Summary

“Heat cannot be separated from fire, nor beauty from the Eternal.” (Dante Alighieri)

Of all the Sins, Sloth is the most deceptive. A baby face and a disarming smile hide the dangerous pleasures lurking beneath.

Jet Denton has always been the sort of person who knows what life will offer.

Unfairness.

Inequality.

Abandonment.

Blinded as a teen, Jet quickly accepted that life was what you make of it, and that’s how he handles all his clients: delicate care at arm’s length, with a power he relinquishes to no one. 

And then he meets Taylor. 

There shouldn’t be anything special or appealing about the nervous photographer, but Jet can’t seem to stay away. Taylor is everything he’s ever wanted, and it’s in those still, quiet moments Jet realizes that for this man, he may just be willing to wait forever. 

Waiting on Forever is the second book of the Carnal Tower series. It features a man of utter indulgence who brings his clients to their knees, a photographer who is just about done with every screaming child that ever crossed his path, a cat named Thursday, comfort snacks, and the steamiest happily ever after.

Engaging, sweet, and wholly satisfying

I knew I loved Jet and Taylor before they met each other, and their impromptu superhero photoshoot with Cody showed me how kind-hearted they truly were. I could tell that Taylor and Jet would be an excellent match from the start, but these two fought their attraction with insecurities about not being worthy of each other for a long time. I was furious when I learned how badly Taylor's ex had damaged his self esteem, but the more time he spent with Jet, the more I saw him regaining trust in relationships and forever love. Jet's hesitation was understandable, given the nature of his job, but I wish he'd opened up to Taylor sooner and given him a chance to love every aspect of his personality.

This story leaned much further into hurt/comfort than the last, and I personally loved getting to see the quieter, low-key dates Jet and Taylor went on. Even as they struggled to define their relationship, I could sense how deep their feelings had grown, and it made every interaction they had feel special. The main thing I felt was missing from this story was the presence of Sloth. I understand why E.M. Lindsey chose not to focus heavily on Sloth's sessions with other clients, but, similar to Taylor, it left me feeling like I'd only gotten to know part of what made Jet who he was. In a story where I learned so much about Taylor and what made him tick, I wanted to have that same closeness to Jet. I was really worried that this entire book would pass without Taylor getting that last bit of clarity regarding Sloth, but I should have been more patient because wow was their eventual session worth the wait.

As much as I adored Jet and Taylor's romance, I couldn't review this story without mentioning Maya, Thursday, and the rest of the Sins. Their presence added a lightheartedness to the overall storyline, and I had so much fun watching them interact with Jet and Taylor. Maya in particular was an outstanding friend to both Taylor and Jet, and without her last push I don't know if they would have ever gotten together.

**I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this book. This review expresses my honest thoughts and opinions.

Magic

Story: E.M. Lindsey is amazingly talented at creating magical stories. To say I was riveted is a very mild descriptor of how this story got it’s hooks in me and wouldn’t let go. Amazing characters and an emotional journey of the best kind!
Narration: Michael Dean’s performance was spot on! The story was easy to follow and the narration enhanced it without overpowering the words. Just right!

Such a unique and wonderful book!

I love EM Lindsey’s writing - so much heat with complex, deep characters. Michael Dean delivers another fantastic performance- I could see the Tower, the naughty kids in Taylor’s store and more in my mind. Jet fits Taylor perfectly and I am thrilled I found this book!

Oh the carnality

The sex and story are pretty good in this series but I have found the endings rushed after the "sin" has sex with his partner in books 1 & 2.

A wonderful experience

I re-read this one as an audiobook because I enjoyed the book so much the first time I read it. This audiobook was just so fun and absolutely lovely to read. This audiobook was just such a wonderful time and I enjoyed it very much.

I enjoyed this one way more than I thought I would. Which is a testament to how much I enjoyed this book because this book is about a plot point that isn’t always my favourite in books and somehow this book made me love it. I just adored so much of this book and I had such a good time reading it. This book was so sweet and I really enjoyed that. I really enjoyed this book’s world too.

I just had a lot fun reading this book, this was just a really great reading experience for me.

Amazing listening experience

The narration for this book is amazing. The characters really came to life and it was even better then I imagined them. I loved going back to the Tower. Jet is an intriguing character. I loved the vulnerability he shows but also he has this amazing strength. And when he steps into his Sin, just wow. I just wanted to hug Taylor. I loved him. He's so sweet and special. I was so glad he found Jet. And Maya and Thursday definitely stole some of my heart as well. This was an awesome addition to the Tower series.

Such a great story

This was another winner by E.M. Lindsey who has become one of my favorite authors. Their ability to write unique and memorable characters is amazing. Jet and Taylor’s love story was an interesting one and sometimes pulled me out of comfort zone. The narration was perfection and helped draw me into the story.

phenomenal story!!

Outstanding! Phenomenal! I absolutely loved Jet and Taylor! Taylor is a photographer. He lives a simple life but he never expected Jet. Taylor had been cheated on in the past. Jet is one of the sins at the Carnal Tower, sloth and blind since he was a teenager. He feels stuck at his job ever since a session went wrong. He feels caged in. Waiting on Forever was so good, it sucked me right in. I listened to the whole story in one sitting. Michael Dean did a great job with the narration. Overall, a phenomenal listen! The story kept me engaged, I literally could NOT stop listening to it!

Just as good in Audio

I have a habit of listening to books that I have already read. I love to go back and visit great characters and this book is a perfect example of that. Adding Michael Dean's voice to these characters was a great bonus. I enjoyed reliving the complexity of these characters. The message this story delivers. And the sexiness that comes with exploring a sin. Will come back to listen again.

Deadly sin Sloth

This second book of the series in Sloth is such a fantastic listen! The narrator does justice to the storyline and the characters. The main characters meet in a definite unusual way and then comes the rest of the story! Wonder what the next one in there series will bring?

Jet and Taylor

Waiting on forever is the second book in the series ( after shades of lust) and I absolutely love the idea behind the carnal tower. The plot is amazing and the chemistry between the couple is off the charts. Jet has never had a real relationship and Taylor’s last relationship was a disaster and ended when he was cheated on by his then boyfriend. So both MCs are struggling to come to terms with their feelings for the other person. Jet is incredibly patient and sweet as Taylor deals with his doubts and insecurities about his self worth. I wish the “grand finale” scene (between jet/sloth and Taylor) would have been a little longer / spicier, but I overall loved this book and I am looking forward to taste of greed which is the third book in the series.

The narration of the book was amazing. I love Michael Dean! He was a fantastic choice for this book

An instant connection

Jet being the embodiment of Sloth is employed at Carnal Tower where he works with the other seven men.
When a photoshoot at the mall, leads him to meet an intriguing photographer Taylor, their instant connection is undeniable.
With them both having obstacles to overcome, their relationship is slow to build but one that is worth working on.

A captivating tale that is full of emotion and multi layered characters that will draw you in from the first chapter. Jet with his persona as Sloth and Taylor with his vulnerability are two unique characters that were well suited despite their differences. I enjoyed seeing them come together and build a relationship.

The narration was captivating and drew you into the world of these characters. The smooth story telling keeps you engaged and invested in this story. Definitely recommend.

Amazing

This series is so good. The Carnal Tower is more than a brothel: the men who live and work in the Tower perform a service that encompasses so much more than just sex. And these men are definitely hot and deserving of finding their HEAs. I loved Jett and Taylor. Michael Dean adds so much to this story and did such a great job with his narration!
