Review of Waiting for Him by Lauren Simpson

“Lost and found.”


Genre: Romance

Length: 227 Pages

POV: Alternating First Person



I was doing just fine with my life. I had it all. A nice home, a good job, my family and friends. In a small town like Peachtree, that’s all you need right? That’s what I thought too, and then I met her.
She ran right into my life and turned it upside down. She’s gorgeous and made just for me. So what’s the problem? Well, an abusive fiancé is kind of a mood killer. When she needs my help in getting away from the one hurting her, I don’t hesitate. I know I need to protect her, but how can I convince her that I can? How can I make her believe that I want to be with her?
When our life together is threatened, I’ll do everything I can to make sure she’s safe. Even if it’s with my last breath.


My life was not my own. I was living every day thinking about how I could leave, how I could get away from his grasp. Fate had her own plans though. She landed me into this small town for a reason. I just didn’t know what that reason was until I met him.
Running into a fairy tale life seemed like the perfect remedy after all the crap I’ve been through. But how can it be real? Can I really let go of my past and move forward with my knight in shining armor?
When my choices are taken away from me, my worries don’t seem so important. He found me once, but how do I know he can find me again?

Officer Trent Mason meeting the beautifully damaged Charlotte Lexington was a fate run in. After he saves her from a terrible incident, they’re connection strengthens. They both have a past that’s holding them back from their future. Can they give in to their desires and put the past behind them? Or will the chance to explore their chemistry be taken away before they get the chance?

Due to the nature of the content and potential trigger warnings, not suitable for readers under 18 years of age.

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

Trent is a police officer who shares a house with his best friend/partner. He has a loving family, whom he has dinner with every week. Overall, he is content with his life. A fact that changes the moment he stares down into the eyes of a woman who literally ran into him. An instant connection that changed his contention into desire and need.

“I would give my life just to protect her, I know that much for certain.”

Charlie’s life wasn’t what she had envisioned for herself. Her parents died in a car accident leaving her without any family. All she had was an abusive fiancé who made her so dependent that she couldn’t leave him even though she wanted to. That all changed with one neighbors call to the police station. When her knight with a shiny police badge walked in and rescued her.

Waiting For Him is a fast-paced love story filled with sleezy ex’s, unexpected betrayals, and a family that gives strength and support to all who are a part of it.

“If you’re mine, then you’re theirs. Simple as that.”

Did I think a few parts were cheesy? Most definitely. Did I possibly gasp and find myself holding my breath at moments? Oh my goodness YES! But would I recommend it to you to read? If abuse isn’t a trigger for you, then yes, by all means read it.

Trent is the most supportive guy that everyone wishes they had in their lives. He alone (and me imagining him in uniform) would have been enough for me to enjoy the book, but it also had a lot of supportive characters that I couldn’t help but love too.
