My life is a mess. Literally.

I’m a single dad, which means If I’m not cleaning up spilled milk or changing a diaper, I’m pulling gum from my daughter’s hair. I barely have enough time to eat—let alone sleep.

And women? Forget about it. That ship sailed two years ago along with my ex-wife. My brother says I need to get laid. I say, screw that. I’m content with my lif

A very sweet and beautiful romance read. I liked the concept of a female pop star celebrity and a single father with three adorable children!! It was different, well written, dual pov and the characters were wonderful!

I liked it, but it needed something more -- there seemed to be a lot of holes in the storyline. Never felt like the whole story found its way onto the page. I would have enjoyed a little more definition. There was a lot of repetitive day-to-day activities when I needed more answers to the heavier stuff going on. Easy read and the kiddos put some fun & games & laughter into the picture as well.

Gosh I have a weakness for this trope. I love a single dad romance. These type of stories are always so adorable and cute but then somehow they can be so steamy too.

Wait For Me was such a delight!
Is it odd to say that I had such an amazing time reading about the chaos and juggling of Grayson's life? because regardless of it all, there were so some heart melting moments of cuteness overload between him and his children. Plus he is all all round good man (who doesn't want to read a story about a s

4.5, Worth The Wait, Stars!!

“Nora’s eyes are hot and commanding as she looks at me. I’ve never been stared at like this by a woman. It’s like she wants to devour me.”

“I’m the moth to her flame. Her body calls to me, and now that I’ve had a taste of her, I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to stop.”

“Nora Hayes owns me. She ruined me for every other woman in the world.”

When I first picked up this book, my initial thought was bring it! Wait For Me started off with one heck of a bang and left me totally
4.5 sweet stars!

Nora is America’s sweetheart. Having been discovered at ten, she’s grown up in the spotlight. She has little creative freedom when it comes to her music and she is tired of it. People still see her as the sweet girl she was when she started but she is ready to show the world just who she is as a woman.
Being a clean-cut good girl is part of my job description - part of who I am.
Or, who I used to be.

Grayson and Nora were just a beautiful couple to read about. There was nothing in this story I didn't enjoy.

Grayson is an amazing single dad to three of the cutest book kids. I loved how hard and unapologetically he loves them, you can feel the love jumping off the pages. Everyone needs a Grayson in their life. He's hardworking and focused on one thing his kids happiness. Like alot of parents he doesn't have much of a life outside work & family.

This story captured my heart! K.L. Grayson doesn’t disappoint with this unique and heartwarming story.

Grayson Calhoun is a devoted single father to three delightfully adorable kids. His focus on his children was admirable and had me swooning with his love for and care of his children.

Nora Hayes, now 23, wants to break free of her child star persona. She feels she’s not able to really portray her self as a woman and break out of the role that she’s played since she was ten. She takes a break fro

I love single father stories especially when they are such good men and so deserving of a happily ever after.
Grayson has been left by his wife with three kids to take care of. He’s a great father, works hard to provide for his children and has the help of his good friends, his brother and parents when he needs it.
Nora is a famous singer who is staying with her brother for the summer after breaking up with her famous boyfriend in the best of ways...she needs to be low key for a little while.

I'm trying really hard to find something nice to say about this story, but it's really hard. The writing isn't terrible, but the whole story is just awful.

The story starts with Nora, a child TV star/singer who wants to drop her sweet good girl image. Before the start of the book, she apparently did an award show performance in a leather body suit, and she got flack for it. I don't know. Honestly, it all felt very Miley Cyrus after that ridiculous performance at the VMAs in that hideous beige num

Everyone knows Nora from her acting career that started as a child. It is difficult to find a relationship that is real and not someone using her. Finally, Nora believes she is with the right man until she finds him cheating. Her reaction puts her on the front page for all the wrong reasons. She needs to get out of the spotlight for a time to regroup. Her brother welcomes her home.

Grayson Calhoun is a friend of Nora’s brother. They help him occasionally with his three kids. There are times when

I've read just about every K.L. Grayson book since she started publishing.  I love her style of writing and her character and plot development abilities.  She has a way of making you feel like you are living in the book.  But I have to say that this book!  This is my favorite of all of her books she's written to date!  I fell in love so hard with her heroine!  Her vulnerability and her strength are just want I want in a good character and Ms. Grayson delivers on this one in every way!

This book was so sweet! There is no other words to describe it

Nora has been a child star for so long. Now she is a grown up, yet people still see her as the sweet innocent little girl she started as. Nobody is taking her seriously. And when she finds out that her boyfriend is also just another way to control her, she takes a break. And where better than to go to her brother and spend the summer with him and his wife.
She didn't expect to meet Grayson and she sure as hell didn't expect

K.L. Grayson is back with another beautiful read. Wait For Me is a standalone, contemporary romance between a child star and a single father. Nora is a child star who is now 23 years old, and wants to shed her current image. Grayson is a single father of 3 children who restores cars for a living. I adored Grayson. He was doing an amazing job being a single parent to 3 young kids. He was exhausted, and overwhelmed like many parents are, and I definitely related to that! I will say the author real ...more

5 out of 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Grayson is such a great single dad. He obviously loves his kids more than anything in the world. Nora is just trying to regroup and take back her life after being the teen star America loved, but wanting to be a grown woman instead of her past self.

This novel was the first one in a long time that I really devoured...loved...couldn't put down. I have been in a serious reading funk lately, but this book brought me back to life! This author made the story so easy to

Wait For Me was such a great read. I loved everything about it. However, I have to say that the 3 little humans Jack, Henry and Emma stole my heart. Those kids were more than secondary characters, they were the core of the story for me.
I don't think I have ever fallen as hard for a single dad with children. Grayson is simply PERFECT and without a doubt best book boyfriend material. He ticked all the boxes

In a nutshell, Grayson is the hot, romantic, adorable single dad who revolves his life ar

I’m a huge fan of the single dad trope; there’s just something so sexy about a dad who loves his kids and does whatever it takes to ensure their happiness and safety regardless of how difficult it is to go about things on his own. Grayson Callhoun is one hell of a father to his three kids, and while he may not be the best chaos coordinator at times due to his personal and professional responsibilities, it’s easy to see how much he adores his children, how they keep him going when he’s ready to q ...more

I just fell in love with a single dad. His most endearing qualities are his love for his kids and his total unawareness of how handsome and attractive he is. Grayson Calhoun is the all-American boy and everything a girl could want in a man. Through no fault of his own, he is now raising three kids on his own and nowhere near ready for or expecting romance.

Nora Hayes probably hasn’t made a decision on her own in many years due to her celebrity status. When she finds out that not even her rela

Wait for Me gave me everything I love in a single parent romance. A hardworking, invested and would do anything for his kids hero. A heroine with a heart of gold that you can’t help but adore. And adorable children that’ll melt your heart and bring all the smiles. I loved this book and the story behind these amazing characters.

I absolutely adore Wait for Me by K.L. Grayson, the single dad parent trope is one of my favorites!

The Blurb Says it All...

K.L. Grayson's blurb for this book pretty much tells you exactly what happens, however it's the details that make it a great read.

Single dad and pop star shouldn't ever work in this reality, they are from two totally different worlds, the problem is, she's sick of her world. The single dad is a fresh breath of normal for our pop star, something she's craved for so long.

5 star review of Wait For Me by KL Grayson

Single parent romances have fast become one of my favourite tropes; in fact I would almost say I have become addicted to them.

I am new to K L Grayson and I have no idea why that is based on this book and I will certainly be looking to read more from her as soon as I can.

Single dad’s stories I get, I get that they have to balance life, work and finding love-if that is even possible. Grayson wants what is best for his three kids; he wants them happy and loved by someone that could be a mom. He just didn’t know it was going to come as a famous person.
Nora is at the top of her game, she is loved by so many and her fans are very loyal. But at what cost is it to her, she just wants to wear her own things and sing her way. Yet every time she tries she gets told what
