Waiting on You by Kristan Higgins

I've been looking forward to this book for awhile. Colleen O'Rourke, local bartender (bar owner, really), has been a B character in other Blue Heron books but she has seemed like a confident woman who is comfortable in her own skin. Even better, it's hinted that she has had "relationships" with many of the men that come into the bar (though Higgins does have to mention that her reputation is hugely inflated. Why can't we just have a confident woman who actually deserves her reputation?) but her friends don't think less of her for it and she doesn't think less of herself.
For four years, she dated Lucas Campbell while they were in high school and even while starting college. Then
she found out that he knew her father was cheating and didn't tell her. Also, he had issues saying "I love you" and just sharing emotions in general
her world fell apart and so did their relationship. While she hasn't lost faith in love, she's lost the idea of it for herself.
This book was three stars for me until the ending. I didn't love
that Joe was such a douche about Colleen sleeping with his cousin but you do have to factor in that his world had just shifted with the loss of his uncle
but the fact that he sort of figured it out on his own was a nice touch and, oh, the feels.
This book comes out on March 25, 2014 and is most definitely a book worth reading.
