BLURB

THE DEEPEST HEARTACHE IS THE ONE YOU DON’T SEE COMING.

Golden couple, Sawyer and Quinn Denali, have an amazing love story. A match in every way, their happiness is evident to all who spend time with them. The arrival of twin baby girls completes their picture-perfect family.

When Quinn has the opportunity to help others on a two-week volunteer trip, she reluctantly leaves her family, knowing a short break from the demands of motherhood will be good for her. She doesn’t expect the trip to change her life forever. But it does. It changes everything.

Struggling from day to day, the young family moves forward, finding happiness . . . and love.

But fate isn’t done mixing things up in their lives. When an unexpected event leaves them all reeling, the unspoken question rings loudly and can’t be ignored: “What happens now?”

A Me and You Thing is a novel that explores the strength of enduring love and friendship.

My Review

Decadent3This heart-tugging romance blew me away. It’s an emotional roller-coaster ride of epic proportions…so prepare yourself. My heart soared up into the heavens, then was dragged into the bitter dregs of hell, like being dragged behind a pickup truck for a mile or so. Ouch! But I got my happy (actually, glorious!) ending, so I loved it. The ending was so much more fulfilling because of what my heart went through to get there. This story is unique and refreshing—not your run-of-the-mill, predictable romance that doesn’t stick with you when you finish. Nope! This one’s made of super glue, and will stick in your heart forevermore.

I loved Saywer and Quinn. I mean…love-loved them! They’re amazing characters. Sawyer—a book boyfriend from your most romantic dreams—and Quinn is the biggest sweetheart ever! I loved their perfect fairy tale romance. And what they had to go through to keep it was intense, heart-wrenching agony at times, but so worth it. This book scared me for a while. When I thought I knew what would happen, I’d start having heart palpitations and say, “No! Don’t do it! Nooooooo!” But the end result was so amazing. All I can think is, “This is the best book EVER!”

Taylor Dean is beyond talented. Read her note at the end to see why she wrote this book. It gave me valuable insight, which I appreciated. This story is intense and shows the whole spectrum of the human heart and what lengths it will go to for love (both good and bad), but it’s so worth the roller-coaster ride. If you want a light, fluffy romance, skip this book. But if you want a fulfilling heart journey of epic greatness, give it a shot. You won’t be disappointed.

Happy Reading.

Creating Your Forever Family

Creating Your Forever Family BannerThis isn’t my normal romance review. In fact, it’s not a romance at all. I like to think of Creating Your Forever Family by Rachel Sullivan as the How-To self-help manual for how characters in books and real life couples find and keep their happily-ever-afters romance readers read and dream about. Once the hero and heroine find each other and the book ends with them happily together, what comes next? How do they keep from divorcing or being miserable a few years down the road when real life problems and challenges smack them in the face? Continue reading
