By Your Side … stuck in a library with books, how sad!

By Your Side

When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesn’t think things could get any worse. But that’s before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesn’t know much about Dax except that he’s trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, he’s not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost-boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.

Only he doesn’t come. No one does.

Instead it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending-machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn at first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumn’s old life, and old love interest, threaten to pull her from Dax’s side?


A book about being stuck in a library with a hot guy… yes, please!

You know you’re a true nerd when you are disappointed there isn’t more reading going on in the library. Seriously! It is full of books and you are stuck in it.

I guess there would be less interaction with said hot guy is all you did was read but still…

I was on page 222 when I thought (finally) “oh crap, I am going to lose sleep trying to finish this book.”

That is over half way in and not a good sign if you are asking me (which you are since you are reading my review).

Kasie West does some things really well.

Dax absolutely came across as an emotionally unavailable foster kid. But then… he has emotions??? The story is heavily one sided and Autumn is a likable enough character but I wanted a little more from Dax.

But… he likes libraries so there are worse things.

I read this book in a couple of days so another fairly short read.

I really liked the ending but you have to get through 222 pages before it really hooks you or at least I did. It is sweet and there are no warnings per se.

I plan on trying another one of her books just to see how it goes.
