Review From User :
Loved this book! (view spoiler)[ it's about time I get to read a book where the heroine doesn't remain celibate while waiting around for the hero. Why female authors find the need to write heroines who stay celibate while the hero sleeps around is beyond me but I'm so glad that isn't the path this author took. Maritza does sleep with someone else when Isaiah somewhat jokingly tells her she probably needs to get laid. I loved that he was the one that was celibate and was jealous knowing she was with someone else. She was a single woman and was free to do as she wanted and I loved that she moved on. (hide spoiler)] I hated Isaiah at first, he was cold and a jerk to her and I didn't feel any chemistry between him and Maritza but I'm glad I stuck with it because the more I got to know his character, the more his actions made sense. Epilogue was sweet and the perfect ending to this story.
Eight months ago, you were just a soldier about to be deployed and I was just a waitress, sneaking you a free pancake and hoping you wouldn’t notice that my gaze was lingering a little too long.
But you did notice.
We spent one life-changing week together before you left, and we said goodbye on day eight, exchanging addresses at the last minute.
I saved every letter you wrote me, your words quickly becoming my religion.
But you went radio silent on me months ago, and then you had the audacity to walk into my diner yesterday and act like you’d never seen me in your life.
To think … I almost loved you and your beautifully complicated soul.
Whatever your reason is – I hope it’s a good one.
Maritza the Waitress
PS – I hate you, and this time … I mean it.
