Lydia and Jacob’s story comes together in Wishing for Us. Lydia has nothing in her live but the day to day bump and grind and her friends; so why does wake up in a Vegas hotel married to the smoking hot Jacob Hay? She has been lusting over him for months and now she is married to him. After three years of grieving the death of her fiance; does she take the leap and stay? Does she hold onto him and what she feels for this beautiful man? Is she ready for all that is in his life as well? No person comes without baggage, can they both weather each others?
The beautiful Lydia has not left Jacob’s mind or radar since changing her tire for her, now she is his wife. Even though this woman is giving him an out, he doesn’t want it. He needs her by his side. She is easily becoming everything to him. Can love grow from attraction? Can they build a lasting marriage once they learn everything about each other? Can this marriage be more than the lust and hot sex that they have found in each other? Can he allow her to become the person to whom he leans on in the tough times? Only time will tell.
Don’t worry you will get the closure on all the Danvers stories in Wishing for Us. More babies, marriages, crazy sex talk and more witty commentary from the beloved Suzy. Thou Mia is becoming a fast Favorite for me as well. Laugh and cry to the final novel in the Danvers Series
Jake is the hot baby Darryl is fighting for shared custody with his ex. Lydia is still mourning her first love who died of cancer. Their quickie marriage in Vegas based on both wanting to escape with someone they desired.
I wish there had been a bit more with Casey, his daughter, interacting with Jake and Lydia. Their parents finding out about the marriage was funny in the separate scenes.
But my fave parts were when all of the ladies got together to dish. So funny and so much fun. The camaraderie and the dirty humor had me laughing out loud.
The sex scenes are hot and explicit.
Another solid addition to the Danvers series with a couple of surprises along the way.
I adored Lydia and Jacob's slow but sizzling steps to love, but also thoroughly loved being immersed in the Danvers' world. One of my favorite spots came right at the end when I had the pleasure to glance at the amazing couples Landon had created. It feels like yesterday since I first read Weekends Required and began a wonderful journey into their world. Through Landon's mastery, they've become dear to my heart. I can't say goodbye yet, so am going back to the beginning.
If this is your first foray into Sydney Landon's writing, don't make it your last. A stunning journey awaits.
It is with much sadness that I read the final words of this book, but I look forward to with great anticipation to the Jackson Brothers.
Once again we find that love is sometimes unconventional and we don't always get what we think we deserve but we always get what we need. Sydney portrays this perfectly in the telling of Jake and Lydia.
I hope that you find this story and series as intriguing and wonderful as I have.

I knew I'd miss a few connections, since this is already book 9 in this series (and my first), but the blurb really interested me, I love shotgun weddings and I thought if it is a good standalone I can dive into the rest of the series. But all I got were thousands of names thrown around that confused me and talks with women that centered solely on penis sizes, sex and men. Yawn. This is getting so old and could not get me hooked enough to want to read more about them.
Also the characters and their relationship to others were really bland. Really interesting character stories were ignored or unoriginal. The behaviour of the hero rather childish at the end and not like a 34 years old man at all and about the heroine .... tbh I just finished the book but already forget about her. Did she even go to work one time? Was she employed? I don't even know anymore. And I can not deal with weak character building in a story that is NOTHING but character driven, since nothing else happens. I don't have high demands, I just wanted to pick up an easy, short read without high expactations, but this was not enough to even satisfy my basic needs for shallow entertainment.
