I already told y’all that I want to share books that are about disability/chronic illness. This book is by Renee Dyer, an author who is living with the story she tells, even though Nick and Brenna are fictional characters.
I was quickly caught up in the story. Renee says she didn’t sugarcoat it–she wasn’t kidding. It had the truth of lived experience behind every word, and it was compelling. If Nick and Brenna had been my friends in real life, I wouldn’t have felt their pain much more than I did in this story.
This wasn’t Renee’s first book, and you can tell that she is not a one-trick pony. She can write romance that touches the heart and doesn’t deal with chronic illness, but because of her special connection to this story, it’s as if we see inside her heart in a special way.
For those who are sensitive, there is some sexual content in the book. However, it is not graphic. It’s handled in a way so that you know what happened, but it leaves specific details to the imagination.
I really hope that we meet Nick and Brenna again. I want to know more about them and see where their story goes.
For those who are interested, here is a link to my review on Amazon. I hope you check it out, because it’s well worth the $2.99 price on Kindle. I’ll read it again and probably again!
I received this book in exchange for an honest review, but I would buy it anyway and still probably will! As you see, 20% of proceeds go to Conquer Chiari until November 9!
