Waiting For You – Claudia Connor



Claudia Connor is pretty much the only author that I read who writes sweet romances. And she excels at writing the best single parent romances available. Her debut novel Worth the Fall is still one of my all time favorite novels ever.

Because the way she writes swoony alpha heroes around kids is ADDICTING and ADORABLE!!

From swoony hero to adorable baby boy, to hardworking mother – Waiting for You was the perfect novel that gave me all the sweet, fluffy and light hearted feel I was hoping for.

If you love any of the above – you’ll adore this novel.

The author truly knows how to write a hero that melts your heart. These big strapping alpha male turned mush when he was around his woman and in close proximity to her baby boy. And I couldn’t get enough of it.

The story worked with its simple and straight forward formula. A commitment phope, and perpetual single guy falling hard for a single mom. This successful formula checks all my boxes. The author reliably delivers storylines with endearing and charming family gatherings, and wonderful scenes between family members. There is always lots of female support and good natured ribbing between the guys. A truly feel good novel, that should be on anyone’s reading list.

There was just one aspect I thought the author let fall through the gaps. There was this one firefighter Riley, who was mentioned all the time until chapter 16 when he suddenly fell off the grid. He had a kind of important role to play, and Zach had a major reaction to a situation that involved Riley, but the author never resolved the issue, never mentioned what happened to Riley, it left this huge hole in the story. It was noticeable and a little jarring.

But besides that Waiting for You was a wonderful addition to the McKinney/Walker Brothers series and a solid performance by the author.

Waiting For You - Claudia ConnorWhen 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?
