Review: Wait for you by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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…

Jennifer. L. Armentrout does it again!

I looooved this book! The story is so cute and as always the writing is amazing!
I drained all the power on my phone cause I just had to read this all the time. I had to know more about what would happen!
The whole book you sit there and wonder what it is that happened to Avery, why is she wearing that bracelet, why is she getting those e-mails and calls. It created that mystery to the story. It wasn't just a boy meets girl, they fall in love and live happily ever after. You really wonder what happens and you keep reading cause you want to know what it is, this thing that made her move away from her old life and start all over in another city. Can't say it wasn't a good decision, cause this is where Cam is; "Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes" 
You can't not love Cam! He is amazing! 
He even comes over and makes eggs for Avery. So sweet. 
and let's not forget he has a tortoise named Raphael. Like in Raphael after Raphael from teenage mutant ninja turtles ;)
Cam has some secrets of his own though and they along with Avery's fears creates for some bumps in their relationship. 

All in all this is another must read! It's well written, has a good storyline and if not for that (even though those are good enough reasons) then for Cam's sake.. I'll just make him look at you until you get the book. 

Wait for you

“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.” 

“You've been checking me out, haven't you? In between your flaming insults? I feel like man candy.” 

“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.”  

“I have cookies.”“Cookies?” My brows rose.“Yeah, and I made them. I’m quite the baker.”For some reason, I couldn’t picture that. “You baked cookies?”“I bake a lot of things, and I’m sure you’re dying to know all about those things. But tonight, it was chocolate and walnut cookies. They are the shit if I do say so myself.”
