The help-wanted ad on the bulletin board at Ashland's college was simple enough: mother seeks live-in maid for son. But it turns out Breaker James is a mess in more ways than one. He's confined to a prison of his own making, crippled by his fear of people and any social interaction whatsoever. Every vibe he's giving off is begging Ashland to stay away, yet she finds herself strangely drawn to him. Can she coax him out of his darkness and help him overcome the deep trauma of his past to reclaim a normal life?

A contemporary romance perfect for fans of Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall and JoJo Moyes' Me Before You, AnguiSH delves deep into complex human emotions and the struggle to move forward from devastating past events.

Look at the glory

In Anguish, Breaker learns how to overcome his fears. He began a slow step by step process of breaking down the fears that crippled his life.

The definition of anguish is to experience excruciating or acute distress, suffering, or pain. Breaker’s character suffers from panic attacks and has been able to maintain them with medication up until Heather. Heather triggered a panic attack setting of his fears for social interaction. He wants nothing more than to live a normal life outside the walls of his home.

Ashland talked excessively because of this she struggled to maintain friendships. Ashland was a hard worker with great worth ethics. She was sincere and empathetic towards Breakers anxiety issues. She was a perfect fit for his situation.

The theme for Anguish centered around the stages of slowly gaining back control of ones life after suffering from anxiety attacks. I loved the alternating points of view and how the chapters transitioned from one character to the next disclosing their thoughts and feelings. The characters were honest, open, and straightforward with each other. They were a like able couple. I’m surprised the story had no sex scenes only sexual innuendos and some kissing. I think this might be the first contemporary story with no sex I’ve read.

I’m reminded of the saying, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. In this case Ashton’s voice and ability to distract Breaker with her constant chatter was a treasure he needed.
