Book Release Blast for Wait For Always by K.A. Linde (REVIEW)…….

 It's a long and bumpy journey for two friends becoming oh so much more in this captivating contemporary romance.  Keep reading to get a tempting taste of Wait For Always by K.A. Linde, along with my impressions of it, then add this fourth installment in the Coastal Chronicles to your bookshelf!

A stand alone brother's best friend romance about Ash Talmadge & Amelia Ballentine by USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde...
Ash Talmadge is everything I shouldn’t want.
My brother’s best friend. A too charismatic, too attractive Southern gentleman. And obsessed with someone else.
But she’s finally out of the picture. I put two years between their break up just to be sure. This is finally my chance.
His focus is all on me. Exactly where I wanted it to be since high school when he saved me from humiliation. And after college when he finally realized I was more than just his best friend’s little sister.
There’s only one person who could ruin this for me. I’ve waited this long.
I’m willing to wait for always.



From the moment I saw Ash Talmadge I became completely obsessed with him!  He's sexy and swoon-worthy with a past that made him the man he is today.  Previous books showed him in a relationship with someone who clearly wasn't for him, brought out choices that made me want to slap him.  With this book though he finally finds "his person" and oh what a beautifully angsty journey it is for him...and for Amelia Ballantine.

As the best friend of her brother, Ash has been in Amelia's life since they were young.  They had a deep connection, one that took on a romantic vibe for Amelia, but it never moved beyond that.  The time was just never right for them to be anything more than caring friends.  Times with him dating others or her dating others left them dancing around one another in a sensually, frustrating dance that kept me on the edge of my seat.  Previously, readers got to see choices from Ash's and other's viewpoints, but this time around readers see things more from Amelia's perspective.  Ms. Linde has cleverly crafted this pair's lifelong timeline, shown charming moments that displayed their feelings for one another subtly growing, and it made me like both of them all the more.  Overall there's a lyrical feel to this story, one that enthralled me while depicting an epic love trying to come to fruition.

Ash and Amelia were a compelling couple throughout their bumpy journey to HEA.  As their love for one another grew, so too did my love for them as I rooted for all the stars to align to finally bring them together forever.  Ash was the kind of hero who calls to you.  He didn't always make the right choices but he always tried to do right.  He especially tried to do right by Amelia and didn't act on his love for her until he knew he could give her his all...and his all was truly romantic!  Through all the ups and downs Amelia remained a wonderful heroine, one with a caring heart and a genuine personality that was immensely likable.  She had a strong will and a dedication to her job and these two individuals together were magical.  Surrounding them were characters from past books that tied all these stories together with a big bow of happiness.  By the turn of the final page readers will be left with a smile on their face with proof that true love is worth the wait!

My rating for this is an A.
