Come See About Me by C.K. Kelly Martin
I felt utterly nothing for Liam or his problems. Neither is ready for a “real” relationship, and yet what happens between them feels very real to Leah. And the lovers somehow manage to do it without being perfect the one forever and ever for the rest of eternity soul mates. I like a good dollop of romance, so I just didn’t find their relationship swoonworthy.
It’s absolutely special and has lingered with me. I’ve read a couple of her books and they just blew me away. A word about the sex: Why do we find x.k.kelly at a loss as to what t Come See About me started out as a grief book but ended up veering into “chic lit” territory with a stale friends with benefits storyline.

I really felt that. That being said, this just wasn’t one of them for me. Beauty, you guys were really in love, huh?
Kelly Martin has an immense talent for writing layered characters who you root for and relationships that are absolutely beautiful. The scenes with the two of them were definitely some of my favorites in the book.
Leah, the main character is someone who you quickly come to care about. I met my husband when I was Leah’s age, and her reflections on the early days of their relationship very relatable on a personal level.
It’s the sudden death aspect of the situation that causes Leah to be unable to cope. Martin’s first foray into adult literature is not a simple piece to get into.

I went through losing someone extremely important several years back and I’m not sure I’m quite ready to be taken back there. That’s what we see in Leah’s story, and I love Martin for writing it as excellently as she did.
By then she was thoroughly hooked on fiction about young people. This sounds exceptional, Keertana, and that’s coming from someone who avoids NA like the plague.
She brings what feels like the truth with abuot heartbreaking and hopeful clarity. Runs into him quite literally and on more than one occasion. This one sounds like something I cannot miss.
Heather Roddenberry November 25, at Kelly Martin doesn’t gloss over or sugar-coat Leah’s journey–it’s at times painful and messy view spoiler [like c.k.kellt Leah and Liam first sleep together hide spoiler ] –which makes the glimmers of hope throughout the story all the more poignant.
There was absolutely no stylistic nuance to this story even though it was extremely easy reading. I understood where she was coming from, that others expecting her to get better a certain way, was miles away from what she c.k.kellly for herself. Come See About Me certainly isn’t a teen novel, it’s mature and addresses themes that are not seen in the YA category.
