#Review: Shadow of a Girl by Shannon Greenland | #Giveaway @SEGreenAuthor @XpressoTours @EntangledTEEN

Shadow of a Girl 

Shannon Greenland
Published by: Entangled: Teen
Publication date: September 19th 2016
Genres: Romance, Young Adult

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…

DISCLAIMER: I received an e-ARC of this book for this tour.

What would you do if someone, who is supposed to give you a sense of true love and security, is the cause of your suffering? Honestly, I could never live that way for as long as "Eve"s character did. So, of course she is going to be hesitant to let people in, aside of her being in hiding, when they show her kindness. Once West comes into the picture, you can't help rooting for him.

Reading this book makes you crave it. It has its moment where you just want to scream at the character because you, as the reader, are seeing where I can be going, but only if the character lets go and moves forward. But then you also feel the emotion the character is feeling. Your heart aches right along with them.

I found this book to be my perfect cup of coffee. Mocha to be precise.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars.
I am a big fan of Nicholas Sparks' Safe Haven (though I only saw the movie) and the first few chapters of this book had me reeling. For the author to write such a terrible, horrific topic, I cannot imagine how she must have felt during the writing process. My dad is my hero at home, and to read something like this makes me so much more grateful that I have a dad like him.
