Ryan's Bed

Ryan's Bed

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.I didn’t jump out.I didn’t get embarrassed.I relaxed.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 wa...

    I reread the epilogue three times. Yes. I did. Not because I didn't understand, but because of the intensity of it. The book takes place in the senior year and shows the different ways of suffering with the loss of a loved one. I know that I was glued to the book and only let it go because I had to. RYAN'S BED was different than I imagined and I have a weakness for books like this. Especially when the author is able to capture the real suffering of a person who has lost someone, making the reader feel the same.

    The book is narrated by Mackenzie, a girl who had just moved to a new city with her parents, her twin sister, and her younger brother. Without even giving time to us feel the story the author already make us emotional, since a day before turning 18, Willow, the twin sister of Mac, dies. With their parents running to sort things out, Mackenzie and her brother are taken to the house of a co-worker of their father, totally unknown to them. Mac was going to sleep in their daughter's room, but by a distraction - or fate - she ends up going into the wrong room and lying on Ryan's bed.

    This is about loss and how people are affected by it. How each acts on it. But the focus is on the heroine. We see the sorrow, sadness, the depression; all through the eyes of Mackenzie.

    I don't have much to say. The epilogue has changed everything for me and deserves every possible star by the depth of the theme. By the care the author had to maintain the suffering of Mac looking so real, without softening or hiding it. It is what it is. And despite being "just" a story in a book, it seemed too real to me. Tijan, you wanted to make your readers stop to think about it. And you did it. I can not stop thinking about this story and how starling it was. It was well written and totally worth the reading.

    The author's text flows though the pages, it's natural. It's nice to read. The author has created a heroine we love right on the first page. The connection to her was instantaneous. I already wanted to cry when I had just begun to read! RYAN'S BED has become my favorite book by Tijan. I think, even though it's the beginning of the year, I can tell for sure this is on my 2018 favorites.

    I highly recommend it a million times!

    * I received an ARC of this book. Thank you!

    Eu reli três vezes o epílogo. Sim. Reli. Não porque não entendi, mas, sim, por causa da intensidade dele. O livro se passa no último ano do colegial e mostra as diferentes forma de sofrimento com a perda de uma pessoa querida. Só sei que grudei no livro e só desgrudei da leitura porque fui obrigada. RYAN'S BED foi diferente do que eu imaginava e eu tenho um fraco pra livros assim. Principalmente quando o autora consegue capturar o real sofrimento de uma pessoa que perdeu alguém, fazendo o leitor sentir o mesmo.

    O livro é narrado por Mackenzie, uma garota que a pouco tempo mudou de cidade com seus pais, sua irma gêmea, e seu irmão mais novo. Sem nem dar tempo da gente se situar na história a autora já consegue nos deixar emotivos, já que um dia antes de completarem 18 anos, Willow, a irmã gêmea de Mac, morre. Com os pais correndo para resolver as coisas, Mackenzie e seu irmão são levados a casa de um colega de trabalho do pai, totalmente desconhecidos para eles. Mac iria dormir no quarto da filha deles, mas, por uma distração - ou por destino -acaba entrando no quarto errado e deitando na cama de Ryan.

    Este é um livro sobre a perda e como as pessoas são afetadas com isso. Como cada um age. Entretanto, o foco é na irmã gemêa. Vemos a tristeza, o pesar, a depressão; tudo através dos olhos de Mackenzie.

    Eu não tenho muito o que dizer. O epílogo mudou tudo pra mim e merece todas as estrelas possíveis pela profundidade do tema. Pelo cuidado que a autora toma para manter o sofrimento da Mac real, sem amenizar ou esconder. É o que é. E apesar de ser uma história "criada", pareceu real demais pra mim. Tijan, você queria fazer os seus leitores pararem pra pensar. E você conseguiu. Não consigo parar de pensar nessa história e o quão impactante ela foi. Foi bem escrito e valeu a leitura.

    O texto da autora flui, é natural. É gostoso de ler. Não é nada cansativo. Ela criou uma personagem que agrada logo de cara. A conexão com ela foi instantânea. Já quis chorar quando mal havia começado a ler! RYAN'S BED se tornou meu livro favorito da Tijan. Acho que, mesmo sendo o começo do ano, já entrou, inclusive, para os favoritos de 2018.

    Recomendo um milhão de vezes!

    * Recebi um ARC desse livro. Obrigada!

    I'm already a big fan of Tijan's books but this story blew me out of the water and quickly became my favorite from the author. I have full respect for someone who can write a story about a subject most others would glance over or try to romanticize without writing the full effect of it. Suicide is not pretty, but it can't be ignored and I'm so happy there are authors out there like Tijan that aren't afraid to delve into that topic.

    I'm already a big fan of Tijan's books but this story blew me out of the water and quickly became my favorite from the author. I have full respect for someone who can write a story about a subject most others would glance over or try to romanticize without writing the full effect of it. Suicide is not pretty, but it can't be ignored and I'm so happy there are authors out there like Tijan that aren't afraid to delve into that topic.

    Reading this book shows you that suicide does not end with someones death, it then lives on in those that loved that person. We're introduced to MacKenzie on her 18th birthday, the same night her twin sister committed suicide. It's also the night she meet's Ryan, after accidentally crawling into his bed instead of his sister's. Ryan becomes her safe place, the one person that seems to understand what she's going through. Through her last year of High School, she's without her twin, but Ryan is there to help her find her way.

    This book had me bawling my eyes out at the weirdest times, and I feel like that speaks to just how real it was. The author didn't just fill the book with noticeably sad moments with MacKenzie and her family. Instead it showed the steps to her healing after such a tragic thing in her life where even at moments you would read and think, "oh she's finally getting out of the house" you will actually read and feel how painful it was for MacKenzie to try and move on with her life.

    The book is a romance, I'm not going to deny that, but it was so much more than that which is why I've pretty much rambled on this whole review about nothing more than the brilliant writing. Ryan and MacKenzie had more than just a High School romance for me, they were that couple that proves even though suicide is not pretty, as I stated above, for the survivors it can still lead to a beautiful life.

    I am a big fan of the 

     series, and when I signed up for this ARC, it was with the hope that this book would resemble that awesome series a bit.

    I got what I wanted....partialy :P

    Parts of this book definitely had a "

    . This book gutted me from the moment I started reading the first page..... and we all know how much I love a good cryfest ;)

    This book starts of on June 29th.... the day MacKenzie turns 18.

    This book starts of on June 29th.... the day MacKenzie turns 18.... the same day her twin sister Willow takes her own life....

    MacKenzie and her family have just moved to another town, because of her dad's work. After a horrible tragedy strikes this family down, MacKenzie and her 8 year old brother Robbie, are left with a bussiness associate of their dad's. Their parents have to take care of all sorts of things, and now MacKenzie is stuck with these strangers...not knowing how to feel.....how to be....

    That night she accidently crawls in bed with Ryan, the son of the family. She doesn't know why, but being with him makes her feel safe...and Ryan let's her stay. From then on the only way she can get some sleep, is when she sleeps with him. So she does... every night....and the two of them only grow closer and closer.

    Ryan knows what it's like to lose someone and so he understands MacKenzie and he really wants to be there for her...... the fact that they are both attracted to one another also plays a part....

    But things are not easy.... Mac is very messed up in her head.....her parents won't even look at her, and the girls at the new school hate her, because they want Ryan for themselves....

    Mac is trying her very best not to fall apart...... but maybe falling apart is the way to heal....

    This book was a real suprise to me.... I did not expect to be emotionally gutted. I cried a lot tears, but thanksfully I also smiled a lot of smiles ;)

    So far this is definitely my favorite of this author ! If you don't have a problem reading YA, you should really give this one a try. For those who want to know, there isn't a lot of steam in this one, and what is there is not very detailed....

    There were a few times when I thought Mac was acting a bit childish, and then I remembered that she only just turned 18.....made me feel so freaking old :P

    I highly recommend and now I am off to re-read Fallen Crest High !!

    This book was a no-brainer for me. It’s by Tijan and I love the cover, HOWVER, I was really nervous about this book. When you love an author so much there’s high expectations and so I went into Ryan’s Bed lightly.

    I will have to put the disclaimer on this book: Please read the summary prior to reading Ryan’s Bed. It’s clearly mentioned in the summary that Mackenzie’s sister committed suicide and the book is about Mac dealing with the loss.

    I see the mixed reviews. You will either love

    I will have to put the disclaimer on this book: Please read the summary prior to reading Ryan’s Bed. It’s clearly mentioned in the summary that Mackenzie’s sister committed suicide and the book is about Mac dealing with the loss.

    I see the mixed reviews. You will either love this book (as I did) or not connect with it. This book might even be compared to other famous books that deal with suicide, but please don’t do that. Ryan’s Bed is in a league of its own.

    Okay, I’m done with my little warning.

    I truly loved this book from the first page. I couldn’t stop reading and I read WELL INTO THE NIGHT and if you know anything about me, I don’t stay up late to read books. I love my beauty sleep.

    Ryan’s Bed had everything I wanted in a book, it had drama, hardships, relationships, romance, cute parts and tension. This book doesn’t have a lot of angst, but it has a lot of heart. What I really loved about the book was that it was about relationships. Not just about love relationships, but all forms of relationships. Relationships with friends, family and with lovers.

    Mac’s sister just died, like hours ago and the book is about her world. You see her life through her eyes. She finds comfort in Ryan’s bed, but of course there’s more to the story than two teenagers sleeping in the same bed.

    Ryan isn’t the star of the book and I loved that. He’s a supporting character to Mac’s life. The bond and relationship Ryan and Mac forms is really addictive to read. It’s heartbreaking, compelling and endearing. I love watching their interactions.

    Ryan’s Bed does have a touch of Fallen Crest High aura. There’s a lot of characters and it’s all centered around high school kids. I love reading the interactions between the friends and I love reading the drama that surrounds the teenagers. There are some over the top parts to the storyline but I gobbled that up.

    Mac is a wonderful character to read. She’s so damaged, like really damaged, but I LOVED reading it. I loved watching her unfold and witnessing her life as things develop. As someone who is struggling, she acts above her age and I liked that.

    I take Ryan’s Bed for what it’s worth. It’s about a Heroine struggling and within that timeframe a lot happens. There’s family dynamics, there’s a love interest and new bonds to form. It was a heart-racing read and I’m totally in book hanger mode now.

    An ARC was provided.

Honestly, I expected to cry my way through it. Imagine my surprise when I made it to the last chapter without shedding a single tear. Then, I read the last page. And I sobbed. For like an hour after reading the book, I was crying and thinking and crying some more. That last tid-bit of information shook me to my core.

    Mackenzie, along with her parents, little brother, and twin sister, have just moved states due to her father’s work promotion. She doesn't really know anyone except her family, and she’s getting ready to start her senior year. Mackenzie is the… average one in her family. Both her siblings are extraordinary and she feels plain in comparison. One day shortly after moving, her life is turned upside down. Her twin sister, Willow, kills herself.

    Mackenzie is the person who finds her, and as you can imagine, it’s traumatic for her. She can’t eat, can’t sleep, and doesn’t know what to do with herself. Then, she finds herself in Ryan’s bed. Ryan is a guy who Mackenzie hardly knows. She’s at his parents house and ends up crawling in his bed, at first thinking it’s his sister's. In this bed she finds comfort. She can finally sleep, and just be for a while.

    I LOVED Ryan. I loved Ryan and Mackenzie’s relationship. It started off as just friendship, and Ryan was there for Mackenzie unlike anyone else. He understood her pain and let her be herself, let her react how she needed to react and feel what she needed to feel.

    This story is very much a story of self-discovery, dealing with grief, family issues, and yes- even falling in love. The family aspect was very important, I think. I liked that we got to see how the entire family reacted to this death, how everyone coped, and eventually tried to heal together. Books like this aren’t easy to read. This subject matter is difficult for a lot of people. Anytime I hear of suicide, my heart breaks. Especially teen suicide. I think this is an important book for people to read.

    What I loved most about this story is the strength of both Ryan and Mackenzie. And the ending… I’ll say it again. I got chills. It was so unexpected. And It’s still on my mind. This is a powerful story that will captivate you like only Tijan can! If you’re looking for an unforgettable read, pick up

    is a stand alone YA romance novel by Tijan. Spoken in Mackenzie's own words.

    is a stand alone YA romance novel by Tijan. Spoken in Mackenzie's own words.

    This author has a magical way of cloaking her readers in a safe sense of security until the rug is literally pulled right out from under you. The very first chapter reeled me in so fast, like a fish on a hook I was completely hooked, then when I realised exactly what my eyes were reading my heart just dropped. But like a glutton for punishment I had to keep on reading.

    Mackenzie's family had just recently moved to Oregon due to their father getting a promotion so what should've been a happy time was shrouded in mourning. A family cut to the bone. Because what would've been a day of celebration on June 29th between twins on the day of their eighteenth birthday was anything but because Willow had decided to end her life and Mackenzie was the one that found her that day in their shared bathroom unresponsive. Dead. Gone. One twin left broken beyond repair. Shattered.

    With her parents taking care of all the funeral arrangements, Mackenzie and her brother Robbie stay at their father’s business associates home for the time being until the the most saddest day is behind them.

    This is where I was hoping we'd get to read about the funeral, but sadly we never got that, I just wanted to stay in that emotional mindset a wee bit longer, to feel emotions that I don't necessarily feel on a day to day basis which is where I rely on authors to pull those out of me.

    It is here where Mackenzie walks into Ryan’s room getting lost on her way to his sisters bedroom and literally crawls into his bed. But it’s in his bed that she finally finds solace and can blissfully succumb to sleep.

    Reading this I couldn't imagine how hard it was for the two siblings being entrusted into strangers care, a family they didn't know. My heart literally broke to smithereens for these two.

    Ryan became her safety blanket out of everyone, he seemed to understand what she was going through the most. Leaving his family and moving into a second new home after selling the other new one Ryan and Mackenzie texted daily until high school started back up, starting a new school and the last year of high school at that was another low blow for Mackenzie without her twin beside her, but Ryan was beside her every step of the way.

    Ryan came across so much older than his eighteen year old self in this book, he was her rock when she needed someone, her shelter when things got bad, this was so much more than your typical ya romance novel, we saw so many layers of Mackenzie, the broken girl, the lost girl, the numb girl but above all else the strong girl.

    As to be expected when dealing with this age group and the Queen of high school drama

    is no different when it comes to Tijan delivering us all the angst and heartbreak that she could unleash on us. Everything this author hoped us readers to feel, I felt, admittedly I even shed a tear or two, then the ending rushed at me and I sat there shrouded in sadness. This book gutted me on so many levels.
