Review Detail4.7 2
Well-crafted, funny, and intensely romantic, BE WITH ME is a story of love, loss, and discovering that some of life's biggest blessings come from our darkest moments.
Complex and completely relateable, Tess and Jase are characters doing their best to navigate through some tough issues while figuring out how they fit into each others lives. Tess has already been through so much by the time she gets to college and putting her painful past behind her isn't as easy as she thought it would be. Neither is facing a future that looks different than she imagined.
Jase on the other hand, is so used to doing what's best for everyone else that he may lose the one thing he needs most if he can't figure out how to forgive himself for his own mistakes. They find comfort in each other as well as those little pink boxes of confectionery perfection, but it may not be enough, especially when things take a turn for the dangerous and whatever time they have together could be cut short.
I liked that Tess didn't let Jase get away with much and that she didn't give up on him when he was being stupid. While I understood where Jase was coming from, there were still moments when I wanted to shake some sense into him. However, he did have a way of redeeming himself with those little pink boxes.
Fans of Cam and Avery will be happy to know that they make an appearance too.
What Left Me Wanting More: Nothing. Although, I did wish I had a cupcake on hand while reading. ;)
Final Verdict: A sweet addition to the WAIT FOR YOU series!
On a personal note: Thank you J. Lynn for featuring my cupcakes and making me a fictional character. I owe you a lifetime supply of chocolate peanut butter cupcakes! ;D
