GoodReads 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 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 Thoughts 

This book was just what I needed right now!! Now I understand why everyone is raving about it. I was smiling from ear to ear while reading this book. I love the fact that Avery and Cam relationship took time to develop- it was well paced. Avery is a girl with some sort of issue from her past who has run clean across the country to escape it with hopes of living in anonymity, but she's met this guy that really likes her. I mean, he really likes her, and he isn't giving up until she likes him back. The thing is, well, she actually kind of does really like him but she doesn't want to admit it and she really doesn't want to admit it to herself either. Every time Cam asks Avery to go out with him - DAILY - she turns him down. Avery was raped when she was fourteen while being at a Halloween party. The parents of the young boy who raped Avery paid Avery to switch her story. Avery parents and including herself was paid to deny the rape. She was bullied because of it so that scarred her for life. Meeting Cam was like meeting her Hero.


Cam is fantastic.

Cam is persistent and continues to shower Avery with his awesome friendship.  They spend a lot of time together; he bakes for her, he makes her breakfast every Sunday. Seriously, my favorite part of this book was the slow building friendship turned relationship between these two.  Most of this book felt like foreplay! Although I felt like smacking Avery in the head a couple of times, I really liked her.  It was nice seeing her go through so much growth, letting people in, building friendships and coming out of her shell.


The love between Cam & Avery was…….
