Paige Simon was the only girl Declan ever loved. The only one capable of silencing his voices, the only person to ever have faith in who he was, until the day her faith turned to doubt and destroyed everything they’d made together.

Declan O’Connell was the only person Paige could be herself with. The only one she could rely on, until the day she was forced to make a choice that would condemn them both.

They’ve had years apart, and second chances don’t belong to the damned. But when you come face to face with your savior, it’s almost impossible to walk away. In order to move beyond the sins of their past, and forever silence the demons in his head, they’ll have to risk it all.

But with love, there are real reasons to be afraid and, sometimes… your salvation is your damnation.

Possession is the first book of the Avenue Ink Series by @am_johnson_author.

What an amazing book! Possession is as poetic as it is devastating.

Declan and Paige’s relationship is complicated and their love for each other is so, so pure. The way they broke each other and then, together, mended their hearts. They weren’t perfect as teenagers and they aren’t perfect as adults, but they are soul mates and at the end, love is what matters.

I suffered with Declan, I cried with Paige, and I loved Liam and Kieran. All the characters were exquisitely create and equally necessary to tell the story.

I feel like this book taught me a lesson. Even thought it touched subjects as mental health and religion, all that was just the background to a bigger picture. I finished the story with a sense of accomplishment. Even though I miss Dex and Paige, I felt like their story went full circle and the end was just perfect.

I will wait anxiously for “Kingdom”, Liam’s book. He’s such a great guy, he deserves his happy ending too.

If you like second chance romances and angst, you’ll love Possession.
