★ SYNOPSIS ★
Danny and Liv are back…
Danny loves Liv. He knows he loves her more than she loves him because she ran without a word when she saw their future mapped out before her. He knows he will never love anyone like he loved her and this time he doesn’t think he can move on.
Liv loves Danny. She knows she loves him more than he loves her because he broke her heart in the worst possible way, right when things were falling into place. She knows she will never love anyone like she loves him and this time she doesn’t think she can move on.
They needed a second chance because they just weren’t ready for their first, but when events changed everything between them, they discovered they were just human after all. Now Liv and Danny have to find a way to survive being hurt by each other.
They doubted, they underestimated and they did believe the worst, but only because they were too young the first time and too vulnerable the second time. But now they have changed and if they are not the same, surely things can only turn out differently?

★ MY REVIEW ★
Oh boy, where do I even start. Still Human is the second book in the Just Human series by Kerry Heavens. I would not recommend reading this book as a standalone. I think a lot would get lost in translation if you tried to. Not to mention it would be a total disservice to yourself. So that being said, go back now and read Just Human before you crawl into Still Human and set up camp like I did. You’ll also find my review of Just Human, here.
Kerry Heavens has done it yet again. I was a bit worried and I’ll admit scared at how Danny and Liv’s story was going to end. I’m more than pleased to tell you that it’s a full HEA with no cliffhangers this time around. In fact, this book had me sobbing extremely happy tears for the couple. I’m not going to go into extreme details about this pair because you can read that in my review of Just Human. What I am going to focus on in this review and try not to give spoilers, is the bones of this book itself.
Sometimes, even second chances don’t work. When you read the end of Just Human, and are sitting there going, “Wait, what!?” and are ready to dive into Still Human, you’ll realize that this couple needs a third chance. Instead of trying to solve thins and figure out what went wrong, it implodes. Both Danny and Liv think the other just doesn’t love them.
Insecurities run rampant and it is one of the first hurdles these two need to tackle. Still Human is a book about being just that… Human. Having to overcome your own insecurities and doubts and just let yourself be loved. In taking chances that the person you give your heart to is going to cherish it, and keep you grounded, not hurt you. Once things settle between Danny and Liv, they decide to try again.
The relationship between the main characters, to me, is more real than fantasy due to this. When I say some the writing is extremely well done, I can’t stress that enough. You get sooo many feels from this couple. You at times want to smack their heads together, and at other times jump up and down for them.
Still Human is a five star book for me. I loved every single thing about it, I loved the continuation of Danny and Liv’s story. I love how the story itself was handled. Being a second book in a series about a couple that had such a great first book, it made this review a bit difficult… not because of the book, but because of the content. If I were to even hint at certain things, you’d know how it turned out. So what I would recommend, is that you read both these books. 😀 Not even going to joke, if Kerry Heavens books were turned into movies, they’d go on my shelf next to my Nicholas Sparks movies and books. I know for sure they are going on my favorites shelf.
