Jennifer L. Armentrout, New York Times best-selling author of the Wait for You series, delivers a new novel of first love, second chances, and scorching chemistry between an artistic bartender and the tough, sexy cop who's determined to win her.
Roxy's loved Reece Anders since she was 15, so when the straitlaced cop finally surrendered to a steamy encounter years later, Roxy hoped he'd fall for her, too. He didn't. Or that's what she's always believed. But then Reece storms back into her life when the man who injured her childhood friend is out of prison and wanting to make amends - something Roxy cannot do.
The last thing she wants is to go there with Reece again, but he's determined to prove to her that he's exactly what she needs. Especially when a sick creep starts messing with her. But what's more dangerous to Roxy - a psycho after her or the past that refuses to let go and allow her to open up her heart again?

I have enjoyed this series immensely and am very hopeful that this is not the end of it. The story of Roxy and Reese is quite lovely, sensual and exciting. The writing is superb...weaving together intrigue, suspense, romance and humor with exquisite sensitivity. The story is well developed, the characters are ones we've met before...so it's like meeting old friends. Some of the characters most definitely stay with you and become hopeful focus of future novels--although, I'm not sure Katy deserves a whole book because she is just such a hilarious character. On the other hand, it might be nice to see her with her depth explored. Nevertheless, this book is about two scarred (and scared) people who fight their way to and from each other until they finally connect. Once connected, there is no separation. Listen to it and enjoy Sophie Eastlake's superb narration...as always, she nails every character and situation.
I chose the 5 star rating because #1 the story kept my attention and couldn't figure out the "bad guy" #2 the live story was believable and not too far out there #3 the narrator was smooth and had a very nice voice throughout the entire 10 hour story.
I look forward to listening to more stories by this author in my future.
Jennifer Armentrout is just pure magic. Her characters come alive and I almost feel like I am part of this group of friends in this series. This is Roxy's story, the bartender from the previous book. I love that each of the characters have their own complicated back story and that each character appears in each book so we get to see a little peek into what they are doing now after their books. I am getting carried away here, but if you listen to this series you will completely understand! Well worth a credit and maybe two!
Audiobook Addict, yep that is me. There is a group of us! Check us out on FB. >:-)
This is only the second book I have ever pre ordered and I am so glad I did. I love this series, I mean come on Cam just did it for me and I wanted more so I got sucked in to book 2 and 3 just for him and of course you end up just falling just as hard for the Jase and Jax. So it was no surprise to me that Reece is just as dreamy as the other boys. I have to say this subject matter gives me the willies but it's an eye opener too and so glad it turned out the way it did. This is me not giving away anything. 😉
P.S. So glad we got to have a few clips of the gang I do miss Ollie and Brit though.
I absolutely loved this book. Love the series and I am a big fan of the narrator Sophie Eastlake . She has a great way of creating different voices for each character .
Hi! I'm from South Alabama. I love to hike and hunt I am always in a book and love dystopian novels and new young adult.
Yes!! I have listened to it twice already!
How real it is. I LOVE this author and how her writing is so beautifully expressed. This one felt like such a thriller/mystery. I though I knew who the mystery person was in the story but man oh man.
Her amazing voice. She acts out each character amazingly. Like I don't even want two voices in a story if she is reading because she expresses what you need to feel in such a way. Its an art.
I was creeped out and paranoid. I was delightedly thrilled and heartbroken others. I wanted to throw my phone once or twice. lol.
This is the 5th book in JLA's series Wait for You. Reece and Roxy are both amazing and can I just take a moment to say how hot Reece is.
Roxy is an artist and takes classes at a community college-but you never really see her in this area but she does go to school- and works at a bar with a character we all know already, Jax. Her best friend, Charlie, was horribly injured years before but we get to see the softer side of her because she has visited him and painted him a picture every friday since the accident. It really makes you have feels and makes you love Roxy so much more because you see how devoted she is and how protective she is. She has also been in love with the same man since she was 15, can you guess who? Reece of course! She was easy to like and relate to. But she kinda did speed date with alot of the wrong kind of guys but other than that she is great!
Reece. Oh Reece, he is the perfect fictional crush, super sexy alpha cop thing going on. He is out of the Marines and is now a cop in the same town Roxy lives in. He and Roxy were best friends for a while until 11 months ago. When something happened, but didn't really happen, destroyed their friendship and only one of them knows the truth. Now everything is upsidedown and mixed up and they both want to fix what happened but it isn't going how they planned. Roxy has got some serious stuff happening with her best friend and the person involved in what happened to him and some way creepy stuff happening at home that would have us all thinking we've gone crazy! But the creepy turns into dangerous and her security is endangered and Reid decides to protect her and show her what he really wants.
Roxy and Reece have some amazing chemistry going on and the beginning is so fun to watch with all the push and pull and trying to figure stuff out. Then it turned from fun to really hot as things progressed. This is an amazing addition to the series and I LOVE that I got to see how all our favorites from previous books are doing. This is an amazing story and will give you chills sometimes, make you laugh, cry, wanna scream and giggle uncontrollably. I love this book and have listened to it twice already! An added bonus that I truely enjoyed in this particular book was the artistic way Roxy saw things. The way she would describe something. She would imagine what colors to mix to create the perfect shade of blue for Reece's eyes and she did this alot for several things and it made the story hers. I love how she saw everything artistically and that JLA really got it right on the head.
Jennifer L. Armentrout is my kind of funny. If you like her sense of humor, you will like all her books. She writes it all, from YA, fantasy, to romance. She has become my favorite author of all times because her books aren't heavy and always have a happily ever after....
I have read multiple books by this author and I continue to do so because of the strength of the female characters. This book was no different there were many ways the book strayed from the typical romantic plot including the fact that the best friend is in assisted living. There continues to be many WTF moments until the last chapter. It's worth sticking around to see what happens.
I would recommend the hot sex scenes as well!
