Shakuita Johnson has written a book that has left me absolutely speechless!! This book is absolutely AMAZING!! It showcases her talent as an author and storyteller. This is one book that you will ever forget!! This book is worthy of so much more than 5 stars!!

I don't know where to begin. This book has not only shattered my heart, but has opened my eyes to the unspoken pain that people suffer from every single day. Raven is the poster child for at tortured soul. All she wants is to be loved by the man that she loves....but clearly that is too much to ask for. She is a broken and fragile girl that no one wants to really take the time to help to help heal. It is obviously too much to ask...

Matthew is her best friend who loves her in his own way..but is not honest enough to tell her the truth about his feeling. He is too wrapped up in his own feelings and crazy to see what is right in front of him. He tries to do right by Raven...but he keeps missing the mark.

Remy...He is a selfish person who (in opinion) deserved everything that he got. I also think that got the best ending for his actions.

This book is extremely well written. It has 3 extremely complex and well developed characters. Ms Johnson has used her knowledge on not only mental heath issues but also life to give her readers a dark and gut-wreching story that will stick with them and pull out every emotion known to man. Trust me when I say that this book is a must read!!!

This book truly touched my soul. Shakuita Johnson has a way of making me feel every emotion in this story. Raven's immense love for Remy is so all consuming it keeps her from seeing the truth about their situation. With her dark secret she has, it has her teetering on the edge. Remy never wanted this type of devotion from any girl, especially not Raven Sinclair. He had his own rules and wasn' t changing them for anyone. 
Matt, well Matt is Raven's best friend, and secretly had his and Raven's life mapped out together. And no way was he going to let Remy fu**ing Peters destroy that! 
This is a must read read for anyone because it so heartbreakingly describes situations that I think happen more often then not. My soul was crushed at the end of this book and my eyes were puffy and swollen. Kudos to Miss Johnson!

***POSSIBLE SPOILERS***

This was a hard book to rate for me. It is a completely different read from the usual paranormal books I have come to know and love from Shakuita Johnson. Although still dark in nature, the subjects and subject matter are realistic to any one person that has firsthand experience or knows someone who has experienced any form of mental illness and/or suicide. This book struck a nerve with me as last November I lost someone to suicide. I applaud and appreciate the author's note placed in the book around character Raven and the reason why psychological issues were not addressed. I also congratulate Ms. Johnson for baring part of herself in this read and her willingness to tackle such serious matters.

While the story is fiction in nature, some aspects represent true to life elements showing the selfishness and ugliness within people. While I liked how three separate lives overlapped and intertwined, I wished the background of the characters were explained a bit more especially where Raven was concerned even though the author's note explained why. I didn't understand how/why she became a cutter and more so didn't understand her obsession with Remy. Reflecting on the story, I am now wondering if her obsession was not Remy himself, but his rejection of her. She was ok with his cheating way but once he broke it off hence rejection that's when things were weird. It just seemed Raven had more than Takotsubo cardiomyopathy aka broken heart syndrome.

I knew this was not going to end in a HEA but it was not until chapter 21 I predicted Raven's outcome. People should always be mindful of their tongue. Chapter 24 was the toughest chapter to get through as the letters Raven wrote broke my heart.

I hate to say it, but I really did not enjoy And So She Waited. I’ve read a couple of Ms. Johnson’s paranormal novels before and enjoyed them even when I didn’t care for her characters’ behavior. So I was really looking forward to seeing what she did with “real people” as opposed to paranormal beings. Fortunately the author’s writing style is still one I like and is the main reason this falls under the “just okay” rating instead of the “I hated it” rating.

*****POTENTIAL SPOLIERS*****

There wasn’t a sane person in the story. At the beginning I felt a little bad for Raven as it did seem that Remy led her on, but the book really needed a scene or two of Remy and Raven together to understand why she was so attached. Both she and Matt said that Remy never took her out or introduced her to friends, so her “love” seemed unfounded. I say “love” because as the story unfolds it seems that Raven’s love is merely a switch from one obsession (ballet) to another (Remy). As I said, I felt kind of bad for her in the beginning but any empathy for her was lost as the story moved on and she continued to try to contact Remy as he ignored her for two months. This is why I say her “love” was not love, but obsession. This was even more evident once she learned she was pregnant and insisted on telling him, thinking it would bring him back to her. Can anyone say delusional?

And let me just say that Remy is no prize nor is he the picture of mental health either. I know men like him exist and it absolutely amazes me that women not only put up with his treatment, but they actually flock to him. I was absolutely stunned that Stacey talked to him the day after they hooked up and completely appalled that she continued to see him based on her responses during that sexual encounter.
