Book Description

When a virgin frustrated by her nonexistent dating life asks a playboy for a one-night stand, can they really ignore their attraction after the affair?

After Tasha Smith is dumped yet again because of her virginity, she decides it’s time to stop saving herself for marriage and start dating like women in the twenty-first century. She sets out to find a man rumored to be good enough in bed to relieve her of the nuisance, but discreet enough to keep her request a secret.

Jared Patterson seems like the perfect candidate. Yet after one searing kiss, she wonders if she’ll escape a night with him unscathed. Jared’s job as a successful fitness instructor and entrepreneur has helped him keep a string of meaningless relationships from the east to the west coast. After learning the hard way that women can’t be trusted, he has no qualms going from one sex-only relationship to the next. Although Tasha is one of the few types of women he avoids - a good girl - the man in him can’t turn down her tempting offer.

What starts out as a onetime thing quickly turns into an affair neither want to stop. But when an unexpected situation drastically alters their relationship, it leaves them both asking if it was Worth the Wait.

Sensuality Level: Sensual

Editorial Reviews


"WORTH THE WAIT is a great contemporary romance with fresh young characters that readers will certainly enjoy. The plot is conventional but Synithia Williams manages to put an innovative spin that makes it fun and appealing. WORTH THE WAIT is thoroughly entertaining, scandalously funny and a modern take on old fashion values." -Romance in Color

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! January 9, 2013
By DeeDee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a good book!!! I bought it yesterday morning and started reading it at lunch, then again on the Metro on my way home. I was supposed to come in from work, change clothes and exercise for about an hour, but when I tell you I could NOT put this book down! I kept saying one more chapter, just one more. I looked up and it was 8:15 and I was sitting on the side of my bed, still in my work clothes. That's when I know that a book is GOOD! From reading the blurb about the book, I thought I knew what would happen, but dang if Ms. Williams didn't take us on a ride to get there! Tasha was a sweetheart, and she truly did a number on poor, unsuspecting Jared. He didn't know which way was up! Loved it!!! I was unfortunately on the Metro this morning when things started to go south between them - eyes and nose just running! I know the poor guy sitting next to me thought I was crazy as I'm wiping my eyes and frantically searching for tissue in my bag.

I must admit, I doubted that Ms. Williams could top the desk scene from You Can't Plan Love (still re-reading that one!), but the first time that Tasha and Jared get together didn't disappoint. This one was pretty steamy, which is definitely a plus.

Interesting exchange between Shayla and Devin; wonder if they will have a story sometime soon? *fingers crossed*

Great characters, really good story, lots of heat - the makings of a can't- miss read. Keep up the good work, ma'am!

5.0 out of 5 stars WORTH THE WAIT - WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD! January 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Tasha Smith is the quintessential "good girl." A Preacher's Kid who has been taught abstinence all her life, and the golden rule of saving her virginity for the marriage bed since she was old enough to know what sex was all about. Her hope had been to find a man who wanted her for more than just a romp in the hay, to be married and start a family, but all of the above somehow manages to elude her. Angie, her sister and most of Tasha's other friends have managed to find love and settle down, but Tasha is on the cusp of turning thirty and no Mr. Right is in sight. Well, she thought he might be when she goes on a date with Charles "Mr. Wrong" Worthington, who tells her that if she wasn't giving it up, it wasn't going to work out for him.

This date from hell is the proverbial straw that breaks the camel's back. Tasha emerges from that experience determined to get the monkey of virginity off her back. She convinces herself that if she sleeps with a man and rids herself of her pesky cherry, she'll be able to cross that hurdle and move on to find love and commitment. And Tasha knows just the guy to help her out of her little situation. Her friend, Jared "sex-on-legs" Peterson, is a man whose picture is next to the definition of "man whore" in the dictionary. He's an Atomic Dog to the tenth power, and because he has such a wealth of experience, Tasha is certain his technique is just the ticket to provide her with a memorable (and exceedingly pleasurable) first time.

After some cajoling, she manages to enlist Jared to do the job, and they agree that no strings will be attached and this one-time occurrence will be the extent of their involvement. Now we all know what they say the road to hell is paved with, right?

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute Story March 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought the story had promise but it wasn't anything original and I wished it had more development of the characters. Also too many typos had me screaming for it to end, maybe something happened while downloading but that took away from the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!!! January 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is another great book by this author. Tasha and Jared's story was a beautiful story. Talk about a playboy falling hard. Jared was the ultimate playboy and he fell hard. It was great catching up with the people from the first book and I look forward to reading more from this author. I have a feeling that Devin and Shayla will get their own story. I hope so. There is something there between those two.

3.0 out of 5 stars Virgin Mary July 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Tasha is a young, beautiful, confident, faithful church girl. She is also a virgin saving herself for marriage. Dating is not her forte and she frequently dates LOSERS that only want sex. Tasha decides to make a life changing decision that includes a fine, sexy bachelor, Jared Paterson. He is a single business owner and health trainer that takes Tasha on a journey that will change her life forever. Together, Tasha and Jared discover more about themselves than anticipated.

Synithia Williams' "Worth the Wait" was a romantic and fairy-tale like story. There were some grammatical and spelling errors throughout the story. It wasn't a bad read, but I wanted/expected more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Such a fast delightful read June 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first time I read the blurb for Worth the Wait by Synithia Williams, I decided to buy the book on the spot and I am so glad I did. The concept of Tasha losing her virginity to a player like Jared (who was too hot for my own good) sounded like a disaster from beginning to end, and it was. The drama of the situation made for a great romance.

Tasha's naïveté into going into a purely sexual relationship with Jared was understandable, if not weird considering that she had saved her virginity for so many years. Her plan would have worked if Jared hadn't behaved in such a manner that was opposite his player status. Oh yeah, I must not forget the little twist that Ms. Williams planted to also destroy her chances of staying uninvolved with Jared. I don't do spoilers so my lips are sealed.

The one thing I didn't appreciate about the book was the emphasis on Tasha's virginity, especially by her father. He made it seem as if his daughter's greatest accomplishment in life was saving her virginity. This annoyed me because Tasha had done a lot of great things with her life.

If you are looking for a novel you will want to read in one sitting because the story is good, the writing is smooth, and you need to find out how it ends, then this book is for you.
