Life works in mysterious ways. Four years ago, I became known as the girl with cancer. I refuse to cry. And I refuse to give in. A relationship with a man is the last thing I'm looking for right now, but one night with Parker changes everything. He is persistent, and he knows what he wants. He doesn't treat me like I'm fragile. But he doesn't know, and I'm not ready to tell him.
What if it changes everything? Tragedy found me when I was 17. Love found me when I was 21. My name is Aundrea McCall, and this is my journey.
Contains mature themes.

"What's Left of Me is an incredibly powerful, sexy and touching love story that will always hold a place in my heart." (Flirty and Dirty Book Blog)
This book really opened my eyes regarding life with cancer. I was sad, happy, and a bit crazy at times listening to it. If your looking for a good story then this book is for you but be prepared for some tears.
I loved the story, either the author did some fantastic homework or she knows chronic pain herself. I am 11 years into several incurable injuries and illnesses and know exactly what it's like to live day to day with it so I can say she hit the nail on the head there, I loved the thought of having someone that would love you unconditionally like that, but I believe the sex scenes could be toned down, I wouldn't let anyone under 18 read this book for that reason alone. I'm sure this story will stay on my mind for quite a long time.
Lets be real. Given the synopsis, hopes for a happy ending are slim...that being said, The passion in this book and its characters make you feel like you are living this journey with them. So painful at times and at others incredibly beautiful. This book has the "feels". Highly recommend this book. This book does contain some explicit situates and I would not recommended it for young readers.
Overall, beautifully written.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started listening to this book. Would it take the subject of serious illness and somehow paint a rosy ending or would it go for reality -- HEA be damned?
Happily, at least from my point of view, it went towards reality, until the end, when the author looses her courage and turns things into a dream. Of course, in order to make this a series, that had to happen, but it was still a disappointment.
