Synopsis

Do you believe love can transcend time?

It’s only been a week, but Justin is miserable waiting for Lucy to contact him. He’s back in London for Indigo’s concert series and needs to get his head in the game, but his heart is back in America.

Stuck hiding out at her parents’ house in Los Angeles, Lucy is consumed with doubt and regret about her decision to stay behind.

When the Varangian Cross is sold to a private buyer in London, Lucy jumps at the chance to deliver the cross to the new owner and maybe reconnect with Justin.

Lucy arrives in London in time for another roadblock to their relationship: a serious allegation has been made against Justin, and the paparazzi are in overdrive, forcing Justin under cover just to make it through the concert series.

Finally reunited, their passion is renewed. But their nightmares have returned and are feeling more like memories than dreams. It’s time to find out the truth behind their connection.

Waiting for You is the second book of a contemporary romance trilogy.

Note to Readers: This book contains scenes which may be triggering to survivors of sexual violence.


Review

This book was provided by the author through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Kate McBrien and Netgalley!

Waiting For You is the second book in the Indigo Trilogy and continues Lucy and Justin’s story.

Just like the first book, Waiting for You begins with a prologue from centuries ago about a woman and a man who are in love with each other. It’s like a ‘next chapter’ for the prologue from the first book. I really liked that Kate McBrien did this because the prologue was really intriguing and I wanted to know more.

Something I also really liked about Waiting for You, is that there were some more paranormal aspects such as more dreams, certain feelings, psychics, … I really missed that in the first book because we only had the prologue, a few dreams and the mention of the cross. It felt like the author put a bit more effort in connecting the prologue with the story of Lucy and Justin.

When I compare Lucy and Justin to the first book, I really think that there was some character development. Lucy is a bit more confident and brave and Justin has changed as well. I think that this is a good thing because a story can be great, but the book in general can suck when there’s no character development.

I liked the story is general, but just like the first book, the writing bothered me a bit. I think that it often felt rushed or like the book wasn’t properly edited. I think I would’ve enjoyed this book more if it were written differently. However, I still look forward to the third book, Always With You.
