REVIEW

 

“Prove your existence. That’s your new motto to live by. What did you do today to prove your existence, what are you doing tomorrow to prove your existence in this world?”

This book was very special. It was definitely a departure from Meghan Quinn’s funny, quirky, romantic comedies but it was so worth the read. It was different in the best kind of way. Dear Life is the story of Jace, Hollyn, Daisy and Carter. Four very special people that have been dealt a bad hand in live and when we meet them are just trying to exist, not live. They don’t know each other in the beginning but their lives are somehow interconnected. The four of them find themselves participating in the Dear Life program. An anonymous program that consist of steps and letters and provide the tools to make life changes that will help them “prove their existence”.

 

As the book progresses, the 4 of them form a unique bond and you can see how their lives just transform. It’s not all rainbows and butterflies with this one, some of these characters have suffered some huge losses and basically have to learn how to live again.

 

“You’re never going to be fully ready, Hollyn. You’re just going to have to close your eyes and jump. Trust in your strength and the strength in the people around you.”

 

It’s really hard to explain and put into words what is all about. I was interested and mesmerized the entire time. More than a romance, this book is inspirational and more than anything hopeful. Meghan takes you through this amazing journey with these four characters and you can’t help but being totally invested in their lives.

 

“I felt the pull between us, like our beings were trying to attach themselves together.”

 

I loved all 4 characters; they were so different yet similar. I loved the bond that was formed between the 4 of them and also the bond that was formed separately between the 2 main couples. I will say that out of the 4 I loved Daisy and Carter the most. Carter was probably my favorite of the 4.

 

“She’s sunshine and rainbows; I’m rainclouds and puddles.”

I loved the entire book, the writing was simply amazing and even though it’s more serious than Meghan’s usual books, her signature quirkiness is ever present. The one thing I would’ve loved was an epilogue. I would’ve loved to catch up with their lives in the future, but that’s just my preference, I love epilogues. If you’re looking for something different, inspirational and full of feels, then this is definitely the book for you!

 

“My life has been silent for so long and then you came along and brought music, lightness, and a brief glimpse of happiness into it.”

About Meghan Quinn

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
