BLOG TOUR + REVIEW + GIVEAWAY: Keep Me Still by Caisey Quinn

Layla Flaherty had the perfect life, or close to it. Until a stranger gunned her parents down right in front of her, leaving her with seizure inducing PTSD. After years of trying to pass as normal and failing miserably, she resigns herself to being invisible. But new to town Landen O’Brien sees her, and he likes what he sees. Much to Layla’s surprise, he doesn’t freak out when she has a seizure in front of him. He does the exact opposite, calming her until the tremors subside. But Landen has secrets of his own. Secrets that both bind them together and tear them apart. 

Scarred by loss, Layla leaves her hometown of Hope Springs, Georgia, hoping to put her painful past behind her and start over in college in California. When she runs into Landen at freshmen orientation, she has a choice to make. Reinforce those steel walls she's built up around herself or give the only boy who can keep her still a second chance.

Landen’s more than ready to tear down those walls but this time when they come crashing down, they might bury her.

This first captured my eyes a while back and was really looking forward to reading it after all the amazing reviews that has received. It definitely didn't disappoint and certainly met my expectation.

The beautiful Layla who has a medical condition of PTSD, you feel she lacks socially into the world and kept herself in the corner kind of girl. Throughout the story you get an understanding into her mind but also how she feels about her condition especially with her seizures. Try and be Invisible after a breakup was her only way of coping. 

Soon after when she starts College, she sees the one person that broke her heart back in High School. You feel the heartache that she was left with but still feel the connection between then.

“The boy who saw me at my worst and kept me still.”  

This books makes you truly believe that second chances can come true and you can be given that one more chance to make it right. I loved the way that Caisey has written this story with such emotion, for those that feel they are not perfect, can still find their one true love. In both points of view it gives that extra connection towards the characters and with great details it certainly is achieved. I would recommend this book to those wanting a heartfelt romantic with no cliffhanging ending. A definite take a moment after reading but also will read again kind of book. 

“You came to California for me, to be a part of my dream. To keep me still, to keep safe if I needed you. I need you, Landen. I need you so much. I need us. I don’t know how much time I have. I don’t know how much time any of us have. But I know that I want to spend whatever time I have left, every second of it, loving you. Being a part of your dream. Please let me.”
