Blog Tour: A Taylor-Made Life by Kary Rader (Review + Giveaway)

A Taylor-Made Life Blog Tour & Giveaway

They lived the life they were given; they loved the life they made.

Cheerleader Taylor Smith doesn’t want to die a virgin. Unfortunately, if the terminally-ill leukemia patient doesn't find a lover or a stem-cell match within months, her fear will become reality. When her cancer mentor is revealed to be a hottie entrepreneur from California, it seems fate might finally be on her side.
Tech-geek Gavin Taylor has everything he ever wanted, except someone to grieve for him when he's gone. With his melanoma cancer beyond the help of his riches, he agrees to participate in a cancer patient mentoring program where he's matched with a dying teen from Texas. Despite his immediate attraction, the Silicon Valley whiz intends only to provide friendship and happy memories to the beautiful, young woman who is determined to win his love.
When it's discovered that his frozen sperm and her harvested eggs could lead to a cure, Taylor's mother offers to be a surrogate. And Gavin must decide if he can risk the heart he has never given and a child he'll never know to a girl he just met.

An absolutely amazing story of hope and new beginnings...

I'm completely in love with this story, it's even hard for me to type a review of it without getting emotional. Reading this heartbreaking story of Taylor and Gavin, has really made me think twice about the things that I have in my life, this story is not just about two people trying to overcome death, but instead is a story full of hope and opportunities. When I was approached to read this book, I immediately jumped in to the opportunity. Knowing what the story was about didn't prepare me for what was coming. Right from the very start I was immediately pulled into the story all the way to the very end. Kary Rader does an unbelievable job of describing what the characters are going through and she makes the experience that much more heartbreaking. 

Taylor's character is funny, and strong. She is a girl that doesn't give up apart from all the things that she has been through. On the other hand, Gavin is a handsome billionaire who loves gaming and is not ready to leave this world without having made something special behind. Both characters suffer and have the best moments in their lives. They both empower each other and that's what makes the story successful. The flow of the story and the details made the story a true love story in my eyes. The ending was emotional, but it really demonstrated the love that these characters have for one another. This quote “They lived the life that they were given: they loved the life they made” truly shows the overall meaning to the book. I would recommend everyone to read this story, you will not regret it.
