Camden Walker: Apartment 8C by Aly Stiles


Release Date: 06.23.2021



After surviving severe trauma, Camden Walker has spent his life being trapped by labels. Now, at age twenty-seven, he’s fine being the gifted artist not wired for a world that’s left him scarred. All he wants is to break free and find the beauty that’s been stolen from him.

Painfully ordinary.

Olivia Price is used to being invisible and living in the shadow of her younger sibling. The fact that Olivia is secretly in love with her sister’s boyfriend is just another example of craving what Claire takes for granted.

But when Claire dumps Camden without a thought, Olivia can’t let go of the haunted green eyes she’s loved for so long—especially when they finally see her too.

Because maybe it takes the one not wired for this world to appreciate the one who’s been ignored by it.

And maybe it takes the only person who’s ever understood the wounded artist to show him he’s as radiant as his art.


Olivia Price was attracted to her younger sister's boyfriend since their first encounter, so when Claire breaks up with Camden leaving him alone on the street with his few possessions she decides to be his friend. Camden Walker is an artist, who doesn't like to talk about himself and his past. He has never had a friend so he doesn't know how to be a good friend with Olivia but it seems they share a connection. Will Olivia be able to breach in Camden's defenses? Or will she be the latest in a long line of people that betray him?

I loved Olivia, she is selfless and resilient wanting to help Camden to get a better life, even if doing that could break her own heart. Camden is a survivor and he only knows how to live in the present, going on one day at time trying to create his next perfect piece of art.
I liked how their journey is not smooth because they are too different and their confrontations and the slow burn make it more real.

I liked this story, it was devastating but written icredibly well by Aly Stiles, the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I wasn't able to empathize with Camden in a very deep level but I still recommend to read it and to meet this very criptic man.
