A BOY LIKE YOU
YA Contemporary Romance
Scheduled to release: March 3, 2017
They say everyone’s a superhero to someone. I’m not sure who I’m supposed
to save, but I know who saved me.
We were kids. His name was Christopher. And up until the day he pulled me
from death’s grip, he was nothing more than a boy I felt sorry for. In a
blink of an eye, he became the only person who made me feel safe.
And then he disappeared.
Now I’m seventeen. I’m not a kid anymore. I haven’t been for years. While
death didn’t take me that day, the things that happened left me with
scars—the kind that robbed me of everything I once loved and drove me into
darkness. But more than anything else, that day—and every day since—has
taken away my desire to dream.
I wasn’t going to have hope. I wouldn’t let myself wish. Those things—they
weren’t for girls like me. That’s what I believed…until the new boy.
He’s nothing like the old boy. He’s taller and older. His hair is longer,
and his body is lean—strong and ready for anything. I don’t feel sorry for
him. And sometimes, I hate him. He challenges me. From the moment I first
saw him standing there on the baseball field, he pushed me—his eyes
constantly questioning, doubting…daring. Still, something about him—it
He says his name is Wes. But I can’t help but feel like he’s someone else.
Someone from my past. Someone who’s come back to save me.
This time, though, he’s too late. Josselyn Winters, the girl he once knew,
is gone. I am the threat; I am my worst enemy. And he can’t save me from
Review: 5 STARS!!
Another amazing book by Ginger Scott!! A Boy Like You in one of the most simple yet complex books I have read in a while and I was hooked from the very first page!!
Joss was an interesting character. She was reckless & broken and my heart ached for her. When she was a child, an event happened that, at the time, she didn't understand, but it altered her entire world. I understood Joss's character. She feels alone, even though she has friends and when I say she is reckless, I mean, she is reckless with her own life. She is also prideful and determined. She doesn't like asking for help and when it is offered, it is hard to nearly impossible for her to accept it. When Wes shows up in her life, subtle changes start happening and I loved watching Joss's character grow and become more together and more hopeful.
Wes was just swoon worthy. He never gave up on Joss and was always there to save her. He showed her what true love is and what living life should be about. He pushes through all of her walls until she is vulnerable and then starts helping her heal. Wes's character always had a sense of mystery surrounding him and it made him that much more interesting. I loved how he opened up to Joss and showed her who he really was and how he was so kind and protective of her. He seriously made my heart melt.
This book was emotionally draining, but in the best way. I laughed, cried, swooned, was on the edge of my seat and sometimes I wanted to throw my kindle (I didn't though). Ginger Scott is an amazing writer and this book was fantastically written. I loved the friendships, the love, the drama and the mystery. I cannot wait for the next book!!
