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?
Some things are worth waiting for… I will always wait for you Cam.- S&M
We have to start by saying that just the mere mention of this title makes us get all dreamy eyes, sighing school girls type with a deep affection for cookies, but only if they’re baked by Cam. Lovers of this book will understand.
However if you haven’t read this book, we’ll begin by saying “Sweetheart,what are you waiting for? Get to a bookstore ASAP!”
Wait for you tells the story of Avery Morgansten and Cameron Hamilton, two unlikely characters with troubling pasts and buried secrets.
Avery just started college as far away from home as possible to escape a past that haunts her and changed her. The last thing she expected was to run into swoon worthy Cameron Hamilton.
Cameron Hamilton is a cocky, overtly confident guy who is also the sweetest, most patient man you’ll ever meet.
“You’ve been checking me out, haven’t you? In between your flaming insults? I feel like man candy.”
A chance encounter in which plowing was involved (do not think it’s the good kind of plowing) brings them together disastrously while following fateful events keeps throwing them into each other’s path. Not only does Avery realize that Cam is her six-feet-three-inches-holy-mother-of-god-blue-eyed-hot-across-the-hall-neighbor, but they also share classes together and run into each other everywhere.
Cam: “We have to stop meeting like this.”
And that was the truest thing ever spoke. I needed to stop staring at his bicep… and chest… and tattoo. Never thought the sun could be so… sexy. Wow. This was awkward.
“You running over me, me almost running over you?” Cam elaborated. “It’s like we’re a catastrophe waiting to happen.”
For some unknown reason to her, Cam seems fixated on getting to know her. Her reluctance only fuels his determination on getting her to go on a date with him (asking her out daily, for months) becoming so insistent that we found ourselves yelling at Avery “Just go out with him already” throughout the book.
“Go out with me.” He asked.
“No.” I whispered, and then the dimple appeared in his cheek.
“There’s always tomorrow.”
I followed him. “Tomorrow’s not going to change anything.”
“There’s nothing to see. You’re wasting your time.”
“When it concerns you, it’s never a waste of my time,” he replied.”
From the religious Sunday Breakfasts he cooks for her (I mean it’s BREAKFAST) to the deliciously baked cookies he brings her, Cam proves to be a dreamy, swoon worthy guy who puts every other fictional character to shame. His patience is endearing and never ending, setting him aside as a memorable and captivating book boyfriend. We could go on and on, but I think you get our point.
Avery: “I’m beginning to think cookies is a code word for something else.”
Cam: “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.”
Eventually Avery accepts going on a date with him, attempting to move on from her dark past. She realizes that Cam is different, is not just about his totally-hot-my-panties-just-dropped looks but also about how big of a heart he has and how much he proves to her that not everyone will hurt you and that true love is worth waiting for.
“I want you to know that I’m serious. You’re not a hook up. You’re not a friend with benefits. You’re more than that to me.”
