Fake dating the cute owner of a bakery Dean is an investor in sounds kind of messy…but messy can be fun. 

Norah Donahue wants bakeries not babies, but her matchmaking mother won’t stop trying to play Cupid. 

Dean Moser is a cocky stock market savant whose friends are all settling down, leaving Boulder’s infamous ladies’ man all alone. 

When Norah needs a fake date for her parents’ anniversary party, her new silent investor is the perfect guy for the job. It seems like a foolproof plan… 

That is until Norah decides to break her biggest rule and lock lips with Dean in the middle of the party to spite her meddling mother. 

Turns out that Dean and Norah’s chemistry is sizzling hot, and mixing business with pleasure could turn out to be a recipe for disaster. 

Or maybe they can have their cake and eat it too.

Amy Daws certainly keeps the good stuff coming with TAKE A NUMBER, book four in the Wait With Me series.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dean and Norah’s story. Their story is romantic and sincere. There are plenty of laughs and some deliciously sexy scenes.

Dean and Norah both have their reasons for not wanting to get tied down to another person. They’re content with the status quo but Dean’s friends and Norah’s mother think otherwise. With events coming up that they are required to attend, both need to find partners quickly before the interfering …erm, well-meaning … people in their lives do it for them. And so begins a wonderful fake romance that is full of real attraction between Dean and Norah.

Dean and Norah make a wonderful couple. They are very different personalities, and when they clash, you never know if they will end up in a fight or out-and-out laughter or getting hot and heavy. They are a fun couple I was happy to spend time with.

In all fake romances, where real feelings develop, there comes that time when the characters need to speak up about what happens next. Daws approaches these moments with just the right amount of angst to pull your emotional heartstrings.

Characters from the other books in the series also make an appearance, as does Max, the man who brought Dean and Norah together in the business sense. I hope there are more books in this series and I hope it’s Max’s turn next.

TAKE A NUMBER is a wonderful romantic comedy that I highly recommend.
