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.
19 year old Avery hasn’t had the best 5 years of her life. She decided right after college that she was moving from Texas to West Virginia. Away from her parents, friends and family. She knows that this is the best decision. Then again, her parents didn’t really care right? Despite what happened to her 5 years ago?
Avery is starting her first semester of college and she’s already running late. Trying to get to class, she bumps and knocks over Cam. Well, he’s 6 foot tall, extremely hot, and has piercing blue eyes. Turns out, he’s in the same class as her.
Cam was the popular guy in high school, and even in college everyone knows who Cam is. Even Avery’s new friends, Jacob and Brittany. Avery can’t figure out why Cam is so interested in a girl like her. He won’t stop asking until Avery caves to go out on a date with him. But, will she let her past affect her growing relationship? Will this unknown caller keep texting/emailing/calling her?
I’m now (DEFINITELY) to the point where I will read ANYTHING by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Seriously. I can not get over how AMAZING all her books that I’ve read have been. I’ve read now 6 (which includes a novella) books by her! I’m determined by the end of the year to be caught up on her books. Not kidding.
Anyway, back to my review.
I loved Avery and Cam’s relationship to pieces!!!! I can’t describe how much I loved these 2 characters. Sometimes I just wanted to talk some sense into Avery, but then again, maybe not.
I HATED Avery’s parents! I want to go slap them into next week for treating their daughter like that… Like SERIOUSLY!? Who does that?!
One of my favorite things was the relationship Avery had with Jacob and Brittany! I loved all scenes when they were all together. They were absolutely hilarious! Jacob and Brittany are amazing friends and I want them to be my best friends. I loved them!
Cam… Holy cow. Jennifer L. Armentrout knows how to create a male character that is completely swoon-worthy. Every male character that she has written (as main male character) have been extremely swoon-worthy. Cam is definitely at the top of the list that’s for sure. Piercing blue eyes?! Ughh… I can’t. Just the way Avery described his eyes… Holy cow!
Raphael… :) I love that turtle. Even though we don’t see him all that much, I still love that turtle. :)
“And this must be Avery?”
“Oh, God, no,” Cam said. “This is Candy, Mom.”
His mother’s 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.”
She spun around, smacking Cam across the arm. Hard, too. “Cameron! Oh my God. I thought…” She smacked him again and he laughed. “You’re terrible.”–page 181
I whipped around, almost dropping the silverware. “The Notebook? You own The Notebook?”
Cam stared at me blankly. “What’s wrong with that?”
“Oh, nothing is wrong with that. It’s just such a… uh, chick flick.”
“I’m confident enough in my masculinity and sexuality that I can say that Ryan Gosling is just dreamy in this movie.”– page 108
“I’m beginning to think cookies is a code word for something else.”
“Maybe it is.” He tugged on my bag again as he took a confident step back, forcing me down another step. “And just think about it. If cookie was a code word, whatever it symbolizes, it’s been in your mouth, sweetheart.”– page 36
“Leaning back against Cam’s chest, I tipped my head back and I reached up, cupping his cheek. I drew his mouth to mine and kissed him softly. “Thank you.”
His lips curved up on one side. “For what?”
“For waiting for me.”– page 360
