By Your Side by Kasie West

By Your Side
Kasie West
Published January 31st 2017 by Harper Teen
Genres:  Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance


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

This was my first Kasie West book, and must I say I need to read all of her books now.  I thought this book was soo cute and sweet.  I love how Autumn gets locked into a library, I mean how awesome would that be, well besides having no food and not being able to take a shower or brush your teeth.  And magically she's stuck there with a boy, too!!  Go figure, right!

At first Dax was kind of a jerk to Autumn, but after a while they got to know each other more and they started liking each other's company.  At first I didn't like Dax at all, but he finally came around I really started liking him.  Autumn actually told Dax things that even her best friends didn't know about.

And then there's Autumn's crush Jeff, I didn't like him at all.  I felt like he really didn't like Autumn for who she was.  I can't believe he didn't know that he left Autumn at the library!!  And then when it was said and done he thought she just randomly left and didn't tell anyone.  Seriously, if you liked the girl you would of found out where she was the whole time!!

So I'm glad Autumn realized that Jeff wasn't the guy for her and instead fell for Dax!  Dax gets Autumn and I love that!!  Overall, I really enjoyed this book!!  I can't wait to read more of Kasie West's books!!
