Mackenzie Deeks is struggling. Outwardly she plays the tough guy and acts like being a young adult with an eating disorder is no big deal. Inside, she's crumbling.
Ever since her parents’ divorce, the only way she has been able to feel in control of her life is by purging the despair that has its grips on her and won't let go.
Tyler Redding knows when someone needs help - he's seen it before. This time, though, he's not going to take no for an answer. From the moment he first sets his sights on Mackenzie, he's unable to think of anyone else. But how can he focus on a football career when all he wants to do is date the most unassuming person he's ever met?
As their lives become intricately entwined, it becomes more than wishful thinking when Mackenzie and Tyler find each other again as adults. With successful careers, a beachside lifestyle and each other’s love to contend with, life should be pretty damn good. But just when they think they’ve found their wonderful kind of normal, their perfect world comes crashing down.
It’s going to take a lot to keep Mackenzie from succumbing to old habits, but Tyler thinks he might just be the one to save her for good. WARNING: Advised for audiences 17+years.

Sanctuary of Mine by S Pratt - Review
OMG – words fail me this book is so amazing!
This book is like none other I’ve read. It is a totally different romance story, dealing with a very different and tough subject.
This is a story of a young girl who was traumatised by something she overheard and punishes herself by not eating. This story explains in detail how she copes with this and why she does it to herself and how difficult it is for her to lead a “normal” life, how she deals with making friends and having a boyfriend. It is fantastic to read a book about these issues that so many people suffer with.
I think the subject was handled extremely well and it gave the reader an amazing insight into a taboo subject. Be prepared to have a tissue handy when reaching the end of the book!
S Pratts style of writing is full of emotion and written in a way that I could easily be a fly on the wall in the story and see everything playing out. It was so realistic!
She handled the subject with ease and didn’t soften the blow or ease us in gently. I am very interested in reading more of S Pratt’s book as I believe that she puts a piece of her heart and her soul into each book.
I felt like I was reading a Colleen Hoover book as S Pratt’s style is very similar.
I give this book 5 stars only because that is the most, but would give 10 if I could.
