While you are waiting for us to post to our review of Walking Disaster, I finished but we are waiting on Heather to finish up. I am going to post about a book I read last week. Everyone has been raving about Wait for You by J.Lynn aka Jennifer L. Armentrout. I love her books really I do so I was hoping that this would be 5 stars for sure… it wasn’t for me but it was very close. I hope y’all pick it up and give it a shot because it has a very sweet guy who has a pet turtle!
Wait For You by J.Lynn
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…
Rating: 4 Stars
This review is going to be hard, I loved Cam and his baking, turtle owning self. I did not love Avery, I didn’t hate her or even dislike her but her actions just made it hard to love this book completely. She was a child, I get that something terrible happened to her at a young age and that probably messed her up. However, she refused to tell anyone about it even though we could tell they kinda knew. The ending was so sweet and towards the end I was getting super nervous because Cam still didn’t know and I kept seeing that this was a series. My mind just kept going to the bad place where scary cliffhangers live. This is the place where characters die when they shouldn’t and I was terrified! I also am not sure that the parental aspect was that believable. I am just not sure. The best friends Brit and Jacob were fun but I never really felt emotionally invested in their story. The only thing I keep thinking is thank goodness there was not a cliffhanger. Anyway the main reason this story gets 4 stars is because of Cam. He was so sweet (I loved that he called her sweetheart) and the fact that he never pushed her except for her to trust him just made me love him more. The sunday morning breakfast! I think my favorite thing about this story is the progression of their relationship. I love that they started as friends , sort of, but then worked their way up to dating. Him constantly asking her out was a great part of this story. It would probably make any woman swoon! A couple of times he was a d-bag but honestly Avery deserved it! He has his own secret to tell and I wish we had learned more about him. This story would have been perfect if it had alternating POVs! Anyway its still good so I think you should give it a shot. While reading it I felt more content than I do now writing this review.
