This book hit me like a ton of freakin bricks!! My God, I was up until 2am when I started this book and finally had to put it down because I could not read anymore. My mind was numb. My heart hurt like hell and we won't even talk about the swollen eyes and snot filled nose!
So we have Jenny who is 28 years old and is married to Gabe. He's a doctor and 12 years older than her. First thing I thought was....Trophy Wife!!
I was pulled through every damn emotion possible. I felt every single emotion Jenny went through and I experienced them with her. My chest hurt so bad I felt as if I had lost my husband too, that is how well the story is written. I had to put my Kindle aside after only 20% in because I was a mess.
Okay so now that the shock is over with we get into the grit of the story. Jenny has to make the decision to donate Gabe's organs because apparently he didn't do so, even though he's a doctor and believed highly in it. So after getting over the initial idea of donating "pieces of Gabe" off, she has the idea of taking something for herself. Jenny feels that since random strangers will receive "pieces of Gabe" then she should too. She makes the decision to have Gabe's sperm frozen so she can be inseminated and have Gabe's baby.
This is where Steve comes in. Ya know, the guy you read about as soon as you start the book? He's Jenny's neighbor and an attorney and is secretly head over heels in love with her. But he's engaged to Annie although he doesn't truly love her but feels he can find love with her. Cray Cray I know!!
So the story evolves and secrets are revealed. You get to see how death and loss can truly bring someone from the depths of hell to the surface again. We learn a lot of shocking secrets, one which is Jenny's and I honestly did NOT see that one coming! I had to reread it twice because my mind wasn't absorbing it!!! I think it's because I didn't understand WHY Jenny would want to put herself through this ugly lawsuit KNOWING her secret would be revealed and so many people would be affected. God woman wake up and smell the damn reality of the situation!!!
Will Jenny and Steve end up together? Does Jenny win the lawsuit and go through with the insemination? Well...you'll just have to pick it up and read the book to find out!!
