Book Description

Through witnessing her parents' bitter divorce, sixteen-year-old Taylor Brogan has learned what she believes to be a certainty--men lie, men betray, men can't be trusted. When her first boyfriend cheats on her, Taylor can't even pretend to act surprised. After all, her own father left her mother for another woman after fourteen years of marriage, so it was only a matter of time before it happened to her too.

Betrayed one time too many, Taylor vows to give up boys for good. But when she meets sweet, gorgeous Michael Hurst at a party, her resolve to stay single begins to crack. Maybe, in spite of her past, she can trust him not to break her heart. Taylor and Michael begin an exciting-but-cautious romance, hitting several challenges along the way--parental disapproval, family secrets, and the most daunting obstacle of all, Elena Brewster, a calculating beauty who is determined to make Michael hers.

Not just another teen romance, JUST YOU is about learning to embrace the risks involved in trusting someone with your heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved Every Word July 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not sure a short review can do this book justice but I will try. The author, Rebecca Phillips, has done an incredible job of creating a coming of age story that is well worth your time. Taylor is probably one of the most interesting characters that I've come across - this 15 almost 16 year old girl lives in a subtle tornado of emotion as she struggles to deal with heartbreak and trust issues. Her mother is emotionally distant, controlling and so close minded that I wanted to reach into the book and give her a shake. Taylor spends her weekends with her father and his wife and it is while she is staying with them that she meets Michael. The story evolves around their relationship as well as Taylor's relationship with her parents.

Michael is a couple of years older than Taylor and that alone is the catalyst that sets the tone for further conflict with her totally unreasonable mother and therefore with her father who agrees with her mother out of guilt for leaving his first family behind. Michael is a very hot, decent and likeable guy but he's not without his faults. The secondary characters, Robin, Ashley, Lynn, Erin, Elena and Brian are well developed and they all add something to the story. There is one thing I would like to mention - this is a very realistic and extremely well written story that tackles some tough issues - sex, drugs, drinking, parental distance and infidelity. If you find any of these things offensive then perhaps you should look elsewhere. The author has done an amazing job at capturing what real life is like for these characters and I would hate to see her criticized (as I have seen so many times before)for being forthright and honest about their activities. This is a Young Adult novel and not a children's book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Read May 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Such a cute story. Typical high school scene of dating, cheating, drinking, etc. but sweet story of the romance that blossoms between the two main characters. I liked that their relationship was slower but was headed in the direction of a lasting relationship rather than the typical wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am high school drama relationship. Also liked that the parents were present and involved in their kids' lives for the most part. So many books portray absentee parents and not all kids raise themselves! Looking forward to the next book and hopefully they will last thru him going to college!

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeping it real... March 17, 2014
By Tia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sweet young love! With all it's trials & tribulations. Reminds you of simpler times even while navigating thru barracudas & cheating ex-boyfriends. The divorce of Taylor's family is a major issue throughout the book and though divorce is always sad it lends a firm reminder of how life is sometimes - not fair & we don't always get it right the first time. I hope that we get to see how Taylor's relationships continue. I'd go onto say this is a pretty real & accurate portrayal of HS relationships...that is for those of us who don't wear blinders
