A Dark Road by Amanda Lance *Review*

A Dark Road by Amanda Lance
January 12-16, 2015
Not every friendship is as harmless as it seems. Loner James McKay wants nothing to do with Hadley Grayson. After all, the last thing a drug dealer needs is the pretty, new girl trying to be friends. Walking distractions like her lead to trouble, the kind that can get you 10 to 15 behind bars. Likewise, fencing champion Hadley Grayson isn’t thrilled about her family uprooting her during her senior year of high school. At least there’s James McKay, the quiet, mad scientist who is as adorable as he is mysterious. Though McKay may reject the idea of friendship, he gets one whether he wants it or not. But once the lies are told and the rumors spread, the dangers of meth making and dealing are impossible to avoid. Between secrets and overdosing classmates, McKay and Hadley will learn that loneliness can be a two-way street, changing both of their lives forever.


My Review~
3.5 Stars
I enjoyed this book. The story line was good, the characters were well developed. I like how McKay is not your typical perfect male but yet Hadley sees him that way. The friendship that evolves between these two is unique, since there are circumstances that keep McKay from being too open with people. Hadley doesn't give up in her quest to know him. Even when things go bad and her twin is dead set against her being anywhere around McKay. The ending was good but I did feel it was a bit quick. I was left at the end saying, "that's it?". But all in all this is a good read. Maybe there will be more on Hadley and Simon and Jenna.
