For a first book, this author did a wonderful job with a very strong and emotional topic as infertility. I am sure it was a topic close to home as it was so truthfully told with all the disappointments and shuffles along the way. This is a very strong and relevant topic as more and more couples struggle to have the family and dream they desperately want. IVF can sometimes be the saving grace for these couples and can give them the little miracles they so desperately seek. I was lucky in my life to not have this issue but know of many that have been living this same story this past year or two. Motherhood is full of struggles, joy and a blessing from the moment you dream about having a baby to your last dying breath. More women need to write their stories to give inspiration and knowledge to others to help them with their own journey during this difficult time.
As this was the author's first book the story was very well written and the flow was entertaining and had me turning the page in anticipation of what would happen next. The love that the two characters had for each other was felt through the words of the author and had me many time heartbroken and sad. Underlining this book is a great romance story that is hidden in a personal struggle to start a family. The chemistry between Sam and Dani heats up the pages as they do their best to stay connected. I received and ARC copy of this book and this is my honest and voluntary review.
Can a lovely marriage sustain the stresses and obstacles of IVF?
Will they see their dream come true?
These are just two questions our loving married couple Danielle and Sam Hunt will try to live through during this book. After many years of not being able to fall pregnant Dani decided they need to take the next step, so she can make their dreams come true. She must give Sam what he dreams of being one day - a Grandfather.
Sam desperately loves his wife and feels pain at the fact they can not become pregnant but the most important thing to him is his wife. There is no life without you in it. He will do whatever is needed to save his marriage and to make Dani happy.
The message I get from this book is: you are not alone with your struggles and you must keep your loved ones close during this time in your journey of life. I hope you will enjoy the author's honesty and truthfulness she gives to us in this very emotional and uplifting romance like I did. I loved the font and color used a the start of each chapter and the fact that each quote used by words from the authors real life Husband, sharing their love for each other.
