Waiting for the One

Saffron Mills has lived all of her almost thirty years in Harrington, Maine—a small town where fishing is plenty, but available men are far too few. Yet it’s not just her dating dry spell that draws her to recent arrival Logan MacGowan. Tall, dark, and handsome, with emerald-green eyes and an impossibly hot body, Logan is a gorgeous enigma whose silence she takes for indifference…until one unforgettable chance meeting, when pent-up attracti...

  • Geri Reads
    1.5 stars!Based on the blurb alone, this has 5-star potential written on it. I mean, a small town girl living in nowhere town befriended and eventually falling in love with the mysterious new guy in town who happens to be a world-famous sculptor running from his life in the spotlight sounds awesome, right? Well, apparently not. The first 15% or so was great. The heroine was snarky and the hero, as expected, was dark and brooding. I liked how they...

    Maybe we all deserved the shrimp after all...I'm a big L.A. Fiore fan, she always gives me 'extra' and does it with 'hidden gems' that keep me up all night because I can't stop reading. This author's gift is taking my fave genre and adding some 'extra spicy' and some 'spectacular suspense' that gives my mind a workout as I try to unravel the clues that I know will end in a surprising conclusion. I really enjoyed Saffron's quirky personality and s...

    I'd like to start this review by stating that I loved this author's Beautifully Damaged series.As far as Waiting for the One is concerned, I should have thrown in the towel when I struggled to get through this and still had 2.5 hours of listening left. Ah, hindsight. This actually started off in a very promising manner, but once the female and male lead started talking to each other (after maybe 15 or 20%), it went downhill quickly, and unfortuna...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 StarsWhat an excellent read! I fell in love with the story line almost instantly.The idea of a small fishing town where young available men, were few and far between was very intriguing. I just had to find out more. I just adored Saffron. She was close to her 30th birthday and was looking for the one. But, each guy she ends up dating, ends up being a dud. She is just about to give up her search, until one encounter with Logan, ...

    Just a tad unrealisticI liked the story, but it all was just unrealistic. I never really felt the connection between Logan and Saffron. I was right along with the tabloids in what would he see in her? Plus she was a bartender that after she met Logan never went to work and could afford a house. She took extended breaks from work too.Good storyline, but I guess in fiction land anything is possible.

    1.5 to 2 not so much stars! Source: eARC for Honest Review Courtesy of Montlake via NetGalleyI loved Beautifully Damaged and Beautifully Forgotten so I jumped at the chance to read this book and I have to admit I was sadly disappointed with it. It was to perfectly clean cut and missed some oomph from the story. It was also another story about a woman who has insecurities and instead of talking chooses to run away instead. As most of you know late...

    DNF at 65%This is my opinion and why it did not work for me. The narrator Cris Dukehart was awful. Almost whiny in the end.I tried and I mean TRIED to like this story,but this characters were idiots. The heroine is almost 30 years old and she is all over the place with her thoughts.The heroine jumps to conclusions which I don't mind in stories, but it is the way she handles them. She acts like she is in HS. The way she handled the situation in th...

    I first read L.A Fiore's Beautifully Damaged series and loved them so when I saw this book and read the blurb I knew I had to read it. I was immediately drawn into Saffron's life. The writing was phenomenal. I was completely and utterly engaged in Saffron's tale. She was caring and nurturing and absolutely hilarious. I laughed out loud a lot during this book. I adored the challenge she faced with Logan when she first met him. L.A was a genius in ...

    3.5 StarsReview by Natasha GentileI Loved the beginning this story. I thought it was quirky. Saffron Mills has lived all of her almost thirty years in Harrington, Maine—a small town where fishing is plenty, but available men are far too few. Saffron is a little different, she is funny, she is loving and she really made me want her to fall in love. Enter Logan MacGowan. Tall, dark, and handsome, with emerald-green eyes and an impossibly hot body...

    I could just say I ADORE this author and you have to read this book, but if I were to post this on Amazon, I myself would mark it as NOT helpful so I will go on.I ADORE this author and you have to read all her books.Hah, hah, me being funny on a day a work where I have no work to keep me busy. So that bit of silliness out of the way, Saffron Mills is just about one of the best darn heroines I’ve read. I’ve come to really appreciate how very w...

    July 2017 -- 2 StarsSo, I stopped reading this one at 60%. It just didn't pull me in and keep me engaged. It had its moments and so I kept plugging away, but pssss .. ssss .. ttt.Have you seen those movies where you see a leaf blowing between scenes .. [float . float . float]. The transition between scenes, the depth of the characters and their interactions with each other was lacking.So, it lost me. I require well drawn characters with depth and...

    >If you’re looking for quirky, fun characters and a sweet HEA, then you’ve found the right book. Saffron is a small town girl who hasn’t had a date in uhhhh, like forever? After a point, you sort of stop counting, right? Anyway, her pickings are slim after she takes into account the male + single + DECENT PERSON calculation. She’s super attracted to Logan, but he won’t talk to her. He’s been in town for six months, he talks to other p...

    Wow!! Logan and Saffron are the ultimate love story!So I started this a long time ago and life got in the way of me finishing it as quickly as I wanted to but I always thought about it and always read a little more here and there. Logan is a beautiful man that stole my heart from the first glimpse of him in that bar. Saffron is one of my favorites. She's funny and passionate but she has a heart of gold.The banter between these two adds a tension ...

    4.5 stars.Why haven't more people read this book? This is everything cont. romance should be. Saffron was sassy,smart, and loving. Logan! Holy moly I love that man. It had just the right amount of funny and heat. There was a dramatic element that emerged towards that I wasn't expecting. I loved this story big time.
  • Jennie
    Great book!!! Good story, lovely characters, great lines. Funny, interesting, sad. A really well written, long, complete novel. This author is one of my favourites. Lovely to read a novel that has obviously been proofread and edited by professionals. So nice to read and get immersed in a story and not be distracted by mistakes.

    *spoilers**trigger* death of supporting cast, ow, child abuse A good book for me not only has an interesting story, but also the right words to evoke poignant emotions. Fiore's writing works for me and I love to immerse in her story and get all the feels. While this book has the latter component still, I cannot say much about the storyline itself as it really is a bit silly and extreme and not too realistic in my book.Promising storyline as I tot...

    like having an allergic reaction to swordfish...itchy, kinda rushed and confused. Ok, maybe that's a stretch. Back to the review: spoiler alert!There were moments of plot hope that sparkled briefly but quickly faded. Nothing really made logical sense. The best character and addition to the story dies pretty close to the beginning. The second best character is the damn dog for the love of Pete. The third best character is a Jessica Rabbit inspired...

    Escape into my Reads Book Blog Waiting for the One was a fun read. Saffron’s character was easily relatable in her quest to find the one. Living in a small fishing community where men are few Saffron faced the worries any single woman thinks about in finding true love. I loved how she stayed true to herself and knew what kind of relationship she deserved. Logan was the silent mysterious hero who would observe Saffron from afar. The spark when t...

    3-3.5 starsFür den Anfang hätte ich "Waiting for the One" auf jeden Fall 5* gegeben. Logans Auftreten und ihr Kennenlernen fand ich super :D Logans und Saffrons Romanze war zwar zeitweise problematisch (aber das war ihre eigene Schuld), dennoch schön und das Ende toll. Allerdings gab es ab der Hälfte zu viel unnötiges, übertriebenes Drama, das die Autorin auf jeden Fall hätte vermeiden können und das mir einfach zu viel des Guten war. Es ...
  • Michelle Finkle
    I enjoyed this book. It's your typical formula beach read, but I loved the characters. The author did show her hand a little too much though. I would have preferred more angst and mystery, but the characters were great and the story contained all the elements I enjoy.
  • Yasmin Vasquez
    Ok I loved this book also apparently LA Fiore was something I just discovered now I'm hooked! Loved Saffron and her whimsical self and Logan the total alpha.

    I need some time to let this book soak in! It definitely made me laugh and cry and I loved it!

    1.5 Stars Ok this would have been a 3 or more stars but at 84% I was over this book.....There was a better direction she could have taken this book but it stop being a believable story line for me....I love the chemistry between Logan and Saffron but at some I stared skipping over the love scenes....
  • Jenny
    Wanted a light beach read and kindle reviews were good. Book was not. Shallow characters and manipulative story. Not my type of book.
  • Debbie
    I read this book through Kindle Unlimited. I had high hopes since Beautifully Damaged by this author is one of my favorite books. This was almost a dnf for me. There wasn't a lot of spark or chemistry between the characters and the story line wasn't all that interesting. There were to many things going on and less about the main characters to make this really work. You have Logan the 35 year old famous artist who is beyond hot and was at one time...

    What an astounding read or listen I should say! I picked this one up a while ago when Audible was having a sale, and I finally got the chance to listen to it. I wish I would had sooner. I fell in love from the beginning.I think it was Saffron's personality that drew me in from the beginning. Her quirky behavior made me laugh consistently. When Logan enters the little town bar she works at, and he doesn't speak, she sees it as a challenge to make ...

    Oh, I feel bad that I didn't love this book despite the hero being named Logan. I was so bent on loving this, but no...Okay, I guess I was a bit primed by the reviews, which made me not love this. But while I understood how this one isn't a favorite of most, I also learn that this has something special in it.Saffron is in a dating drought considering she's dated most people in her small town. So when she spotted the new guy, Logan, her interest i...

    I received a complimentary book from Net Galley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.This book takes place in a small fishing town in Maine where there are very few available men. This is important because it is the catalyst for several important parts of the plot. The heroine, Saffron Mills, has lived here all her life. She is almost 30 and feels it is time to settle down and have a family.The hero, Logan MacGowan, is a very handso...

       Waiting for the One, L.A. FioreGenre:  RomanceReview from Jeannie Zelos book reviews I love L.A.Fiore’s writing. Some authors write books in a genre that are so similar it feels like reading the same story, but with new characters – you know the sort, where men are alpha males and either bikers, monosyllabic and demanding, tattooed, bad boy MMA types, or rich, suave businessmen. They’re almost cut and paste characters. Nothing wrong...
  • Denise Vasak
    There was A LOT going on in this book, but you kind of knew there would be because the author gets to the good stuff like 10% into the book. You think... " where are we going from here?" So I'm of two minds - my biggest gripe was that ALLLLL of these "challenges" that keep popping up resolve in practically the next breath. Really? Come on, but then there are bits and sections that are just delightful. The beginning is great, the funny scene that ...

    "In my lifetime, I have never seen a more perfectly put-together body, and isn't it just my luck that the body belongs to the one man in town who makes avoiding me a full-time job? Life just isn't fair."When I read the synopsis, I knew I had to read this book! I enjoy stories about people that have alternate egos, sort of speak. This one did not disappoint!Saffron enjoys her day-to-day life living in the small, and I mean small, town of Harringto...
