It was really insightful seeing it from post transplant view, how odd it must feel.
Thankfully she does amazingly and gets the end she deserves. Beautiful book xxx
Somewhere on the other side of the Alabama city, a tattooed, rough-around-the-edges Rhys Young is also getting settled in a new life, living with his Gramps and taking care of his half-sister. Until a chance encounter with Becks ignites a yearning he can’t ignore.
In alternating first person points of view, Erin Hayes does a wonderful job of weaving this romantic story from Rhys to Becks and back again. Rhys is a great motorcycle-riding knight in a shining armor. In characterizing Becks, Hayes does a superb job of highlighting the long-term attention and medical care required by any patient that receives an organ transplant, as well as the unexpected results of survivor guilt.
I applaud Hayes for her attention to detail, her dedication to expressing the struggle as it can be, and for not shying away what can be a delicate subject matter. Her writing is smooth and easy to follow. This was a superb, highly recommended read.
Some steamy scenes and four letter language

I just loved this story.
This book reminded me a bit of A Walk To Remember, but their not in HS and there is a HEA but man it gave me the same feels. Erin hit this one outta the park.
Let me say that when I read the blurb for this book, I had to read it! I was intrigued by this unique storyline and how it would play out.
To say I am impressed would be an understatement!
I am floored by the pure emotion and raw material this story contains.
You have two individuals with broken hearts--both figuratively and literally.
Two souls that are brought together over the love of an old motorcycle and an attraction that can't be denied.
"On one side, I am being blessed with the gift of life. On the other, darker side, someone had to die to give me a heart...I realize that I have two sets of hopes and dreams now riding on my life. My donor's and mine. And it's terrifying."
Becks is a character that you want to read about.
She's young, but strong.
She's living life, but on borrowed time.
She's a fighter, but guilt consumes her.
I will admit that every page I turned, I was worried by what it would bring. Reading about the life of a heart transplant patient isn't easy. My own heart ached for her healing and understanding of the situation she was experiencing.
Then there was Rhys. This man--gosh, this man. From page one, I wanted to hug him. He lived a very rough life and didn't think he would ever have the chance to get away from it all. Upon hearing bad news, he packed up his life and moved down south to be with his Gramps and sister, Charlotte. That was the toughest, and most rewarding, thing he would ever do.
That move lead to Becks.
And Becks needed him just as much as he needed her.
"What does it matter? I'm literally dying as we speak! Whether it's tomorrow, three months from now, or a year, at some point, my body is going to reject my heart. Because that's what my body does. And then I'm screwed. I--"
"Don't you think like that. Don't you ever think that, Becks. Because you have my heart. And I won't allow you to reject it."
I adored this story so much!
It was beautifully written and you felt like you were reading a friend's life being told within the pages of this book. That's how much Becks and Rhys capture your attention-your heart.
Erin Hayes has a new fan now!
Thank you for bringing these characters to life and for bringing attention to the miracle that is in the form of transplants.
"Our scars make us who we are as much as the flesh and bones. They're permanent parts of our souls no matter how much they fade over time on the outside."
