Five years ago, Jenna Moore left without a word, not even to her two best friends Nick Peterson and Tyler Warner. On her eighteenth birthday, she had planned to give up her virginity to them, until she found them with another woman. This discovery was so devastating that she left town that night. Now that she's come home for her father's funeral, they want answers.

Nick and Tyler finally have back the only woman they have ever loved. Now that Jenna has returned, they intend on letting her know how much they still love and want her. But will they still want Jenna after she tells them the secret she's been keeping from them all these years? Or will Jenna run away from the only men she's ever loved?

Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among the men.

There are times when you desperately want to like a book. You keep reading hoping that your opinion will change, but you end up being let down. This is what happened for me with SOMETHING WORTH WAITING FOR. While I thought that the author had a great concept of a story, I found it too lacking to really get into it.

Jenna, Tyler and Nick were inseparable in high school. Things were great until the night of Jenna's eighteenth birthday. Her plan was to give her virginity to her two best friends whom she loved, but instead she found them with another woman. She left and has been gone for the last five years.

With the death of Jenna's father, she's back in her hometown, and faced with the two men she's always loved. Nick and Tyler are glad to have Jenna back and now they are going to do everything they can to keep her with them forever.

I thought the story was very sweet. Reuniting old love is a favorite trope of mine. I thought that what happened with Jenna was something I could identify with. How horrifying would it be if the love of your life was with someone else on the night you decided to give yourself to him or her?

Tyler and Nick seemed like perfect to me, and Jenna, although she made me want to shake her sometimes with her stubbornness, was a great match for them.

However, the fact that the dialogue was stilted and the writing choppy really took away from the story and made it hard for me to get into it. I wanted to like this much more than I did, but I just couldn't. There is something in great writing that sucks you in, and makes you want to stay between the pages of a story, but this one just didn't have that.

Unfortunately, SOMETHING WORTH WAITING FOR was a miss for me. The description of the book truly piqued my interest, but the writing just couldn't back it up.
