Book Talk Review; What's Left of Me

 What's Left of Me by Amanda Maxlyn is a Beautiful Heart-touching Read!

 
 Life works in mysterious ways.

 Four years ago I became known as the girl with cancer.

 I refuse to cry.

 And I refuse to give in.

 A relationship with a man is the last thing I’m looking for right now, but one night with Parker changes everything. He is persistent, and he knows what he wants. Me.

 He doesn’t treat me like I’m fragile.

 But he doesn’t know, and I’m not ready to tell him.

 What if it changes everything?

 Tragedy found me when I was seventeen.

 Love found me when I was twenty-one.

 My name is Aundrea McCall, and this is my journey.

 This book is one that will make you cry. Period. 
 And it's not even because of what you think will make you cry. It's the feels that this book has, it's the beautiful way that it was written that will have you crying. It's the overall feel of this book, the storyline, everything about this book is beautiful and heart-touching. 
 I love Aundrea, I love the strength she has, even when it feels like too much she has been through so much and yet she still loves. She still hopes. 
 Aundrea, may not think she is strong but she is. She may hate the person she has become because she is sick. She may hate the way that her body looks, she may hate every treatment and every medication they give her.  She may hate how it seems that her sickness controls her, controls the way her family is around her. But that doesn't stop her. That doesn't stop her from loving her family and wanting to spare them the pain, that doesn't stop her from wanting the life she could have. That doesn't stop her from falling for Parker.

 I think that a lot of the reason that I love Aundrea is because she is her person. She doesn't let her cancer define her-no matter how it may tear her down or what happens to her. That was what I got from her. 

 Yes, she hides herself from Parker, but I understand why she did that. I think this book touched something deep inside me that no other book has done before. I don't know if it's because of the storyline, or the characters or what they have to go through. But I really felt this book. 

 Parker is like the best. He's sweet and kind, and loving, and he's hot of course. 

 I love Aundrea and Parker's relationship. Even though Aundrea kept her secret for so long it doesn't change how I feel about their relationship and it doesn't change how Parker feels about them or her. 

 Amanda is an amazing writer and I can't wait to get more of Aundrea and Parker in What's Left of Us. I am excited to see what happens next in their story. 

 The end though. The end killed me. I lived in my blissed little bubble there for a minute until Amanda gave me a heart attack with her ending. Of course it wasn't like it was assumed I cried big fat ugly tears there though. 

 Those authors who go and make you have one big ugly cry are the authors that know how to write. Those are the authors who connect with their stories and their characters and their readers. Those are the authors I love to read because to be able to connect with a book so much that it breaks your heart and you are able to ugly cry like that is the best. 

 While there are many things in this book that will break your heart and make you cry, there are also things that make you feel and that is important. When you can feel a book. Best. Fucking. Thing. Ever. Ever.

 I felt this book. I loved this book. 

 Amanda is one of the newest Authors on my favorites list. Her style is so amazing, it flows and it connects. This book is one that I will enjoy again. This story is one that will stay with me forever.
