Title: Wait For You
Series: Wait For You, #1
Author: J. Lynn
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

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..

Wait for You starts out with Avery starting college a long ways from home. She wants nothing to do with her life in Texas anymore, so basically running away to college was the best thing for her. While there she meets Cameron by literally running into him. From that day forward they start building a friendship. 
But Avery has never really had a boyfriend, and she's still trying to move on after what happened to her at a Halloween party five years ago.

And Cameron also has a secret, but Avery doesn't seem to notice it so much since she's too busy trying to keep her own. And along the way Avery and Cameron start having feelings for each other, more than friendship type of feelings.

I really liked this book. I had a hard time with rating it, because I think it is more of a three point five star, not quite a three, and not a four. So I will settle with three stars. I really loved how Cameron treated Avery. He was okay with being her friend, but he also didn't try hooking up with other girls while they where building towards something. He was caring enough to wait for her, and that made the book so much sweeter. Avery was somewhat heartbreaking in my opinion. I felt like she had never really healed, and didn't know how to even begin to heal. But Cameron helped her want to be better.

I sort of felt like the story was stretched out. Like some of it was just filling space and didn't have many major purposes. So I got kind of bored, but other than that the book was good. And I may end up reading the next one in this series as well.
