VERY emotive read

I was lucky to be given this book to read by the author. I've not read a book by this author before, but I certainly will be adding her to my list of 'good' authors.

I'm not going to tell you too much about the book because it always spoils things for me if I read long reviews about a book.

This is certainly a love story, throw in cancer and a baby and you have an emotive read. I had my hankies out yet again. I'm not a cry baby by nature, this story certainly sucks you in at the heart strings.



HERE IS A BIT ABOUT THE AUTHOR:



A Taylor-Made Life”
A Contemporary New Adult with strong romantic elements
By Kary Rader



About A Taylor-Made Life
Five years ago while I was pregnant with my youngest child, my husband was diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma cancer. It was a difficult and emotional time in our lives. He’s now well and cancer free, but last year when a friend's daughter was diagnosed with cancer, all those emotions came flooding back. A Taylor-Made Life is the result of those emotions. It's a special story looking for a home in the hearts of readers. I pray you give the characters an opportunity to touch you.

A Taylor-Made Life is one of the best books I've read this year and it's not one I'll soon forget... Taylor and Gavin stole my heart and my breath, and I wasn't ready to let them go.” – Nikki Barrett, Storm Goddess Book Reviews

"Beautifully written, and I would dare anyone not to cry..... Gavin and Taylor have such depth and emotion, it's hard not to fall in love with them. These two characters will remain in my memory forever." – Melissa Limoges, Insert Clever Quip Here Book Reviews

6 Stars, 2 full boxes of Kleenex...Beautiful!" – a.c. Mason, bestselling author

Kary Rader is a wonderful new voice in New Adult fiction. Taylor-Made is a must-read.”– Jill Limber, author and editor, Boroughs Publishing Group



Blurb:
They lived the life they were given; they loved the life they made.
Cheerleader Taylor Smith doesn’t want to die a virgin. Unfortunately, if the terminally-ill leukemia patient doesn't find a lover or a stem-cell match within months, her fear will become reality. When her cancer mentor is revealed to be a hottie entrepreneur from California, it seems fate might finally be on her side.
Tech-geek Gavin Taylor has everything he ever wanted, except someone to grieve for him when he's gone. With his melanoma cancer beyond the help of his riches, he agrees to participate in a cancer patient mentoring program where he's matched with a dying teen from Texas. Despite his immediate attraction, the Silicon Valley whiz intends only to provide friendship and happy memories to the beautiful, young woman who is determined to win his love.
When it's discovered that his frozen sperm and her harvested eggs could lead to a cure, Taylor's mother offers to be a surrogate. And Gavin must decide if he can risk the heart he has never given and a child he'll never know to a girl he just met.
