From the outside, Carson King looks like he has it all. He’s next in line to be CEO of King Communications, he’s hot and single, and he’s at the center of the New York social scene. He has a different woman on his arm every night, and he wouldn’t change a single thing about his life…until Sylvie Baker storms into his boardroom.
Sylvie Baker actually does have it all. She balances a successful career with the perfect boyfriend—a man she plans to marry someday. She wouldn’t change a single thing about her life…until Carson King challenges everything with one simple confession.
Sylvie is intent on fighting her feelings. Carson’s convinced it’s just a waiting game.
But how long is he willing to wait for her?
4 Star Review by Ashley
Confession time: I haven't read a Lisa Suzanne title in well over a year (not even the other standalone novels that tie all the characters here together). But this cover and then the blurb totally piqued my interest. Outwait, despite the title, goes for it right out of the gate! I liked that it was kinda crude but not too crude to make me cringe.
It was Carson, a wealthy and good looking guy being a guy. And Sylvie trying to hold onto some semblance of normal when everything around her was changing. There was no denying the attraction between the two. While Carson saw it as a challenge, Sylvie saw it as a disaster waiting to happen- plus she has a boyfriend. I have to say that I liked Carson's relentless pursuit of what he wanted. And how he really opened himself up to Sylvie. He showed her a side of himself that very few (his family) ever got see.
There was more than one obstacle standing in the way of their happiness. Family. Work. Distance. Pressure. Obligation. I really liked how Carson followed in his King family tradition of when you know, you know. And he went all out to get what he really wanted and that was Sylvie. All that being said, I found the connection to be a bit lacking. However, Outwait was still quite enjoyable- funny, sexy and quirky with a cast of characters that brought home the true meaning of family.
