    Description

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Swooon!

    What a romantic, slow burn audio book!

    Haley Cass is going to be huge in the lesfic genre! I absolutely loved this!

    Lori Prince was once again amazing! She has great comical timing and can tell the heck out of a story!

    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.

    Now I want to know more about what happens with Sutton and Charlotte, but beautiful story and I adore how you told the characters stories and POV.

    Not for me

    Too much late adolescent young adult angst for me personally. This book has good writing and an excellent narrator but the story was just not for me. Perhaps I have reached an age where I am not able to connect with these characters, or perhaps the story seemed so unrealistic to not draw me in. The entanglements around a dating app parents and good friends just seemed over the top. If you want a good listen with a lot of sexual identity angst, fear of being publicly outed, and plots associated with political families then I highly recommend this book. The characters are likable and there is engaging dialogue. I wanted to like this book. I would try another book by this author. It is not that I think this is a bad book; it simply wasn’t for me and I never got into it.

    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.

    So many emotions!!!

    I read Those Who Wait, almost one year ago. I stayed up the entire night, even though I had to go to work that morning, because I just couldn't put the book down.

    Earlier this week, I decided to listen to Those Who Wait and the experience was absolutely mind-blowing.
    I made a 21 hour book last probably 42 hours because even the slightest interruption or distraction would make me hit that 30 second rewind button at least 6 or 7 times. I didn't want to miss a thing.

    Lori Prince makes this book come alive. The pauses, the tone of voice, the emotion, the arousal it's just...wow.
    I'm not sure who I'm in love with more, right now. Haley Cass, Sutton Spencer, or Lori Prince who I can still hear that voice of hers in my head.
    Yeah, I think I'm broken. I think I just found my new addiction. My Audible stats are already concerning but now that I've just been introduced to "listening" to lesfic, this might be bad or really really really awesome.

    Back to Those Who Wait. Sutton Spencer has got to be the most loveable character I have ever experienced. She's absolutely perfect and Lori Prince does an excellent job in portraying her. Don't get me wrong, Stunning Charlotte Thompson is great but Sutton is well, she's Sutton.
    I highly suggest both reading and listening to Those Who Wait. It's just that good!

    Wow

    👉🏻 Wow. Just wow. I think I will need a few days to process this book. It was a rollercoaster until the end and I had to shed a tear or two—no, honestly, I was actually kind of devastated because it gave me so many feels. With almost 630 pages or 21 hours of listening time, it transports you into the world of 2 wonderful characters.

    💡 But first things first. In the forefront are 25-year-old Sutton Spencer, a literature student at NYU, and 28-year-old Charlotte Thompson, deputy major of New York, who is running for the House of Representatives.

    Sutton is naïve, sometimes awkward and shy, but incredibly amiable. Throughout the story, her character develops the most for me, and that’s very visible. I wasn’t that fond of her at first, but eventually fell completely in love with her. Charlotte, on the other hand, is in the midst of her life and knows exactly what she wants, but when Sutton enters her life, she has to question her ideas about the future. I just loved them both in combination. I think they fit together so perfectly because of their differences—they complement each other.

    I found the side characters annoying in parts, to be honest. I don’t know if that was intentional or just me. But except at the end, I didn’t find them driving the story. Overall, it doesn’t matter because the actions between Sutton and Charlotte drive the whole narrative anyway.

    The story is a mix of friendship, romance, passion and politics. I liked the political part because it makes it stand out from other love stories. Of course, a story about “friends with benefits” screams conflict and drama, which never actually occurred up to a certain point. The characters never really had any miscommunication or arguments, and if they did, it was very short-lived. They base their entire relationship with each other on honesty and communication. In the end, I thought the author was breaking with that, which ultimately didn’t turn out that way.

    ♥️ I absolutely loved the ending—especially the epilogue. I wish it had been longer, and we had learned even more, but that’s complaining on a high level.
    I can easily recommend this story heartily. Yes, the length of the book is daunting, but the plot is entertaining and draws you in. And... believe me, some action between the two is worth it. 😉

    etwas langatmig und vorhersehbar

    Geschichte ist jetzt nicht sonderlich originell, Beschreibungen ziehen sich alle etwas, zum Teil völlig unnötig, Charaktere sind leicht nervig, bis anstrengend. Obwohl die Leserin durchaus bemüht und begabt ist, wirkt die Wahl der Stimmen in einigen Szenen völlig uncharakteristisch. Habe nach einigen Stunden aufgehört zu hören.

    21h of Audiobook bliss

    This is my first book by Haley Cass and boy what a start. Very careful created characters with just the right amount of backstory. while listening to it i felt cheerfull to have found it. This book containd themes like politics, toaster oven, dating site and friends with benifits.

    Narration: This audiobook is narrated by Lori Price. As always she does a fantastic job. She brings the characters lo life with her voice.
    With 21h it’s quit a long audiobook, but it is 21h of bliss.
