Description on Goodreads:
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.
I’m not gonna lie. It took me a year to read this book. I kept picking it up, putting it down, picking it back up again, loving it, setting it down, etc etc. I didn’t finish this book until a few weeks ago.
And I regret not finishing it immediately.
I fell in love with the characters almost instantly when I first started, but because of life, I never really gave it the time it deserved. I never took the time to really get to know them, get the gentle flow of J. Lynn’s writing.. Until I got sick at my husbands family reunion.
Avery is a bit like me.. Quiet, reserved, shy, and a hell of a lot of trust issues. And she has her reasons. I really identified with this book for many reasons. I highly suggest it.
I really like the open ending with it, and hope as I pursue the series, I get to see a conclusion.
My Rating: 5/5
Would I/Who would I recommend it (too): People who love contemporary, people who love a light smut, people who have anxiety issues.
