Waiting On Forever by Ashley Wilcox
(Spin-off of Planning On Forever)
Parties, sororities and getting drunk.
Oh, yeah. And learning.
This may be true for most college students, but not for Leah Bennett. College life for her includes studying, working, and excelling in school. When it comes to the social ladder, Leah is at the bottom. Popular girls, hot guys and star athletes are of no importance to her, except for one.
Matt is the starting wide receiver at SUNY Cortland, the most wanted guy on campus and Leah's best friend. Although Leah's feelings towards Matt runs deeper than just a friendship, it is something she would never let be seen because the odds of someone like Matthew Jacobs going for someone like Leah Bennett are slim to none.
When Matt starts showing an interest in Leah that goes beyond friendship, she is dumbfounded and doesn't believe it is possible -- until one weekend that changes everything.
Will Leah and Matt's popularity status get in the way of having a chance at a real relationship?
Or does status means nothing when it comes to true love?
Ashley Wilcox wowed me with this book. I loved everything in this story.
Matt is a football star in college while Leah is the kind of 'loser' that studies a lot and is no interesting to anybody. Well, except Matt that is. Matt and Leah are best friends, but they mostly chat online, more like a pen pal online. They've seen each other around, but never really got time to hang out together.
So when Matt moved to Leah's french class, their relationship turns into more than just friendship. Leah'd always been crushing on Matt, but since she's the loser and he's the college's star, their relationship won't work.
This book was very refreshing, a story of true love and status. I loved everything. I love the way Ashley describe the characters. Leah was a brave young woman. She didn't really care about how people look at her or talk about her, she's just focusing on the fact that she needs to study, get good grades and how to not show that she has feelings for Matt.
Status in true love doesn't really matter, actually, it doesn't matter AT ALL! That was the message behind this book and I have to say, I love the message.
Ashley completely wowed me throughout the book. She doesn't go into too much detail so it didn't drive me crazy, she doesn't leave things unexplained. Her writing was exactly the sort of writing I love.
Can't wait to see what Ashley has in store next.
