Review: A Taylor Made Life by Kary Rader

They lived the life they were given; they loved the life they made.

Cheerleader Taylor Smith doesn't want to die a virgin. Unfortunately, if the terminally-ill leukemia patient doesn't find a lover or a stem-cell match within months, her fear will become reality.

Tech-geek Gavin Taylor has everything he ever wanted, except someone to grieve for him when he’s gone. With his melanoma cancer beyond the help of his riches, he agrees to participate in a cancer patient mentoring program where he’s matched with a dying teen from Texas.

Despite his immediate attraction, the Silicon Valley whiz intends only to provide friendship to the beautiful young woman who is determined to win his love. When he discovers that his frozen sperm and her harvested eggs could lead to a cure, Taylor’s mother offers to be a surrogate.

And Gavin must decide if he can risk the heart he has never given and a child he’ll never know to a girl he just met.

After reading the blurb for this book I knew it was going to be sad, but OMG I spent about the last 20% of this book blubbering like a baby. My poor husband had no idea what was wrong. When i told him it was just a sad book he was like 'well stop reading' I replied with a 'No i have to know what happens.'

And that is the beauty of this book it is just so hard to put down.  I'll admit at the start I found the alternating 1stPOV and 3rdPOV chapters a little frustrating but by about half way through I didn't even notice it any more.

There are definitely some hard to deal with topics in this book but they a written in such a compassionate manner that your find yourself cheering Gavin and Taylor on. 

If you don't mind a tear jerker i would definitely recommend this book 4 out of 5
