Levitate by Kaylee Ryan

LevitateTrust. Five Letters. One Word.

I'm the girl who doesn't let anyone in. My world was shattered and turned upside down in one night. Since then I've been trying to live, if that's what you call it, but fighting the anxiety of what happened and trusting others is hard. Each day is a struggle to reach for the unknown.

Truth. Five Letters. One Word.

I watched my father give my mother the world and the stars. She took everything from him, then left him as a broken man with nothing to live for. I told myself I'd never fall in love. I'm guarding my heart and emotions, only looking out for number one. The only way to have truth in any relationship is to stay true to yourself.

Just when you think you've got it all figured out, you realize your puzzle is unfinished. You find a piece you never thought you needed until everything changes with one touch.

After that...you levitate.
 

REVIEW: ****

This was a heartfelt book. Very emotional and easy to read. The characters were easy to understand and relate to and the romance was sweet. It did not move overly fast (I hate it when they fall in love in less than a day or two), but it was a steadily building relationship. It was well written and well paced throughout the entire book. I did think some of the things...like her fathers quick acceptance...was a bit trite but it did not diminish from the story.
