You know the saying “always a bridesmaid, never a bride?” That’s me. I’ve stood beside six best friends, with the seventh to marry the man of her dreams in less than a month. I’ve tried everything, from dating apps to websites that promise to find you deep, meaningful love, only to set you up with a dud who leaves you with the whole check. So, I’m done. Throwing in the towel. Over dating. I’m just going to sit here and wait for it to show up on my doorstep like pizza delivery. I’m… Ugh! Sorry, my neighbor is horrible! I wish you could hear how loud and annoying he is. He’s the worst, even if he is slightly gorgeous. The problem is… he knows it. Anyway, back to my issue. I’m tired of looking for love in all the wrong places! (Wow, cue Johnny Lee.) Help!
Waiting in Washington
Dear Lady in Waiting,
You’re going about this all wrong. Don’t think of it as giving up. Think of it as the perfect time to do some inner soul-searching and find out exactly who you are and what you have to offer those you love. You know I always say, you’ll never find love until you find yourself.
Sweetie, I wish I could tell you a timeline, but there isn’t one. Finding true love could take years or it could be closer than you think.
Waiting For Love is Lacey Black’s story in the The Love Vixen series. A series of twelve stories surround The Love Vixen podcast. I have read all of Lacey’s books and have loved them all. This one is all about neighbors and fate.
Penelope enjoys her time at home. She lives in a small town and has a cute little house with a big garden. She enjoys her quiet and works from home as a buyer for a toy store. She has given up dating after her dates have been dud after dud. She is the last of her college group to find love. She is just over it. She even wrote the Love Vixen for advice and she gave her some good feedback. She needs to do some soul-searching! It would be a lot easier if her noisy-ass but gorgeously annoying neighbor would keep it down in his garage. She also needs to get ready for a wedding weekend. Another wedding where she is a bridesmaid and this time she is the only single one. Fun times, right?
Theo doesn’t even want to date. He just wants to work in his shop and get under his hot neighbor’s skin. That is all he needs. He doesn’t know what her problem is but when she gets upset, it just turns him on. He might have a little crush on her. Maybe. One he needs to get over. Stat. Maybe he should think about dating, after all.
Omg! These two. You could feel the sexual tension through the pages. This book is a slow-burn with the best foreplay. I wish I had time to read more books in the series and discover more authors. Hopefully one day it will happen.
“So, Penelope,” Mom asks, a huge smile on her face. “Do you like manicotti?”
His touch is like gasoline to an already burning fire. It engulfs, the flames spreading through my veins.
We both glance down at the same time and watch her cat circle my legs, rubbing her body along my pants. “She likes you more than she likes me,” Penelope observes.

Pain is etched across his face, and I just want to erase it. I thread my fingers through his and he clasps my hand firmly. “You were only a kid, it was an accident, and you weren’t the only one involved.”“None of that matters though.” He turns to me with tears in his eyes. “I still relive it all the time, and the guilt never goes away. I don’t think it ever will.”My eyes search his and I can’t bear to see him hurting, so I fling my arms around him, without any hesitation, holding him tight.Friends hug friends, right?He leans his head on my shoulder, and I wrap my arms tighter around him. “Some days, I think all the guilt I’m carrying will eat me alive. Some days, it’s a struggle to get out of bed. After I lost you, music became my only salvation. I honestly don’t know if I’d still be here if I wasn’t a musician.”“Don’t say that.” I hug him closer. “I can’t bear to think of a world without you in it.”“I can say the same of you, and I don’t ever want you to leave, Zeta, but I’m a selfish prick like that.”
Still Falling For You is Siobhan Davis’ newest emotionally charged second chance rock star love story. I have been following Siobhan’s writing for the last few years and each book touches my heart in some way or another. This one is no different. It’s about second chances and not just in the love department.
Ryder and Zeta met under difficult circumstances but their love was real. Until he had to leave her behind, confused and broken hearted. Ryder was just as devastated but thought it was the only way to keep her safe. They have never forgotten their connection. It’s embedding in them. She should hate him. He should walk away again. But he can’t. Now, that she is standing in front of him again, eight years later, he doesn’t want to let her go.
Life is full of choices. She could have said no but deep down she knew she wouldn’t. This is an opportunity to find out the truth about why he left. Why he has been acting like the biggest manwhore on the planet. Why she can’t forget about him. It’s also about her career. To live with his band while they record their newest album. To write a documentary. Will it all be worth it when she gets her answers?
I don’t want to spoil anything but I will say…what a fucking ride it was! There are two parts to the story and I loved that. It was like two books in one. It’s not an easy book but it was so worth it. The characters’ childhoods were hard ones. Their adult ones are still suffering for it. I thought the writing was spectacular. The characters real and raw. The side characters were sometimes sweet. Sometimes assholes. I do hope to see them again.
Overall…it was fantastic read full of twists, love, loss, second chances, and rock stars.
“Zeta,” he whispers, never taking his eyes off my face.
I love the way he rasps my name, and a throbbing ache starts building between my thighs. “What?” I whisper back.
“I think I need you in my life.” His eyes burrow deep into mine as he lifts his hand, extending it toward me. “Friends?”
“I never imagined you could have it all yet have nothing at the same time,” I muse, resting my head back.
“You knew the girl I was, but you don’t know the woman I’ve become.”
“That may be true, but I’d like to get a chance to know her.”
