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

I keep thinking I’ve found my favorite Ginger Scott book, and then she releases a new one. It always becomes my new favorite. I mean, my old favorites are still my favorites, but there are so many of them now! Each book Ginger Scott releases is so different from the last. I’ve said it before, but it always feels like I’m meeting a new author when I read her latest release. There’s never any moment of familiarity. It’s always a brand new experience. A Boy Like You definitely fit that mold. Ginger Scott has never written a sports romance quite like this one.
I absolutely loved A Boy Like You. I want to detail out every little thing I loved, but I don’t want to ruin this story for anyone. It’s way too special. It captured my heart from the very beginning. I loved the raw grittiness of the characters and the story. I felt every single emotion Joss felt throughout the entire book. Despite her flaws, I adored her. And I loved Wes. His quiet strength was so attractive.
And that ending…I don’t think I’ve stopped muttering “OMG” since I read that last page. Really, Ms. Scott? Really? I can’t believe I have to wait for A Girl Like You until summer. That’s just torture!
I know this review is short and sweet, but A Boy Like You is a book every reader needs to read for themselves. It’s best going in knowing the least amount as possible. So get your copy now!
