    1. “This is forever, Maggie. I would follow you to hell if I had to.” His breath tickled my skin. He kissed my temple. “You are all I want for the rest of my life.”Oh.

    2. "You ran into my life, this beautiful, amazing girl who changed everything." ~ Clay"And maybe what we had, for those few blissful months, had truly been beautiful. Crazy beautiful. Or maybe just crazy."WOW. JustWOW. After finishing this story I honestly didn't know what to do with my emotions. And actually I didn't know what to do with them while I was reading it either. I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster that only went up, up, up and that was bound to come down in the most harsh a [...]

    3. I can’t even deal with what I’m feeling right now. I finished this morning but have not been able to write a review because of the pain I feel right now. I purchased this book three years ago and like most of my books it got buried in a pile on my kindle. I didn’t read the blurb I just plunged into the book. The title, Find Me in the Dark,should have clued me in on what I was getting into… mental illness. There’s a stigma with that illness unlike the more acceptable health issues that [...]

    5. 4.5 Stars”And maybe what we had, for those few blissful months, had truly been beautiful. Crazy beautiful. Or maybe just crazy.”Thank you A.

We experienced his highs and lows, manic episodes, his anger and his desperation to feel normal through the point of view of his girlfriend Maggie.I too love someone who suffers some of the same problems as Cl [...]

    6. “Goodness is your virtue. Quiet beauty your weapon.”Find You in the Dark is a beautifully written story of a young women looking to feel something other than normal and a young man looking to feel just normal. This heartbreakingly real and gut-wrenching portrayal of a young man suffering crippling mental illness and his journey of survival through the love and salvation of a young women, totally gutted me; I fell completely and deeply in pain and in love with Clay and Maggie. Their story was [...]

    8. Wow, I'm in absolute tears and depression right now. This was such a hard book to read. I cried through most of it. I need to get my emotions together to write my review. But after reading the sneak peek for the sequel which is in Clay's POV, I am more than positive that there is light at the end of the tunnel, somewhere. But this is NOT an HEA, so if you're looking for that in this book, don't look further. I need the sequel now!!! My heart hurts so bad for these characters. Full review to come [...]

    9. DID I READ THE WRONG BOOK?!?What in the HELL was that. This is just fucking scary that these girls are rating it five stars.Not only are there editing issues, but the plot was all over the fucking place.Where in this book did you find a love story? Because in the book that I READ, I was rooting for a girl called Maggie May to get the hell out of some twisted, mind-fuck, mentally abusive relationship. Which sadly for me looks like it wont happen. This is just awful.Is it love to be embarrassed in [...]

    10. ★★★★★ Darkness & Freedom ★★★★★♪♫ Hello darkness, my old friend,I've come to talk with you again♪♫ There are many kinds of darkness and many kinds of bonds. The worst are the absence of light in a soul and the restrictions we alone inflict upon us. We are our own worst enemies and we abuse ourselves. It takes more than guts to break what holds you back. To see the fault in you. To ask for help. And stop saying I'm sorry.Sometimes “sorry” is not enough. Sometime [...]

    11. “I can't do this by myself. I don't know what to do, or what to say. I can't help you if you don't want to help yourself.” I said matter of factly.  Clay looked at me for a second, then crossed the room toward me. “That's where you're wrong. You save me every single day. You are the one thing that makes me happy. You are the only thing I need.”OMHYGOD !!!!!!WHAT IN THE WORLD !!!!! AHHHH , MY HEARD HURTS AND MY HEART DONT EVEN TALK ABOUT IT ! IT'S SHREDDED . NOTHING ALL GONE I [...]

    12. Nooooo!!! No No No!!! Oh my goodness! I don't do stories without a happy ever after. This book has torn me to shreds! I was so emotionally invested and I feel like I'd had the world ripped out from under me at 2.30am, when I finished the book, last night.Mean mean mean author!!However, it has to be said, Find You in the Dark was absolutely superb writing. The book was totally gripping. I loved the characters so much. Maggie was brilliantly funny, strong and down to earth. Hot damn. Cue the violi [...]

    14. 4 Emotional stars!!This is the story of Maggie A fun loving girl whose life changes as she literally runs into a boy“Hot damn. Cue the violins and happy cartoon bunnies. I was in the middle of a Disney moment. Because this guy was gorgeous. And we were standing so close to each other. If he hadn't been holding onto a barely contained rage directed at yours truly, it could have almost been construed as romantic.” Meet ClayFrom the moment Maggie meets Clay she is drawn to him like a moth to a [...]

    15. The sea’s evaporatingThough it comes as no surpriseThese clouds we’re seeingThey’re explosions in the skyIt seems it’s writtenBut we can’t read between the lines -:- FIVE FORGET-TO-FEED-THE-KIDS STARS! -:-Maggie On paper, I’m sure Maggie would look to be your typical, life-symmetrical, normal girl. She has very normal hair. A normal face. A normal life with two best friends. She runs cross-country, her parents are still together and very much in love, and she has a 3.5 GPA. (and if a [...]

    16. This book starts off with a prologue reminiscent of the opening lines of Romeo and Juliet, not because the main characters die but because it announces immediately that this book isn't light and frilly and carefree but that it’s tragic and bloody and neurotic (or so it promises). I think what really drew me in were the first pages of Chapter One, where we’re introduced to Maggie, the main character. She appeared to be different than most young women I’ve been reading about lately, which is [...]

    17. WHAT?! How can it end like that??? Such an emotional rollercoaster Even though this story was filled with way more teen angst than I can normally handle, it was all so completely phenomenal. Yes There were moments that I wanted to reach into my ereader and shake some sense into these chatacters But it did seem so very realistic.Throughout this story I kept thinking about my 17 year old daughter How would she react to this situation How connected am I to her & her relationships Would sh [...]

    18. And if he went into the dark again, this time I would be there to find him- to follow him. Because I thought, perhaps quite immaturely, that my love could help him. Maybe our love could do more than just help- Maybe it could heal him. Fix him. Fix everything.This is a story of first loves, intense and passionate. A story of two people, so in love, they thought it was all they needed. If they had each other, everything would be okay. Their love was crazy and it was beautiful. It bordered on being [...]

    19. Is there some unwritten rule about this genre that I don't know?Like many times before, here we have a nice, caring, ordinary girl who meets a mysterious, irresistible, sexy new guy at school with skeletons in his closet, and it's all wrapped up in a high school/friends/parents drama. Sure, it evolves into something more interesting later on, but why put off a reader at the very beginning with same old, same old?[image error]I lost count how many times Clay and Maggie where going back and forth. [...]

    20. OMG! What an absolutely stunning book! SO MUCH EMOTION! I feel like this is a book in two parts. The first part is boy meets girl, and all is swoony and gorgeous, and I was completely swept up in the romantic bliss. The second part is a much darker, more emotional read that ripped my heart out in places, and left me crying at the unfairness of it all. Our heroine is Maggie. And OMG, I absolutely LOVE her! 17 years old, she’s honest, open-minded, sarcastic, and oh so witty. Her inner monologue [...]

    21. … everything had started so simply.A look. A touch.A kiss. Find You In The Dark was raw, beautiful, and soul-moving. I was so emotionally invested that every up and down, every emotion each of the characters expressed, I felt. Maggie Young has had the closest you can get to a perfect life. Great friends. Wonderful parents. Good grades.She has normal. And then Clayton Reed walks into her life. They fall into a world of passion and love, where they believe everything will be okay as long as they [...]

    22. Final rating: 5/5 stars And if he went into the dark again, this time I would be there to find him – to follow him. Because I thought, perhaps quite immaturely, that my love could help him. Maybe our love could do even more than just help – maybe it could heal him. Fix him. Fix everything. I need to recover from reading this book. I was gripped from the start and held there, weeping and crying and wanting to strangle someone until it mercifully let me go. This book deals with some serious is [...]

    23. My Maggie and Clayton:Maggie is opinionated and straightforward 17-years-old teenager with normal life. But when secluded and unpredictable new boy comes to school, her life is about to be completely changedWhat started as ordinary teenage romance story, turned into intense and gut-wrenching story of two young people who learnt the hardest way that love and friendship are not always enough to solve real big problems in your life. This story shows us the disastrous consequences of obsessive and d [...]

    24. Yep, I am in the minority here. Read all the 5 star reviews. Read all the hype about it and jumped on the bandwagon, as usual. The writing was good. The main characters were good but it just dragged on and on for too long. yes the last 20% was very compelling and heartbreaking but the rest of the book just did not do it for me. Maybe I am a bit old and jaded to be reading about 17 year old High School students. Will I read the next one? Probably, cos I got sucked into the hype and had already do [...]

    25. Overall Star Rating: 4.5 StarsLike most books, I didn't read the blurb for this book. I love when it ends up being one of the most self-searching, gut-wrenching books. I had no idea what I was walking into when I started this. The title should have clued me in to something, but I didn't even think to process it. Clayton Reed was the new boy in school. He moved from Florida to Virgina and the high school bully thought he found a new chew toy with Clay and after Maggie literally ran into Clay earl [...]
