Release Blitz-Review & Giveaway: WAITING FOR WYATT by SD Hendrickson

Title: Waiting for Wyatt
Author: SD Hendrickson
Genre: Contemporary Romance/ New Adult
 Release Date: January 12, 2016


“The dogs that deserved a chance, the guy who needed a second, and the girl determined to save him.”

My name is Emma Sawyer.

I met Charlie and Wyatt on the same sultry, summer day. It was unexpected, leaving a feeling in the pit of my stomach like the time I drove too fast over Beckett Hill. The moment happened out of nowhere, all fast and quick and a little strange. Or maybe that was just Wyatt’s personality.

It was Charlie that brought us together. Little Charlie with those ridiculous ears. I found the dog, waiting in a pool of his own blood. Waiting for someone. Waiting for me.

Now Wyatt, he wasn’t waiting for anyone. At least that’s what he said, except I saw something different in the broken guy all alone out in the woods. I knew he needed me before he knew it himself.

Wyatt with his hidden dimples. Wyatt with his warnings to stay away. He was a hard lump of coal, ready to burn everything around him. The more he burned, the more it pulled me into the pain I saw etched on his troubled face.

I wanted to help Wyatt. I wanted to save him like he had saved all the Charlies in the world. He told me not to fall for him, but I did anyway. I fell hard and fast and deeply in love with Wyatt Caulfield.

But that was before I knew his secret.

Author Note: Waiting for Wyatt is the love story of Wyatt Caulfield and Emma Sawyer, which also features rescue animals. It’s a 112,000 word standalone, Contemporary Romance / New Adult Novel.

My Review

This book is one of those where after I read it, my only thought was "Wow!"  Wyatt is a very broken, tortured young man and I was drawn to him from the moment he was introduced in the story.  Even once I learned the secrets of his past, I couldn't help but feel for him and want to take care of him just like Emma.  He's shot to the top of my book boyfriends list, and I think it's going to be incredibly difficult for anyone to unseat him.

Emma is so sweet and caring, and everything about her comes across as genuine.  It's no wonder she is drawn to Wyatt, and the more I saw the two of them together, the more I wanted them to be with each other.

The two of them are backed up by some wonderful supporting characters.  Emma's twin sister, Blaire, is her exact opposite-suspicious and wary of people she doesn't know, with a personality that's a little rough around the edges (which was a little annoying to me), and Kurt was just downright creepy.  And the writing is excellent-it really drew me in to the story to the point that I lost track of time while I was reading.

The author also draws obvious parallels to the dogs at the rescue with Wyatt and Emma.  I not only cared about the human characters, but the canine ones as well.  Reading this story made me want to take every one of them home with me (oh yes, Wyatt too ;-) ).  The author did a great job showing the dogs' plight, adding a touching angle to the story even while she brings attention to a topic that can be upsetting.

Waiting for Wyatt is a wonderful, moving 5-star read, and is a top recommendation for me.  Be prepared to fall for Wyatt-it is completely unavoidable and you're going to love every moment of his story.  This book is recommended for those 18+, and is sure to become a favorite for anyone who reads it.
