Overview

College.

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.

Matthew Jacobs.

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 heard 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?

Meet the Author

Some may consider me a jack of all trades, but I consider myself well rounded.
I’ve waitressed, styled hair, answered phones and, most recently, worked full time as mom to my two beautiful little boys.

Then there was this book…

Everyone and their brother started talking about this book series titled Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James. I didn’t really pay attention to the craze at first, since I wasn’t a big reader- okay, I didn’t read at all. But curiosity got the best of me, so I downloaded it to my kindle. I was immediately hooked. I read the whole series in three days. Yes, three books in three days.

I kept finding all these great books that I HAD to read (just ask my credit card!.

Then I started hearing voices. Voices that turned into stories; stories that were begging to get out of my head. I started writing them down on scraps of paper. Then I transferred them to my computer. Before I knew it, Planning on Forever was born.

    This is the first book I have read by Ashley Wilcox and I really

    This is the first book I have read by Ashley Wilcox and I really enjoyed it. Based on the description of the book, I was under the impression that Matt and Leah were long time best friends. Come to find out they barely know each other, at the beginning I wouldn't really even call them friends they were more like acquaintances. I think the beginning of the story was a little underdeveloped, but other than that I really enjoyed the love story between Matt and Leah. It was refreshing and tasteful. I thought that the epilogue was a little rushed, but much needed. I would definitely recommend this book, but I will probably not finish the series.

    This is my first experience with reading a book by Ashley Wilcox

    This is my first experience with reading a book by Ashley Wilcox….. I just <3 it! Waiting on Forever is a book about waiting.

    This book is the perfect pace, gives just enough details, and has 2 of the sweetest characters ever! Leah and Matt are polar opposites from first impressions… In fact, I kept telling myself please tell me there’s not going to become crazy twist I can’t handle…. Of course there was…. It just was the one I was thinking!

    Leah is a loner and is fine with that. She doesn’t even realize her true beauty. She also doesn’t give 2 cents what others think, and tells it like it is.

    Matt is Mr. Popular, and Leah assumes he’s a ladies man…. We all know what happens when you ASSume! Matt is a football star, and def not what Leah thinks she wants in a guy.

    I love how their relationship starts even before they both realize it. They always seemed to find a way to increase their time together. Their relationship is innocent and full of firsts. This book is a great read. It has friendships, love, heartache, misunderstandings, desire, assumptions, and looks into the future! I’ll sum it up by saying outta ALL the books I’ve read and reviewed…. Matt is the kinda guy you pray your daughter finds in life…. The guy she waits on FOREVER!

    Wonderful!

    This story gripped me from the beginning; I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Ashley tells a great, young, now story with depth beyond her years. I laughed, I cried, I became angry and heart-warmed all within the pages of this wonderful book. The characters are so relatable.

    I liked the book just thought that Leah & Matt's friendship should have expanned over maybe a year instead. Nice twist to Matt's character soooo not what I first expected of him!!

    3.25 Stars Waiting on Forever is a sweet love story between Mat

    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.

    If you are looking for an amazingly sweet, make you feel tingly

    If you are looking for an amazingly sweet, make you feel tingly from the romance, and a bit hot from the sexy bits then you are looking for Waiting On Forever. 




    Leah can't get imagine that a boy like Matt could ever like a girl like her. I have to admit that this bothered me. I know it's normal especially in teens and young adults to think that someone is better than them or not good enough because of popularity or whatever but it makes Leah seem weak. She honestly doesn't think she is worthy of Matt because she isn't a sexually experienced bimbo. Speaking of sex and experience.....Leah is a super-virgin. She hasn't even been kissed yet but one kiss from Matt has her ready to drop her pants in a heap on the floor. Really? I didn't feel like that was very genuine. Now reading back on this it sounds like I don't like Leah very much but that's not true. There were some things I really liked about her. In all other areas of her life she was a strong character. She was smart, creative, sarcastic and she really doesn't take any crap from the bimbos, in fact she can be downright scrappy.




    Matt adores Leah. After talking to her on Facebook for a while he manages to find a way to spend more time with her. For the most part I really liked Matt. Even though he is a star football player and everyone likes him he never seems to fall for fame that popularity can bring. He remains true to himself throughout the entire novel and I love how much he respects and cares for Leah. 




    I really did enjoy Waiting on Forever. There isn't a lot of heartbreaking drama and the sexy scenes are hot enough to make you blush but aren't particularly naughty (definitely for mature readers though). This story is a spin off of Planning on Forever but I haven't read that yet and I didn't feel like I was missing anything so it really is a stand alone novel. I also really liked that the epilogue wrapped everything up with a ridiculously gorgeous bow.

    For any contemporary romance fan Waiting on Forever would be a s

    For any contemporary romance fan Waiting on Forever would be a safe option, yet I felt that although the plot was generically perfect and the romance was delicately evolved, there was little character and story development, and so personally I was disappointed in Ashley Wilcox's novel.
    I liked the idea of Matt and Leah being friends, even by email, before there is any sign of a relationship. This fits with Leah's innocent and shy persona (which she is quick to shed!!) and establishes a deeper connection between them. I think as a female reader we trust Matt's intentions more because he obviously has made an effort with Leah.
    Ashley Wilcox has definitely written a story which contradicts male and female stereotypes in several ways, and this is why I think Waiting on Forever should be added to a TBR, and why I have given it 3 hearts!
    Hope you enjoy it!

    Waiting on Forever is a beautiful love story about two best frie

    Waiting on Forever is a beautiful love story about two best friends that are on the brink of becoming more. Leah is a loner that works hard to make the grades and goes to bed early on party nights. She really does not have time to date or hang out with friends, at least not until Matt. She met Matt during orientation and they quickly became best friends. He doesn't care that she is not popular, and she tries not to care that he is. Leah tried to just be friends, but her heart betrayed her and she feel fast, hard, and deeply in love with Matt. Leah is determined to love Matt from afar because she has no place in his world except as his friend. That is until one weekend changes everything...

    Ashley Wilcox has weaved a tale of falling in love and the compromise and sacrifices that one has to make in order to be together. Leah and Matt have such a beautiful relationship with one another. Both characters are passionate, strong, and lovable in their own ways. If you are looking for a quick, sweet read, then look no farther. Cuddle up, sip some wine, and indulge in true love!

    FANTASTIC LOVE STORY!!!

    I enjoyed this book so much. This is my first read by Ashley. But I am now a big fan. This story was so moving. At times it had me laughing so hard , my husband thought I was losing my mind. Leah has so much spunk I loved her instantly. Kayla was a hoot. And of course Matt was the sweetest guy ever. If your looking for a story that will make you feel every emotion then this is it. You'll laugh and you'll cry be sad and angry. But it is so worth it. I highly recommend this book.

    I had read story 1 in the series a few months back and had enjoyed it… so I was excited to read book #2!

    Ashley Wilcox didn’t disappoint!  This series is well written and fun.

    Matthew is cute and fun and one of the most popular guys on campus.  All of the girls want to date him, but for some reason his heart is taken with Leah from the beginning of the school year.  Leah doesn’t get what Matt sees in her. He is the type of guy that she has always dreamed about, but never managed to land, but he seems to really like her.

    Matt is so sweet and caring, how can you not be crazy about him? But Leah has a few insecure issues to deal with if she and Matt are going to make a go of it….

    This one was a winner for me.  Nothing too serious and not a ton of girl inspired drama either.

    First off I want to say how nice it was to read a NA contempora

    First off I want to say how nice it was to read a NA contemporary that did not make my heart bleed or break. Many of the NA contemps I've read lately are full of heartbreak and angst, so I really liked that this was light and relatively no drama. With that being said, as I read I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop and have a big plot twist to screw up all the perfect. But, it didn't come. We had one minor incident, where things were not as they seemed, and it worked out. It did almost seem as if everything was a little too perfect, however. The plot was pretty linear and didn't have a whole lot of ups and downs.

    I liked both Matt and Leah's characters. Both are attending SUNY Cortland (yay upstate NY!) and meet at freshmen orientation. Leah starts off as quite uninterested in Matt and does not really pay him much attention. He, however, notices her: as the nerdy, but cute girl taking pictures. He likes that she doesn't give him the time of day and fall all over him like other girls. The two end up developing an online friendship with a casual greeting every now and again when they see each other on campus.

    However, things start to change when Matt switches into Leah's French class and ends up needing tutoring. Matt starts showing up at her door to walk her to class and finding ways to hang out with her. Matt is popular, good-looking, and an all around nice guy. Leah sees this and can't help falling for him. However, Leah is very insecure, and we see her mind battling with the fact that maybe he does like her based on his actions. But then her next though is that a guy like him would never see something in an unpopular girl like her. Leah just needed a little bit of a confidence booster. As the story progresses we do get to see her become more and more confident in herself and in her blooming relationship with Matt.

    It's nice to see Leah open up. She goes from being the girl who hangs out alone in her dorm on Friday nights to a girl who wants friendships and to fall in love. I'm glad that she took a chance on Matt, because she really came out of her shell with him.

    However, this was a fast, cute read despite the fact that there wasn't a whole lot of depth to it.

    This is the first strictly romance novel I have read in a long time. Typically I am a fan of supernatural things but Ashley Wilcox made me forget completely that paranormal books were even an option and commanded my full attention from the very first page. Leah Bennett is a college freshman who just tried to survive high school and now make it through college. She is the essence of what every girl struggles with when finding herself and love in a new place. I fell in love with her after her first interaction with Matthew Jacobs, the hot star football player that every girl dreams about. The story that Ashley was able to weave had me begging for more. I opened it this morning and read it from cover to cover squealing like a little kid in a candy store. When they were embarrassed I cringed for them, I high-fived Leah through the pages and cheered Matt on as if I was truly there. Waiting on Forever is an absolutely breathtaking story that I would recommend to anyone and will be reading again. If you are looking for a book that will consume you, make you forget to eat and forfeit bathroom breaks for one more chapter-this is the book for you. Ashley Wilcox's book is what a true romance novel should be and couldn't possibly disappoint. I'm so glad I read this book and I swear you will be too.

    AMAZING!

    Ashley Wilcox is my now favorite Author. This is a really sweet. Steamy, wonderful book. A true love story between hot foolball playet, Matt and a nerdy girl, Leah. They start out as friends, but they have an immediate attraction.

    As they spend time together their feelings grow. I loved how they were so kind to one another, and their chemistry was smokin hot too.

    You will love this story....
