book blurb

“The dogs that deserved a chance, the guy who needed a second, and the girl determined to save him.”

My name is Emma Sawyer.

I met Charlie and Wyatt on the same sultry, summer day. It was unexpected, leaving a feeling in the pit of my stomach like the time I drove too fast over Beckett Hill. The moment happened out of nowhere, all fast and quick and a little strange. Or maybe that was just Wyatt’s personality.

It was Charlie that brought us together. Little Charlie with those ridiculous ears. I found the dog, waiting in a pool of his own blood. Waiting for someone. Waiting for me.

Now Wyatt, he wasn’t waiting for anyone. At least that’s what he said, except I saw something different in the broken guy all alone out in the woods. I knew he needed me before he knew it himself.

Wyatt with his hidden dimples. Wyatt with his warnings to stay away. He was a hard lump of coal, ready to burn everything around him. The more he burned, the more it pulled me into the pain I saw etched on his troubled face.

I wanted to help Wyatt. I wanted to save him like he had saved all the Charlies in the world. He told me not to fall for him, but I did anyway. I fell hard and fast and deeply in love with Wyatt Caulfield.

But that was before I knew his secret.

my review

6 Stars

Sweet Jesus.  Waiting for Wyatt is a heartbreaking tale about finding love, learning to trust and how to heal after a tragedy… and it stole a huge chunk of my heart that I’ll probably never get back.  Emma and Wyatt’s story was absolutely beautiful and when I reached the last page of this book, I think I felt as sad as Wyatt did all the times that Emma left at the end of their visits.

When Emma steals her neighbor’s dog (she might be a little impetuous), it lands her in the middle of nowhere and in a situation that she isn’t sure how to deal with.  Because Wyatt might be the most despondent and lonely person she’s ever meet.  She doesn’t want to save him from whatever makes him live an isolated life, she just wants to shine a little light onto his darkness and be his friend.

Here’s where I should gush about every romantic interaction between Wyatt and Emma, from that their first kiss to their last and how it made me feel. Or I should write about how consumed I was by their passion and connection. Maybe I should share one of the many sweet and enticing moments that made me swoon but I’m not going to.  Because honestly, you should experience every single moment for yourself, page by page as SD Hendrickson’s described it.  Wyatt and Emma’s story is one you need to hear in their words not mine.

I think that serendipity threw Emma in Wyatt’s life and it forever alters the course their lives were on forever.  Their story, Waiting for Wyatt was one of the best books I’ve ever read and that is why it is a top recommendation from me.  Go buy this book today.
