As with every other one of K. Brombergs books you will not be able to put this one down. I read the entire book in less than 24 hours, which isn’t uncommon for me with Kristy’s books. I was lucky enough to be selected to receive an ARC for my honest review of this book. It was another 5 star read. Grayson is my favourite Malone brother. If you fell in love with Grant and Grady (who was my favourite Malone boy prior to this book) and high expectations for Grayson. Instantly I fell in love with him. Being a mom myself, there is nothing as sexy as watching a man be a father and play with his children. Kristy has a talent to her that allows her words to come to life. I could picture Grasyon playing with Luke in the opening chapter of the book and my heart melted. I loved the subtle call outs to Colton and Driven by K. Bromberg, at least I think they are call outs to the book that got it started for Kristy but maybe I just have Colton on the brain.
When I finished this book, I was disappointed that we’ve read the last book on the Malone boys, that I wasn’t going to see what happened after the epilogue. With Grant and Grady I knew we would get little glimpses into their life as they appeared in their brother’s stories (don’t worry, there’s no spoilers on the story within each book and they can be read independently and out of order) then I reached the final page of the book before the about the author and saw there was going to be another standalone from this Everyday Heroes series and I got hope that maybe Desi’s book, although her best friend is Emmerson, would give us a little sneak into Grayson and Sydney again. A girl can hope right?
I’m not one to cry while reading books but Worth the Wait brought tears to my eyes several times. My heart was ripped out of my chest more times than I can count. Out of all the books I’ve read, this one hit me hard. Although I’m not a single parent, I am a parent. I can relate with Grayson and how he wants to protect his son, Luke, from getting hurt after his mothers walks out of him and Grayson when Luke was an infant.
