That being said, it was a tough read. A teen's suicide shatters a family, and the focus is on their daughter Mackenzie. Moving to a new school she has to make friends in the middle of all her pain and she meets Ryan, who becomes her lifeline. The pain doesn’t go away as she is bullied, forgotten by her family and haunted by her sister talking to her in her head.
As I am writing this as I am still in shock over the ending. In fact I’m kind of gobsmacked and feel like I have to reread it in case I missed clues... Mackenzie’s story is so heart wrenching and while it will make you feel, Ryan’s journey is just as emotional especially when it all is unveiled... I was not expecting the twist at all. My only warning is that it is a teen romance... so for some this may be frustrating...
This story will stay with me...
‘Ryan's Bed’ in my opinion is Tijan's best work yet.
My son has Aspergers, ADHD and severe dyslexia and last year went to his favourite teacher and told her about his suicidal thoughts. I already had him at a Psychologist and with his Pediatrician and medication were working through his depression but it was so scary there for awhile. We pulled him out of school while we helped him get better, coincidently today is his first day back after 5 months off.
Thank you for this book it will always be your crowning glory as like me it will touch so many lives, maybe even save one or two.
I started reading this book during the evening and stayed up through the night reading as I couldn't put it down.
This book will take you on an emotional rollercoaster where it breaks your heart, puts it back together, then breaks it again.
Mack's actions throughout the book and how she reacts to ppl and situations is so realistic and understandable you don't question it. I loved her moments with Ryan of course, but also with Robbie.
Ryan was just amazing. He wasn't perfect, and it was refreshing that he did have a dark side which he didn't make excuses for, and which made him perfect for Mack.
I loved Robbie and how protective both Robbie and Mack are of each other.
I think this is one of Tijans best books, and one of the top reads for the year.
ONE of My TOP TEN FAVES...
This book. It broke me. I have no words. I want more and I want less at the same time. Does that even make sense? No? Well that's still how I feel.
Sadness. Mystery. Love. Forgiveness. Happiness. Anger. Emotions going around.
Characters who have suffered and survived. Tijan has a way to make the reader not only immerse themselves in the story, but also feel the raw power of the words the story is made of. The ending is probably the part that broke me the most. This book touched a special place inside me, and I am so proud of the way that Tijan presented this story to the world.

We meet MacKenzie on the eve of her eighteenth birthday, after she makes the horrific discovery of her twin sisters Willow brutal suicide. After this horrific tragedy befalls this family MacKenzie and her younger brother Robbie are left with the family of her father’s business associate. They are basically left with strangers, disorientated she ends up in their sons Ryan’s bed instead of his sisters Peaches room. For some reason from the moment she gets in his bed she has a feeling of peace and safety. Ryan gets MacKenzie more than anyone else does they have a shared understanding of grief and loss. This is the start of their bonding and attraction to one another.
Mac is very lost and confused, not dealing with her emotions and burying them as much as she can, it feels like her parents are pushing her away and not really dealing with their own grief and mourning the loss of their child. Mac is left all alone and the only one that she really has is Ryan he becomes her safe place but the love that grows between them is strong and something that’s made to last.
This book is an emotional rollercoaster which I was not expecting, it deals with pain and grief and coping with life afterwards, I wasn’t expecting to be as moved as much as I was, my tears were real for this family and characters and the ending totally took my breath away. Simply an amazing book and one of my favourite books so far this year.
This is my favourite Tijan book, and I've read quite a few during these past few months of lockdown. From the Fallen Crest series, to all the standalones - Teardrop Shot, Sustain, the Not-Outcast, the Anti Stepbrother, Rick Prick and Kian. Once in a while a book comes along that just grips you and you can't put it down nor forget it after. Ryan's Bed is one such book for me, the other one being the Dead List by Jennifer Armentrout.
We start the story with Mackenzie crawling into Ryan's bed after her twin sister has committed suicide. She only met Ryan that day at a picnic, and even then that was from afar. This story is about grief and loss, and struggling to deal with the aftermath. Ryan becomes Mac's lifeline, at first helping her so she can sleep and then gradually their relationship evolves into something more. He understands what she's going through because two years prior his own best friend died (we never found out how) and he helps her to navigate her own grief (she is seeing a shrink but she doesn't want to, her parents can't bear to even look at her, her younger brother is shipped off to boarding school, and they're in a new town).
Both Mac and Ryan are strong characters. Mac confronts things head on and doesn't shirk from things, pulling her family back together. Ryan is a star basketball player, with a darker edge brought about by his own brush with his best friend's death. I love that their relationship is unstinting and unequivocal. There's no messing around with the will-he-won't-he, and no love triangles. The issues that they do face, they face together. Maybe that's why I love this book so much.
Plus that twist at the end. Wow. I had to read a follow on excerpt on Tijan's website after that just to see that things ended fine for two of my favourite characters.
I'd rate this book 10* if I could.
