Publisher's Summary

Gentry Kane is a rock star I've been half in love with my whole life. And now he's my patient.

When Winter Waites knocks on the door to the snowy cabin where his next physical therapy patient awaits him, he has no idea his dream celebrity is on the other side. Gentry Kane is everything Winter has always fantasized about. 

But it was only a fantasy. What happens when Winter is faced with the flesh and blood man who wants more than physical therapy? Can one night in a cozy cabin lead to more? And how will that affect Winter's growing career in the tiny, charming town of Aster Valley?

Winter Waites is a 25,000-word stand-alone novella.

Lucy Lennox never disappoints

A sweet short steamy romance! Just what we need to introduce us to her new series. This author never disappoints me and Winter Waites is another 5 star hit.

Michael Dean kills the narration as always. Can’t get enough of him!

A sweet and short winter romance!

This was a sweet contemporary opposites attract romance.
It was a fairly quick listen and Michael Dean did an amazing audio delivery and narration.

The characters were likeable and sweet and the storyline was engaging.

Gentry and Winter were great together and the chemistry between them was intense and palpable.

If you like a sweet delicious morsel of holiday goodness do give this one a listen.

SWEET SHORT!!

A tender love story, with just the right touch of fiery passion! Engaging history leading up to a romantic HEA!! As always, Michael Dean did his usual sexy read! Thoroughly enjoyed this pocket-sized treasure. Looking forward to this great duo's next venture, "Right as Raine."

Latest New Series from Lucy! Each Book HEA!

So this is the prequel to the Aster Valley Series, the book has an HEA for it's characters, and, the characters from this book carry forward into book 1 of the Aster Valley Series, "Right as Raine" (which has it's own HEA) and into book 2 "Sweet As Honey" (it's own HEA) and into book 3 "Hot As Heller". Making Aster Valley a tight little community and a nice continuity to the series! Michael Dean brings the characters to life and Lucy's. steamy character hookups to a boil!

Love isn’t always planed!

It is a good story about how people lost faith about love and find it again! For some people may think the story is simple! But love is and will never be simple!

Great Prequel to a New Series

This was a fun listen, with great characters, an abundance of sweetness, charm, and chemistry. It’s everything I expect from this author. I cannot wait for the rest of the series. Michael Dean knocked it out of the park with these gentlemen. He’s always fun to listen to as he brings the story to life.

Winter and Gentry - I loved them

I just loved Winter and Gentry. They were both awkwardly perfect together and apart. This is a sweet sexy rockstar and normal fan fling turned into forever low angst novella. Michael Dean does a wonderful job narrating this love story. Gentry is the lead singer in a famous band. One concert he was drawn to a fan and ended up singing directly to him so he was disappointed when the fan left before the end of the concert. Disappointed enough to run out after him. Winter is a long time fan of Gentry and his band. He was so sorry to leave the concert but it was unavoidable. When Gentry is at a rented cabin in Aster Valley, he gets an appointment for a home PT visit for his injured hand and Winter is the therapist that arrives. The meet cute at the concert was the start of their HEA but the second meeting was almost as swoon worthy. This book has a little bit of everything - sweet moments, strong friendships, sexy times, real life issues, imperfect characters, and so much love. While short, the story was well written, the characters were well developed, and the storyline was engaging. I am definitely reading more of this series.

Meh....

It's bad cheesy, some funny dialogues but so random and the narrator sounds like a robot.
It's my goodbye from this author since I've realized her characters are empty and the plot is always lacking.

Excellent book which has been well written.

This book is very good, and well executed by Michael Dean. Will read again! Superb. Throughout the story you wonder what is going to be the outcome with regard to the two chaps!!

I wish I had liked it more

I would wish to have liked this more. It is a sweet short story, but it feels as though it fell off the production line.
Many authors might have tried to turn this into a full novel with the addition of an hundred pages of sex scenes. I thank the author for not doing that.
The reader has the exaggerated style that seems very popular at the moment. It is more like a dog pulling at the leash than the measured, masculine voice that I would prefer. I shall continue to search for books read by Shane East.

Stand alone Novella, but prequal to Right as Raine

Standalone Novella but
Winter Waites - A Prequel Novella to Right as Raine

Gentry Kane is a rock star, but likes to be on his own, until he sees a blonde guy in the audience of his latest concert.

This is a great short story, full of love, lust, money and debt. Well written, great narration and overall a really great read.

Cute and sweet

Winter Waites is a prequel novella to the Aster Valley series.

Gentry Kane is a famous musician an when he's in need of a physical therapist Winter comes face to face with his celebrity crush.

This is very much insta love vibes. It's low angst and very sweet/cute fluff. It's a short read to bridge into the Aster Valley world.
