This book was really good! Read it in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Jase annoyed me with his hot and cold attitude initially but he grew on me. I adored Theresa and the character growth she undergoes. Loved that we got to see glimpses of Cam and Avery too :D

Be with Me is the story of Teresa (Tess) and Jase. Jase is Cam’s best friend and Tess is Cam’s little sister. You can see where this is going, right? Although Jase and Tess have had feelings for one another since that shared kiss over a year ago, Jase has stayed away. Now that Tess is on the same college campus as Jase,

It's always a pleasure to read Jennifer Armentrout's books. Her works are simply amazing and are filled with lots of interesting and swoony characters boys. She simply has that writing style that makes everything in the book delightful. I wasn't able to read more books written by her during the past few months after reading White Hot Kiss and now that I've read this novel, I felt refreshed in a way.

It's always a pleasure to read Jennifer Armentrout's books. Her works are simply amazing and are filled with lots of interesting and swoony characters boys. She simply has that writing style that makes everything in the book delightful. I wasn't able to read more books written by her during the past few months after reading White Hot Kiss and now that I've read this novel, I felt refreshed in a way.

Be with Me is quite an enjoyable, guilty-pleasure, New Adult book. It's the second book in the Wait for You series. This time around, we get to discover Jase and Tess's story. Jase is Cam's (from Wait for You) best friend while Teresa is Cam's sister. Their story started off when Tess was sixteen and they kissed accidentally which made the tension between them become more intense as the years went by. Now Teresa is an 18 year old college girl and is trying to move on from her experience with her abusive ex-boyfriend. And Jase, is Jase. A seriously intense, hottie-mc-hotters frat guy who, unfortunately carries some heavy, emotional baggage with him. They meet again because they're now attending the same college and also shares the same class in a particular subject.

I find their love story sweet and emotionally driven. At times, I even find myself pausing for a while because I just have to feel all the feels. There's certainly chemistry between Jase and Tess and I also find their push and pull relationship so cute.

However, I still feel like I love the first book even better than this. Be with Me is quite different compared to Wait for You because Be With Me seems a bit heavier and it's overloaded with too many conflicts and dramas-- which I think, is a major drawback. I love dramas and angst because those are the qualities that made me feel drawn to New Adult books but this book-- there was just too much of it! Both the main characters carry heavy issues that I guess, will never be resolved in just one book. Aside from that, there were also serious issues carried by the secondary characters (Debbie and Erik) which is NOT at all necessary. C'mon, why don't we just focus on Jase and Tess alone? They're already having so many problems and yet, there are nuisances around them which make the overall story even more difficult to take. My emotions are all over the place! It could have been better if the story just focused on the main characters alone. Also, I think the story will be much more beautiful if all the dramas and the conflicts were less overwhelming, because too much of everything isn't good.

In spite of my issues with this book, however, I can say that I still enjoyed it. The romantic scenes between Jase and Tess are sweet and hot. They're definitely one those book couples that make me smile and feel awed just because. :)

I'll Take "Drama" for $200, Alex!

Ever since reading Cam and Avery's story in book one of this series, "Wait For You," I was anxious to read about Jace and Teresa. Jace is Cam's best friend, and Teresa is his younger sister. This is a stand alone, but I encourage you to read book one, as I sure wouldn't want you to miss out on Cam and Avery's HEA.

I must admit though, I wish this was written in dual POV's to really delve deeper into Jace's thought process. I would much rather hear the H's

“Thank you.” His spine lost some of its stiffness as he draped his arm over my shoulders. Tugging me against the shelter of his body, he rested his cheek against the top of my head and sighed.
“Thank you for being here with me.”


Well that was difficult to read.

This was very different than Wait for You. While Wait for You was a passionate and a well-driven novel, Be with Me was so much more different. It shared less passionate romance, it shared way too much drama, and it didn't have any of the expectations I had aft

This books tells us the story of Teresa (Tess) and Jase. As you must remember Tess is Cam’s younger sister and Jase’s his best-friend.
Tess has an abusive ex-boyfriend and since that she was never able to trust a boy again… until Jase. They both has feelings for each other but neither of them acts on them for a long time.
First Tess thinks Jase has afraid of Cam’s reaction since he tends to be a little overprotective. Little being an understatement.

I consider "Be with me" the best of the series, although I love the first one, I connected more with this and maybe because of the characters.
Avery was very fragile and vulnerable, but I was in the mood of reading something about a determined and stubborn heroine. Teresa was it:)

The book follows Teresa and Jase, Cam's little sister and best friend.
They have a history together, sharing a kiss some time ago but keeping it friendly after that. Jase was drunk and confused, but Teresa knew what she was doing. She was secr

It probably is a case of it is just me, my mood..... but dang it, I loved Jace. I really liked Teresa. I wanted to love this story. Maybe tomorrow I'll feel different. But for now, I have to move on and get more to this growing group!!!!! Still loving the series though!!!!

Teresa has always had one dream, simply to dance. But when she injures her knee she's on to plan B, attending college, the same college that Cam, Avery and Jase attend. She's been harboring feelings for her brother's best friend ever since that night that he kissed her a year ago, the night that he took her mind off of the abusive relationship she escaped and the events that would change her brother's life.

Teresa has always had one dream, simply to dance. But when she injures her knee she's on to plan B, attending college, the same college that Cam, Avery and Jase attend. She's been harboring feelings for her brother's best friend ever since that night that he kissed her a year ago, the night that he took her mind off of the abusive relationship she escaped and the events that would change her brother's life.


Jase can't seem to stop his attraction to Tess, his life is far too complicated though for him to allow himself to fall for this girl. Saddled with his own secrets and fears of what loving someone can do; he pushes Tess away. But he can only push so much until he is dragging her back.



Both Jase and Tess have their own struggles they'll have to deal with. Her injury has taken away so much already and things just seem to get worse. As for Jase, his secret is not just a painful memory, but a daily reminder. When they're pushed to their limits they finally are forced to face their feelings. Letting go isn't as simple as he thought it would be when his heart wants her to stay.



Jennifer set the bar pretty high with Cam and those damn cookies, so Jase had a lot to live up to. He fell a little bit short for me, but I still enjoyed this story. I love the little sister/best friend romances and loved that we finally got to know Jase. His big reveal was a tad bit predictable, for those that have read each of the books in this series - I guess that most were already sorting this out pretty early on. But that did not diminish the story for me one bit.

Tess was a likable all the way around - she wasn't overly insecure and she knew what she wanted from the start. I love when the heroine is more on the stable side of things even when things in her life seem to be heading south. As for Jase, he was broken... but not enough for my taste. I wanted either the angst that comes with the man-whore or the damage that comes from past trauma... he was just a little banged up - I like them shattered.

I adore Jennifer's writing style and how she develops the story. As a reader, you just can't go wrong when it comes to selecting something from this author. Did I want a bit more to this story? Yes. I wanted Jase to blow Cam out of the water... but that was not the case this time around. And although this can be read as a stand alone, you'll get more of a complete picture if you read the prior books in the series.

We are also introduced to Calla, who is an intriguing character. I am hoping that she'll end up with Brandon who seems to be just a tad bit damaged.

Be With Me is Teresa and Jase's story. Jase is Cam's bestfriend and Teresa is Cam's sister. Sounds really simple and predictable, right? But it's really not. Sometimes, it's simple stories like these that can trip an author up. But not Jennifer Armentrout. In fact, some of her most unforgettable stories, at least for me, follows pretty much a simple patter of boy meets girl and they fal

This was an awesome, quick and heart-pounding read. The story was unpredictable. The writing was witty and fun. The romance made my eyes rolled out of its sockets a couple of times but it turned out great and made me turn green with jealousy. Oh, and it had a bit of suspense too.

Teresa is your typical college gal. She’s in love with her brother’s best friend and knows Jase will never be with her. Jase has past issues and because of that he doesn’t let anyone get close to him. Now, that Teresa is in college and they go to school together, it’s harder for Jase to keep Teresa at arm’s length.

I think because Cameron Hamilton and his damn cookies were met first...there was pretty high bar set, so although I love Jase and Tess...it wasnt as fabulous as book 1!

This however does not take away how much I truly liked this. Jase and Tess's tale has a much harsher feel to it, a more emotional tone, and definitely more intense themes. There was still a bit of humor and good banter, but again...more complex/intense characers!

I really like Jase...

I really like Jase...

How truly heartbreaking his past is. He is a big bad teddy bear, he struggles so hard to do the right thing at all times, but his heart is so big and he really, really wants his best friend's little sister! His passion and his needs/wants for Tess were super, hot and sensual...this man has to have the worst case of blue balls ever experienced! That or he has the patience of an absolute saint!

As for Tess...this beautiful little broken dancer....

I was kind of in the middle with her...I will acknowledge the fact that she was young, and that she has had a forever crush on Jase, but she was bit drama for me with about everything. I felt bad for all the shit she had dumped on her from her injury, past abusive relationship, and traumatic roomie experiences. I did appreciated her all out attitude towards Jase, but I just felt she was too young to really "know" what her future would be, esp after losing her dreams!

But both were inherently good...both were a balm to each other's souls. One young and naïve...one older and experienced, but both on a level playing field.

That being said, i am still a fan of this series! I love Jase and his pink cupcake boxes, and I hope he and Tess make it...i guess time will tell! I am really hoping Ollie gets some love...and Calla is an amazing character i think should def be explored!

Be with Me was a book I went in with low expectations because it seemed to be a book a lot of my friends didn't like. Those expectations were basically fulfilled because this book was quick, easy and nice but it definitely wasn't anything amazing.

It has some very heavy and emotional topics that come up. In fact, I have to say that considering Teresa is 18, and Jase is 22...they are dealt with major blows in their life. I was ve ...more

Be With Me is the second book in the Wait For Me series but is able to be read as a stand alone novel. Again, this is another re-read for me so I knew the twists (which are damn obvious) and I knew how absolutely annoying the characters were.

This book took me a while to finish the first time I read it because I never felt a connection between the character, despite the fact I read this particular book at a faster pace this time it didn't make the connection magically appear between the characters.
