Ryan’s Bed by Tijan is her newest release and probably the one that hit me the hardest. This story follows the life of one twin as she navigates life after the tragic loss of her sister.
The story line is easy to follow and as with all Tijan’s writing it tugs at your heartstrings and makes you fall in love with her characters. This is not the typical romance where two people meet and fall in love, overcome some injustice and then live happily ever after. None of Tijan’s books are the typical romance and thank goodness for that. Her books are some of the best I have ever read and will continue to read.
Ryan’s Bed is full of superb editing and storytelling. Unlike other stories this one starts with a tragedy and makes you hurt from the very first chapter. Tijan is truly a master at storytelling and has a way of making her characters come to life. She knows how to make the biggest impact and Ryan’s Bed is a story that will stay with me for a long time.
I gave this book a full 5 stars for many reasons. If I could give it more I would. The story line flowed and never once was I pulled out of the story. I am normally a fast reader and this book proved to be more of the same. I could not stop reading and it only took me about two and a half hours to finish. It doesn’t end the way I expected it to at all, and that one twist makes the entire book worth it. The whole story line hit close to home and could potentially hold triggers for people who have dealt with suicide in their lives.
I recommend this book to everyone who can handle the topic of suicide. Tijan writes about it in a tasteful manner and doesn’t dance around the subject.
Go read this book, it will change your life.
