But Alex doubts he’ll want anything more if he discovers the indiscretion she can’t forgive herself for… Marc came to Potterville to get some space from his band and clear his head. But before he knows it, he’s intrigued with the waitress at the local diner. Alex is not only smart and beautiful, she’s inspiring his songwriting and taking it to the next level. Soon he’s falling for her—and then she runs away. For the first time, Marc is chasing after a woman—and giving both himself and Alex a chance to heal past hurts and take a chance on the future…
Review : I finished “Waiting For A Girl Like You” by Christa Maurice the day before yesterday and I still cannot make up my mind what to say about it. Except that it was a real weird reading trip for me.
Not that it was bad but I felt like I stepped into an alternate universe. The setting was contemporary so you also kind of expect the people to act that way but the whole setting felt more like a version of “the Gilmore Girls” on fast forward.
The actual storyline was interesting but for me it kind of got lost in between the whiplashes of Alex emotions or thoughts in general.
I only saw now, when preparing this review that it is actually the 3rd book in a series – which makes total sense now because at times I had to struggle to keep up with the plot. So do yourselves a favor and read the books in the right order. But even if some of my struggle was due to me missing out on the first two books, still the main plot was very confusing due to the actions and thoughts of the female lead.
Also I am am strong believer of series that enable the reader to still understand fully what is going on – even when you did not read the first books and I am afraid due to a lot of basically unnecessary informations around the couple in this book there was more confusion for the reader created than explanation.
I could not connect to the relationship that was supposed to be developing between Marc and Alex. To me they felt like those kind of children that only play together because their parents are friends and not because they actually like each other. I could not even understand why the town thought they would be perfect to each other because except that they were both at the same time in the same place they had nothing that I (as a reader) could feel would “bind” them …
