Review- Wait For You by J.Lynn

Summary-

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…

Review-

Wait For You is a new adult contemporary romance by J.Lynn aka Jennifer Armentrout. I had read an excerpt of this one before so I was super excited to get to it. I like J.Lynn's writing style. It is nice and engaging. It keeps you hooked to the book and hooked I was to Wait For You.

Avery has moved halfway across the country to get away from her parents and past. In the new college all she hopes for is to make a few new friends and move on ahead in her life without grabbing attention. I liked Avery. She was a sweet and hesitant girl. What happened to her was sad and cruel but she was brave enough to want to change her future.

What Avery doesn't expect is to bump into Cameron Hamilton on her first day. She tries to stay away from him but Cam is determined to pursue her. Cam was a totally swoon worthy guy. He was witty and charming and funny. His ego was miles long but that is what made him so perfect for Avery I think because he could actually take the hits of rejection from Avery.

The romance between Avery and Cam was slow building. They are only friends for the first half of the book with Cam doing his best to change their status. I loved how things progressed gradually in the relationship. The romance was amazing. I loved the banter between Cam and Avery. Avery's friends were just as funny.

Wait For You is slightly long for a new adult read but I so wanted a happy ending for Cam and Avery that I flew through it. The book moves from Avery's first person point of view. I would have enjoyed getting into Cam's head but it is what it is. All fans of new adult romance and Jennifer Armentrout should go ahead and read Wait For You.

    And I'm sold! I love slow burning romances that start out as friendships, they're the best kind IMO. :)

  3. I remember buying this book the day it was out but then there were so many negative reviews on goodreads and I never picked it up. I'm so glad you liked it. I love that their relationship started with friendship, it's cute. Great review, Janhvi =) I'll definitely try to read it in April, I mean it's by JLA, I should love it :)
