Daylight Follows is a standalone new adult romance.
Direction and a sense of purpose for her life evaded Daniella Archer. She was in college, but her classes didn’t hold her interest. She had a boyfriend, but never got butterflies when he was near. Her two best friends were her lifelines, the ones who always stood by her. Then tragedy shattered her world and she sunk into a deep depression. She watched helplessly as the rainy sky mimicked her tears and the dark clouds, her mood.
Garrett Ramsey secretly loved Daniella throughout their high school years. When he moved away, he finally put those feelings behind him and moved on with his life, or so he thought. Just seeing Dani again brought all of the feelings he thought were long dead, straight to the surface again. She never saw him as more than a friend, so he didn’t tell her how he truly felt.
Two people, two paths, both missing something significant. Storms swirled all around and the blackness of night seemed to last forever. They dared to hope daylight would follow.
About the Author:
Oh man. This book. Where do I even start?
This book is painfully beautiful. It’s definitely bittersweet. You feel so much for Daniella, who goes through an awful tragedy within the first couple of pages. Dani is barely hanging on to her life as it is, and then something unexpected happens that turns her whole world upside down.
Until Garrett comes back into town.
They were great friends in high school until Garrett moved away, but he always wanted to be something more. His love for her, and understanding of her emotions, brings Dani back to life in a way that she didn’t think possible.
I flipping LOVED Garrett. He was so beautiful, and honest (to a point), and freaking amazing. I swear I sighed every time that man opened his mouth to speak to Dani. His patience as she mourns, and then giving her exactly what she needed made me fall deeply in love with his character.
This book may have triggers for people. It addresses some different forms of depression in an honest and painful way. It really pushed on my heart because everyone who has ever experienced depression realizes that it’s one of the toughest things to break out of.
I loved Garrett and Dani’s story, and I think other readers can really appreciate the beauty that blossoms from Dani’s suffering.
