Katie McGarry's "Take Me On" + Foster the People's "Coming of Age"

Katie McGarry is one of those authors for me - whatever she writes, I'll read it. My first book by her was her 2nd full size book, "Dare You To." I was lured in through a nice cover on NetGalley. If you're not sure how you feel about Katie, here's an excellent free ebook you can read to get a little taste (if you don't have a kindle, you can download a free kindle app to read it). 

Katie writes wonderfully imperfect people - they all have realistic flaws, they all have their serious issues. They're all a little scared to love, and then they meet that special someone. 

From Goodreads:

Acclaimed author Katie McGarry returns with the knockout new story of two high school seniors who are about to learn what winning really means.

Champion kickboxer Haley swore she'd never set foot in the ring again after one tragic night. But then the guy she can't stop thinking about accepts a mixed martial arts fight in her honor. Suddenly, Haley has to train West Young. All attitude, West is everything Haley promised herself she'd stay away from. Yet he won't last five seconds in the ring without her help.

West is keeping a big secret from Haley. About who he really is. But helping her-fighting for her-is a shot at redemption. Especially since it's his fault his family is falling apart. He can't change the past, but maybe he can change Haley's future.

Hayley and West have agreed to keep their relationship strictly in the ring. But as an unexpected bond forms between them and attraction mocks their best intentions, they'll face their darkest fears and discover love is worth fighting for.

This book brings us more from West Young, little brother of Rachel Young (from her third book, my personal favorite, "Crash Into You"), which also means we get more Isaiah. 

If that's not enough incentive, I just don't know what else to tell you. Go read the free book I linked to above. That should convince you. :)

For West!

Feels like, feels like it's coming
It feels like, feels like
Like a coming of age
Feels like, feels like it's coming
It feels like, feels like a coming of age

And when my fear pulls me out to sea
And the stars are hidden by my pride and my enemies
I seem to hurt the people that I care the most
Just like an animal I protect my pride
When I'm too bruised to fight
And even when I'm wrong I tend to think I'm right
Well I'm bored of the game
And too tired to rage
