Carry Me Through by Brooke McBride
Series: The Carried; Book 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Who hits on someone in the chemo room? Me, apparently. But, this was a first even for me. I don’t fall in love. I don’t pine over women. I planned on going to the grave a proud bachelor.
She should have come with a warning label. She was feisty, distant and secretive. Too gorgeous by any standards. Too headstrong for my taste. Too much like me.
I ignored the warning signs and dove in headfirst. but despite our love, she was holding back. She had a secret that could be the end of her. And us.
I promised I would be there for her. Little did I know, life would hold me to that.
Would the love I have for her be enough to carry me through?
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
I am so glad I read this book! I can’t believe Brooke McBride is a relatively new author. Not only was this story fantastic, the characters were wonderfully developed, the story was plotted beautifully, flowed at exactly the right pace and there is not a single thing I would change about it. Carry Me Through is not your typical romance. It’s not just a story about a guy who meets a girl who is dying of cancer. It’s an amazing story about loving with all your heart, of letting go even when you want to hold on tightly, and finding the strength to be selfless when every fiber of your body is shouting to be selfish. And that special, pure, life-altering kind of love that will carry you through even the darkest of days.
Lin and Colt’s story is one that I won’t soon forget. I practically read the entire thing — 55 of the 60 chapters — during this covid Thanksgiving when I had extra time on my hands. I could not put it down. Literally, I was reading it on my Kindle app while cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my family. Carry Me Through is a remarkable story. Caitlin may not have been Colt’s forever, but he was hers for the short time they had together.
I was not prepared for how much I would love this story, how much I would sob over Lin and Colt… but I am so glad I took a chance on reading it!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
