Flutter by Olivia Evans.... review by Dawn

Dylan Walker has spent six years trying to move on from the loss of his girlfriend, Presley Cooper. Motivated by grief and the desire to do for others what he couldn’t do for her, he burns the candle at both ends to make it through medical school. After graduation he moves west, putting as much distance as possible between his past and his present.
Or so he thought.
Unknowingly, Dylan has been set on a path that will destroy everything he thought he knew. All the pain, all the grief, was all for nothing. With the help of an unexpected ally, Dylan must find the answers and save the girl he loves before it’s too late.
A second chance at love.
But first, he must find a way to make her remember her past. Remember him. Remember everything.

Olivia Evans is a new to me author and I am now a fan. Flutter is such a great story, there is no real build up making you wait to chapter after chapter, she dives right in. The story of Dylan and Presley is gut wrenching.  You can feel the love and loss of both collectively and separate. This struggle has propelled Dylan to enter the field of psychiatry. Thinking if he can help just one person it will ease his pain. Determined to make up for missing the signs Presley had to be showing, his mission is clear... Help prevent suicide. 
For Presley, I have to believe that Ms.Evans understood the care she had to take writing her. The tenderness, the guilt, the pain, the suffering... it was so believable. The loss she felt and then the abandonment she must have felt, she wanted help, she agreed to help, only to be taken advantage of. I hated her father and I still do. There is so much I would love to tell you about this story, but I simply can not, it would ruin it. This book will stick with me for a long time.
