Jennifer L Armentrout (writing as J. Lynn) has shown again why she has such a loyal following. Whether she is writing as Jennifer L Armentrout or J. Lynn, it doesn't matter... I have yet to be disappointed in anything she has put out. Wait For You was no exception and in fact I think this is actually my favorite book of hers to date.
Honestly, even now as I am trying to think back to when I was reading it I can not for the life of me come up with something negative to say. Not that a review must always have something negative but of course there is usually always something... something that doesn't quite sit right... something you wish would have been done a little different... or maybe somebody in the book that annoyed you just a little bit. But with Wait For You there was none of that for me. I started the book as soon as I was able to download it, which thankfully was a few days earlier than expected, and I could not seem to put it down. From start to finish I was absorbed with the characters and the story.
I connected right off the bat with Avery. There is no mistaking that something has happened to her in her past but the history of that trauma is slow to unfold as the story progresses. This enables the reader to come up with their own conclusions but then you are still a little surprised when the full truth was discovered. Even though I have never gone through anything like what she had to face at a young face I still felt that connection. She is such a likeable character and you want nothing more than for her to heal and be happy.
And then there is Cam. Wow. Jennifer has proven in the past that she can write good boys and Cam in my opinion is at the tip top of that list. He is just... wow. Not only is he one of the most faithful and trusting guys I have ever read about but he is also one of the funniest. Even though Avery has a hard time coming out of her shell he is patient and never pushes her. Honestly, there is just no describing Cameron. I can only beg you to please read Wait For You so that you can see how truely wonderful he is.
oooOOOooohhhh and Avery and Cam together? H. O. T. No doubt about it there are some high flying sparks between the two of them. But the best part is their banter. If you are a fan Jennifer’s Lux series and you think Katy and Daemon are good at the banter? They do not even hold a candle to Avery and Cam. The back and forth is quick, witty and hilarious. Honestly... SO funny.
Finally we have Brit and Jacob. Avery makes friends them early on in the book and they also bring a great dose of humor. I really loved them both. I am hoping that sometime in the future Brit gets her own book because I think her story would make for some great reading.
Jennifer has managed to perfectly blend a very serious subject with humor, friendship and love. I only wish that this would have been a dual point of view book as I would have loved to be inside Cam’s head. Sadly, it is not dual POV but Jennifer always manages to keep her fans happy with a lot of bonus and pov scenes so I keeping my fingers crossed that we will get one of those soon... I need more Cam!
