Genre: NA, romance
Synopsis: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 would keep this review simple with not much elaboration. I will use a lot of gifs to express my thoughts LOL. NOTE: All the gifs were taken from tumblr. I don't own them neither created them. All rights go to the respectful owners.
“As long as the sun’s shining, shit can’t be that bad.”
Meet Cameron Hamilton. The oh-so-swoon-worthy guy. He likes baking, frying eggs and petting Raphael (his turquoise). Isn't he just adorable? And yummy.
I really liked his character; he is open, bold, sweet, caring and really patient. Although I was a little cynic about his "perfect" physical description, his attitude totally made way for a developed character. He can be very cocky, but not to the point that it gets on anyone's nerve. His cockiness brought out the humor to the story. And not to mention......he got this. Yup. DIMPLES.
Meet Avery. A catastrophic past hunts her until the present. It made her scared to alot of things; she goes very jumpy and anxious when it comes to socializing and "touching". At some point her character can really irk me especially if she's too stubborn and too wimpy, but Jennifer Armentrout handled her "condition" in a way that it won't be a dole-out and just be realistic.
Cam and Avery 's relationship.
But then because of Avery's wariness and being a closed book about her past, they go...
It took them a couple of "space" for them to be together again and to fix the shits. It amazed me how Cam handled everything although it hurt him so bad. With the help of Jacob (fabulous character) & Brit (sassy chick) they were able to realize a lot of stuff.
“We are your friends. It is the law of friendship that you tell us things you don’t want to tell us.”
But ofcourse with trust and all the shits that go with commitment. I felt the emotions and that unwavering connection between them.. And then they go back to this...
This book has to be a good NA with a couple of steamy scenes. The characters are likable especially when they engage in a battle of wit and flirty banters. I really liked the chemistry of Cam & Avery, they are just so cute, yet sensual when they are together. A combination of dark past, angst, humorous dialogues, romance, and steamy scenes, JLA has done it again!
