Something Like Spring by Jay Bell cover artNothing in this world is permanent. Friends, lovers, even family, can all disappear in the blink of an eye. Without these anchors, it’s all too easy to find oneself drifting.

Jason Grant doesn’t have much, aside from a beat-up old guitar and knack for getting kicked out of foster homes. His latest placement is set to be just another in a long line of failures. Then he meets Caesar Hubbard, a handsome guy who lives down the hall. For the first time in his life, Jason wants to stay, which means learning to be part of a family, and not letting his feelings—or his actions—ruin his first real chance of falling in love.

Something Like Spring introduces a new character to the Seasons saga, one with a troubled past and an equally turbulent future. Jason must traverse a winding road fraught with emotional conflicts and tough decisions… a road that might just lead to a certain couple in Austin.

The Premise:

Something Like Spring William TownsonEach Something Like… book has been from a different perspective. We began the story with Ben, then we got to see Tim’s side of the story. We even spent some time in Jace’s shoes. After three books, it’s safe to say the events of Summer have been thoroughly explored. So with Spring,it feels like time to move on, to take a trip to the future and see what happens after the previous three books. We do so through a fresh pair of eyes, one belonging to a character we haven’t met before. Jason Grant has his own story to tell, but eventually he also learns about Ben and Tim’s past, allowing us one final glimpse back. Since Jason wasn’t involved in previous events, he has perhaps the most unbiased perspective. And he can ask the last lingering questions. He also takes part in the future. Time is moving on for Ben and Tim, and Jason is there to witness what happens. By reading Something Like Spring, you can be there too!
