Review: A Boy Like You by Ginger Scott

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

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

Joss’s life was changed in a the blink of an eye. The life she had and knew would be no more after a series of events. This book by Ginger Scott was very heavy and emotional. I just wanted to reach into my iPad and give her a hug several times and tell her everything would be ok. 

Wes was Joss’s knight and shining armour who was always there when she needed him. He always seemed to be at the right place and time when it came to Joss. Wes is also keeping something from Joss and once you read it will all make sense or will it? 

Throughout this story I had some questions and theories  when it comes to Wes. He seems too good to be true and now it has me questioning some things. I really enjoyed this story by Ginger Scott. It touched on some heavy subject matter. This book wasn't all sunshine and roses. Joss and her father both struggled after the mom walks out. They were both hurting and going down a dark path. Will they be strong enough to find the right path and heal again? 

This book wasn't easy to read at times but I had to keep going. Scott sucked me in with her writing. This is the kind of story that just stays with you.And let's talk about that ending! I'm still trying to wrap my head around it and I know have EVEN more questions and theories when it comes to Wes. If you are looking for an emotional,tug at your heart strings book look no further.
