Waiting on Forever by E.M. Lindsey

E.M. Lindsey continues her Carnal Tower Series with Waiting on Forever, bringing to light the contrasts of pleasure and sin and exploring Sloth in a whole new way...
From the blurb:

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

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


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.

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

Another amazing addition to the Carnal Towers series with Sloth!

“ʜᴇ’ꜱ ᴀ ᴘᴇʀꜱᴏɴᴀʟɪᴛʏ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ɪ ᴀᴄᴛᴇᴅ ᴏᴜᴛ, ᴛʜᴇɴ ᴇᴍʙʀᴀᴄᴇᴅ… ᴀɴᴅ ᴛʜᴇɴ ɪᴛ ʙᴇᴄᴀᴍᴇ ᴘᴀʀᴛ ᴏꜰ ᴡʜᴏ ɪ ᴀᴍ.”

Every time I’ve read E.M.’s books, their disability inclusion touches me to my soul. Their ability to bring disability to life, tackling the stigmatism regarding sexual intimacy, continues to wow me. And this addition has done just the same as their others, leaving no room for questioning.

“ɪ ᴡᴀɴᴛ ᴛᴏ ɢɪᴠᴇ ʏᴏᴜ ᴀʟʟ ᴏꜰ ᴡʜᴏ ɪ ᴀᴍ, ʙᴜᴛ ɴᴏᴛ ʜᴏᴡ ɪ ɢɪᴠᴇ ꜱʟᴏᴛʜ ᴛᴏ ᴍʏ ᴄʟɪᴇɴᴛꜱ.”

Omg, Jet and Taylor were overwhelmingly perfect for each other! Their connection was instant, laced with a lot of sexual tension. Their chemistry was fiery hot, with a passion mixed with intense desire. While also conquering the anxieties felt by each other m, leaving me completely satisfied with yet another great read!

Absolutely loved Maya’s character, her sassy personality fit perfectly in the picture. And of course, sneaking some Sins in was absolute brilliance! So excited for King’s upcoming release!!

This series just goes from strength to strength! I can't sing it's praises enough, there is something about EM's books that get me every time. I wish a place like Carnal Tower actually existed. The concept of a brothel where gorgeous men walk around embodying deadly sins? Where do I sign up?

Taylor was such a gentle soul that let far too many people mistreat him, with the exception of Maya, I need her as my bff. The moment he met Jet, I knew he would wake up some carnal desires in him. I absolutely loved Jet's alter ego, Sloth. He was an intriguing and exciting character. He had such an alluring presence and I just wanted more scenes with him.

EM did such a brilliant job representing his visual impairment and the struggles he faced. Taylor also had his own issues. I loved how they communicated and respected each other. Waiting On Forever was passionate and swoon worthy. With a brotherhood of sins that have their own merits and complications. I feel like we are just scratching the surface of them in this book. Every character left me wanting more. This is an excellent read that left me feeling all gooey inside.

Heather's Review:

Waiting on Forever is a study in contrasts, hope and courage... and a book that had me pulled in from the first chapter to the last!  

Jet, the beautiful Sloth, hurt and reeling, vulnerable in more ways than one, befriended by not one but two strangers in an unlikely place - the mall... but so strong and self-aware...

Taylor, gentle and sweet, vulnerable in his own way, hurt in a different way... and yet, strong and capable and protective in his own right...

The journey that these two men take, and the strength they take from each other is beautiful. 

Once again, this is a slow burn romance that builds between Jet and Taylor, but that's not the full story...  so many layers, particularly surrounding the Carnal Tower, Jet's job and how their relationship will progress...

Beautifully written, wonderfully paced and a book I am sure to re-read again and again...  Waiting on Forever could be read standalone but is better read as the second book in the Carnal Tower Series, after Shades of Lust
