Review: Be With Me by J. Lynn




From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Wait for You
Do Teresa and Jase have a real shot at getting together or will life get in the way?
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, life-changing kiss. Then she got out of a terrible relationship. Now an injury is threatening to end her dance career for good. It's time for plan B: college. And maybe she'll have 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 is kissing the one girl who could ruin everything for him.
As they're thrown together more and more, Jase and Teresa 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. . . .


J. Lynn definitely knows young love! Teresa Hamilton is a young woman on the brink of big change. Her life is not exactly taking the path she'd always envisioned but I enjoyed the fact that she was embracing the change and not wallowing in pity. Jase Winstead is every young girl's dream  -- in fact I remember begging my parents to adopt an older brother for me because I thought it was the perfect scenario. He's Teresa's brother's best friend. His secret wasn't unexpected but it was handled appropriately for the plot. There were some amazingly serious subject matters dealt with in this story and yet the book remained highly entertaining. If you are looking for all the passion and zeal of young love then this is definitely one to read because this is just like experiencing all the ups and downs of this delightful journey.
