Precious by Lily Lamb

Review

Reviewed By: Josh Dale

5/5

This book is simply amazing, though it is a romance it is also a psychological thriller-ish.

We have Scott that has an unhealthy attraction to Dillon who visits the building where Scott works, to see a counsellor.

Scott does the usual stalker type actions and eventually he gets to meet Dillon.

Dillon is a young man who is desperate for some one to show him affection and love. His parents only want him around when they attend functions.

Dillon and Scott get off to a bumpy start, but each feels the connection to the other, initially things seem to be heading in the right direction, but they are both wary of one another.

Then things turn dark when Dillon turns the table on Scott. Unbeknown to Dillon Scott has mental health problems. He hears voices as well as suffers paranoia. Also, Scott has recently stopped taking his medication.

So, after the tables are turned things start spiralling out of control and get darker. I am not going to spoil the story by telling you what events happen.

But what I can tell you is that Lilly has done an amazing job of showing us what is going on inside Scotts head. And how Dillon reacts to the events.

The Emotions of both characters are so raw, that I felt I was the characters. Like Dillon you feel like he should run a mile and never look back. But it is funny what love can make us do.

I especially liked the way Lilly showed us Scott’s internal battle with the chip as he calls the voices. And how he battled with himself to try and keep Dillon safe.

The characters are like chalk and cheese on the service, Dillon a rich kid that has an easy life, and Scott the rugged outdoor survivor kind of guy. But when you take a deeper look, they both are looking for affection and love, and to matter to someone.

At the start of the story I just thought Scott was a bit obsessive, oh boy I was so wrong. We are on such a dark bumpy journey that could end in so many ways.

The author has done an amazing job of portraying Scott’s mental health issues in a non-judgemental way. And the way Dillon steps up when needed, throws his comfortable life aside and surprises himself as he becomes independent whilst hoping he can somehow reach out and get Scott the help he needs.
