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. Me.
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 seventeen.
Love found me when I was twenty-one.
My name is Aundrea McCall, and this is my journey.

What's Left Of Me is the debut novel from Amanda Maxlyn. Let me just say that I was captivated by this story from the very first word to the very last.
Amanda's way of writing draws you right into the story. I was able to feel every single emotion of Aundrea's. The sadness, the loneliness, the moments of helplessness, but there were also many moments of sweet, hope., and love.
Aundrea is a strong and determied young woman with an extremely strong will to live.
From the the beginning you live Aundrea's trials and tribulations, of living with cancer, being forced to move to a new city, new people, and new experiences.
Moving away from where her life is was the last thing Aundrea wanted to do, but life had other things in mind for Aundrea. And none of it is bad. One night out with friends ends up turning Aundrea's life upside down and his name is Parker.
Parker and Aundrea both have expectations from their encounter, and they are far from the same. These two characters have a vast amount of every kind of attraction to each other. Amanda's refreshing writing style has you falling head over heels in love with the one of a kind, sexy Parker.
WIth an amazing storyline, a slew of dynamic characters, just the right amount of banter, and throw in a good load of angst you have a brilliant recipe for one helluva read. What's Left Of Me made me fall in love, ripped my heart out, put it back together, and then tore it back out and stomped the shit out of it, and that's all I can tell you for now.
What's Left Of Me gets a true 5 star rating from me. If I could give 10 it still wouldn't be enough.
Amanda Maxlyn, you knocked my books off with this read. I personally can't wait to see what else comes from that brilliant mind of yours. And readers if you haven't read yet, then what the hell are you waiting for?! Hurry, hurry, hurry, and then share your thoughts!
Cheers to a job well done Amanda!
