Five years ago a madman stalked her. Kidnapped her. Tattooed her.
When security expert Cameron Dexter—the man Brooke Bennett once loved—appears unexpectedly at her door with terrifying news, the former musician discovers she can no longer hide from her past. After five years, her vicious kidnapper is out of prison and on the hunt—for Brooke.
Now he’s returned to complete his art.
Cam failed to protect Brooke once before. Now he’d rather die than let her be captured. With her life at stake, Cam vows to keep her hidden and safe. Brooke, however, is done with running. Unlike Cam, she wants to stand and fight. Emotions both old and new roil between them, but addressing their heated past must wait. Together they set a trap in London to catch a killer. But they soon discover the enemy wears many faces.
And waiting is no longer an option…
My Thoughts: A romantic suspense that will keep you wondering what will happen next. I found it hard to put down and absolutely loved the characters.
Brooke Bennett, one half of a musical duo, has spent the last five years trying to get passed the trauma of being kidnapped and tortured by a stalker. She held up in France to avoid the media, music, and all things in between. Even friends. When her narcissistic stalker is somehow released from prison, her former bodyguard Cameron shows up on her doorstep.
Cameron, filled with guilt, is determined to protect her this time. Something he failed to do the first time. Having always been attracted to her, he is dead set on keeping it professional and not let his heart get in the way of her safety. If he can keep her away from her former manager, Steven, he can maintain control.
Steven is all about the money and the spotlight. With Brooke and her friend Meghan being his biggest money makers before her ordeal, he figures he can get her back in the game to fill his pockets. He will stop at nothing.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Although it’s called The Waiting Game, it’s very fast paced. At first, I was frustrated with the characters. Then I realized the totality of the situation, and it flowed perfectly from there. Great character development without the unnecessary infodumps. Suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat. And the right touch of romance. I would definitely recommend this for any lovers of Romantic Suspense.
