He was an angry teen following the death of his parents, leaving his three brothers and baby sister behind. It’s been over twenty years and now the Special Forces soldier has left the military, returning home to Norfolk, Virginia to see if he can make amends with his family. He’s attending his younger brother’s wedding when he sees Ava Bennett sitting alone. She’s a UN interpreter from New York, home to help out with her father following his knee surgery. She’s blind and one of his sister Hannah’s clients at her horse therapy farm for disabled children. Though she can’t see him, Ava is immediately as drawn to him as he is to her. Luke’s never been in a committed relationship but she’s struggling to overcome the breakup of her one and only. Let me first admit how much I love this series. It’s a sprawling family between the Walkers and McKinneys (Hannah’s married to a McKinney forming the bridge between the two). Luke is one of the brothers who’s the least known so I’ve always been intrigued by him. Though he’s quiet and not very good at sharing his feelings, Ava brings out the best in him. It was lovely seeing his transformation, which extended into Luke developing bonds with his own siblings. She, on the other hand, struggled with fully committing herself to the relationship given her baggage from her last experience. This was a lovely story, made even more interesting because of Ava’s disability. I learned a lot about how the blind can operate so independently as it was obviously well researched. There was so much to admire about her and her fierce determination to be self sufficient, which she was. It made for a beautiful love story as Luke fell for the woman and not her external beauty. And, through him, we got to see the world through hers, too. Lastly, reconnecting with all the siblings and their growing families was the perfect bow to tie around this story.

    After twenty long years away, Luke Walker is home for his brother Zach's wedding hoping to make amends and reconnect with the siblings he walked away from at age seventeen. Luke's at loose ends, a bit lost after his sudden decision to leave military life not knowing what his future holds.

Luke's at loose ends, a bit lost after his sudden decision to leave military life not knowing what his future holds. And then he meets UN interpreter Ava Bennet who's home for a few weeks to help her mother care for her father during his rehabilitation. Ava's been blind since birth and without the familiarity of her New York City surroundings and public transportation, she's dependent on others which she hates. Both Luke and Ava carry secrets and regrets - each choosing to remain alone rather than risk disappointment and hurt again. When the two share a dance at Zach's wedding, the connection and chemistry are immediate and intense. Waiting On The Rain is their story - tender, intimate, loving. But Happily Ever After? Highly unlikely. Claudia Connor's skill at weaving intimate, heartwarming love stories is evident in Waiting On The Rain. She excels at drawing readers' into the midst of large families - the gatherings, meals, rivalry between siblings, support system - where they quickly become entangled and hopelessly in love with the characters. I was immediately drawn to Luke - his fears, anxiety, regrets and the same with Ava with her own self-doubts and ghosts. I love that the author showcases Ava's strengths - her independence and ability to adapt in unknown situations as well as Luke's easy acceptance of her unique challenges. Waiting On The Rain is a beautiful story of two different people with two separate lives learning to trust each other against all odds as they fall in love when there's every reason in the world why it won't work. The relaxing quiet small town and open country setting is conducive to a transformation in both characters as they explore their feelings and question what they thought they wanted in a future even as they learn to put the past at rest. Can a city girl and a country boy make it work? Both have their doubts and fears to overcome. And yet . . . the chemistry and desire sparking between them is off the charts as are the bedroom scenes. Rest assured, Connor has no issue including steamy lovemaking into her happily ever after stories. Waiting On The Rain is low angst romance at its best. It's a touching, intimate and beautiful story of two people learning to let go of the past while finding the trust to build a future together. I read this book in one sitting as I just couldn't put it down once I met these characters and became engrossed in their lives. I highly recommend it to fans of romance as well as those who just enjoy a good, heartwarming story. *Many thanks to Author Claudia Connor for an arc of this book. **Reviewed at: Cross My Heart Reviews & Booksprout

Luke, a retired Army Ranger, came back home to reconnect with his brothers and sister but adapting to the civilian life isn't easy. Ava, an interpreter to the United Nations in New York, is back at home for a while to help his father with the post-operative exercises. Their lives intersect at Luke's little brother's wedding. They seem to be the only two people who stay away from the party, so when the beautiful woman approaches the biscuits table he goes to her to strike a conversation and he finds out she is also funny, witty other than beautiful. Luke and Ava feels immediately comfortable with each other, they have a great chemistry together but they are reluctant to act on their attraction because they come from different worlds and they bring a lot of personal baggage. Will they overcome their past trouble in order to enjoy their relationship? I've loved to follow Luke and Ava journey, and I've particularly appreciated how the grumpy ranger never made the blind woman feel less capable. Their relationship is unique and sweet and I couldn't not wish them the best for their lives. Once again Claudia Connor's writing made me deeply feel involved into the story of these characters, her words are never prosaic, they always bring a deep meaning without ruining the story flow. I hope to read next book in the series soon. Copy kindly provided by the Publisher/Author.

It's annoying and stalls the book too much. Also the separation at 90% that she absolutely seems to believe is required is just predictable and irritating. This book wasn't perfect but I definitely enjoyed it much more than the previous books in this series H wasn't a manwhore h has been divorced I believe for a year, we get a bit of her backstory with her ex and a few mentions of him to give a better understanding of what took place. He appears but not to get her back Tiny OW drama

Twenty years have gone by and he has returned home for his younger brother Zach’s wedding. While he is home he plans to help out his sister Hannah with setting up her riding camp. What he was not expecting was to meet Ava. Ava Bennet has recently been divorced and is temporarily staying with her parents for a few months. She has become great friends with Hannah and made connections with quite a few people in town. When she meets Luke at his brother’s wedding she is pleasantly surprised. She never imagined she would be asked to dance but somehow she finds herself up on the dancefloor with him. Luke is surprised to find out that Ava is blind, at first glance he would never have guessed that. This only makes her more intriguing to him. He enjoys talking to her and after just a few hours of getting to know her, he wants to know more. He feels inexplicably drawn to her for reasons he hasn’t figured out yet. “Do you think it’s going to rain?’ “I don’t know.” “That’s what I’m waiting on. It’s been a really long time since it rained.” Ava is beautiful, confident and independent. She may not have her eyesight but all of her other senses are on high alert when she is around Luke. Ava’s sense of smell and hearing help her make sense of what is going on around her. Luke has a renewed appreciation of all of the senses that he had taken for granted until now. Luke is very thoughtful with Ava. He enjoys giving her new experiences and when things move from friendship into something more he makes her feel beautiful and desired. Being with Luke is more than Ava could have imagined and he feels the same way too. “He hadn’t known, really known, what he’d been looking for when he came here. Peace maybe. Resolution with the family. But looking at Ava sleeping beside him he knew whatever it was he’d been looking for, he’d found it in her. And more than anything, he wanted to be the man she needed.” Ava is beginning to rethink her future plans but when something out of her control happens she doubts whether or not being with Luke is the right choice. Is it fair to burden him with the worry that he might not be able to count on her when it matters? Her time with Luke has been incredible but maybe it’s time to get back to her life in New York and let him move on with his. Luke may have the gift of sight but he seems to be blinded by his own stubbornness and pride. If he wants to win the girl he is going to have to up his game or face losing her forever. There is not a single story that Claudia has written that I haven’t loved and this story was no exception.

' ' There’d been a time when his hormones had raged and the thought of bridesmaids would have made him think good time. Now there was nothing raging. His blood didn’t run hot or cold. Sometimes Luke wondered if it was running at all.' He meets the heroine there not realising she's blind at first. The heroine. ' He made her smile. Surprising given the way she’d felt about men the past year.' ' “Because getting married is the last thing I would ever do. And if I want flowers, I’ll buy my own.”'  Having your husband wake up one day and say he didn’t want to be married to you anymore would do that. The Hero It’d been so long since he’d had even the most casual relationship. Really, it had been a long time since he’d had anything at all with a woman. There were a few editing errors. I am quoting from Amazon Kindle ' "Okay if you're sure" "I am.  When she was alone again" she asked her phone for the time...' So the "" are in the wrong place which isn't a huge error but does mean as a reader you double check what you've read. This happens a few times. No intimate scenes other than the Hero and heroine. Very small other woman drama, another woman flirts with him at his place of work but he isn't interested, she later implies they were going to go on a date in front of the heroine. Other man drama in form of ex husband who is not interested in getting back together but is mentioned from time to time. HEA. Breadcrumbs dropped for future books in series.

But now he is retired and home for Zach's wedding, and to regroup and get to know his family again. He has always felt like he was on the outside. He is the more quiet, loner type and the distance kept him even more isolated from them. He has seen a lot and been through some difficult things and has to work through it and figure out his future. He is helping his sister Hannah with building a cabin and accessories for her special needs camp and finding some fulfillment in the work. Ava Bennet is a hometown girl who now lives in New York City and works as an interpreter at the UN. She is beautiful, sweet, sassy, and blind since birth. But she is also adaptable, intelligent, and fiercely independent, and brave. She loves to try new things and challenge herself. And she is currently taking riding lessons at the camp. One look at a wedding got Luke's attention and her personality pulled him in. The more time they spend together, the more complicated it gets. They both have some personal issues that have put them on guard with relationships. Ava especially has some insecurities and fears about being rejected. And she thinks her life is more independent in the city, while Luke is starting to think that maybe staying home is the right place for him. Throw in some nosy families and a few dramatic events and it just gets more challenging. This is a sweet, passionate, and beautiful story about trust, acceptance, and unconditional love. I felt like the author did a wonderful job describing the challenges and adaptions for differently-abled people. Even though Ava did not have true sight, she could see to the heart and soul of Luke like no other. She was also determined not to be held back because of it. And although Luke was protective at times, he also understood Ava's need to be independent and not coddled. He was such an intense and swoony hero, and I loved them together. They never expected to find each other or get attached, but they could not stop it even when they tried. But are they brave enough to take a shot in the dark and see if they can find the light in the future together? I have missed being in this world. It brings back the Walker brothers and their spouses, and some of the McKinneys too so we get to see how everyone is doing. I am excited for Dallas' story next as he has been undercover and gone for a long time too. Follow Me: Blog: Reviews by Tammy & Kim (Rachel and Jay) | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | Instagram

As the book goes on you learn more and more. I found as the book goes on you learn a bit more about the family and all the hurt and blame that went on when they were kids. This poor family. I'm loving how they are coming together with each book. I love it when an author makes her characters real and believable. Ava is one of those characters. I know it might be weird for me to get so excited about a character who can't see but I have to admit I love when authors make their people real. Ava is one tough cookie. She is very independent and knows how to take care of herself. She's very likable. You want her as a friend. I will say that at times her mother made me cringe. But I understood what it's like to be a parent. Now if I had my way I would have kicked her ex's ass. He is just a prick. These two at times are silly in their thinking but I liked them together. They work. He's great with her and because he makes her feel safe she can be herself with him. Yes, they have issues that they need to work out but they do. It's a perfect romance story.

He feels a little adrift now though, not sure where he wants to settle permanently, nor what he wants to do with his life after service, but he knows he wants to make things better between him and his family. He keeps busy helping Hannah with construction on her camp, anything to be able to work hard enough to fill his time and catch what little sleep he can at night. They never expected to start something - she doesn’t intend to stay, and he isn’t interested in leaving again so soon. But the more time they spend together the more they see each other. I loved watching them form a bond. Ava is still hurt from her previous marriage and didn’t figure on finding anyone new - one broken heart was enough for her. Luke was still finding his footing in civilian life, feeling like he family didn’t quite get him. Though she didn’t have vision, she saw him more clearly than many had in his recent memory. This was a sweet, swoony story of forgiveness, new beginnings, and overcoming challenges. I loved how Ava found a place at Hannah’s and how her experiences helped Hannah to make her camp experience even better for the children she planned on serving. I loved watching Luke’s return to his family as he opened up for the first time since childhood. Returning to the world of the Walkers and the McKinney’s was a great journey. I love this extended family and seeing where the established couples (pretty much the rest of the siblings) are now was fun. It has been a while since the last book was released, but returning to the world was smooth and easy. I look forward to another installment with Dallas’s return from undercover work!

    Waiting On The Rain is perhaps the most poignant of this series by Claudia Connor. I read it in one sitting and I was completely taken with the love story that is Ava Bennet and Luke Walker. I had been curious about Luke for quite a while now, his absence felt strongly by his siblings as he was an Army Ranger for 20 years. His quiet, reflective nature was what I had expected but it was his subtle charm and his selfless actions that truly had me falling for him, even more than the previous Walker Waiting On The Rain is perhaps the most poignant of this series by Claudia Connor.

I had been curious about Luke for quite a while now, his absence felt strongly by his siblings as he was an Army Ranger for 20 years. His quiet, reflective nature was what I had expected but it was his subtle charm and his selfless actions that truly had me falling for him, even more than the previous Walker/McKinney heartthrobs I've met thus far. And trust me, that is really saying something! And then there is Ava. A woman who is independent, fearless and truly awe-inspiring. She doesn't allow her blindness to stop her, even making jokes that clearly throws some for a loop, most particularly Luke. But they have this easy chemistry between them right from the start and I was thrilled that they gave each other a real chance, doing their best to put aside their fears of intimacy as well as knowing that Ava wasn't supposed to be staying in town indefinitely. Connor takes her time in telling this beautiful tale with Ava and Luke somewhat surprised that although they've only known each other a short time, they simply get one another. Neither planned on anything heavy but to resist the other seemed futile, thank goodness, and it was truly lovely watching as they fall for each other and hard. Ava is one tough cookie and the Author clearly did her research wrt the daily life of a blind person, since nothing would literally and figuratively stand in her way, and I felt as if I have a newfound respect for those who cannot see the world around them. Luke gives her more than anyone else has, albeit he may stumble a bit in trying too hard to make Ava safe and comfortable. But that just endears him even more to both Ava and this reader and it was incredible to see him come out of his shell and embrace not only the love of this woman but that of his always supportive family. There are just enough cameos from beloved family members to make this book complete and I am beyond happy that mysterious brother Dallas will be getting his story told next. Claudia Connor has given us a heartfelt and moving story that is one of her best yet. I highly recommend Waiting On The Rain and give it a solid 5 stars all the way!

    4.5 Stars! We have been waiting for almost two years to get back with this family. Waiting on the Rain knocks it out of the park and is well worth the wait! Fans of the series will find it easy to jump back in and get caught up with everyone. New readers could read this as a stand alone but why not start at the beginning?? Luke has just left his military career and is a little bit lost. He is trying to fit into his family and into the town again. What he does not plan on or expect is the lovely 4.5 Stars!

Luke has just left his military career and is a little bit lost. He is trying to fit into his family and into the town again. What he does not plan on or expect is the lovely Ava. She nabs a corner of his heart like it has never been touched before and they just explode from there. Thank you to the author for giving us not only a broody struggling hero, but a heroine who is so independent and strong. And, let's layer in the fact that she is a woman who is blind. There are so many barriers they both have to get through before this relationship is going to even begin to work. The author takes us on a journey of discovery--for Luke who needs to learn how to fit in again and that his heart is capable of love. And for Ava, who needs to learn that she is worthy of love and can give her heart away to someone who will protect it. One brother still to go. The mysterious Dallas has finally come home. I can't wait see how his life has been and watch him try to blend back in with his siblings again. Great addition to the series! *Complimentary copy provided for an honest review.

    Waiting on the Rain by Ellen Anderson Luke and Ava's story So wonderful to get to visit with the Walker and McKinney families again.

    Wow, what an emotional journey the two main characters, Luke and Ava, take in this book to make it, together in the end. Ava is a successful, city woman and blind. She's also been recently burned by her ex. Luke is a retired army ranger who's having a hard time acclimating to civilian life. Together, they find something neither expected to. I truly love these two characters, they're perfect for each other. I love their relationship, and the sexual build up was emotional and steamy.

Having a blind wife was something he no longer was interested in and the marriage deteriorated, leaving Ava shaken and unsure. Needing a break, she returned home to help her father rehab after surgery. While home, her sister-in-law gifted her riding lessons at Hannah's (Luke's baby sister) farm. An enjoyable plot with low angst, plenty of love, and just enough Walker/McKinney interaction to keep fan readers happy but not so much that new readers are completely lost. Solid ending, though I wish there'd been a scene with Gary once more in the closing chapter. It would have been fun to see what he thought of the changes and progress made. ⭐ ⭐ ***** PreOrdered via Amazon and ARC received through Booksprout via Author/Publisher with the hope that I would voluntarily leave unbiased and unsolicited feedback.

    WAITING ON THE RAIN is the third instalment in Claudia Connor’s contemporary adult MCKINNEY / WALKER BROTHERS cross-over romance series. This is forty-two year old, former US Army Ranger Luke Walker, and thirty-one year old, interpreter Ava Bennet’s story line. WAITING ON THE RAIN can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines / series is revealed where necessary. Told from dual third person perspectives (Ava and Luke) WAITING ON THE R WAITING ON THE RAIN is the third instalment in Claudia Connor’s contemporary adult MCKINNEY / WALKER BROTHERS cross-over romance series. This is forty-two year old, former US Army Ranger Luke Walker, and thirty-one year old, interpreter Ava Bennet’s story line. WAITING ON THE RAIN can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines / series is revealed where necessary. Told from dual third person perspectives (Ava and Luke) WAITING ON THE RAIN follows the building relationship between forty-two year old, former US Army Ranger Luke Walker, and thirty-one year old, UN interpreter Ava Bennet. At his brother Zach’s wedding Luke Walker found himself drawn to a woman, a woman he believed had too much to drink but to Luke’s surprise, Ava Bennet was blind, not drunk, and was struggling to maneuver the minefield of bodies at the wedding reception. Unable to stop himself, recent US Army retiree Luke Walker asked Ava to dance, and found he was smitten. Working at his sister’s ranch aka the Freedom Farm, Luke would come face to face with the woman that was starring in his dreams but a woman whose past made her reluctant to fall in love. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Ava and Luke, and the potential fall-out as Ava’s time in her home town comes with an expiry date. Ava Bennet is hoping to spread her wings, working as an interpreter overseas but starting a relationship was never on the agenda, as she was only home during her father’s recovery. Meeting Luke Walker stirred something deep within our story line heroine, something she hadn’t felt for a very long time. Luke Walker wasn’t sure if he would survive having no set future after leaving the army. Helping his sister Hannah set up her Farm for people with disabilities gave our hero purpose but none more so than falling for a woman who struggled to let go of the past. The relationship between Ava and Luke is one of immediate attraction but Ava continues to battle memories of the past, a past that destroyed her faith love and happily ever after. An independent and strong-willed heroine, Ava refuses to believe she is incapable of anything, except maybe driving a car ! Luke, for all his posturing, wants what his brothers and sister have, and he is hoping to find his forever in a woman who is quick to run when things go sideways. The Sex scenes are intimate and passionate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. There is a large ensemble cast of colorful and energetic cast of secondary and supporting characters including most of the previous story line / series couples: Nick and Mia: Nora and Zach; Hannah and Stephen, as well as Ava’s brother Ryan and his wife Connie, their parents; Ava’s best friend Maddie, and her ex Blake . WAITING ON THE RAIN is a story of family, friendships, relationships and love. The premise is emotional and inviting; the characters are animated and dynamic; the romance is tender and seductive. www.thereadingcafe.com

    Representation: Blind Heroine Overall: 4.25-stars Overall, the romance between the Hero and Heroine was adorable. I loved how the Heroine set obvious boundaries with her family and friends – being blind doesn't mean she's incapable of taking care of herself. The only reason I didn't rate Waiting on the Rain 5-stars is because the Heroine *loves* her job as a United Nations interpreter and espouses throughout the novel how living in the city is much safer as a blind person, since the city has acces Representation: Blind Heroine Overall: 4.25-stars Overall, the romance between the Hero and Heroine was adorable. I loved how the Heroine set obvious boundaries with her family and friends – being blind doesn't mean she's incapable of taking care of herself. The only reason I didn't rate Waiting on the Rain 5-stars is because the Heroine *loves* her job as a United Nations interpreter and espouses throughout the novel how living in the city is much safer as a blind person, since the city has accessible public transportation, accessible pedestrian signals and everything she needs (grocery store, gym etc.) in a close distance. So, I was really frustrated that the Heroine, all of a sudden, seemed not to mind living in her small hometown. I get that when you meet the right person, priorities change. Still, considering how the Heroine's character was set up (pumped for a possible consulate job in Italy), it was unconvincing that she'd be content giving up her job. Another inconsistency was that most of the tension with her mother was that her mother believed the Heroine could only be successful in occupations where her blindness was a requirement (read: instructor at a camp for such students) ... and that leaving her home was too dangerous. The whole book, the Heroine, is going back and forth with her mom. Only for the Heroine to shrug off her mother's commentary as parental worry? There's parental consideration, and then there's undermining your child's confidence anytime they achieve something, let alone are a success by anyone's standards (working in the UN, for example). Therefore, the Heroine and her mom's resolution didn't seem truthful to the narrative the reader is *shown* throughout the book, and neither does the Heroine's willingness to give up her job. Safety Rating: Safe (view spoiler)[ • No cheating • Brief OW/OM drama – Heroine is reconciling her ex-husband ending their marriage because he got his sight back and she didn't (he didn't want to be with a blind person anymore). – An OW asks the Hero out, and the Heroine overhears. The Hero has no interest in the OW, but it makes them address their relationship's status. • Does have the Heroine pushing the Hero away • Does have a (brief) separation between the Hero and Heroine (hide spoiler)] Possible Triggers: (view spoiler)[ • Near-death experience • Heroine is assaulted by four men (shoved around and intimidated before the Hero steps in) • Hero is dealing with the trauma of 20+ years in the military • Hero's sister was abducted and missing as a child... she was found months later having been tortured by her abductor.

Luke and Ava took my breath away. A story with characters who had endured a lot but in a different way and their differences collided just beautifully. Luke is the second oldest of the family. After a career in the military, it was time to go back home, where all his anger he left behind was still there. Adjusting to civilian life was tough and his family almost saw him like a ticking bomb, because that man was so secretive and not letting people in. Being alone and trying to reconnect with his siblings was already enough. His routine and his isolation seemed to be a great balance for now. Until Ava Bennet. A woman who put so many things in perspective. Blind,brave, fierce and independent. Sometimes stubborn, protecting her heart but it took one person to make her feel that something more, this thrilling but also scary feeling. I adored how Luke was seeing past her disability, even if he was a little overprotective when it came to her, never seeing her less capable. She was truly inspiring. These two definitely had a smoking hot chemistry. Natural and undeniable. Two people who need to trust again and to give a chance at love. Of course their journey won’t be an easy one. The author managed to take the time to settle the pace, to develop their relationship so beautifully. Poignant and heartbreaking, bringing back all the pieces back together, the broken parts that only the other could see. This story brought so many feels and so many sensations, trying to make us feel how it was to be in Ava’s shoes to some extent. To explain how it’s like in her everyday life, but also how people could perceive her. The narrative was sincere, powerful, raw and emotional. A story that remains nuanced and subtle.

United Nations interpreter, Ava Lane is on extended leave from her job to provide care for her father. An invitation to a friend's wedding is an unexpected chance to spend some time away from her overprotective family and in doing so, meets the brother of the groom. This novel is full of surprises and a delight to read. It emphasises the importance of family and trust. It's a story of new beginnings. The emotions tug at the heartstrings as Luke and Ava's story unfolds. We learn about the struggles and challenges both the protagonists are dealing with. Then comes the satisfying and heartwarming romance. The author plays on the strengths of her characters… Ava, despite her disability, is a strong, independent woman who isn't afraid to fight for her right to live her life how she sees fit. Luke overcomes his stubbornness to find a new purpose in life. Both come to terms with the past to build a new normal in the future… filled with unconditional love… a force to be reckoned with. Overall an insightful and heartfelt novel. I've been a fan of Ms Connor's books since reading her debut novel and her latest; Waiting on the Rain is a fabulous addition to the McKinney/Walker Brothers series and can be enjoyed as standalone. ***arc generously received courtesy of the publisher***

Nothing feels comfortable to him until he meets Ava Bennett at his brother's wedding. There's plenty of spark between these two from the start, along with plenty of caution. She's headed back to NYC and he's staying at Hannah's indefinitely. I loved their hesitancy, but when they can't resist each other any longer, there goes those sparks again. Claudia Connor conveys Ava's life as a sightless person with sensitivity. It really made me think about how Ava experienced love in a world that she couldn't see. Her perspective was just so interesting to read, especially the parts regarding her past relationships. Luke has his own issues he's trying to work through and Ava makes that much easier, but her return to the city looms over them until a situation pushes Ava into a decision. Be prepared for some strong emotions toward the end of this! There's a terrifying action sequence that I absolutely loved and and ending that left me smiling. There's plenty of the Walker and McKinney clan especially Hannah and Stephen for fans of the series, but this also works as a standalone. Loved this one. An ARC was provided. This is my honest review.

Both of these characters have struggles that they are overcoming, Not the obvious physical limitations that Ava has but deeper wounds inflicted by life. It is through everyday encounters that Luke and Ava are drawn into a friendship but is being friends really enough for either of them? I liked how they took tentative steps in their relationship working on their personal issues at the same time. The individual struggles were not glossed over but were managed making the story very authentic. Also the name for this book raised questions in my mind when I first heard it. While reading the story I loved the significance of it when it was revealed. I highly recommend Waiting On The Rain which reads well as a stand-alone. However, like me you will fall in love with the Walkers and McKinneys wanting to read all of the back stories. Loved the conclusion, especially the phone call Luke received giving a hint of the last brother’s story to come. The publisher/author gave me a complimentary ARC of the book which I voluntarily chose to read and reviewed. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Luke has left the military and is back with his family after 20 years away and trying to find his place. He meets Ava at a wedding and although she is only in town to help her father recover from a recent surgery he cannot deny that he feels the most himself when he is with her. Ava is blind and has a full life in NYC where she works for the UN. Being back at home means spending time with her overly protective family. The last thing she needs is risking her heart on a former Army Ranger but spending time with him makes her feel more free than she has in a long time. This is a tender love story that shows both characters growing and healing as they fall in love. I always love spending time with Luke’s family and seeing them slowly piece back together as well. This is a great series. I would not start with this book because Luke’s story is so much more satisfying if you have read the books that came before. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A blind woman who as independent as she is, has lost her trust in love and men. When they meet at the wedding, the attraction is immediate but both have emotional baggage to overcome. Can Luke show Ava that he is the one for her? Can Ava trust that what Luke feels is love? Will they be able to overcome the obstacles to find their HEA? This story, at times heartbreaking and thought provoking, is also heartwarming. It’s a story about family, hope, opening one’s heart, trust, overcoming handicaps, and of course, love. Another winner in this series . I was entrusted a copy of this book by Booksprout . The opinions expressed are solely my own.
