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 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…

     Some of you know that my favorite author is Jennifer L. Amrentrout (A.K.A J. Lynn). I love all of her books, all of her characters, everything. So, I was really excited to read this book and it did not disappoint, not one bit. Jennifer L. Armentrout did it again, she weaved a tale of love, despair, and healing. All of it was great, the characters, the plot, the story in general, are just outstanding.

     The plot in this book had so much depth to it, like all of her books do, but this book felt like it had more depth and reality in it. I think that's what really made me love this book, because it didn't just feel like a made up story, it felt real. I like books that have a plot that feels like that and Mrs. Armentrout did this very well, because it was deep, but not to deep that it felt like you were suffocating. It was deep and real, but it was also so extremely funny in moments. There was so many times when I was reading this that I bursted out laughing.

     These characters were so well written. A good example of that is our main character is suppose to be broken inside and I've read some books were the main character is suppose to be like that, but they never come across like that, but in this book you can feel that shes broken. In some places in this book she gets tired of being scared and she gets made at herself and the world and my heart broke for her. And the character development in this book was great. You could see Avery get stronger throughout the whole book.

     My one problem in this whole book, was how in some places it felt like the story skipped. Like the characters were in the middle of a conversation and then the chapter would end and it would be days later. I wanted to read the rest of the conversation.

     One of the best things about this whole book was the relationship between Avery and Cam. I felt real and not fake. It didn't feel one bit forced or unrealistic. And because you feel such a connection with the characters you want them to fight for their relationship, you want them to try. The only thing that was a little off with me was how I never really understood why Avery was always pushing him away.

     This book is an outstanding book about learning to love and heal. It broke my heart in some places and then stitched it back together only to break it again. Read this book, you will not be disappointed, not one bit. And if you don't read this book you will be missing out on another fantastic Jennifer L. Armentrout book.
