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…

This is another New Adult novel that seems to be sweeping the UK. There is some serious issues in here. Yet, the story doesn't feel heavy. I liked that. I don't enjoy books that make me feel weighed down by the character's problems. I have enough of my own. 

There is book is also full of mature content. I'm talking graphic sex here. Let it be known I told you. I was a bit shocked and I'm no prude. It felt more like erotica to me. Personally. Watch out. 

This is a story about life and love. Life isn't easy. It isn't easy for anyone. Especially not Avery. She moves across the country to West Virginia {my home state!!} for college just to escape her problems. She's got a hot neighbor too. You literally watch their love blossom. They get to know each other well. I'm not an insta-love kind of girl so I appreciate when a couple takes the time to get to know each other and become friends first. 

Avery and Cam have a lot of get through before they can truly be together. Cam is waiting for her. It's sweet. It is romantic. It's shocking all the little details you find out. This is one of those novels that is perfect for your holiday away or a rainy day. It is perfect for a little escapism. 


  1. Good review:) Love the cover, sound like a great book:)

  2. I'm not an insta-love fan either so glad to hear there is none of that in this book! I am excited to read it :)

  3. I like new age/adult contemporary books like these because they're realistic. Good review.

    by the way, new follower here :)

  4. I'm looking forward to reading this book! It does sound a bit... racy, but I think I can handle the heat ;)


I love to hear what you think.
