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 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...

Holy crap on a cracker!

So first off.. that cover.. is it not just absolutely beautiful?? Okay, okay.. On to the good stuff! Wait For You completely blew me away. I laughed out loud. I cried. My heart broke. Truly. A couple times! I was left nearly breathless and I'm sure quite a few shades of red...a LOT. And above all else...I fell in love.. with this book, with Cam, with Avery, with Brit, with Jacob, with Ollie, with the Hamiltons...hey even little Raphael! These characters felt so real and life like. Like they could have existed out there somewhere. Jennifer Aremntrout is seriously gifted that way, in my opinion, with creating these characters that you can't help but adore.

Speaking of. Cam *sigh*. *Swooooon* There are no words. I mean generally I cannot stand a cocky guy. It's such a turn off. But some how, some way, TWICE now she has gotten me into full on swoon mode over some arrogant jerk ..errr confident gentleman. It's a gift I tell you! Ha! Ok he really wasn't a jerk, I just said that more for effect :) 

I feel like such a nerdy fan girl but she is seriously my absolute favorite author. Period. There isn't a thing she can write that I won't devour without stopping except maybe to eat or sleep..sometimes not even then! This book needs to be added to your must buy list. It's funny, tear jerking, steamy, sexy and will leave you with a smile and maybe gasping for air ;) :)

Okay I'll end my fan-girl rant. Don't judge me! lol

And just a warning.. obviously this is a New Adult (NA) book so due to some of the content it's definitely geared towards a more mature "audience".


  1. I'm hoping to start this tonight. I need a "win" after the last book lol ;) Great review x

  2. Yeah I bet! Well this one is definitely a big win ;) Can't wait to see what you think of it!

  3. I have found that Jennifer is really good at bringing characters to life, especially in bigger than life situations. The Lux series was the first of her books that I've read but her other books have popped up in my recommendations on Amazon and I've passed them over for some reason despite the beautiful covers.
    So I guess here's to adding even more books to my TBR shelf =]

    1. She really is gifted in the character creation department.

      Her other stuff is definitely TBR shelf material ;)
