Daylight Follows is a standalone new adult romance.
Direction and a sense of purpose for her life evaded Daniella Archer. She was in college, but her classes didn’t hold her interest. She had a boyfriend, but never got butterflies when he was near. Her two best friends were her lifelines, the ones who always stood by her. Then tragedy shattered her world and she sunk into a deep depression. She watched helplessly as the rainy sky mimicked her tears and the dark clouds, her mood.
Garrett Ramsey secretly loved Daniella throughout their high school years. When he moved away, he finally put those feelings behind him and moved on with his life, or so he thought. Just seeing Dani again brought all of the feelings he thought were long dead, straight to the surface again. She never saw him as more than a friend, so he didn’t tell her how he truly felt.
Two people, two paths, both missing something significant. Storms swirled all around and the blackness of night seemed to last forever. They dared to hope daylight would follow.

This is not my first book by Michelle Dare and it won't be my last! This was a book that I lost myself in and before I knew it I was finished.
Daniella is in a relationship and going to college. But, there's something still missing in her life. Before she can put her finger on it she gets a phone call nobody ever wants. One of her best friends was killed in a car accident.
Garrett moved after high school and never thought he'd be back. But, when his high school friend died he didn't think twice about going back. He was nervous to see Daniella. Garrett had been in love with her for as long as he knew her. Unfortunately she didn't see him that way.
When Garrett gets to town he learns that she isn't dealing with the loss of their friend well. She's not eating, sleeping or talking to anybody. Her boyfriend is smothering her. It's clear to him she just needs a friend. Somebody to just be there. Lend a shoulder to cry on, talk too or say nothing at all. Thats what he does. When he must leave to go back to work he lets her know he's there for her.
Daniella was glad to see Garrett after so many years. He was just what she needed. He made her feel things her boyfriend never did. She wasn't feeling him before she got depressed after loosing her friend. But, now between his smothering and his anger she does something she should've done awhile ago. Daniella dumps him.
When Daniella goes for a trip she ends up running into Garrett. Things force them to spend more and more time together. They get into a nice routine. While Garrett doesn't want Daniella to leave and she doesn't want to leave either.
There was nothing about Garrett that I didn't like. He really was the perfect guy. He was Daniella's friend in high school and was always there for her when she needed him. Now as an adult he loved her and even though he probably could've taken advantage of her mental state.He still continued to be there for her as a friend and help her before he thought of himself. He's truly the perfect guy.
My heart broke for Daniella. I cant imagine being lost and then loose my best friend. I was glad when she finally started doing things for herself that made her happy. I was even happier when she and Garrett gave into their feelings. They're perfect together.
Michelle wrote a beautiful story. The way she wrote Daniella's emotional state from worse, bad, better and good was fantastic. She definitely didn't rush anything or make light of it. I'm glad I bought this.
