I really enjoyed this book it was fun but also had a serious side to it.

Violet Blake is looking for a new start. When her nan’s old house becomes available to buy she snaps up the opportunity without a second thought. The reality is a mess. The place needs work. Lucky for her the new neighbours are looking out for her.

Milo has always had a thing for the beauty that visited her nan as a girl. Her golden blonde hair and glimpses he managed to sneak of her gain Violet the nickname Rapunzel. Years

Violet needs a fresh start from her life so she buys her Nan’s house and moves. The house is a disaster and in need of a lot of repairs. Cue … Milo :) Now Milo’s been crushing on Violet from the moment he saw her as a young girl when she came to visit her Nan, so this is his opportunity to get the girl! And get the girl he does … in a seriously short amount of time in my opinion, which is one of the two things I wasn’t happy about in this book. Here’s the thing, there are a million reasons plus ...more

Violet gets her grandmother's house and goes to live there after her recent divorce. She wants to start over and she's hoping that she will achieve that in a place that she holds dearly in her memories. The house seems to be a disaster though and the previous residents destroyed it more or less. There comes the Waite family who have a constructive company and agree to help her with fixing up her house.

Absolutely full of a bit of drama this book of the family kind gripping you right from the offset, no wonder I've turned to zombie status and needed time to catch up on sleep.

Violet Blake and Milo Waite are a match made in heaven head strong gutsy individuals but with a past behind them that could pull them together or push them apart. Making us go on this whirlwind adventure unsure of which direction we are going to go.

Waiting For Milo was a sweet insta love story about two neighbours who fall in love. It was an introduction to a new series and a whole family that had been struck by a tragedy many years ago and that one moment in their lives affected the two families involved even more than they knew.

Years laten when Violet buys her grandmas house and finally meets the whole Waite family... things slowly start to be revealed and people are forced to face their past and work through their emo

What an amazing start to a new series! I was hooked from start to finish!

Milo Waite is one loveable caveman. Violet really didn’t stand a chance against him.

This book was so addictive and I’ve loved meeting Milo’s family although we are yet to meet Ezra, I can’t wait to read his story!
There’s twists and so many laughs to be had, and that ending!!! Holy wow!

Waiting For Milo is a second chance, insta-love romance which has laugh-out-loud moments but a serious side which made you think too.

Violet Blake moves back to the town she spent time in when visiting her grandmother as a child, after a messy divorce. She buys the old house her grandmother owned without a second thought, which turns out to need a lot of work thanks to the previous owners. She remembers that her new neighbours, the Waite family, used to be in the building trade, although she nev

Every prince wants a princess and knows they're worth waiting for.
Milo Waite has been obsessed with the girl he's called Rapunzel for years, trying his best to catch a glimpse of her in her tower whenever possible. But when the gate to the castle gets locked it looks like she'll never be rescued by him.
Fast forward quite a few years to what appears to be another damsel needing rescuing........

This story was one that I was really looking forward to reading as I was intrigued by the blurb, yet here I am, thinking about how this book was great in some parts, and yet just ok in the others.
Violet comes back to town, after nasty events and she wants a fresh start at her nan's house. She wants peace and just lives her day to day life.
Milo was in love (I think I can call it that) with Rapunzel since he saw her in her tower and after long years of not being in the same place, Vi can back, and

After her painful divorce all Violet wants is a new beginning and where better than the place that holds so many happy childhood memories, so she purchases her nan’s house. The only problem is that she didn’t realize it could have starred in a renovation show on tv and she now finds herself needing some assistance.

Waiting for Milo is a charming romance. Violet wants a fresh start so she buys her grandmother's house. The house is in worse shape than she realized and enlists the help of Milo. And that's when their love story begins.

Violet has left her old life behind and is looking to settle down in her hometown. She is a little lost and wants to find herself again. Milo is so charming and kind. He works on her house after some convincing.

This book was literally unputdownable. I started at 1:30am thinking I would just read a few chapters to help me get back to sleep and then before I knew it, I had finished the book and it was 4:30am. It has been a long time since a book has pulled me in like this! Milo and Vi are EVRYTHING!! From the first page you can feel the love that Milo has for Vi. The comedy between them was great too as it added another element to the book. This is definitely my favourite book written by Angel so far, I ...more

I loved the banter between Violet and Milo...their scenes definitely kept the story moving. There were a few times I caught myself rushing through everything else just to get back to them. Overall a great read, though I wanted to smack each of them for their stubbornness.

"Rapunzel is all grown up now. She doesn't need a prince. Doesn't need rescuing. She's got this. "
Kinda sorta 🙈

Straight up this had me rolling my eyes one minute at the absurdly impossible then laughing the next at their insane antics
Know going in this is a light-hearted romance with a small touch of angst and a whole lot of "Milo, No!"'s (you'll see)

"He called her Rapunzel.

Can he rescue his princess and live happily ever after?"

Violet is determined to make a fresh start after her divorce, so when her Nan's house came up for sale, she snapped it up for said fresh start. However, the house is a straight up disaster, as it hasn't been taken very good care of, which leads her to hiring Milo Waite to help her renovate it. It's more than just a job for Milo, who had harbored a secret crush on her since

Waiting for Milo is kind of a modern-day fairy tale with some family drama and an instalove connection. Sometimes when you know, you just know, and that's where it is for Milo when he sees 'Rapunzel' or Violet after so many years. Now, I'm not a believer in love at first sight by any means, and instalove really isn't a trope I care much for in contemporary romance. However, Milo and Vi were so much fun that it didn't bother me here. Milo is a force to be reckoned with. He's overbearing, stubborn ...more

** An ARC was provided in exchange for my honest review **

Okay. This was honestly an adorably cute read. Yes, it’s an adult romance but it’s definitely more on the tamer side when it comes to the physical stuff (or at least the way the author has described those scenes.. the steaminess is on the down low).

Besides it being an adult romance book, the story centers around Violet and Milo who were somewhat childhood next door neighbours. Milo Waite and his family lived next do
Janine - The World Was Hers for the Reading
A childhood fairytale story comes to life for Milo Waite when the Rapunzel from his childhood becomes his new neighbor and finds herself in need of rescuing by a contractor, which happens to be Milo’s speciality.

When Violet Blake buys her Nan’s old home sight unseen at auction, she’s shocked to find it’s in gross disrepair. Even more shocking is the fact that the mysterious Waite family that she wasn’t supposed to associate as a child still lives next door.

When Milo realizes Violet is back, he

Waiting for Milo is a cute story with a side of seriousness. It follows the characters Violet Blake who is looking for a new start and is nostalgic about the former house that she used to stay in with her Nan. Moving back to the small town is all about thinking about the past and moving into the future, but along the way Violet bumps back into the Waite family, who used to be her Nan's neighbours and especially bumps into Milo Waite, caveman, protector and stubborn mule who has had a crush on Vi ...more

I don’t know if Violet is brave or crazy as she buys her grandmother’s house at an auction without seeing the inside. She never expects to see a hole in the ceiling from the master bedroom into the living room. Her dream of fixing up this house just got more challenging. Running into one of the Waite brothers at the local store is as if fate is helping her out.
