Review: I`ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios

I`ll Meet You There

Author: Heather Demetrios
Published On: February 3rd, 2015
Page Count: 388

Synopsis: (Found on Goodreads)
If seventeen-year-old Skylar Evans were a typical Creek View girl, her future would involve a double-wide trailer, a baby on her hip, and the graveyard shift at Taco Bell. But after graduation, the only thing standing between straightedge Skylar and art school are three minimum-wage months of summer.
Nineteen-year-old Josh Mitchell had a different ticket out of Creek View: the Marines. But after his leg is blown off in Afghanistan, he returns home, a shell of the cocksure boy he used to be. What brings Skylar and Josh together is working at the Paradise—a quirky motel off California’s dusty Highway 99.
Cover: 5/5
                This just screams “PICK ME UP AND READ”. I`ve seen a few books coming out this year that have similar motel type covers but this by far is my favorite. It fits Paradise completely.

Overall Rating: 5/5
I jumped into reading I'll Meet You There a book that involves an amputee from war. Reading the struggles and how he adapted in his own ways was really great. Would highly suggest reading it.
The handwritten letter from author Heather Demetrios added to the epicness of Josh and Skylar's story.

Characters: 5/5
Skylar: She is so artsy and sweet. I felt for her wanting to get out of such a small town. She felt trapped and did whatever it took to get a job done. Skylar at times got on my nerves but in the end She really meant well and her and Josh are great together.

Josh: I wanted to punch him for being such an ass but then I realized why he was being an ass. I feel like his character I was a lot more bias with because of having a military background. I understood his desire to get back out there and the blaming himself for everything. Overall I did like Josh and the bonus letter made him that much sweeter.

Plot:
Mostly set in or around The Paradise Motel Skylar and Josh grew up side by side. Josh a player and Skylar ready to escape to better things.  I hated the synopsis of this boo because it gave away Josh`s injury. Skylar tries to help Josh with his prostetic but he is constantly shoving her away. This is understandable. Josh`s old friends don`t realize why Josh has changed and its only Skylar who really seems to step up and help him through the nightmares.

TTFN,

Ashley
