Wait for You: Review & Giveaway

Wait for You
by Jennifer L Armentrout writing as J. Lynn

Barnes & Noble

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…


Going commando and a spoonful of funfetti icing...

First off, I’m extremely mad at you world for not making me read this book sooner. No seriously, WHAT THE HELL!?!?

It seems like lately my life has been nothing, but good books...decent books. Books that are just...okay. I have been drowning, completely submerged in 3~star books. I’ve been sinking faster than the Titanic. Wait for You was my life raft! I’m saved!! ~Cue the hallelujah chorus~

Let me start by twat kicking some of the negative issues people are having with this book. Yes, you figure out Avery’s secret early on, sort of...a little bit. But I don’t think it was suppose to be some big mystery. I think the reader is meant to know, but not know, know?? We know what happened, but not everything. We are given an almost completed puzzle...almost, but there are still pieces missing. Important pieces.

The pacing and development of the relationship was perfect!! The buildup, the tension, the wait!! It was real. It was natural. It was perfect. It teased me. It hooked me. It reeled me in. It was the most amazing, amazing relationship foreplay! I couldn’t tell if I was wrapped around the book or the book was wrapped around me.

I almost don’t want to write a paragraph about Cam because I may be forced to invent new words. He’s peanut butter dipped in chocolate, a spoonful of funfetti icing, the left over milk after a bowl of cinnamon toast crunch. He, is raw cookie dough. He had me at “Whoa.” The commando scene! The cookie innuendo! Where are my panties?? Where the hell are my panties?? Wham, bam, thank you Cam!

Not only did J. Lynn wow me with all things Cam, she showed me the funny. She showed me incredible banter. She showed me intimacy that made me embarrassingly giddy. I’m 31 frickin years old and during the first moment of extreme intimacy she had me burying my face in the bed squealing, kicking my feet, and squealing some more...repeatedly.

There were quite a few editing mistakes, but nothing that drew me away from the story. Just enough to make me go, “Huh, wonder where the editor was on that one?” They were easy to overlook, at least for me.

I can’t say enough about Cam and Avery's relationship. It was drawn out without dragging on. Cam was perfect, the dialogue was incredible, and the story gave me exactly what I needed, at this moment...right now.
