Book Review: Waiting For You by Shey Stahl


 Waiting For you By Shey Stahl

292 pages

Published February 21st 2013 
Available on Amazon.com

Can a split decision change your life? Can a road trip with a with an old friend be the one thing you needed to find yourself? Bailey had a very structured life. She knew what she had to do because that was what she was told. She had the perfect life, family, friends and boyfriend but that was not enough. She needed to be out in the world on her own, completely free. This is a great story of self discovery, independence and romance. 

Dylan was a bad boy that had a troubled past but a good and passionate heart. Shey Stahl did such an amazing job writing her characters, we went through the emotions they did...when they are happy, i was happy, when they cried, I cried. 

This was a story about living your life, making mistakes and finding happiness, being good to yourself instead of appeasing all others and being miserable, just letting loose, feeling alive and finding your true soul mate.
 

Goodreads.com Description:

Bailey Gray is tired of her perfectly planned life. Everything about her life has been organized and lived out to the expectations set of her parents. She is the class valedictorian, has perfect grades, the perfect friends, a perfect boyfriend, basically perfect life...or so everyone thought. That's when she realizes the path planned isn't always the path chosen.

On graduation day she makes a decision. One that changes everything she thought she knew about her intended future.

On a whim, she runs away with the town rebel, Dylan Wade, in search of the unknown.

Dylan Wade isn't looking to run away from anything.

He knows what he wants as he's been waiting on it for years.

On a journey to find the unknown, they discover a friendship they once knew along the open highway and have not a care in the world. Between the yellow and white lines of the heated summer asphalt, a spark draws them together as Dylan's past and Bailey future try to ripe them apart.

Could it be that Dylan and his GTO are exactly what her perfectly planned life needs



My Favorite Book Quotes:

"I believe that people come into your life and then some go. I also think there’s a purpose as to why they were in your life at all. Each one takes a piece of you when they go. Some leave pieces of themselves with you. Sometimes it’s wisdom, or maybe, it’s a lesson."

"I wanted to feel the freedom he felt, unpredictable freedom. I wanted to be out of control and I wanted to be a rebel. I wanted a sunrise, an opal sun dripping from the sky, with a new day where anything was possible and the sunset was unknown."  

“Dylan wasn’t a rebound or distraction. No. He couldn’t be. Not Dylan. Like I said, you don’t just fall for someone like Dylan Wade. You bleed for someone like Dylan Wade.” 





Wrapped In You (Waiting For you Book 2) Coming this Fall 2013

Can Bailey see that their deal can't be broken despite the revenge set forth by her family?

Or will she run from the

only boy who has ever held her heart?
