Larkin's Letters by Jax Jillian - Review Tour


Book Title - Larkin’s Letters
Author - Jax Jillian
Publisher - Tate Publishing
Genre - Contemporary Romance




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.



This is one of the most emotional books I've ever read - make sure you have a box of Kleenex handy when reading!  Ryan and Larkin have been best friends since childhood.  After Larkin is diagnosed with Cancer, Ryan does his best to take care of her while balancing his career as an actor.  During this time, they both realize that they are in love with one another.  Ryan eventually puts his career on hold to stay and take care of Larkin. 

We get to experience all the highs and lows through a series of letters that Larkin writes to Ryan when she first learns of her illness, and Ryan's memories as he reads them.  The writing is excellent, and you feel what they both are feeling.  I can't even tell you how many time I cried while reading knowing that Ryan and Larkin would not have a happy ending because she is already dead at the beginning of the book.  Reading about all their happy times together is bittersweet, but it makes me want to appreciate each day and not take life for granted.
