The heartwarming conclusion to What's Left of Me.
 Love found me three years ago.
 I’m cancer free, happily married to the love of my life, and working toward my dream career.
 Our life is complete. Perfect, really.
 Or is it?

I’ve always wanted a family of my own, but never dreamed I could have one. Now Parker’s ready to make my dream our reality. But sometimes our dreams are haunted by our deepest fears. Fears of failure, having a child, and in our case … death. How do I help the person I love get over his fear when I’m still trying to overcome that same fear myself?

Together we must learn What’s Left of Us.


Back in March I purchased ticket to go to Romance Riot in NYC...I only knew of a few authors that would be there, but I made it my GOAL, to try and read at least one book from each author. So prior to heading to NYC,  I downloaded  WHAT'S LEFT OF ME...and she got me...I couldn't wait to read the next step in Parker and Aundrea's love story.

When the opportunity came about to get an ARC of this book, I was ecstatic.   Amanda was so gracious to allow me this opportunity and I will forever be thankful for reading this book.

I am a reader, I read about 2-3 books a week.  I have read so many books that all meld together in my head but this book, has seared my heart and mind.

With the past they had that's all I wanted was a happily ever after for Aundrea and Parker.  But what I love about this book is that isn't not ALL unicorns and puppy dogs.  It's raw, it's honest and I think Amanda has left a piece of her heart in this book.

In What's Left of Me, we find that Parker is so in love with Aundrea but in this book, his LIFE is Aundrea.

"Aundrea, I was taught that when you find the person you're meant to be with, you should do everything in your power to keep them.  spend every day of your life proving to them that they're worth it.  Your're always by my side, helping me, wanting to protect me, and showing me that I can be the best man possible.  Together, we've started to build a life that means something to us, and I want the next chapter of it to start here,"

Aundrea is a strong woman who has been through so much.  Unfortunately, life isn't always fair.  She is often unsure of her strength, but with Parker by her side, she can do anything and survive anything.

"I've lived a life that would make anyone afraid.  Afraid of life, love - even hope.  There is nothing I've faced that I didn't think I could overcome. Until now..."

I hope everyone gets a chance to read this book and see that real love exists in books.  It's not insta-love, all sex, all the time.  Don't get me wrong, Parker and Aundrea have some steamy scenes but it's not what this book is ALL about.  Thank you again Amanda for sharing your love for Parker and Aundrea and giving us this amazing, thoughtful and beautiful story,

So, people, PLEASE take the time to read this beautiful conclusion to an amazing love story. 

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

An ARC was received for an honest review.

About the Author: 

I am the mother of two little boys, married to the love of my life, and living in one of the smallest towns in Minnesota. When I’m not chasing or cleaning up after my boys (yes, all three), I can be found writing or snuggled up with my kindle, a glass of wine, and spending time with my fictional friends and family.
I am first and foremost an avid reader! I love to read anything romance from paranormal, young/new adult, contemporary, and even yes, (wide eyes) erotic/BDSM.
