i’m still trash for cameron

So, this book really aged nicely. It's one of the few NA contemporary novels I read over and over whenever I feel the need and boy, it was as good as the first time. It still gives me the feels and has me giggling like a toddler. I wish all the romance books I read were like this one and the Off Campus series.

Avery and Cam literally run in to each other on their first day of astronomy class. Cam is taken by this girl that reminds him of Strawberry Shortcake. He wants to know her. Avery is very standoffish. Something happened to her, something she is

Okay, I’m not going to tell you about the story of this book because if you’re interest in it you’re already read the first one and know what’s about, and if you haven’t… well, I don’t want to spoil you.
This is basically the same story (we have 2 or 3 new scenes, but nothing special) over Cam’s POV. We’ve read Avery’s side and why it was so hard for her to trust and let people into her life. Now he have Cam’s side and we get to watch firsthand all he did to finally win Av

Loved This Companion POV

I just finished the first book of this duet "Wait For You" where we read Avery's POV. I immediately wanted to read Cam's POV, and so glad I did. His perspective of everything that was happening in their relationship was as fascinating and entertaining as I expected. I enjoyed it even more than the first book, as Cam is as delectable and enchanting as they come.

Cam could have his pick of any girl on campus, he is just that good looking and popular, but is intrigu

How the describe the best, the feeling of utter love for a book as sweet and beautiful as Trust in Me? It’s hard to write something meaningful, when already everything I could say about Jennifer L Armentrout has been said. It’s possibly the hundreth time, I wrote that everything she writes touches me somehow. Sometimes, I get kick ass, fast paced and full of suspense novels that rock my world, and from time to time, I get beautiful, tear jerking, heart melting stories like Trust in Me

Recommends it for: Everyone

Note: I feel like what I’m about to say is common knowledge, but I need to say it before I see another review rating it 2-3 stars because of this reason. This book is a Wait for You novella in Cam’s POV so there is bound to be overlap. If you thought otherwise, PLEASE read the first sentence of the blurb. Don’t make yourself look like an idiot by stating in your review you thought this was book 2 about Cam and Avery.**End rant**

This story is Wait For You from Cam's POV. Not really much new, but still really enjoyed. I loved getting in his head, & hearing what he was thinking & seeing how gone he was over Avery from the beginning. My favorite thing about getting his POV was how he called her Shortcake. Just so stinkin cute!

My other favorite thing about Cam's POV was we got more of his humor. Cam is hilarious! Here are some of my fav's that he says. ;))

Basically, Trust in Me has the same story and plot with Wait for You. It isn't exactly a sequel. The only thing that makes it different is the POV which is Cam's.

I love hearing Cam's thoughts here. I also love the way he's calling Avery shortcake , it sounds so cute!

But to be honest, there's nothing really much that happened here. Everything was totally the same with the first book. Perhaps I'm just glad that I was reminded of how I adored Cam and Avery in the first book. So yeah... I've got

If you're like me, I am so late in reading this one. I read Avery's story almost 4 years ago. Yes 4 years ago..... And if you know me at all, I love to read a series from start to finish, I don't wanna wait for the next book to come out. So, here I am. I'm ready to read the rest of this series and I am so glad to have finally read this one. Cams story, quite similar to Avery's and ohhhhh so good. I love Cam when I read him from Averys POV, but getting the story from his POV, hmmmhmmmhmmmmm❤❤
This is book #1.5 in the "Wait for You" series. The first book in this series was called "Wait for You" and it was about Avery and Cam's fall into love with each other. I read the first book a few years back, and then got side tracked onto other reads. I came across book 1.5 on my Kindle and decided it was time to revisit this series! I am so glad that I did!

I actually thought "Trust in Me" was a novella, and probably a short story. It is pretty much the same story as book one; but it is in Cam
I loved Cam so much when I first read Wait For You over a year ago and even more so now! The man's Pov is ALWAYS better in my opinion and being inside Cam's head was such a joy. He is the perfect book boyfriend!

My Thoughts:

❥ Loved getting Cam's POV even if he was a tad on the cocky side and there wasn't really anything new.

❥ I did miss Avery definitely need to read the first book to enjoy this one.

❥ Loved "Shortcake" and how it finally came out.


❥ Could not put it down...and it can easily be read in one day.

❥ Is it weird that I liked reading about Cam suffering? From when he was wanting to be with her to when they were was great hearing what he felt.

❥ Nice to get a preview

OMG this is Cam’s POV from Wait for You, but it contains a lot of scenes not in Wait for You. It’s called a novella, but it’s pretty long and it also gets you more familiar with Ollie and Jase.

I more then loved every page of Trust in Me. I had a really hard time putting it down. And once again, I fell in love with Cam. Crazy in love. I truly enjoyed being in his head and getting to know him better. He was just as delicious as I imagined he would be. But I have to admit, I kinda missed Avery. What a shocker! While i found her a bit annoying and boring in Wait for You, this doesn´t make much sense without knowing her story. There is no doubt that this author is talanted and I can´t wait ...more

4 Persistent Love Stars

What's it about? The same story as "Wait For You" but from the guy's point of view.

The best bits: It's so great to re-visit a story I loved so much. To be honest , it's been a couple of years since I read the original, but many scenes were familiar and I really enjoyed the characters again. Particularly Cam.

The worst bits: As enjoyable as it is, it's just a rehash of the same story.

Recommended for: Those that have read the preceding "Wait for Me" only.

I loved Wait for You, it was just a sweet and semi tragic love-story, so when I heard there would be Cam’s POV, well I was ALL OVER THAT.

The thing I love about Jennifer’s books is that she writes heavily on dialogue, which I am a MAJOR fan of, so when it translates into an alternative POV book, you don’t get that much difference, except for the parts where Avery and Cam do not interact.

What worked for me is the Hero, I loved Cam in book 1 and I was eager to see how he felt and what he was th
Actual rating: 3.5/5 Sweetie-Cam Stars

Basically, it's the retelling of the story in Wait for You from Cameron Hamilton's POV so there's nothing special or new in this one. That's why I got bored in the beginning and shamelessly skimmed through the rest of the book.

The only scene I appreciated is the same as that in Wait for You, which is the part when Cam surprises Avery on the holiday and this time, Cam's POV is quite interesting.

Yes...this novella doesn’t bring anything new but I don’t care... I love the story toooo much!! Well I secretly prayed for some new scenes between Cam and Avery but it's okay ;)

Being in Cam’s head was great! As we know from the first book he is sweet, sexy and hilarious.

This trend needs to die. Or the books should be free.
Cameron was just perfect. I was sold on the scene when he makes breakfast for Avery.

You might think what's a big deal on it? I am from a very male chauvinist family, so when I see a man making an effort for his woman in a book, I immediately love it.

I felt really bad for Avery. She is such a sweet and innocent girl. The rapist should rot in jail. Her parents were horrible. I am glad she left them and moved far away from them. Cameron was so patient with her. I wished the big revelation happened

Cameron Hamilton *dreamy sigh*.

Definitely one of my fave book boyfriends EVER! And while my experience with the retelling of much loved books from the male POV has been a bit hit and miss, I absolutely loved this one! I just finished a reread of Wait for You, so Cam and Avery’s story was all very fresh in my head when I started this book (what can I say? I was in the Cam-zone, with no intention of getting out of it :P). And even though it’s essentially the same story, I was still madly flippin

In Trust in Me (Wait For You #1.5) by J. Lynn, College student Cameron “Cam” Hamilton almost gets knocked off his feet when he meets Avery Morgansten for the first time. The pint-sized young woman with fiery red hair and gorgeous chocolate eyes captures his attention right away. Avery’s the only girl to turn him down for a date on campus. And she turns him down repeatedly to the point that it becomes an ongoing joke between them as they become close friends.

I liked this story much more in Cameron's POV which seems funny, but this was one of the most entertaining male POV books I've ever read. I kind of forgot a lot of details from Wait for You, so I didn't really mind that this was for the most part just retelling that story. I've seen this described as a novella, but that is

“What is it about her?” he asked, sounding like he truly wanted to understand the attraction I could barely figure out. “She’s not like any other girl you’ve gone out with. She’s fucking awkward as hell and quiet. She’s pretty, but—”
“She’s fucking beautiful,” I cut in, daring him to disagree.
He didn’t. “Is she worth this?”
