Leigh seemed to have her happily ever after. She married Brian, the guy of her dreams, started her own sewing business thanks to her new husband's computer skills, and got to be a mother to Nathan, Brian's son, who she loved like he was her own child. All of these things came to an abrupt and devastating halt, once Leigh realized she had been experiencing symptoms... her cancer was back. Now, with her new family, she had to battle her cancer again. Leigh didn't want to put them through this pain and struggled to protect them while she lost sight of what she needed.
Left to Love was the much-anticipated sequel to The Next Door Boys. I really loved The Next Door Boys and was so happy to find out she was writing a sequel after I finished it. I received it from NetGalley and it was one of my first reviews when I started blogging. I have loved every one of Jolene Perry's books since then; she has not disappointed me yet.
She is a fantastic new author that has definitely caught my attention. There are not many young adult authors that write about difficult situations such as cancer and abuse. I have said this in past reviews also, but it is very true and she does it very well. I keep comparing her books to my favorite author's Lurlene McDaniel, and that is pretty high praise for me. I had been looking for more books like hers and couldn't seem to find anything close enough to what I was looking for until I requested The Next Door Boys from NetGalley. I am so glad I did because I found an author I really love.
Left to Love was really good and did a great job pulling at my heart and then breaking it. This type of story isn't for everyone, but I love reading these types of stories. Yeah, I'm odd, I know, but hey, the books sell, so it can't only be me. I'm glad the author wrote more to Leigh and Brian's story and we got to see them married and have their forever. In most stories, you have the romance, but who knows what happens after the book ends? Do they get married? Do they end up falling out of love? I loved having that answer and also seeing them work though something incredibly difficult, which made them only love each other more in the end.
I look forward to reading more of Jolene Perry's work and am excited to see what she writes about next.
The first novel in this series, The Next Door Boys, is about Leigh's journey to live a "normal", cancer-free life. After battling cancer for a couple of years, Leigh finally has a chance to experience college, boys, and living on her own.
At the beginning of the second novel in the series, Left to Love, Leigh is in a great place in her life. She is married to the love of her life and her sewing business is doing extremely well. Everything seems like it is falling into place in her life, until she discovers that her cancer is back.
Left to Love is a very emotional story. I typically read about a book a day, but it took a lot longer for me to complete this book. It's a serious story about a heartbreaking situation, and honestly, I could only take so much of it at a time. It's not easy to watch Leigh suffer. The whole time I was reading this story I kept thinking, "Why did this have to happen to her? She's such a good person. It's just not fair." I get that Leigh is a fictional character, but I kept thinking about the real people who have to fight Leigh's battle and it broke my heart. Basically, I could only handle this story in small doses. That may sound like a bad thing, but it's not. Left to Love was an exceptional story.
I gave Left to Love (The Next Door Boys #2) by Jolene B. Perry 4 STARS (3.5 STARS). I strongly recommend this novel to young adults who are in the mood for a heavier, more intense story.
