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.

As always a thank you goes out to Netgalley and Random House Loveswept for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
I won’t even lie this book broke my heart and made me cry most of the way through. There are a few reasons for this one of them is my hearts broke for the characters, as one really dealing with so much she thinks she is dying while one is actually has a heart condition and can die at any moment. Now the other reason it broke my heart, because is just as I was reading this story a friend of mine was dealing with his wife having this exact same condition and dealing with some issues from having had the pace maker put in that is supposed to help her extend her life and helps support her heart. So as you can see it was very close to my heart (pun not intended) and made it a lot more real for me. I was happy to see that Beckett is able to help Corin see how things could be different if she just lets love in. How things aren’t as dire as she thinks they are. Another thing with this book is the anxiety that Corin deals with was also very heart breaking.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you… TISSUES are needed.
I give this book 5 heart wrenching kisses…
Happy Reading… Adri
