Synopsis: I crawled into Ryan Jensen’s bed that first night by accident.
I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister’s bed—her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should’ve left…
I didn’t jump out.
I didn’t get embarrassed.
And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved.
I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept.
The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could’ve stayed forever, I would have.
He became my sanctuary.
Because—four hours earlier—my twin sister killed herself.
Review: This is the second novel by Tijan that I read and it is true that I was eager to find one of her new stories.
Mac suffered a huge upheaval. Her twin sister committed suicide without her knowing why. But now, the consequences are there and Mac is struggling to keep her head out of the water. On top of that, nobody can watch her in the eyes, everyone sees the half of her that is missing and it’s doubly difficult for Mac. I was so sad for her. She can not move forward and everyone leaves her. She hopes that her family will worry, talk to her, but they can not stay with her. But Ryan is there … She did not know him, and yet one night she makes a mistake and sleeps with him and he becomes her sanctuary. With him she can sleep. Moreover, he will become the only one to be there for her, the only one with whom she can feel at ease and the only one who wants to do anything to help her.
I loved Ryan, he is perfect in fact, it’s the boy that all girls want. I wondered if at some point he was going to say something, but no, he only wants to be there for her and to help her. Their story is very touching and develops slowly. She knows she does not deserve him, that she is not doing well, but she can not let him go. He has become essential to her. Yes, while she thinks she’s going crazy as she sees her sister, hears her in her head, feels her beside her, Ryan will understand her.
You will understand that it is a very touching story and I must even say that I shed some tears during my reading. I really enjoyed reading it and I’m curious to read more by the author.
