Finding the Light by H.M. Sholander
Just when things between Avery and Ryan were calming down life becomes a roller coaster again. Ryan helped Avery through her drug and Alcohol addiction but he was never able to make a breakthrough with his dad.
Ryan learned that you can’t save everyone and they have to make their own choices. Also, you have to open yourself up to be saved.
I think when the terrible thing that happened to Avery went down maybe Ryan should have made a bigger deal. When his own family was down he made a bigger deal. I wanted more emotion from him where Avery was concerned.
I love that the couple took a while before exploring each other physically but then once they did they couldn’t keep their hands off of each other. Avery was a rock for Ryan and it’s good that the relationship wasn’t one sided. Avery and Ryan have a strong relationship with a firm foundation.
This is my second time reading a book by H.M. Sholander. I can honestly say this book was better than the last. The author understands the deep emotions of addiction that most don’t. I also loved how she portrayed the depression that Ryan was in. Its also good that he was able to pull out of it on his own and Avery was there to help. I was so worried that the couple would take a break but there bond is so good. I gave the book 4/5 stars. Loved from beginning to end.
