    After reading this book I dont think that cookies and eggs will be the same for me.AveryAvery is starting college but all she wants is to start a new life.Just consider how lucky she is.She is living next to a HOTTIE.CamThey are both attending astronomy and that brings them closer.Cam is determined to go out with her so he is asking her everyday but she is always turning him down Go out with me Avery No See She keeps turning me down Jacob shook his head You re an idiot Avery He wants to be close with her so every Sunday he sneaks into her home to make her breakfast.Ususally their breakfast is such a funny time and they are both enjoying it 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 As you all understand she fell for him and they finally went on a date Cam s kisses Goodnight, Avery And then he kissed me kissed me like he d had right before he d left the night of our date Kissed me like he was a man starving for oxygen and I was the only air he needed to breathe The hand around my neck held me there, raised up on my elbows as his mouth devoured mine And that was the only word I could use to accurately explained how he kissed me.Cam devoured me This book was so funny but both of them were hiding a past A past that they wanted to forget.It was pretty obvious what happened to Avery and I was very sad because she didnt deserve it.No one does.It kind of hit me when Cam told her what he did.Why I loved Cam He is charming and hot He is not your typical jerk but nice and funny.He definitely has panty dropping eyes and he is that guy that you d be proud to bring home What I really loved about him His comfidence So you guys weren t than just friends with benefits Cam sent me a widening glance We hooked up once in a while but like I told you this weekend, I haven t been with anyone since I met you I know It just seemed like she wanted Wouldn t you Geez we really need to work on your confidence Why I loved Avery She is sweet and innocent.She isn t clueless , she is smart and knows how to hide her emotions.Cam s parents were amazing and funny people You listen here, woman You can listen to my foot up your ass if you call me woman again Avery s parents were You are lying You are ruinning our lives All in all, this was a perfect read for me.This book combined both humor and real life problems.

    I am conducting what I m shelving as a New Adult NA Experiment I m going to work my way through some of the popular New Adult books and see if I can weed out the crap and hopefully find some surprising gems Here s hoping I m almost tempted to just give Wait for You 5 stars because I haven t laughed this much at a book since I don t even remember when I m laughing while writing this review there s no one else in the house, so that s kinda creepy I guess and it s really not funny, to be honest I just can t This book And this author It s too much On every level It makes all the usual cheesy mistakes that a NA contemporary romance tends to do, it uses characters I ve seen too many times to count good girl, reformed bad boy, gay best friend, evil slut who wants reformed bad boy but it also does something that I don t see too often Something that brought back memories of a book I read a couple of years ago A book called Half Blood So when I discovered that Ms Lynn is actually the same author using a new name, I couldn t help letting out something halfway between a laugh and a choking sound at the sheer lack of originality in her books.Half Blood is, I don t feel unfair in saying, a complete rip off of Vampire Academy Please, be my guest, read it if you don t believe me Tell me that you can t spot all the main characters and scenes being regurgitated with different names Tell me that the whole pure bloods and half bloods thing isn t taken straight out of Mead s work and planted in another I would not make this claim lightly because it s a serious thing to accuse someone of, or less, plagiarism But I believe that s what it is And plagiarism is not okay I don t think quite as serious a claim can be laid against Wait for You, but yet again I see evidence of recycled scenes and characters that tells me on some level, originality has failed to surface in her work once .Avery Morgenstern is a new arrival at a college in a town far away from her home She enters on her first day and walks literally into the hottest guy in school The reformed badboy playboy whatever Everyone wants him He could have any girl in their college And yet, for some reason I have been unable to fathom, he only has eyes for Ms clutzy new girl They naturally find themselves paired together for a class project astronomy class which offers much in the way of star gazing material He wants her She says no because she has issues She s not like other girls Needs saving constantly Blah de blah I ve seen this all in a million different things I don t think I need to point out the glaringly obvious oneOh yeah, and did I mention that she meets him and starts going loopy over his muscles on page 2 And I really wish she wouldn t blush so much What s with so many YA NA heroines being so prudish I m not talking about Avery s personal issues with sex here I ll get to those later , it doesn t take anywhere near sex to make her blush I understand it when she walks into Cam hot dude , I would have blushed in school if I d walked into the hottest guy there But I don t understand it when she s talking to her friends and they ask her if she thinks a guy s hot I would have talked shamelessly with my girlfriends about the hotness of guys at twelve years old, never mind nineteen Some of the things being thought said in this novel are ridiculous Hilarious for a while, but ultimately ridiculous Cam lays it all out straight away with I m used to having girls throw themselves at me and Jacob flamboyant gay friend bursts onto the scene with lines like this I don t want my fine ass to be tainted by sitting on that floor They re all like caricatures and I can t take a single one of them seriously I also wish someone would inform romance authors that petnames suck I don t care if it s sweetheart or sunshine or baby or kitten vomits they all suck and infantilise women in a way that just irritates me Blood drained from my face and rushed to other parts of my body in a really odd and confusing way What exactly is odd or confusing about that Are you twelve Why is this hot I m a lot to handle, but I can assure you, you ll have fun handling me I ve met drunk perverts in bars with better lines than that.There s some crazy wish fulfillment thing going on here with Cam He s one of those obscenely beautiful male figures with an arrogant personality that I assume we re supposed to find sexy and clearly, from the ratings, many people do But I just found the lines he came out with either cringy or hilarious Or both He walks around shirtless most of the time with his perfect muscles rippling oh my god, I will not miss the endless descriptions of his perfect muscles A beautiful woman called Steph spends her time hanging all over him with her breasts bursting out of her clothes, and yet he never notices He says things like Avery Morgansten, we meet again eye roll We have to stop meeting like this eye roll And I don t know whether this was, for me, the best or worst bit of the novel Cam took a bite of his cookie and closed his eyes A deep sound emanated from his throat a growl of pleasure My heart jumped and my cheeks heated even as I stared at him He made the sound again, and my mouth dropped open A row down, a girl turned in her seat, her eyes clouded over. I laughed so much It s a cookie It s a fucking cookie Can t Breathe For Laughing Most of what I ve said so far has been on the funny side of bad but now I m going to move onto a couple of things that really bugged me One was the treatment of Steph s character I know I sound like a broken record and that fact makes me very sad, but I think it s important to keep pointing out the way women are categorised by their sexuality in so many books The way flirtatious and sexual women who wear revealing clothes are automatically evil and given no further character development Steph is that character here She s the one who Cam hooked up with before Avery ever came on the scene, and she s also the one that gets brushed aside like an old rag who can t possibly have any feelings when Cam decides Avery is a special kind of girl who s worth than being screwed and dumped It s okay to screw and dump Steph because she s that kind of girl This is Avery telling Cam how she s different from Steph I m not like that Like what he asked.So he was going to make me spell it out Of course Why not I m not like her I don t just hook up with guys for fun, okay Thankfully, Cam calls her out on it Well, he calls her out on the fact that she doesn t even know the girl she s talking about and so she shouldn t jump to hasty conclusions Fair point But then there s also that bit where she shouldn t place girls into categories based on how sexually active they like to be whether she knows them or not.The other thing that really bugged me was when Jacob asked Avery are you gay because she didn t want to have sex with Cam It really bothered me that someone was made to feel like they had to be attracted to a certain type of guy because he was soooo pretty And the only other explanation was that she must be gay Stupid.I have one last comment and it s about the dark secret of Avery s past are we really not supposed to know what s going on We know she s running away from something Something a guy called Blaine did to her Something that makes her have issues with sex and physical contact Something that made people call her a whore and a liar Oh, what could it possibly be Er, no I can t be the only one who had her dark secret pinned from the start, right Blog Leafmarks Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr

    Review posted at Swept Away By Romance Charming 4 1 2 stars I very much enjoyed reading this book It was one of the most endearing, touching, and fun friends to lovers tropes I ve read in a long time I adored and swooned over Cam Oh, how I LOVED him , sympathized with and understood Avery, and felt they shined brilliantly together I did feel this book leaned toward Young Adult in content than New Adult, but that s why it appealed to me There was a freshness and youthfulness to this book that I loved It was refreshing to read a YA NA plot where I felt the storytelling made sense and was neither manufactured nor contrived to elicit artificial rather than real emotions I felt everything these characters experienced and I loved it I had a great time reading Wait for You This wonderful story overflowed with angst, laugher, and sexual tension I highly recommend this gem of a story.

    An extremely sexy, entertaining read Every aspect of this story was engaging from the lovable characters to the quirky dialogue and superb writingI fell head over heels in literary love with this story Avery Morgansten has a secret one that has her fleeing to the other side of the country to escape Her cold hearted parents are a despicable source of authority and Avery enters her new college completely alonethat is, until her sexy run in with Cam People got out of the way for Cam He was like a hot Moses, parting the sea of drunk college students Cameron Hamilton is perfection I m talking top notch, state of the art, book boyfriend material He s smart, sexy, funny, confident without being cocky, and adorably patient and understanding His infamous playboy ways didn t stand a chance against the beautiful and mysterious Avery The build up to Avery and Cam s relationship was a breath of fresh air Although they had an instant spark, I appreciated the slow and steady, getting to know you process Avery s tormented past hindered her ability to trust and getting her on a date was no easy task for Cam But I loved his persistence and their flirtatious banter had me giddy You ve been checking me out, haven t you In between your flaming insults I feel like man candy This author excels in creating vivid scenesevery situation came alive and felt authentic The love scenes were tastefully descriptive, sensual, and just flat out breathtaking And that first non kisswow But, what I loved most about this story was the connection I felt to its characters It s so important to care about the fate of these fictional beings, and some stories lack that personal feel that was so strongly present in Wait For You. I truly loved all the main characters, and although Avery held my sympathy and adoration, Cam stole my heart Amazing Book Stats Genre Category Romance New Adult Steam Caliber Maximum steam Romance Slow build up Tension filled Sexy, sweet connection Characters Sweet, adorable, persistent hero Guarded, damaged, but lovable heroine Plot Fun and fresh, with just the right amount of depth and angst Writing Sexy, engaging, and addictive POV First person Heroine Cliffhanger None Next Installment Spinoff HEA view spoiler Yes hide spoiler
