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…
Spoiler free review
Shadow of a Girl is an emotional read with secrets, danger and young love.
Eve has run away from home, changed her hair color and her identity in an effort to get away from a bad guy in her life. With the help of her childhood friend, she gets a job as a roadie. While on the job, she meets West, the lead singer of a popular band. There is an immediate connection, but Eve has so much to lose if she let’s herself get lost.
Poor Eve. She grew up with so much bad and it has made her this skittish being with no self-esteem and it makes her constantly look over her shoulder. I loved seeing her blossom and grow. West has secrets of his own, but his treatment of Eve is understanding and patient. Reading their story as they slowly fall in love was a real joy. Of course, as with any good book, there is outside interference getting in their way and Eve’s past is a real doozy.
This book is for anyone who loves a story of growth and love. Well-written with engaging characters, Shadow of a Girl will steal your heart.
