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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
You can't help but to be changed and more thoughtful 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.

Favorite Quotes: “Dealing with sadness and grief made him feel like a fish out of water – unable to breathe. A feeling no one wants to have.” “You are the day that keeps me breathing. You are the night that keeps me dreaming. You are the sun that keeps me warm, and the moon that lights my darkness. You are everything that I need and everything that I want. When I look into your eyes, I see my future. I want to be your breath, your dream, your sun, and your moon. But most importantly, I want to be your tomorrow.” My Review: On the heels of Larkin’s Letters, Ryan’s Letters is yet another deeply moving and well-written masterpiece by Jax Jillian. I don’t know how she does it, but she squeezes my cold heart and stings my eyes with her words, and she achieves this feat repeatedly and without being sappy. The plot is unique, interesting, creative, and relevant. Ryan’s sorrow and pain are palpable and intense, yet somehow the story is hopeful and not maudlin. I enjoyed the book and remained entertained and engaged from beginning to end.
