Worth the Wait (by Jamie Beck)

Contemporary Romance

When Vivi travels with her closest friend Cat to Block Island she’s expecting a relaxing holiday and a chance to catch up with Cat’s brother David, who she has loved since she was thirteen. But almost immediately she learns that David has a girlfriend and he’s brought her along.

She’s determined to salvage her pride and make the most of her time on the island. But it’s not so easy to brush off a decade of love and making matters worse, David is sending her mixed signals.


 
Worth the Wait is great. If I have a criticism it’s only one. I think there is just a little too much going on in the book. The story of Cat and her troubled relationship, as well as Jackson and Hank didn’t quite fit and were a bit of a distraction.

Having said that, I all but abandoned Contemporary Romance a year or two ago –– the genre felt dated and most of the books I was reading felt recycled, but there are a few authors right now who are delivering fresh and exciting stories and bringing me back. Jamie Beck is one of those authors.
