My dearest Larkin. Help me. I'm drowning.
It has been almost eight months since the love of his life, Larkin, passed, and Ryan Boone has tried to make good on his promise to her to keep living. The letters she left behind had helped him tremendously, but all of a sudden, he felt like he was drowning and only she could save him. The only way he could think to reach out to her was to write her letters, just like she did to him. He never thought that she would actually get them; after all, she was gone. But when he sees her sitting on their private dune reading his letter, his grief would never be the same.
Ryan's Letters, the sequel to Jax Jillian's first novel, Larkin's Letters, takes readers on a journey with Ryan Boone as he struggles to completely come to terms with his wife's death. That struggle becomes even harder when Larkin's ghost comes to visit him each time he writes to her. But when Lux, a beautiful new doctor, moves in next door and befriends Ryan, he must choose between Larkin's visits and a potential new love.
A few years ago I was contacted to review a book that completely floored me. To this day, that book is still one of my all time favorite books, its still the most beautifully written, amazingly tragic book I've ever read, and it was a debut novel. The writing and the story itself are just eloquent. It was also one of the very FEW debut books I have ever given 5 stars to - if I could I would give it 50,000 stars, it deserves them, it deserves to be on every bestseller's list out there and it deserves awards out the wazoo. That book was Larkin's Letters which is the predecessor to Ryan's Letters.
Ryan's Letters is just as amazing as Larkin's Letters was. It is just as eloquently written and just as beautifully tragic. Ryan Boone has lost the love of his life, his true soulmate and he is drowning in grief. Just as Larkin wrote to Ryan, Ryan decides to now write to Larkin and in his letters he voices the feelings he keeps hidden from everyone else. When Larkin starts appearing to Ryan reading his letters my heart just broke. I could actually see in my head and feel the love flowing between these two. Through his letters and Larkin's visits, Larkin begins to help Ryan through his grieving and to continue on with his life which includes meeting someone new and learning to also let that person be there for him through his healing.
In Ryan's Letters we also get one more of Larkin's letters, one she had written to her parents. This was my favorite letter of the book, it totally caved my heart in but I was so happy for the closure it gave her parents.
READ THESE BOOKS, its all I can say, you won't be sorry. You will however need an entire case of tissues. In 2 books this amazing author has captured and portrayed the ultimate love story, one that is for a lifetime and beyond even when that lifetime is short.
