Believing that Arianne Douglas will never truly be devoted to him, Gregory Adams moves on with his girlfriend, Tiffany Comeaux.

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***
Book 2.5 in The Waiting Series, and continuing the same story. Do, though, read them in order.or you will be lost. All of the old characters are present and the author somehow seems to manage keeping track of all of them. Fortunately the author has supplied an appendix and I strongly advise reading it not when you have finished, but before you start. All descriptions of everything from sex scenes to the interaction and plotting between the various families is just as well handled as in the previous books in the series, accounting for the five stars awarded. From the ending it is obvious that there is at least one more book to come and I look forward to reading and enjoying it.
