I’m unapologetically in love with Nick Kovac.
He can claim to hate me and blame me for everything.
I’ll fight for us both.

He severs the promise he made, leaving me on the hockey rink floor, heartbroken and alone.

It doesn’t take me long to stand with my head held high, while he's being a coward. Stuck between push and pull, everything we are is in question.

"I've been under a different sky with you. That's what you called it. I've felt the magic under the starry skies, but I want something new with you. What I want is for us to wait for the sun to come up."

Honestly, there really ARE no words to truly express just how much I loved this book. Waiting for the Sun is the most real, raw and emotional book I have EVER read. You will break as you read this book as you did with Under a Different Sky. I won't lie and say that you won't, but you'll heal too.

Second and the last book in the Hand me over your heart due will be here on 11th November. The first book, Under a differenent sky ends on a cliffhanger and in this second book, Nick and Hannah’s stroy continues. You cannot read the second book, waiting for the sun without reading the first one.

Waiting for the Sun by Lindsey Iler is the second book in the Hand Over My Heart Duet. This book picks up right where the first book Under a Different Sky leaves off. We find Nick and Hannah dealing with the realities the truth brings into their lives. There are a ton of ups and downs and all the feels!

This was a great conclusion to Nick and Hannah's story and the author did a wonderful job of dealing with some very mature and serious issues. This story could have

I have nor words to describe this book that will do it any justice. Nick and Hannah are one of my favorite couples ever, so reading this book was bittersweet. I wanted them to have a happy ending but reading the end of their story made so very sad.

I knew going into Waiting for the Sun Iler was going to cause me emotional distress. I even took Benadryl before I started reading to make sure my eyes didn't get so swollen. And I was absolutely right! I found myself crying and crying, even at parts I

I have been desperate for the conclusion of Nick and Hannah’s love story. Waiting For the Sun is gut wrenching, its filled with angst and turmoil. This story just captures with all the feels.

This was a great conclusion to Nick and Hannah's story and the Lindsey did a fantastic job of dealing with some very mature and serious issues.

First of all, Waiting for the Sun is the conclusion in the Hand Over My Heart Duet, so there's no way around it, YOU MUST READ Under a Different Sky (Book 1) FIRST! Now, I'm all for angst and/or big push & pull, but this is just me, those two things were TOO EXTRA, and I was literally ready to pull my hair out, plus had to put the book down more than once. I know some of the topics that Nick & Hannah were dealing with were no joke, but still, I didn't care if they found other people to ...more

When reading a book and you come to a cliffhanger, the feeling can be devastating. But we knew that we just needed to give Lindsey time to get all her thoughts written down. To allow Hannah and Nick to speak to her. When you receive the 2nd half of such an intense story, you know that it will be a wild ride but you are always waiting for everything to be wrapped up nice and neat. There is nothing nice and neat about this story. These are two hormone driven, angry, and still grieving teenagers. I ...more

Minor spoilers ahead.

I loved the first book, Under a Different Sky, but I'm not sure about my feelings with this one. Probably closer to a 2.5 rating.

There's a lot of back and forth, a lot of push and pull. One step forward, two steps back, right till the very end. What to make of Nick? I constantly had to remind myself that we're talking a 17yo, a grieving one at that, and not a rational adult (though at the same time, kudos to Lindsey for writing an authentic teenager; it's just that I can't

I had a tough time rating this book. I love how authentic and real Lindsey writes her teen characters. She brings me back to the time when we're all that age and how emotional and hormonal we were as teens. Such a confusing time trying to figure out who we were and then add a serious relationship in the mix it's a cluster fk of feelings!!

My issues with the storyline is the constant push/pull I think it went on too long. It's just got to be repetitive. The inconsistent timeline... At one point

Perfection!!!!

The perfect end to a perfect story!!!!

We are finally back in the world of nick and hannah in a story full of love ,loss ,hurt, heartache and passion a story that shows us that true love isn't always down the easy path but sometimes if we believe in that love we have to fight our hardest battles.

Nick and hannah's conclusion is full of high angst that will definitely give you whiplash and leave you screaming at your kindle wanting to strangle nick but its sooo worth it , this was

Oh Nick Kovac. I've waited forever for you to come back to me. I couldn't wait for the conclusion of your and Hannah's story. And my, oh my I was not disappointed.


Every word touched my soul. I felt the story deep within me. Their love, their conflict...and I so badly wanted to fix it all for them. Watching this story unfold I held my breath as tears poured down my face. And I cheered loudly when then book concluded and we were given the only proper ending fit for our Nick and Hannah.

This book was super disappointing. The writing was not near as good as the first one. There were no feelings for me. It was super choppy-the timeline was tough to follow. It was also INCREDIBLY redundant and repetitive with the constant back and forth. It was unbelievably annoying. There wasn’t near enough character growth-the author definitely should have skipped ahead a few years and had this book take place then. Very disappointed since I loved the first book so much and had been

DON’T WAIT TO READ....THEY’RE EVERYTHING!
Nick & Hannah...man they had it rough and couldn’t get it together, but every obstacle brought them to the letter their moment of truth! For me the moment I wanted to punch Kellan... for every time he turned his back on Nick and Hannah....they really let him skate by because he was grieving.
Sanderson a whole different story....why do jerks get away with so much?!?

Endearing is the first word that popped in my mind when I thought back to the journey this book took me on. It was sad, excruciatingly so at times and quite often I felt like this couple couldn't possibly handle any more and that no one could ever be dealt so much in such a short time. The story felt a bit drawn out, but that made it so much more real, cause nothing in life is a quick fix, most things take a lifetime. This book was an eye opener and made me think about how lucky we are to have ...more

"Love is ruthless. Hold tight even when it feels like a knockdown, drag out fight."

If you have been reading my reviews since I started then you know I'm a huge Lindsey Iler fan. I would actually consider her a friend. She's the one that gave me the extra push to start a blog, she's the one that gave me the extra push to actually start writing my own book, and she has helped me so much with everything since I started. With all that being said, I would tell her if I didn't like something that

I read most of book one yesterday.. staying up until 2-2:30 in the morning to finish it because I couldn't put it down. I woke up today and IMMEDIATELY picked up this book because I wanted the rest of Nick and Hannah's story. I knew I wouldn't be sleeping until the last page had been read. This is quite the emotional journey. I don't reach for hard hitting

Right away we are full speed ahead on an emotional roller coaster as these two try and navigate through everything that life is throwing at them. The author didn’t hold back in this story.

This was such a good conclusion although there were definitely a lot of heartbreaking moments that left me a little broken.

I understood how much Nick was hurting from the letter he read but at the same time I was so mad at the way he treated Hannah. Nick was falling apart once again and really had no one and had to deal with the repercussions of his actions in the first book that landed him in front of a judge. I was truly disappointed in how he treated Hannah and how cruel he was to her and I

Oh man. Waiting for the Sun was a phenomenal read.
Lindsey completely blew my mind with this the ending to this duet, and while I think it ended perfectly, I am a bit sad. I am not ready to let these characters go...I love Nick &Hannah, plus all their friends. I could read SO much more about all of the character's in this book.
But, despite the fact that I am sad to see the character's stories have come to the end, this duet is everything!

I fell in love with Nick and Hannah all over again! There were so many times where my heart either stopped or skipped a beat. Nick totally redeemed himself in this story and I love him just a bit more for it!

I had a hard time empathizing with Mia in Under a Different Sky because I thought she put Hannah in a really unfair situation. And I continued to feel the same about her for most of Waiting for the Sun. But then Lindsey Iler has Kellan give that letter to Hannah and I instantly forgave Mia.

I'm literally blown away!!!! Iler created a masterpiece with Nick and Hannah's story! It's gut wrenching, its filled with angst and turmoil. Waiting for the Sun just blinds you with all the feels.

Immediately, you are sucked back into the angst, that is, Nick and Hannah. I could feel my blood, pounding in my veins, the moment I started reading.

Nick's pain is palpable to nothing else. I literally felt it in my bones. Its raw, it's real its damaging. Iler drew me into his pain effortlessly,

After reading the first book in the series, I was a bit confused on how the ended left off. I knew that something big was revealed, but it was not explained in a dumbed down way. Waiting for the Sun definitely took care of the questions that I had and it makes PERFECT sense now.

This duet is heartbreaking, like legit, there were tears while reading this. Not only for the characters and their feelings but the entire freaking situation. Nick and Hannah's relationship is SO RAW but it is beautiful

I fell in love with Nick and Hannah's story in Under a Different Sky and fell more in love with them in Waiting for the Sun. The story starts with Nick leaving Hannah at the ice rink after he finds the letter. These two went through it all. There is so much emotional baggage and so much what if's, is this right, what will people say and can this really work that goes on back and forth between these two and it's hard to fight for someone when one of them gives up.

After I finished this book, I had to give myself time to process how I felt about it. There were parts that made me want to tear my hair out, parts that made me want to throw the book, parts that made me laugh and I didn’t know how I felt about it. Part of me wanted to hate it because of the range of emotions I felt, but then I realized that’s what made it such a good book. It’s not a comfortable read where two people fall in love, have a little fight, work it out and live happily ever after. ...more
