A Boy Like you by Ginger Scott #Review
Posted by brriske
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 feels…familiar.
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 myself.
Excellent. Loved the characters. This story pulled me in quickly and I fought to make myself put it down for family and work both!! Tears were shed, both happy and sad ones. Frustration emerged at the end as I hadn’t realized this was episode one of a new series and it ended rather abruptly. I’m good with continuing serial books, I just hadn’t expected this one to be one!
As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock, this author gets a full five beating hearts for teen angst and true love! Enjoy! Hopefully the second book won’t be too far behind this one!!
Can’t post on Amazon till it releases.
