#Synopsis:

Pop star Abby Murphy is living every girl’s dream. She has fame, fortune, and a handsome boyfriend, a guitar player named Sean. That changes the night she finds him in the arms of another woman. Hurt and betrayed, Abby ends their relationship. But Sean won’t accept the breakup, and she soon learns that he’s had a hidden agenda all along. Overnight, Sean transforms from loving boyfriend to dangerous adversary, and Abby no longer knows who she can trust among her friends and family.

Abby turns to her bodyguard, Danny Nucci, a man who will do everything in his power to keep her safe. But when Abby realizes her feelings for Danny run much deeper than she thought, she refuses to give in to her attraction in order to preserve her new found independence as well as protect Danny from Sean’s machinations.

When Abby finally finds the strength to reclaim her life and acknowledge her growing love for Danny, will she be able to let him in? And will Danny be able to overcome his own demons to be the man she needs him to be? Or will she be forced to let him go forever?

Review:

This is the story we all have been waiting for.  The high anticipated novel is now live at your favorite ebook sites.  In the years of assisting authors with their novels I have come across many debut novels.  I am saying this without bias.  Ladies and gents, Debra Presley’s debut novel is the best debut novel I have ever read in my twenty years of literature studying and reading.  I come from generations of writers.  From grandparents to parents to siblings I have seen all sorts of writing compositions and their elements.  Debra has hit each literati element with such finesse that the only choice was to give her the best rating I can give.  A high 5 plus star rating.  Finding Us does not give readers the idea of the story being written by a novice writer.  Debra’s writing is done so well that it can be seen as being written by someone who had multiple years of literati experience.  A thesis could be written about how well Finding Us covered the major literati elements.  To keep in check with space I will highlight a few of what I found with Finding Us.

Finding Us can be geared toward a multitude of audiences.  It fits a variety of genre’ and can be read by fans of mystery, thrilling action (in and out of sheets), and contemporary romance.  For those that love a strong female rockstar, check you got that.  Like a hot, alpha sort of body guard, check you got that too.  Want some steamy scenes, Finding Us provides reader with some of that as well.  Best of all, desire a happily-ever-after that will have you returning to page one for another fix. check you to top it all off.  Best of all, Debra leaves readers with a message that will help you get your own gotcha moment.  It did for me.

Debra has written each character with rich personality traits the add depth to the story and plot line.  Abby and Danny offset each other in such a positive way that you had no way but to love them instantly.   This was no love-hate relationship≥  There was only instant love.  In addition, these two characters just clicked with each other.  Readers will be able to relate to their situation and can understand the days of what new love feels like.  The challenges each character faces brings to light how well all characters in the story minus the exception of the antagonist help each other through the high and low times.  The antagonists of the story provide readers with just enough angst to keep you on your toes and anticipating what will happen next.

The story is paced so well that you really have not a time to feel any lull.  The plot keeps an even flow from beginning to end.  You have your climaxes that will have your chewing fingernails and at the most exciting part you definitely know who the knight in shining armor is.  And wow, is he a hot!!!

I cannot say enough great things about Finding Us.  Your are missing out on an entertaining read if you do not get your own copy of it.  Over the last year plus, I have watched Debra place her sweat and tears into Finding Us.  Well, Debra your time has come to stand up and take a bow for a novel that is going to be a bestseller.  I cannot wait to see what is on Debra’s horizon.  I will also be adding Finding Us to my paperback collection in the close future.  This just may be one book that you want in your own paperback collection.

Happy Reading!!!  Fall in love with Danny and Abby!!!

Still, he takes a break from his über responsible ways and dates his way through Silver Strand. Except it’s not exactly turning out the way he thought…

On top of that, there’s Maren Walshe, whose combination of sexy and down-to-earth is everything Cohen wants in a girl. But while they’ve recently been talking on the phone and texting every day, they’ve never actually met. Now Maren wants to meet. In person.

Faced with turning his oh-so-safe fantasy girl into an uncertain reality, Cohen and Maren are both about to dive head first, ready or not.

Review:

Risk Me is an heartfelt story of acceptance, love, and third chances.  It deals with a struggle of addiction in the most sympathetic way.  Readers see the struggle that one woman has to overcome the hardship of having a family member on the brisk of death.  Sometimes, all we need is that angel to come pull us out of the dark.  For this woman, her angel is in disguise of a furniture salesman who seeks treasures in the bottom of the ocean.

Marin has dealt with her father’s problems for many years.  She has been the only one to stand by him no matter the problems he gives her.  Marin has a phone call friendship with another co-worker named Cohen.  When they decided to meet no one expects the how changing that moment will be in both of their lives.

Cohen has had his own heartbreak.  He is reeling over the effect of his girlfriends breakup with him.  Ladies and gents, Cohen’s girlfriend was the biggest loser out there.  She never saw what a wonderful guy she had.  That is where I loved Marin.  Marin could see more of him that he saw himself.  She saw how dependable he was and the little adventures he gave her.  It was heartbreaking for me to hear how manipulative his ex was.

I loved the meaning of the story and the richness each character add to the plot line.  Every element fit perfectly like a jigsaw puzzle with a beautiful picture at the end.  That is what made me give Risk Me such a high solid rating.

I recommend Risk Me for lovers of third chances, and fans of a happily ever after that will leave you swooning for days.

Happy Reading, Ladies and Gets!!!  Spend the day in the sun with Marin and Cohen.

Excerpt:

It’s surreal sitting here on my bed, listening to my girlfriend talk, because I’m pretty sure she’s breaking up with me—while wearing my favorite Dodgers T-shirt.

The same one she pulled on after she screwed my brains out and collapsed on my chest, sweaty and giggly, before falling asleep in my arms last night.

“What the hell are you talking about?” I ask, sitting up straighter in the bed and watching her pile all her silky hair on top of her head as she looks at herself in the mirror.

She actually takes a second to check herself out from the side before she bothers to turn and acknowledge me again. Not that I can blame her, since she’s hot as hell, but can the girl focus for two seconds?

“Kensley, I don’t even understand what you’re saying. Last night you were on top of me in this bed telling me how much you love me, and now it’s all over? I’m… This makes no damn sense. At all. So explain it to me.”

She comes over to the bed and sits on the edge carefully. She looks at me, her big brown eyes wide and innocent. It’s a face she makes when she feels guilty.

Come to think of it, it’s a face she made last night. When she stripped her black lacy bra and panties off and pushed me back on the mattress. Just before she straddled me, asked me to talk dirty, then slid my dick into her. While she was whispering that she loved me and always would, she flashed me that sorry look.

My mind flips back to a few hours before.

“Cohen,” she panted, her hips pumping up and down, her gorgeous tits shaking with every bounce. “I’ll never forget you.”

I thought it was a weird thing to say, but my mind wasn’t really focused on her words. I was reaching up to feel the soft, full swell of those perfect tits. Sometimes Kensley says crazy shit. She wants to be an actress, and she’s into role-playing and all that, so I basically ignore most of what she says because we both tend to get wild in the sack. I say lots of things no one who knows me from work or general life would imagine me saying when I have a beautiful girl in bed with me.

“Cohen.” She takes my hand and looks up, every move so deliberate, it’s like she rehearsed it all.

Fuck.

“Last night was… It was my way to say good-bye,” Kensley explains, her voice soft. Theatrically soft. Like she’s gunning for best sympathetic breakup with a pathetic boyfriend.

Double-fuck.

“Good-bye?” I sputter. “Really? Good-bye? We looked at puppies last week. This week you’re ready to say good-bye?”

“Let me go down on you,” she offered. It was a nice gesture, but Kensley didn’t go down on me unless she was saying sorry or she wanted something.

Since I wasn’t pissed at her, I asked, as she sank to her knees, “What do you want, babe? I know a while ago you made that registry at the jewelry store that friend of yours owns, but our anniversary is in a few weeks. I promise, you’ll be happy.”

Her eyes flipped up to my face and she looked…guilty. “Can’t I just do this to be nice?”

I wasn’t going to say no to that. “Of course. And th-th-ank…good freaking God, Kensley.”

And then I didn’t say anything else, because my girlfriend’s tongue was doing crazy, amazing things to my dick, and I wasn’t about to stop that.

Review:

Chasing Cassidy is another hit by D. Kelly.  D. delivers a heartfelt story that will leave you reflecting for days.  Chasing Cassidy and its characters has the talent of entering your soul and piercing you heart.  Readers see the extreme length a man will go to show the woman he loves her worthiness.  Chasing Cassidy is a modern day version of Runaway Bride.

On what is supposed to be a joyful day Cassidy is struggling with her self worth.  Every girl dreams of the fairy tale wedding.  For Cassidy, she wants a small intimate gathering not the hustle and bustle of a high end gathering.  Believing she is not worthy of Zach, Cassidy runs.  Little does Zach know that outside factors played in the leaving of Cassidy.  Zach will need to fight the biggest fight of his life to show Cassidy all that their love encompasses.

D. Kelly knows how to give a novel that will have the readers swooning for the man that Zach represents.  Fans will see another great story by D. that shows the strength that love gives to two deserving people.  The characters involved in Chasing Cassidy add richness to the story line.  The conflicts are not over the top, yet they are heartbreaking.  Cassidy has demons that will take the love of her friends to overcome.  Can Zack help Cassidy rid herself her past?

Get your fingers ready to one-click.  Get Chasing Cassidy and see what all the talk is about.  D. is deserving of a standing ovation for a novel you will never forget.

Happy Reading!!!

EXCERPT

Placing my hand behind her head, I gently roll her over and position myself on top of her. I’m going to make this girl feel the depths of my love if it’s the last thing I do in my life. “I love you,” I whisper a breath away from her lips then cover her mouth with mine. I take my time kissing her then pull away slightly.

“I’m going to love you and only you until the day I take my last breath,” I tell her softly before meeting her lips again, claiming them with mine. This time, I kiss her longer but still don’t breach her mouth with my tongue.

Again, I pull away just a bit but whisper into her mouth in hopes that my words will not only weave themselves into her mind but also into her heart. “Love is love. It comes without strings, without obligation, without judgment, without fear. It is unconditional and all-consuming. I couldn’t separate my love from you if I tried, so please stop trying to push me away because I’m not going anywhere, baby.”

Review, Special Interview, & Giveaway: To Mate an Assassin by Ceri Grenelle @CeriGAuthor

Publication Date: July 28, 2015
Genres: ParanormalRomance

To Mate an Assassin Cover-2Synopsis: 

Love is her enemy…until his beast sets her free.

Cymbeline Kendall’s life is quiet, solitary—until a letter appears in her P.O. box. Then she becomes an Incendiary, a human chosen at birth to be trained to strike like lightning to take out the most dangerous of the Werekind, then fade back into the shadows.

She is a weapon only to be used by the leader of North American shifters. But when she learns the Alphar was unseated three years ago, she sets out to find who’s been pulling her trigger.

Kerrick Masterson has borne the burden of leadership for only a short time, yet he already feels the Alphar power tempting his soul toward the insanity that destroyed his predecessor. He has no time for the woman who breaks into his compound claiming to be his Incendiary, but his beast insists he make the time—for his mate.

In one searing, soul-consuming breath, everything Cymbeline was taught to believe is ripped away. Yet the mystery of who’s been sending her orders remains…and finding the answer could lead to all-out war.

Warning: Contains an assassin who doesn’t tolerate those who hurt the weak, and a shifter leader determined to unlock his new mate’s repressed emotions—even if that puts his balls at risk. Explicit sex, violence, and references to abuse that could be rough on sensitive readers.

5starsReview:

To Mate an Assassin is a phenomenal paranormal full of a unique plot line and twists and turn taking readers on an adventure of a lifetime.  Who can pass up a novel that will have you swooning for the Alphar and rooting for the women who is definitely not a damsel in distress.  Each story following To Mate An Assassin will feature a specific Were and their journey to seeking a mate.

Cymbeline Kendall depends upon order and rule.  She has been swoon to protect the Were’s.  Her leader is the Alphar.  She only reports to him.  Cymbeline has been trained to not show emotions.  Her mission is to catch and kill.  When the last mission ends differently than planned, Cymbeline must find the new Alphar and see who has been sending her these assignments.

Kerrick Masterson has gone from Captain to Alphar.  When the last Alphar went crazy, it was Kerrick’s responsibility to bring peace to his clan.  His desire to protect, especially those that no longer are able to care for themselves.  Than Cymbeline happens to thwart his security brining chaos to The Mansion.  In one moment Kerrick realizes the importance of Cymbeline and is now on a mission to show his woman that not only are emotions okay, but they are something to give asset to everyone.

To Mate an Assassin has some funny times.  My favorite part is where Cymbeline is in holding down a guard and when Kerrick spots her, she nonchalantly waves to him.  There are other parts that just strike me as funny.  This phenomenal story also brings seriousness.  Peace is at jeopardy, and it may be up to Cymbeline and Kerrick to protect the Were’s.

One reason that I gave To Mate an Assassin a solid 5 star rating was the fact that the plot line was engaging yet unique.  To Mate an Assassin also contains depth to it.  Showing a woman trained to kill that emotions are necessary is a task not to be taken lightly for Kerrick.

The other reason that I gave this story the rating was the fact that the character development was absolutely off the charts.  Kerrick and Cymbeline fit each other perfectly.  Where one was weak the other gave strength.  Cymbeline could teach how to be a warrior.  Kerrick could teach how to feel.

I cannot wait to see what else is in store for Ceri.  If the next story is as great as To Mate an Assassin than I am all in.

Enjoy reading this unique paranormal. You definitely won’t be disappointed.

Happy Reading!!!

About Ceri Grenelle

 

Ceri Grenelle-2I’ve always had an active imagination. An imagination that usually took form in the way of zoning out in the middle of conversations. I eventually decided it was time to share my daydreaming with the world and began to put my musings on paper. It started with Harry Potter fanfiction and grew from there.

I am currently living it up in Northern California after a big move from New York City. And by living it up I mean staying home with my cats, obsessively watching episodes of my favorite TV shows, all of which are extremely geeky, and simultaneously reading the next book on my reading list. I do all this while trying not to pig out on unhealthy snacks. As you can tell, I lead a busy life.

Website • Twitter • Facebook • Goodreads

Author Interview:

1.) What/whom inspired you to start writing?
I was a pretty solitary child, and all that time spent in my own head, playing make-believe, gave me the foundation of a very vast imagination. What propelled me to start writing was just a love of reading. I loved the worlds my favorite authors created and thought one day, hell, maybe I should give that a go. I will say that the first thing I ever dabbled in was Harry Potter fanfiction. We all have to get our start somewhere.
 
 
2.) Can you explain to fans what The Lost Alphars Series is about? 

The world of the Lost Alphars Series is set in an altered modern day America. In this world’s timeline, magic has existed and been known of since the dawn of time. There are many different races vying for power, but my story centers specifically around shifters and their society structure. For shifters the continents are divided into territories and each territory is ruled by an Alphar, a shifter that has an immense amount of power and the capability to shift into any animal, not just one. When an Alphar dies, his or her power is passed on to a newborn, but over the past few centuries that hasn’t been happening. The Alphars are dying out. I don’t want to tell too much about the overall story or the characters the reader will meet, but I will say that the journey will be an exciting ride.

3. ) How is To Mate An Assassin different from your first book?
Well, my first book was a contemporary romance MMF. I don’t know if a an M/F paranormal romance can get much more different than that.
 
 
4.) What is the next project you are working on?
I’ll be continuing The Lost Alphars Series but I am also in the process of writing a new Contemporary Romance and a Science Fiction Romance series. Then there are the thousand and one ideas I have rolling around in my head at any given time.

#Synopsis:

An all-new series with an all-new hero! Sam Stone will take your breath away.

Deep down, six hundred and forty feet underground, danger lurks…

Jenny Strafford and her fiance, Stone, are out for a dinner date with friends. It’s supposed to be fun, romantic even, but the setting leaves much to be desired, at least for Jenny. She’s not fond of enclosed spaces, or being underground.

What starts out as a fun evening soon turns into a dangerous struggle to survive.

In order to protect Jenny, Stone must fall back on his military police training. And even those hard-won skills may not be enough to save the love of his life – and over a hundred other innocent people trapped underground with them.

#Excerpt

 

A cold December wind buffeted the mobile CDC command center, setting it to rocking slightly on its wheels as it sat in the small parking lot of the Strata museum.

Logan Stanley ignored the rocking motion under his feet as he stood rigidly in front of his boss. Anger flared through every bone in his body and he strained to keep it in check.

“You’re not serious, Sir?” Logan asked, staring hard at his superior, unwilling to believe that the man was so incredibly cold-hearted.

Dennis Malnon didn’t even flinch at his tone. The man seemed either not to notice Logan’s anger, or he simply did not care whether Logan was angry or not. Either way, what he was proposing was astounding, and Logan couldn’t let it go.

Slim, bordering on emaciated, the CDC supervisor was also overly tall, giving him a stork-like appearance.   His long, beaked nose accentuated this resemblance, as did his beady eyes, slightly stooped shoulders and a head full of white hair that had been cut short, combed neatly and plastered to his skull with lots of hair product. The man’s angular, avian face showed no emotion as he gazed back at Logan.

“I’m completely serious, Logan. In situations like these, when you’re dealing with an unknown, a hundred or so lives is an acceptable loss when compared to a global pandemic.”

SLATE.FINAL1

#Synopsis:

“Some boys will keep it, some will break it, and some boys, they just won’t want it. You gotta be careful who you give your heart to…” Slate Declan

First loves, we all got them. Mine is Slate Declan. He was kind, gentle, and caring. Still, he managed to break my heart. So I put miles between us, and eventually, my heart healed.

I haven’t seen Slate in years, but a couple friends and I are going back to the Bayou for the summer. While I’m visiting my hometown, I’m going to look up Slate Declan. And I plan to break his heart, just as he did mine. I’ll remind him of what he has lost, and then I’ll prove to him that I’ve moved on.

It should be real easy, right?

Well, let me tell you, Slate Declan is not the same guy that I left behind. And there’s another problem. How do you break someone’s heart when they no longer have one?

45starsReview:

Kelly Gendron has written another hit with the newest title for Slate.  The Declan brothers are back to touch your heart and enter your soul.  Slate’s story is tear jerking at times.  It also contains passion and what someone will do all in the name of love.  At the end of the story you are left hungover, yet swooning for another bent from love.

Slate Declan has lived a hard life.  At this point of time he is literally a broken man.  Living a life of  fighting and other aspects has taken the heart out of Slate.  Rayna comes to town and Slate believes he is hallucinating.  The girl that stole his heart years ago is now entering Slate’s mind.  Slate is dead though inside and he refuses to allow anyone to help him.

Rayna is this character that readers will enjoy reading about.  She is caring, loyal, and stubborn to a capital T.  When Rayna decides something nothing will stop her.  Rayna is set to break Slate, but will her intentions actually save this man?  About two-thirds into the book I realized that Rayna has became my favorite character so far.  No matter who hurt Rayna, she placed other’s needs before herself.  Even if that includes the man that shattered her heart.

I am so freaking excited to see Zack’s story.  Each Declan brother’s story gets better and better.  Zack’s story just may ruin readers for all the book boyfriends out there.

A high 4.5 rating for a solid story line, conflicts that will have the reader weeping, and an ending that will have you flying.

 

Happy Reading!!

Review & Excerpt: Without You by Reylynn Purdue @purduereylynn @rockstarlitprlc

Without YouReylynn Purdue
Without You

Release Date: January 29th, 2015

 

About Without You:

Roxanne Daniels was supposed to be spending her summer getting ready to head off to Julliard. That was the plan. But that was before- Before she found her mother’s lifeless body- Before she walked in on her boyfriend in bed with someone else. Before she knew what heart shattering pain felt like.

Now all she wants is for the pain to go away. But it never does.
Until him. A complete stranger who could end up being much more.
But letting go and moving on is easier said than done.

4starsReview:

Without You is a riveting story that will keep you on your toes from beginning to end.  You never know what to expect from one page to the next.  Without includes passion, depth, and even some mystery.  The continuation of the story will be told in Nothing Lasts Forever.

Meet Roxanne Daniels.  She is hurting, broken, and is in a constant state of numbing herself.  She only allows a few people to get close to herself.  That includes her brother, Ryan, her best friend, Tonya, and a family friend, Brent.  Even with those she loves, Roxanne has built a wall so tall that even Prince Charming can’t make it over.

At a Fourth of July event Roxanne meets a stranger that will forever change her life.  An instant attraction occurs so deep that you know that what happens next will mark these two.  Can this stranger heal what is broken inside of Roxanne?

The best part of Without You is the characters.  Each of them were complex characters yet their personalities defined kept them well rounded.  The way the characters fit each other was perfect.  Roxanne, Brent, Ryan, and Tonya all fit together as family.  Tonya was the ever loyal friend.  She was feisty and a spit-fire.  Ryan was the protector older brother who had a rule that Roxanne was not to hook-up with any of his friends.  Brent was the family friend and brotherly towards Roxanne.  As a youth, Roxanne held a secret crush on Brent.

The antagonist of the story was the ex of Roxanne.  Just when Roxanne’s life turned a turn for the worse this boy (definitely not a man) made her life a living hell.  He just keeps popping up in the story, and I wonder how he will fit in the future stories.  He is not trustworthy and gives off a bad vibe.

If you want an enjoyable read to have while at the beach this summer, Without You is perfect for just that.

Happy Reading!!!

Excerpt:

I blinked my eyes, and I looked up at the ceiling. Music from downstairs had come into my room and woken me up. I looked at my alarm clock. It was twenty after six. I rolled onto my side and opened my nightstand drawer. I retrieved the orange medication bottle and sat up. I dumped out the contents into a small pile on my pastel pink comforter. One, two, three, four, five, six…I counted the white pills as I put them back into the bottle. Seven, eight, nine, ten…I wondered if I belonged at one of those meetings for people with addiction problems. I imagined myself standing in front of a room of strangers. “Hi, I’m Roxanne, and I…”I…what? “And I’m a…”The room I was standing in suddenly got a lot smaller. As I looked out at all the faces staring back at me, my stomach twisted. Those weren’t the faces of complete strangers. Every face now belonged to my mom. The word addict stuck in my throat, choking me. But I wasn’t an addict. I could stop at any time. I beheld my mom’s face. Her beautiful blue eyes that had once shined with pride for me were now full of disappointment. I hated seeing her looking at me like that. “You know me. I didn’t used to be this way. I have a good reason for using your pills. I need them. It’s the only thing that eases the pain.”I was begging for her to understand. But her expression of disappointment stayed with me, even as each one of her disappeared. The sound of a slamming door downstairs pulled me back to reality. I glanced around my room, feeling empty. I shook my head, trying to forget the image of my mom’s face. Eleven, twelve, thirteen…I dropped the last pill back into the bottle and twisted the cap on. My heart raced at the thought of running out of pills. I couldn’t run out. I needed them. The pills were crucial because I wasn’t the girl I used to be. That girl had been destroyed the night of graduation—when I’d walked into my home and found my mom’s lifeless body on the kitchen floor. Apparently, I hadn’t had enough heartache because the day after I’d put my mom in the ground, I’d walked in on my boyfriend of the past four years in bed with Miss Slutbag. Who knew a person could endure such heart-shattering pain and survive? I certainly didn’t want to survive, but it’d turned out that someone couldn’t die from heartache alone. If that were possible, I’d be six feet under with my mom right now. I wished I wasn’t the girl who needed pills, who welcomed the paindulling haze they would bring. I wanted to be the girl I once was. My mom had been proud of that girl. It wasn’t fair. I used to be happy. I used to be a whole person. Now, I was just a broken mess. My mom’s lifeless face flashed in my mind. My chest tightened. I turned the bottle in circles between my fingers. The pills had belonged to my mom. She used to get terrible migraines. She had called them her angel pills, stating that each pill would give her a tiny miracle by taking away her pain. The pills hadn’t taken away my hurt. I could feel the agony in every single ounce of my body. It was the kind of pain that had been woven into my soul. However, the pills would dull the pain even if just for a while. Any kind of relief was better than none. My mom’s face was in my head again. This time, she was full of life, sporting her look of disapproval. I tried to forget about what my mom would have probably thought of my new life and how I was spending my time. But I couldn’t, and it was the reason I was now contemplating whether or not to get out of bed. This had become a daily event. I wasn’t sure if most people had to convince themselves to get out of bed and continue with life, but once again, I didn’t used to be this way. I used to wake up at five in the morning just to get a few hours of dancing in before school. My mom had always gotten up with me, coaching me and pushing me to dance my best. She’d constantly reminded me that Juilliard only took the best, and she’d believed I was the best. I looked at my alarm clock through tear-filled eyes. Only five minutes had passed since I last looked at it. It would be dark in a few hours. Music and laughter wafted into my room. My brother must be getting ready for one of his epic parties. Oh, yay. I wiped my eyes and sighed with annoyance at the thought of my brother having another party this week. Brent shouted, “The kegs are here!”My assumption had been confirmed. It made me sick that this was Ryan’s way of dealing with his grief. It was absurd. I clutched the bottle of painkillers. Then again, I guessed we all had our own ways of dealing.
