“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 that fateful Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. What she 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, three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make Avery want things she believed had been irrevocably stolen from her. Getting involved with him is dangerous. Yet ignoring the simmering tension that sparks between them—and brings out a side of her she never knew existed—is impossible.
Some things shouldn’t be kept quiet . . .
But when Avery starts receiving threatening e-mails and phone calls, she’s forced to face a past she wants to keep buried and acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. If the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface with one less scar? And will Cam be there to help her?
And some things are worth fighting for . . .”
Overall Rating and Review Blurb
Book Review for “Wait for You”
Readability: 5 out of 5 Tree Stars
This story was a finish in one sitting kind of book. This novel hooked from the moment Avery plowed into Cam in the hallway! (You’ll understand when you read the book 😁). “Wait for You” features mature themes that might be triggering for some people. Nonetheless, the story is an enjoyable read.
Plot: 5 out of 5 Tree Stars
There is a mystery with both Cam and Avery’s past that drives the story along. The intrigue sucks you in every time and makes you want to continue reading. Knowing what happened when they were younger shaped them into who we meet at the beginning of the book.
Characters: 5 out of 5 Tree Stars
“You’ve been checking me out, haven’t you? In between your flaming insults? I feel like man candy.”“Wait for You”, Jennifer L. Armentrout
Oh boy! Where do I start with Cameron Hamilton? Cam is very high up on my “Top 5 Characters” list and I wouldn’t have it any other way. He always had me cracking up with the outlandish things that would come out of his mouth and don’t get me started on his turtle, Raphael. Cam’s friend Ollie was also a joy cause when you got them together, it was hilarious.
Wow Factor: 5 out of 5 Tree Stars
“As long as the sun’s shining, shit can’t be that bad.”“Wait for You”, Jennifer L. Armentrout
Avery’s strength after everything she has been through was a big wow moment for me. As well as learning about what happened to her and how her parents handled the entire situation. I can’t imagine going through that at any age but especially when she was so young. And with Cam’s back story, I appreciated that he knew he messed up big time in the past and really grew from it.
This series has stuck with me since the first time I read it. Both Cam and Avery have been through a lot and going on the journey of them finding each other was really emotional. This would be a book that I would love to experience again for the first time. It’s a book that always gets me out of a reading slump and I treasure it dearly. Once you are done with “Wait for You”, I recommend “Trust in Me”. It’s Cam’s POV of “Wait for You” and really gives the reader an in-depth look into everything.
