They lived the life they were given; they loved the life they made.

Cheerleader Taylor Smith doesn’t want to die a virgin. Unfortunately, if the terminally-ill leukemia patient doesn't find a lover or a stem-cell match within months, her fear will become reality. When her cancer mentor is revealed to be a hottie entrepreneur from California, it seems fate might finally be on her side.

Tech-geek Gavin Taylor has everything he ever wanted, except someone to grieve for him when he's gone. With his melanoma cancer beyond the help of his riches, he agrees to participate in a cancer patient mentoring program where he's matched with a dying teen from Texas. Despite his immediate attraction, the Silicon Valley whiz intends only to provide friendship and happy memories to the beautiful, young woman who is determined to win his love.

When it's discovered that his frozen sperm and her harvested eggs could lead to a cure, Taylor's mother offers to be a surrogate. And Gavin must decide if he can risk the heart he has never given and a child he'll never know to a girl he just met.


Hannelore and I will be reading this one on September 4th. Everyone welcome ☺

I cannot believe that the first line in this book is "Mom, I want you to help me find a lover."
I could never say that to my mother!

Kat (kaitlins16) I'm curious about what you to will think of the book overall. I believe that out of everyone who has read it, I liked it the least.

Sorry! I'm almost finished now. I'll still discuss it with you. It's compulsive reading though, once you pick it up you wont want to put it down for too long.


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83068 comments Mod

Trinity This was a really sad book :(

I didn't think it was as good as everyone is saying it is. These are usually my type of books--the ones I usually get really into--but something about this one just felt really off. It was a nice story, but I wasn't pulled into it, and I noticed a lot of things that I didn't like (which has nothing to do with the cancer parts of the book). It didn't even make me cry, which shocked me because sad books or sad parts do that a lot.
