the wait is over

From Buzzfeed to Babble to Scary Mommy and even network television—the most anticipated social media viral sensation is LIVE!

The story of romance writer Amy Daws’ relationship with a little tire shop in South Dakota is a refreshingly fun tale that ends in an auto shop romantic comedy that you have to read!

Daws' fans have loved watching this story trend, but more importantly, they are loving this 5-star read about a couple who meet outside of a tire shop...

  Its LIVE-flipped

When romance novelist, Kate Smith, finds her long lost writing mojo in the customer waiting area of a tire store, the complimentary coffee isn’t the only things that’s hot. But sexy mechanic, Miles Hudson, is just up for a friendly test-drive of her new book idea. At least, that was the agreement...

viral sensation
It all began when Daws went to Tires Tires Tires to get a new set of wheels on her car. She was suffering from writer’s block, but apparently the complimentary coffee and cookies cured her. So she decided to bring in cars of friends and family so she could keep writing in the magical waiting room. 

Her social media musings had her fans in stitches and it wasn't long before inspiration struck again. This time...Daws was to write a sexy romantic comedy about a romance novelist who sneaks into a tire shop and gets caught by a hot mechanic. You can imagine where the love story goes from here. 

Eventually, the little tire shop opened their arms to Daws, even putting her release date on their marquee sign outside. It wasn't long before Buzzfeed got wind of it. Then Scary Mommy. Then InspireMore and several other blogs with followers well into the millions. WGN News in Chicago, Fox 10 in Phoenix and Canada Public Radio are all talking about the adorable feel good story of how inspiration can strike in the strangest of places.

My Thoughts

Having read about Amy Daws' real life shenanigans at her local tyre store, I've been waiting to see how that experience translates into a book. Now having read Wait With Me, I think Daws did the right thing in setting up shop there because this book was a fun, sexy and swoon-worthy book.

Kate is a great heroine. She's made a few mistakes in her life but her head is screwed on straight...except when she takes unusual steps to overcome writer's block. She crosses paths with Miles, whose curiosity is aroused by this frequent visitor to his workplace. Miles makes a worthy hero. Over a year after coming out of a tumultuous relationship, he is looking only for casual hook ups. And as much as he enjoys helping Kate with her book "research", he can't help feeling more than casual. As these two spend more time together, the further they fall in love. Their adventures are lots of fun and their sexy times are of the scorching-the-sheets variety. .

And if a great romance isn't enough, Daws provides a few extra laughs as she pokes fun at authors and her author self... And I can't believe I fell for it but I did look up "emongry" on Urban Dictionary. It's not there but it should be.

If you need a light book to make you smile and lift your spirits, Wait With Me ticks all the boxes.

P.S. I hope this book eventually makes it onto audio. It would be a great book to listen to.
