Summary: 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…

My Review: Y’know, for my first real NA read, this wasn’t so bad. I’ve noticed there’s a pattern that these kind of books follow and this book fit perfectly into it. If it had been written by any other author, I’m going to be honest, I probably would haven’t have liked it as much as I did, or I might have even put it down. But I love Armentrout, I mean, come on.

Cam, the main guy character, reminded me of a human version of Daemon Black and I was a thousand percent okay with that. There was even a cookie reference in here.. Did I mention I love this author?

so cute

Avery was annoying as hell, I’m not even going to beat around the bush with that one. I don’t know if it was just her personality, or the way she handled things, but there was just something I couldn’t stand with that woman. But all the ‘side’ characters and, of course, Cam, made up for all of that.

When I read this summary, I was hoping there would be more mystery. I was thinking this was going to be like a single story Pretty Little Liars NA novel and I couldn’t have been more excited to read it. I just wish that there had been more creepy emails, or texts and calls, and mystery. If I could add one more thing to this book, it would for sure be that. Because drama. Lots and lots of drama.


Overall, this was exactly what I would expect from a NA novel and if that’s what you’re looking for, this is for you. If you want something deeper, I would look elsewhere.
