Rated 5 out of 5 by from yes! Worth the Wait bears its title very well! I loved this story, even though it followed one main couple, plus another couple who got less time allotted to them. The writing is so good, and there’s some well-timed suspense as well as the romance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great read! Well worth the wait. "Worth the Wait" was exactly that; worth the wait! This book is number 2 in the series of the Guthrie Brothers and tells the stories of the sizzling hot Barbecue Master/single dad Hogan Guthrie is trying to rebuild a life for him and his teenage son Colt. He thinks he has it all figured out: life, job, money relationships off limits.... If he has sworn off of commitment, then why is the independent Miss Violet Shaw able to get under his skin and turn up the heat with her sexy curves! There is more sizzling happening here then just his Barbecue Master ribs with special sauce! Nathan Hawley is the town’s sheriff. He has his focus on his hot new neighbor, Brooklin Sweet. She thinks she can resist him, but Nathan, if nothing else is one very determined man, and he is in hot pursuit. Call it a hunch but he feels there is something the sexy Brooklin is hiding. He feels very protective of her. He knows he will need to earn her trust and she certainly isn’t going to make it easy for him. Welcome to the quite little town of Clearbrook. There are some hot romances happening in this town. This book has it all; from learning to trust to hot and steamy sex with a bit of a mystery mixed in to keep the reader wanting more. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. This has in no way influenced my review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3.75 stars--heartwarming, energetic, passionate 3.75 stars-WORTH THE WAIT is the second installment in Lori Foster’s contemporary, adult GUTHRIE BROTHERS romance series. This is single father and accountant Hogan Guthrie, and diner owner Violet Shaw’s story line. There is a secondary romance developing between former SWAT team member and Sheriff Nathan Hawley, and jewelry designer Brooklin Sweet. WORTH THE WAIT can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. Told from several third person perspectives WORTH THE WAIT follows two developing romances. Hogan Guthrie thought he had everything figured out but the death of his wife left Hogan a single father financially struggling to make good on a promise he made to his seventeen-year old son Colt. Working as the part-time barbecue master at Screwy Louie’s alongside the woman he can’t stop thinking about Hogan battles to separate business from pleasure. Enter diner owner Violet Shaw, his boss, and the woman with whom Hogan will fall in love. But all of Hogan’s attempts at seduction are pushed aside as Violet struggles with Hogan’s reputation as a one-night stand kinda guy. A bout of pneumonia, and a worrisome injury find Hogan playing nursemaid to a reluctant and ailing Violet. Slowly worming his way into Violet’s heart Hogan soon realizes that Violet may be the woman he claims for his happily ever after. But jealousy and temper will get the best of Violet Shaw threatening Hogan’s fragile hold on his new-found independence. Meanwhile, Sheriff Nathan Hawley is desperate to get to know his gorgeous new neighbor but suspects Brooklin Sweet is keeping secret a dark and painful past. Nathan’s early morning runs with Brooklin, and flirty ‘hellos’ are rebuffed and ignored on more than one occasion but a late night scare finds Brooklin face to face with the man she had kept at a distance but a distance that is slowly closing as threats against Brooklin become personal and real. WORTH THE WAIT follows numerous paths and several developing romances that intersect throughout the story. Brooklin’s past comes seeking revenge threatening many of the people she has come to love in the small town of Clearbrook Ohio. The premise is entertaining; the characters are playful; the romances are sexy and seductive. WORTH THE WAIT is a heartwarming, energetic and passionate story line by romance author Lori Foster.
