Another great read by a great author I was literally laughing out loud in certain parts at Saffron. You do shed some tears as well. Logan and Saffron are another great couple. Logan is a quiet brooder and Saffron is quirky and funny. I loved the small town atmosphere with the close friends and community. I really can't say enough great things about this story.

Five Beautiful Golden Stars!!!!! This is the first book I have read by L.A. Foire. I for see many more of her books in my future. I am lucky enough to have won a signed copy of this book from a give away on TRSoR. YAY for me!!! This book hooked me from the first page. I was totally riveted to it from the beginning. It had so much emotion to it. It was one of the most happy & sad, beautiful & heartbreaking books I have read in a while. There were phrases and sentences where I thought, just wow. A simple phrase such as "It starts to snow" was enough to bring tears to the eyes of the reader. Chapter six was a very beautiful and heartbreaking chapter for me. I am not one to tear up while reading but I have to say this book did it for me. In a lot of books the background characters are just that. They're filler to make the story more complete. I have to say Frank has to be one of the best background characters for me. I absolutely loved him. He was a very believable part of the story. Ms. Fiore's writing style just flowed together seamlessly. I loved how some of the story was very poetic like in the type of writing. Very glad to have discovered a new author!! I'm assuming there will be another book & I can't wait. Would love more Saffron & Logan and the folks of Harrington, Maine!!

L.A. Fiore did it again. I am really happy that books can not really literally kill you – because if they could this would have been a close one. This was not my first novel from this author so I had a pretty good idea what I was getting myself into. When you start reading the novel you (or at least I had it) will have maybe a problem with all of the suffocation small-town life, but while the story unravels all of it which seem so annoying in the beginning starts to make sense. And it becomes obvious that the author really thought everything through. The writing is flawless and fluent and the characters that are important to the flow of the story all have such a well designed “background” that they seem to be able to step outside of the book at any time. And those dialogues, oh no – please don’t let me start on those dialogues, they were just so funny and witty and in the next moment gut-wrenching deep Then finally those last chapters really did a “thing” to me, they had me crying and struggling, the not knowing was horrible. So thank you L.A. Fiore you did a great job

I was provided with a copy of this book by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I requested this book after seeing a friend raving about it on facebook. I love a good romance and the book blurb caught my attention. This is my first read by this author. I thought the storyline was well developed and loved Saffron. She was a fun character and very likable. I enjoyed the banter between her and "David". It was a book that kept me turning the pages just for the storyline. My only issue was the amount of sex in the book. I thought it was too much! Toward the end it felt like every other page was talking about sex. I began to skim it just to get back to the storyline. I read the books for the characters more than the sex. That was the only negative in my opinion.

      Waiting for the One, L.A. Fiore Genre:  Romance Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews I love L.A.Fiore’s writing. Some authors write books in a genre that are so similar it feels like reading the same story, but with new characters – you know the sort, where men are alpha males and either bikers, monosyllabic and demanding, tattooed, bad boy MMA types, or rich, suave businessmen. They’re almost cut and paste characters. Nothing wrong if that’s what you want to read, but for me writers like this who come up with totally original characters and themes are who do it for me. Saffron, she’s lovely. So full of positivity, even though she’s had the parents from hell – emotionally distant and cruel. She’s made her own life, found her own family in her friends from school and elderly neighbour Frank. He’s now in a home, and yet she still visits him several times a week. Its a small town, there’s a lot going on and Saffron is always ready to lend a willing hand. She’ll step up to help anyone, even though money is tight, she gives freely of her time. The town festivals were terrific, and the swordfish funnel cake part – fabulous! Logan turned up a few months back. Comes in the bar where she works but never speaks to her. He talks to others but never her. He just responds with tiny smiles, and she’s made it a mission to get him to speak, but so far, funny though her chats are, she’s not succeeded. Then comes the swordfish festival and everything changes!! Its a terrific read, packed with drama and emotion – actually made me cry – real tears, honestly, and that doesn’t happen often. Its a great story, the characters are wonderful and I was there with them, at the festivals, in the bar and when the dangers started stacking up for Saffron, like Logan I worried for her. Its a typical example of how the media affect people’s lives. We see it all the while, words and pictures twisted to put the worst spin on, it seems sometimes anything is game so long as the stories sell. Money really is God to some, and they don’t care who gets damaged in the fallout. Like Saffron I wonder – Why? Why do people feel the need to know every bit of ( false ) info about a celebrity’s life. Why do they queue for hours, imagine they are in love, see the Star as a person, rather than the real personality behind it. Odd – just odd, but we see it every day. Must be scary to be involved on the wrong side of some deranged fans. The story itself is perfect, there are lots of little sub plots that round out the Saffron and Logan romance, that make it so much more than a HEA romance, and make it one I’ll want to read again. I loved it. Stars: Stars: Five, a great read, incredibly sad at times and yet also very funny at others. . ARC provided by Netgalley and publishers

My Review What an excellent read! I fell in love with the story line almost instantly.The idea of a small fishing town where young available men, were few and far between was very intriguing. I just had to find out more. I just adored Saffron. She was close to her 30th birthday and was looking for the one. But, each guy she ends up dating, ends up being a dud. She is just about to give up her search, until one encounter with Logan, changes everything. Logan is tall, dark, and handsome: exactly what Saffron has been looking for, but there’s more to Logan than meets the eye. What will happen when he’s true identity comes out? Will Saffron be able to handle the reality of who he is?? Waiting for the One was such a great read for me. I didn’t want to put it down. I fell for the characters and their quiet town almost immediately. Not only did this story have some great angst and romance, but it also had a wonderful suspense factor. I don’t want to give anything away, but I will say this, I was definitely kept on my toes. Just when I thought I knew what was going on, I had a curve ball thrown at me. And let me tell you, the last few chapters of this book were so heartbreaking. I didn’t want to believe that what was happening was real. And when everything came full circle and the truth was out there, my feelings were right on with Saffron’s. I didn’t know whether to be happy or sad. So, all I can say is well done! Waiting for the One is a captivating story of friendship and the true meaning of family. It is a story about how great love is when you’ve finally found the one. This story made me laugh, cry, and swoon. I really enjoyed Saffron and Logan’s story and can’t wait to see what L.A. Fiore brings us next. *I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
