I haven’t read a good romance novel since my (early) twenties.  Back in the day of Mills & Boone and Fabio covers.  A buddy I met in the blogging world, Alfonzo Words, got me into this book.  I thought to myself, why not?  I have not picked up anything other than serious reading material in about a decade but I thought I’d give light reading a try.  The pre-launch hype was getting real and got me all excited. So, release day comes and I hop onto Amazon to get my copy for Kindle. There I was ready for light reading…and BAM! She hits me.  I. Could. Not. Put. That. Smartphone. Down.  This was anything but light reading. 


The story of Audrey and Adam had me hooked from start to finish. We look at Audrey.  A young woman who has overcome much in life yet doesn’t know the strength she truly possesses.  Then we look at Adam.  A young man who has had to prove himself to what he thought was the world around him…but really he had to prove himself to himself.


Melissa Kate has a lovely voice in this book that just eases one into the story.  Drawing one deeper and deeper into the lives of these two people. This is not just a boy meets girl kind of book.  Instead there is a real story line that makes for great reading (and maybe a great movie script).  It is honest writing with sincere characters.


Thank you Melissa Kate for a fantastic read.  I cannot wait for your next novel.

Look out for “Love in the Fast Lane” set for release on November 8th 2016.

Go ahead and read “Waiting For You” while you wait for the next arrival.
