Summary

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. 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 17. Love found me when I was 21. My name is Aundrea McCall, and this is my journey.

Contains mature themes.

Powerful and touching story

This book really opened my eyes regarding life with cancer. I was sad, happy, and a bit crazy at times listening to it. If your looking for a good story then this book is for you but be prepared for some tears.

Very realistic

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started listening to this book. Would it take the subject of serious illness and somehow paint a rosy ending or would it go for reality -- HEA be damned?
Happily, at least from my point of view, it went towards reality, until the end, when the author looses her courage and turns things into a dream. Of course, in order to make this a series, that had to happen, but it was still a disappointment.

4.5 Intense Stars

I read this book back in 2014 and when I saw it came out in audio I had to have it. I remember just feeling so much of Aundrea’s emotion and her fight for life.

I loved the relationship she has with her sister and her brother in law. It really was a great story of learning to live with what life has thrown at you and not let it beat you. She doesn’t feel sorry for herself; she doesn’t wish it to have happened to someone else. Does she ask why me sure who wouldn’t but again like I said her attitude is everything.

You know me I am not a dramalama kind of girl and I am so happy this book didn’t really have that, there were secrets and not full truths about her sickness but I got that for the most part. I can understand why she wanted to keep it to herself.

I really enjoyed the love story and how it unfolds with Parker. That to me made me enjoy the book she was dealing with so much but she had Parker to keep things into perspective even if he didn’t know he was doing it.

I think my only real complaint about this whole book was her parents, the author does explain them “away” and all but I don’t know they could have been on the phone, whatever it took to be a support for her. We only get a little of them and I don’t know it just was the only thing I wished had been different.

I am so glad the narrator was someone who can put emotion in her voice and make us feel some of what the character was feeling, she was a happy character who tries to make it as easy on everyone as much as possible and you can get that vibe from Amy London’s performance and that was pretty cool.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Be warned, this is a tear jerker!!!!

I kept listening, thinking the reviews say HEA and and so it has to get better. I kept waiting until the very end then I was so mad I gave myself a headache. If you are looking for a story to make you cry your eyes out then go ahead and listen to this. But if want a simple good HEA romance story, keep searching.

Lots of emotion

I downloaded this book based on the preponderance of positive reviews, but I don't share the overwhelming enthusiasm many other readers/listeners felt. What's Left of Me did, indeed, provide a brutally honest picture of the suffering many cancer patients endure, but as a love story it left me disappointed at times. I'm not a fan of the "I have to keep this secret at all costs" trope, and its use here annoyed me as much as it has elsewhere. The initial meeting between Aundrea and Parker seemed out of character with the people we come to know later in the book, and Aundrea's inability/unwillingness to trust him when he gives her no cause became increasingly frustrating. There was a tremendous amount of repetition, and the author's cute little game at the very end just angered me and left me uninterested in reading the sequel. I gave it three stars because I liked Parker's character, and I do respect the author for delivering a love story in a setting uncomfortable and/or unfamiliar to many readers.

great romance

Was an interesting story. A bit slut-shamey at times, and that "dream" ending was kinda corny, but it was a really great book about a girl with cancer not looking for love and finds it anyway.

I cried through most of It

I loved the story, either the author did some fantastic homework or she knows chronic pain herself. I am 11 years into several incurable injuries and illnesses and know exactly what it's like to live day to day with it so I can say she hit the nail on the head there, I loved the thought of having someone that would love you unconditionally like that, but I believe the sex scenes could be toned down, I wouldn't let anyone under 18 read this book for that reason alone. I'm sure this story will stay on my mind for quite a long time.

Emotionally moving story

Lets be real. Given the synopsis, hopes for a happy ending are slim...that being said, The passion in this book and its characters make you feel like you are living this journey with them. So painful at times and at others incredibly beautiful. This book has the "feels". Highly recommend this book. This book does contain some explicit situates and I would not recommended it for young readers.
Overall, beautifully written.
