This book absolutely gutted me. I honestly felt short of breathe after finishing it. I felt like I was drowning in emotion during Left Drowning (pun intended).
Blythe suffered an irreparable tragedy four years ago and is barely skating by while Christopher is doing everything he can not to be noticed and faking his way through life. After meeting, they begin to heal each other in ways neither thought was possible. Their relationship is explosive, hot, and so damn sweet.
This book encompasses a true once in a lifetime love. It has skyrocketed right to the top of my favorites shelf. Simply awe-inspiring.
What does it take to rise from life’s depths, swim against the current, and breathe?
Weighted down by the loss of her parents, Blythe McGuire struggles to keep her head above water as she trudges through her last year at Matthews College. Then a chance meeting sends Blythe crashing into something she doesn’t expect—an undeniable attraction to a dark-haired senior named Chris Shepherd, whose past may be even more complicated than her own. As their relationship deepens, Chris pulls Blythe out of the stupor she’s been in since the night a fire took half her family. She begins to heal, and even, haltingly, to love this guy who helps her find new paths to pleasure and self-discovery. But as Blythe moves into calmer waters, she realizes Chris is the one still strangled by his family’s traumatic history. As dark currents threaten to pull him under, Blythe may be the only person who can keep him from drowning.
This book is intended for mature audiences due to strong language and sexual content.
