I wasn't prepared to hear those words. Neither was my loving husband, family or friends. And none of us were prepared for what life had in store after they were spoken.
I should have seen the signs all around me. I should have paid attention to the people who supposedly loved me, the people who I'd always trusted. But I was blind to what was going on. The effects on my flourishing career, passionate marriage and carefree lifestyle would be insurmountable.
It was time to take control of my life and the overwhelming chaos. Time to make the choices that were right for me. Right for my future. The future I hadn't planned on.
My life didn't stop when I heard those four little words . . . it was only just beginning
Not your typical review
This review is not going to be a regurgitation of the story, plot summary, character analysis. This is a review of why I think you should read this and not shy away. I am going to be honest. This book appeared on my “Recommended for You”. I read the book summary: “You. Have. Breast. Cancer.” Oh heck no – not going to read. I want my romance with steam, sexy, seductive, angsty females, alpha males. I do not want to deal with real life. I’ve been there; done breast cancer. Nope. Not. Going. There. The novel will handle the subject trite or clichéd. Or worse, have the characters do things that I fought and hated. No. Nope. Not interested.
Then a friend gifted me a copy and asked me to give it a try.
I am so glad I did. It’s well worth the time.
Let’s cover the basic reviewer’s questions. Were the characters credible? Yes, all characters main and minor were completely authentic and believable. Did the main characters run into problems? Breast Cancer- given. A plot twist that is not worn or thrown in for a wow. A wholly realistic journey. Who was your favorite character? Why? Hell, I have to pick one. We all have a little bit in us or around us of Victoria, Bobbie Jo, Jen and Dana. Enough said. Could you relate to any of the characters in the story? Unfortunately, too easily. Was it hard to think about again? Yes. Was I glad I did? Yes. Because Victoria was such an amazing, strong character I fell in love with. If I could change something, what would it be? Okay, can’t say without giving away the story. But yes, some of the stuff in Victoria’s journey, not particularly happy that had to happen. But, I know that stuff does.
Who do I recommend this to? Everyone who likes anything in this genre. It’s loving, it’s heart breaking, it’s steamy, it’s great girl power, and it’s just a beautiful ride.
