My name is Emma Sawyer.
I met Charlie and Wyatt on the same sultry, summer day. It was unexpected, leaving a feeling in the pit of my stomach like the time I drove too fast over Beckett Hill. The moment happened out of nowhere, all fast and quick and a little strange. Or maybe that was just Wyatt’s personality.
It was Charlie that brought us together. Little Charlie with those ridiculous ears. I found the dog, waiting in a pool of his own blood. Waiting for someone. Waiting for me.
Now Wyatt, he wasn’t waiting for anyone. At least that’s what he said, except I saw something different in the broken guy all alone out in the woods. I knew he needed me before he knew it himself.
Wyatt with his hidden dimples. Wyatt with his warnings to stay away. He was a hard lump of coal, ready to burn everything around him. The more he burned, the more it pulled me into the pain I saw etched on his troubled face.
I wanted to help Wyatt. I wanted to save him like he had saved all the Charlies in the world. He told me not to fall for him, but I did anyway. I fell hard and fast and deeply in love with Wyatt Caulfield.
But that was before I knew his secret.
Author Note: Waiting for Wyatt is the love story of Wyatt Caulfield and Emma Sawyer, which also features rescue animals. It’s a 112,000 word standalone, Contemporary Romance / New Adult Novel.

Go grab this book now to find out!!
I fell in love with S.D Hendrickson’s writing when I first read The Mason List so when I saw that she was releasing a new book I jumped at the chance to read it. This story had me on the edge of my seat at times, I was so engrossed with it that I literally could not put it down. I have to say S.D has a way with words that just seems to pull you in and not let go, her characters are written so well and they intertwine and dance together perfectly. Wyatt had a way of wiggling his way into my heart and Emma was truly amazing, never giving up on him and actually ends up fighting him for his heart. I can definitely say that S.D has become one of my drop everything to read Authors and I can’t wait to see what she comes out with next! I am giving this book 5 hearts and honestly if I could I would give it far more!!
