Worth the Wait by Lori Foster

Series: Guthrie Brothers book 2
 ❤ ❤ 1/2  I was really looking forward to this book. I totally enjoyed the first and I loved the potential the other characters had for their own stories.  
What worked for me:
  • ▪2 for 1 romance - Loved the side romance between Nathan and Brooklin. I actually liked it more than the leads.
  • ▪In the beginning both couples have witty banter and good chemistry.
  • ▪Loved Colt and his parts in this book
  • ▪Happy to see that some of the chemistry was back near the end of the book.
What didn't work for me:
  • ▪As soon as the lead couple had sex, the tension and chemistry seemed to get lost and they focused too much on worrying that perhaps their relationship was only just sex.
  • ▪Both men seemed a bit too overprotective, to the point that it makes the heroine seem like he thinks her an invalid.
  • ▪From about just over halfway till pretty much the last chapter, it was mostly sex scenes, or what seemed to be scenes put in place just to lead up to sex. Just lost interest and skimmed them.
I see there are a bunch of rave reviews for this book, so perhaps I am alone in my thoughts. For me, it was missing the tenderness and fluttery “romance" feels, that I look for.  That said, I am glad I finished the book, and honestly, if Colt gets his own story, I would like to read it.

The Blurb:

Ready or not…love will find a way 

Single dad Hogan Guthrie is getting his life back on track, and working as the "barbecue master" at a local diner is just a temporary detour. He and restaurant owner Violet Shaw constantly butt heads…until one night they end up mingling other parts instead. Hogan thought he had the recipe for happiness all figured out. But loyal, carefree Violet is daring him to trust his impulses…and see just how sweet small-town living—and loving—can be. 
Nathan Hawley traded his SWAT team credentials for a sheriff's badge, but a gorgeous new neighbor is shaking up his orderly life. Nathan has a hunch there's more to Brooklin Sweet than meets the eye—but given her caution about getting involved, he has his work cut out for him. Still, there's something about the elusive beauty Nathan can't walk away from—and helping her come to terms with her past might pave the way to the future they both secretly long for.
