“Dealing with your own terminal illness is easier than telling your best friend that you’re in love with her. Just sayin’.” – Regina Callahan

Reggie Callahan has come to terms with her prognosis of less than a year to live. She’s been dealing with it all summer thanks to blacking out and falling off her horse back home in Wisconsin. Instead of starting her junior year, she’s only back at New York University to tie up loose ends. One of them is breaking the news to her childhood friend, actress and model, Desi St. Clair. For Reggie, telling her that she is sick, and leaving the city is harder than learning you’re going to die.

Until Desi kisses her.

This isn’t a story about gender preference or about living with cancer. Plain and simple, it’s about love and what people are willing to endure to live without regrets and savor every moment.

Michelle's Review

This was not my first F/F story.  I have read a few and the one I have read were quite spicy.  If that is what you are looking for here, well will have to seek somewhere else, but why would you?  This is a beautiful love story, and I want you to read it.  Have a box of tissues besides you though.

Reggie Callahan and Desi St. Clair have been BFFs since childhood.  So when Desi got accepted to NYU, instead of going to Julliard, Reggie also goes to NYU.  Reggie has always had an unrequited love for Desi, loving her from afar.  While Desi is still a student at NYU, she is an upcoming model, she is so well known that she is also asked to be on the TV and movie screen.

Reggie has to leave school and the love of her life.  Reggie and Desi have never kept secrets from each other, but this one secret Reggie has been holding may crush their relationship.  Reggie is very sick and besides the fact that she needs to go back home to Wisconsin and then start a vigorous treatment, she also will be leaving the only true love she has ever had.  Desi finally gets it out of Reggie as to why she is leaving to NY.  Desi takes that opportunity to reveal her true feelings for Reggie.  Reggie, of course, is shocked!  Here she thought she would be pining away for Desi, when all along Desi was also in love with her.  They make a pact to always be truthful with one another and make a go of their relationship.  Although Desi has working obligations, she makes sure she there for Reggie.

My heart was hurting so much for Reggie and the treatments that she had to endure.  I felt her pain throughout the pages.  Even her insecurities about her life was up front and center.  Yet, Desi’s love for her was just so beautiful.  I was pulling for them.  I wanted Reggie and Desi to have their HEA.  I needed that for them.

This is my first time reading anything from S.V.C.  I was emotionally spent after reading this book.  I had so many tears afterwards.  Like I mentioned earlier, although this is a F/F story, it was so beautiful to read.  I know I cannot due justice with my review for this book.  You have to read it for yourself and have the feels like I did.  Just writing this review, I still have the feels.  Oh and I adored Reggie’s parents.  Anyone who is gay, would want parents like Reggie’s parents.  They are so loving, accepting and absolutely adorable!

On a personal note, S.V.C. is funny, witty and has some kick ass B&W photos everyday on Facebook  Hit her page up, she will tag you with some nice eye candy throughout the day.  Of course, I am constantly yelling at her to go write her other work in progress.  Thank you S.V.C. for letting me read your beautiful novella.  I cannot wait to read your next book.  Just warn me ahead of time if I need to invest in some more wine and tissue lol.

I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes, Reggie to Desi:  “You fill the grey with light and love, so much it blinds me.  Loving you surround me and fees my strength.  My desire to see the next dawn with you and witness the stars grace the black lace sky knows no limits.”
