" 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."
I give up. It's been a while since the last time I read J. L. Armentrout and my only experience was Lux series. Obsidian surprised me and I liked it despite all Twilight similarities. Or maybe because of that. I don't think it would make the same impression now. I know that most of my friends liked her new adult novels, so I thought to give it a try. Do I regret that? Yes and no.
Things that I liked. First half of the book. Cam. Their interaction. Cam. Sunday breakfast. Cam... You get the picture. No one can say that J.Lynn doesn't know how to write the perfect guy or make you frustrated with all the hormones bursting from every page. But is that the only thing that I found appealing in this book? Pretty much.
Things I didn't like. Second half of the book. Avery. Avery's issues. The whole good girl/virgin thing. If you know me, there is nothing surprising with any of those. But here's the thing that cooled me off completely. I know that talking about topic of rape is really serious. I know that it's something that should be talked about. I am all for that, but what I hate is when something so serious is used on such a superficial way and because of drama-drama-drama. And if that wasn't enough, throw in an attempted suicide, gay best friend and promiscuous girlfriend. This is overflowing with all the new adult cliches - ones that annoy me. Avery acts like she is ten years younger than she actually is, she is goody two shoes and all the other girls are "easy" or "slutty". That is not the message I support in my books.
Not even Cam is worth it. Yes, I swooned. Can you blame me? But than I started thinking and I realized that it can't be valid reason for all the high ratings. Think with your head, not your ovaries.
But that is just me - if you enjoy reading books like Wait For You, go ahead. This is where I leave "J. Lynn/ Jennifer Armentrout" train.
