    Second Read This was just as good the second time The only thing I would add to my review is two things I need to mention how I loved the way Saffron responded to conflict in their relationship It s the one thing I find lacking in most books I hate when the heroine doesn t stand up for herself or doesn t call the hero out on his behavior and do it in a mature way I loved it The second thing was the narrator I loved her I think she actually enhances this story and that is not something I Second Read This was just as good the second time The only thing I would add to my review is two things I need to mention how I loved the way Saffron responded to conflict in their relationship It s the one thing I find lacking in most books I hate when the heroine doesn t stand up for herself or doesn t call the hero out on his behavior and do it in a mature way I loved it The second thing was the narrator I loved her I think she actually enhances this story and that is not something I can always say in an audiobook I highly recommend listening to the audiobook.First Read This a new favorite of mine I easily got lost inside the story I loved the characters and the description of the town The author drew me in and made me want to live there and get to know each of these characters Great book

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Like her other previous books,i found the writting is too draging Way too much Over the top ridicilous So many layers and plots topple into a giant mess And the stalking thing is just so FSOG Where is the originality And the stalking plot is so ridicilous Why not called police, takes legal action, have better security etc I mean Logan is super star right He can not afford security for the love of his life Instead the author just go round and round with all of the drama of stalker Like her other previous books,i found the writting is too draging Way too much Over the top ridicilous So many layers and plots topple into a giant mess And the stalking thing is just so FSOG Where is the originality And the stalking plot is so ridicilous Why not called police, takes legal action, have better security etc I mean Logan is super star right He can not afford security for the love of his life Instead the author just go round and round with all of the drama of stalker attempting murder to saffron I also does not get the chemistry between saffron and logan In short, not a pleasurable reading 2 stars

    I d like to start this review by stating that I loved this author s Beautifully Damaged series.As far as Waiting for the One is concerned, I should have thrown in the towel when I struggled to get through this and still had 2.5 hours of listening left Ah, hindsight This actually started off in a very promising manner, but once the female and male lead started talking to each other after maybe 15 or 20% , it went downhill quickly, and unfortunately, it continued to do so till the end.I think I I d like to start this review by stating that I loved this author s Beautifully Damaged series.As far as Waiting for the One is concerned, I should have thrown in the towel when I struggled to get through this and still had 2.5 hours of listening left Ah, hindsight This actually started off in a very promising manner, but once the female and male lead started talking to each other after maybe 15 or 20% , it went downhill quickly, and unfortunately, it continued to do so till the end.I think I would have enjoyed this story a lotif the author had focused on one or two dramatic events and had then chosen to develop those indetail As it was, this felt like there was a never ending succession of mildly dramatic instances but each and everyone was simply resolved in the blink of an eyethan once by the male protagonist simply leavingwhich leads me to the last 25% of the book which was just over the top silly Sorry.There was a lot of potential here some of the side characters were lovely and the small town Maine setting was great But overall, the story was too drawn out, felt disjointed because of the time jumps, and became far too melodramatic and unbelievable towards the end.I would, however, encourage anybody who enjoys contemporary romances to check out Beautifully Damaged by L.A Fiore 1.5 stars rounded up because I finished it

    4.25 Swordfish StarsOR4.25 Undercover StarsEver think you see someone famous in a crowd Like Ooo..is that _____ That might actually happen to you if you live in a NYC but out here in The Suburbs, Tx, that rarely happens This book will give you hope of seeing a David Gandy at the Piggly Wiggly It could happen.Saffron great name lives a small town She bartends She is involved in the community She has great friends What she doesn t have is a lot of dates Even though she lives by the 4.25 Swordfish StarsOR4.25 Undercover StarsEver think you see someone famous in a crowd Like Ooo..is that _____ That might actually happen to you if you live in a NYC but out here in The Suburbs, Tx, that rarely happens This book will give you hope of seeing a David Gandy at the Piggly Wiggly It could happen.Saffron great name lives a small town She bartends She is involved in the community She has great friends What she doesn t have is a lot of dates Even though she lives by the ocean, there are not a lot of fish in her sea Small town means a small dating pool I haven t had a date since man first discovered fire.But she isn t ready to give up hope.He s out there, somewhere, maybe trapped under a truck or surrounded by feral wolves, which is what s taking him so long to get to me.Logan is new guy in town He doesn t talk to Saffron He talks to other people Just not her He just observes With his really beautiful eyes Words can be overrated You can learn a great deal about someone just from watching them.When Logan and Saffron finally break the ice, it breaks with a bang Or rather a splat A splat of pastry Laced with fish Saffron learns that Logan is in hiding Hiding from a life in the spotlight A life that was draining him But is he really interested in her or just interested in having something to do while waiting to get back to his real life And that killing time could be killing them both There are forces that want Logan back in his old life And want Saffron out of the picture I really liked this one It s my first LA Fiore It was a great balance of funny characters, sweet family moments and a super sexy love story There are movies in pjs, heartbreaking goodbyes, wonderful friends, threats with utensils, sweet letters from the past and a faith the future even when no one else agrees with you In this world, all I want is you.And who won t look into crowds all day to find that

    Just a tad unrealisticI liked the story, but it all was just unrealistic I never really felt the connection between Logan and Saffron I was right along with the tabloids in what would he see in her Plus she was a bartender that after she met Logan never went to work and could afford a house She took extended breaks from work too.Good storyline, but I guess in fiction land anything is possible.

    Dnf 42%This started really well with her quirkyness and his strong and silent hotness but they got together super fast and it s been dramarama all the way since I m not interested enough to read anyand the drama feels forced to me Shame but there you go.
