So I’m doing things out of order on this post. Since I’ve already displayed the cover and synopsis for Wait for You I’ll start out with the review and end with the cover/synopsis.
Wow, I definitely devoured this book. And by devour I mean I started it at 10Am, stopped reading at 80% at 2:00Am, went to sleep, went to work, came home and finished it. It was a really good story. I know parts of it may seem really cliche but I thought it was really, really good. I loved the characters. Every. Single. One. of. Them. Avery and Cameron had me laughing, crying, and of course, swooning. Brit, Jacob, and Ollie gave the book the comedic relief I’ve come to love from J.Lynn/Jennifer Armentrout’s books. It was a whirlwind kind of book. My favorite parts were all the “flaws” the characters and romance had. I enjoy books where the relationship feels real. It has ups, it has downs, and when it gets ugly, it gets downright hideous. I loved the inclusion of Raphael, the tortoise, who seems utterly arbitrary, but ended up making a deep impact on me throughout the story. I never knew a tortoise would make me tear up. This book was just an all-around good read. It provided me a nice break from the fantasy world I tend to live in when I’m reading. It was real, it was raw, and it was honest. It was a brave story about moving from surviving to living. And Avery and Cam, they grew up by the end of the book and I loved that. They both evolved from who they were to who they were meant to become. They were well-developed and they were real. Oh and did I mention they were hot? And this book is steamy? Because they are and it is. If you’ve read the Lux series and know anything about Daemon Black, well he might have met his match in Cameron Hamilton. Cam is an all around nice guy, a total sweetheart, even if he is annoyingly confident sometimes. I liked that neither Avery nor Cam’s past was just laid out on the table. Once I found out their secrets I was actually more shocked than I thought I’d be. I was also shocked by the identity of mysterious caller. I don’t want to give anything away thought so I’ll leave it at that!
Disclaimer: This book is in the genre New Adult. There is some strong language ( e.g. f-bombs) and some sexual content (okay, quite a bit of sexual content) so if this isn’t your thing then beware.
Some things are worth waiting for…
Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself.
Some things are worth experiencing…
Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so… so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.
Some things should never be kept quiet…
But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she’s has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?
And some things are worth fighting for…
