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.

My Review - 4 Stars

This is the sequel to Larkin's Letters, a book that broke my heart. In this follow-up, we see where Ryan is at in his life and see him struggling to come to terms with Larkin's death months later. He decides to start writing to Larkin, explaining what he's feeling and how much he loves and misses her. He subsequently burns the letters and Larkin begins to appear after each burned letter. He looks forward to the visits with her.

"Larkin, no, please don't leave." "Close your eyes, beautiful boy. I promise you I won't leave you alone. I'll be here when you need me."

In the meantime, he meets his new next door neighbor, Lux. She is suffering from the death of a loved one as well. While Ryan likes Lux and finds her attractive, he feel guilty, like he is betraying Larkin. So their spending time together really has its ups and downs. And on more than one occasion, I felt very bad for her, but understood why Ryan acted the way he did.

Jillian writes a beautiful, well-written, very moving story. There were many times I felt Ryan's heartache and lonliness. And Larkin's love for Ryan helped to give him some direction with his life.

I highly encourage you to read this series. You will not be disappointed.

"My beautiful boy. Time heals what reason cannot. And it's time."
I received this ARC in exchange for my honest review.
