Title: This Close to Okay
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance - Mental Health
Author: Leesa Cross-Smith
On a rainy October night in Kentucky, recently divorced therapist Tallie Clark is on her way home from work when she spots a man precariously standing on the side of a bridge. Without a second thought, Tallie pulls over and jumps out of the car into the pouring rain. She convinces the man to join her for a cup of coffee, and he eventually agrees to come back to her house, where he finally shares his name: Emmett. 

Over the course of the emotionally charged weekend that follows, Tallie makes it her mission to provide a safe space for Emmett, though she hesitates to confess that this is also her day job. But what she doesn't realize is that he's not the only one who needs healing -- and she's not the only one with secrets.

Alternating between Tallie and Emmett's perspectives as they inch closer to the truth of what brought Emmett to the bridge's edge -- as well as the hard truths Tallie has been grappling with in her own life -- This Close to Okay is a vibrant, powerful story of two strangers brought together by wild chance at the moment they needed each other most.

When Tallie stops Emmett from jumping off a bridge, their relationship develops in many ways. This book deals with depression and PTSD in such an amazing way. 

This book is heartbreakingly beautiful! I loved every page of this amazing story! I cried my eyes out several times but I can’t recommend this story enough. I knew right away this was a special book. It packs a punch from the get go! Please do yourself a favor and read this beautiful story! 

And to those who need to hear it, YOU MATTER! YOU ARE LOVED!! Don’t ever be afraid to reach out to someone for help. 

This is a solid 5/5 stars from me.
