Blurb:
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…


Reese's Review:
Surprise surprise I ended up loving another JLA story. I’m a huge fan of JLA so its no surprise that I would enjoy reading Be with Me. I am super behind on this series, mostly because I didn’t think I would like any other story besides Cams and Avery’s. I should have known JLA wouldn’t let me down. I really enjoyed this story a lot.

Teresa/Tess has always wanted to be a professional dancer. Then she had an injury and is now attending college with her brother and his best friend/her long time crush: Jase. After sharing a passionate kiss a couple years ago Tess hasn’t forgotten Jase and Jase hasn’t forgotten Tess either, no matter how hard he’s tried. Jase has a secret that he’s afraid to let anyone know about, especially Tess. Tess doesn’t want to stay in college, she just wants to get better even though the more time she spends with Jase the less sure she is that she wants to leave. In the background of their romance Tess’ roommate is dealing with an abusive boyfriend, which brings a lot of things back for Tess making her want to do everything she can to help.

Tess is a strong character who has dealt with a lot of pain in her life. In Wait for Me we learned about her abusive boyfriend and how that situation ended for Cam. Now in Be with Me we get to see the story from Tess’ perspective and she has a lot of guilt over what happened. I think Tess grows a lot in this story. I didn’t really like her completely in the beginning but she showed her strength and her story is so real and relatable that I couldn’t help but like her.

Jase’s story was completely unexpected to me. I honestly did not see the secret he had there at all. It’s completely sad and made me love him so much. I really had the feels and the hots for Jase. He’s yummy.

Be with Me was great and beautifully tragic. It’s hard to read at times because some of the emotions just flow off the page and feel so real. Another great job by J. Lynn.
