I’m not supposed to be here.

Death has come for me more than once, and each time it’s been a boy who’s
stood between me and my final breath.

I called him Christopher when he saved me as a child. When he came into my
life again, only months ago, I knew him as Wes. Just as he did the time
before, he disappeared the moment he made sure I was out of harm’s way; as
if I didn’t need any more saving.

This time, though, death left me with a reminder of how powerful it is. I
know it meant to strip me of my spirit again, but it failed.

Even so, I know I need Wes to survive. Our souls are woven together
somehow, our every breath in sync. I feel it, even though everyone says I
shouldn’t.

The world thinks he’s missing.
His loved ones don’t want to believe he’s dead.
Only I know just how special he is.

I’m going to find him and bring him home, where he belongs. Together,
we’ll face impossible—we’ll rewrite our ending.

And when the bad guys come calling, we will always win.
























A BOY LIKE YOU
YA Contemporary Romance
Released on: March 3, 2017
















Ginger Scott is an Amazon-bestselling and Goodreads Choice Award-nominated author of several young and new adult romances, including Waiting on the Sidelines, Going Long, Blindness, How We Deal With Gravity, This Is Falling, You and Everything After, The Girl I Was Before, Wild Reckless, Wicked Restless, In Your Dreams, The Hard Count, Hold My Breath, and A Boy Like You.

A sucker for a good romance, Ginger’s other passion is sports, and she often blends the two in her stories. (She’s also a sucker for a hot quarterback, catcher, pitcher, point guard…the list goes on.) Ginger has been writing and editing for newspapers, magazines and blogs for more than 15 years. She has told the stories of Olympians, politicians, actors, scientists, cowboys, criminals and towns. For more on her and her work, visit her website at http://www.littlemisswrite.com.

When she's not writing, the odds are high that she's somewhere near a baseball diamond, either watching her son field pop flies like Bryce Harper or cheering on her favorite baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ginger lives in Arizona and is married to her college sweetheart whom she met at ASU (fork 'em, Devils).

When we get a Ginger Scott book it's a sure bet that it will be something different, something that will put your heart through an emotional meat grinder. It will be deliciously angsty and you will want to talk about it  with your book bestie.

The story continues right where the first in this duet ended. Joss is on her way to look for Wes and to visit her grandmother Grace in Arizona to learn more about her mom. On this journey she receives answers from Grace which raise even more questions and she is not one step closer to finding Wes. Until she takes a closer look at one of the pics her grandmother gave her. The depth of the secrets and lies that become more apparent with every half-truth she learns are staggering.

This is all you get about the plot from me. Yeah. Tough luck, huh? ;) I promise you'll be better off going in without being spoiled.

Joss has matured a lot from where we started in book 1. Yes, she still lashes out, especially when she feels the sting of rejection but the heartbreak she experienced had her growing up fast. Not only is there a new maturity to her, there is also an unbreakable strength.

“I know you don’t need a hero, Joss. You are the strongest person I know. Even so, I can’t help myself. I never could. And not because someone told me I was supposed to, either.”

She deals with problems adults would sway under and does it with dignity. Well. Mostly. Joss and her dad start building a relationship and while it remains complicated there is still a lot of love. She is a lioness and ready to defend those she loves.

Wes isn’t weird. He isn’t alien. He’s a gift— rare and mine.

Wes is...Wes. He is such an unassuming, little bit bashful and sweet guy. Quiet, protective and so honest about his love for Joss. He is steadfast in his feelings for her and so wants to be the hero his girl deserves.


Wes closes the small distance between us and cups my cheeks, pulling my head toward his and resting our foreheads together. “I love you something fierce,” he whispers, and for the first time in an hour, my pulse begins to slow.

Wes has his own demons to fight and it was hard to see him hurting, this good young man with a heart the size of Texas.

And can I say that Kyle is the best friend ever? I think my book bestie and I will have to gang up on Ginger and bully her into writing his story. This guy is so good and sweet and always ready to provide comic relief when things get too serious. I adored him. Her dad has really grown on me too.

Finally I'd like to explain why I deducted a half star. In the last 20% something happens and I could not explain the necessity of this twist. These characters have gone through so much, they have always prevailed. Why send them through hell another time?

Ginger Scott's tale about a boy and a girl who aren't anything like us is poignant, definitely heart warming and complex. And every time she teaches me something. This story is about growth, being brave to be different and that facing adversity with people at your side is so much easier. And it reminds us that nothing is written in stone. People can change, situations can change and you can be the change

The writing is impeccable and draws you in from the first words. This author's stories have a way to linger with me and even after days I still miss Wes and Joss. This one has so many twists that it gives you whiplash. It is also a little bit magical and I hope that a lot of people will pick up this duet and read it.

When It's Real

by

Erin Watt







This is as real and as awful and as wonderful as it gets. I’d hold her forever if she’d let me.

Oakley Ford used to be a teenage superstar. At 19 his stardom has taken a nosedive and to jump-start his career his manager suggests dating a normal girl instead of a co-star. Oak agrees after some hesitation. When a girl has been found that fulfills the requirements a strategy of "attack" is being planned and carried out.

When Vaughn's parents died in a car crash they left her and her siblings without a proper financial security. Ever since Vaughn and her sister have been raising their twin brothers. Money is tight so when her sister tells her that Vaughn could earn a lot of money by fake-dating someone famous she doesn't need to think about it for long. While she isn't cut out for being in the spotlight her family comes first...and her boyfriend? Well, hopefully he will understand that this serves to improve the little family's financial situation significantly. Too bad Oakley Ford turns out to be a major jerk.




Heads up, Oak isn't a likable character when you start reading this book, but there is something, an underlying vulnerability and a loneliness, despite all the people he surrounds himself with. It must be hard to follow orders because other people know what's best for you. Then there is the aspect that everyone who profits from him uses Oak for their own gain without a second thought who they hurt.

Oak is something else. At his most vulnerable, he’s the strongest.

Modest he is not but the more you advance in the story the more thoughtful Oak becomes. He has endless patience with Vaughn and at some point I thought he was a little bit too relenting and acquiescent with her. Oak grew on me though and I ended up adoring him.

I don’t know when that happened, but somewhere along the line Vaughn went from the girl I was forced to have on my arm to the girl I want to have in my life.

Now Vaughn was a girl after my taste until she decided to make one bad choice and that choice caused this book to drop down a star a for me. For much of the book she holds her own and stands up to cocky Oakley Ford. She isn't impressed that he is a superstar. I appreciated that Vaughn was ready to do things she didn't want to do in order to secure her family's future. Until around the 70% she was a perfectly likable heroine.

I kissed her because she was funny and sweet. She didn’t mock me when I confessed I was blocked. She tried to comfort me with silly stories about her family even when it was obvious those same memories caused her pain. She doesn’t expect anything from me beyond what we’d agreed upon. She’s different and I wanted a taste of that.

The problem was not what she did, it was the explanation why she did it that totally threw me off and I have to admit I was thinking about dropping my rating to 3 stars but the overall enjoyment of the story had me reconsider.



As is evident by the success of The Royals this author duo definitely knows how to write an engrossing story. The books they write are unputdownable and even though this one had it's weaknesses I was totally immersed in the story. I'm pretty sure that most people will feel that way about When It's Real.


When It's Real is a standalone.
