Rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

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.
“As long as the sun’s shining, shit can’t be that bad.” 

This book was really good. I could have given it four or five stars but something stopped me. Maybe it was because of the characters or the cliched concept.

The first half of the book was really entertaining. I enjoyed reading the first half. And if you'd asked me to rate the first half I would have given it five stars. But I cannot do that, can I? The second half seemed trite and I felt that the characters were kind of annoying. I didn't understand much of Avery in the second half.

I have to say that Jennifer L. Armentrout creates the best memorable and lovable characters ever! I loved Cam and Avery despite them getting all confusing in the second half.

Meet Avery

Avery is starting college far away from her old life. She's starting a new life in West Virginia trying to forget about her past. Something terrible had happened to her when she was fourteen and that's the memory she's running away from. 
Then, she meets Cam - he's everything she'd thought he wasn't. 

And meet Cam

Cam was the perfect guy. I don't know how JLA creates these perfect guys! Cam is really easy - going, funny, cocky and of course sexy. He also had a past. A past he's trying to forget too. 

The characters were awesome. The author created two amazing leads but I think she could have done more to the story line. I found it very trite. Same thing happening to a different person in a different way. I mean, when you create awesome characters there should be a strong story line to support them. That's what I feel was missing in this book. Everything was really good except for the story line. 

If your new to contemporary romance novels, then I would suggest you to go with this book first. It is a very good book. The reason I didn't like it as much as I thought I would was because I've read too many new adult contemporaries and hence, I found it predictable. Other than that, I think this is a really good book.

Oh, and I'm sure you'll fall in love with cookies as soon as you start this book :)
