I had a perfect life. Schoolteacher. Married to my high school sweetheart. Little starter house that we called charming but was really just old. All I needed was the two-point-five kids and I’d be living my perfect dream. Then my husband died.
After the funeral, I had a breakdown that lasted for a month…or twelve. But now I’m reemerging, healing, finding my way. It’s time to learn who I am now, and whether or not I can fix a leaky sink. And by my side, the entire time, is my husband’s best friend, Liam. The single dad knows a thing or two about personal struggles, and about how to replace faucets.
With Liam, I feel alive again. Confident. Capable. Liam has become my best friend too. Except if my parents, my in-laws, and the rest of the town had any say, I’d stay far away from him and his bad boy reputation.
How do I admit to them what’s so hard to admit to myself? That I’m starting to look at him like he’s more than a friend. That the heat in his eyes when he looks at me is far beyond friendly. That like it or not, Liam makes me feel whole again.
📖This is my first Marie Johnston book and I really enjoyed it! The love, angst and heartbreak are so beautifully written and spoken through these characters. Liam is a hard working single father who’s had his share of heartache. He’s a good man who takes care of others and is a talented artist. Kennedy is broken - heartbroken, physically and mentally broken. She has suffered an immense loss. She is trying to move forward and her husbands best friend is helping her along. Liam and Kennedy’s friendship is so beautiful and loving…but can it stand the test of time? Marie writes about grief, mourning and finding your way back in such a loving and respectful way. You will be filled with emotions while reading this story. 🎧The audiobooks is fantastic. Lee Daniels and Tyler Darby execute a beautiful narration of Make Me Whole. The emotions for both characters, from each narrator, is masterfully delivered with tender and soothing voices. Each event the characters experience is delivered with the right tone and emotion. This is my first audiobook from Lee and Tyler - I look forward to listening to more of their books. Congratulations Marie, Lee and Tyler on a beautiful book. I received a complimentary copy and I am leaving my honest review.
Make Me Whole
Fantastic book that’s a must read. Loved it! ❤️❤️📚👍
A sweet love story
The characters came to life. Some were a bit flat and lacked development, but they weren’t the important ones. The story-line was sweet with the requisite HEA. Over all it was a good read.
