Synopsis: Naomi's life has been carefully planned from the day she was born. But Daddy's little princess has dreams of her own, and they don t include marrying the man he chose for her, or running the family business.
Everything seems to fall into place the moment she hears Jon's voice on the radio. Listening to him sing, and falling in love, are the same thing and it opens the door to a new life for her, far away from her father's scheming.
On the beaches of Los Angeles, Naomi finds a new life filled with love, music, and freedom.
A prequel to the Independent Publisher's Book Award winning series, The Stone Trilogy.
Naomi is a wealthy hotel heiress who should want for nothing, but the family business and fortune don't appeal to her. What she wants most is the freedom to choose her own path and see where it leads. But, used to succumbing to her fathers wishes, Naomi can only watch as her husband is selected, plans for a wedding are underway, and her destiny to take over the family business is set in motion. That is until she meets Jon Stone, a famous rock star from California. The two are completely smitten and Naomi finally sees an opportunity to be free. Will she find what she's been searching for?
Having read (and loved) the Stone Trilogy, I was anxious to get a little more detail on Naomi's upbringing. There were times in the other books that I wasn't fond of her very much but, after reading Waiting for a Song I was able to understand why she was often secretive and protective of her feelings. I kept pleading with her to stand up to her father and refuse to live her life on his terms. The moment she finally gains the courage to flee I was ecstatic. Like Naomi, I was fearful her father would track her down and drag her home, but my heart was overjoyed when Naomi was finally able to experience true love.
I enjoyed Waiting for a Song and learning more about the characters I became so connected to throughout the series. The story is full of detail and wonderfully written making it difficult to put down. I am looking forward to reading The Rosewood Guitar, Jon's Story next.
I highly recommend picking up a copy of Waiting for a Song.
