Jillian Lima' s whole world was destroyed in a span of a few hours. The same night her childhood love, Brock ‘the Beast' Mitchell, broke her heart, her life was irrevocably altered by the hand of a stranger with a gun. It takes six years to slowly glue together the shattered pieces of her life, but Jillian is finally ready to stop existing in a past full of pain and regret. She takes a job at her father' s martial arts Academy and she' s going out on her first date since a failed relationship that was more yuck than yum. Jillian is determined to start living.
She just never expected Brock to be a part of her life again. But he' s firmly back in her life before she knows it, and not only is he older, he' s impossibly more handsome, more teasing and more everything. And when he sees Jillian, he' s no longer capable of thinking of her as the little girl who was his shadow growing up or the daughter of the man who gave him a second chance at life. He sees the woman who' d always been there for him, the one person who believed in him no matter what.
Brock knows she' s the one he should' ve made his, and what begins as a tentative friendship quickly turns to red-hot chemistry that sparks a flame that burns brighter than lust. Falling for Brock again risks more than her heart, because when the sorrow-filled and guilt-ridden past resurfaces, and a web of lies threatens to rip them apart, the fallout could lay waste to everything they' ve fought to build together, and destroy the dreams of those they care most about.
I can’t believe that it’s the end of the Wait For You series!! I love these characters and I’m sad to see this series getting a wrap!
We’ve met Brock and Jillian in previous books of the Wait For You series. Jillian is a bit younger than the rest of the crew in this series and last we saw her she was crushing hardcore on Brock, all the while, Brock just saw her as a little sister.
This book takes place about six years after the rest of the series. Jillian is working in insurance and hasn’t seen Brock in those six years. The reason why being that the one night she decides to tell Brock how she feels about him, he pretty much blows her off. Minutes later after she leaves the Mona’s after she had been waiting for him, her life dramatically changes and definitely NOT IN A GOOD WAY.
Now it’s six years later and Jillian is still trying to get past the tragic event that she went through.. She finally decides to take a job at her father’s MMA training academy, only later finding out that Brock is her boss…and little does she know Brock has finally realized that she’s more than just a “kid sister” to him…
OH MY GOD. Why is this series over? I can’t get enough of Cam and Avery! They’re my favorite couple out of this entire series! As I was writing up this review I realized that this entire story is pretty much an epilogue for the entire series, while Brock and Jillian’s story is the main story line..you definitely get to see what the rest of the gang has been up to in the last 6 years.. I really loved that aspect of this story.. Although View Spoiler »
Jennifer did an amazing job with this story and I loved both Jillian and Brock.. Jillian had me crying in the first chapter and every chapter after that. Every time she revisited that night and we learned a little more about what happened I had tears running down my face. Jennifer really got the best of my emotions with this book. Brock seemed like a total player with a bright future in MMA when we first met him in the earlier series..but he’s definitely grown up since then. He wasn’t right for Jillian back then, but he’s definitely perfect for her now.
Thank you so much for this beautiful series, Jennifer. I can’t believe it’s over now. 🙁
