Review: Wait for Me by K.L. Grayson

A woman like her could ruin a man in the best possible way. I'm not sure how I feel about that, or if I'm ready for it, but I don't have any other choice. With one kiss, she brands me.

K.L. Grayson knows the way to my bookaholic heart because it's paved with stories as heartwarming as hers. I have all her books on my tablet, although admittedly, I've only made my way through The Truth About Lennon, which was my first read from her, and the Dirty Dicks series. Prior to her new release, my latest read from her was Stay with Me, which also happens to be one of my top reads for 2019. Her newest novel is a companion novel to that aforementioned one, and Wait for Me was, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most unforgettable love stories featuring a single father--aka the single parent trope--I have ever had the pleasure of reading and falling for.

Nora Hayes was America's Sweetheart and it was a title that was well-earned. But years after she started her career, Nora's looking for a change, and it becomes clear that not everyone is as on-board about it as she'd hoped. At twenty-one, she wants to be able to sing songs and make decisions that reflect the woman she is today, not the persona of the girl everyone seems to still cling to. After discovering her boyfriend cheating on her--plus a secret or two that came to light--Nora decides to head to the small town where her brother and sister-in-law live. There she hopes to have some much needed time off to simply be before re-calibrating her career. What she ends up having, however, is a friendship with benefits with twenty-eight-year-old single father to three children, Grayson Calhoun.

Le sigh. I absolutely adored this novel! The single parent trope is one of my personal favorites, and without a doubt, K.L. Grayson a humdinger of a love story. There was heart, humor, and heat, and her main characters were very human, making mistakes but learning from them and not only as they try to figure out their developing relationship from flirty friends to committed lovers. I loved the chemistry between Grayson and Nora as much as I did the camaraderie that they shared with their respective families and friends. The most memorable, however, were definitely Grayson's kids--Jack, Emma, and Henry--each one stealing my heart, especially Jack. Like with everything else of this author's that I've read, I breezed through this novel in one sitting, swooning and sighing and smiling without a care in the world except for what was happening on Wait for Me's virtual pages. Five-plus stars. ♥
