♡ ♡ ♡ My thoughts ♡ ♡ ♡
I have no words to describe this wonderful book, which changed my life in a matter of days and left me begging for more. You know, I read a lot of love stories in the last 3 years or so, and each one of them was cute and entertained me, but I can count the ones that really stayed in my heart just with the fingers from one hand. Ava and Sebastian’s story is unique, special and absolutely breathtaking and my favorite at this very moment. There is no doubt it will stay in my heart forever. Special thanks to the author, who was nice enough to send me a copy for review.
When I received the book, I knew I was going to like it, but never did I imagine that I will love it so much. “Our demons, best friends” (best book title ever, btw) is a story about life, love, loss, hope and so many other important things. The main characters are complex, strong and the way Diana made them evolve in the book pleased me so much. Ava and Sebastian are two wounded people, with demons well hidden in their hearts and they find each other only to change each other’s lives, so that in the end they become more powerful and finally, to make peace with themselves.
Ava is a first year resident and her determination for becoming a great doctor mostly comes from her twin sister Ally, who died years ago, leaving her empty on the inside. She always keeps this secret to herself…well, until she meets Sebastian. But he is no better than her. Sebastian is a second year resident, who in the majority of the time keeps himself away from people and likes to deal with his own demons alone, just like Ava does. They fall in love with each from the first time they meet in the cafeteria, but the path to happiness is long and sprinkled with hard, dark times. Slowly (but surely), Sebastian lets Ava in his life, making her to discover his less grumpy side. However, he is so afraid to acknowledge his feelings for her that he pushes Ava away, even though he wants her with his whole heart. Because of his confusing acts, the girl soon starts to believe that he doesn’t like her at all, so she decides to resign herself with the thought that she will never have him the way she wants. But do not worry, because at the end of the book Sebastian resolves this problem in a very swoon worthy way ♡
“MY DEMONS LOVE YOUR DEMONS LIKE CRAZY”
Even though my favorite characters are Ava and Sebastian, I cannot help but love their friends (Colin, Paige, Emily and Miles) too. They gave this precious book a touch of humor and always lightened up the mood. To be honest, Miles won my heart from the very beginning and I love the fact that he and Paige fell in love in the book. I bet their story will be amazing!
Another big plus for ODBF is the playlist that the author shares with us at the end of the book. After I finished it last night, I listened to all of the nine songs and it made me feel so much better. I already knew some of them and some I’ve just discovered, but anyway, they were perfect for this story. It was like I could understand the characters’ feelings better and live their story once again, just by listening the lyrics.
All in all, I highly recommend you this contemporary book. It’s AMAZING!!!
