COAST (Kick Push 2) – by Jay McLean

Series: The Road #3, Kick Push #2

Release Date: June 7, 2016



One life-changing summer.

One boy.

The boy.

The boy who offered me safe touches and heart-stopping smiles – smiles he shared with his son.

We filled our days with porch-step kisses,

filled our ears with laughter,

filled our hearts with love.

Deep, soul-aching, desperate love.

But love is misleading.

It’s an invisible, fleeting moment.

Somewhere between false adoration and pure hatred comes an emotion, a vulnerable need, a single desire.

It lives within the ones who miss it, who crave it,

who know better than to expect it.

Love is relentless.

Even when that love turns to hate, turns to loathing,

turns to pain.

Love should heal you.

But it can also break you.

Believe me, I know…

Because I’m Becca Owens – a broken girl…

…And he’s Josh Warden – the boy who broke me.

Almost a year ago, I read Kick Push. I had some mixed feelings about it at the time. I loved Josh, but I couldn’t decide how I felt about Becca. I knew I would read Coast, though; because the cliffhanger at the end of Kick Push really got me.

I absolutely loved Coast. It was Jay McLean’s writing at it’s best. It was funny, insightful and emotional. Coast is told in dual points of view just like Kick Push. This time, the majority of the story was told through Becca’s emerald eyes. Not to worry — we still get Josh’s perspective, but the story is really about Becca’s journey of healing.

Coast had me falling in love with Josh all over again. He’s the ultimate book boyfriend. He’s smart, sweet and puts his relationships with those he loves first. He isn’t perfect, but he has no problem admitting his faults. Plus, he’s Tommy’s dad and Tommy is THE CUTEST KID EVER!

And Becca. I may not have been completely sold on her character in Kick Push, but I loved her in Coast. Getting to know her a lot better through her journal entries endeared her to me. Becca was so much stronger this time around. She fought hard to reach her goals and I had such admiration for her.

Becca and Josh’s love story wasn’t simple. There were many struggles and a lot of growing up. I loved Josh and Becca’s journey back to each other and how it didn’t just happen overnight. Coast really was a beautiful conclusion to their story. I know fans of Josh and Becca are going to love this book just as much as I did. 🙂
