I know about this illness—very well—because I suffer from it. It’s been four years since my diagnosis, and ever since, I’ve been living in a dark hole. Voices constantly invading my thoughts. Hallucinations. All of which force me to question if what I’m experiencing is even reality.
But here I am, still hanging on, still breathing and living through it.
That is, until he stumbled into my life. Logan Reed. I don’t want any part of him. I’ve pushed him away, but he isn’t easily deterred. I’ve told him I’m different, but he doesn’t care. He’s trying to slowly break me down. I’m trying just as hard not to let him. He doesn’t know how truly damaged I am; what will happen when he does?
I know the truth—he’ll never be able to look at me the same way again. Just like everybody else.
"My life is a constant reminder of how big a failure I am" - Jenna
I love going into a new book with no expectations and seeing where the story will take me, well by 2% in I was hooked and committed to this story.
Jenna is not living, she is just surviving, just. She has, what her mother likes to call a 'condition' but in medical terms it is called Schizoaffective disorder. It pretty much defines who she is. Some people have called her crazy and her first love left her because of it. Eight months ago her sister died and the impact of that on her has pretty much left her house bound, living with her parents. Her life is very routined.
Then one day Logan Reeves walks into her house and life as she knows it begins to get a bit more unpredictable. With the encouragement of her best friend she decides to let loose a bit and have some fun in a 'friends only' way with Logan. As much as he opens up to Jenna he knows that she is holding back so much from him.
"I'm curious about what goes on in that beautiful mind of yours?" - Logan
Jenna is overwhelmed with feelings for Logan and begins to rely on him being in her life but deep down she knows that she is holding things back from him that in the end will make him walk away from her. When things start to get out of control and Logan sees for himself just how broken Jenna really is he has a choice to make.
"I want her to be surrounded with brightness in her life. I want her to fight through the darkness and find her light someday" - Logan
I loved how the friendship between Logan and Jenna built slowly. There was nothing rushed about it. He was so intuitive to her emotions and could read her body language like he'd known her for years. As a reader I felt every emotion that Jenna was going through and felt so heartbroken for her as she battled with everything going on in her head and in her daily life.
This story put that warm burning feeling in my chest and it stayed there until the end. I laughed, I cried and I could not stop reading it. The writing is absolutely flawless.
I give this 5+ Slow Logan Kisses (SLKs)
