Dear Taron,

I should have told you this a long time ago....

Dear Taron,

Is there a time limit on forgiveness?

If there is, I haven’t reached it....

Dear Taron,

I still love you....

A letter never sent.

Heck, I never even finished it....

Taron Rhodes was my brother’s best friend.

He was sexy as sin.

But he was more than that....

He was ponytail-pulling, ice-down-your-shirt teasing, throw-you-in-the-lake screaming.... 

Strong, tanned arms and blue-green eyes over a heart-stopping, naughty grin....

Did I mention his tight end? 

I gave him my first real kiss, my heart, my everything.

I said I’d wait for him....

I’m still waiting, because Taron Rhodes is still the man of my dreams,

And I have a secret that has his blue-green eyes. 

Noel LaGrange stole my heart when she was only 18 - pushing me off a flatbed and calling me a city slicker. 

Her brother Sawyer would kick my ass if he knew how many times we made out that summer, how close we got. 

Everything changed when Sawyer and I joined the military. 

We were honorably discharged, but I didn’t go to her.

Instead, I went back to the city...where no amount of money, no amount of pills can heal this wound. 

Only her whiskey eyes and dark hair, her slim arms and her sweet scent, give me hope. 

I broke her heart just as surely as I broke mine, but I’m going back to make it right.

If she’s still waiting....

(Wait for Me is a stand-alone second-chance military romance with a guaranteed HEA. No cheating. No cliff-hangers.)

OMG! This book brought back memories

As I was listening to this book, I couldn’t believe how much reflection and memories it brought back of my life. My former husband was in the military, we were married at 19, and although our marriage didn’t end happily ever after, It really resembled my life with my ex. Painful memories were brought back, BUT.... so were all the GREAT memories we had created as well. Those are the memories I will take with me to my grave. Loved this book, loved the happily ever after. Both Patrick Zeller and Emma Wilder really brought the characters of Tarron and Noel to life for me. It’s always funny when they try to create character’s of the opposite sex. Loved this story!

Charming, sincere, beautiful!!!

Audiobook: Narrators - Emma Wilder and Patrick Zeller

I LOVED this narration! Both of these performers did an exceptional job of bringing these characters to life. With plenty of heart conveyed in every word, and spot on accents, I couldn’t help but fall in love with Taron and Noel.


Oh my gosh! This is one of the most charming, sincere, sometimes painful, second chance stories I’ve ever read!


’I didn’t know which way love would take me, quietly or with the roar of a freight train. I should’ve known. I should’ve realized the moment I saw him.’


I absolutely adored Noel! She was smart and witty and extremely loyal to her family as well as Taron...once he won her heart. Determined to make her dreams come true, as well as proving herself to her brother, she worked hard to turn those hopes into reality. While she was dedicated to her chosen occupation, she remained soft, sweet, caring.


Taron never expected to find the woman for him while helping his friend out in his peach orchard. But when Noel falls into his arms, he knows immediately that is exactly where she belongs. However, he doesn’t run roughshod over her to get what he wants. His slow, easy wooing of her was perfectly romantic in every way.


I loved Taron even when life threw him down a hole that he couldn’t get out of, a hole he chose to hide in.


’Heaven is finding the thing you can’t live without and being able to hold it. Hell is knowing you’ll have to let it go.’


But I fell completely into adoration with him when he not only emerges from that place, but sets out to win his girl back, and then finds himself dancing with Angelina Ballerina. I’m sure my ovaries dried up years ago but Taron and Dove together were enough to bring them roaring back to life. TMI? Sorry, but nothing is more swoon worthy than a big brawny man with a tiny delicate little girl who calls him “Daddy”.



While this couple do have years of separation between them, and there is definitely moments of angst, it doesn’t consume the whole story. This is quite simply a beautiful story of first love and second chances.


’I’ve learned that love is a tornado, destructive and fierce and powerful. It’s also a butterfly, soft, gentle, beautiful. But to get to the butterfly, you must go through the tornado.’

Sweet story..

I liked this book. It didn't include a lot of sex, drama or angst but it was well written and a really sweet story that held my interest. I will definitely look for more books by Tia Louise. I thought the narration was superb which always adds to the enjoyment of the book. Emma Wilder is quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators and although I haven't heard much narration by Patrick Zeller, I thought he was PERFECT for Taron.

Beautiful Story!

I love when a story keeps me invested in the characters. This was a beautiful story from start to finish. Sometimes when your reading/listen to a story part drag or goes to long. The years this story covers are is seamless. The flow is great.
The narrators was good, I already knew I’d enjoy Emma Wilder and she did not disappoint. Patrick Zeller was knew to me. He has a nice deep raspy voice. I maybe wouldn’t seek him out for narration but I wouldn’t say no to listening to him like some male narrators.
Overall excellent story & worth the credit.

Love is like a butterfly.

Such a beautiful story. A wounded soldier fighting old demons from when he was deployed in the Marines. This story will blow readers away, there are so many beautiful and painful moments they will make readers think about what is important in life. Wait For Me is a beautiful love story with a brave, sweet, sexy hero named Taron that carries old wounds while serving his country. The heroine Noelle, is sweet, beautiful, independent and hard working. There some heartaches, painful memories, mistakes and forgiveness to be with the one we love. I absolutely love Wait For Me.

Great book and narration

Loved the love story of Noel and Taron. Love both narrators they were good at bring the story alive. I don’t know how Emma Wilder does her voice to make it sound like the male character but she did great! ❤️❤️

A beautiful love story, wonderfully narrated!

I'm a fan of Tia Louise's books, and I won the audiobook for this one and was so excited to dive in! Young love, brother's best friend, military romance - count me in! I love a story of first loves and absolutely adored Taron and Noel. Theirs was an epic love story, but Taron goes off to war and comes back a changed man. There were hints coming through the story that made me think this was going to be predictable and lose my interest but I was SO wrong. I was captivated and invested in these characters and felt their pain, their passion, their heartbreak... Tia Louise gives us an emotional, heart-wrenching, and beautiful story of young love, heartbreak, forgiveness and true love. Her words are so beautiful and really make you feel all the range of emotions. I adored all the characters in this story and loved the tight-knit family of Noel and her brothers. I want to see Sawyer (Noel's big brother) get a HEA!!

This book was narrated beautifully by Patrick Zeller and Emma Wilder on Audible!

4.5 stars for Wait for Me!

Heavenly Peaches...

I absolutely loved everything about this story. All of the characters were amazing and I am hoping Sawyer and Leon have stories of their own. So much love in this family despite the tragedy they have endured. Narrators really brought this story to life. Well done!

A Second Chance for Love = A Wonderful Love Story

I really enjoyed Patrick and Emma’s performances for Taron and Noel. They helped turned this sweet love story into something beautiful. This is the second time I’ve listened to an audiobook with these two as narrators and I am still very impressed with their work.

We first hear of Taron and Noel in the book, “Here with Me”, Sawyer and Mindy’s story. It almost seems that this book should have been written first because it takes place before Sawyer and Mindy start a relationship. This also gives a little bit more of a background on why Sawyer suffered PTSD and had to get help for it.

We learn how Sawyer and Taron become friends and how they join the Marines together with two other close buddies. Sawyer invites Taron to help him during the peach harvest before they are deployed to Mexico. This is where he meets Noel. The way they meet is very cute, and they develop a friendship and a romance during the short time he is there. When he leaves she makes a promise to wait for him and he does the same for her. This wouldn’t be a second chance story if something didn’t happen to prevent him of returning to her. It’s tragic and heartbreaking because you feel for them. This also shows you that the men and women who fight for our country suffer tragic circumstances sometimes. They should be our heroes.

I won’t say much more about this book because I don’t want to give anything away, but I do recommend you reading this. It’s very enjoyable, heartfelt, and realistic. It’ll make you want to be living in a small town. I’m really starting to love this author.

I hope Leon will get a story soon.

BEAUTIFUL & HEART BREAKING HEA 💞💔💕

I recieved this book in ebook for Free to Give My True & Honest Review & brought the audio when I kept crying & having to keep losing my actual place & my wiping got even more so when I went on the audio. Patrick & Emma narrated beautifully with such emotion.
This is such a strong beautiful love story where we have 3 best friends from Nashville, Taron,V Patton & Marley, where they enlist into the Marines & they meet Sawyer whose a Peach Orcharder & when Sawyer decides to go home before their departure for their ensignment & that's where Taron meets Noel & in the short harvesting weeks they get real close & fall in love.
But things change drastically when just before R & R where they'd see each other again, has to be cancelled.
But when they do end up getting home it's only Sawyer going back to the Orchard whilst the others go back to Nashville & it's when Noel goes there to confront Taron to find out why???
Come in find out what & why things go wrong & why I cried so much & if the tears change to smiles....

Taron and Noel!

Taron is about to be deployed by the Marines but before he leaves he agrees to help his best friend Sawyer with their harvest. While there he meets Sawyer’s sister Noel and it was a case of love at first sight.

From the first moment that Noel saw Taron she knew that he was her destiny. They spent every spare minute together before he had to leave and were planning their future for when he returned but fate had other plans.

When Taron is discharged he believes that the sweet angel he loved deserves so much better than the man he has become so instead he kept his distance and broke both their hearts. When fate brings them together once again Noel has a surprise of her own and they must decide if the pain of finding their way back to each other is worth the reward.

This is an emotional story of overcoming the hand that life deals you and realizing that you are so much stronger when you are able to lean on the ones you love. The narration of this story pulled you in and had you invested in the characters and their happy ever after.
