Have you ever had a secret that weighed on you so heavily you felt as though you might crumble from the burden of it?

I’ve been lying to all of my loved ones for months now, lying right to their faces. I know at some point the truth will have to come out, but I’m dreading that day with every fiber of my being. I don’t want to hurt anyone, especially Jeff, my fiancé.

My past and present are at war, pushing and pulling me in two different directions and sooner or later I’m going to break. How do I choose between the two men I love?

Garrett, my ex, who disappeared from my life without a trace has now returned. He claims he still loves me and he wants me back.

Jeff, the man I’m engaged to marry built our relationship on lies, but he proves to me every single day how much he loves me.

Are the mistakes of the past too much for me to move on from or can I find a way to forgive one of them?

Maybe it’s time for me to start with a clean slate and just focus on me.

 really liked it
"Well, I'm referring to the fact that you're knocked up and you don't know who the father is. It's all rather Jerry Springer don't you think?"

I'm not sure how I feel about this book. I am a little all over the place now that it's ended and I feel just like her judgemental brother...Shelby is five months pregnant and unsure who the father is. Her first love who deserted her when things got a little challenging has now returned and after a quick fumble may be the dad. She's currently engaged and living with Jeff, the second man to capture her heart. Caught between her feelings for these two men she is unsure of who she wants and how she really feels. Once she reveals the big secret these two men spend four months in limbo and they all deal with the emotional rollercoaster differently. Both men love her and nurture the hope of bring one big happy family with her stepping up to try and be the man she chooses. Throughout the story Shelby remains the one in control and she has two men fighting over her as they both feel deeply for her. Usually it's the sexy as hell lead man that is juggling the interest of multiple woman but in this story there is a role reversal and Shelby is the one who gets to pick and choose. Throughout the story I think we see her come to terms with her emotional baggage, deal with her past and reconnect with the woman she has grown into. Yet along that road she also crosses that line with Jake. And I think that's the final straw for me as he was collateral damage in her battle to find her happily ever after. For me, Shelby was selfish and took without giving. Although she had been hurt and manipulated by those she had loved and trusted, she in turn inflicted the same pain on others that didn't deserve it. She is no innocent unenthusiastic story either and for some reason I just couldn't empathise with her. That being said this story is well written with a very well portrayed love triangle it has angst, emotion and hope throughout and I guess it's my own personal dislike for the subject that has clouded my opinion of Shelby. Waiting For Him has a surprising conclusion, one I was not expecting as there is so much water under that particular bridge! Overall I think if you are a fan of love triangles and blurred lines then this is a five star read. This series is a must read for those that love this genre. For me I'm too much like her brother and felt it was a little too cavalier with people's hearts, hopes and dreams.

A four star I need whatever perfume she wears read.

~*~ Obsessed by Books copy given in exchange for an honest review ~*~

“What are you so happy about? I just told you what a disaster my life has become and you think it’s funny?” I ask as I poke his rock hard stomach. He catches my hand with his and uses it to tug me forward. I stumble into him awkwardly, landing against his chest. His arms slide around me, resting low on my waist...dangerously low...almost into ass territory low. Both of my palms are flat against his chest and it’s difficult for me to resist the urge to slide them down his stomach and back up under his shirt. His skin would be scorching hot on my hands as I slowly traced his defined abdominal muscles. Stop it. Focus. My eyes raise up to meet his and there’s an answering smirk playing around the right corner of his lips as if he knows I was lost in lust filled thoughts of him.
