It’s Wait for You as you’ve never seen it. Trust in Me lets you in on Cam’s side of the #1 New York Times Bestselling story.
Cameron Hamilton is used to getting what he wants, especially when it comes to women. But when Avery Morgansten comes crashing into his life – literally – he finally meets the one person who can resist his soulful baby blues. But Cam’s not ready to give up. He can’t get the feisty and intriguing girl out of his head.
Avery has secrets, secrets that keep her from admitting the feelings Cam knows she has for him. Will persistence (and some delicious homemade cookies) help him break down her barriers and gain her trust? Or will he be shut out of Avery’s life, losing his first real shot at the kind of love that lasts forever?
Quick & Dirty: Fan’s of Wait for You by J. Lynn will love this retelling of the story from Cam’s POV. I personally enjoyed it even more than the first book.
Opening Sentence: Jase Winstead was a cruel motherfucker.
Cameron Hamilton is a total chick magnet and he knows it. With a player reputation and a college full of beautiful girls Cam can have his pick of anyone of them. Until he meets Avery Morgansten, she seems to be totally immune to his charm. Cam has always had a soft side for the underdogs and Avery comes across as a lost puppy. The more he gets to know her the more she intrigues him. Cam’s never thought any girl would turn him down for a date, but Avery turns him down flat the first time he asks her. For some crazy reason Cam can’t get Avery out of his head. He is determined to get her to say yes eventually. But Avery has secrets that she may never be willing to share. Secrets that could end their relationship before it really even gets started. Can Cam gain the trust of the one girl he actually sees a real future with or will she keep shutting him out?
I loved reading this story from Cam’s POV. For me it was even better than the original story. In Wait for You Cam is this charming, confidant, arrogant guy that never seems unsure of himself. But when you get inside of his head you find that he’s not as confident as he comes across. He never knows what to expect from Avery and that is confusing for him. You get to see the vulnerable side of Cam that you never got to see in Wait for You. I loved every minute of being inside his head. There are so many reasons to love Cam and Trust in Me gives you even more.
This was a great read for me. You get all of the best scenes from the original story and what Cam’s take on them were. There are also many new scenes added which made this story unique and different from the first. You get to learn more about Cam’s family and friends. Also, in true J. Lynn fashion you also get lots of sexy steamy scenes. Jennifer’s writing has a way of making you really feel the emotions she is trying to get across, it is so engaging and hard to stop reading. Trust in Me also set up the next book in the series perfectly. You get little hints about what is going to happen next and Be With Me is one of my most anticipated reads for 2014. I would highly recommend this to anyone that was a fan of Wait for You, you will not be disappointed. Also, you could start with this book as well, it could be a standalone. Either way, you should really read this story. It is an emotional rollercoaster, but it is totally worth the ride!
In that moment, I realized I was seeing a very different side of Avery. One I’d never seen before, where she was lively and carefree, and fucking perfect.
“I’m going to marry that girl one day,” I heard myself say.
Jase choked on his beer and bent over, dragging in deep breaths. “Holy shit.”
