Wait For It by Jenn McKinlay

A woman looking for a new lease on life moves to Arizona where she rents a guest house on a gorgeous property with a mysterious owner—a man who teaches her about resilience, courage, and ultimately true love, in this funny, bighearted novel about hope and healing from New York Times bestselling author Jenn McKinlay.

Stuck in a dreary Boston winter, Annabelle Martin would like nothing more than to run away from her current life. She's not even thirty years old, twice-divorced, and has just dodged a marriage proposal… from her ex-husband. When she’s offered her dream job as creative director at a cutting-edge graphic design studio in Phoenix, she jumps at the opportunity to start over.
When she arrives in the Valley of the Sun, Annabelle is instantly intrigued by her anonymous landlord. Based on the cranky, handwritten notes Nick Daire leaves her, she assumes he is an old, rich curmudgeon. Annabelle is shocked when she finally meets Nick and discovers that he’s her age and uses a wheelchair. Nick suffered from a stroke a year ago, and while there's no physical reason for him not to recover, he is struggling to overcome the paralyzing fear that has kept him a prisoner in his own home.
Despite her promise to herself not to get involved, Annabelle finds herself irresistibly drawn to Nick. And soon she wonders if she and Nick might help each other find the courage to embrace life, happiness, and true love.

4.5 Stars

What a fun and cute read! This is the first book I read from this author and now I'm a fan. Wait For It is the perfect weekend romcom book that will have you laughing at Annabelle Martin and all her antics! Annabelle is a great character - she's quirky and spontaneous, but she has such a good heart. She leaves behind the east coast to take on a new job in Phoenix to work with her best friend. 

Annabelle ends up renting a guest house from a mysterious and cranky landlord. This cranky landlord is Nick Daire. Nick is going through a lot of health issues and it's caused him to be recluse in his own home. He's angry and pushing everyone away. And even though his new tenant pushes his buttons on all his rental rules, Nick can't stop entertaining the idea of Lexi. And she maybe the perfect match to help Nick overcome his issues!

What I also love about this books are the side characters, from Jackson and Lexi and even "Sir!" Another great weekend read for any rom com fans!
