Waiting on…Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway

I currently have this book sitting in my TBR pile and it keeps calling my name. First of all, would you look at that cover? It’s gorgeous! The colors, the typeface, the fingerprint heart…I can’t get enough! It’s kind of far down in the pile, but every time I go to grab a new book it’s like…

“Hey girl, why don’t you pick me this time!”


I have so many more books to read before this one, but something tells me I’m going to cave soon and throw my reading list aside so I can read it. The description totally captivates me and I’m intrigued by the boy meets girl, girl loses boy, boy comes back years later and what happens next story line.

This book just GETS me!

Emmy’s best friend, Oliver, reappears after being kidnapped by his father ten years ago. Emmy hopes to pick up their relationship right where it left off. Are they destined to be together? Or has fate irreparably driven them apart?

Emmy just wants to be in charge of her own life.

She wants to stay out late, surf her favorite beach—go anywhere without her parents’ relentless worrying. But Emmy’s parents can’t seem to let her grow up—not since the day Oliver disappeared.

Oliver needs a moment to figure out his heart.

He’d thought, all these years, that his dad was the good guy. He never knew that it was his father who kidnapped him and kept him on the run. Discovering it, and finding himself returned to his old hometown, all at once, has his heart racing and his thoughts swirling.

Emmy and Oliver were going to be best friends forever, or maybe even more, before their futures were ripped apart. In Emmy’s soul, despite the space and time between them, their connection has never been severed. But is their story still written in the stars? Or are their hearts like the pieces of two different puzzles—impossible to fit together?

Readers who love Sarah Dessen will tear through these pages with hearts in throats as Emmy and Oliver struggle to face the messy, confusing consequences of Oliver’s father’s crime. Full of romance, coming-of-age emotion, and heartache, these two equally compelling characters create an unforgettable story.

  1. I don’t read a lot of contemporary books, but this one sounds like a really cute read! I think I’m going to make a list of contemporary books that I should read over the summer!

    I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it 😀

  2. Ha. I thought I knew what this book was about but I totally didn’t. Now I might actually read it. I kept conflating it with Althea & Oliver (a book that does not sound like it’s my bag) in my head!
