What's Left of Me

What's Left of Me by: Amanda Maxlyn

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.

Who Picked This? Book blog was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Manda's 5 Star Review:

Aundrea McCall has been fighting for her life for the past few years. Determined to stay strong and not give up Aundrea has decided to concentrate on the now and to forget about relationships or anything that might require a future she is unsure of. After receiving her latest diagnosis she moves in with her sister to start treatment. After a crazy night out with the girls leads to a hot one night stand with the handsome stranger Parker, Aundrea readies herself for what may be her toughest battle yet. Only problem is one night with Parker may not have been enough.

What an amazing book!! I haven't given a 5 star review in a while and was more than happy to give this book that rating. The characters are amazing and the story is so beautifully written. You will absolutely LOVE Parker. He is the perfect BBF and you will get caught up in Aundrea's emotional journey. I read this book in one afternoon. I could not put it down and the end completely blew my mind. In order for me to give a book a 5 star it has to stay with me after I have finished it and this book definitely did that. It will have you running through all your emotions and saying what the heck just happened. I could not wait to tell my blog partner about this book and recommend it to my friends, Really a fantastic job Amanda Maxlyn. You have a fan and I can't wait to read more from you!

Mag's 5 Star Review:

Aundrea has cancer. She hasn’t let it beat her during the four years it’s been in her life and she isn’t planning on letting it win this time. Finding out the best form of treatment is located in a different city where she will have to up route her whole life to go and get treated left her with her sister and brother in law no other family or friends. Facing her upcoming treatments Aundrea goes out to have some fun and winds up meeting Parker, a gorgeous, tanned, toned blue-eyed beauty. One thing leads to another, and they share one amazing night together. Before things could get weird she runs the next morning. Little did she know fate had other options in store for her. 

I truly loved this book. I read it in one sitting and couldn’t put it down. Aundrea is fiercely strong and has this will power that keeps her going. The relationship between Parker and Aundrea was simply beautiful. I laughed in this book and I cried like a baby. I wish I could read it all over again just to feel those emotions for the first time again. It was that good. Amanda had shocked me and sent on a very emotional ride. I look forward to reading more from her. Grab a box of tissues, a bottle of wine, box of chocolates whatever your comfort is and go read this book!!
