Book Summary

Imagine what life would be like if panic ruled your world at the mere thought of going to bed at night.
For as long as he can remember, Finnley Hollins has been crippled by his extreme phobia of sleep. Every night is a battle, and every morning isn’t without consequences. The root cause is something he’s ashamed to admit to anyone. It’s his war, and he will fight it alone.
When an unexpected turn of events lands the stunningly gorgeous Aven Woods at Finnley’s place of business, his life gets turned upside down.
All it would take is one night together for his secret to be exposed. Finnley wasn’t prepared to fall in love. More so, he wasn’t prepared for his phobia to completely consume his life. Not only is it affecting his job and his relationship, but now it’s affecting his health. What will it take for Finnley to finally admit he needs help?

    I’m absolutely exhausted from reading this story - no pun intended. I guess that means the author did a spectacular job, because I was right there with the characters, every step of the way, feeling every single anxious, distressing, debilitating moment of their emotional, mental and physical journeys.

    Somniphobia (a fear of sleep) is a disorder I knew zilch about prior to reading about Finnley’s horrific struggles. I felt so bad for the guy and just wanted to dive into his story to give him a hug and tell him everything would be okay- but thankfully that’s what darling, immensely supportive Aven was for. *swoon*

    Sympathising, even just broadly speaking, with some of Finnley’s feelings of anxiety, hopelessness, and never ending exhaustion is something I related to all too well (battling my own life-impacting chronic illness for the better part of the last decade). Not getting a good night's sleep and not feeling rested even when I do sleep, is something I’m all too familiar with, so imagining those often debilitating feelings paired with Finnley’s absolute terror at the mere notion of sleep was enough to make me consider that his phobia may just be one of the worst ones imaginable.

    This was definitely an angst-y story of the highest order, at least for me, but the love story between Finnley and Aven certainly helped balance out the intense mood of the piece with lots of romance, passion, tenderness, care, and never ending emotional support shared between these two very raw and very real characters.

    Owl's Slumber was eye opening and affecting, for sure, so kudos to the author for impressively and authentically representing the day-to-day struggles of someone fighting chronic illness.

    This was my first time reading a story by James but you can god damn bet I’ll be reading more from her in the (very near) future. I daresay a new reading obsession may have just begun! <3
