10 Hours, Melissa Toppen

I don’t know how I stumbled upon this book, but I borrowed it in KU and I’m so glad I did. Here’s my review:

When Finley left North Carolina to escape her junkie mother over a year ago, she never looked back. Only now, she’s learned she has a brain tumor, it’s cancer and in two days they’re going to operate to remove it. The odds aren’t in her favor, they’re only giving her a 30% chance of survival. She’s not ready to tell her sister Claire, the only person she really has in this world. So after hours of wandering, she finds herself in a bar. It doesn’t matter that she’s only 19, she just knows she needs to go in.

There she meets Abel, and over the next 10 hours, a connection is built. One that each of them knows is the link that completes them. But scared she’s going to die, Finley walks away leaving Abel desperate to find her.

Tissues, you’re going to need tissues because once the tears start, they aren’t going to stop. This is so well-written, I love Finley and Abel together, and I love their relationship. I found myself highlighting so many things one of them said to the other that just hit me, this is only one: “She blinds me with a light I feel like I’ve spent my whole life searching for.” *swoon*. Such a great read!

You can read my review on Amazon, Goodreads, and Bookbub, and if you’ve enjoyed it, give it a “like”. Grab 10 Hours for yourself on Amazon for $3.99, it’s enrolled in KU.
