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!

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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

Heartbreakingly beautiful

I was equally touched and gutted as I finished reading this book. As a mother, I can't fathom what torture it would be for me to lose a baby. As an aunt who lost a niece at 22 weeks of gestation, I witnessed the emotional havoc that was wreaked at her loss. Taylor Dean has not only beautifully described the complicated feelings of a mother who has lost her baby, she has also gifted us a stunning romance. The unfettered support and understanding that Jack gives Chloe is i

Nice story despite a difficult topic. I loved the characters. They all seemed so real and human and all of them had real faults and problems that made them even stronger.
Clean, but talks about the loss of a baby due to a disease, so you may want to skip it if you're tender in that area.

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.

Very emotional but slow.
The Good
I actually cried! Like tears continuously falling down without even blinking kind of crying. I'm With You is about a couple's baby dying right before it's born and the depression and marriage complications that follow.

Emotionally, this book is intense. We follow Chloe as she falls down a depression that seems impossible to get out of. Everyone around her says she needs to get over it, even her husband, but how can you ever get over losing your baby?

The author reveals at the beginning that this book deals with the sensitive issues of baby loss grief. I’m very sensitive on this topic so it took me some time to read it.

I’ve enjoyed all of Taylor’s books, and I knew she’d take me down a hard path, sometimes dark, sometimes light.

Taylor Dean writes from her heart. You will feel all of the emotions; sadness, loss, hope, love. It’s always smart to have some tissues handy.

Taylor Dean’s I’m With You will not only tug at your heartstrings, it will break your heart and put it back together again. Making the hard choices is when you really know you are alive.

I cannot imagine the paralyzing effect losing a child would have on me. Taylor Dean does an amazing job of wringing every drop of emotion from me, but leaving me satisfied at the end.

Amazing! This romance deals with the unique topic of child loss, specifically to Trisomy 18 syndrome. The feelings of grief that were painted throughout this story made me feel one with Chloe. I felt her pain, her loss, her detachment from others and understood WHY. It makes me want to never be quiet or ignore someone else when they are suffering from loss of any kind. Silence, or pretending something tragic didn’t happen when it did, causes the griever to feel even more alone. Telling someone t ...more

The most heartbreaking, beautiful, love story. Bring the tissues, you will need them.

I’M WITH YOU was amazing. Somehow this book kept me on my toes while crying, laughing and looking forward to a better future. The prologue gave you a glimpse of a happily ever after, but the story takes you back and shows you the difficult journey it took to get there.

This is the third book that I have read by Taylor Dean, and each book is totally different from the others. This author does not have a formula that she uses to write each book. Each book has a totally different story and focus, and yet each one is still better than the other.
