Waiting For Love by Lacey Black Review



* * * * * * * * * *


Dear Love Vixen,
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.

Good luck, hon!
The ♥️Vixen

I love Lacey Black. She writes wonderful small-town romances, and they’re some of my favorite stories to read. Waiting For Love, an enemies to lovers romance featuring two neighbors, is Lacey Black’s addition to the multi-author Love Vixen series.

I loved the evolution of Theo and Penelope’s relationship so much! They had that frenemies vibe, but there was definitely attraction sizzling below the surface. Their back-and-forth bantering was snappy and quick-witted and basically its own special brand of foreplay. Lacey has a great sense of humor, and she shares it liberally throughout this story. One of the hallmarks of Black’s writing is that she creates these wonderful communities, full of interesting side characters, and it truly makes for a rich and vivid background.

Lighthearted and low angst, Waiting For Love was a sweet and steamy feel-good romance that I devoured in a single sitting. It was engaging, entertaining, full of charming and endearing characters with a sexy, slow-burn romance, and I enjoyed every word of it! Lacey Black’s Waiting For Love gets 4.5 smooches from me!
