Waiting For You by Shey Stahl {Book Review}


{About the Book}

Bailey Gray is tired of her perfectly planned life. Everything about her life has been organized and lived out to the expectations set of her parents. She is the class valedictorian, has perfect grades, the perfect friends, a perfect boyfriend, basically perfect life...or so everyone thought. That's when she realizes the path planned isn't always the path chosen.
 
On graduation day she makes a decision. One that changes everything she thought she knew about her intended future.


On a whim, she runs away with the town rebel, Dylan Wade, in search of the unknown.


Dylan Wade isn't looking to run away from anything.


He knows what he wants as he's been waiting on it for years.


On a journey to find the unknown, they discover a friendship they once knew along the open highway and have not a care in the world. Between the yellow and white lines of the heated summer asphalt, a spark draws them together as Dylan's past and Bailey future try to ripe them apart. 


Could it be that Dylan and his GTO are exactly what her perfectly planned life needs?


This book contains adult language and sexual situations. Not suitable for anyone under eighteen.

{My thoughts}
Have you ever felt so much pressure you just wanted to run away from it all? Bailey Gray has and she does. Lucky for her she picks a really hot guy to run away with. Dylan has been her next door neighbor for years and as they grew up they drifted apart. But there was always a little part of Bailey that stayed attached to Dylan, no matter how different their lives were. So on graduation day when she has the chance to leave with him...she takes that chance. From there the story goes off! It was awesome! 

I get very involved with my characters' feelings as I read a book and this one really put me through the wringer. Woooo boy. I will openly admit to getting a bit giggly, blushing a lot, and feeling like my heart was going to break. 

Bailey's naivety and Dylan's bad boy musician persona is so appealing. Stahl really knew what she was doing when she created these folks!

These are the best kinds of books. You have an emotional attachment to the people and you wish the best for them but you really don't know what's going to happen. Will they get their happily ever after or will it all come crashing down around them when secrets are revealed?

You can purchase a copy of Waiting for You on Amazon for only $2.99.
