Publisher's Summary

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.

great story, abrupt ending...

I enjoyed the story, but the last 2 chapters seemed like the author just wanted to hurry up and get done.

This book bummed me out.

First Impressions: I quickly noticed that the chapters in Chasing Spring were really short, making it hard to really get into the story before switching POVs (there were three, two first-person present and one third-person).

I want to state here, for the record: that I have loved every R.S. Grey book I've read so far, so my expectations were high for Chasing Spring.

Then I really got into the book...and things did not get better. After awhile I really didn't like the narrators. Their Texas twang just felt forced.

But what got me the most, was how infuriating the main character, Lilah was. You know those books where the character just makes dumb decisions and assumptions after another? That was this book.

Final thoughts: This book...this book bummed me out. I wanted so much more from it. But it just fell flat for me.

Nicely done

I am surprised how much I enjoy R S Grey’s writing. This story kept me a little in the fence as to whether or. It I would “end up liking it” thus 4 stars. I did...end up liking it.
