Book Review - Worth the Wait by Lori Foster

ABOUT THE BOOK


Ready or not…love will find a way 
Single dad Hogan Guthrie is getting his life back on track, and working as the "barbecue master" at a local diner is just a temporary detour. He and restaurant owner Violet Shaw constantly butt heads…until one night they end up mingling other parts instead. Hogan thought he had the recipe for happiness all figured out. But loyal, carefree Violet is daring him to trust his impulses…and see just how sweet small-town living—and loving—can be. 
Nathan Hawley traded his SWAT team credentials for a sheriff's badge, but a gorgeous new neighbor is shaking up his orderly life. Nathan has a hunch there's more to Brooklin Sweet than meets the eye—but given her caution about getting involved, he has his work cut out for him. Still, there's something about the elusive beauty Nathan can't walk away from—and helping her come to terms with her past might pave the way to the future they both secretly long for.

REVIEW

This book read more like a movie script than a novel at times.  There is the A plot with Hogan and Violet and the B plot with Nathan and Brooklin.  And the stories a woven together for a single thread.  For me though, what really made this a great story was the relationship between Hogan and his teenage son Colt.  Colt was definitely the scene stealer for me in this book and I hope he gets his own story in the future.  This book is part of a series, but I didn't read the previous book and had no problem keeping up with the story at all. 


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
