What's Left of Us Tour Stop!

The heartwarming conclusion to What's Left of Me.

Love found me three years ago.

I’m cancer free, happily married to the love of my life, and working toward my dream career.

Our life is complete. Perfect, really.

Or is it?

I’ve always wanted a family of my own, but never dreamed I could have one. Now Parker’s ready to make my dream our reality.

But sometimes our dreams are haunted by our deepest fears. Fears of failure, having a child, and in our case … death. How do I help the person I love get over his fear when I’m still trying to overcome that same fear myself?

Together we must learn What’s Left of Us.
I still remember when I read the first book in this series What’s Left of Me.  I recall being so emotional as I read about Aundrea fighting cancer and how she hated having people take care of her or giving her those pitiful looks.  She just wanted to be normal, healthy and happy.  Parker came into her life and loved her like no other man could.  The back and forth between them regarding allowing him to be with her versus protecting him from the chance she might die……..yes I still remember that story months after I finished it, so it was not shocking I jumped at the chance to read What’s Left of Us when the opportunity came around. 
This part of the story starts with Parker continuing to make Aundrea’s dreams come true.  He had purchased a house for them so they could begin their next phase as a family.  That meant he was ready for children.  Even though her cancer is not present at this moment, she still had other health concerns, which you will read first thing in this book that is going to once again put her in the position of needing help from strangers.  Life was never easy for these two and in this book you will see just how much they have to go through. 
For me this was an even more emotional story, I had already fallen in love with this couple, been through so much with them and just desperately wanted their happiness.  The author does a great job at showing life doesn’t always return to what we once called normal.  Sometimes illness and other issues steal the fundamental right for a woman to carry her own child or for a man to look in his babies eyes and see parts of himself.
She is once again dependent on someone else to help her create a life and move on.  Fear is a constant in her world, she knows any minute her heart can give out, the cancer can come back and will she be forced one day to leave a child motherless.  Every time she begins to let happiness invade her heart, she is struck with the reminder that things don’t always last forever.  Parker will fight to keep her convinced that going for their dreams is better than preventing their happiness out of fear.
I wish I could go on and on about this book and the emotions that came while reading.  I couldn’t put it down once I started, even late into the night, I just had to know if my couple would finally be able to feel happy and accept that tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone.  When I am asked about a book recommendation where the reader wants an ugly cry that will leave them feeling good and hopeful, I always tell them about Amanda Maxlyn and these two books.  She ended this series perfectly, but I have to tell you I was not ready to let go of Aundrea and Parker.  I am sure their story will stay with me for a long time.

When I’m not chasing or cleaning up after my boys (yes, all three), I can be found writing or snuggled up with my kindle, a glass of wine, and spending time with my fictional friends and family.
I am first and foremost an avid reader! I love to read anything romance from paranormal, young/new adult, contemporary, and even yes, (wide eyes) erotic/BDSM.
