Outwait by Lisa SuzanneGenre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: June 1, 2017
I really enjoyed Outwait. It was my first book by Lisa Suzanne. I loved the slow-burn feel of the start of this story. Carson is a playboy. He is on the outside a self-assured, successful businessman, but underneath unhappy with his job, but doing everything to keep his family happy and avoid confrontation.
“I’m trying so hard to do the right thing by you. I need to kiss you. I need to feel you.” His eyes darken. “I need to fuck you like I need air to breathe, but I won’t touch you until I know you’re only mine.”
Sylvie is learning that her strong father is battling illness while trying to run his company. She attempts to stop Carson King’s company from taking over her family’s business.
“He’s tearing apart my family business without a damn care in the world. He’ll move on to the next company after he hurricanes his way through mine. He’ll leave destruction in his wake, and he’ll just keep padding his bank account with more money while putting people I love and care about out of their jobs.”
As someone who watched the effects of Parkinson’s cause her own dad’s body to fail him, this part of the story really tore at my heart!
“How am I supposed to watch my dad—my hero—as his body starts to fail him?” She’s whispering the words, and I know she’s speaking her biggest fears aloud for the first time.”
Carson and Sylvie’s journey was definitely not a smooth one and their choices were never easy. I loved the story and was so glad that Carson decided to outwait any obstacles that were put in their way.
“People come and go from our lives all the time. Why is it that some make a bigger impact than others?”
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?
