Book Review: Be With Me (Wait For You #2) by Jennifer L.Armentrout.

Synopsis: 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… 

TW: This book deals with the many impacts that drug use can have on both the user, and those who are around them. There is also violence.

Be With Me by Jennifer Armentrout is the second book in her Wait for You series, and follows Teresa Hamilton, Cam’s sister (from Wait for You and Trust in Me), who is struggling with a possible career-ending knee injury, taking her from the dance stage to college. Here, she comes face to face with her long-time crush, Jase Winstead, her brother’s best friend, and the man who gave her one amazing kiss a year before dropping out of her life. With Jase and Tess seeing more and more of each other, they can’t deny their feelings for one another for long.

“Everything—it will get better. I know that’s hard to believe now,” she’d said. “But eventually you’ll find something else to be passionate about and you’ll find someone who will love you like you deserve.”

I loved this book, just as much, if not a little more, than the first book in the series. The story didn’t lean on Wait for You and was unique in its story, and story building. Just like with the first book, Be With Me deals with some heavy material. Domestic Violence happens more often than you think, and Jennifer does a great job showing the reality of abuse, and the effects of it. A sad fact is, victims are in danger even when they are able to walk away from the situation. Be With Me shows both sides of the coin. This book isn’t all about that though. Be With Me’s central romance is intense, beautiful, and sexy as hell.

“My dream had been shattered, but then re-created, fashioned into something with more meaning and becoming more precious.”


I really loved Tess’s character. She is young but has really grown from her past. Her struggles with her injury, and the possible loss of her dream career in dance, don’t stop her from at least preparing for a plan B (college), and don’t hold her back from Jase. And what can I say about Jase? I liked him as Cam’s best friend in the first book, but I kinda fell for him in this book. Did he make me want to shake him sometimes? Sure. But much like Avery frustrated me in the first book sometimes, I understood why. Jase is intense. He is passionate, loving, protective. He is also smart, and strong. I think the only thing I didn’t like about him was his love of country music. His story is a bittersweet one. In a lot of ways, these two books are the Hamilton siblings, while dealing with their own issues, saving Avery and Jase.

“Holy shit, where did you learn that? Fuck. Don’t answer. I don’t want to know. I prefer to think you were born with that talent.”


And can I just say, how freaking adorable is Jack?

Be With Me is a great sequel to Wait for You. We get to focus on a new couple, new, very complicated, issues, while still getting to see our first couple of the series, Cam and Avery, and get little updates on them (spoiler alert, they are very happy together). We get some new side character introductions, and as I know there are more books in the series, I suspect some of them will be upcoming features. I totally recommend Be With Me … the whole series.
