Jodi Michaels has life figured out: she owns her business, has a relationship and two great kids. She just hadn’t counted on someone like Beth Bellamy coming along to shake up her world. When Beth makes Jodi wonder if really loving someone and having someone love you in return is what life is all about, her perfect picture begins to crumble.
Beth has never considered herself anything but straight, and all her focus has been on raising her daughter. When she meets Jodi, she can’t deny her attraction. Now all her ideas about what she should do and who she should love are turned inside out.
Jodi and Beth have a love worth fighting for, but when illness threatens Jodi’s life, the battle might be beyond their control. Beth vows to stand by Jodi’s side, but the biggest problem is, Jodi won’t let her.
This book bucks the typical romance formula, and I like it. The story is delivered through a dual, first person point of view between the two main characters, and begins with a flashback to when the two met. It progresses over several years through their relationship beginning as friends then developing deeper feelings all the while being kept apart while navigating their own unhappy relationships and life. Just when I thought they would see some happiness, illness strikes.
I couldn’t put the book down, even if I tried. I liked everything about it. It was truly unique, and really enjoyable. This is the type of book where I want to thank the author for writing it.
