We follow the story between Hex and Jordan, told in alternating chapters / perspectives.
Jordan is a decent guy, a bit shy when it comes to Hex, but a hard worker with great ideals and a past.
Hex is the exciting girl, the risky choice he needs to learn to trust.
This is a college romance with bite and wonderful character development, a coming of age. Getting insight in both characters and their perspective helps to understand better what the author tries to say about them and made this a very engaging read.
While appealing to young adults, this may be judged too racy for the younger ones amongst them by some parents. Disgression advised.
A beautiful romance.
This is the second book in the Oxley College series although it can (and was by me) read as a standalone. This in no way disrupted my reading or enjoyment of the story.
This book concentrates on Jordan - serious ex-rugby player who just wants to study hard and doesn't want any sort of relationship - and Hex - a fun-loving party girl who's hiding her hurt behind a smiling mask. They both had secrets and issues that they are dealing with and it's the way that they deal with them and each other that makes this book such a joy to read.
There is insta-lust between the two of them but they actually take the time to build up their relationship which makes a refreshing change.
This story is very well written and deals with some very hard subjects - binge drinking, death of a sibling, the effects of words spoken by parents who don't know the child is listening - that sort of thing. None of it is preachy or judgmental but tells Jordan and Hex's story perfectly.
Definitely recommended to all fans of Contemporary Romance.

Jordan is fabulous book boyfriend material, and Hex starts out lost, but shows fabulous growth as she journeys toward found. For me, this is easily a five-star read.
Wait! by Stacey Nash is the second book in her Oxley College Saga series, though it can be read as a standalone novel. I adored the first book in this series, Shh!, but I absolutely love Wait! Stacey’s voice has grown more confident in the telling of Jordan and Hex’s tale. Jordan is a handsome college freshman with six-pack Superman abs and a snarky grin (I kept picturing Colton Haynes) who also has a kind heart and a sadness in his past that he is trying to ignore. Hex is an outgoing, fun-loving freshman with awesome hair who has no idea what she is doing at college, except running from her own troubled past.
This is a dual POV novel, and both perspectives are well-written. I particularly enjoyed Jordan because he wasn’t the typical alpha male. He had a bit of edge to him but he was really a sweetheart who had no problems showing his softer side. I liked Hex, too, who has her own blend of wit and sarcasm. Stacey Nash does a wonderful job of creating a solid sense of community within her novels and this was no exception. I loved seeing characters from Shh! appear in different roles, and as usual her supporting cast of characters is stellar. I had to laugh, though, as I was reading this story; Oxley College is set in Australia, where the legal drinking age is 18 and where drinking is all but mandatory during freshmen orientation (what they call O-week). During my freshman year, all we got the first week was lecture after lecture about how the legal drinking age is 21 and what the consequences would be if we were caught drinking. Ahh, America.
The writing is warm, sweet, vivid, and genuine. This is becoming one of my favorite series and I’m already looking forward to the next installment, even though I’ll miss Jordan and Hex. I can’t wait to see how they show up in the third book!
4.5 out of 5 stars!
“That smile was so deep I could crawl inside it and live happily ever after.”
“A few seconds passed then he laughed, and not with his usual small chuckle. This was a smooth noise, deep, like the rumble of a cascade. I had a new favorite sound.”
