Kay's Review

In Another Life
This story broke my heart and healed it back up again.
What if you are about to die, by your own hands, and your life flashed in front of you. Not the life you've lived but the life you are yet to live. The one you are about to give up on, about the beautiful person you become and the wonderful person that gets to love you. Would it make you want to live your life again? Would you wish you had a second chance?
This is essentially the story of Shiloh and Travis. It's heart-breaking but it is also beautiful. I totally loved it.

Eight Days
Another angst filled story about family and friendship and love and finding out what really matters to you and going for it. Watching the relationship between Maccabe and Josh transition from childhood friendship to long-distance lovers was heart-tugging. I could relate to Josh's need for more but I also understood Maccabe's perspective. Loved this story.

This author is very much in my must-read list and this anthology of novellas didn't disappoint. 

WLK synopsis

At age eighteen, Shiloh Raben is tired. He no longer has the energy to deal with mean classmates, inner doubt, and fear of familial rejection, so he takes a razor to his wrist. When he wakes up in the hospital, Shiloh meets Travis Kahn, the EMT who saved him and didn’t leave his side. Travis is handsome, smart, and funny—the type of guy Shiloh would never be brave enough to approach. But his near-death experience has an unusual side effect: the life that flashed before his eyes wasn’t the one he had already lived, but rather the one he could live. With visions of a future by Travis’s side, Shiloh will find the strength to confront his fears and build a life worth fighting for. Word Count: 18,388 2nd Edition


Childhood family friends, Maccabe Fried and Josh Segal have always gotten along despite having nothing in common. Maccabe is an athlete with dreams of playing professional baseball. Josh is an aspiring architect with dreams of being with Maccabe. Despite all odds, both dreams come true. Maccabe and Josh fall into a long-distance romance, which is everything Josh thought he wanted. But after years of hiding from the world, Josh wants to bring their relationship into the open. When Maccabe refuses, Josh is faced with a tough decision: stay with the man he loves or live the life he deserves. No matter the choice, somebody’s bound to get hurt. Thankfully, in the season of miracles, there’s always hope for a happy ending. Word Count: 18,001
