Only once more, always once more.
Dancer Tammi Johnson thought she knew everything about her body--until she was almost crippled in a car accident. She'd resigned herself to a life without joy until the sexy and dynamic Tom showed her that dancing wasn't the only passion, or pleasure, she could experience. He taught her to live and love with her whole body--and her whole heart.
But when tragedy strikes again, Tammi is devastated. Until she acknowledges that the only way to honor the love of her life is to celebrate what he taught her, and for Tom, she’d do anything once more.
The first paragraph. That was as far as I got into the blurb before I decided to download this freebie from Amazon. And damn do I wish I would have finished it because this was one hell of a depressing book.
It's the story of a young woman who has lost her newlywed husband to cancer. We join her as she remembers the best of their time together, the worst that led to his passing, and the moment where she sparks hope to truly live again.
Personally, I don't give a flying fuck if my dead husband is disappointed or angry at me for not moving on with my life after he dies. He's dead. He doesn't get a say. Not one way or another. And if I choose to whither away into a shell of myself, then that's my living right to do so!
