A Chemically Imbalanced Romance:
Confined to the third floor of an old psychiatric ward located in a hospital on the verge of shutting down, Mason Phillips walks the same hall alongside others that have afflictions that range from obsessive compulsive disorder to schizophrenia. Based on the belief that he does not need help for what ails him mentally, he finds solace in a young woman that sleeps in the room across the hall.
Enamored with a woman that he knows nothing about, Mason is faced to converse with other patients about their addictions and phobias as he tries to come to terms with his past and understand others.
Sometimes the people that seem different can be the ones that understand the most.
Wow, what a phenomenal story about addictions and other afflictions. This book actually had me addicted. I had to know was more about Mason and the other characters he came in contact with. It was an amazing journey through many lives that I learned about throughout the entire story. I loved how everything revolved through the eyes of Mason and that he believed he didn’t have a problem and shouldn’t be there. It’s amazing how he found comfort and feelings for his neighbor, because at first he seemed to not want anyone near him. This is a spectacular story full of tough subjects that most people fear to even touch or talk about.
The story-line is so vivid in my head after a couple of months of finishing this book. The scenes in the book felt as if I was watching a movie about the characters and their thoughts, especially Mason’s and what I experienced through his eyes. The story flows really well and keeps you wanting to read it all at once. I absolutely love this author’s work and this is by far my favorite story of his yet.
The cover is amazing too. I love the colors and how it hits the nail on the head with the story and Mason. It’s a great story that I would recommend to all adults. I give this book a 5 book review and beyond.
The author provided me with a digital ARC copy of the book for review purposes only. No remuneration was exchanged.
