    Heartbreaking

    The night before her eighteenth birthday, Mackenzie Malcom found her twin sister, Willow, dead in their bathroom. She had killed herself. Now she must brave a new town, a new school, a new life, without her other half. The only time she's at peace and not overwhelmed with grief and guilt is when she's with Ryan Jensen. But what secrets is Mackenzie hiding? How will life be for her and her family now? Ryan's Bed broke my heart and made it whole again once I finished reading. Mackenzie's story took me in a rollercoaster ride of emotions and I don't regret one second of it. I want more! I cried, laughed, and screamed with all the drama, angst, and mystery. Ryan's Bed hooked me from the first page and I couldn't put my Kindle down. And the ending? I'm still recovering from Mackenzie's revelation. Mackenzie is going through hell, but she has to be strong for her parents and her little brother. Her whole life changed overnight and now she has to find a way to move on. She's so strong! But she's also very vulnerable and fragile. She's trying to find her identity now that she's lost her twin and she's afraid of becoming Willow. I loved how feisty and sassy she was, especially when standing up to her new school's bullies. Ryan Jensen is a dream. At first I was a little suspicious of him, did not trust him. He was too sweet. But once I started to get to know him and his story, I fell head over heels. He's perfect and made me swoon a lot. Tijan outdid herself with Ryan's Bed. This is a story of a grieving girl and her journey after losing her other half, how she has to fight to move on and stay strong for her family. Tijan touched my heart with Mackenzie's story and she easily made me connect with both this phenomenal story and these perfectly flawed characters. I want more about Mackenzie and Ryan and I want Cora's story! Thank you Tijan for this marvelous book!

    This book is EVERYTHING !!

    I WISH I COULD GIVE THIS BOOK 100 STARS. 29th June, a day Mackenzie will never forget, not just because its her birthday, but because its the day that changed her life forever. And that is all i am going to tell you about this story. Why? Because its so incredibly good, i need to tell you WHY to read it. This author has written a book that will leave its mark. This young couple will blow you away, both emotionally and and even with smiles, hope and pure love, but this is mostly Mackenzie's journey, through the darkness to reach and grasp back life. No matter who we are in life, no matter where we come from, we all will, at some point in life, share the experience of grief and loss, we know and feel the hole left behind, we know the pain of living daily without them, we know the longing and missing, we know how it changes us, we know that Pain!! My heart shattered for this young girl, not only losing a sister, a twin, the other part of herself, but to lose her through suicide, just broke me. Ryan was amazing and is there for Mackenzie in ways that just blew me away. Their developing relationship among the pain is just beautiful. Although I i found parts highly emotional i also found parts just so darned heart warming, that i was able to smile through my tears. Tijan has taken a difficult subject, one we all are aware of, yet not one of us want to have the experience and has written and incredible book that will touch every part of you. Each and every one of us has had dark thoughts at difficult times in our lives. "I hate my life", " I wish it would end", we have our good and bad times. The times in grief when we want so desperately to hear them again, just talk to them again. This story is so emotionally charged, it just pulls you in, your heart is right there with the family, and you feel every single difficult step they take. yet Tijan writes this book giving you so much hope and reminding us that each and everyone of us with understanding and compassion can make it through the worst of times. I am completely blown away with the heart and depth of emotion this book brings. Sometimes we find books that become so endearing to us, sometimes we find books that make us sit up, think, even hit us in ways that make us step back and re evaluate ourselves, and sometimes a book just hits us right in our hearts because its so close to everything we all experience. I challenge you to read this book an not be effected by it.

    Ryan is all you need...all you will ever need

    4.5 stars Sometimes you read a book and know exactly what's going to happen. Sometimes your mind spins theories that seem preposterous. Sometimes it just clicks. That thought/theory that won't stop eating at you. Ryan's Bed by Tijan was intense. It was dark in the lost and consuming way that death is. It was depressing. It seemed for a time- hopeless. But it wasn't, it was filled with hope hidden in the dark. I had a theory. It wouldn't leave me. I tried to change my mind but I just couldn't. In the end, I knew I had been right. Sometimes the simplest answer is the right one. If I could crawl into Ryan's Bed, I would never leave.

    Stunning and compelling read.

    I can honestly say I’ve never read a book quite like this before. It was deeply moving, emotion and honestly, it put me through the wringer and left me limp afterwards. Mackenzie starts the story with a broken soul, one that’s been crushed by the senseless and unbelievable suicide of her sister Willow. That in itself was bad enough, but Mackenzie was the one who found the body of her dead twin. Through a convoluted series of events, Mackenzie and her young brother are left with strangers whom they’d only met hours earlier after her family had attended a welcoming picnic at her father’s new bosses home. Mackenzie finds herself in Ryan’s bed, but not for the reason you think. She got lost and ends up there instead of the room she was supposed to share with Ryan’s sister. Both Ryan and Mackenzie are inextricably drawn together. Ryan feels the need to comfort and protect Mac as he calls her. They slowly grow closer and more of Mackenzie’s past comes to light. She bears the brunt of the loss of her sibling, everyone around her shuts down, her parents are absent and pay little attention to her. Ryan becomes her entire world. Their connection and chemistry is a beautiful thing to behold. Ryan has a piece of himself that is tortured and broken too. They fill in the blanks in each other. There is no angst between these two, but there are outside influences that try to drive them apart. It was heartbreaking to see how horrible girls can be to each other, even in a story. This was an often sad, poignant tale, filled with desperate loss and a longing to fit in. Mackenzie had to find the strength to stand up for herself in the midst of unrelenting hatred. She channeled her inner twin to do so. Willow’s words kept her going, even when at times she despaired of her capacity to go on. I was left reeling when I reached the end of this book. I’m not going to tell you how it ended, you’ll just have to venture there yourself.

    Verrassend
