So, after reading Clockwork Princess and dealing with all the heavy, I decided I needed a new adult romance to make me feel better. SO, the plan was to start to Wait For You last night. And I stayed up and read the whole darn thing. Woops!
When I first posted I got this back on an old STS, everyone was like, "You've got to read this, you're going to love Cam!" And love him I did. Cam was an awesome character and he was so fun to read about. He's confident, proud, protective, and thoughtful. And persistent. Oh is this boy persistent! :) But in such a good way. Come on: who would turn down a guy that comes over and makes you breakfast every weekend and bakes you cookies? Really?!
Avery on the other hand, really drove me a little nuts. I understand that she had something horrible happen to her, and she is still dealing with its aftermath 5 years later, and that she is learning how to trust, but I think she should have had a little more faith in Cam than she did, especially after he was willing to open himself up to her. I'm glad she finally realized what she had to do to gain closure because you don't let guys like that slip away.
Jacob, Britt, and Ollie, while all secondary characters, were definitely our comedic relief in this book. There were a couple points where I chuckled out loud at something Jacob had said. All three were great friends to both Avery and Cam, and I was glad J.Lynn wrote them as she did.
Overall, I really loved this book, because I like seeing characters overcome a difficult point in their life and realize that they can't let the past overshadow their future or happiness. Watching Avery and Cam learn how to trust each other and fall in love was definitely the best part of the book! (Well, maybe second best part- after all it's Jennifer Armentrout. And we all know that woman knows how to write some swoon-worthy scenes. HELLO- have you met Daemon or Aiden?)
