Jordan Hays knows just how precious life is; that’s why he has his own mapped out. He’ll work to pay his way through university while he studies hard, regardless of the constant distractions. Because when it comes to becoming a nurse, he’s deadly serious. He won’t fail to save someone again.
But Hex Penton is way too similar to the sister he lost, and even though the only thing more fun than stupid dares is the crazy girl who sets them, Jordan needs to make a choice. Hex believes every moment is important; every opportunity must be taken, because you never know when the world will be yanked out from underneath you. With the foundations he’s based his life on shaken, Jordan must discover what’s more important: making sure Hex’s life isn’t wasted, or remembering how to live his.
It’s time to play truth or dare.
Wait! is a story about acceptance, learning to trust and in turn love while facing life's unexpected difficulties.
NB: This book is of a mild heat level, and contains no explicit sex scenes.

I Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Wait is the second book in the Oxley Series, but can be read as a standalone.
Wait is Jordan Hayes (Logan's brother, for the first book Shh) and Hex Penton's story. I had mixed feelings about Wait because of the excessive drinking I suppose, but I kept coming back for more, I couldn't seem to get enough. The storyline flowed well and I wanted more. The story is told in both Jordan's and Hex's POV.
Hex is a party animal, she binge drinks which could lead her into dangerous situations but is that who she really is is or is it all a front.
Jordan, sweet, lovable Jordan. He looks at Hex and see's his sister, he knows there's something going on and is determined to help her. I felt sorry for Jordan, everyone seemed to treat him like crap.
