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 loved Wait For You by J. Lynn. One of the things I love about Wait For You is the journey from building Avery and Cam’s friendship before they have a relationship. But it has to be done right and be able to keep me interested and not boring. J. Lynn nailed it with Wait For You. Their friendship was a journey I loved reading about and her characters kept it going with cute, fun humor that never got old or boring.
When Avery was a young teen, a bad incident happened to her that left her broken. She is an only child and her parents were not around much. After the bad incident she needed her family and friends the most. They all turned on her. For years she had no more friends and never dated, that is until she left home to attend college across state to start a new life. She meets Brittany, Jacob and Cam in college and forms a friendship that she has not had in a long time. I loved how she was a strong will character and really tried as much as she could to put the past behind her. I love how J. Lynn portrayed Avery’s character. It was realistic, especially after what had happened to her in the past. It is not a light matter. Now Cam who is hot and well known around campus is showing interest in her. He ask her out and she declines. From there they build a friendship. Deep down inside she is interested but does not know how to handle it.
Hands down Cam is the most swoon worthy hero I have read. Right from the beginning his swoon moments start and never stops. I loved how he was there wiping her tears when ever something bad has happened. The best are the Sunday breakfast times they have together. The love and patience he has for Avery is amazing. Cam has been asking Avery out for months before she finally says yes. It is fun and cute the way he would slip it in with their conversations. Cam is a sexy tattoo, charming hero with a great sense of humor and it is not cheesy, just adds so much more to his character.
“Oh, God, no.” Cam said. “This is Candy, Mom.”
His mothers eyes widened and a bit of color infused her cheeks. “Uh, I’m...”
“I’m Avery,” I said. Shooting Cam a look. “You had it right.”
I love how his great personality brought Avery’s fun personality out too. He makes her feel happy and alive again. The banter between them is pure fun. He is arrogant and she gives it right back at him. I loved how he has a pet turtle name Raphael.

“Everything about me is thrilling.” he replied.
“About as thrilling as watching your tortoise cross a road.”
“Uh-huh. Keep telling yourself that sweetheart.”
Wow! Once they become a couple they are hot together. The sex scenes are steamy and well done. I loved how he is patient with her and never pushes her any further till she is ready. The sexual tension is smoking hot.
"Guess What, Avery?"
"What?" I wondered if he could see how fast my heart was beating beneath my shirt.
"Remember how you just said you were having a good time?" Cam lowered his head so that our mouths were scant inches apart. "It's about to get better."
"Is It?"
He shifted his head and his nose grazed mine. "Oh, yeah."

Their relationship does have a few bumps along the way, that were at times heart wrenching. The best is their characteristics never change once a couple, still cute and playful with each other.

He kissed the center of my back then his lips were on the flare of my hip. Warm breath danced over my lower back and then he kissed my right cheek.
I giggled, wiggling.
"You know what they say about a guy who kisses a girl's ass? Literally?"
"He knows his place?"
"Ha. Ha." He swept my hair off my neck and kissed me there. "He's absolutely in love with the girl."
Cam has some issues from his past, that he has had to learn how to deal with it. Cam is very protective when it comes to his family and anyone he cares for. He can get jealous at times but it is not overly done.
The only thing that bothered me was the constant mentioning of Cam’s striking blue eyes from Avery. Other words were used too but always had to mention the eye color. Yep got it quit a few times in the beginning. Did not need the repeat. About halfway through it stopped with the mentioning of eye color and would just mention striking eyes etc.
I loved the secondary characters. Jacob was a hoot and hilarious. Brittany was a good friend to Avery. I loved whenever the three of them were together added so much fun moments in the story and never took away from Avery and Cam’s time. Cam’s room mates are fun too. It was never boring or felt like fill ins just to make the book longer. Cam’s parents and sister were great and funny. We get a little insight on something bad that has happened to his sister Teresa. Very excited Be With Me (Wait For You #2) is coming in 2013. I hope it is about Teresa. Wait For You is a great start to a promising series. Highly recommend for all New Adults fans and Adult romance fans looking for an awesome read with realistic characters that jump of the pages. Wait For You is a keeper for me when I am in the mood for a good friends to lover novel with a swoon worthy hero.
