Book Review - Wait for You

Wait for You

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...



First, I'm going to start with it is a damn good thing that I didn't read this book before moving into my college apartment or I would have some insanely wild expectations that so far have not happened.

This book was a refreshing change from the books I normally read, which involves a whole lot of hard core fiction, like aliens (although I'm not so sure how fiction that is, but that is for another time), magical creatures, dystopian societies, stuff like that. This was a story about normal people with normal issues (kinda... I'm sure some poor souls out there are dealing with the same thing Avery is though) and falling in love. But they are normal people without all the super badassness of Katy or Alex. Well more so Alex is super badass, Katy is just slightly badass (so far, I just finished Opal). But I'm getting way off topic. Back to the review.

This book started with Avery sharing two fears that I can very easily relate to so I was instantly drawn to read more.

"There were two things in life that scared the ever-loving crap out of me. Waking up in the middle of the night and discovering a ghost with its transparent face shoved in mine was one of them. Not likely to occur, but still pretty damn freaky to think about. The second thing was walking into a crowded classroom late."

This book was amazing!

The characters were wonderful to read. I loved Jacob, ohmygod did I love Jacob. I could hear his flamboyantly gay voice from his very first line before I knew he was for surely gay, which I found out a few lines later.

All of the character's in everything that I have read of this wonderful author's work have such a strong voice. I don't think that a lot of other books have characters with such a strong voice and that is a lot of the reason I am drawn to reading her books.

I think what made this book so good for me was that I could really relate to Avery wanting a fresh start away from the past. She was lucky and got to leave, go a thousand miles away, and I still dream of that kind of freedom of starting fresh where no one knows you.

And Cam, I hope that someday all of us girls can find a man as amazing, spectacular, and wonderful as Cam to marry and be with for the rest of forever.

All in all great book. Five stars go to Wait for You!
