4 1/2 Star Review – Ryan’s Bed by Tijan

4 1/2 Star Review – Ryan’s Bed by Tijan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
I didn’t jump out.
I didn’t get embarrassed.
I relaxed.
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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I haven’t read an ARC in a long time, but this one called my name. I’m glad I listened.

Tijan’s story made me reminisce about the days where I read mostly YA and NA books, like ‘Making Faces’, ‘Wait for You’ and ‘Find you in the Dark’.

These are all stories that have been stored in my mind and my heart, based on the impact they had on me when I read them.

I think that the thing they all have in common is that the authors have this wonderful talent of writing highly emotional subjects in a subtle and almost tranquil way.

They’ve also made me cry so hard, that I couldn’t open my eyes the next morning.
Ryan’s Bed by Tijan is one of those stories that’ll make my sob, however many times I’ve read it. The characterization is eminently penned, and though the storyline is slow to unfold, it had me spellbound the entire time.

My only complaint about this tale is that I felt like something was unresolved when it ended. Don’t misunderstand me. It had a start, a middle and an ending, but something undefined needed to be elaborated, either on these pages or in a new story.

But again, that’s my opinion and I’m sure someone else loved it word for word. And those wonderfully crafted words and sentences did end up being a 4,5-star read for me. And I have that feeling in my stomach that it might go up to 5 after a re-read.

If you like coming of age romance (YA/NA) that will leave you crying – no sobbing, then I am sure this is THE book for you.
