While I read a of of books, I don't usually recommend to others but this is a series I HAVE recommended to friends.
Naomi is a wealthy hotel heiress who should want for nothing, but the family business and fortune don't appeal to her. What she wants most is the freedom to choose her own path and see where it leads. But, used to succumbing to her fathers wishes, Naomi can only watch as her husband is selected, plans for a wedding are underway, and her destiny to take over the family business is set in motion. That is until she meets Jon Stone, a famous rock star from California. The two are completely smitten and Naomi finally sees an opportunity to be free. Will she find what she's been searching for?
Having read (and loved) the Stone Trilogy, I was anxious to get a little more detail on Naomi's upbringing. There were times in the other books that I wasn't fond of her very much but, after reading Waiting for a Song I was able to understand why she was often secretive and protective of her feelings. I kept pleading with her to stand up to her father and refuse to live her life on his terms. The moment she finally gains the courage to flee I was ecstatic. Like Naomi, I was fearful her father would track her down and drag her home, but my heart was overjoyed when Naomi was finally able to experience true love.
I enjoyed Waiting for a Song and learning more about the characters I became so connected to throughout the series. The story is full of detail and wonderfully written making it difficult to put down. I am looking forward to reading The Rosewood Guitar, Jon's Story next.
I highly recommend picking up a copy of Waiting for a Song.
Enter Jon Stone, an international rock star with the heart of a poet. On a whim, Naomi sends him some lyrics she's written after hearing him sing on the radio. In no time the two have met, and fall in love. When Naomi decides to follow Jon on tour and ultimately back to California, the reader can't help but cheer for these two star-crossed lovers. Especially, when Naomi is evasive about her background and doesn't tell Jon the truth about her life of privilege and wealth.
The story flows like a song, with writing that immerses the reader in each scene through the strong emotional draw of the characters. The author's writing style is beautifully lyrical and layered with international flair. I felt like I lived and breathed the air of Europe through the many scenes set there, and the author's command of descriptive passages. This isn't a typical "rock star" romance but a story of love that burns innocent and bright, set against the backdrop of the music industry and Naomi's life of privilege.
I eagerly look forward to reading the author's entire series Stone series. I'm thoroughly and blissfully hooked!
