What another awesome, wonderful, fantastic book by Jennifer L. Armentrout! In addition to being the master of all things YA, JLA consistently writes books with amazing plots and even more amazing boys; and Wait For You did not disappoint!
I loved Avery and Cam's relationship! Not only is Cam completely wonderful and (almost) perfect in every way possible, but he is also great for Avery. Avery, who definitely has some major problems that still haunt her, is a strong yet reserved girl and protects her heart with an iron cage, and a lock and key for safe measure. Cam knows this about her and continues to stick by her side, asking her out almost every day of the school year until she finally says agrees, giving her the time she needs to come to terms with him and how much she truly likes him. I absolutely loved watching the two of them get to know each other as friends and people before rushing into a relationship; their witty banters and heated tension seemed so realistic in the way that all of JLA's characters and plots always do!
Besides excelling at romance and relationships, JLA also did a great job of tackling some real life issues in her book. Both characters have had some troubling events in their pasts, and each of them (Avery, especially) are so used to hiding everything and trying to shove down bad thoughts and problems rather than dealing with them; as Avery says constantly throughout the book, her "fight or flight" response kicks in, and she always chooses flight. Though it takes time for the two to adjust, they eventually learn to count on and trust each other so completely, and I loved watching both characters experience that.
One quick thing to note about this book is it's classification as New Adult, rather than Young Adult. The only difference, it seems to me, is that it is a tad more explicit when it come to Avery and Cam's physical relationship. Depending on your age, if that sort of thing bothers you then I would shy away from NA, since I am assuming that there will be a lot of that in other books like this. Personally, I'm not sure how much all of these details actually added to the overall quality book, but I loved it nonetheless.
This is the first NA book that I have read, and if they are all as awesome as JLA's book, then I think I will have to check out some more NA in the future. I loved loved loved the characters, the plot, and the writing, and everyone who loves romance, JLA, and great books should definitely check out Wait For You!
