When her sister Lila and brother-in-law Gray are killed in a tragic accident, Bella is named as guardian to her two young nephews. Then she discovers that she's expected to co-parent with Gray's best friend, and grief turns to shock. Noah has always driven her crazy, and Bella's sure the arrogant, handsome Navy SEAL is the last person she wants to share a life with.
Just as it seems they'll never see eye to eye, letters from Lila start to arrive - letters she wrote in case they ever ended up in this situation. And so the reluctant couple follows her instructions, spending ever more time together as part of their unexpected, unconventional family.
Forced into an impossible situation, will these letters from the past bring them together? Life as We Know It meets P.S. I Love You in this heartwarming story of loss, grief, family, and love.

This is the first time I have had this author.
I found this story a real Tear jerker with bouts of laughter.
I reckonmend a box of tissues near at hand.
The story is as close to the family members who are in the armed services.
I would recommend this book for all to listen to.
I struggled to finish, it was too predictable. The narrator was forced and hard to listen to.
Interesting use of letters to drive the plot. Narrator - good at differentiating voices. Good.
The story touches families all over the nation who can fill the shoes and the ones who just have hardship in their lives. The beautiful romance that blossoms the way it does give hope that you too may be blessed someday with love like that over all circumstances.
I loved this story; however, I think it could have been a little bit shorter and dragged a little near the end. There were times that I thought Bella was too harsh and wanted to slap her for certain comments. I thought she was too uptight. Totally understood Noah and why he was scared to commit.
"Made me cry"
This was so much more than I expected. The characters are very well developed. Angsty sweetness. Loved it
Such a sweet love story about love conquers all. Surprised twists and turns. The narrator MAKES the story.
