WAIT FOR IT follows Annabelle and Nick. Annabelle is twice divorced with a messy relationship with her ex. When her best friend offers her a job in Arizona, it seems the perfect time to leave behind a cold winter for warmer temperatures. The job seems ideal and her friend sets up her up to lease a guest house for six months to give Arizona a shot. Unfortunately not everyone is happy to have her as the new creative director and her new landlord is reclusive but not shy with delivering a lot of rules about how she may make use of her new home.
Nick is the landlord and he’s had a rough time of it. He suffered a stroke and is still dealing with the after effects that leave him lacking confidence in his ability to do most things on his own. He has a fantastic support network, but he expected to be fully recovered by now and the doctors can’t figure out where his lingering weakness is coming from. His new tenant is someone he feels obligated to take in, but she’s flaunting all of his rules and pushing him out of his comfort zone.
This book was a lot of fun to read. There’s a horrible enemy at work that you can love to hate, a contentious relationship between the two mains which brings out a lot of humor and chemistry, and several other fun relationships that develop along the way. It takes a close look at anxiety and both physical and mental illness as well.
This book had a lot of interesting characters with layers to delve into and good humor along the way. It is well worth adding to your TBR! WAIT FOR IT is out on 8/10/2021!!
