A1ClpcfOTUL._SL1500_Synopsis“I love Aundrea and Parker. They make me believe in a love that withstands absolutely anything.” – Willow Aster, USA Today Best Selling Author

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.

michele review 5 star aI’m not even sure where to start with this review. I don’t know how many times I have started to type something up and just deleted it, because what I write doesn’t seem to do the book any justice. This book was beyond amazing and a must read for everyone!

Amanda keeps you so connected to the characters; it’s hard to tell if it’s their emotions you’re feeling or your own. I will warn you ladies, make sure you have a huge box of Kleneex and a fan near by. This book has some hot steamy scenes, but is also very emotional. There were times I had to stop reading because I couldn’t see past the tears, but this story is totally worth it.

Aundrea and Parker have been married for a year and are finally starting to have a life Aundrea thought she’d never have. The love they have for each other is simply awe inspiring. If only we could find a man like Parker, I think us women would have no need for book boyfriends. Especially with how he is in the bedroom ; )

When Aundrea and Parker decide to start a family, this is when the emotional coaster starts. There are a lot of obstacles that they have to over come, but when you have the love and support that they have, how could you not get everything you want?

However, when Aundrea loses someone very near and dear to her and she starts to rethink everything that’s she done up to this point. Will she continue to look in the past and regret what she’s done, or will she decided to live for what happens in the now and have the best life she can with Parker. Parker has some of his own issues he needs to work out as well, the nightmares are returning and he’s not sure how to handle them. Will Aundrea and Parker be able to help each other through these issues?

Seriously consider reading this series. If you don’t like to read books that make you cry, look past that. These books bring out emotions that not many can bring out of you. Amanda does such an amazing job of taking you to a place where you reconsider everything you’ve ever done in your life. Yes we may have our own problems, but someone out there has had a worse time of it then we’ll ever have.

Amazing job Amanda, I can’t wait to see what else you have in store for us in the future!

Abou the authorI am the mother of two little boys, married to the love of my life, and living in one of the smallest towns in Minnesota. 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.

Excerpt

Jennifer

Blake was not a happy camper nor was I. He was driving like a maniac. A Chevy pickup no less. He’d asked Mrs. Cho to have someone pick us up when we landed, but somehow that had gotten lost in translation and instead she’d rented him a pickup truck. As mad as I was at him, I’d do anything to see my metrosexual hero behind the wheel of this vehicle. That man in a pickup truck was like Batman in an RV.

“We need to find a Wal-Mart,” he grumbled.

“Why?” I gritted. I was still blindfolded and handcuffed, and I had no clue where I was except I knew it wasn’t some romantic island. I waited impatiently for his response.

“So, I can buy a chainsaw and saw off your handcuffs.”

Gah! The thought of Blake with a chainsaw sent a shiver down my spine. My life could be over. Mr. Born with a Silver Spoon in his Mouth was not exactly what I’d call handy. The only power tools he had any experience with were his tongue, his hands, and his cock.

“What about a locksmith?” My voice was urgent. “I’m sure one could make a key to unlock these damn things.”

“That’s a good idea, tiger.”

“Why don’t you take off my blindfold so I can keep my eyes peeled for one? And where the hell are we anyway?”

“That’s not happening. And I’m not telling.”

Two minutes later, Blake swerved off the road with a screech. My neck jerked painfully. I think I had whiplash. Horns were blasting at us from all directions.

“What the fuck are you doing, Blake? You’re going to get us killed!”

“There’s a Wal-Mart straight ahead of us,” he replied brightly.

Ten minutes later, Blake was leading me through the bustling mega-store. He had his fingers curled around my neck since holding one of my pinned back, cuffed hands was not an option. I could barely move my fingers. The fucking handcuffs were cutting off my circulation. Oh, was he going to pay for this. Big time!

Synopsis
My life ended the day I answered the door and found out James had died.  Writing has become my only release and secluding myself from the people who constantly judge me for my way of grieving has made me famous.  I’m not ready to love again, in fact it’s not even a thought.  Someone needs to tell that to Liam.  He’s breaking through all of the walls I’ve worked so hard to create.  How can one man be so intriguing?  He just gets me, maybe a little too well.

She vowed to keep her distance from dangerous men and untamed cowboys. But now Carter is back and hoping for a holiday miracle to reunite him with his first and only love.


DECKING DREW by Violet Duke
If anyone can make Drew Lawson believe in the magic of Christmas, of course the universe would pick the addictively sweet, mind-wreckingly beautiful Skylar Sullivan to try.

FAIRIES & WISHES by Karen Erickson (aka Monica Murphy)
