You'll use many tissues throughout reading and will be moved a lot in some scenes.
I really liked reading and the heroes are wonderful and you'll be rooting for them.
I highly recommend!

Today I found myself in the rare situation of having nothing I absolutely had to get done this afternoon. I have been reading this book for the past week and have been enjoying it but wasn't making great progress with just a few minutes of time here and there. It was noon and lunch time and I decided I would read while eating lunch. 5 hours later the sun was setting and I finally got off the couch after having finished this book.

Ok, this is a tear jerker. The subject is the relationship struggles of a couple whos child died in utero just before birth. The break down of the marriage and the depression involved. It was well written and shows without getting maudalin the inability to move forward in your life after the death of a child. Or your desire to move on.
That said this is also a love story with a hea ending and I didn't start sniffling until 50% so don't put it down cause you might cry.

DNF at 96% this h was too weak imo (not because of what she went through, I thought she was really brave and admired her for that) but this girl accepted the H after he left her and went to take care of his pregnant ex wife. Hell no.

Rec’d on FB, and available on KU, I was shocked that it opened at 98%, as I had zero memory of the story, but as soon as I started reading I remembered most of the story.

Very emotional and sweet story. Most of the characters were sweet, the villain was OTT, but that’s the point. It was close to 4 stars, but plot twist in the final 25% felt forced and unnecessary.

Be prepared to cry.

As this book has been summarized by other readers, I will just give my impression on what I read.

Admission, I read every word up until maybe when I got to around the 36% mark and from that point on I started skimming. The pacing of this story is very, very slow. You know that Chloe has been suffering with depression and, I don't want to say OCD tendencies, but she is very obsessive about keeping her house nice and tidy because it was the one aspect of her life she could control. Her behaviors w

Taylor Dean books are one of my guilty pleasures. As soon as I saw this book was out, I went and bought it. It was an emotion filled book that I was caught up in from beginning to end. This is something I've come to expect from Taylor Dean. It's why I keep coming back to read more. Taylor knows how to make a story into an experience for the reader. ...more

An Emotionally Gripping Story

I’m not even sure where to bring with this review. There was so much about this book, this story, that I loved. It was such an emotional roller coaster and I couldn’t put it down. I cried for these characters whose experiences were so very real, and I cheered for their successes. I loved the sweet and clean romance that blossomed between the two main characters. The story was so very unique- with lots of twists and turns. Grief isn’t something you can turn on or off

I think I have loved every Taylor Dean book I've read! They all deal with different issues and they are all well-written. This book was about grief and loss and second chances. I had never heard of Trisomy 18; I loved the quiet strength of Chloe as she dealt with the grief and pain and learning to move forward and find happiness again.

“Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned. Sometimes life is happy, fun and filled with laughter. But sometimes life is hard and filled with trials. Sometimes life knocks us down and it’s really hard to get back up again.” (e-ARC, I'm With You).

Dean has managed to write yet another story that pulls at heart strings on many levels. She writes about the hard parts of life…the parts of life that knock us down. She writes about the journey it takes to find the way back to standing. She writes with such

I'm always glad to hear that Taylor Dean has a new book coming out. I have enjoyed every book I've read by her and she is definitely one of my favorite authors! I love that she takes on tough topics and shows the good that can come from less than ideal circumstances.

This book didn't disappoint--it is filled with loss, heartache, love and healing. Chloe is broken. From the summary, we have an idea of why, but it takes a while to learn the entire story. She suffers another devastating loss at the

Amazing!!! I chose this book based on how many stars people gave it, without reading what the book was about, and I'm glad I did! Although my baby girl didn't have trisomy 18, I too lost a baby at later stages of pregnancy. I could totally relate to everything that Chloe was going through, and the fact that you will never forget. People that haven't been through it will never understand the day to day thoughts and feelings you continue to have days, months, and years after.

Taylor Dean has a way of ripping your heart out with her words and putting the pieces back together again so it's better than ever.

This book deals with grief after the loss of a baby in utero. The grief and brokenness of divorce when the couple can't recover together. There is also the grief of a man whose wife aborted his child that he desperately wanted without him knowing. It's pretty sad to say the least but it does move on from the heartbreak to a new love and a HEA.

My goodness as I’m writing this review I’m still in tears. It’s been a very long time since a story as hit me like this. I’m so emotional right now. This book really gets to you, it’s raw, it’s beautiful and sad and happy. I think every emotion I had came out. Despair is how i felt like I was inside Chloe looking out. I had to stop, think, breathe. Bookmark, go back to the beginning of the story, look, think, it gave me hope to carry in reading. I will definitely

What would you sacrifice for your child's life? For some,that answer is easy and for others, well, they may need some time to think about that!

This story is all kinds of heartache and grief and I really felt every moment Although I was able to see some of the plot coming, I experienced the emotional journey of what Chloe and Jack took. There was humor, romance, sadness, depression… it truly felt so realistic, such an emotional roller coaster and it caught my attention from the beginning to end.

I have read all of Taylor's books, and each book is amazingly great in it's own way! My favorite has always been For Nick, but after reading this one, I may have to review my opinion.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I feel the need to start off this review making it perfectly clear that I've never been so concerned about a pile of dirty dishes so much before in my life. No spoilers. You're just going to have to figure that one out on your own.

There are so many parts of this book that I'd love to address, but this is a book review, not an essay. I'll have to put a cap on it and go with the most poignant part...the part that made thi

2.5 Stars


This was okay. The writing threw me off a bit. It was pretty formal, including the dialogue, so it didn't seem as realistic on what people would do or say. Some situations were also a bit cheesy and odd, and all of that, including the 3rd person POV, just made the story a bit stilted and it was hard to connect with the characters or the situations, making this book a bit boring for me. This book would probably be better for more people who can empathize with what these character

Well this was heavy. Phew, my tears would not stop. This story draws real emotions and you easily connect with ALL characters and their various situations. Chloe’s retelling of her tragedy gutted me. It’s so brave. It’s so sad. It’s heartbreaking. For all the women who went through similar experiences I commend you. You are amazing to still stand, live life and move forward.

Compelling and emotional xx

A heartbreaking story with hope at the end of the story. I loved how the author introduced the characters. I’m in awe of the writing and the story was both a struggle and a joy to witness. Depression and grief are both extreme emotions that the author nailed. I didn’t hate Mark, I was upset with how he handled everything but i can sympathise with his pain and grief. He was wrong but the great thing about this novel was the forgiveness Chloe was willing to give to both
This was a nice, slow burn romance. The author did a good job with the difficult topic (view spoiler), especially since this affected her family in real life. Chloe is a compelling character, her grief at the beginning is incredibly sad. I liked seeing her growth and recovery, you couldn't help but root for her.

I like this author's books, but wish there were some love scenes. I prefer a little steam, I'm not a fan of clean/ fade to back
4+ Stars

Wow, this book takes you through a lot of emotions! Dean brings light to a difficult subject matter, child loss and more specifically, Trisomy 18. Having known someone who walked this journey, this story was even more touching for me. For some this subject matter may be too hard to read, for others it may resound with them. Only, you can determine where you fall in that category.

There were moments of heartache and moments that made you smile. There was a sweetness to the story, as well a
