Blog Tour: WAITING ON FOREVER by Ashley Wilcox
Parties, sororities and getting drunk.
Oh, yeah. And learning.
This may be true for most college students, but not for Leah Bennett. College life for her includes studying, working, and excelling in school. When it comes to the social ladder, Leah is at the bottom. Popular girls, hot guys and star athletes are of no importance to her, except for one.
Matt is the starting wide receiver at SUNY Cortland, the most wanted guy on campus and Leah’s best friend. Although Leah’s feelings toward Matt run deeper than just a friendship, it is something she would never let be seen because the odds of someone like Matthew Jacobs going for someone like Leah Bennett are slim to none.
When Matt starts showing an interest in Leah that goes beyond friendship, she is dumbfounded and doesn’t believe it is possible – until one weekend that changes everything.
Will Matt and Leah’s popularity status get in the way of having a chance at a real relationship?
Or does status mean nothing when it comes to true love?
Dawn’s Review, 3.25 stars
Waiting on Forever is a sweet love story between Matt or MJ and Leah. They are both new to college when they first meet and Matt is instantly fascinated with Leah and her witty, sassy attitude. Leah knows Matt as a hot, popular football player who she believes is a love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy. One who would never be interested in her, the nerdy photography student. Circumstances push them together and they learn how very much they have in common.
There are several ‘awww, so sweet’ moments between the two of them. There is also a bit of ‘oh crap’ and ‘oh no’ going on. I would have loved a bit more angst and maybe more depth to the situation that Matt has to deal with toward the end to push me over an emotional edge.
Abby’s Review, 3 stars
Leah is a bold nerdy girl. She meets Matt but does not feel like she is good enough for him. They have a sweet, sweet love story. I enjoyed the characters. I was laughing out loud with Leah, because you just kind of love her. Matt is not typical and is a sweet man.
There were a lot of elements to this that I really enjoyed. If you are looking for a love story that is sweet and simple than you my really enjoy this. There is a very nice H.E.A.
My one major problem with this is that I thought that there was no real climax to the story. It also felt like it lacked a lot of conflict. So in a way I felt like I got a nice glimpse of a love story but somewhere I did not get that much of a story.
