I thoroughly enjoyed this book! What a refreshing storyline. You'll fall in love with both of the main characters and the supporting characters as well. The story was pieced together masterfully. I could visualize everything that was happening. I can't remember the last time I've laughed out loud and felt so much emotion just from having read a book as I did with Waiting in The Wings. I completely understood how both characters were at fault for how the story unfolded. Brayden did a very good job of writing the vacillation that each of the characters was battling because of their insecurities, particularly with Adrienne's character. The story offered and excellent flow and pace. Although I'm greedy; and would have loved to have read more about life thereafter, it honestly ended perfectly. Perhaps a sequel...? I hope to read more from this author very soon. Absolutely worthy of the nomination for best debut novel...

What a great book. I loved how Brayden took the time to let the story evolve and develop the characters. Such a pleasure to read a book that is more then a hurry up meet, fall in love, live happily ever after.

Jenna McGovern receives the best graduation present possible. No sooner does she finish college than she is cast in a famous touring Broadway show starring television star Adrienne Kenyon. When Jenna and Adrienne become lovers everything seems to be going in the right direction; then Jenna receives an offer she can't refuse, but it costs her Adrienne. Years later they meet again when they are cast in the same movie. They slowly learn to reestablish their trust in each other and begin to consider giving their relationship another chance; then Jenna gets another offer, the best of her career. What will she decide this time? Waiting in the Wings is Melissa Brayden's debut novel and she demonstrates that she has mastered the requirements for a romance. She has a well developed story and two appealing central characters. She also manages to include gentle love scenes without verging into erotica. The reader will like both Jenna and Adrienne, which might explain one of the flaws in the book. Some passages are confusing because Brayden appears to be saying that Jenna is responsible for the course of the story, then she switches to Adrienne being the one at fault. It's also misleading when one moment Adrienne appears to be totally involved in the relationship, then Brayden indicates that she isn't. It's difficult to tell whether this is due to Brayden's inexperience as a writer or because she couldn't make up her mind. Actually, I was expecting more from this book because of other reviews and the fact that it's a finalist for an award as a debut novel. I thought the story would be stronger and show more ingenuity. That is one of the pitfalls of reading comments before the book is read and establishing expectations. What I discovered was an entertaining, but ordinary story. It's fine reading for entertainment, which is all it really needs to be. A reader looking for something fresh or different will need to look elsewhere though.

What a great read. Loved the characters! Also appreciated the length and depth of the story. If this is the authors first novel, I can't wait to read her other novels. The dialogue between the characters was witty, smart. Highly recommend.
