Review: ‘Wait for You’ Series

Over my winter break I purchased my very first New Adult book! For awhile I’ve been extremely hesitant to read NA, thinking that I was not quite mature enough to read that genre. However I decided to give it a shot and pick up a book written by one of my favorite YA authors- Jennifer Armentrout. Wait for You is written under Jennifer’s pen name, J. Lynn. After finishing it I had to continue, so here are my mini reviews for each book in the series.

*Minor spoilers ahead, but I will warn you and the spoiler section will be separate from non-spoiler section*

Wait for You:

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Where do Wait for youI even begin?! This book was fantastic! Going into it I was a little nervous because I wasn’t sure what to expect, but boy aren’t I happy that I did pick it up. I was hooked from the first page, I literally couldn’t put it down. I stood up the entire night reading and ended up finishing it in the morning. Never in my life have I ever had to stay up reading, I would always fall asleep!

What I loved the most is how you can really connect with the main character Avery. Her internal struggle throughout the book was evident and felt real which I really appreciated. The chemistry between Avery and Cam was unreal, in a good way. You could tell that Cam truly cared for Avery and was more than willing to help her cope with her difficulties. Overall it was super cute and would definitely recommend to mature readers!

 

Be With Me:

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Once again I was sucked into another world that I never wanted to leave. It was interesting tbe with meo read about two characters whose romance was hinted at in Wait for You. Teresa and Jace’s relationship was super complicated, which bothered me at first but as the story continued I realized that these complications were exactly what they needed. Whenever Teresa was annoyed, I became annoyed, whenever she was happy I was happy. Jennifer Armentrout has an incredible talent of making the readers feel what the characters feel and I absolutely love that about her writing.

SPOILERS: Another aspect about the book that I enjoyed was how Teresa had to learn to accept that she will never become a professional dancer. She felt lost and had no idea what she was going to do, which is the feeling a lot of college freshmen encounter. Granted most freshmen don’t aspire to be dancers, but most of them don’t know what direction life will take them. I liked that JLA added that in because it made the situation more realistic.

Stay With Me:

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Hstay with meonestly, this was probably my favorite of the three- but not at first! I actually wasn’t a huge fan of Calla’s character at first, she came off as a bit whiny but as I continued reading I realized why she acted the way she did. One of the reasons why I liked this book more than the others was because there was a bit of action in it which made it 100 times better. There was also a great message, I’m not sure if it was intentional, that imperfections make you unique, not ugly. Calla grows so much throughout the book by taking chances and reevaluating events in her life. I loved this book so much and will encourage everyone (that is mature enough) to read it!
