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 jump out.
I didn’t get embarrassed.
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.
Ryan’s Bed is a beautifully gripping tale that will captivate you whole body, mind, and soul while leaving you completely breathless by the intensity of the author’s words and the emotion behind them. This is the kind of story that will leave your heart raw and exposed by the emotions that you will experience throughout Mackenzie’s journey of understanding and healing from the loss of her twin sister.
Tijan manages to show readers the truth and heartbreak behind the aftermath of suicide and helps us to understand the healing process that loved ones experience. The author handles it perfectly in a delicate manner and I am still trying to repair the pieces of my shattered heart. Ryan came into Mackenzie’s life at the right time and helped her to discover that there is life after death. He became her savior when she needed him the most and she became his happily ever after. Their love was just what each other needed to heal.
All I can think about right now is why the heck did it take me so long to read this book??? This story took me on an emotional rollercoaster ride and I think it’s safe to say that this story has forever changed my life, especially after that unexpected reveal at the end of the story. Let’s just say I did not see that one coming at all, but at the same time it was what this story needed. Hands down one of my all-time favorite read…forever and always!
