Wait for Me by Elisabeth Naughton

Wait For Me
Book Description:
A woman without a past…

After a tragic accident left her with no memory, Kate Alexander struggled to fit in with a husband and world that didn’t feel right. She’s had no reason to question what friends and family have told her, not until her husband is suddenly killed and she finds a photo of a young girl in his office. A girl who can’t be anyone but a daughter Kate didn’t know she had.

A man desperate for a reason to live…

Ryan Harrison lost his wife in a plane crash five years ago. To cope with the pain of her loss, he dedicated himself to his job and to raising their daughter. Now a successful pharmaceutical executive, Ryan has everything a man could want—money, fame and power—but he’d give it all up in a heartbeat for just one more day with the woman he still loves.

Two lives about to converge.

As Kate begins to dig into a past she doesn’t remember, evidence leads her to San Francisco and puts her on the path toward Ryan, a man who sees in her the woman he loved and lost. Kate feels a draw to Ryan, one she can’t explain, but is that feeling enough to convince her this is where she’s supposed to be? As Ryan and Kate search for answers, they uncover lies long buried, a passion hotter than either expected and a danger that threatens…even now…when the second chance they’ve both been searching for is finally within reach.

Christina's BookReview
 “How can you think that? How can you believe God would let us go through this hell?” “Because you have to think of the alternative. If it hadn’t happened the way it did, you’d have been on that plane. You’d really be gone now. There’d be no second chances. There’d be no Reed.” 


Kate Alexander is still recovering from an accident that took away every memory she's ever had. When her husband suddenly dies Kate is surprise to find that she isn't as hurt as she should be.What little sadness she does have turns into disbelief when Kate discovers that her husband has been hiding something from her. When Kate journeys to get the answers she is looking for she isn't expecting what's waiting for her. 

Ryan Harrison has lived a "bachelor" life style ever since the day he lost the love of his life. Closing himself off from everyone but the one person he is living for, his daughter, Ryan isnt the same man he used to be. He is now a successful pharmaceutical executive but Ryan would trade it all in to have his wife back.

When Kate walks into Ryan's life he is shocked, happy, and angry. She is a spitting image of his wife and after a confrontation maybe she is his wife. But Kate isn't Irene...Not anymore.

As the two dig into Kate's past they will uncover secrets and lies that will unravel their lives.  


It's been a week since I've read this book. One whole week and I still can't get it out of my head. I'm going to try and give a review with as little spoilers as possible but it's hard. I'm too freaking excited about this book.

Kate's story is one that may seem improbable to you but as you read and find out how it all is connected you are in total shock. Kate is a herione that is strong. Although to many she might not seem that way she is. She doesn't let anyone bully her, she stands up for herself, she fights for those she loves. Most of all though Kate fights to remember her past, which was stolen from her. She makes the right decsion when it comes to getting to know the new people in her life. She is hestiant but opneed and that is strength in itself. She was one herione that I absolutely loved. 

I definitely enjoyed Ryan. He was very cold at the beginning with Kate but as things started to unravel we started to see a change in him. His love for his wife was heartwarming, so passionate and everlasting. The struggle he goes through in the book is one that is very realistic. Although there are many times where you see the new Ryan and you flinch with his harshness you also know that he is a man that is hurting. The one thing that he loved the most in the world was taken from him and when there's a possiblity it wasn't is enough of a struggle. But when that hope diminishes for him its painful.

And the passion in this story was so HOT! When Kate and Ryan are around each other there is a desire in them that sets the story on fire. As you read their moments together you are immersed  into those scenes so much so that if you are interrupted you will kill the person. LOL That's how hot and passionate their attraction for each other was. And when the volcano does erupt there is fire within the pages. Don't take my word for it. you have to read it. :-)

I have to mention the secondary characters because they played a great part in this story. I loved Mitch, Julia's uncle, and laughed and swooned at all his parts. He was a great friend to Ryan and a compassionate about Kate's situation. There is also Simone who is Kate's lawyer and is also the one that brings Kate face to face with Ryan. She also plays a great role in helping Kate uncover her past. Although Kate's and Ryan's story is the center of this book Mitch also has his own and it is so sweet. then there are also the children which make this book perfect. There aren't many stories I've read lately that include children so this made me like it more. 

I loved the passion in this book, the romance, the family moments and the characters. I did not want this story to end because it meant that I wouldn't get anymore from these wonderful characters. 

BUY this. READ it. LOVE it.

Happy Reading!
