Review: "Meet Me There" by Judy Corry

A couple months ago, I read Judy Corry's Don't Forget Me, a clean YA romance that I both enjoyed and was frustrated by. But I liked it enough to know that I wanted to read other books by Corry, so when I found Meet Me There available through the Kindle Owner's Lending Library, I snapped it up.

A dark Chemistry lab. A fake British accent. It's all fun and games until somebody falls in love.

Ashlyn and Luke have been at war since last spring. What started as sabotaging each other's recipes in Foods class, has now turned into "boyfriend wanted" ads all over the school and Icy Hot in a jock strap. But could there be more to this war than meets the eye?

For Ashlyn, the pranks are a way to take her mind off the toxic relationship she just got out of. But she wonders if a guy will ever see her as more than someone to joke around with. But a chance meeting with a British guy in a dark Chemistry lab has her thinking that maybe she doesn't need to hide behind the pranks and the fake smiles. Maybe it's time to finally let someone in again.

Luke is trying to escape his present. Since his mom died over the summer, it seems like no one cares about him anymore. His dad is absent, and the few friends who do know about his loss prefer to pretend like nothing happened. So when he runs into Ashlyn in the dark lab he uses his fake British accent to pull off the biggest prank of all time. But Luke soon discovers that when it comes to pranks and love, the joke just might be on him.

Meet Me There is a standalone novel in The Ridgewater High series, a collection of simmering YA contemporary romances. If you like sweet romance with ballad-worthy chemistry, swoony kisses and endearing characters then you'll love Judy Corry's latest book.

Meet Me There is super cute, clean YA. The plot is much more straightforward than Don't Forget Me's plot, and it's just such fun! Ashlyn and Luke have such a fun relationship, complicated by the fact that Luke is "British Boy," the guy Ashlyn meets in a dark chemistry lab one day and thinks might be her soulmate. Ashlyn doesn't know British Boy's identity, which makes her growing feelings for Luke problematic.

Anyway, I don't want to say much more except that this book is adorable with some swoon-worthy kisses and truly funny moments. I will definitely be keeping my eye out for more of Corry's books! 4 stars.

Note: Chronologically, this is the first book in Corry's Ridgewater High series, though it was actually published after Don't Forget Me.

Buy (or borrow) the book.
Read my review of Don't Forget Me (3-1/2 stars).

Judy Corry has been addicted to love stories for as long as she can remember. She reads and writes YA & Clean Contemporary Romance because she can't get enough of the feeling of falling in love. She graduated from Southern Utah University in an area that has nothing to do with writing. Some of her favorite things are chick flicks, singing, and playing the piano. She believes in swoon-worthy kisses and happily ever afters.

Judy met her soul mate while in high school, and married him a few years later. She and her husband are raising four beautiful and crazy children in Southern Utah.
