Blog Tour: What's Left of Me by Amanda Maxlyn

What's Left of Me


Life works in mysterious ways.
Four years ago I became known as the girl with cancer.
I refuse to cry.
And I refuse to give in.
A relationship with a man is the last thing I’m looking for right now, but one night with Parker changes everything. He is persistent, and he knows what he wants. Me.
He doesn’t treat me like I’m fragile.
But he doesn’t know, and I’m not ready to tell him.
What if it changes everything?
Tragedy found me when I was seventeen.
Love found me when I was twenty-one.
My name is Aundrea McCall, and this is my journey.
  My Review:

This is the third book in the last three months that has done this to me!!! still ever flowing tears. 

Parker...he's so yummy. 

As you've read in the blurb, Aundrea has been living with cancer. She has survived it once already but it's back. 

"Cancer. It can break you. Or it can make you stronger. I choose stronger. I choose survival."

That quote gets me every time. It shows you how strong and how amazing our beautiful MC is. I like strong female leads because I feel like that's what girls in the younger generation need. Those weak minded girls are a thing in the past.

If they were ever a thing...

Aundrea and her friend, Jean, go out to have a fun girls night out. It's there that we meet the beautiful and charismatic, Parker! Both him and Aundrea have consensual sex that turns into a one night stand with Aundrea leaving poor Parker the next morning. 

But fate is a funny funny thing because you see, Parker just so happens to be Aundrea's brother in law's partner at his veterinary practice!! Of course, they have to act as if they don't know each other. Ha!

"Oh, baby...something to know about me is that I love a good challenge, and I never back down from a bet. I don't lose. Ever." -Parker

The build up with the romance was so perfect it hurts. I loved watching these two banter back and forth, cause believe me, that sexual tension is no joke! 

"I'm easy to please." - A
"Well lucky for you I like to please, so it looks like my day just got better."-P

Man he is sooo dreamy. 

What's Left of Me will leave you so breathless and it will make you hurt. But in a good way. It's such a beautiful story that I know I will be able to read again and again. 

Just know though, this book was gut wrenchingly beautiful <= see what I did there?! How could something be gut wrenchingly beautiful, you ask? 

Well when you read this book, you'll know exactly what I mean!!!

" I refuse to give in. I refuse to back down. I refuse to submit. I refuse to cry."

Absolutely stunning!! Go get your copy asap. 

Thank you kindly to Amanda for providing me with a review copy for an honest review and a shout out to Brandee's Book Endings for setting this up! <3
