A Boy Like You by Ginger Scott Review Tour #giveaway #bookreview #teasers


We're celebrating the release of A BOY LIKE YOU by Ginger Scott!


A BOY LIKE YOU
YA Contemporary Romance
Scheduled to release: March 3, 2017


BLURB:
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
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.

My A Boy Like You Review . . . 

Yet again, another amazing story by the great Ginger Scott. But this time she left us with a dreaded cliffhanger.  

Joss had the picture perfect life until one day it all got torn apart.  On that fateful day, she would have been gone from this world if it wasn't for quiet, misunderstood classmate.  Whom saved her that day then was never seen again.

Now Joss is a junior in high school and on a path of self destruction.  That fateful day changed her life in so many ways.  However, a new fateful day happens and three new boys come to her school and Joss swears that the boy who saved her is one of the new guys, Wes.  But how could that be since they have different names?

"I can't save you from you, Joss.  Please. . . give up."

While Joss may be on a path of destruction, Wes is determined to keep her safe at any cost.  Joss didn't see all that she was until Wes walked into her life.  And now she's starting to see things in a different light.

"I just realized that I'm never going to get you to look at me like you look at him.  What's worse is I'm totally okay with it.  Wes . .  he's the kind of guy you deserve.  And maybe I just love you enough to want you to have it all.  Fuckin' hurts though; not gonna lie about that."

With the presence of Wes in her life, Joss finally starts to turn things around even though she's a bit skeptical that it will all work out.  Then things actually do start to turn around and then BAM! another fateful event that changes her course of her life once again.  And left with that aftermath, we have so many more questions that were left unanswered with a cliffhanger.   A Girl Like Me can't come soon enough. 

At first I thought the book was a bit slow but then the more I read it the more that it was necessary.  We needed all those details to truly understand the depth of Joss.  Ginger Scott has such a gift at writing heartfelt, beautiful stories.  And with A Boy Like You, she has yet again burrowed herself into my heart with this gem of a story and now I'm gutted having to wait to find out all the questions left unanswered for us.

4 . 5 Hopeful Thumbs up!
