You grow up with Shelby in Waiting for Us but until you get to her story, she’s a bit of an enigma. She is definitely a colorful character. She’s sarcastic, witty, self-diagnosed as bitchy, fun, and intriguing. Sure she’s been badly burned by love in the past but her friend Jeff steps up and they have fun. But it’s when she literally bumps into the strong and silent Professor Garrett Hanlon before class one morning that you see the passionate, raw, and emotional side of Shelby. Their chemistry is instantaneous and undeniably hot!
Garrett is not your typical professor. He’s young, built, and a take charge man. He goes for what he wants and what he wants is Shelby. She can’t get him or his body-numbing kisses out of her head and he can’t stop stealing her away for private rendezvous the second no one pays attention to them. Their taboo affair turns steamier, becomes more intense, and more all-consuming as the school year continues on. That is until one day Shelby returns home and her world crashes and crumbles around her.
Jeff Walsh, what a man! Initially I didn’t know what to make of him but as the story unfolded, you find out that he is a savior, a man who loves with his whole heart, and he will do anything to protect the ones he loves. I loved how my heart felt heavy and cried as he was dismissed by Shelby, the girl he’s loved from the moment he sees her, for Garrett. He only got her body, but Garrett got her heart. Now? A few years after picking up the shattered pieces of Shelby’s broken heart, Jeff can finally say he won. He got the girl of his dreams, they’re planning a wedding, their future is looking up, and they’ve got the jobs of a lifetime. And their burning, impassioned attraction? Have a fan ready, because it is H.O.T!
When Shelby starts her new job, the past comes back to bite her in her delicate little derriere. As she deals with the fallout that Garrett left behind and the future Jeff has planned for them, Shelby must decide what is best for her. Does she stay with Jeff, the man who brought her back from hell; the man who loves her more than anything; the man who harbors secrets of the past? Or does she return to Garrett, the man who still owns a piece of her heart; the man who consumed her day in and day out; the man who left her broken and shattered?
Dawn has yet another unbelievably heart gripping, emotionally devouring, and powerful hit on her hands. With a cliffhanger that will completely blow your mind away, you will not want to put this book down at all! I can’t believe this is the end for now but guarantee that I will be first in line to read the next installment of Shelby, Jeff and Garrett.
Rating: # 5 stars out of 5
This is the second book of The Waiting Series. No you don’t need to read book one, Waiting for Us, to understand what is going on. However, I highly recommend reading book one. It will give you background on these characters. The book overlaps the timeframe of Waiting for Love. Shelby and Hailey have been best friends since forever. In this series we watch them grow up and fall in and out of love. Shelby is in her junior year of college. It is the first day of the new semester and Shelby runs smack into her new, very hot creative writing professor. In that moment, Professor Garrett Hanlon has sparked something deep in Shelby’s soul.
Garrett, is speechless after gazing on the amazing beauty that has just run into him. In class, watching her, he become jealous of the obvious friendship that she has with the man sitting with her. Although he knows he shouldn’t, he pursues a relationship with Shelby. Jeff has become one of Shelby’s best friends and they share a friends with benefits relationship. They mesh, they have fun, and the sex is great, but Shelby is not looking for anything more. She has been in love once before and that left her shattered when the relationship ended abruptly before heading off to separate colleges. With Garrett’s relentless pursuit, Shelby finally relents. She can’t resist the pull that she has towards Garrett. Garrett is all consuming, but their relationship may be doomed from the beginning. Being involved with a student is against the rules.
The plot of this story is super sexy, has drama with much needed comic relief. The chemistry between these characters makes for a very steamy read, and is the cause of all the drama. Pacing is steady, at the beginning of each chapter you know where is time the book is. This book spans several years. The ending, well I was not expecting a cliffhanger, since book one ended as a stand alone. I guess we will have to wait till April, 2016 to find out what happens.

Shelby has a steadfast friend named Jeff. He’s a hot, college quarterback who is also her no-strings-attached lover. It’s an arrangement to which they’ve both agreed. He’s a guy who would do pretty much anything for her, and maybe even do too much, cross a line he shouldn’t ... You’ll have to read it to find out what I’m referring to, because I don’t do spoilers.
Then there’s Garrett, her creative writing professor, who literally runs into her in the hallway the first day of class. Their mutual attraction is instant and not to be denied for long. He’s older, demanding, and knows what he wants: Shelby. And she struggles with the choice that is soon in front of her: continue the easy friends-with-benefits relationship with Jeff? Who, she finds, wants more than she realized. Or fly under the radar in a risky relationship with her sexy, unrelenting professor, Garrett Hanlon? Can she trust either man with her heart?
I promise this well-drawn story will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions where you think you know the motivations of the players, only to find out you were wrong all along. Then, you will be met with unexpected, heart wrenching twists that will feel like a gut punch and not only leave you wondering what Shelby will do, but will also have you marking your calendar for the April release of Waiting for Him!
I highly recommend this series and encourage you to start with book one!
Side note: Although I mentioned Waiting for Us, Waiting for Love can be read as a stand alone, but if you want to see a younger version of Shelby, pick up book one.
Shelby is in her junior year of college when she meets Garrett who turns out to be her creative writing professor... her very HOT professor. From the very first meeting something strikes Shelby's soul and Garrett embeds himself into Shelby.
Garret, although knowing that he shouldn't cross any lines with Shelby, because she is his student, finds himself longing for her just as much as she is for him. He also becomes jealous of the obvious connection she shares with Jeff even though they are just friends...
Friends with benefits that is.
Jeff and Shelby get along well and have good chemistry. There is a fun side to their friendship and then there is a steamy side. Unfortunately for Jeff though, Shelby isn't looking for anything more though because she had her heart broken in the past.
Garrett decides to break all the rules and pursue Shelby and Shelby just cannot resist what Garrett is offering. The taboo affair that Shelby and Garrett find themselves in is all consuming and very intense.
I don't want to give too much away, but of course when the rules are broken, someone is bound to get hurt right?
Stanton leaves readers with a surprisingly shocking cliffhanger. I have to say that I wasn't expecting that at all considering that book one, Waiting for Us, was a stand alone, but now I NEED the next installment of this book in my hands ASAP.
A sexy read that mixes drama with humor, Waiting for Love, has all the right chemistry and secrets lying in wait.
Who doesn't love a little bit of a taboo romance these days and Stanton delivers just that. Told in dual pov in two parts, we get to follow Shelby as she encounters Professor Hanlon on her first day of class and the growing attraction that they have for one another. I loved how Shelby could give back with her crazy banter. Her character is head strong and out spoken and I loved that. She puts Garrett in his place on numerous occasions. Just when they are ready to take their hidden relationship to the next level, the rug is pulled out from under them.
Garrett Hanlon has been through hell. When he catches a glimpse of Shelby he feels an undeniable pull toward her and sets out to make her his. The consequences be damned. What ensues is a roller coaster ride of a hot, sexy, love story that ends all to quickly. Garrett is a dominant, possessive man and the mouth on him could wet just about anyone's panties. Will he be strong enough to weather the storms that are brewing or will he tuck tail and run?
Jeff Walsh is Shelby's best friend with benefits. What she doesn't know is that he is in love with her and wants to make her his. He quietly stands by and watches as the one woman he desires more than anything it taken away from him. When Jeff takes matters into his own hands, things spiral out of control quickly. Can he be the one to pick up the pieces and prove that he is the man for Shelby or will the secrets and deception ruin it all in the end?
Go grab your copy of this crazy emotional roller coaster ride of a romance. Filled with plenty of hot, sexy moments, a mouthy, sexy professor, the gorgeous college quarterback, secrets and betrayal that not everyone may come back from!
