RECOVERED: 
A full length romance novel by Jay Crownover. In this we meet ‘Cable McCaffrey & Affton’ Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’

Jay has given us a little bit of herself in this book, because cable is loosely based on a real person when she was younger, the boy who taught her about love and loss, her first crush, her first love, her first heartbreak, a truly poignant story that touched me so deep within. It’s not very often that you stumble across a book like this one, unique, un-put-downable, an emotional, intense, real life story that had me in it’s grip from the very first page. 

When Affton was first aware of Cable it wasn’t with lust, or attraction she detested him, despised him, ignored him, he was a year ahead of her in school, the poor little rich boy that had the whole township wrapped around his little fingers. He was privileged, he was beloved. He was the closest the township had to royalty, and all the rest were peasants who merely existed in his mighty kingdom. 

The main reason I never joined Cable James McCaffrey's fan club was that he was not only a user of people, but also used that which was scary and risky. He used in the literal sense 

Affton is the type of girl who doesn't like to bring attention to herself, someone that likes to hide in the shadows and not be seen, it's where she's most comfortable, most think she's an ice queen, untouchable, they couldn't be more wrong. It just takes one certain boy down the track to wake her up. 

It was during Affton's freshman year that she noticed a major change in Cable, his appearance changed from healthy and good-looking to gaunt and homeless looking, his mood swings were becoming erratic, dangerous and out of control. But no one else seemed to notice the change in him..Only Affton. 

Someone had to save him before it was to late. Affton knew first hand what it was like to lose a loved one under the influence of drugs. So she could see the signs of a user. 

Addiction takes and takes and keeps on taking. It's the most greedy and selfish thing in the entire world. 

Taking matters into her own hands Affton sends Cable's mother an anonymous email, warning her that her son needed an intervention as he was on a slippery slope of no return unless someone stepped in and saved him. 

That proved too late, because not so long after that letter was sent, Cable never returned to school. He'd gotten behind the wheel whilst under the influence and was incarcerated for eighteen months and when released straight into a sober living facility. 

The day after her high school graduation she was approached by none other than Cable's mother demanding, threatening, that she move into the summer vacational home that Cable is staying in and become his keeper over the summer vacation making making sure he stays clean. 

Being in such close living quarters it doesn't take long for Affton's walls to come tumbling down, these two had more in common than they even realised. From friends to lovers, but what happens when the summer is over and Affton goes away to University? 

How could this not be 5 stars! What an amazing journey this took me on, I feel like I've been pulled through a hedge backwards. This was intoxicating, incredible, indescribable with all the feels, the highs and lows, the bittersweet ending, the undeniable love these two felt, the angst, heartbreak, addiction that wanted to keep him in his grasp. God this was good!!
It was hate at first sight...

Affton

I hated Cable James McCaffrey.

He was entitled, spoiled, a user…and an addict.

He was out of control and didn’t bother trying to hide it.

He had everything anyone could want but still seemed miserable and lost.

Every move he made, every mistake he stumbled his way through, rubbed me the wrong way. However, I couldn’t stop myself from trying to save him from himself when no one else would. In the sweltering heat of the summer, Cable taught me that having it all means nothing if you can’t have the one thing you want more than anything else.


Cable

I was obsessed with Affton Reed.

She was rigid, uptight, and no fun. There was something about her innate goodness that called to me.

She acted like she was above all the normal faults and failures that clung to the rest of us like the scent of smoke after a fire.

I was infatuated with her, but that didn’t stop me from acting like she didn’t exist.

In the scorching heat of summer, Affton taught me that there is always a way back from the brink of despair. She showed me that the trick to having it all was realizing that it was already there, in my hands. All I had to do was hold onto it.

The road to recovery is full of twists and turns no matter who is in the driver’s seat.
