Waiting on Faith is a book about having faith during times of struggle and finding the will to move forward and know that good things are ahead. Natalie finally found the courage to leave her abusive boyfriend. She spent the last year or so living with her cousin Spencer and getting her life back together. But life in the big California city doesn’t suit her well and she decides to move in with her uncle and aunt in the small southern town of Savannah Georgia. She gets a job, makes some friends and eventually decides she wants a place of her own. It was during her house warming party that he walks in. His name is Cy and he is an intense man of very few words. They can’t seem to take their eyes off each other. It doesn’t take them long to develop a relationship that is nothing but hot and steamy, but they both have baggage. And Natalie is carrying a big secret. Will her past catch up with her? If it does will they be able to get through it?
I loved this book. The relationship between Natalie and Cy was very hot from the beginning once he got past his awkwardness. I thought Natalie’s character was well rounded. She came from abuse, but she didn’t let it define her. She let it strengthen her. Cy, I wasn’t so sure about. At first he came off as intense but there were a lot of times when he was almost like a whinny school boy who was upset because he didn’t get picked first on the playground. The background characters were awesome as well. I loved her cousin Spencer, he was good at being her rock but he knew when she needed space as well. But don’t get me started on Cy’s sister Candace. What a witch. She played a pretty dirty trick on Natalie and I would have liked to have seen how Cy dealt with it.
There was just enough suspense weaved into the story to make you want to keep reading it and Nichole the author did a great job keeping the secret of what happened to the child Natalie was carrying in the beginning of the book. This was the second book in the She’s Beautiful Series but it can be read as a stand alone. Looking forward to reading more!
