Layla Flaherty had the perfect life, or close to it. Until a stranger gunned her parents down right in front of her, leaving her with seizure inducing PTSD. After years of trying to pass as normal and failing miserably, she resigns herself to being invisible. But new to town Landen O’Brien sees her, and he likes what he sees. Much to Layla’s surprise, he doesn’t freak out when she has a seizure in front of him. He does the exact opposite, calming her until the tremors subside. But Landen has secrets of his own. Secrets that both bind them together and tear them apart.
Scarred by loss, Layla leaves her hometown of Hope Springs, Georgia, hoping to put her painful past behind her and start over in college in California. When she runs into Landen at freshmen orientation, she has a choice to make. Reinforce those steel walls she's built up around herself or give the only boy who can keep her still a second chance.
Landen’s more than ready to tear down those walls but this time when they come crashing down, they might bury her.
Layla is stronger than others believe she is. Layla is more resilient than even she thinks she is. Layla has seen the unthinkable, experienced terrible loss, and now has to experience live with seizure inducing PTSD. Casey Quinn blew me away with her story of a Love that withstands heartache. Every story has two sides, and sometimes those sides tell the same story differently. Things aren't always what they appear... I adored Layla, and how she came completely out of her shell once she went to college. In the featured novella "let you leave," my stomach was in knots the entire short read. I hated how ignored she was. A beautiful young person was invisible, and labeled a freak, because of a disorder completely out of her control. Landen changed that for her. He was the first person to treat her like a normal teenage girl. He broke down her walls. He loved her unconditionally. He also broke her heart into a thousand pieces, and Layla had to put herself back together alone. Determined, Fierce Layla is my favorite! She was going to go through College experiencing life. She refused to let her condition define who she was. She learned to cope with things that in the past triggered episodes, and made actual friends! Friends, People! This was huge for Layla's character! Enter Landen. Reunited, and it feels oh so good! Sexy , secretive... Did I say sexy Landen? This man is a masochist, hungry for a woman who he scorned. He knows she'll hate him if she finds out his secret, and yet he can't help, but squeeze his way back into her life. This man is relentless. He's also still head over heels in Love with Layla . It's almost laughable for Layla to stonewall Landen's attempts at winning her back. Not that I blame her. She knew that he could break her all over again. Thank goodness she gave in, because their scenes together were too juicy to resist. Someone grab me a fan, and a tall drink of something sexy, because these two were Hot, Hot, H-O-T! Hot! The ending was so sweet, and I was beyond thrilled to read the final novella. Can I just say: I WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT CASEY QUINN!! My goodness! It was eye opening to experience the level of guilt a person can have when faced with a disease like Anger. The dialogue between Landen, and his parents was so genius. It was calculated. It was real. I wanted to reach out and bop him on the head, but his Love for Layla brought him full circle. I can say I enjoyed Casey Quinn before this, but this book made me a downright (obsessive) fan. Go ahead. One-click. It's okay. We know you want to. Ps: Anyone know where I can get my own Landen O'Brien?
Memorable quotes: "Suddenly, I have no idea why we've been doing this to each other. It's love plain & simple. You love someone, you show it. Every day, up until your last" "You're the most dangerous kind of beautiful"
