Okay, where to start? Firstly I do not normally choose romance books to read, those that know me well know my fiction choices tend to be a lot darker but this grabbed my attention and as I promised myself I would expand into some new genres this year with an open mind I went for it. I am so glad that I did.
This is quite frankly ...more
the word in the title might scare you, but if you've read Prude or This Love you know I'm not in the business of torturing readers.
I wanted to write this book after I had my very first mammogram and found the lack of stories about breast cancer disturbing.
I wanted to write about a character who tried her best to overcome what life had thrown at her, with a bit of courage and a bit of humor.
I definitely couldn’t have written Lucy without the invaluable resource of several ...more
FU CANCER by Hilaria Alexander is one of the most powerful book I've read with such great characters.
Three words could describe it: Strength, hope, love.
As much as the word Cancer can scare you, don't be afraid to read this book. It is beautiful, hopeful, funny, swoony..
This book will give you all the feels. I must say that I'm in awe of how perfectly written and described a single mom's battle against Cancer was.
I would recommend it to every one willing to read a heart wrenching and ...more

"You were beautiful before, but now you’re just… more. You’re everything. You’re my everything.”
I hesitated to start reading a book with Cancer in the title, but even though this story highlights Lucy's diagnosis and battle with breast cancer, it is funny, heartwarming, and romantic.

Thus starts the journey of intense emotions, doubts about the future and a scary hope of something beautiful and everlasting.
From the first chapter until the last, the book kept me glued to my kindle. Hilaria Alexander took me on a ride of intense emotions, from laugh out loud to cringe wor ...more

This book is so much more than what I though from just the blurb. It's a love story, it's loss, it's fighting for your life, it's being scared shitless of the unknown. It's a story of Lucy's fight to live, to love and to find her new normal!
This book is written about a truly hard subject matter that has affected each and every one of us at some point in our lives. Whether it be us directly or indirectly through a friend or family member. I laughed, I bawled my eyes out and the whole time reading ...more
I'm a huge fan of Hilaria Alexander, her writing is great and her stories will draw you in and make you feel. There are a few ways she could have gone about writing this story, but instead of dwelling on the sadness, fear, and death that cancer usually brings she wrote about hope, love and courage. Lucy was a fighter, and even though she was pissed at life for throwing her this curve ball, she embraced it. She tried to live life to its fullest even wit ...more

From the moment that Lucy was introduced I knew that I would love her. It's not everyday that you read a book about cancer and the plot doesn't circle around the negatives...
It might be that Lucy had already been having a fucked up time when cancer decided to take residence on her breast... I also loved how the love interest didn't come in until after the first few chapters in... sure he made in appearance... but he d ...more
