ABOUT: When ER nurse Nora Sellers is hurt in a hospital scuffle, firefighter Zach Walker blames himself. Blaming himself is nothing new. He’s been blaming himself for years for the trauma his baby sister endured as a teenager. Though with his happy–go–lucky attitude no one would know it. He’s good at his job, he’s a good brother, and a good friend, but Zach decided long ago he wasn’t husband and father material.
Even so, when Zach learns Nora is a single mother with a house that needs his help, he can’t walk away. After a few days with Nora and her ten month old son, he knows he doesn’t want to.
But Nora’s wary. She learned at a young age that the only person she can count on is herself. Now with a baby, a job, and a fixer–upper house, the last thing Nora wants is a sexy firefighter, making her heart flutter. But Zach is more than what he seems, and the more she gets to know him the harder he is to resist.
She’s been brave all her life. Can she be brave one more time and take a chance of a lifetime with her heart?
My Review: Waiting For You was a quick and super sweet story!
Nora and Zach make a very cute couple. Their attraction is instant and budding romance steamy slow burn. I liked learning more about both characters and what they want in life. Both have pasts that have left them feeling alone, undeserving of love or not good enough. As great as their chemistry was, they struggled at times being with each other because it resembled something they didn’t think or know they could have.
I also adore Will! He is the cutest baby ever and he has the best mom ever. I loved how good Zach was with him.
Waiting For You is the first book by Claudia Connor that I’ve read and I really enjoyed it. The story was great and suspenseful. The characters were likable and endearing. And the romance was utterly sweet. I look forward to reading more by this author.
