Wait For Me by K.L. Grayson
Release Date: July 23, 2019
Wait for Me, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by USA Today bestselling author K.L. Grayson.
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 life, until pop star Nora Hayes walks through my best friend’s front door and flips my world upside down.
She’s beautiful, famous, and completely off limits.
My life is a headline waiting to happen. Literally.
It all started with fishnet stockings and ended with a baseball bat to boyfriend’s Porsche, putting me on the front page of every newspaper and gossip magazine in the country.
My life is spiraling out of control and I’m ready to make some serious changes. What I’m not ready for is a hunky man to strut his jean clad tush into my life. Grayson Calhoun is as rugged as he is sweet. He’s also way in over his head with his kids, and I have an offer I’m hoping he can’t refuse.
What starts as an agreement, turns to a friendship, and quickly escalates to stolen kisses and heated nights spent wrapped in each other’s arms. What we have is temporary. I promise him that I won’t fall in love.
But I make that promise already knowing it’s a lie.

Review by Jen Skewes

I have read may books by Ms. Grayson and loved them all.  But this one!!  Oh My God, I think this may just be my favorite books of hers.  It is a single dad, best friend’s sister romance which I love, especially the single dad part.  Ms. Grayson never seems to disappoint.  She has the ability to write amazing characters, and makes you feel like you are a part of their lives, feeling everything with them.  And Wait For Me was no different.  Grayson and Nora are two characters that you fall in love with from the moment you meet them, but I think that Grayson’s three adorable children stole the show!!! 

Nora is a celebrity whose life seems to be getting a little out of control lately.  After she finds her boyfriend cheating, she reacts in a way that is so unlike her.  She needs a break and the perfect place to do that is to go stay with her brother and sister in law for a little while.  She is only there for the summer, just to relax, take a breath ad figure out what comes next for her.  When she meets her brother’ best friend, Grayson, she soon finds out that he has completely derailed her plans.  Because meeting a guy was not on her agenda.  And falling in love was nowhere on her radar at all.  But Grayson and his three children have completely captured her heart. And it is so easy to see why.  

Grayson has had a tough couple of years.  His wife left and he is raising his kids on his own. He gets help from friends and his brother but running a business and raising three kids by yourself is hard work. He doesn’t have time for a love life and has no plans of falling in love or dating.  Until he meets her!!  From the moment he met Nora he was instantly attracted and could not stop thinking of her. He knows that her life is back in LA and that she is only here for the Summer, but that does not stop him from wanting her.  She’s this beautiful and amazing woman who is so caring, fun to hang out with and most importantly she loves his kids.  She doesn’t plan on staying, but could meeting Grayson be a game changer?

I loved this book so much. It is one of those books that from the moment you start reading you do not want to put down.  The day after I finished reading it, I was excited to continue reading only to remember that it was over.  So, I guess you can say I had a huge book hangover.  

What made this book so good was honestly the characters.  The story line was perfect and the words were flawlessly written.  But for me it’s the characters that really got me.  Grayson is this amazing father who loves his children, but he deserves to find someone to love and will love him back.  He is kind, sweet, fun and of course sext.  Honestly who does not love a hot single dad?

Nora is this famous musician, but I think there is also this vulnerability to her as well.  She is not your stereo typical celebrity.  She cares about her family and honestly seeing how she got in the business and grew up, in a ways made me really feel for her.  This life is all she has known.  And seeing her with Greyson and how well they connected, how happy she was, just melted my heart.  And the bond that she formed with his children was everything.  

I cannot say enough good things about this book.  It was written perfectly.  The right amount of drama and angst, two characters who had so much chemistry and a deep connection that was felt every time they were together.  Throw in three adorable children and you have the perfect and beautiful love story!!!  A Must read!!

What is all of this?” she asks, flipping through the pages of my chicken scratch.

“Ideas from Marnie.”

“Who’s Marnie?”

“The manager I spoke with. Keep up, Jessa.”

“Sorry. Tell me about her.”

“There isn’t much to tell. She was nice. We talked about what went wrong with Becky, where my career has been, and the direction I want to take it. And get this, she outlined a plan for making it happen. We video conferenced for almost three hours, and I’m really impressed with her.”

“So, what happens now?”

“I told her I’m not ready to go back to LA, and she agreed. I’m going to spend the summer working on some of my own songs for the next album. She’s going to talk with the music execs and make sure they’re on the same page as us.”

“And if they’re not?”

“Then we’ll go somewhere else. They aren’t the only label in town. Anyway, Marnie thinks it’s a good idea to lay low after what happened with Todd—let the media interest die down while she works on putting our plan in motion, and when I go to Todd’s premiere, Marnie and I will meet in person.”

“You still have to go to Todd’s premiere?”

I groan and drop onto the bed beside Jessa. “Unfortunately.”

“That sucks.”

“It is what it is. I shouldn’t have bashed the hell out of his Porsche or stolen his BMW, although it felt great. Lesson learned. Next time I’ll beat up the guy, not the car.”

“Let’s hope there isn’t a next time. I thought your brother was going to lose his mind when you called and told us what happened. He was ready to hop a plane and hunt Todd down.”

I smile at the thought. Nick isn’t a fighter, but I know he’d go head to head if it meant protecting Jessa or me. “Thank you again for letting me crash here.”

“Stop thanking us. You’re family. This is your home too.”

I rest my hand on hers and squeeze it gently. “Love you, Jessa.”

“I hate to break up the chick fest,” Nick says, appearing in the doorway, “but I’m starving.”

“What are you doing home from work?” I ask.

“Didn’t you hear me? I’m starving. I was hoping one of you would make me lunch.”

I give Jessa a nudge. “He’s your husband.”

Nick holds out his hand and pulls Jessa into his arms. The way they look at each other, with stars in their eyes, is absolutely adorable, and also a little disgusting.

They kiss, and Jessa melts. I want what they have.

When Nick deepens the kiss, I throw a pillow at their heads.

“Can you take that into another room, please?”

The two lovebirds laugh and stumble out, but the giggling doesn’t stop. I hear another door shut and then a thump, followed by a moan. I cover my ears and flop back on the bed.

This is going to be a long summer.
