Wrong place. Wrong time. Right people.
Jessie Bravo knows what’s wrong with her life; she just doesn’t know what to do about it. Eleven years ago, she saved Tyler Cantrell from getting his ass kicked by gay-bashing high school jocks. Since, they’ve been the closest of friends. Years later, Jessie circled the drain of chronic depression, spiraling out of control, and it was Tyler’s turn to save her. Who knew her best friend would become a Hollywood A-lister? Though Jessie credits Tyler for keeping her together, living in the shadow of her best friend’s celebrity isn’t all it’s cut out to be. It’s up to Jessie to figure out what she has to do to be happy: get better or get lost.
Stardom is on the horizon for British television actor Boyd Kerrington. He’s starring opposite Tyler Cantrell in an American feature film sure to blow his career out the water. For all the years he’s focused on his career, however, he’s settled in his personal life. That is, until he meets Tyler’s best friend, Jessie. Jessie is refreshingly cool, passionate, and compelling…but she’s also complicated. Worse yet, she’s not interested in remaining in the celebrity stratosphere, even for her lifelong friend.
Cristy Rey is such an amazing writer. I truly enjoy her paranormal series so when the opportunity presented itself to read a dark contemporary piece revolving around the very true issue of depression, I jumped at it.
She did an amazing job of making the characters come alive. Their emotions displayed as raw as they would in real life. My heart beats for them and I bite my nails anticipating their next moves.
This isn’t your classical love triangle of 2 boys and a girl fighting for eternal love. It’s about a girl battling depression, her gay childhood friend and his fiend that loves her. It’s emotional and heartbreaking but not in the traditional sense.
I tip my Nerd Girl hat to you again (and I know I will again) Cristy Rey! I enjoyed every single word of Heart Grow Fonder! Everyone should enjoy your gift!
