I knew before I even began this book, just from having read the synopsis, that I was going to cry while reading it. The story didn't get really emotional until much latter on in the book, but cry I did. A lot.
I thought the book was well written and was enjoyable to read. It had a good storyline that kept my interest all the way through. The whole story is told from Brennan's POV (the main male character) which although I did love, I think at times I would have maybe liked to have known what was going through Neddie's head (the main female character).
There were a few unexpected surprises towards the end of the book which I liked. The story didn't go as I initially expected it would but I was glad about that. I loved the ending even though it wasn't one I expected this story would have - to be honest the ending made me cry a hell of a lot (both happy and sad tears). The ending was, I think, one of my favourite parts of the story.
I look forward to reading more books by this author in the future.

enter Neddie “Ned” Waters, who has one year left to live and has a mother who wishes her daughter to fall in love before she dies…
Ned is a wealthy jewelry designer to whom, money is no object. So she hires Cole to be her fake boyfriend to appease her mother. Ned’s rules are that the two not fall in love with each other, not have sex and not tell anyone about the arrangement.
This is the first time I have read a book penned by this author. I found her writing to be solid, and the characters were well-developed.
I did have a few issues with the plot. While this is fiction unless I am reading PNR/Fantasy, I have to have believability in the books I read, for example, 1) Who carries a pen and paper with them while snow skiing? Whether you are a person who wants to chronicle all of life’s events, that isn’t going to happen. I can’t see someone stopping in the middle of the slope to write what was on their mind. 2) Our heroine has a life-threatening disease, which could easily be managed if she followed her doctor’s orders. I still don’t understand why she didn’t want to. Finally, it was a little too sweet and predictable for me.
There are several 4 and 5-star reviews for Love Me To Death, so perhaps I am just picky. Like I said, I did like the author’s writing style, and the premise was good.
And not dainty little tears. I'm talking full out balling like a baby, reaching for the tissues and praying that the person sitting next to me did not see the snot dripping from my nose.
Told in Brennan's point of view, the story of Brennan and Neddie begins with Brennan about to be evicted from his apartment due to lack of paying rent. Brennan is an actor and Neddie hires him to play the part of her boyfriend, because she only has a year left to live and she wants to make her mother happy by seeing her settled in a relationship.
I swear some of the best relationships start off as fakelationships.
With a binding contract in place explicitly stating DO NOT FALL IN LOVE and two characters who are developing genuine feelings for one another, you KNOW that that rule is going to be broken in no time at all.
Heartfelt and humorous, Brennan's whole life changes when Neddie comes into it and the banter and wit between these characters is incredible. Without giving anything away, I will say that one of my favorite things in this book are the flossy panties and the way Brennan loves to bring them up.
Another one of my favorite moments is Brennan encourages Neddie to make a bucket list and do the things that she wants to do before she passes away. Neddie is bound and determined to live her life the way she wants to and Brennan sees that.
The chemistry between Brennan and Neddie is just amazing and the love that they share is unbreakable. Brennan and Neddie have literally become one of my favorite book couples of all time.
With huge unexpected twists and a roller coaster ride of emotions, Love Me to Death is a MUST read and my favorite book of 2016 so far!
