When Nick Stevens walked into the office, Marcus Anderson realized that he’d found the man of his dreams…until he learns that Nick is already taken. Determined to make the best of an uncomfortable situation, Marcus tries to keep a polite distance, maintaining a strictly professional relationship with his co-worker as he struggles to keep his personal desires to himself. Until the night that he finds Nick alone in a bar, hurt, angry, and too drunk to stand on his own. In order to help him, Marcus must put his personal feelings aside so that he can be the friend that Nick needs. Not entirely sure that he can pull it off, he helps Nick get home, tucks him safely into his apartment, and watches over him through the night. Convinced that Nick will never see him as anything more than a co-worker, he resigns himself to his fate. That of being a man who is permanently relegated to the “friend zone.” Until Nick kisses him that is…


Review:  This is the first M/M book that I have read.  I wasn’t sure what to expect, but just like the other books in the Dare to Dream series I loved it!  In this book we are invited into the lives of Marcus who is the best friend of Kate and Claire and Nick who is the “new guy” at Claire’s agency.  For Marcus it was love at first sight but Nick already had a boyfriend and a live in one at that.

Worth Waiting For is told from the point of view of Marcus and Nick, and hearing the story from their points of view let you follow the story so well.  The author was very clear and detailed with the writing of Nick and Marcus’s story and that lets me feel like I can relate to the characters in the story on most levels.

The main characters in the book really go through a lot of growth in themselves and you can really tell that it was for the better.  With the help of their friends they make it through a lot of turbulent times but they find the light at the end of tunnel and work toward it.

When it was all said and done I loved this book just as much as the other two in the series, and because of that I give it a 5 Rose rating.

Favorite Quote:  “Well…uh…I read somewhere that they’re supposed to make you…you know…taste better.”
