Dear Selah,

Do you remember me?
Of course you don’t. So I’m going to give you a refresher course.
I’ve known you for years and years. We used to have beautiful conversations. There was no one that knew you better than me. We were handmade for each other.
Lately, it’s become achingly obvious you’re miserable. You’ve moved back home to take care of your ailing mother. You’ve been looking for a new job, but that’s not going well. Admit it: it’s all too much.
Everyone around you sees your suffering, but they’re not willing to help you.
Everyone but Jackson.
He comes into your life at the perfect moment and offers you everything you could want: a shoulder to lean on, love, and most importantly, hope.
But there’s no one that can compare to me. You seem to forget that I’m your figure 8. Your infinity. You try to run, but I will always find you.

Yours Truly,
Figure 8

Unfortunately there’s not a lot I can say about this book without giving spoilers. FIGURE EIGHT is a psychological thriller. Romance is what I usually read but I do love a good thriller, too. I love a book with twists and turns and just when I think I have it all figured out another twist is thrown in. That’s how this book was. I told someone it was weird because in a sense it was a boring book but also I was so intrigued that I couldn’t stop reading. I meant boring as in no action. There’s no shoot-outs, car chases, punches thrown, etc. But there was a lot of mental action going on. I felt like there were little clues all along through the book that were leading to something big. I just never could figure out what that something big was. Things would happen that would have me asking “What in the world is going on?” and then I’d have to keep reading to find out. I know I’m not giving much information about the book but as I said it’s hard to talk about without giving spoilers. All I can say is despite it being ‘boring’ it was still hard for me to put down and I didn’t like the end. If the ending had been different it would’ve been 4-4.5 stars.
