The Power of Touch: A Review of K. Webster’s “Apartment 2B”

Goodreads.com Description: “Sidney has a rough life. Her mom is incredibly abusive both mentally and physically. One day, she’s awarded the escape she’s always wanted and thrust into a world she barely understands. Each day is a struggle to feel human and not terrified of everything around her. Sidney has rules. Routines. Structure. It’s the only way she can cope. When a handsome, yet mysterious stranger inserts himself into her life, Sidney begins to come apart at the seams. She’s having trouble sticking to her habits and it’s threatening to shred any hope of a normal life to pieces. Will this stranger help her in ways no other person can, or will things get worse for her? He comes with his own set of problems and secrets he’s unwilling to share. Will they work together through the mess of their pasts or will they get caught up enabling each other? Will their toxic relationship ultimately be destined for demise?”

A truly touching love story!

I really enjoyed K. Webster’s “Apartment 2B”. I found it to be a well-written tale about a young woman’s awakening. After years of abuse she learned to love herself and others.

The characters were well-developed. I especially loved the main character, Sydney. She was amazingly strong for someone who had become numb. With the love of a good man, she overcomes so much. I was so grateful for the character of Lane. She truly needed him in her life.

“Apartment 2B” isn’t just your average romance novel. It deals with mental illness as well. Webster did an impressive job delivering a character who could have been the poster child for insanity. Although it wasn’t divulged in the book, I suspect Momma had issues with Sydney because she looked so much like her father. Momma wanted to punish the man for leaving her. Sydney became her substitute. If it hadn’t been for Liam and Lane, Sydney would have been locked away within herself–a true victim of mental illness.

“Apartment 2B” was my first read from K. Webster. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading more by her.
