Ready or not…love will find a way 

Single dad Hogan Guthrie is getting his life back on track, and working as the "barbecue master" at a local diner is just a temporary detour. He and restaurant owner Violet Shaw constantly butt heads…until one night they end up mingling other parts instead. Hogan thought he had the recipe for happiness all figured out. But loyal, carefree Violet is daring him to trust his impulses…and see just how sweet small-town living—and loving—can be.

Nathan Hawley traded his SWAT team credentials for a sheriff's badge, but a gorgeous new neighbor is shaking up his orderly life. Nathan has a hunch there's more to Brooklin Sweet than meets the eye—but given her caution about getting involved, he has his work cut out for him. Still, there's something about the elusive beauty Nathan can't walk away from—and helping her come to terms with her past might pave the way to the future they both secretly long for.

My Thoughts:  Worth the Wait is my favorite book thus far in this series.  I loved getting to know both Hogan and Violet better, as well as seeing characters from the first book, Don't Tempt Me, in which we originally met both Violet and Hogan.  Hogan has been through the ringer and has since developed quite the reputation for himself, and Violet is a force to be reckoned with.  Fate kind of throws them together and lets just say things get hot and not just on the barbeque grill.   I also really loved Hogan's son teenage son Colt, who plays a big part in the story as well. 

Along side Hogan and Violet's story, we also get to experience Nathan and Brooklin's story.  Being the Sheriff, Nathan can't help but notice his hot new mysterious neighbor, and despite her reluctance, he is determined to wear her down.  His persistance pays off and Brooklin warms up to him, but her past also threatens not only her, but her new friends.  This adds a feeling of danger and suspense to the story, which interweaves into Hogan and Violet's story as well.  

Lori Foster does an excellent job telling the stories and knitting them together beautifully.  I loved the romance and close friendship all the characters have, and the fact that they are all neighbors.  There is just the right amount of humor mixed in with the suspense and danger, and enough sizzle to serve up a delicious feast for fans of Lori Foster, and contemporary romance fans in general.  I enjoyed this book and definitely recommend it.
