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
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

As a young girl, Josselyn Winters was saved from harm by a quiet boy in her third grade class. Christopher. That moment will forever haunt her even years later when she meets Wesley Stoke in high school. He seems familiar. Like she’s met him. Knows him. But this guy is different than the young boy that saved her. He can’t be that same quiet boy that rescued her so many years ago, can he? When she brings it up, Wes denies being that person. Telling her there is no truth in that theory. Over time, there is this tethered connection between Joss and Wes. She doesn’t make the best choices. She makes brash decisions where she is careless. But through it all, Wes is there. He saves her in so many ways. As their story unravels things are revealed but there is still so much to know. This is an earthshattering read allows you to get completely wrapped up. There is no time or circumstance. There is just this book.
Wes and Joss? They are reckless. Intoxicating. Madness. Exhilarating. You become absolutely consumed by their story. Joss is a stubborn heroine full of spunk and defiance. You shouldn’t root for her because of her carelessness, but you can’t help it. You are drawn to her in ways you can’t explain. So you cheer her on despite your reservations. Because deep within her, she is the girl with a fire inside that we all want to be. Wes is special. You can’t quite put your finger on him, but you want nothing more to know about him. His story is deep. He doesn’t tell it, but you can feel the depth of his past beneath him. He’s quiet, yet his love and admiration for Joss is loud. His feelings are tangible. Unmistakable. Their love is chaos and beauty. Until there is heartbreak. In the most unimaginable way.
The writing is phenomenal! This author? She takes risks. Takes chances. She pushes and pulls you as a reader to truly feel what they characters are going through. Their joy, their pain. Their highs and their lows. The author masterfully executes a complex yet unique storyline that will have you guessing from chapter to chapter. Her talent in weaving a riveting story with compelling characters is simply unparalleled. Your heart pounds as you turn each page. There is a sort of suspense as you have no idea what to expect. This book is remarkable and brilliant in both its manifestation of the characters and execution of the storyline. A Boy Like You is a thought provoking and unforgettable read. A true masterpiece. This story is one you’ve never read before. Throw away your expectations as this is a deep rooted story that surpasses anything you’ve ever read. I am so excited beyond words for what is to come with the next installment.
