Title: Chasing Spring
Author: R.S. Grey
Release Date: Feb 1, 2016
I thought I’d left Blackwater, Texas behind for good. I didn’t belong in the small town, but my dad wouldn’t listen. He dragged me back home in his beat-up truck and dropped a bomb along the way: Chase Matthews was moving in with us. He was the golden boy of my high school, my former best friend, and the last person I wanted sleeping across the hall. His presence was too great a reminder of the ghosts I was trying to forget.
I didn’t ask for a hero. I don’t want to be saved.
To me, Lilah Calloway meant late nights sneakin’ out, moonlit hair, and sparklers in July. She was my best friend until the day she left and I’d assumed Blackwater had seen the last of her. Then, like a tempest, she rolled back into town for the final half of senior year. The chopped hair and dark devil-may-care attitude warned most people away, but I knew if I fought hard enough, I could find the lost girl.
I didn’t want to be her hero. Some girls don’t need to be saved.
Have you ever read a book that related to a current situation in your life so well that it gave you chill bumps? Well, that wasn’t Chasing Spring for me, but instead Eliana and Hannah’s story instead, the back story. I’ve been through what they went though, to an extent. I’m the friend that always wants to be the hero. It really made me look at my life.
Aside from that, I absolutely LOVED Chase and Lilah’s story. He was the golden boy, and she was the lost girl, but they used to be best friends. They’re soulmates 100% though and I really enjoyed watching them figure it out! Such a beautiful story and I think it may be one of my favorites from R.S. Grey.
I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way, I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things… everyday.
I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I’m a comedy geek and love all things “funny”. Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.
