Use cash and keep moving.

After I ran away from home, these were the two rules that dictated my life. Scoring a job as a roadie fit perfectly for what I needed. Traveling, cash, and life out of the spotlight. But when my path collides with West, the lead singer of Bus Stop, I can’t seem to stay out of his spotlight—especially since we’ll be touring together for an entire year.

West is determined to break down my walls. He won’t give up. And little by little they come crumbling. But if he knew what lurked behind them, he wouldn’t be so eager to get rid of them.

The more time we spend together, the more the lines of our friendship become blurred. He makes me dream of things I never thought possible. But while our friendship has been evolving into a romance, my secrets have been closing in. And just when I’ve decided to reveal my past to West, I’m confronted by it. The cost of my freedom could ruin the life of the guy I love…

Review

I really struggled to write this review. It’s hard to convey just how powerful Shadow of a Girl truly is. This book will stay with me for a while.

Shadow of a Girl is a YA romantic suspense so while there is a swoon worthy romance, there are also some dark moments.

Eve is such a great main character. She is strong and brave but lives in fear of her past. She has to learn that living in fear is not living. Gideon is super creepy and we have to deal with the suspense of not knowing the true extent of his relationship with Eve until later in the story.

I loved that the story centered around Eve being a roadie and touring with West. I thought their relationship was sweet.

Rating: 5 stars

    I came by for something else but loved the cover of this book. Then I started read your post and have added the book to my wish list 🙂

    I’m wondering if you’re doing the pages read and you read how many books? challenges this year? I’ll take them back if you’re not or if you’ve passed them on, please tell me where they are.

    Thanks

    • Hey Gina! The links for 2016 are under Challenges at the top. If you want to take them back for 2017 that will be fine. I’m about to get married and know I will have too much on my plate next year.
