Review: Written In the Oceans by Jeannie Choe

Rhylan Matthews is Hollywood’s hottest ‘it’ star, gracing his baby blues and perfectly chiseled jawline on almost every movie screen, billboard, and red carpet. He’s got it made. But not everything is as it seems. Underneath all the glitz and glamor, Rhylan Matthews is dealing with his own slew of demons making him realize how lonely stardom can really be.

As a typical college student and on the cusp of entering the real world once she graduates, Ellie doesn’t understand why her future doesn’t hold the same expectations as it does for others. With her grief pulling her down along with the heavy baggage of her past, moving on feels almost impossible.

When their two worlds crash, it’s like discovering a new way to breathe after skimming below the surface for so long, always on the verge of drowning. Until they’re pushed back into the depths of the ocean and they realize that maybe sinking into oblivion is the only way to live. Unless they give each other a chance.

Ellie and Rhylan both struggle with depression but everything changes for the better when these two lost souls meet. Ellie’s life is darkened by grief while Rhylan lives an empty Hollywood existence, unfulfilled and suffering each day. Their lives are dark and troubled before they meet and while their love is no magic cure, they’re so good for one another. This is angsty but sweet with beautiful, real characters. I received an ARC from Grey’s Promotions in exchange for an honest review
