I received this book for free from the author or publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
There’s a lot of things I have come to expect when reading a Ginger Scott book. I know that the first kiss will be epic, because she writes these scenes like no one else can. I know that I will cry, the only question now is how far I make it in the book before the tears come. I also know that I will love the story, Scott has a way of making every story feel like it’s your story. I got a few things I did not expect with A Boy Like You.
I was not expecting the prologue to absolutely gut me. I literally had to close my Kindle and come back to the story the next day. If the beginning of the story moved me that much, I had to prepare myself for what was to come next. ( I still wasn’t ready, FYI) Joss and Wes are both just ordinary teenagers dealing with things that unfortunately all too common for kids growing up today. When they meet, their connection is strong and immediate, but Joss is resistant. She is so used to being numb and destructive, she refuses to let anyone in. This girl has suffered through so many devastating things in her life that she simply cannot chance letting anyone in to possibly destroy her. Wes is quiet and careful in every move he makes. He too has had his fair share of tragedies, but he is not self destructive like Joss. He is only trying to better his situation.
Watching the way the two of them dance around their feelings, and watching their relationship develop slowly into friendship and then into more is the magic of this authors writing. Things always develop naturally in her stories. These characters could easily be anyone that you grew up with.
The other thing I was not expecting was the holy hell of a cliffhanger we were left with. I was completely blown away and screaming wait there has to be more!! Thank goodness we don’t have to wait long for the conclusion in this duet. I honestly have no idea where this story is going to go, but I do know that I will love it!
5 amazing stars! Enjoy!
