Summary(taken from Goodreads)
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…
J. Lynn is a pseudonym for Jennifer L. Armentrout, author of two very popular ya paranormal series Lux and Covenant. As is often case with popular young adult books, I haven't read them yet but I heard a lot of praise from my friends. So, when opportunity to read and review Wait for You presented itself, I jumped to it.
After reading Wait for You I must say I do not regret my decision. Ok, maybe I regret it a little bit since this book kept me awake long after midnight. I could not put it down until I finished it. The romance was so intense and I devoured it with baited breath. So be warned, make sure to have a lot of free time because when you start reading, because Wait for You will become glued to your fingers.
Wait for You may not bring anything new to the new adult contemporary romance market. You have probably read similar stories before about heroine who goes to college, has scars from past but some handsome playboy and a group of friends help her to overcome them. But Wait for You held my attention, it's a very well written romance novel.
One of my favorite aspect of the book was relationship between Cam and Avery. It was intense, it has slow-building, it has a lot of snark. They kept pushing and teasing each other and I enjoyed every single wordplay. I do not like relationship that miraculously happen, I liked it that they had to work at it.
If you are looking for a perfect summer read and you love new adult contemporary romance novels set in college, I warmly recommend Wait for You. You'll get swoon-worthy hero and that happy buzz from real friendship. On the hot sun the pages are just going to melt away...
