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…
Ope’s Opinion: I am struggling with the new genre New Adult. I was really hoping to find some new exciting authors to read. I haven’t had much success so far. I did like Colleen Hoover’s book, but I have not found another author in this genre that I am willing to read their second novel. I did not find this book captivating at all. I finished it because I was stuck in an airport and on an airplane.
The characters are suppose to be in college, but they are not intelligent enough to use anything, but foul language. Their conversations are are frustrating. Cam and Avery have the same “will you go out with me” conversation over and over again. The secondary characters are stereotypical – gay best friend and best girlfriend who wishes the guy was into her – nothing wrong with either character, but not new or interesting.
The mystery is not really a mystery ( easily figured out in the very beginning ) and I don’t think the subject was really dealt with directly.
The one positive thing I can say is that I thought the title was very fitting.
Rating: Two Chairs – I may have one friend who might like to read this book.
