Three years after the worst moment of her life—walking in on her husband in the midst of cheating—Kimberly Morgan has put her life back together. Sure, she hasn't started dating again, but she has a great job as a social media expert ... until she doesn't. When her company abruptly goes belly-up, she watches her savings trickle away as she searches for new work.
While interviewing for a new company, she is recruited for another job: wife to an Australian businessman who needs to smooth over his immigration problems so he can focus on the task of making money, and an American wife who doesn't require wooing is just what he needs. He's drop-dead gorgeous and rich: What's not to like? But when the heart yearns for happily-ever-after, will a make-believe marriage be enough?
I’m a romantic at heart and thoroughly enjoy a Hallmark Move Channel weekend movie or a Drew Barrymore movie. I read Fifty Shades and enjoyed certain parts of it. That said, I am happy to give Waiting For You by Tracy Tegan 4.5 stars. There were parts of the story that made me blush, times I was cheering Kimberly on, and of course those moments where the reader can see the writing on the wall and you just want to shake the characters because they are acting foolishly. Each of Tegan’s characters was well written, Waiting For You was beautifully edited (a pet peeve I had with Fifty Shades by the way…because it seemed almost unedited), and just when I thought I had it all figured out, something new and exciting happened.
Waiting For You is a light read. I have been reading a lot of memoirs and manuals lately and this was a nice story to read while sipping coffee in the rocking chair on our porch. That’s usually how I feel about YA so I would say the book has been marketed well and placed in the appropriate genre.
Do I think I’ll be picking up Tegan’s other books from time to time? Sure.
Would I recommend Tegan’s work to others? If Fiction, Romance, and/or YA are their thing…absolutely!
I am so happy to have stumbled upon an author I hadn’t heard of before and reading Waiting For You was a pleasure.
Genre: Fiction/Romance/Young Adult
At heart Tracy Tegan is a storyteller and has been making up stories in her head or for her five wonderful nieces for as long as she can remember. With the encouragement from her family she finally decided to give life to some of the voices in her head and put paper to pen.
After spending the last seventeen years as a dot com strategy consultant, and professional blogger about relationships, dating and issues pertaining to gender equality, Tracy Tegan decided to put her knowledge of internet marketing to good use and self-publish her first novel.
The response has been better than expected with critical reviews like “A unique romance“, “Absolutely thrilling and adorable“, “Enjoyed it! A truly lovable love story“, “Absolutely Unforgivable is an absolute must read“, “Tracy Tegan’s `Absolutely Unforgivable’ is one of those romance stories that will sweep you off your feet within the first few pages and will not let you go until the very last page“, “It’s compelling, sexy, and in the end, deeply satisfying“, “This book was amazing, and you truly fall in love with all of the characters in the book“, “This book had everything, hot guys, rock bands, suspense, drama, everything! Love, Love, Loved it“.
While she admits she never expected to reach the New York Times best sellers list with her first book, she was more than thrilled with what she had accomplished in terms of sales and positive response to her writing and with that has already begun work on several new projects including a sequel to Absolutely Unforgivable which promises to shock and surprise readers by taking the story on a very unexpected twist and turn that fans of Billy Snow and Stacy Keller will never see coming.
