Katie and Adam are afraid of love.
She carries the scars of a first kiss gone terribly wrong.
He uproots his life to flee the stinging betrayal of an ex.
When trust is no longer an option, all romance is suspect.
As a young paramedic, Adam rescues people for a living but cannot save himself. Katie, just out of high school, struggles with a tortured home life she cannot escape.
Everything changes when Katie hops into the front seat of Adam’s ambulance. Overwhelmed by what they are feeling, neither possess the confidence to make the first move. They walk away from each other, full of regret.
To find her, Adam risks his future. To be with him, Katie sacrifices her security.
Little do they know, what little time they do have, is being measured by a heartbeat that is slowly dying out.
My Thoughts ❤
This book was exactly what I needed… how many of you have a grandparent that means the world to you? How many of you have lost a person that has had your back since before you existed? What happens when they are gone? What happens when your grandmother is no longer there to protect you from your father?
When Katie and her grandmother are in a car accident, they are rescued by the local EMT’s, what Katie doesn’t know that Adam, the EMT, is her heartbeat.
Personally this book spoke volumes to me, my Pawpaw is my life, he’s one that I speak to are see every day & have since the day I was born, and currently he is coming to his final days. He will be 97 next Saturday. When I began this book and Katie and her grandmother had an accident, all I could do was think about him and our relationship. Katie and her grandmother are like my Pawpaw and I. The only difference is that I have great parents unlike Katie.
Katie is a dreamer, especially when it comes to guys. She knows she can’t get close to them, so she doesn’t. That is until she meets Adam. He has been burned by his ex, and is trying to make something of himself. What he doesn’t know is that he is exactly what Katie needs.
Adam is defiantly not an alpha male like in some books, he’s not even the guy you had a crush on in middle school. He’s just an average guy… really tall, but just a guy. What is different about him is his ability help others, and what he does for Katie is above any other character I have read so far.
This book was fabulous! I started it and couldn’t put it down. It will have you thinking none stop about the people in your life, what is important, and what makes your heartbeat?
