Blog Tour Review with Giveaway: TODAY ONLY by D. Love






Today Only

by: D. Love



Synopsis:


 In life, there are times you are granted a miracle. It may not be the one you wanted exactly, but it will be the one you need. It will prepare you for the next step in your journey and help you learn to accept the life you are given, even if that life can be heartbreaking.


Review:

Star Rating: 3.5 out of 5

Heat Rating: Tame


Words can't describe what my heart felt like after reading this book, I was devastated and uplifted at the same time.  Today Only was an inspirational story about how we should live our life to the fullest while remembering to let in love and beauty.  It is not just a simple romance story between Rye and Jett, there is a much bigger message that comes out while reading this book.  A message about living for Today Only.

Today Only was a beautiful story, it is not the type of story I usually read and honestly I probably never would have picked it up if I had not been asked to read it. However, I am glad that I did read it and get the chance to read about Rye and Jett, this story and the message that goes with it will stay with me for a long while.

D. Love's story will make you cry, make you laugh, give you hope, teach you how to let go and leave you with a sense of peace, if not understanding.  Get your tissues ready, you are going to need them.

*This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review*


Excerpts:



I cross to the area that Jett has claimed for his garden. He appears to be in the zone as he works, oblivious to everything.
"Good morning," I call. 
Jett throws dirt in the air and screams like Em. 
"Good grief! You scared me to death, Rye!" he exclaims, turning.
I try to apologize but am laughing so hard, my ribs start hurting. I sit down. When his surprise wears off, Jett laughs as well. It takes me a few minutes to recover.
"So, tell me, Jett," I say when I’m able to breathe and speak again, "what is the importance of a garden?" 
"It’s the healthy way to live," is all he says. 
"Hmmmm," I reply. There’s got to be more. Any other day, I’d probably ask him more questions. But right now, I’m completely captivated by his work – and his body. He’s always in a t-shirt. Sweat makes it cling to his upper body, outlining the muscles of his wide back. 
Tracing the definition of each muscle would take me all day, but I would definitely accept the job. He’s the sexiest man I’ve ever seen, and the kindest. He’s pretty much perfect.
"You wanna help me, or just stare at my ass all day?" he asks, twisting to see me.
