Some things are worth waiting for…Quickie Review:
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…
Wait For You is another enjoyable New Adult read, similar but different to all the other NA contemporary romance books that are inundating the market. The story grabbed me from the start and kept my full attention throughout. Avery has a traumatic past that she must come to terms with. Cam is the hot boy who breaks through her shell... eventually... and has a bit of a past himself. This book is full of the snarky characters and witty dialogue I've come to enjoy in JLA's books. While I liked Avery enough, Cam was the real scene stealer of the novel. He saved this book from being just another NA novel. JLA really broke the mold creating Cam and I hope he does many cameos in the upcoming companion novel(s) of this series.
