“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.

Reggie Callahan has so much that she want to tell her best friend. She wants to tell her why she looks so frail these days and that is the reason that she is being forced to leave school. She also wants to tell her that she has been in love with her every since she can remember.
Desi St. Clair has been everything to Reggie for most of her life. Desi is now a promising model/actress with a full schedule and the times that they get to see each other are becoming fewer. But this time, Reggie is determined to make it count.
“A sliver of life, that’s all I’ve been afforded. My heartbeat, my breath, and my dreams. Then again, I think they don’t actually belong to me; they belong to her. She is the everything that fills the space between my delirium and all that is tangible. She is the reason I wake every morning. She is why I must survive this. It is not hope that grows; it is a desperation to never be without her. Before her proclamation, I was good with my fate. But now, here with her, I want to fight it with every last bit of me.”
Reggie never dreamed that Desi could love her back. Not only does she love her, but she is going to do everything she can to help her fight to stay alive. Because now that they have finally found each other, nothing can stand in their way.
"Love is both hard and soft. It is the most believable truth and fiction. It is something we fight for and fight with. It is the yin and yang. It is the most contradictory of emotions, making you believe in both the extraordinary existence of heaven and scorches of hell. If you allow it, a saturation of complexities can destroy it and leave you desperately choking for the remnants, clawing for a miniscule flake of ash of what you had. True love is a rare miracle held in the highest veneration . Blessed are those who even come close its illumination. Only those who are selflessly brave can become victorious and claim this exceptional phenomenon, if just for a memory in time."

Exclusive Excerpt -
THE FOLLOWING MORNING IS molasses of silence. Desi didn’t come to bed last night, and I surmise she slept in a guestroom when I wake alone.
