I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I usually turn to Meghan Quinn for laugh-out-loud funny and super sexy books. I’m happy to know I can trust her to deliver the feels, too.
Dear Life intrigued me from the moment I read the synopsis. It sounded like it might be a fairly heavy book, but while it does deal with four characters going through some truly awful things, it was never too overwhelming. It delivered the feels… major feels at times… but I never felt like I was drowning in them. Instead, I found beautiful moments of hope with characters I totally connected with.
Now, I’m not going to get down into the weeds with the characters and their individual stories and the way they accepted their situations and grew over the course of this book. Believe me when I say it’s best for you to go in blind and just experience it all. The characters each had their ups and downs and yes, there were moments where I wanted to scream and yell at them. When it was all said and done, I’d fallen just a little bit in love with each of them and I found myself proud of how far they’d come since we first met them.
So, yes… expect some feels should you decide to pick up Dear Life. (And I believe you should.) But, it’s still a Meghan Quinn book, so you have to know you’ll find funny moments that’ll have you laughing out loud and sexy, romantic moments that will have you swooning. I enjoyed this side of Meghan’s writing so very much. And the final letter in the book? I might’ve cried. (I totally cried.) This was one beautiful book.
I know what it’s like to lose someone. I know the emptiness that slowly erodes your heart. I can help him heal, which in return, will help me. If this is the first step in letting go, them I’m proud to say I’m ready to take that first step.
“This is a pretty shitty world, but you’re a bright beacon amongst all the dark.”
“You’re not a one-and-done girl. You’re the forever kind.”
