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…
I like when books dive straight in within the first chapter or so. Saves time looking for that hook to pull you in and this book kicks off right at the start when Avery runs into Cam. Literally.
Avery has a dark past that holds her back from what/who she really wants. Friendships/relationships and even just socializing by going to parties, Avery’s past is always in her way.
Cam is a cocky guy, but in a good way. He is confident but not in a flashy way. I’d say he was comfortable being himself. I like this trait in a guy. He isn’t afraid to put himself out there. Which he does for Avery.
Cam starts to fall for Avery immediately, and after being assigned her partner in astronomy class, he decides to ask her out. And she says no. That doesn’t stop Cam from asking her again at least twice a week for three months.
The only problem is, Avery can’t see past…well…her past. Having been through a traumatic incident five years ago and having parents that, as the reader, you want to slap in the face, you can’t blame Avery from being a little scared.
However, Cam is ready to take her hand and guide her through everything that is in her way to move on from the incident holding her back on becoming the person she wants to be.
Of course this book contains the ups and downs of all the usual crap relationships have, but ‘Wait For You’ just feels different. It pulls you in to a point where you are living the experience with the characters. You’re wanting them to make it and you’re wanting them to trust one another about their pasts that you’re shouting at the book.
If you haven’t read this book I highly recommend ‘Wait For You’. It’s one of those books that when you finish, you let out a breath and feel satisfied that you took the time to read it.
