COAST (Kick Push 2) – by Jay McLean
Series: The Road #3, Kick Push #2
Release Date: June 7, 2016
One life-changing summer.
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.
*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
“I’m Becca Owens—a broken girl. And he’s Josh Warden-the boy who broke it.”
I was looking forward setting down to read Coast #2 in the Kick Push series by Jay McLean. I loved #1 Kick Push and had a feeling that I would love this one too. After finishing the book about 25 hours ago and I’m still thinking about Skater boy and his girl with the emerald eyes.
“Becca showed up and completed the gaps in my life that I didn’t know were missing.”
I’m not going to go into the story as I don’t want to give any spoilers away, but book two continues Josh and Becca’s story and by the end of chapter one I was completely hooked and my heart felt heavy. I didn’t know what Jay had planned for this couple who were meant to be together. They still had some struggles, fears, and issues to overcome, however, deep down their love for each other never wavered, it was intense, poignant, and passionate.
“For that split second when her eyes were on mine, and her smile was directed at me, she gave value to my existence.”
“A smile spreads across my face, completely unexpected. But also not. Because that’s the thing about Josh, he makes me feel.”
I was sure of one thing with the way the last book ended Coast was going to be an emotional, heartwarming, heartbreaking, sexy read at times and it was. Jay’s writing was beautiful, poetic, inspirational and faultless and as a result, I was highlighting like crazy.
“I got you.”
“I’ll always have you.”
“You’ll always belong to me.”
The secondary characters again played a significant part of the story. I had so much love for Gramps, who is very much like my own. I adored Tommy and one scene with him, and Becca reduced me to tears it was just so heartfelt. I have a complete love for this book and its characters. It was truly a beautiful and all-consuming read from start to finish. It was an incredible conclusion to Josh and Becca’s story. This series is a must read and one you won’t forget in a hurry.
“My safe place is the knowledge that when I fall, they will help me fly. Help me sour. Help me Coast.”
