BY YOUR SIDE by Kasie West


In this irresistible story, Kasie West explores the timeless question of what to do when you fall for the person you least expect. Witty and romantic, this paperback original from a fan favorite is perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins and Morgan Matson.

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 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?

My thoughts

Kasie West has been one of my fave authors ever, and I am loving her more for writing this book. Reason number one: who wouldnt love it if they were trapped in a library? Reason number two, being trapped in a library with a mysterious yet hot guy? And reason number three for raising awareness for people with anxiety disorder.

Being Autumn, is what every book lover would wish for, being trapped in the library (please note that it isnt just a school library) and being liked by two guys. But yes of curse, she need to figure out what she thinks. 😉

I literally swooned all over while reading the book except when getting on a few parts where Autumn would talk with Dallin, because, he really is not being such a nice friend. And sometimes I would think if Dallin and Jeff could be just a thing because Dallin is so attached to his friend.

Love, love, love the book, and it’s so good for your Valentines week read. A five stars for this amazing book! *wink*
