Waiting on Forever Blog Tour


Parties, sororities and getting drunk.

Oh, yeah. And learning.

This may be true for most college students, but not for Leah Bennett. College life for her includes studying, working, and excelling in school. When it comes to the social ladder, Leah is at the bottom. Popular girls, hot guys and star athletes are of no importance to her, except for one.

Matthew Jacobs.

Matt is the starting wide receiver at SUNY Cortland, the most wanted guy on campus and Leah’s best friend. Although Leah’s feelings toward Matt run deeper than just a friendship, it is something she would never let be heard because the odds of someone like Matthew Jacobs going for someone like Leah Bennett are slim to none.

When Matt starts showing an interest in Leah that goes beyond friendship, she is dumbfounded and doesn’t believe it is possible – until one weekend that changes everything.

Will Matt and Leah’s popularity status get in the way of having a chance at a real relationship?

Or does status mean nothing when it comes to true love?

Cute!  Seriously Cute! Waiting on Forever is one of those feel good books that shows the beauty of a girl who doesn't think she's good enough and a boy who sees how beautiful she really is... inside and out!

Leah is a sweet girl who majorly lacks in the confidence department when it comes to boys that are interested in her.  She's one of those characters that every girl can relate to in one way or another.  She's easy to love, she's smart, she's loyal, and she's compassionate.  She finds a friend in a boy that she never could have imagined finding a friend in and when that boy shows an interest beyond the friendship Leah is convinced it will ever be... she finds one of the sweetest loves she ever could have hoped for.

Matt is the opposite of your average jock.  He's hot but I have to say the way he acts towards everyone, especially Leah, made him even hotter.  He sees exactly what he wants in his forever girl in Leah and he's determined to do whatever it takes to keep her.  He's fiercely loyal and protective.  He's beyond sweet and has this way with words that just make you want to lick him.

When Matt and Leah go from friends to something more... the chemistry is over powering, the love is more than obvious, and the friendship gets even stronger. Sure there were little hiccups in their relationship, things both of them had to overcome but the drama between the two was minimal and caused because of jealousy of others.

Waiting on Forever is one of those books that will stay on my re-read list... it's got all I could ask for in a feel good romance with just enough steamy heat to make my eyes go dreamy!  It's definitely one I recommend, especially if you're looking for a sweet romance that reminds you of how sweet it really is when a friendship is formed before falling in love.

Some may consider me a jack of all trades, but I consider myself well rounded.
I’ve waitressed, styled hair, answered phones and, most recently, worked full time as mom to my two beautiful little boys.
Then there was this book…
Everyone and their brother started talking about this book series titled Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James.  I didn’t really pay attention to the craze at first, since I wasn’t a big reader- okay, I didn’t read at all.  But curiosity got the best of me, so I downloaded it to my kindle.
I was immediately hooked. I read the whole series in three days.  Yes, three books in three days.
I kept finding all these great books that I HAD to read (just ask my credit card!).
  Then I started hearing voices. Voices that turned into stories; stories that were begging to get out of my head.
I started writing them down on scraps of paper. Then I transferred them to my computer. Before I knew it, PLANNING ON FOREVER was born.
The voices in my head are still talking, so I’m still writing.
After high school I decided to give college a whirl, but found myself living back home after my first year.  I waitressed for a while then decided I wanted to try my hand at hairdressing. After graduating from cosmetology school, I worked in a salon for a couple of years.
I found myself hating the crazy salon hours so I quit hairdressing and started working in the medical field, answering phones.  Although working the nine to five thing gave me more of a social life, sitting at a desk answering phones was not my cup of tea.
Then came my husband, and the idea of going back to school.  That didn’t last long because I didn’t even finish a full semester.  Luckily, my husband works for a great company that I was able to get a job at, answering phones again. Not my career of choice, but it was a fun working environment.
This time instead of being bored with my career, I got pregnant, and leaving my precious bundle of joy home while I went to work was not going to happen, which leads me to today where I am a stay at home mom with two beautiful little boys.
