Leukemia’s been my life since I was eleven. Now, six years later, I want my life back. Only I’m not sure what that is. The test results came back today. 22,000. Which means I’m officially out of remission—again. I have three options:
1) Another round of chemo.
2) A super-new experimental drug.
3) Dump it all— forget the meds and treatments and enjoy the time I have left.
I think I know what I want. Then, in walks Damian, changing everything.
I mean, everything…
He’s got his own set of issues. It binds us together, you know? We understand what it’s like to lose what matters most in seconds. Still, the last thing I need is to have someone else to crush if I can’t fight hard enough. And the last thing he needs is someone else to grieve.
Never mind. I’m down to two options now.
Somehow I know that whichever one I choose, the result will be the same. With the sand in my hourglass seeping to the bottom, I hope there’s enough left to show Damian that life’s worth living.
Worth fighting for. Worth dying for.

Love Always, Kate is a heart-wrenching story, which will shatter your heart into a million pieces, leaving you gasping for breath.
I knew from the synopsis I would be a quivering mess but call me glutton for punishment. I was drawn into the storyline I had to read it, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
What can I say about Kate, she's an inspiration. She's strong, COURAGEOUS and admirable. I wanted to take her pain away.
Damian, my heart broke for him on more than one occasion. He's been through a lot and is barely surviving. Even though Damian is rough around the edges from all the tragedy he's endured, Boy, didn't catch my heart.
An amazing read, but you will need a box of tissues.
