A brilliant and touching romantic comedy from the USA Today bestselling author of The Friend Zone and The Happy Ever After Playlist.
When Vanessa Price quit her job to pursue her dream of traveling the globe, she wasn't expecting to gain millions of YouTube followers who shared her joy of seizing every moment. For her, living each day to its fullest isn't just a motto. Her mother and sister never saw the age of 30, and Vanessa doesn't want to take anything for granted.
But after her half sister suddenly leaves Vanessa in custody of her baby daughter, life goes from "daily adventure" to "next-level bad" (now with bonus baby vomit in hair). The last person Vanessa expects to show up offering help is the hot lawyer next door, Adrian Copeland. After all, she barely knows him. No one warned her that he was the Secret Baby Tamer or that she'd be spending a whole lot of time with him and his geriatric Chihuahua.
Now she's feeling things she's vowed not to feel. Because the only thing worse than falling for Adrian is finding a little hope for a future she may never see.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I’m gonna be straight with you, I am an Abby Jimenez fangirl. I can’t help it. If she writes it I fall head over heels for it. She just has a way of bringing in humor and joy in the most serious of subjects making the hard stuff not seem so heavy. And this is exactly what she did with Life’s Too Short, just adding more fuel to my love of all things she writes.
Life’s Too Short is about Vanessa, a travel YouTuber that tries to live her life to the fullest. She doesn’t want to miss a moment of joy since it is possible she has the same fatal disease her mother had. Instead she jet sets to everywhere and anywhere enjoying life to the fullest and sharing the experiences with her followers. That is until her half sister leaves her with her baby. Suddenly Vanessa is at the same place every day taking care of a baby that isn’t hers but that she loves to the fullest. But when she has a rough morning with the screaming infant and her hot neighbor, Adrian, shows up at her door offering to help Vanessa finds herself on a trip she never imagined taking…a trip of possible love.
First and foremost, what I loved the most about Life’s Too Short was by far Vanessa and Adrian’s relationship. They were complete strangers that happened to be neighbors but they became so much more than that. I loved seeing how their relationship blossomed and became a solid friendship. They started to rely on each other and fall in love with Grace. But underneath all of this Vanessa is also living in fear of ALS. It is a fear she can’t make go away even if she tries to act like she doesn’t make decisions because of this. Everything Vanessa does is to run away from this fear.
All in all this was another solid romance from. the mind of Abby Jimenez. It took on a different vibe than The Friend Zone and The Happy Ever After Playlist, but it was just as amazing. It is a book that you will need to finish almost as soon as you start it and one you don’t want to miss!
