Wait by Ryan Ringbloom - Book Tour, Book Review, Giveaway





There’s nothing wrong with wanting to wait. High school is over and Tessa is done with the drama. She wants to wait. So what? Does that mean she’s destined to never be with anyone? Probably.

Sometimes it’s possible to wait too long. Cassie’s best friend just tried to kiss her. He should have tried a year ago. Not now. Does that mean that they can’t still be friends? Maybe.

Tessa Jameson is determined not to fall victim to the same mistakes of her past. And after meeting Tucker, she’s going to need all the help she can get.

Cassie DeMarco refuses to give her heart up to someone who is about to leave and start the next chapter in his life. So this summer it’s time to forget Mark, and focus on finding a fling instead.

MY REVIEW -
Once again, Ryan Ringbloom reminded me how it is to be young and in love – blissful most of the times, and complicated at the next.


SHE WILL WAIT.


We have all known Tessa from the first book FAST, I have hated her at first and then learned to love her at the end when I discovered her secret. She had let Kent go before she went off to camp that summer. She was so over high school, and all the drama it accompanies. While everyone is ready to act on their raging hormones, Tessa is willing to WAIT. If the guy isn’t willing to do so, then he isn’t meant for her. But meeting Tucker and realizing he’s like those guys she wanted to avoid – Tessa needed all the help she can get. Good thing she had a enemy-turned-friend roommate Cassie, and of course, her best friend – Ashley. (I LOVE HER IN THIS BOOK!!!)


SHE HAS WAITED LONG ENOUGH.


Cassie was surprised when Cassie’s best friend Mark tried to kiss her. Just when she lost hope in him finally getting the courage to do so, after those supposedly-romantic dates that turned out to be just hang-outs. But now, it was summer. She’s determined to have a summer fling, and it’s not Mark. He would be going away to college and she would still be at home, helping her father managed the bakery. She isn’t willing to risk her heart for it. But pretending to be his sister while he make out in front of her wasn’t good for her heart either.


Nevertheless, I admire Tessa’s conviction to WAIT – wow. For a teenage girl, surrounded by temptation, hot guys and peer pressure, it will take a lot of effort to hold into her V-card. She knew her worth, and she won’t settle for anything less. As for Cassie – anyone with a right sense of mind knows that Mark loves her a lot and would do everything for her. What better way to start a strong relationship than friendship? I wish she’d make up her mind and finally make a decision before Mark goes to somebody else. Tucker, on the other hand, is the male-version of Ashley (oh yes, he was a lot of fun too). I love him, and the fact that he was willing to wait. I mean, for a guy, who had been inside the HUT a couple of times and whose being hit on by dozen of girls – it was really HARD. But he managed. J


I must admit, I fell in love with FAST a whole lot than this book – but it didn’t mean I like this any less. I still had fun reading – it was a short, sweet, funny read. There were times I wanted to smack senses into some of the characters, but you will still adore them. WAIT was totally worth the WAIT.  



RATING:
★ARC Copy was given in exchange for an honest review.★

EXCERPT -
“But last night, you thought I meant sex and you can’t even probably begin to know what I was actually thinking.” 
“I made a mistake, but I thought about it and now I think I know what you really meant by going further.” 
Tessa closes her eyes. “No you don’t.” 
“I do. I should have grabbed your boob.” 
“What?” she gasps, her eyes go wide. “Grabbed my boob? And then what?” 
Hands on her hips, she stands waiting for me to answer. 
“Grabbed the other one?” I say unsure, raising my hands up with a scared smile.
The shock on her face makes me cringe. Her mouth hangs open, awkwardness lingering and then the corners of her mouth lift. “I don’t even know how to respond to that,” she laughs.
