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…
I’m going to jump right in and say that I loved Be with Me. I actually think it’s the best in the series so far. It was even better than Wait for You and Trust in Me combined. Yes, I might be fangirling a little too hard. How does Jennifer L. Armentrout keep doing this?
I just loved both Teresa and Jase so much. Especially together were they perfection. Sure Jase pissed me off a little. Okay, a lot… but I didn’t seem to care because, well, he’s Jase. I was crushing badly on him while reading. But anyway, he and Teresa (or Tess as Jase calls her) had something very special. I enjoyed reading about their relationship that was finally happening. The book was also full of hilarious moments. I lost count of how many times I laughed out loud with it.
Of course it wasn’t all romance and hot scenes. Although those scenes were so so great. There was also some drama with Teresa’s roommate Deb that I think was done nicely to give it some excitement. Bonus points for JLA!
And as a little extra we had some appearances of Cam and Avery that hinted at some exciting stuff that’s been happening to them. Also I loved the mystery around Jase’s “little brother” Jack. Though I already guessed what was going on with that back in Wait for You but even so I really liked this twist.
Yet another amazing by written by J. Lynn (Jennifer L. Armentrout) that I loved. The woman is like a writing robot. She keeps going and writing fantastic books. Be with Me is definitely a favorite of mine now and I can’t wait to read the next one! Bring it on!
“You think my ass is cute?”
He pulled away, laughing. “Baby, your ass is like my own personal holy ground.”
Sinewy muscles in his arms flexed as he lifted Jack out of the driver’s seat, holding him into the air above his head. He spun arond in a circle, laughing deeply as Jack shrieked and flailed.
Ovaries go boom.
No matter how irritated I was with him or how badly I wanted to karate kick him between the legs, when he laughed, it was like the sun was shining in my eyes.
