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 everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple.... Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring their simmering tension 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 has no other choice but to acknowledge that she will not be allowed to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, can she resurface this time with one less scar? And will Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?
And some things are worth fighting for...
I really liked reading this book. I love the writing style of J.Lynn/Jennifer L. Armentrout. This is the third book of hers that I have read and I have enjoyed them all. She writes compelling characters that are sexy, funny, and smart. This book was a nice combination of young adult and new adult.
Both Avery and Cam were great characters. Avery being neurotic added to her character. Being late to class and having everyone stare at her was a nightmare and I think that's completely relatable. Brit and Jacob were great background characters. They were Avery's cheerleaders, but were direct with her when she needed some cold hard truth. Avery did do a few irrational things that was really surprising for such a logical person, but I think it had more to do with what her secret was than anything else.
Avery and Cam's relationship developed very slowly. Avery was not ready for anything, but Cam was super patient and wooed her. Their friendship/wooship was super cute and you couldn't help, but fall for Cam. I usually do not like guys who refer to females as sweetheart, babe, (or any other cutesy name), but it worked for Cam. It didn't come across as sleazy, but natural.
I would definitely recommend this and can't wait for the next book.
