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 was one of my favorite books of 2013 so far. Avery has issues – she’s a freshman in college that’s somewhat ran away from her past back home – and the memory of what happened to her one Halloween. She keeps her distance from most people. She lives alone in a small one bedroom apartment and doesn’t have many friends. In walks Cameron Hamilton – well Avery basically slams into him running to class and thus begins a tortured friendship. Not tortured in a bad way – but in a good way. Cameron has to break down all Avery’s walls to get in and show her that she can trust him. Little does she know he’s closer than she thought – both figuratively and physically – living in the same apartment complex. Now he’s every where she turns.

Avery and Cameron play off each other really well. They have real chemistry that’s both sexy and funny. He won’t let her blow him off – even when she tries and tries again to push him away. But Avery is carrying around secrets – that keep haunting her in forms of blocked phone numbers and emails. Her past threatening to come forward and shatter her present life that she’s slowly starting to rebuild as a new person. She’s not sure she can handle it – and Cameron doesn’t even know what the hell is going on – almost until it’s too late.

Coming October 22nd 2013: Trust in Me – Cameron’s POV story – I can’t wait!!!!

*FAVORITE QUOTES*

“I’m beginning to think cookies is a code word for something else.”
“Maybe it is.” He tugged on my bag again as he took a confident step back, forcing me down another step. “And just think about it. If cookie was a code word, whatever it symbolizes, it’s been in your mouth, sweetheart.”

“Leaning back against Cam’s chest, I tipped my head back and I reached up, cupping his cheek. I drew his mouth to mine and kissed him softly. “Thank you.”
His lips curved up on one side. “For what?”
“For waiting for me.”

“You’ve been checking me out, haven’t you? In between your flaming insults? I feel like man candy.”

“As long as the sun’s shining, shit can’t be that bad.”

“My brain was telling me this was a bad idea and I told my brain to shut the fuck up, because it rarely told me anything helpful.”
