Series: Wait for You #5
Published by HarperCollins
“Armentrout’s series offers a little more suspense in the books so if that’s your thing, definitely check it out.”
~ Under the Covers
In the fifth book of the Wait For You series, Jennifer L. Armentrout offers much of the same to readers. This series is a dose of sexiness combined with a little bit of drama. In this case, both of the main characters are unsure of what they really want. Steph is more than eager to have hook ups but she also secretly wants for something more. Nick, on the other hand, is a charmer but he doesn’t ever feel like he gets too close.
I found that the characters fit into the typical NA mold in that a relationship happens when both parties aren’t really looking for it. Armentrout plays up the banter right from the beginning. It’s what she is good at and its sweet and sexy for the most part. At times, it does feel a little forced and rushed. While readers may know Steph from some of the previous books in the series, Nick is a little bit more of mystery until we get to know him a little bit more. Though I didn’t dislike either of the characters, they didn’t completely blow me away either. I will say though, that I wasn’t annoyed with this book as I have been with the last couple of books in the series.
If you’re a fan of Samantha Young’s On Dublin Street series, I think you’ll enjoy this series as well. Some of the characters actually remind me of one another and the writing style isn’t that different either. I will say though, that Armentrout’s series offers a little more suspense in the books so if that’s your thing, definitely check it out.

Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
