Life makes no promises, and sometimes, you draw the short straw.
Landon Johnston’s life came to a grinding halt seven months ago, when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
With the encouragement of his grandmother, Landon works his way out of his slump and tries to live life while he still can.
Deciding he doesn’t want to drag anyone else down his morbid path, Landon gives up all friendships and denies himself love. It’s better this way, because all he has to offer is eventual heartache and sadness.
While traveling the world, Landon meets Abel Matheson, a free-spirited, unedited, and nerve-grating man who was supposed to only be a one-night-stand.
Despite Landon’s insistence that he can’t form a relationship with his current diagnoses, Abel is persistent and will not be ignored.
Fighting against all his ingrained urges to run, Landon finds himself drawn down the road he swore he’d never take.
Intimacy grows and bonds form…
Only… Abel doesn’t know Landon is sick.
How can anyone love a man with no future?
Telling him might cause him to run, but staying silent means living a lie. A lie which will only reveal itself in time.
Wow…consider me blown away, going into this series I knew this story was going to be sad. I expected this story to be immensely angst ridden, gloomy and somber. And while those elements were present this book is truly about living each day to the fullest with no regrets just like the title and the foreword suggests. I can’t express enough about unbelievably real, emotional, and fantastic this story is. This author literally blew my mind over and over again. I loved so many things about this story. The characters, the unconditional love, those real unbelievably touching moments…all of it was exceptional.
Landon Johnston was given news that no one ever wants to get. He’s dying; diagnosed with terminal brain cancer his time is limited. Coming to terms with that and knowing there are still so many things he wants to do with his short time Landon starts really living and seeking adventure at every turn.
In another country and possibly what feels like another life to Landon he meets Abel. Abel is unlike anyone Landon has ever met. He’s intriguing and off-putting…he makes Landon feel alive and while Landon wants nothing more than to run from Abel they find themselves spending more and more time together. Adventuring together…living and enjoying it…together…
Landon and Abel have to come to terms with Landon’s secret keeping and then his diagnosis. After the pain of it all they both realize they want to spend whatever time Landon has left together.
Like I said this is a story about life and love not death and sadness. It shows how unfair it all seems at times but what unbelievable good can come from the worst of times.
This book was absolutely remarkable and I can’t stress that enough.
I absolutely recommend this story to all.
