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…
What can I say? All of Jennifer’s books are amazing and this book isn’t an exception. I read almost all of her books and none of them hadn’t disappointed me. This book was, how can I say? It was somehow easy. I mean, it has a beautiful story which started with a beautiful friendship, but I think that from the beginning was an attraction, not friendship 🙂 But when this is about Cameron Hamilton, it’s natural 🙂 He is the perfect boy: charming, sexy and cute 🙂
This story is about Avery Morgasten who came in West Virginia to start another life. She is traumatized because of what happened at the Halloween party five years ago. She didn’t deserve that thing and she was so little when that happened. It wasn’t fair! Now she must remember that horrible thing for all of her life!
She met Cam when she went to her astronomy class and she was late. She practically ran into him and then she didn’t go to class at all. It was too embarrassing to enter in class after the hour had begun.
They became friends and everyone got crazy when they started dating. Especially Britt and Jacob, Avery’s friends. Cam keep asking her out for a few months, but she said everytime NO. But when she finally accepted, she was already in love with him and was no way back. She went with him at his home, met his parents and his sister and everything was perfect…until the past comes out.
Avery didn’t want to tell him what happened to her when she was fourteen, even if Cam told her all about his past and it isn’t a happy one. But Cam was her first boyfriend and she didn’t want this to end so she told him about what happened five years ago and Cam totally undestood her. Cam was the one who was with her in the hardest moments, Cam was the one who kissed her for the first time, Cam was her friend and then her boyfriend. Her parents didn’t care at all and they are the biggest jerks!
They had a beautiful relationship and I’m happy that Cam didn’t give up when Avery told him no. They were fun, especially with the cookies 🙂 I enjoyed reading this book and ‘Wait for You’ was based on the story, not on sex. Of course, they had sex (I must say that 🙂 ), but it wasn’t the book’s subject. The subject was the real life, the horrible things which could happen in this life.
“I’m beginning to think cookies is a code word for something else.”
„Maybe it is.” He tugged on my bag again as he took a confident step back, forcing me down another step. „And just think about it. If cookie was a code word, whatever it symbolizes, it’s been in your mouth, sweetheart.”
“Leaning back against Cam’s chest, I tipped my head back and I reached up, cupping his cheek. I drew his mouth to mine and kissed him softly. „Thank you.”
His lips curved up on one side. „For what?”
„For waiting for me.”
“I didn’t know what to say, but my heart was racing as he slid his hands down to mine. He placed them on his chest, right above his heart. „I have hope,” he said, his gaze never leaving mine. „I have hope because I love you-I’ve been in love with you, Avery. Probably before I even realized that I was.”
„You loved me?”
Cam dropped his forehead to mine and his chest rose sharply under my hands. „I love you.”
My heart stuttered. „You love me?”
What do you think?
