Some things are worth waiting...

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 really liked Wait For You and I was waiting desperately to read it, thanks to several the teasers that the author post in her blog and I bought it as soon as it was announced that it was for sale. Wait for you is the first New Adult novel written by Jennifer L. Armentrout under the pen name J. Lynn.

Wait For You is a bit predictable, but otherwise I really like Jennifer's writing, it is simple, funny and with a swoon worthy male protagonist ....In fact, all the guys in this book are super sexy and super hot.

This book is told from Avery´s POV. She´s is a girl that because of something happened to her years ago, she is insecure, she doesn´t trust people and is trying to leave her past behind, so she choose a college away from home and where nobody knows her, hoping for a fresh start .

Cam .... what can I say about Cam ....... if you have read Obsidian written by the same author, you will know what I´m taking about when I say that Cam is like Daemon Black but a light version of him or Daemon after Onyx (or as a friend of Goodreads says: version 3.5). Cam is gorgeous, sexy, he has no shirts because almost all the time he is without one, he´s confident, a little arrogant, but he is also sweet and patient with Avery.

And I like all of the secondary characters, they´re an very interesting group, first we have Jacob and Brit, they´re Avery's friends, these two very funny and very lovable. And we also Ollie and Jase, they´re Cam's friends and my favorite is Ollie, he´s super cute, a little crazy and he gets along very well with Avery.

Wait for You is a New Adult contemporary romance novel, it has its funny moments, its sad moments and a happy ending, but it´s a bit predictable, but a very good story and if have you read any books written by Jennifer L. Armentrout and you liked them, you definitely will like this book and if you have not read a book written by her, you can start with this book if you are over 18 years-old or if you are under age you can begin with the Lux series.

I really liked Wait For You, the first book of the trilogy, and I can not wait to read the next book - Be With Me (it will be Jase and Teresa´s story).


  1. Great review. I can't wait to read this one.

  2. I have yet to read a book in the New Adult genre, and I think that one written by J. Lynn might be a good one to start with. The summary is very intriguing and mysterious. And the requisite hot guy. It is all there. Sounds like it may be a good one. Other than the predictability. Thanks for the review!

  3. Great review! This one sounds really good

  4. wow i read review to want to read book i do the book now in the person and then the author are great writer

  5. Wait for you sound like a really great read, and since it was written by JLA i am sure it will be more than worth reading. Thank you so much for the review. I will be adding it on my goodreads right now.

  6. I haven't read any of her books yet but I've been meaning to get started on her Lux series :) However, I'm currently in the mood for NA/ Contemporary Romance books right now, so I'll probably give this one a try ;)

  7. Cool review! I love Jennifer Armentrout's books! I can't wait to read this.

  8. Loved this one! For some reason, the characters really worked for me and the slower pace of the romance fit. Thanks for the review!

  9. I am now becoming a big fan of Jennifer Armetrout. And this definitely looks like a book to be added on my TBR. Lovely review <3
