When it’s later explained that Sebastian's dysfunction is from OCD at least I had some sort of reference point (??? ok, nah, not so much) for the off the wall quirkiness. I know people that suffer from OCD and I’m no therapist but whoa….this was cray-cray OCD. Jack Nicholson in As Good as it Gets comes to mind which was so sad and maddening that it was sometimes funny. Didn’t find any humor in Sebastian’s illness. And this was illness.
Lucky for Sebastian that beauty queen, reality star Skylar, his high school crush, is just the right amount of silly, immature innocence to handle Sebastian’s odd ways. There was something sweet in these two lonely souls finding each other but can’t say I really enjoyed it. Mostly just felt bad for poor ole screwed up Sebastian. Unusual read for the start of a series, can’t imagine where the author goes from here for bk 2.
The H in this one keeps to himself because he's struggling with OCD...until one day at the beach when he sees the girl he had a crush on in highschool. He knows he should stay away from her. What could she possibly see in a guy like him? What would he even have to offer a girl like her, except tears and sadness? He'd just mess up her life like he always does with women, so why even go there? But can he stay away?
This one deals with some serious, and real issues. You kind of get a glimpse at what the world is like for someone struggling with severe OCD. And what a relationship may deal with when you fall in love with someone who has the disorder.
Skylar is Sebastian's light in the darkness of his mind. She accepts him and all his idiosyncrasies. She loves him despite the extra work and headache that sometimes comes with being with him, because she sees him for the person he is. Not his disorder. As they get closer, and spend more time together, you come to see how she actually winds up helping to calm his mind at times by just being with him. Their chemistry together is off the charts. But can their relationship survive the thoughts raging inside his head?
In the beginning I found Skylar to be a little too much and a little too self involved, but as the story went on I loved her just as much as Sebastian. She never gave up on him and she kept them together multiple times without being a doormat. She was strong and fought for a love she believed in. And she fought for herself. Her growth throughout the story was fantastic. Sebastian struggled so hard, and it was at time heartbreaking to read his thoughts. You just want to reach in to the story and hug him and try to reassure him that everything would be ok.
I just loved them together and was rooting for them the entire time. The epilogue was the cutest and I can’t wait to see what’s next with the Nixon sisters!
Well edited. Read in the boxed set.
Skylar chased a dream until it blew up her life. Fame is not all it's cracked up to be. Back home to sort out her life, she sees a handsome stranger. Except he's not really a stranger. Sebastian and Skylar went to high school together. Then, thanks to misunderstood OCD and anxiety, Sebastian was largely ignored or insulted by his classmates. Now, he's a lawyer, still battling - but coping with - OCD and anxiety. Unfortunately, he has a failed engagement that makes him believe he can't have love. Until he meets Skylar again and begins to hope. Will Sebastian take a chance? Will Skylar have the patience to love him through his ups and downs?
I adored Sebastian. He so wanted love, but thought no one would be able to cope with his many quirks. Skylar found ways to help him and love him. A wonderful couple to read and cheer for. Enjoy!

Skylar and Sebastian - a failed wannabe actress / disgraced reality show small town girl + an OCD genius recluse of a hunk = a story that has you hooked!
Loved it and definitely recommend to others!
