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 Morgansten life changed five years previous, a moment where even her own parents turned on her when she needed their love and support the most. Now she is nineteen, never been kissed or gone on a date and has moved from Texas all the way to West Virginia. Avery knows that this is the right place for her to be. At orientation she makes friends very quickly, two of them that instantly bond well with her. Avery feels like her life is going in the right direction, until her first day of class she accidently collides with the infamous Cameron Hamilton. Cam is well known as the most desired male on campus. He is well liked, charismatic and charming. The type of man Avery wants to avoid, because she knows that he is a player, and the last thing she needs is this man in her life. However, Cam Hamilton from the first moment of seeing her, is intrigued and challenged by her resistance to him. They become friends, and their relationship slowly turns into more as Avery sees a side to Cam she never imagined. But her past is what is keeping her from moving on with her life and finding something real with Cam. Will keeping the truth from Cam ruin any chance she has to keep the man she has come to love?
Plot and Story Line
Now all I want to say….J.Lynn has done it again and I was blown over by Wait For You. This was such a fantastic read here, and I knew that this was a couple I was very eager for. I was first introduced to them in Stay with Me. I loved this pair and it was great seeing them together after finding their HEA. So I wanted to read their story very badly. And it was so worth it, and now I am curious about reading the book with Cam’s POV. This story is all in Avery’s POV. Which was nice, but there were many moments I wanted to see Cam’s side of things. Avery is a heroine you root for in the beginning. She has gone through some really bad times with no one to back her up. Betrayed by her own parents and friends is never easy. She is still figuring out her own strengths and weaknesses. We see how she grows from the beginning being too terrified to go to a party or go on a date with Cam—-to someone that isn’t afraid of those things. But it takes a journey of leap of faiths that Avery has to go through before she gets to find her happy ending. Cameron is quite a delicious hero and I loved how dedicated he is to Avery. He doesn’t have a flawless past, and he is in a position to understand Avery in a way that no one else can. I respected him highly in this book so much, because we see the way he cares for Avery, and is so patient with her. He doesn’t rush her in any way, and I loved seeing the gentle care he gives out to Avery.
This was such a delicious romance because we see a group of aspects build in the story and the side characters were so delightful. I especially loved Avery’s two friends and Cam’s family. And the Tortoise—-he was cool too 🙂 The humor was so perfect because it really added a lighter tone to the story that I felt was needed. Boy did I have many laugh out loud moments. The actual romance was definitely swoon worthy, and so many fantastic moments developed between these two. There is some heart ache, mistrust and these two go through the ringer a bit, but the ending was so perfect for them.I loved seeing their journey together and the way they were able to overcome the past and build a solid present for each other.
“You’re a good guy, Cam.”
“No, I’m not.” He exhaled deeply and his breath was warm against my cheek. “I’m only good with you.”
This narration was superb and I am just falling more and more in love with Sophie Eastlake. Such great talent we have here. I did like the way she used various tones and accents for different characters involved in the story. She also did a fab job with the emotional tone to the book. It wasn’t over played at all, felt just right. Definitely going to be listening to her more.
What a great cover we have here!! I love the tenderness and closeness we see here, with the dramatic shine effect.
Wait For You is a brilliantly written romance that is entertaining, emotionally riveting and simply splendid!! WHAT A PAGE TURNER!
