In a powerful romance hailed as “heartbreaking, real, and breathtakingly beautiful” by Stacey Lynn, New York Timesbestselling author A. Meredith Walters tells the story of a troubled young woman and the unforgettable guy who teaches her to live—and love—to the fullest.
She’s waiting to die. . . . Corin Thompson is paralyzed by her obsession with mortality. Having lost both of her parents, she is terrified by the idea that she too will die young, and she loses control at any sign of illness. But when Corin connects with someone who has survived a very real brush with death, she begins to see the world in a whole new way.
He’s learning to live. . . . As Corin struggles under the weight of her neuroses, Beckett Kingsley is attempting to rebuild a life that feels all too temporary. With the ever-present threat of heart failure never far from his mind, he just wants to make the most of whatever time he has left. And that means pursuing the girl he never expected to find.
Together, Corin and Beckett finally learn to let go of their fears and take solace in everyday pleasures. Who knows what the future holds? After all, nothing lasts forever—the only promise they have is right now.
Get your tissues!!
Great story about real life, fear and grief.
It's about love, healing and learning to live.
Corin is a trip! She's quirky and silly but at the same time is suffering from a traumatic experience.
She's a hypochondriac. She has panic attacks. She's afraid of death.
She also has verbal diarrhea and is a tad socially awkward. What's not to love, right?
Then there's Beckett! Oh how I love Beckett!! He is amazing and wonderful. I felt for him.
How does one go from being a super active, sports junkie to a man plagued with imminent death?
These two don't seem like they match. She's waiting to die and he's fighting to live!
But they each bring out something in the other that that person desperately needs.
I don't want you thinking this book is just about dying and crying. There is that, yes, but these characters form an instant bond. A strange connection that at times had me laughing out loud. Yes, later it had me crying my eyes out... but there's so much silliness and funny banter that it evens the other out.
This book has such a powerful message and one we all should learn from.
And that message is wrapped around the adorable love story of Corin and Beckett!
