Graphic designer Annabelle, 28 and twice divorced, moves to Arizona for a fresh start. Apart from facing workplace issues, Annabelle also deals with her grumpy, retired landlord Nick who communicates- more likely reminds her of the house rules that she has to follow- via notes.
📜Annabelle is a rebel. She likes taking care of people even when it becomes overbearing but her heart is always is the right place. I loved how she stood up for herself against that jerk Carson, even though she felt like punching him.
📄Nick, who is dealing with his trauma post his stroke has given up on world. He lives a grounded life surrounding himself with 3 of his staff members and confined to his house. Having his perspective chapters was really nice.
📜I loved the back & forth notes. These two hotheads don't meet until almost half way through the book, but that doesn't dim their snarky banter. I loved those hilarious notes from Nick especially where he mentions the exact page, para & line number 😆. Their first meeting was epic leading to a disaster. Nick went from being grumpy to hot in a mini second. Amidst those desert dates, granting visitors visa to Sir, working on a project together they fell for each other. All those tragic circumstances helped them heal together & also as an individual.
Ps loved those secondary characters to the core. Pss When Annabelle mentioned Paris is Always a Good Idea, I might or might not have teared up during that as it took me back to Chelsea's story 💙.
Annabelle moves to Phoenix and leaves behind two Ex-husbands and the cold. She has accepted a job working for her BFF’s graphic design firm. She hits the ground running at the firm, and soon realizes she is being sabotaged by one of her employees. She becomes known for her ability to provide exactly what the customer wants. She is living on the grounds of a large mansion, and has been told NOT to bother her landlord and is led to believe he is older and a hermit. All the characters are believable, even those you don’t like. The plot might be a little far-fetched as far as the timeline, but it’s a good story despite that. I recommend this book to anyone who likes romance and adult women’s fiction.
Annabelle has been married twice before, before the age thirty, and when her ex husband tries to re-propose, Annabelle accepts a job with her best friend in a different state.
Nick Daire, a home improvement builder, suffered from a stroke nine months back and has been having a hard time readjusting his life with the long term effects: depression, panic attacks, and distancing himself from making new relationships.
Annabelle arrives in Arizona to live on Nick's property, in a guest house, and is given a strict list of rules to follow while living there. Annabelle and Nick communicate through notes at first until she gets frustrated and finally meets the man behind the notes.
I adore the romance between the two characters. It was sweet, steamy, and fun to read, especially from both POVs. I thought Nick's recovery felt realistic and understandable. I did like reading his chapters more than Annabelle's just because she was dealing with a difficult co-worker at her new job and at times the guy was just so petty to read about. The guy was trying to get Annabelle fired because he thought he deserved the job more.
There was a small side story with the best friend and her husband, they were having marriage issues but it was just glossed over. With how "close" Annabelle was supposed to be with her friend I thought she would have more screen time but she was barely there and felt irrelevant to the story.
The story focused on the romance and the developing relationship between Annabelle and Nick, and Nick's backstory. There was also some backstory about her marriages and the loss of her mother but not as much as Nick's.
Overall I did enjoy the book and the writing. I would recommend Wait For It as a beach read.
I enjoyed this book about a transplanted New Englander in Phoenix. She's an artist and the hero is a successful entrepreneur who had a stroke at age 36. There's A stray cat, A long lost sister, two ex husbands and an unpleasant co-worker.
