Dying . . .
Dead . . .
Deceased . . .
It doesn’t matter how many times I say it or how many different names I give it, it still means the same thing. One of these days I’ll be nothing but a passing memory, a familiar face in a forgotten photo. But there’s three things I need before this life of mine ends . . .
I need to tell him I love him more than life itself.
I need to feel the strength of his arms wrapped around me just one more night.
Most of all, I need him to forgive me.
Eight years ago I broke the heart of the only man I’ve ever loved and today I’m moving home in hopes that he’ll let me put it back together. I’m not sure how many breaths I have left, but I’ll use each and every last one fighting for what I destroyed.
My name is Laney Jacobs and this is my journey.
This book was beautiful, heartbreaking and so well written! Pretty Pink Ribbons follows the story of Levi and Laney’s relationship over the course of many years.
Eight years ago, Laney and Levi were in love. Laney got the opportunity to get away and make something for herself by following her dreams. That is until Levi gave her an ultimatum making Laney pick her dreams or love. Over the course of their time apart Laney’s life has changed drastically. She knew she made a mistake leaving Levi, but she didn’t just do it for herself. She decides to come back home, however when she stumbles into Levi she knows without a doubt she shouldn’t have left.
Levi promised to never fall in love again. He has done well for himself over the past years, however love just isn’t the cards. When Laney left she took his heart with her but when she comes back into his life, he finds himself confused. He wants to be mad, he wants to push her away but he can’t deny the woman that has his heart.
When the truth is revealed of why she pushed him away and what is now become her life will they be able to forgive? Can they work through the challenges together?
I was seriously hooked right from the beginning of this book. Laney and Levi’s characters are likable so you are able to connect to them instantly. The chemistry is unreal and the story line of this book…. Just wow! The secondary characters, Mia, Benny and Laney’s brother they all have a story. I absolutely adored Mia and really hope we get to hear more about her. Thank god for friends and close family though, Laney surely needed them and everyone can only dream of having a friends like Mia and Benny! You will laugh, you WILL cry and you’ll feel every single emotion.
This was a fantastic read, one I recommend to everyone to pick up. K.L. Grayson did an amazing job with this book. 5 Stars!
“I wish it was someone else,” she croaks, swallowing hard. “There are thousands of bad people in the world, but it happened to you.” I watch her eyes fill with tears and then I look away. It’s pathetic of me really; that I’m unable to look my best friend in the face when it’s obvious that she is struggling with this almost as much as I am. But I’ve cried my fair share of tears and although I’m certain my tear ducts have yet to dry up, I don’t want to cry tonight. Somehow I know that if I watch Mia break, then I’ll shatter right along with her.
“I’m glad it’s me.” She gasps, startled by my words, and I rush to try and explain. “If it wasn’t me, it would be someone else, and I would never wish this upon someone else. You know that saying that God will only give you what you can handle?”
“Sometimes I tell myself that he just thinks I’m really strong and I can handle it, whereas someone else couldn’t.”
“Does that help?” she asks. “Does that make you feel better about it?”
“No, but it eases my mind. Sometimes when I’m having a good day, it brings me peace, however temporary it may be. But no, it doesn’t make me feel better.”
“Peace,” she whispers, seemingly trying the word on for size. “I want you to have peace.”
K.L. Grayson resides in a small town outside of St. Louis, MO. She is entertained daily by her extraordinary husband, who will forever inspire every good quality she writes in a man. Her entire life rests in the palms of six dirty little hands, and when the day is over and those pint-sized cherubs have been washed and tucked into bed, you can find her typing away furiously on her computer. She has a love for alpha-males, brownies, reading, tattoos, sunglasses, and happy endings…and not particularly in that order.
