If seventeen-year-old Skylar Evans were a typical Creek View girl, her future would involve a double-wide trailer, a baby on her hip, and the graveyard shift at Taco Bell. But after graduation, the only thing standing between straightedge Skylar and art school are three minimum-wage months of summer. Skylar can taste the freedom—that is, until her mother loses her job and everything starts coming apart. Torn between her dreams and the people she loves, Skylar realizes everything she’s ever worked for is on the line.Nineteen-year-old Josh Mitchell had a different ticket out of Creek View: the Marines. But after his leg is blown off in Afghanistan, he returns home, a shell of the cocksure boy he used to be. What brings Skylar and Josh together is working at the Paradise—a quirky motel off California’s dusty Highway 99. Despite their differences, their shared isolation turns into an unexpected friendship and soon, something deeper.

There are a lot of things I really liked about I'll Meet You There. I love a good story about two people who fall in love but have a lot to overcome to be together.

If you threw a dystopian or horror story at me, I’d be all over that thing in a second. So, to get out of my comfort zone, I thought I’d pick up I’ll Meet You There, wh...
I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios was everything I had hoped it would be and more. I was anticipating some sort of insta-love aspect in the book, and instead was treated with a slow burn kinda love story that pulled at my heartstrings, made me laugh, swoon, and cry. The story basically revolv...
Wow. I am lost for words and consumed with feels for this story of Skylar, on the verge of getting out of the trailer park and terrified that dream won't become a reality, and Josh, who escaped into the military and he's returned injured without a leg. It would be so easy for this story to be a melo...
4.5 stars. There was some stuff I didn't care for that stems from my dislike of romantic story tropes, but it was more than balanced out by everything I liked and a lot that I loved. A touching love story, and yet so much more. Heavier than it might appear at first glance, but so much worth it.
