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.
This is the sequel to A Boy Like You by author Ginger Scott. This is not a standalone. You must read the first book before this one.
This two book series is a bit of a departure from the author’s previous books in that it has a superhero type vibe to it. This book picks right up where the first book left off and keeps you enthralled. There are twists you don’t see coming in this series, and as an avid reader I love when authors can surprise me. It’s such a well written series and the character development is such that you really care about them, even the side characters. The relationship between the male and female protagonists is sweet, at times heartbreaking and also incredibly beautiful.
This was such an original idea and it was fascinating to find out more and more clues about Wes and Joss’s history. A history they weren’t even aware of. This was also a very inspirational book, full of female empowerment, with a strong female lead. It showed that disabilities don’t have to define a person, and tragedies can be overcome with hard work and perseverance.
I also loved the complicated relationship between Joss and her father. Though they had years of adversity, it was wonderful to watch them eventually form a loving relationship closer than many fathers and daughters.
I loved this series so much. While book one leaves you on a bit of a cliffhanger, book two gives you an HEA ending. I highly recommend this series and give it a solid 5 stars.
I was very generously provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
