Jeopardizing her relationship with her true love, a young actress is duped into a marriage to boost her boyfriend's career in the stunning romance novel, Worth Waiting For by D.M. Needom. A one-hit movie star sensation, Jennifer starred in a series that was canceled after two seasons. Because of her inadequate agent, Jennifer hasn't picked up another show and is struggling to make ends meet. When her mother is once again arrested for a DUI, Jennifer doesn't have the money nor the inclination to bail her out. The situation is taken out of her hands when her brother's boss, Mason, a famous and influential actor, steps in and insists on helping. Coerced by her mother and brother to accept Mason's aid, Jennifer accepts his timely assistance only to discover she is trapped in an appalling situation with heartrending consequences. Deeply in love with her boyfriend, Wes, Jennifer is conflicted when Mason threatens Wes's singing career. Mason's ultimatum is, marry me, or I will destroy not only you but also Wes, and neither of you will work in this town again. Should Jennifer risk ruining Wes's profession and marry for love? Or protect their careers and lose her soul mate?
Brimming with intrigue and suspense, Worth Waiting For by D.M. Needom is a breathtaking romantic novel. It is an enthralling story with engaging characters and an intense plot. The antagonist's charismatic and devious personality captured my interest from the start, and I had to find out if Jennifer could escape his influences without someone losing their life. Realistically portrayed, Mason's personality traits had a sociopathic quality that was alarming and disturbing, keeping the apprehension alive. Unexpected twists augment the intensity of the plot, adding to and increasing the suspense within the storyline. Coming to a startling and dramatic conclusion, it is a sensational novel that will delight romance enthusiasts who love a lot of drama and suspense. However, because the intimate scenes are graphic, the book is more suitable for a mature reader.
