Possession (A.M. Johnson)


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.

This book, as a whole, was a good read. It wasn’t terrible but it also didn’t knock my socks (or pants) off. If it snags your attention within the first couple of pages or chapters, it could definitely be read in one sitting. Quick and good read.

My main issue with Possession is Paige’s situation. Not just in the first part of the book or even 75% of the book but the book as a WHOLE. Her “position” she was in. Her “predicament”. I won’t give it all away but the fact that she was still tied to Clark throughout the whole book was an instant turn off for me. Her mind set to be just wreaked of “out of site out of mind”. Girl, call yo lawyer!

Also, there was way too much religion in the book for me. There, I said it.

My favorite part of the entire story was Declan. The way A.M. Johnson crafted a character like him and the way she wrote him was very refreshing. The writing on his mental illness was fascination but sadly, Paige fell extremely flat for me. But Liam, Liam was someone I was intrigued with! All that pent up anger and angst, where you get that from, boy?

Like I said at the beginning, if Possession grabs your attention right at the start, it’s a quick read. If you can connect to both Paige and Declan at an emotional level, you’ll be right at home. I am just sad that I didn’t.
