    You’re like an addiction to me.
    Only it’s not just physical, it’s in my soul.
    On my heart.
    I want you constantly.
    I want you in my bed, in my life, all the time.
    It feels like there’s never a point in time where I don’t think about you.
    Want to kiss you. Hold you.
    Wake up next to you.
    I want to tell you every stupid thing that happens in my day.
    When something makes me laugh, the first thing I think is “I can’t wait to tell Ember.”


    That was actually the cutest moment ever.

    I jumped at the chance to read this when I saw it up on Netgalley. Ms. Wilson is a favorite author of mine, the kind of author where I drop everything when she has a new book out! Once again, I was sucked into her world and couldn't put it down. Bash and Ember have a unique relationship and unique obstacles keeping them apart.

    Since this doesn't release for a couple more months I'll keep my review short for now, but you'll want to mark your calendars for January 7, 2020!

    It’s always a good day when a new Sariah Wilson book comes out. I absolutely love her writing style, her intense (yet still clean) romances, the depth she puts into her characterization, and the fun comedic relief that many of her characters contribute to the story (so many times I caught myself literally laughing out loud). This book was no different and kept me reading way late into the night.

    I loved Ember and Bash as protagonists. They both had some really great qualities in them- loyalty,

    Another winner! Once more, the author has created a wonderful young love romance. In this book, Ember and Bash are ripped apart suddenly when their parents elope and their budding romance becomes illicit. There is significant angst throughout the book as Ember and Bash struggle with their own issues as they try to fit into their new reality.

    Their romance is very sweet and full of promise, until it can't exist. As they struggle through this, clinical depression, drug abuse, and broken families

    The witty banter in Just a Boyfriend is a signature move of Ms. Wilson. In fact, it's one reason I continue to read her books. I love the rapid dialogue between the hero and heroine. And there are some great secondary characters that add to the humor.

    Plus, I was happy to see my faves from book 1 in the series.

    A great, quick romantic read.

    My reaction to this book, as to all Sariah Wilson books is "who needs sleep?"
    Bash (best name ever!) is swoony and awesome and Ember (equally awesome name, same as my first pony) is well rounded and worthy of swoony Bash.

    There are a few deeper themes in this book about mental health, addiction and such. Which while not exactly usual from this author, were well done and fit the story.

    Recommended.

    This one was so good!

    What an impossible situation for Bash and Ember, to be dating already and then their parents (her mom, his dad) get married to each other. The family dynamics change and expectations change as well.

    Thinking he's doing the best for everyone involved, Bash leaves.

    It's now been 5 (or 6) years and Bash and Ember as back in each other's lives. They try to go on with just a friendship, but they soon find out they can't.

    I didn't think it was fair of Bash's father to ask what he

    I received a free copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
    This book is about Bash and Ember. They fell in love in high school but, oh no Fate, their parents met and fell in love, too.
    Their sacrificed their love for their parents' sake. But now, three years later, have they forgotten each other?
    Sweet story. A little bit slow in some moments.

    This is a good second chance forbidden/taboo YA romance. A young high school couple get a rude awakening one day when they find out their parents got married. Now that their relationship is off limits, he decided it was best to leave town... leaving her brokenhearted. Now, several years later, he has returned. That spark is still there between them, but she is determined to keep him in the Friend Zone despite her true feelings. Part of the book is them trying to get back to the friendship they ...more

    After disappearing without a word to her four years ago, Bash is back in Ember's life. Although it's not like he really left, her mom married his dad while they were in high school. Taken completely by surprise by their parents' decision, they knew that they couldn't be together anymore after a few months of dating. Needing space to collect himself Bash moved in with his grandparents across the country. Now he's home for college, and all of the old feelings and hurts are still there for them ...more

    Just a Boyfriend by Sariah Wilson a five-star read that’s not just another story, but the one. This is number two in the End of the Line series, but could be read as stand-alone, there are characters popping up so if you hate spoilers do read them in order, but of you don’t mind then you don’t have to worry. Sariah Wilson has become a go to author for me, she writes a lovely clean romance with enough heat and strength to it that you don’t need anything extra. Ian ‘Bash’ Sebastian will wow you, ...more

    Thank you to NetGalley and the Montlake Romance for the ARC of this book. The review below is entirely my own opinion.

    While the step-sibling trope is not my normal cup-of-tea, I clicked on this when I saw it available on NetGalley because I just really like the way Sariah Wilson tells a story. Something about the way she writes pulls me right in.

    This book deals with more than just Bash and Ember's complex relationship. It touches on topics like depression and substance abuse with sensitivity,

    Just a Boyfriend is the second book in Sariah Wilson’s End of the Line series, and this story is full of teenage angst and misunderstandings. The story starts out well enough, but it evolves into an unrealistic romp into the surreal. I did like the characters in the beginning, however as the story progressed, I lost interest and didn’t really care about their future together. The authors writing style is entertaining, quick-witted and provides both characters POV, but the this book wasn’t ...more

    When these two were first together they were high school sweethearts but then their live turned to a forbidden live since their parents got married. Things had to change between the two and it wasn’t easy for either of them. These two have to navigate their lives differently with each other and boy do they go through hell. This book is entertaining. A low level of heat romance with a great story.

    I would recommend to any romance reader.

    This was a sweet romance read. Very low heat level but very cute story.
    The characters were believable, the dialogue was fantastic and the banter between Bash and Ember had me smiling a lot. The story also touched on some tough subjects in a realistic way. Easy, enjoyable read.

    I received an arc of this book.
