I want to start off first by saying that I really enjoyed this book. I was so engrossed that I finished it in one day. The relationship between Hannah and Deacon, although it kind of sprung up suddenly out of nowhere, was everything I remember a teenage romance to be. They moved fast and fell hard, it was full of teenage angst, and both had issues and insecurities that got in the way. They didn’t really talk about their feelings, which was one of the driving forces behind Hannah’s insecurities when it came to their relationship, but their souls spoke to each other on a broken level that neither recognized at the time. Both were looking for love and acceptance and found it in each other. Very sweet, although dark, first love story.
I did mark down a star, however, for a couple of reasons. Although I really enjoyed the book, Deacon’s viewpoint on his own drug dealing struck me the wrong way. I realize his whole character is built around his being the local drug dealer, and I’m sure in order to be one you have to have a lapse in conscience somewhere, but as a high school student he admits that his one desire is to get his customers hooked so that they keep coming back for more, ensuring him more money and power. What high school kid thinks like that? Another reason for a star markdown is the ending, the Epilogue. I won’t add any details because I can’t without giving away huge spoiler, but you think the book is wrapped up, done, then you read the epilogue and are thrown this huge twist and now I’m like wait what?? I’m so confused. Was that a cliffhanger? Is there a sequel? But how can there be a sequel….I am equal parts irritated and intrigued. I’m irritated that, without the addition of the epilogue, the story is essentially over, but with the addition of the epilogue, I now have so many questions and I need answers! I’m not even sure the epilogue makes sense with the story because it seriously leaves the reader confused on what you thought had happened in the final chapter. If you hate cliffhangers, just skip the epilogue, this is a great book.
5.0 out of 5 stars I Like You Like This will leave you wanting more!

From the minute Hannah was introduced I knew her. The inner monologue of teenage angst felt reminiscent of a time in all of our lives when self-doubt and low self-esteem takes over. From fussing with her unruly hair to covering her acne with makeup, Hannah was someone I immediately wanted to root for. Her battle with the popular girls, all who have secrets of their own, and her first encounter with Deacon, the mysterious drug dealer, created a foundation for the mystery behind the characters’ hidden lives, pulling me in to want to know more. I turned page after page as the story unraveled, each detail bringing it together into a tragic, yet hopeful conclusion. The author not only weaved a beautiful and complicated story between Hannah and Deacon, but also fulfilled that desire to see the good guy (or girl in this case) get what no one else before her could have. I became lost in the rocky yet warm way these characters found their way to each other. I sped through the last chapter honestly expecting to leave the book with disappointment. However, instead, I was left with my jaw dropped, anxious and eager for what will happen next. I Like You Like This satisfies all the check boxes of a heavy, yet easy to read YA story. When I leave a book on the table invested in the characters, I am a happy reader and that’s exactly how I felt after finishing. It’s a must read!
5.0 out of 5 stars MUST READ, adults and young adults

WHAT A GREAT READ! As a mother of an 8 year old girl, getting a glimpse of her high school years ahead through this book, while reliving my own, so many themes and future conversations to have. This was NOT just geared towards younger readers but I felt myself glued to each page as well. I finished hoping for a sequel (which happily was already in the works). LOVE Ms. Cumiskey as an author (and honored to know her and call her a friend as well). Well done!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Young Adult literature

Great flow and very easy to read. Completely relatable for anyone who has ever been a teenager. We read this book for book club and everyone really enjoyed it. The author was gracious enough to join us via webcam for the discussion and we really appreciated her insight and cannot wait for the next book. If you have a teenager who needs to pick a fiction book for a book report, this would be an excellent choice but it’s enjoyable for those of us that were once teenagers too!
