Title: Waiting For You 
Author: Shey Stahl
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

Bailey Gray is tired of her perfectly planned life. Everything about her life has been organized and lived out to the expectations set of her parents. She is the class valedictorian, has perfect grades, the perfect friends, a perfect boyfriend, basically perfect life...or so everyone thought. That's when she realizes the path planned isn't always the path chosen. 

On graduation day she makes a decision. One that changes everything she thought she knew about her intended future.

On a whim, she runs away with the town rebel, Dylan Wade, in search of the unknown.

Dylan Wade isn't looking to run away from anything.

He knows what he wants as he's been waiting on it for years.

On a journey to find the unknown, they discover a friendship they once knew along the open highway and have not a care in the world. Between the yellow and white lines of the heated summer asphalt, a spark draws them together as Dylan's past and Bailey future try to ripe them apart.

Could it be that Dylan and his GTO are exactly what her perfectly planned life needs?

This book starts out with Bailey deciding the life she is currently living, and the path she is on isn't what she actually wants. She is not who she really wants to be, she is who everyone else wants her to be. So on graduation night she decides to tell everyone to go screw themselves she's going to do what she wants to do, and she does and that leads her to Dylan Wade. Dylan Wade is the bad boy she has know since she was three years old, he's always held a piece of her heart, he was even her first kiss. But Bailey didn't keep in touch with him, and hasn't actually spoken to him in years. So when he offers her the opportunity to run away with him, she doesn't hesitate she just takes it. 
Now the story continues with Bailey and Dylan going on a road trip city by city with no plan of where life will take them, they are just going to live in the moment. As they  continue to do this love that seems to have always been there starts to blossom with strength now that they are getting to know each other all over again. 

I really enjoyed this book. It invoked so many different emotions in me, that I wasn't sure to be pissed, laugh or cry with everything going on. 
Dylan is hiding something from Bailey, and dark secret that could possibly rip them apart, but he continues to hide, even though Bailey knows somethings wrong.  
There were only two things I didn't like at all about this story, that actually made no sense to me, and really made both Dylan and Bailey seem very "cheap" and not sincere in what they actually felt for each other. 
The first thing is what happens when Dylan meets Sway. And then when Bailey meets Nate. I'm not going to say more about that because I do not want to ruin anything in the story, but seriously I could have done with out this crap it really held no actual meaning in my opinion in this story. 

I'm not sure if there are more books about Dylan and Bailey but I wouldn't mind figuring out what happened to them later on in life. I really did enjoy the end of the story, I was extremely happy with what happened, and it really made the whole story worth reading in the end!
