This charming story will have you in the corner of this single father and innocent woman! When Valentina's and Lucas's packages get mixed up it starts the development of a romantic journey. Lucas has trust issues after his wife's betrayal who has died leaving him a single father. Valentina has led a sheltered life right up until she moved away from her parents. Can one innocent woman and a man who has lost trust in women find happiness together? This is a well written story that drew me in right from the beginning!
He makes an offer I can’t refuse. I never thought I was saving myself for anyone. Until Lucas.
My priorities are my daughter and my job as a first responder. Romance isn’t even on the radar. Until one little package changes everything.
In a single mind-blowing hour, I end up with a package meant for Valentina Smith, and I find out she’s innocent. I won’t even mention what’s in that package.
Next thing I know, my other brain gets the best of me. Valentina deserves the best, so that brain says, running my mouth like it has no business.
I don’t expect to fall for her. So hard it brings me to my knees. Did I mention she’s meant to be worshipped?
Wait For Me is perfect for readers who love small town romance, single father romance, smart, sassy & innocent heroines, slow burn, emotional romance with a dash of angst, plenty of swoon, and a deeply protective broody hero.
*A full-length, standalone romance.
I’ll start by saying I didn’t know when I first started reading this that it was the second book in the series. I have read many, but not all of Croix’s other books. I am sad to say this wasn’t my favorite series of hers. Usually I have no problem picking up a book out of order, for some reason with this one I felt a little lost about the other characters. Maybe if I read them in order it would help? Valentina was by far my favorite part of this book - she was honest, straightforward, and likable. I had high expectations after the mixed up box scene, but I had a har time staying engaged. I’ll definitely try another book by Croix
Loved the character of Valentina. Mail switch that caused the wrong person to get her vibrator truly memorable. And Lucas is very swoon worthy. Surely only a really
" nice guy" would offer to help her out if she " needed anything" -- right? LOL!
I'm really enjoying this series and getting to know all the characters. I loved Lucas & Valentina’s story. These two such a great couple. It takes them both awhile to figure it out but they eventually get there. A captivating read.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This is the sweet and hot romance of Lucas and Valentina.
I loved the storyline and characters. Being a single parent takes all of Lucas’s free time with no relationships in his future, but that changes when he bumps into Valentina where they work with a hand full of packages and gets hers by accident. They both work at Stolen Hearts Lodge a high end adventure resort, they also have rescue animals that bring a sweet side to the story.
Lucas and Valentina were perfect each other, and their chemistry simmered. After reading this one I hooked to read the rest. Would love to read more with all of these characters.
A single dad and a lady with many talents, a hurt heart and a compassionate heart. Taking a chance or staying protected but frozen. Challenges for our main characters.
I received a free copy of this book via BookFunnel and am voluntarily leaving a review.
The writing is good.. The story is good. I just wasn’t swept away by it all. HEA.
