Publisher's Summary

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.

One of Tijan's Better Books!

This book was typical of Tijan's writing style and based on high school aged kids, but it was not her typical style of spoiled, over indulgent children with daddies black amex cards. The writing was serious, the subject intense, the struggle, therapy and hurdles were real and not made lightly. Truly one of her better bookd by far. I would recommend it for anyone who is looking for a girl meets boy, boy has morals and values, girl has some issues but so does the boy and together without harming the other - they come out from the darkness into the light.

Ryan's Bed

Again I went in blind and wow what I ride, this wasn’t anything like any of the other books I have ready by Tijan.

I don’t know if it was Therese Plummer’s narration or the fact this story just sucks you in. But I couldn’t put it down. I was enthralled.

Unlike the last book, I read where the College aged characters were immature. These High School teenagers were mature. Did they do dumb things? Sometimes yes but you expect that from seniors in high school. Acting out and being D I n K s that is just normal for teenagers.

The subject matter is pretty heavy, and I was so surprised with how well the story was told and explained it felt so very real to me. I had a few moments of emotion, not like that really isn’t new for me I am a big softy but this story will pull at your heartstrings and the ending.. POWERFUL.

Therese Plummer is AMAZING there are no other words to describe her performance in this book but that. Thank you for your incredible talent.

Unexpected Twists

This book was achingly beautiful and sad. The journey and emotional rollercoaster Tijan created is unmatched.

Ryan's bed is a safe haven

Mac's twin sister has killed her self! Her parents left her and her little brother with a family, none of them really know. In the middle of the night, she confused the doors and landed in Ryan's bed where she found peace.

So it began!

Instead of mourning together, the family is falling slowly apart. The little brother gets shipped to a boarding school, the parents bury themselves in work and they don't want to look at Mac because she looks the same as her sister but isn't.

Ryan helps her deal and slowly heal, but first she falls apart.


The narration is great!
Therese Plummer is perfect as Mac. She gets her attitude perfect without sounding monotone!

WOW! all the emotions

What an emotion packed book! I mean that in the Best way. I felt what Mac was feeling all the way to my bones. And enjoyed every heartbreaking, funny, tender moment.

Different

“You can’t battle someone who’s lost everything.”

A unique and angst filled story. The subject matter is heavy. Family, friends, connections and plain old petty girls. The story builds and I felt like it was a bit slow paced as the story unfolded. Although it is YA the main characters appeared more mature (they were in high school). There were a few "whoa" moments too. I did love the connection that Ryan and Mac developed and the unknown (to them) similarities between them.

The narration was not bad, but not my favorite. It was good, just not a favorite. I haven't been listening to Audible long enough to figure out why it wasn't my favorite. Looking forward to more Tijan on Audible!

incredible story

I have never read anything quite like this book. It was powerful to read and to think about. I enjoyed Mackenzies relationship with Ryan and watching her grow in her character. It was a gripping and powerful story that I'm so glad I listened too.

Excellent Narration

Story expressed the roller coaster of emotions after the loss of a loved one. Some parts of the story seemed to drag on or repeat; however, the ending was an interesting twist!

superb

I am a huge Tijan fan, and while I don't usually rush into anything categorised as YA fiction, I loved all the Jaded books and found this had echoes of the teen angst from that series... while at the same time feeling a whole lot more appropriate for oldies like me!
Therese Plummer did an awesome job, and her delivery of the final line made the impact of the twist what it deserved to be. Fabulous.
