Wait For You by J. Lynn

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…

Avery is fresh out of high school and starting college across the country. All alone, away from her family, her home and her small town... She needed to leave, she was suffocating, she was scared and the taunts and gossip were never going to let her forget.

It's been years since Avery has had a friend and although weary, she finds herself becoming accustomed to collage life... That is until she is swept off her feet by Cameron, literally. Being with Cam is... Easy. He's thoughtful, polite, and comes in a packaged deal with Rafael, his pet turtle. Soon Avery finds that her friendship with Cam feels foreign as she starts to develop feelings for him. She can't trust him, and her secret could destroy any relationship she has with Cam, even before it begins. Can Avery overcome her past and heal? It's time she faces the fears that hold her back, beginning with her parents.

It was a touching story of how friendship can be the basis of a beautiful and loving relationship. It's far more realistic than most New Adult books and the character development didn't feel rushed. Avery is a strong character who really does survive a harrowing experience and shows that, with help, that she deserves to be happy and free of her past. My only complaint is that I was hoping for an epilogue... I really needed an epilogue! Unless there may be a new series on the horizon f0r Jennifer L Armentrout fans.

  1. Wait For You sounds very interesting. I usually only read romance novels during the summer when I am looking for something quick to read.

    1. Hi Carol and thanks for commenting. I thought I would read a few light and fluffy romances in between my usual dystopian, apocalyptic and paranormal reads, but they are becoming a chore to read. I find that there are no surprises with new adult anymore.
