Jesse Falcon has dedicated his life to one cause: to fight against that which has taken so much from him.
He’s learned the hard way that if you want something to be done, you have to do it yourself.
No more waiting for others to make a difference.
With football, a pre-med program and a coveted internship, he has no time for anything or anyone else. The truth is, he doesn’t think his barely healed heart can take it.
Despite his determination to remain distant, he soon finds a girl who will not only fracture that resolve but shatter it completely.
Zoe Evans is an average college student.
She has a group of friends, and enough gossip lingers in the halls to make her days interesting.
Her whole world changes in a heartbeat though – one blackout, and a week-long fever forces her into a battle she isn’t prepared to fight.
The odds are stacked against her.
Will she have the strength to prevail?
What can I say Gianna created a heartfelt story far more emotional than anything she written. But sadly I saw the in between of beginning to end before it happened. Even with that it slight downfall I still found that it was an enjoyable,quick read.
The characters are likable people to an extent. I wasn’t always fond of the seemingly back and forth with themselves in their own minds, even though it made sense for it to be.
I enjoyed the reentry of past characters but I felt that Colton our main book beau from Better with you came off as a bit of an A**.
But this review is about Falcon and Evans. I did enjoy their story. The way they met and the second chance they received.
The second chance that they both received made sense to have them paired off. Gianna clearly took care to capture the authenticity of the illness. She took great care to handle it in as sensitive of a matter as she could.
I loved meeting Jesse Falcon. His dedication to himself was refreshing the same with Zoe Evans. Both stories came together as one and yet they both could break you down in different ways. Welling of the eyes will happen maybe even a tear or two shed.
Despite the pain in the back stories the two merging into one is aesthetically pleasing. You will need tissues. There are a handful of very heartfelt moments the really bring the story alive and reminds us that love can be found in any circumstance.
