Peek Inside Worth The Wait

I’m all about pleasure...
A good pint of ale, heating up the sheets with a beautiful woman, and living by my own rules. The only thing I try to avoid? Commitment. And I've got a three-year success rate to prove it. So why am I suddenly knocked flat on my ass whenever Grace is around?

I’m all about pleasure...
A good pint of ale, heating up the sheets with a beautiful woman, and living by my own rules. The only thing I try to avoid? Commitment. And I've got a three-year success rate to prove it. 

So why am I suddenly knocked flat on my ass whenever Grace is around? The beautiful, funny, totally off-limits massage therapist may knead the knots out of my back, but she sure as hell makes other parts stiff. She’s on a mission to rid her life of toxins. No alcohol. No red meat. And, yeah, no man parts.

If I’m to have any chance of being the guy she breaks her man-cleanse with, I’m going to have to live the next three months by her no-kissing rules…which means getting all the mileage we can out of foreplay without actually touching…each other. No one ever said I wasn’t creative.

I’ll show her we’re worth the wait—and then I’ll show her just what it is she’s been waiting for.

When we are little, we learn to trust freely...after all, our family is there to look out for us, take care of us and we learn that all those grown-ups are there to guide us towards safe places...At least that is what hopefully happens. As we m

This was a sweet story about two people who were afraid to trust their hearts... again.

Jeremy was left heartbroken three years ago when his girlfriend turned down his proposal and left town. He's on a "no commitment" diet. Grace had her heart broken by a boyfriend who stole her money and has forced ...more

Slick's review:

I’m really sad to see the Kingston Ale House series come to a close as I’ve enjoyed this crazy, fun group of characters. Worth The Wait is a book the author didn’t have planned but the hero convinced her he needed a happily ever after and he got it, but it took time, patience, and qui ...more

Worth The Wait was not the first book I read by A.J. Pine, so I knew I would at least like her writing style. Question was as this is a book in the middle of the series – would I be able to follow the story not knowing what happened before.

The answer is yes – it is possible to read this book as a s ...more

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.

Holy Crap. I have enjoyed every book in this series, but this one is my absolute favorite. Jeremy is AMAZING and I love him. I even started using #Jeremyisbae to express how much I love him.

Jeremy meets Grace when he is ...more

AJ Pine’s Kingston Ale House series quickly became a favourite of mine. Starting with Brynn and Jamie’s story in The One That Got Away, then Holly and Will’s story in Six Month Rule, then Annie and Wes in Three Simple Words, and finally Gr ...more

Jeremy's story - YAY!!!! Bonus - it's fantastic! After having his heart handed to him three years ago Jeremy has been happy living his life free of commitments. A good pint of ale and a beautiful woman was all he needed. Meeting Grace, the beautiful massage therapist, was never part of his plan. Add ...more

Oh, you guys.

I cannot resist a delicious ginger. I cannot. It’s impossible. And if he also has a sense of humor, a sense of loyalty, and a great big…heart? I am powerless against his charms. And so, my friends, meet Jeremy Denning. He is all of those things, and so much more.

I truly was completely a ...more

If there's one thing I enjoy in books, it's to be surprised and enchanted by the characters and the storyline in such a way that you'll remember it for as long as possible. Worth The Wait was that kind of book and for that reason, A.J. Pine ...more

This is just what I needed after the last few weeks I've had.

Going in to this I knew I was intrigued by the blurb. Other than reading that I had no clue what I was in for.

It takes a lot in a story to keep me interested when there isn't a lot of the horizontal mambo going on. I love sex in a book, i ...more

Jeremy stays far away from any kind of commitment. He's three years out of graduate school and still happily working at his friends pub.

Grace is half way through a six month cleanse... of food, alcohol, and men.

When Grace is asked to document her cleanse for a local network, with a live kiss to bre ...more

By Jaime January 15, 2017

First and foremost, I adored Jeremy. He was witty, fun and easy-going, but serious when it really counted.
I loved Grace's conviction in her pursuit of finding something deeper with the right person and learning to trust herself to know who and when that would be. I appreciate that she wanted to see ...more

By Ayekah December 11, 2016

What a great story! This book had me captivated from page one. The books opens with a little flash of the end of the book, it sets the stage for what is to come.

You can read the blurb, so I'll skip right on into the story. Grace- working two jobs to dig herself out of a hole that her ex put her in, ...more

***4 ‘Commit to possibility’ Stars***

The whole ‘man cleanse’ idea peaked my interest and the fact that the guy was more than willing to go with it in order to get the girl and needed to see how it all played out and found Worth the Wait to be a sweet, enjoyable and realistic love story about two ...more

Oh, how I loved these two.

We have Jeremy and Grace in this one. We heard of Jeremy in previous books so I was excited to finally read what he was about.

Jeremy is more about living in the moment, and he’s been fine with that until Jamie offers him a good deal, something that would force Jeremy to set ...more

By Emily January 10, 2017

AJ Pine's Worth the Wait was definitely just that. Worth it! I've waited patiently for Jeremy, the loveable side character and brother to have his own story. What shy's him away from commitment, love, and finding that happily ever like the rest of this loveable group? What keeps him from moving on a ...more

Hold onto your heart with this story! Both Jeremy and Grace will steal it. Not once in this story was there a moment where I was frustrated with either character. I could understand Grace's decisions on her man cleanse and admired her determination. Jeremy was just as charming as he could be. He was ...more

This is my first read by this author. The book is part of a series but I had no issue reading it as a stand alone. I love the cute meet with Jeremy and Grace. She is a massage therapist and Jeremy is sure he will get a "happy ending" from her. She holds her own and doesn't give in. Jeremy has his wo ...more

Oh Boy It's Worth It!
Although this is the 4th book of the series, it's the 2nd book that I've read (so far), and although they have been the two newest I don't feel as though I'm lost. Each of these stories are standalone novels that one way or another are connected to the Kingston Ale House. This ...more

About the author

A.J. Pine

AJ Pine writes stories to break readers’ hearts, but don’t worry—she’ll mend them with a happily ever after. As an English teacher and a librarian, AJ has always surrounded herself with books. All her favorites have one big commonality–romance. Naturally, the books she writes have the same. When she’s not writing, she’s of course reading. Then there’s online shopping (everything from groceries to shoes). And a tiny bit of TV where she nourishes her undying love of vampires, superheroes, and a certain high-functioning sociopath detective. You’ll also find her hanging with her family in the Chicago ‘burbs.
