Read full description of the books:
Nothing makes me happier than picking up a book and being taken by surprise... and this book did just that! I think it was because it was refreshingly different and the character of Callie and her life of living with extreme OCD was perfectly written. It was so interesting being inside her mind and I was feeling her struggles and frustrations right along with her. I actually think I have a much clearer understanding of OCD and the impact it not only has on the person with it... but also how it affects those around them. They live in constant worry and it can be exhausting.
Callie has an amazing family who supports her and looks after her very carefully, especially her sisters... but at the same time they live with the hope that she will find a way to overcome her OCD issues so that she can live a more fulfilling life. She is a prisoner to this affliction... her fear of germs and of all things dirty makes it difficult to enjoy even the smallest trips out anywhere. Her world is all about routine, obsessive cleaning and avoidance of anything that might make her sick. Even though she knows that most of her fears are ridiculous, she can't seem to rid herself of them. She has a running dialogue of music in her head... I didn't recognize a lot of the music... but, if you do then that part of the story will be very entertaining.
She decides to begin seeking medical treatment for her OCD and this leads her to Dr. Blake. Dr. Blake takes an invested interest in helping Callie because he has quite a lot of experience with living with someone with OCD. I fell in love with this guy very quickly... his patient and understanding ways were the best medicine for Callie. Callie develops a rare trust in him, their attraction to each other grows and you begin to see a light of hope for her.
And then, we have that ending... sighhhhh... why???? It is a bit of a cliffhanger... I do hope the way it ended means we are getting a second book! Normally I would rate a bit lower because of this... I hate cliffies. But, I can't ignore the fact that these characters were so well written, the story was very engaging and original and it left me wanting more. So, I do think that it is deserving of 5 stars for that alone.
So glad I decided to pick this one up...
