Overview

Shanna has spent her whole life waiting—waiting to be old enough, waiting for the day she must pick a consort, waiting for a chance to finally overcome her despicable stepfather... and waiting for someone to finally banish the loneliness that comes with being a queen-in-waiting one step away from being murdered.

On the eve of the two-week event during which she must pick a consort from a bevy of suitors, two strangers arrive claiming to have been invited—though she knows full well they did not receive any such invitation. But the handsome, mischievous Prince Kallaar is too intriguing to resist, and his quiet bodyguard too compelling to ignore...

But she's learned the hard way never to let anyone get too close, and on the verge of gaining true independence her stepfather will stop at nothing to see she never gets it.

This is the first book I’ve read by Megan Derr and I honestly didn’t know what to expect going in. I was intrigued because I’m a huge fan of MMF romances, especially if they’re done right. The world Derr created in Waiting for You is a bit of the norm. For starters, there are dragons which seem to be commonplace in this world. Second, most of the characters are presented as bisexual. The heroine, Shanna, has had relationships with both men and women. Also, the suitors arriving at her castle to win her hand are both genders. With those two hooks, I was definitely into this book. Shanna is the future queen of her kingdom and has a horrible stepfather who possibly killed her mother and is definitely trying to keep his power by having his step daughter marry someone weak. Shanna is not a typical princess and spends her time in the stables and planning how to overthrow her stepfather. Early in the book she meets two traders from a different kingdom who show up every couple months while she is growing up. When it comes time for her to chose a spouse, the traders are revealed as Prince Kallaar and his bodyguard, Ahlma. Attracted to both, Shanna and her friends plot to free her from her stepfather’s control. While I did enjoy the world Derr created, I felt too much time was spent on the political issues/worldbuilding and not enough time was spent developing the relationship between Shanna, Kallaar, and Ahlma. A good MMF romance takes time to develop and needs focus on all three of the characters and how they operate separately and together and in pairs. There simply wasn’t enough time for that in this book. While the sex scenes were steamy, they were limited and mostly featured Kallaar and Shanna or all three together. Overall, I did enjoy this book and the ending definitely makes me want to read more in this series.
