Publisher's Summary

Sutton Spencer's ideas for her life were fairly simple: finish graduate school and fall in love. It would be a lot simpler if she could pinpoint exactly what she should do when she graduates in less than a year. Oh, and if she could figure out how to talk to a woman without feeling like a total mess, that would be great, too.

Charlotte Thompson is very much the opposite. She's always had clear steps outlining her path to success with no time or inclination for romance. Her burgeoning career in politics means everything to her, and she's not willing to compromise it for something as insignificant as love. Fleeting, casual, and discreet worked perfectly fine.

When they meet through a dating app, it's immediately clear that they aren't suited for anything more than friendship. Right?

Contains mature themes.

Just an absolutely delightful read.

I'm a rather slow reader and this has to be the largest book I listened to and the fastest I've ever finished any book!
What an absolutely beautiful book this was. It made me feel so many things. Wonderfully written, I can't recommend it enough. So glad I came across this one. I think it's my favourite book I've ever read so far.

Thank you audiobook gods

This book has had a special place in my heart since the first time I read it months ago. From the first read I fell in love with gorgeous, driven, trailblazing Charlotte, who swears she’s impervious to love; and sweet, adorably awkward Sutton, who knocks down all Charlotte’s walls just by existing in the world as a “beautiful, bright ray of redheaded sunshine,” as Regan calls her. I’ve probably read their story 3 or 4 times by now. It’s hot, sweet, poignant and at times surprisingly tear-jerking. All-around entertaining. So when I saw that an audio version had been released with LORI PRINCE, one of my all-time favorite narrators voicing it, I basically swooned with excitement! They could NOT have found a better narrator to bring out all the tones of this book, from the sexy to the playful to the emotional and inspiring. This was a joy to listen to. Thank you, audio gods, for pairing wonderful writers with wonderful narrators.

One little thing of note to my fellow Americans: politics and politicians feature largely in this story, and it’s a bit of unfortunate timing for this release considering the current dumpster fire of a political climate in our country right now. I am referring to the juxtaposition of the world Cass builds here to that of our distinctly charged reality. From the Obama erasure (in favor of Charlotte’s fictional grandmother, the “first [white] female president of the US”) to the Trump erasure (not nearly as bad a thing IMO, but still distractingly noticeable), to the fact that the biggest issue being faced in the “Those Who Wait” political/social landscape is the continued homophobia among politicians and their constituents (rather than things like BLM movements and - oh I don’t know - A PANDEMIC) this book feels like a very out-of-touch representation of the time and place it’s meant to portray in the US. It’s enough to pull you out of the story just a little at times, or at least that is true for me. So maybe just be aware of that (if you’re like me and potentially distracted by that kind of thing) and go with it. You will not regret it. :)

10/10 recommend! Lori Prince is a gift!

I loved the writing so much. and can we talk about how awesome Lori Prince is? amazing she was/ is. the sex scenes are so steamy and hot. I loved loved this book!

Friends to lovers?!

I was hesitant to listen because it was so long. But, I am so glad I made the purchase. This is by far my favorite book. Sutton is awkward and nervous, and Charlotte is confident. The perfect friends to lovers story line, that actually made me cry in parts. Please follow up on their story line.

Some of my favorites, love, politics and good friends..

I’ve actually read this book a few times now and the follow up book,I enjoyed Sutton and Charlotte love story. Lori Prince doing the audio is a perfect match. Honestly when I saw the length of the audio, I thought Forever and A Day was going to be included. Even though that’s not the case, just makes me look forward to another audio coming in the near future.

Could not love this book more!

This is my new favorite book! Finished then immediately started it again.
I love this author so much and since Lori Prince could read me the phone book and make me happy, I can't love it more.

Excellent

i loved this book, it was a little to long for my patience, but it was good, and I am glad Charlotte was not 100% successful, because we are bound to fail from time to time and it is human, connected to reality, and it allows the writer to create a sequel.

Couldn’t get enough!

Loved this book so much. I fell in love with Charlotte and Sutton and their story. I couldn’t get enough I had to listen to it again straight away and also bought a paperback copy of the book and the follow on Those Who Wait: Forever and a day.

My new favourite

Those Who Wait has just become my favourite wlw novel. It managed to break my heart but also managed to put it back together again! Haley Cass loves the characters in this novel and it does shine through in the writing. That, paired with Lori Prince's amazing narration, has made me fall in love with the characters too. I think I will be re-listening to this masterpiece in the future, for sure.

Beautiful

This story was so lovely and gave me all the feels. From anticipation of what's next with every critical moment, frustration at the very human awkwardness of talking about feelings and excitement at the possibilities for the 2 main characters relationship. Wonderfully read and beautifully written I am left curious about the fictional future of Sutton and Charlotte. Definitely recommended.

Great characters, endearing and heartwarming.

WOW! Get this immediately!

This is a beautifully written book and the characters will stay with you forever! I have fallen in love with Sutton and Charlotte and their story together. The characters are well rounded and you do get to know them on a personal level. The book will charm you, make you laugh and at some points makes you cry but overall you will feel happiness and belonging. Narration is amazing! I can't imagine someone else doing the book justice like Lori Prince has.
You can also read Forever and a Day : a Those Who Wait story that wraps everything up to a really nice and satisfying ending.

Just captivating

This is the first time I'm writing a review but this book is just too good not to review. I just love the characters and the connection that they both have and are drawn to each other. So much love, loyalty, attraction, teasing in this book. I cannot recommend it enough.

Lori Prince's narration is incredibly good for both characters.

Love love love ....

Mixed feelings...

Great story, however the performance was almost unbearable. Maybe its a cultural thing, but I felt that the tone used for the characters made them seem a lot different then the story is trying to convey and almost un likable I really struggled to stay for the entire story, but am glad I did however I do wish I had of just read the book.
