Wait for You (Wait for You #1) 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…

4.25-4.5 Stars

“Go out with me,” he asked, running a hand through his wet hair, pushing it back from his face. 
“No,” I whispered.
And then the dimple appeared in his cheek, and I let out the breath I was holding. He started up the steps. “There’s always tomorrow.”
I followed him. “Tomorrow’s not going to change anything.”
“We’ll see.”
“There’s nothing to see. You’re wasting your time.”
“When it concerns you, it’s never a waste of my time,” he replied. 

Le Sigh. The very first thing I have to say is that I FUCKING LOVE CAMERON! Ok, there I said it. Sorry folks, but I had to get that out first. Cameron has joined my elite ultimate book boyfriend shelf. He made this story awesome. 

Okay, now that I have that out of my system, onto my review :)

“If a cookie was a code word, whatever it symbolizes, it’s been in your mouth, sweetheart.” ~ Cam 

Fine. I confess. Cam never really left my system. LOL. I love him too much to not repeat some of his memorable lines. Seriously. The guy can get underneath your skin like no other. He’s beyond swoon-worthy with his adorable dimple, his sexy smirk, his tattoo, his abs, his ability to cook eggs and his pet tortoise, Raphael: He was just simply fucking adorable! **sigh**

Anyway… **giggle**

He first met Avery when she accidently ran into him on her way to their Astronomy class. It also turned out that he lived down the hall in the same apartment building as she. It seemed like Avery couldn’t shake this guy loose, but then again why would you want to. But then again, Avery is a whole new level of messed up.

Avery. OMG. There were times where I wanted to slap her. I’m telling ya’ll right now: You need all the patience in the world to deal with Avery. Seriously. What is up with these heroines I’ve been reading lately? My palms have been twitching a lot lately. Sheesh! I know, I know, she has issues, like huge, massive ones. She’s attending college far, far away from home because she is running away from her past; life in her hometown has simply become unbearable. After an incident at a Halloween party when she was fourteen has left her with no friends, and an unsupportive family. No wonder she’s one hot mess. Then along comes Cam and slowly, like really, really slowly her life begins to shift for the better. 

“I’m serious about you, Avery. If you want me for real, you have me.”
Closing my eyes, I placed my hands on his chest. “I want you for real.” 

I LOVE Jennifer Armentrout’s style: She’s able to create memorable characters and her execution of telling a story is near flawless. Though there were definite fun times and laughter in this story, which is classic Armentrout style, there were some very mature subject matters that were dealt here. I would like to dive into them, but alas, I cannot do that without giving out spoilers. Though I was expecting more of an adult novel, this read more like a New Adult/Mature YA book: Yes, there were smexy scenes, but not as much as they were in her previous J. Lynn books. 

I must confess, the first 70% of the book, you were left in an unending state of unsatisfied bliss. LOL. In other words: Sexually frustrated! Not to mention the emotional toll the story took: I was spent. No seriously, this book will do that to you. 

Sexual frustration aside, the first 55-60% was awesome. Cam was awesome. He made this book. The middle part, like 60-70% in, I started to become depressed and the book just took on a whole new gloomy path. After the 70% mark, it started to pick up again. It seemed like ages for my emotional heart to beat again. This was definitely one roller coaster ride of a story, but overall, I really and truly enjoyed this story and highly recommend it. Just remember to pack a fuck load of patience; cuz Avery’s character will drive you insane. lol
