This book doesn't have a lot of angst like Susan Mac Nicol's previous 2 books, but both Toby & Rain have secrets & issues from their pasts. Toby grew up in the foster care system from the time he was 10 years old & he was bullied by the kids in the last home he was in, causing him to act out & end up in the juvenile delinquency system. He has a lot of anger issues & manages to control it unless provoked, like when a homophobe bully attacks him because he blames Toby for his girlfriend breaking up with him. Rain also has issues because of something that happened to him at a party months before & an ex-boyfriend that wants to get back together with him after leaving him to go live in Monte Carlo.
Susan Mac Nicol did an awesome job by writing this story from the POV of both Toby & Rain, alternating each chapter between the two. It was very well written & also had a lot of hot sex! Highly recommend it!!
Toby Prentiss has a tortured history that leaves him with a record of poor choices and problems with anger management. Yet, with the help of a man who becomes his mentor, he rises above situations that would have crushed other men.
Rain Engel had his heart torn in two. It makes him wary of relationships but not taking those first steps to satisfy his attraction to Toby Prentiss, the general manager of the hotel where he is employed as a contractor. Rain is no shrinking violet. He knows what he wants and he doesn’t mind expressing himself in rather unique ways.
Their small village is bucolic, quirky and—on the surface—lacking in choices when it comes to potential gay partners. It also has a bounty of vociferous homophobes, some downright nasty and dangerous.
The large cast of supporting characters provides a wonderful backdrop to Toby and Rain’s tentative steps on that path of discovery. From the farmer who solicits help thwarting a sheep rustler to the BFFs of Toby and Rain, and the sometimes bittersweet attraction between Toby and Simon, his boss and mentor … each one adds breadth and depth to the story, along with many humorous moments.
And call them what you will—the setting, props, even the weather—all contribute in delightful ways to bring this story to life. There’s a phobia, a shed, a pole, a sauna, a haystack, leather products, a drought, a festival … each and every one an integral part of Toby and Rain’s journey. They provide the kind of feel-good moments that make a story sigh-worthy and memorable.Read more ›
As with all Susan Mac Nicol books I have read, Waiting For Rain is laugh out loud funny, witty, and sexy as hell! And although not a sad story, there was a moment of sadness that had me almost in tears!
Toby and Rain have an instant and electrifying chemistry. They also both harbor sordid pasts and secrets that if kept hidden could possibly ruin their future together.
Love how Susan always writes about strong men having overcome adversity. This story is no different.
Toby and Rain are yummy! Did I mention Rain is a sexy carpenter that likes to pole dance? If only novels came with streaming video, I'd be golden!
"You are so bloody sexy. I want to wear you."
There's also a supporting cast of friends that brought lots of humor and tenderness to the mix.
"What is it with you straight women and your fascination with gay-man sex?"
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, especially all the British lingo I as an American don't hear everyday! Words like bloody, git, and bollocks!
Thank you Susan Mac Nicol for another great read!

Susan Mac Nicol writes very hot, very steamy sex scenes. And this book is full of them.
Unfortunately, the story itself is quite complicated and feels very disjointed. Read more
