From Buzzfeed to Babble to Scary Mommy and even network television-the most anticipated social media viral sensation is LIVE and just in case you haven’t grabbed it yet, YOU REALLY SHOULD!
The story of romance writer Amy Daws’ relationship with a little tire shop in South Dakota is a refreshingly fun tale that ends in an auto shop romantic comedy that you have to read!
When romance novelist, Kate Smith, finds her long lost writing mojo in the customer waiting area of a tire store, the complimentary coffee isn’t the only things that’s hot. But sexy mechanic, Miles Hudson, is just up for a friendly test-drive of her new book idea.
At least, that was the agreement…
It’s pretty much guaranteed that every time I pick up a book by Amy Daws that she will have me laughing within the first few pages, and she has yet again proven this true in her latest novel, Wait With Me. This light-hearted, quirky, and sweet romance was such a delightful read!
Amy Daws creates the most down-to-earth and relatable characters in her stories, and they always seem to have their own unique charm! Kate Smith, writing under the pen name of Mercedes Lee Loveletter, was so fun and feisty, and although she was quite courageous, she also had her insecurities as well. Not only did she have writer’s block, but she also felt a bit judged in her career choice. I admired Kate for following her passion as a writer, as well as her determination to overcome her writer’s block in the Customer Comfort Center of Tire Depot!
Miles Hudson really was just a simple and truly sweet guy. Finally moving on from his crazy ex-girlfriend, he was done with drama in his life. However, Miles couldn’t help but be intrigued by the beautiful redhead furiously typing away in the corner at his work every day. When she asks him to help her with her ‘research’ for her novel, how could he possibly say no?
Miles and Kate were so fun and playful together, and everything just melded together naturally between them. Throughout the story, there was a slow-building passion growing between them, much deeper than their initial attraction, which soon turned into feelings neither were ready to admit. Miles and Kate each had their own reasons for this, and I couldn’t help but feel for both of them, as their past relationship situations held them back. Although Kate didn’t share everything about herself initially, there was still a genuine understanding and honesty between her and Miles, and I loved how they appreciated each other for who they were!
Amy Daws just has the best sense of humor, and I love how well she conveys it into her writing! She has this tremendous ability to capture relatable thoughts and emotions on paper, which makes her stories feel very realistic. They’re always unique and engaging, and although this was a step away from her trademark British flair, I admire her for branching out and thought this was a refreshing change of pace!
I also really enjoyed the storyline with Kate being an erotic author and the many challenges that she faced in her career choice. It was very interesting to get Kate’s (or maybe Daws’?) point of view. One of my favorite parts of the story was Mile’s sister’s reaction when he told her what Kate did for a living. It was absolutely hilarious that he had a whole family of romance readers and his mother had her own ‘Dirty Birdy’s Book Blog’. Honestly, it was really the type of response every romance reader, blogger, or author could hope for in real life, and it was fan-freaking-tastic!
Wait With Me was such an fun read, and I really enjoyed it! There’s a lot of backstory to it as well with Amy Daws actually writing this in her hometown at Tires, Tires, Tires and sharing her journey on her Instagram. It’s seriously funny as well, so if you haven’t checked that out, you definitely should!
ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
It all began when Daws went to Tires Tires Tires to get a new set of wheels on her car. She was suffering from writer’s block, but apparently the complimentary coffee and cookies cured her. So she decided to bring in cars of friends and family so she could keep writing in the magical waiting room.
Her social media musings had her fans in stitches and it wasn’t long before inspiration struck again. This time…Daws was to write a sexy romantic comedy about a romance novelist who sneaks into a tire shop and gets caught by a hot mechanic. You can imagine where the love story goes from here.
Eventually, the little tire shop opened their arms to Daws, even putting her release date on their marquee sign outside.
It wasn’t long before Buzzfeed got wind of it. Then Scary Mommy. Then InspireMore and several other blogs with followers well into the millions. WGN News in Chicago, Fox 10 in Phoenix and Canada Public Radio are all talking about the adorable feel good story of how inspiration can strike in the strangest of places.
She slaps her hand on her knee and bellows gallantly, “But you know what, Miles, you’re right! I should totally find a random hookup tonight.”
“Whoa, I never said anything about random.”
“Well, you’re doing it, so why can’t I?”
I narrow my eyes. “You don’t seem like the random type.”
“Maybe I should be.” Her eyes narrow when she leans in and whispers against my lips. “Can I tell you a secret, Miles?”
“You can tell me anything, Mercedes.”
She giggles and crooks her finger for me to lean in even closer. I’m so close I can smell the faint scent of her cherry lip gloss, and it’s not helping the half boner having a party in my pants.
Her lips graze my ear when she whispers, “My writing makes me horny.”
I nearly choke on my beer. “I’m sorry, what?”
“My writing makes me horny.” She pulls back and nods her confirmation. “I’m serious. I have a sex toy that works really well and really fast, but I miss the heat of a man, ya know?”
My eyes scrunch together, and I rub my fingers in the sockets to make sure I’m awake and hearing this all correctly. “I mean…I don’t really ever miss the heat of man, so I don’t think I know exactly what you’re saying.”
“Fine, the heat of a woman.” She rolls her eyes dramatically “You know what I’m talking about. The heat.”
I frown and shake my head. “You’re going to have to elaborate because I think of a lot of things when I think of women, but their body temperature isn’t one of them.”
“You asked for it.” She laughs and leans in so she’s speaking low and soft and directly into my ear. “The heat of a woman is so much more than temperature. It’s the soft, sensual curves of the female form. The way your fingers dig into the meat of her thighs when she’s wrapped around you. Her smooth, sunken tummy when she’s on her back, the delicate bumps of her ribcage when she’s throwing her head back in pleasure. Tight little nipples in pillows of creamy softness. The fact that you could fold yourself around her and envelop her body almost entirely and still want more. You’re saying you don’t miss that kind of heat?”
I blink slowly, recovering from what just happened. Her voice was a sensual, verbal caress straight on my cock. Then there was the warm heat of her breath on my ear. The deep husk of her tone. The way her warm palm rests softly on my thigh.
