MY FEELINGS ON THIS FABULOUS BOOK: 5+ STARS
My thoughts on the book Today Only by D Love. There are no words that could begin to do this book justice. The author is a very caring and helpful person that is always there to help out a author on pimping their books or doing release parties as a blogger. Well the tables are turned, this is her first book and it was amazing. You can truly get into the feelings and emotions of the characters. I love how she gave Rye and Jett such a three dimensional dynamic. You could feel the reluctance that Rye had in a relationship with Jett but knew that her daughter Em was going to need lots of support. The emotions just poured from the pages I was unable to put this book down. Ok truth be told I was so affected by this story and so connected to all the characters that I cried like a big big baby. I so was rooting for love to conquer all but this was what happens in life. There are times that we find that one true soul mate and we must cherish the time that we have and like the title says make it TODAY ONLY. I absolutely loved this quote from the book that Jett said to Rye.
“What I want from you is simple. I want today only. If it’s laughter, I want it. If it’s pain, I want it. Whatever today holds, as long as the day holds you, I want it. I want today only.”
Isn’t that truly beautiful. Yes, I’m crying again. You are such a wonderful and truly gifted author. You were able to touch on so many different emotions out of the reader that we could truly connect. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fantastic emotional storyline. You get so immersed into their lives you just know that the author has dug deep within themselves to harness the true feelings of someone going through a horrific and life alterring fork in the road. I really hope to read more books from this amazing author. Thank you for allowing us into Jett, Rye, and Emily journey through coping and overcoming adversity. Remember life is a gift that we are given it is up to us to make the memories last.
