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.

"Her joy was my joy. My love was her love. Her pain was my pain. Paige and I were one."
I read many books a year, many books a month, and many books a week. But each month, each year, each week, there is one book that always sticks with me...one that you can never forget. You can't forget where you were sitting, you can't forget how you felt, and you can't forget how beautiful the story was. One that you recommend to everyone.
This. Is. The. One.
Possession is an utterly breathtaking read. Truly. One that you can never forget reading. Every thing about this book, killed me with feels and crushed my emotions. A lot of cupcakes were consumed and a lot of tears were shed while reading. But it's not that the book is just overall sad...cause it's not. It's just so raw and real. That you feel the characters pain. Every inch.
"Without him there was no color."
Possession is the first book in the Avenues Ink Series and follows the story of Declan and Paige. Declan suffers from a mild case of schizophrenia and it has destroyed his life. Nothing has been easy for him. He's never felt normal and he knows he never will. Declan used to think he was crazy as a kid because the voices wouldn't stop. He could hear things that other people couldn't and it drove him mad.
Declan has two strong brothers, a loving mother, and a drunk of a father. His brothers have never failed and always been there for him. Even when Paige left him...breaking his heart forever. But to heal, he loses himself in art. He paints like a mad man. And he's beyond talented. He uses the amazing talents in his brothers tattoo shop...where he is a full time tattoo artist.
"She was once my ruin, and she could easily rip me apart again, and I think I'd let her."
Paige has never had an easy life. Though when she was little from the eye, it might look like she is rich, has a beloved family, and goes to a good school. But that was never the case behind closed doors. She was never really happy and never really living until Declan came into her life. Everything begin to change for both of them.
He opened up a world full of color for her and she had the strength to stop the voices. These two needed each other...they craved each other. Like an artist craves it's never paint stroke. Nothing could have prepared them for what life was about to give them.
"He was the only one that saw me...the only one."
Now years later, after serious heartbreak these two are thrust back into each others lives in an impossible way that they may not want. They both tried to move on for so long but now they are realizing they may need each other to survive this thing called life.
