Waiting on You: Blue Heron, Book 3 | [Kristan Higgins]

Waiting on You: Blue Heron, Book 3

Colleen O'Rourke is in love with love…just not when it comes to herself. Most nights, she can be found behind the bar at the Manningsport, New York, tavern she owns with her twin brother, doling out romantic advice to the lovelorn, mixing martinis, and staying more or less happily single. Ten years ago Lucas Campbell, her first love, broke her heart - an experience Colleen doesn't want to have again, thank you very much. Since then, she's been happy with a fling here and there, some elite-level flirting, and playing matchmaker to her friends. But a family emergency has brought Lucas back to town....

Publisher's Summary

Does being nobody's fool mean that you're nobody's love?

Colleen O'Rourke is in love with love…just not when it comes to herself. Most nights, she can be found behind the bar at the Manningsport, New York, tavern she owns with her twin brother, doling out romantic advice to the lovelorn, mixing martinis, and staying more or less happily single. Ten years ago Lucas Campbell, her first love, broke her heart - an experience Colleen doesn't want to have again, thank you very much. Since then, she's been happy with a fling here and there, some elite-level flirting, and playing matchmaker to her friends.

But a family emergency has brought Lucas back to town, handsome as ever and still the only man who's ever been able to crack her defenses. Seems like maybe they've got some unfinished business waiting for them, but to find out, Colleen has to let her guard down or risk losing a second chance with the only man she's ever loved.

    "Good story but enuf w/the 'special plcs'-Really?"

    This is a great story but the author overuses "special places" & sphincter. I mean--Really???? A bit juvenile. She's also redundant with some words within just a few sentences of each other & then hardly use the word again. But I really liked the story line. Just drop the silly stuff--over trying to be quirky. The narrator is excellent. Great accents & you can always tell a difference in the characters. I will read Book 4, however, despite any issues I have the extras.

    Story
    "Least favorite in the series so far"

    I normally love KH's books, reading or listening to them more than once, but I really didn't get into this book as much. I think it was because I wasn't invested in the heroine, Colleen, - I really didn't like her. She slept around too much, despite the fact that she keeps telling herself that she really didn't sleep with as many guys as everyone thought she did. This comes back to haunt her later on in the story. Lucas, the hero, wasn't any more likeable. He claimed to love Colleen, but then ran off and married the rich girl and stayed with her claiming to love her for four years for reasons I won't go into as they will spoil the story. All the flashbacks didn't complete the whole picture of what happened to these two until the middle of the story.

    On the other hand, some of the peripheral characters were funny and lovable, while others were just plain detestable. There are some really funny moments in this book and I wish it had pictures so I could see what the Chicken Princess' sneed (sp?) looked like. Kristen Higgins' books are always well written. The first two books are wonderful in this series, so if you haven't read them, treat yourself to those books and skip this one.

    Story
    "I have mixed feelings about this one!"

    Story begins with a high school romance and first time love for both Lucas and Colleen. After high school, Lucas leaves for college and they keep a long distance relationship but then they separate due to misunderstandings and unmet expectations. Lucas ends up having a one night stand after he believe she has moved on and ends up impregnating the girl after their one and only sexual encounter. He marries her but she leaves him after eight years. Two years later his uncle who raised him finds himself dying from cancer and asks Lucas to go back and be around him for his last days and to help his cousin settle before his father passes away.

    I liked the book but also found it unsatisfying at the same time. She is supposed to be so mature and good at guiding others through their relationship issues and yet she has a childish and immature side to her equally as strong. Lucas could not make up his mind about what he really wanted out of his relationship with Colleen even the second time around. Colleen was initially very mad at him and still resentful but then seeing how sexually irresistible he was decided to shag him anyway knowing she would get hurt when he left for Chicago. hmmm. But then we get the bomb dropped on us. The book went from describing Colleen as someone who had sporadic sex encounters to being the town slut and well known for it. HUH????. How did that happen? I am not saying she should not be having fun but from what we hear throughout the book to what is sprung on us toward the end is a BIIIIGGGG stretch. Wow. I did not like that turn of events again not because I am being judgmental but because it almost seemed forced and an after thought to get the story going.

    Another part I did not like about the book was that he never told Colleen he loved her and yet was supposedly in love with her but then did not leave his wife after the miscarriage and WAS able to tell her he loved her while he was still in love with Colleen. SOOOOO confusing and stupidly complicated.

    So I'd say save your credits for something better. Not a bad story but not great either.

    "Not enjoying this"
    Would you try another book from Kristan Higgins and/or Amy Rubinate?

    I most likely would not try another Kristan Higgins book. I was less than enthralled with her storyline and characters. By the time I got to Chapter 13, I realized that I no longer cared about her characters and that the story was silly.


    What was most disappointing about Kristan Higgins’s story?

    Ms. Higgins' characters were hard to connect with. The dialogue was stilted or raunchy, but didn't feel real.

    Yes, because it was a really enjoyable book, and a good narrator. Good strong characters, good strong writing. Higgins is one of my favorite romance authors!

    This whole series just keeps getting better with each book. Every character is strong and the story is never boring! It has funny parts and heart breaking parts.

    Loved Colleen.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Kristan always makes me laugh and make me cry. Her writing just touches me.

    I love Kristan Higgins style of writing. She is smart, witty, and laugh out loud funny. I wish Audible would carry more of her books. I love the Blue Heron series. You can't ever go wrong with Kristan Higgins!

    "Kristan Higgins/ Amy Rubinate = Great"
    Would you listen to Waiting on You again? Why?

    This is a wonderful series, I would highly recommend it.


    What other book might you compare Waiting on You to and why?

    I usually don't compare one author to another.


    What about Amy Rubinate’s performance did you like?

    Amy Rubinate's performance absolutely made this series.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed so hard in places that I had to explain it to those that couldn't hear it, and I cried toward the end. It is a great series of books, please listen!!

    Story
    "Not her best but book one in this series rocked!"
    If you could sum up Waiting on You in three words, what would they be?

    Too much stalling.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Kristan Higgins? Why or why not?

    Always, this is a consist author.


    What does Amy Rubinate bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does great voices. I love her Mrs. J.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it wasn't that engrossing.


    Any additional comments?

    Cute situations but too much stalling on the relationship and the matchmaking was at times was an unnecessary distraction from the base story. IMHO, her dog didn't get as much FaceTime in this book as others have had in the past. She writes great stories about animal love i.e. Catch of the Day, her best work. :)
