My Review

From a story book romance, to a perfect wedding, to a dream job and beautiful twin sons, Jayson and Chloe have the perfect life, and a love that can survive anything. Or do they? Jayson is working long hours to finish residency as an emergency room doctor and Chloe is left alone with their two-year-old twin sons… and her thoughts. When this life that most dream of starts to crumble around them, will their love and connection be strong enough to make it through?

This is Living is the follow-up novella to To Live Again, and book 1.5 in The Living Series. In this story, we catch up with Chloe and Jayson 9 years later. After reading and loving To Live Again I was so excited to find out that there was more to Chloe and Jayson’s story. Ms. Dawn has created in Chloe, Jayson, and the supporting characters like Connor and Madison (Jayson’s twin brother and Chloe’s best friend) and Phillip and Ava (Jayson’s parents), real people that you want to get to know better. They are not your typical romance novel billionaires with no struggles or issues, where everything they’ve ever wanted comes easily. They have to fight hard to get what they want and as a result, are stronger for it. Their lives are filled with happy times, love, loss, accusations, anger, but in the end, their sense of family is what will bring them the healing they need.

This novella is packed with everything you could ever want in a love story. There is happiness, sadness, laughter, anger, tears, despair for loss, and hope for the future. I definitely felt the full range of emotions while reading. There were times I laughed out loud and times I needed several tissues to get through. The story was not only emotion provoking, but thought provoking as well. It will have you thinking about what is most important in life and remind you that you need to make the most of every day because you never know when the things you treasure most will slip away.

I give This is Living a very emotional 5 stars!
