Ryan’s Bed Tijan
I am voluntarily reviewing this ARC.
I love reviewing all books. Having said that…I am a huge Tijan fan, so when I found out I got an ARC, it was like I won the lottery!!!! Soooo, I am about to start reading, and I know that I’m in for something good!!! Here we
Here’s a quote that for me, just captures the real ness of Tijan’s characters…
“COUNSELING SESSION ONE “Hello, Mackenzie. My name is Naomi. Your parents thought it was a good idea if you had someone to talk to during this time, but I want to help you in any way you need. So, why don’t you tell me where you’d like to start?” “I want to leave.” And I did.”
I love how gritty and real Tijan’s characters always are.
This book addresses a heart breaking issue. Suicide is a subject that is very close to my heart and has affected me in my immediate family and in the family of someone very close to me. Ryan’s bed starts when Mackenzie discovers that her twin sister has taken her life. The book then follows this family through the agony of navigating the crushing grief of losing a twin, a big sister, and a daughter. I cried so much. Tijan wrote Mackenzie, a beautiful, strong, caring individual. And Ryan, whom she accidentally ended up sleeping in his bed, their relationship is just amazing. Having dealt with his own losses, he understands Mackenzie, and ultimately falls for her. The last chapter of this book had my heart pounding, and the last page had me in tears. This is an important book. Tijan, thank you for this heart felt work. Thank you for Willow and Mackenzie and Ryan.
This is a must read.
