You know what sucks? Cancer. Cancer sucks.
Especially when it takes a young life. Like the life of my five year old son. You want to know what I have to say about that? Nothing. Absolutely nothing because I don’t have the drive anymore. There’s nothing left in me except emptiness. That much is obvious. I’ve lost my car, my career, and my apartment. At least I have my brother. Actually, I just have a place to stay because of my rich, single brother.
I’m struggling to find purpose again. After what life’s shown me it can do to a person, I really don’t care if I’m breathing anymore.
I am, but barely.
Then Jett Voss showed up and it’s like he’s an oxygen mask I don’t need or want.
She’s got no cares left in the world and I’m determined to resuscitate her heart.
It was a one-night stand that connected us. She only had one want that night, and I took care of it. I’m not stopping there though. I may have not known her before her heartbreak, but I know there’s life inside of her still.
I will find it.
That means I need to stick around town for a while. I guess I don’t have many other options. I’ve just been forced to run a company I never wanted and I’m a little bitter about it. The circumstances of why this fell into my lap makes it the hardest. Death is a cruel reality. My bike shop, occasionally the open road, not answering to anyone… this is the life I was living and wanted.
It’s insane what one look, one night, one person can change in you.
This was my first book by author M. Piper, but it won’t be my last! I loved her writing style, her characters, the plot and most of all the attention to detail. The author put her heart and soul into this book and the reader can tell! You can feel her emotions, the emotions of the characters and the research that the author put into the story.
This story centers around death…it’s sad to say, but it takes losing someone to bring out the emotions of others. It is a story that shows that death isn’t always the end, that it’s not always the most final thing, but that people can recover. It’s a story with an underlying hope that gives the reader insight.
Lauren and Jett both have had a tragedy struck them and they are not able to make it past without the help of one another. The reader laughs, cries and yells while at the same time they root for them to work it out and start again. It is isn’t about letting go, but about learning how to make a new normal, a new life, one in which they can move on together. This book has elements of mystery, romance, suspense and at times just plain heartbreak. It grabs the readers attention and never lets it waiver.
I am already trying to decide what book I should read next by this author – each one looks and sounds amazing!
