Review: Be With Me (Wait for You #2) by J. Lynn, Jennifer L. Armentrout

Title: Be With Me
Series: Wait for You, #2
Author: J. Lynn
Category: Contemporary/ Romance
Genre: New Adult
Rating: 5 stars out of 5
Teresa Hamilton is having a rough year—she’s in love with her big brother’s best friend, but he hasn’t spoken to her since they shared a truly amazing, mind-blowing, change-your-life kiss. She got out of a terrible relationship. And now an injury is threatening to end her dance career for good. It’s time for Plan B – college. And maybe a chance to convince Jase that what they have together is real.

Jase Winstead has a huge secret that he’s not telling anyone. Especially not his best friend’s incredibly beautiful sister. Even though he and Teresa shared the hottest kiss of his life, he knows that his responsibilities must take priority. He certainly doesn’t have time for a relationship. But it doesn’t help that all he can think about kissing the one girl who could ruin everything for him.

As they’re thrown together more and more, Jase and Tess can’t keep denying their feelings for each other. But a familiar danger looms and tragedy strikes. As the campus recovers, the star-crossed couple must decide what they’re willing to risk to be together, and what they’re willing to lose if they’re not…

My Thoughts: 

Dear lord! It’s getting harder and harder to write review for Jennifer. I mean each book I read by her I just can’t help falling in love with. And Be with Me is no exception. I really do adore this series, the characters and their stories!

I really love Jennifer's writing style, doesn't matter if it's a New Adult or a YA paranormal book; she seems to really capture the age group and the personalities of her characters. And she has a humorous, fun writing style that I am instantly drawn to. She also seems to make characters I can’t help but liking.
“I want to be there for you. Let me.”
Getting to know Teresa and Jase was so much fun! I really liked Teresa’s personality. It felt that Teresa was a bit different from all the other heroines that Jennifer writes about. I’m not sure why, she just wasn't what I was expecting I guess. She was, however, a really likable character. Strong and very determined, but also very kind and sweet. I definitely enjoyed reading her story and learning about her. And getting to see the world through her eyes. I adored her strength and how she felt about Jase. 

Oh, don’t get me started on Jase! Just another fictional boy to add to my list of fictional hunks! Now, he was a character that had a lot going on. So learning about him was a thrill! I loved his story and I’m so happy that Jennifer put his story out there. Jase was just such a sweet guy, and very caring. But he also had that cocky side to him too. Though Cam is still the first in my heart, I can’t help but love Jase. His story really was such a heart clincher.

I loved the chemistry that was between Jase and Teresa. I really felt it and, boy, was it fun to read about! I think I also enjoyed the intensity between them and how they tried to fight the chemistry but to no avail. Both Jase and Teresa had to overcome some obstacles in their lives, so there was also a lot of growth in them too. And I’m really proud of the things that they overcame in the book.
“My dream had been shattered, but then re-created, fashioned into something with more meaning and becoming more precious.” 
The story, to me, played out well. Everything that happened challenged the characters in a way that showed me who they are and also allowed them to grow. The plot was nicely built and I think everything did move at a nice pace. Though I did see some of the twists, one did take me by surprise. A very good surprise!

I also loved that I got to see Cam and Avery! I adore this couple and it’s nice to see that their relationship is just as wonderful as it was when Wait for You ended.

I think this was a great second book in the series and I’m so happy to have Teresa and Jase’s story! I couldn’t help but fall in love with them! They both melted my heart. I definitely recommend this one to lovers of the series and of course JLA fans! 



  1. I was kind of disappointed with Half-Blood, so I might pick up her new adult novel next:)

    Great review. You make this series sound amazing!

  2. Teresa was not what I was expecting either, but I loved it. And like you I did see some of the twists coming, but then others took me completely by surprise. I loved Jase and Teresa's story and even though Jase made me crazy at times I still loved him. Great review!

  3. I loved Jace in this one too, and pretty much anything that Jennifer write :)

  4. I'm glad Cam and Avery get cameo rolls in this book!! It has been ages since I read Wait for You, I think I need to get back in this series. I think I'd like Teresa and Jace... Awesome review girl!

  5. Wonderful Review!!! I loved this story as well, and agree that everything that JLA write's is awesome. I loved Teresa's strength, independence, and determination too. Jase was very swoon-worthy, and there was one surprise in the story that really shocked me! The intensity and chemistry between Jase and Teresa was what really hooked me to the story! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  6. It was def nice seeing C&A again and while I enjoyed J&T's story, Jase's back & forth act had me going crazy! Still love him though. Great review!
