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….

our thoughts

I’m going to give you some background before I start this review. I have waited for this book. I have counted down the days and waited, patiently. Yesterday morning I got to work and emailed Jackie (who has given me the opportunity to write for her blog) about how much I loved Jennifer Armentrout and how I wanted to ask her to be my wife…in the sense of she will write books and I will read them. That is as far as that marriage will go and it is because I love her writing so much. I love the characters that she brings to life, the plots, and just the fun tone her books take. Within minutes of sending Jackie the email (of me confessing my love for Armentrout) she calls me to tell me that Wait for You came out early and she got it for me. I danced, in my office chair, in front of my co-workers (they know I love books so I don’t think they judged me too harshly.)
Alright, now that I have all of that out, let’s start the review.
I read the teasers that Armentrout uploaded and I was in love with the characters and plot already, just by those few paragraphs. But in no way did I see the actual plot in those teasers. I was so surprised what these pages actually held inside.
Avery was a great character; I felt that she was working on being strong (and continually getting stronger) and just fit with Cam. But I will say that Cam stole the show. His character was so absolutely lovable, free, cocky, and just plain awesome! You can’t go wrong with him; everything about his is perfect. How Cam constantly made an appearance was so brilliantly written that I just sat in my room and giggled while reading. Avery and Cam were too dang cute together!
However, this book isn’t all about giggling; it has a darker side than expected from other Armentrout books that I have read. It was nice to see how Armentrout took on a sensitive subject and worked her magic with it.
Jennifer L. Armentrout, will you book marry me? (NOT IN A CREEPY WAY…I want to make that clear.)
