Blurb:

They say there are five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.

Not everyone will grieve in this order, nor will everyone go through every stage. It’s during the stage of denial when Alex Hart meets Andrew Foster. He takes her one-step closer to acceptance: the stage when new, meaningful relationships are formed. The stage when the realization occurs that this is now the new state of normal.

Just when Alex thinks she is on her way to healing, she enters the bargaining phase. That’s the phase where you wonder what you could have done differently. You wonder “what if?” Specifically, what if the ones you loved hadn’t left you?

Leaving…this is what makes heading off to war so difficult and frightening for Alex. She knows all too well what it’s like to be the one on the losing end of life, which is why she’s made it her personal mission in life to save as many lives as possible. The extreme high she gets from treating trauma victims turns into Alex’s own form of therapy, or so she thinks.

When faced with her world being turned upside down, Alex may just find that her true therapy is in the one who has always saved her.

Brittany's Review
I was given this ARC to read for an honest review. Have to admit, I dove straight into this book without reading what it was about so had no clue what I was in for, but wow. This book was Great! I have read so many books that I have loved for so many different reasons, but the one thing that I loved about this book, was the fact that it sucked me in and brought out my emotional side. It was as if I were there feeling exactly what Alex was feeling.
There are few books that I have found my self shedding tears for but this book did just that and not once. I found myself crying multiple times but yet smiling just as many times afterwards. I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster but in the best way possible. Personally, I think an author who is able to write a book that can make the reader feel as if they are feeling what the characters feel, and actually pull our (us the readers) emotions out of us, is an amazing writer and Author.
This book is about a young girl who goes through tragedy multiple times throughout her life, but always finds a way to pull herself together and continue on with her head held high.
Alex learns to love so deep is feels as if it couldn't be real, yet loses the love she shares in more than one way in her life. I don't want to share too much about the book because I think reading this book, you should just dive in without any expectations to get a full experience.
This was an absolutely amazing read, and I highly recommend it to others. Be prepared for heartache, love, compassion, and so much more when reading this story!

I give this book 5 Amazing Stars!!
