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've been hearing a lot of positive rants about Jennifer L. Armentrout, also known as J. Lynn. And I've been dying to read her books, especially the Lux Series. But since I am in the middle of my craving for New Adult series these past few weeks, I found out about one of her NA titles, Wait For You.

Wait For You is a pretty much good book. A very good one, actually. It is a book with a well-written story along the perfect characters. I wanted to discuss them one by one, but since it's not my forte to discuss characters, let me just introduce you to our main stars, Avery and Cameron.

Avery is a girl with a tormented past. She wanted to forget about everything in her past and start a new life by being independent and study far away from where she came from. Away from her old friends, whom she can no longer trust. Away from her parents who doesn't show her any kind of support. She's starting a new life, making new friends and slowly erasing the dark memories. She's moving on.
“Life wasn't meant to be perfect. It was messy and sometimes it was a disaster, but there was beauty in the messiness and there could be peace in the disaster.” 
That's until she met Cam.

Cam... oh, please come to me, Cam. You're such a freaking handsome guy, you know that?!
“You are really…”
“Amazing? Awesome?” He paused, brows raised. “Astonishing?”
“I was going to go with bizarre.”
“Well, hell, if I had feelings that might actually hurt.”
Cameron, or Cam, is a sweet guy, but a little (or more) arrogant. But his arrogance just adds to his attractiveness. He is fun, witty, sarcastic, and all of that. He's a perfect guy for any girl who wants to forget about her dark past. But, like anyone else, he also have memories he wanted to forget. But let's not talk about that... you better read the book. :-P
“Fuck, Avery. You think I don't want you? There's not a single part of you that I don't want, you understand? I want to be on you and inside of you. I want you against the wall, on the couch, in your bed, in my bed, and every fucking place I can possibly think of, and trust me, I have a vast imagination when it comes to these kinds of things. Don't ever doubt that I want you. That is not what this is about.” 
The thing between the two of them is just... OH MY!!! I love seeing reading about them together. They're just perfect. I love how Cam respected every decision of Avery and I wonder where did he get all those patience he got in him. Avery may always be in the state of denial, but there's now way of hiding how she swoons over cam.

I'm really impressed by the way the author wrote this romance. This is one of those definitely must-read romance books for all you romance lovers out there. I'm currently reading Trust in Me (Wait for You #1.5) which is in Cam's POV! Like OMG!!! I'm so looking forward reading the next book, Be With Me. *grabby hands*
