Have you ever sunk inside yourself to a place of darkness so deep you couldn’t see the light? Had no hope? Felt completely alone in a world filled with so many people?
I have. I’ve lived it, breathed it. 
Because life hated me. 

It disliked me from the moment of conception, despised me when I was born, loathed me when I bounced from each foster home, and kicked me in the gut when I watched the one thing that meant everything to me leave. 

For years, I drifted, unable to find my footing, never knowing what the word stable meant. Then a single moment in time rocked me to my core, changing me and making that solid ground I so desperately craved crumble at my feet, causing me to fall farther than I’d ever imagined. 

The darkness of the swirling tornado that is depression captured me, pulling me down to its depths, drowning me, suffocating me, owning me.

A depth so deep, I didn’t think I’d survive and didn’t care if I did. I only wanted peace. I wanted the pain to disappear. I wanted to be … free. 

Needing to fall into the cyclone of darkness was the only way I could find the light.

I don’t even know how to put into words what I just finished reading. Ryan Michelle just completely knocked the breath out of me with this beautiful book. It was simply amazing and heartfelt.

I have never been a big fan of books with emotions that pull the heart strings. I’m super emotional anyway so I tend to stay away. But with this book I had to read it. There was no not reading it. Reign is a fucking bad ass chick! Seriously this girl hits rock bottom more than once and gets herself up and keeping going. I am in wonder of her. To take that many kicks and have to fight your way out…. kick ass, I tell ya! Lynx… sweet baby Jesus that man. Every woman needs a Lynx. He’s so freaking open and honest and it makes you fall for him even more. No wonder Reign fell. With a man like that she had to. There would be no stopping it. He’s just as damaged as she is and he’s a fighter as well. They are completely perfect together.

Ryan took a very serious very REAL issue and brought light to it in a way to give HOPE! There’s hope for everyone no matter what the situation. That’s what I took from this book. It was an amazing read from beginning to end and so completely different from what she’s written before. I loved it hard!

Ryan Michele has a huge obsession with reading, which only came to life after her best friend said she had to read Twilight. After reading that series, her entire world changed in the blink of an eye. Not only was she sucked into new worlds and all of the wonderful words authors put down on paper, she felt the urge to begin to write down the characters that played inside of her head. In doing so, Safe was born. When she’s not reading or writing, she spends time taking care of her two children and her husband, enjoying the outdoors and laying in the sun.
