Louisa’s 4.5 Blush Review
I must preface this review by saying my latest girl crush is Shari J Ryan. This book has blown me away and I love her storytelling and writing is beautiful…
This story was so unique, past and present in the lives of Dani & Layne and Aly. Dani, a young teen mother whose decision to be a teen mother was not her own. A tragic moment in her young life but a life-altering moment to be a mom.
Layne, an up and coming local rock star catches meets Dani and his life is forever changed.
This story shows us when they met and 10 years later, facing a fight of their life. A medical diagnosis that will change their lives forever.
Shari J. Ryan once again captured me within just a few pages and kept me reading and had me UP ALL NIGHT. Layne is more than a book boyfriend (become Husband), he’s the soul mate and kindred spirit to Dani. He was more than anyone could ask for in a husband. His dedication and commitment to Dani were unflappable. He would give her his life if he could.
Shari J. Ryan is a beautiful writer and her ability to invoke a range of emotions in me while reading is astounding. She has outdone herself with this beautiful story.
“Sometimes, we don’t know the reason until long after we’ve lived through the purpose…”
I did double duty while reading Shattered Stars – I listened to Last Words at the same time..not the best idea I have ever had. Both books were packed full of emotions that my mind wasn’t ready to handle at the same time!
“You will lose your memory.”
That’s what a doctor told me at just twenty-nine years old.
My headaches and exhaustion weren’t from overexertion like I thought.
It was more. A lot more.
Despite my unimaginable challenges,
I found love at a time I needed it most.
Layne, a rising star and popular frontman,
was unknowingly singing life into my soul through his allusive lyrics.
I lived and breathed for the mesmeric sound of his voice.
Kismet led us to a kind of love anyone would die for.
However, Layne shouldn’t be stuck loving me after I begin to forget him.
We will once again be strangers, separated by a crowd.
I can no longer promise him a future like the one he vowed to me.
Layne is determined to help me get better.
I’m determined to make him see past my illness.
The outcome … to be determined.
