    A new author for me and I liked this a lot.

    Worth Waiting For is the first book I've read by Wendy Qualls where she didn't have a co-author. I liked this story very much. Worth Waiting For is a story about one man who is so deep in the closet it's almost unimaginable to me in this day and age, and him reconnecting, after many years, with the first man he was intimate with. Paul Dunham is close to obtaining tenure at the conservative college he attended and now teaches at. He's never lived his life openly as a gay man because it would mean the loss of his job. He really doesn't know anything else and isn't willing to give his job up to live a life he was taught was wrong. Brandon Mercer is out and proud. He knew Paul when they were freshmen at the school where Paul now teaches. He'll be in town for a while and is open to having a fling with Paul. Paul has thought about Brandon many times over the years and always wondered why he disappeared after freshman year. He somewhat reluctantly agrees to see Brandon as long as they are careful. This story has a little bit of everything in it. There's a mystery – Brandon's company was hired to investigate irregularities in the school's computer files. There's a love story in the relationship that develops between Brandon and Paul. And there's suspense – who has been spying on Paul and took intimate pictures of him and Brandon when they were in Paul's home? There's also Paul's family story and his reluctance to come out to them. Worth Waiting For brought me to tears in places. While I wanted to shake Paul at times my heart also hurt for him. It's impossible for me, a straight woman, to understand how he can feel that giving up love for a job is worth it. And I just cringed when Brandon finally couldn't take it any longer and verbally lashed out at Paul. This book kept me engaged right from the beginning and I loved the epilogue that gives us a glimpse into Paul and Brandon's life together two years in the future. I will definitely be reading more from Wendy Qualls. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***
