with his clear plastic tub, ready to collect his bait as though its the body of Christ being passed out by the pope himself. Several other men press up against my back, all anxiously awaiting their turn because finallyice fishing season has begun.

This is the second book I read in this series. So far, I am not impress with it.

The story/ plot is standard. The banter is funny and alive. And that's it. What I do not like is the dramatic queen of Maggie. God! She is a very selfish heroine. She has this attitude of me, me and me. And also the forbidden relationship with her brother's best friend is... lame.

The story is also dragging. I have to admit I am bit bored during the middle.

Overall, I still can enjoy this book OK. I wish Miss Daws

ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.

After Amy released Wait with Me, I was hoping to see the other characters in the book get their own stories, and I was excited when it was announced this would become a series.

We've met Sam before, as he works with Miles at Tire Depot, and we have had a brief introduction to Maggie as well, as Miles speaks to her in the first book. I love a good best friends brother/sister book and so when I realised this was Miles little sister

Man, did Maggie crack me up. She was definitely an "unhinged romantic"! I loved Sam! This just misses 5 stars from me for 2 reasons. Miles seemed to be a different person in this book. I don't remember him being so goofy. And Maggie's insistence on Sterling being her "true love", yet having no issues with fooling around with Sam bothered me. No, it was not cheating. But if Sterling was the man she was supposed to be with, why was it so easy for her to be with Sam?? She should have realized ...more

An unexpected meeting in a bait shop turns into a whirlwind romance. Next in Line was witty, sassy, funny, and sexy! Add in forbidden and age-gap to the mix and things were bound to get scandalous 🙊

Sam! I was drawn and completely intrigued by the bearded ginger since meeting him in Wait With Me and he did not disappoint. He's 31 and will be taking over his uncle Terry's tire shop soon. You could say he's a little bit jaded when it comes to love and relationships, so you can only imagine

Warning this review will be a rant.

Look, I liked the first book in the series and so I was REALLY excited to start the audio of Next in Line.

BUT Even the awesome narrators of Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton couldnt save this book for me

There are a few things I liked about this book.

The cover is hot.
There are steamy scenes in the book.
I love the narrators.
Who doesnt like ice fishing?

And on to the things that didnt work for me.

Ive wanted to read Next in Line as soon as I knew it was Sams story! Ive enjoyed him in Wait for me so it was obvious I needed to know more.

However I has such a hard time connecting with Maggie! I found her to be so immature, too innocent but you know what? Its also why I ended the book loving her because of her characters growth, because Maggie might not be the usual self-assured you found in books these days but she has a sparkling personality you get attached to.

This book makes me smile like a freaking cheeseball! From the fishing puns to the best friend's little sister trope, to the romantic grand gesture at the end...I have never had a book appear like a movie in my head as much as I have with Next In Line! I am so excited for you all to read Maggie & Sam's love story and I hope you fall for these hilarious characters hook, line, and sinker!

OMG! Who would ever believe that a romance could begin in a smelly old bait shop and end up being one of the best fun-to-read rom-coms that has found its way into my Kindle in a very long time. I never particularly gave much thought to ice fishing before, but one hot ginger-headed guy with a heart of gold certainly proved it can be done. An age difference of 9 years between this couple with the added best friend's little sister trope really ramped up the game and add in the off-the-chart ...more

That's why I don't like sequels with different characters yet the same setting, the read was just so unsurprisingly boring.

This was a fun listen, totally engaging with a couple who werent perfect by any means but I felt invested quite quickly. There were many laugh out loud moments, with dialogue that lightened my day.

This is a tale of age difference, small town ruggedness, beards, ice-fishing and evolution. The heroine, Maggie was slightly annoying and superficial; she seemed young and a little spoilt. Sam, her brothers best friend, was mature in age and life experience, he was also a stand-up guy but a bit of a

There is nothing Amy Daws cannot do. Make me fall in love with a tire shop romance? Done. Make me swoon over ice-fishing romance? You bet. Each installment is hilariously charming and utterly swoon worthy.

Sam and Maggie are just perfect. Their friendship and chemistry and banter is just the icing on the cake. I love their conversations, and I love the accidental forbidden relationship, and I love that their love of fishing runs the whole way
3.5 stars.

It has been a while since I read the first book in this series "Wait With Me" which was an introduction to Amy Daws writing for me and also a total delight to I had equally high expectations for this follow up storyline about Mile's sister Maggie and his best friend/boss Sam....but for some reason even though I liked many parts of it...I felt it lacked in consistency ...infact there were times were I zoned out more than a little.
I really did think that Sam was a sweet guy

I absolutely loved the first book, Wait With Me.
This book is about Miles' friend Sam. Sam is the manager of Tire Depot & nephew of the owner.
The heroine is Miles' sister Maggie. Maggie comes to town to visit her brother. She secretly arrives early to get her story straight about her being dumped by her meh football player boyfriend. He had the nerve to call her basic. Maggie is really bubbly and friendly. I think that he may have meant that she isn't athletic. Which she certainly isn't.

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author.. So I read as soon as I got this book, since I loved the first book in this series. This is Sam's story and his love interest Maggie. I got say did not like Maggie, and I kept hoping that eventually I would, but the end I didn't hate her but still kind of wished that Sam had somebody else. Maggie was dumped by her boyfriend and he had mentioned that she was basic, so to prove him wrong and that he would want her back she runs to where her older brother Miles ...more

I need my own Sam. I'm not gonna lie, Sam is the major draw in Next in Line. No shade to Maggie (though she was REALLY driving me nuts with her attachment to Sterling, but let's chalk that up to her youth), but Sam might just be the GOAT book boyfriend. He's sexy as h3!!, manly, about his business, loves his mama and his sisters and his nieces and nephews, is packing, and his views on reciprocation are PERF. Yep, the more I think about it the more GOAT he gets. And his backstory makes him even ...more

A sexy ginger, bearded male yumminess named Sam. A sassy, fun, woman trying to break out of her old shell named Maggie. We have sexual chemistry from the start and comedy relief around every corner. I laughed out lot throughout this story and enjoyed every moment.

I loved this book. I laughed way too hard too many times. I even cried for a second then busted laughing again. Amy Daws knows how to make someone laugh. I seriously need to read her other books. If your looking for a laugh and some swoon then this book is for you!!

As with the other books in this series I feel like I don't have much to say. They're not bad but nothing crazy special either. I had an enjoyable time reading and was a pretty good take on the brothers best friend trope but its been a few days now since I finished it and nothing was particularly memorable. Still fitting for the mood of what I was feeling like reading though!!

When Maggies boyfriend dumps her for being too basic, she decides to go on a series of adventures to prove to herself and her ex that theres more to her than meets the eye. She goes straight to Boulder, Colorado to stay with her brother but isnt ready to face the music. So thats how Maggie ends up in a bait & tackle shop. And somehow she ends up going ice fishing with a super sexy ginger.

Sam is 31 yet has never had a relationship. Hes always the casual kind of guy. But something about the

I enjoyed Wait With Me so much when Amy said there was going to be a book 2 I was all about it.
I love that the characters all interconnect and we still get Kate and Miles.

Maggie and Sam crack me up you can feel their chemistry from a mile away and that my friends is what makes a great romance book. Between the banter and their connection, you cant help but root for them even when they are not rooting for each other. ;)

I love how Maggie had to see with her own eyes what was right in front of

dnf at 31%; unfortunately, i couldn't get into this book. I don't think the writing was bad, or anything like that. I just really didn't like the main character, Maggie. She was super immature, and pretty ridiculous in my opinion. I personally couldn't get past that and gave up on the book.
The second book in the series. It was a nice, angst-free read, which is necessary once in a while to indulge in.

What a fun follow up to Wait with Me! Brother's best friend is such a great trope, and this slow burn romantic comedy was just what I needed. Sam and Maggie's meeting at Marv's bait shop was hilarious and hooked me right in. ;) This is book 2 in the interconnected series, but can definitely be enjoyed as a standalone (though characters from the previous book do appear).

I really loved Sam! He was gruff and standoffish, but

Sam has been on my mind ever since first meeting him in Wait With Me and oh my goodness his story was EVERYTHING...and so much more! While I absolutely loved Miles and Kate, nothing could compare to how I felt about Sam and Maggie (Miles's little sister...oh my). Their story instantly captivated my every thought and I found myself completely in love with their sweet and stolen moments. This bearded ginger and his best friend's little sister made

It's a good and enjoyable story, but if you really ask, I liked the previous book more.
This doesn't mean, Next in line doesn't worth the time to read it. It worth because of Sam and he's way to put always first Maggie's interest. To know how to get under her skin even if he has to "fight" against her" official" boyfriend. But Sam's strategy is gold. Let's say he knows how to catch the gold fish. While I'm at this point, the story gets a lot of ice fishing details. And that's can get a little
