My dearest Larkin.
Help me.
I'm drowning.
It has been almost eight months since the love of his life, Larkin, passed, and Ryan Boone has tried to make good on his promise to her to keep living. The letters she left behind had helped him tremendously, but all of a sudden, he felt like he was drowning and only she could save him. The only way he could think to reach out to her was to write her letters, just like she did to him. He never thought that she would actually get them; after all, she was gone. But when he sees her sitting on their private dune reading his letter, his grief would never be the same.
Ryan's Letters, the sequel to Jax Jillian's first novel, Larkin's Letters, takes readers on a journey with Ryan Boone as he struggles to completely come to terms with his wife's death. That struggle becomes even harder when Larkin's ghost comes to visit him each time he writes to her. But when Lux, a beautiful new doctor, moves in next door and befriends Ryan, he must choose between Larkin's visits and a potential new love.

I loved the authors debut book "Larkins Letters". In fact it is one of my all time favorite books and this one will be joining it. 

This book broke my heart wide open then slowly put it back together again. The author uses words in a manner that engages the readers emotions so intensely that you should have kleenex close by. 

In this story we visit Ryan months later as he starts to write to Larkin to deal with his pain over her death. His character is believable and your heart breaks for him as he continues his life after Larkin passes. 

Lux his new next door neighbor at times seems over sweet and too nice to be true but her character fits well in this story.

The story line opens the readers mind to the possibility that those we love who have passed can be there to help us move forward in our grief. This book is not for the faint of heart because in the end you can't help but to be changed and more thoughtful.

I give this book 5 STARS and recommend it for everyone.

As Ryan Boone struggles to come to grips with not being able to keep a promise he made to his dying wife, Larkin's Letters propels readers into the mind of Ryan as he struggles with frequent visits from her ghost and a series of letters she left behind.

Ryan has worked hard to become one of Hollywood's most sought-after actors, but no matter how famous he became, he always remained loyal to his childhood best friend, Larkin James. When Larkin is diagnosed with leukemia, Ryan sacrifices his career to be by her side and in turn realizes how much he had always loved her. Throughout Larkin's sickness, Ryan promised her he would never let her die alone. But we learn that not all of our promises are always within our control.
