We are happy to share in the release of Morgan Parker’s SICK DAY. Be sure to check out my review and the excerpt. There’s a giveaway too for signed copies of Morgan’s books.
“I believe that if someone says he loves you more than air, he’s lying to you.”
Hope and Cameron made a five-year promise before college. Years pass and they never see each other again. But then one month before his planned wedding to Riley, Cameron looks outside and sees Hope in the pouring rain, watching him.
Now, three years later, Cam has one day – a sick day on this last Friday of summer – to convince the one woman whose very existence breaths life into his lungs, that sometimes love like theirs actually does exist, and it’s that kind of love that lives forever, no matter how hard you fight to forget about it and move on.
From the author of non friction and Hope, Sick Day follows one man’s day-long attempt to persuade the love of his life that sometimes it’s okay to break promises if it means keeping the ones that count.
Very well written. Lovely story! Super romantic and I totally fell in love with Cameron. I do have to admit that Hope was not my favorite till later in the story. But she redeemed herself in the end.
I have read from this author before so I knew that I was not going to be disappointed.
The story did confuse me a bit in the beginning because I was wondering why other characters from his previews books were mentioned but then I understood.
The story goes back and forth from past to present and you really have to pay attention or you might get confused.
Cameron~ my fave, he was sweet and funny and romantic. He does cheat on Riley with Hope, so keep in mind in case you do not like stories that include cheating. I don’t mind, specially when the main characters were soul mates and they really belong with each other.
Hope~ she was not my fave like I said but then I really liked her and I knew she was the one for Cameron. I really liked the Hope from the past. Of course she comes back as the story ends.
Riley~ I really liked her and when you read about how Cameron and her meet you can’t help but to fell sorry for her because she was really nice and perfect.
Gordon~ Cameron’s best friend, he really was something else and kind of an acquired taste. But he was funny and made the story interesting.
There were a few more characters but those were my fave.
I really loved how the author ended the story and I won’t spoil the ending but I will say that it made me cry, a lot.
I will mention one part that totally had me laughing out loud, this is when we are on a very super hot and steam scene:
She let out a soft moan. “Cameron…” she pleaded.
“I want to lick your face,” I said, the words slipping out of my mouth without my knowledge.
Right in the middle of an awesome scene…
So if you like steam in your stories this one has it, just be warned, you might laugh like I did.
I will recommend this book to anyone that likes a good romance.
“Don’t make me go home tonight,” I begged.
When her eyes found mine again, she nodded. I didn’t know what it meant, though. Was she nodding because I had to go home, or did she want me to stick around?
“Talk to me,” I begged.
“I can’t,” she whispered. “If I talk, I’ll lose everything I came here for.”
When I opened my mouth and started to speak, she placed a finger over my lips to silence me.
Leaning forward, she brought her mouth to my ear, and in a broken whisper, she asked, “Take me back to the hotel. Love me. Remember me. And then tell me whether or not you exist for me.”
“I don’t need to make love to you to know that, Hope. All I need is to take a breath of you.”
“Then breathe me, all of me,” she begged. “In my hotel room.”
