Fix You (Second Chances #1)
by Mari Carr (Goodreads Author)
Second Chances, Book 1
After too many years of secretly loving her best friend, Zoey realizes she’s been shortchanging herself. It’s time to take action. This New Year’s Eve heralds the year she’s going to tell Rob the truth. Even if he is on the road, reaching for musical stardom with his band.
Her plan is derailed when she discovers a lump in her breast—and it’s not “nothing to worry about”. How can she ask Rob to take a chance on love when her future is so uncertain?
Rob has spent his entire life chasing his dream, but the moment he hears Zoey’s voice on the phone, he realizes he’s been running the wrong race. Zoey never sounds like she’s been crying. Ever. Without a second thought, he books a flight for home, determined to give her everything she needs. A shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold…and nights of intensely emotional, passionate sex.
His biggest challenge, though, is convincing his best friend that he’s in it for the long haul. Because he finally knows what he wants, and it’s not fame and fortune. It’s her—and her love.
This book runs the emotional gamut between scorching-hot passion and the pain and fear associated with cancer. Keep a box of tissues next to your glass of ice water
So this book was really good but it was bad timing in when I read the book. I had just come off an extremely emotional book leaving a bit numb so when I read this I wasn't wrapped into the emotions as I think I would have been if I read it at a different time.
I loved that this was a combo of friends to lovers, rockstars and all around awesome guy. Love and a start of a relationship is hard at any time now lets throw a bought of Cancer in there and BOOM you are asking for emotions and doubt.
Being in love with your best friend is a special relationship and once Rob and Zoey were able to be together the sparks flew. Their relationship is deep, emotional and full of beauty.
I did love this book I felt it had a good combo of love, friendship, courage, strength, hope and happiness.
There is such beauty and seeing Rob's unconditional love and support for Zoey. If we ever have to go through something like that then someone like Rob is who we want in our corner.
