  • Poignant

    A poignant and gut wrenching story of a deep and abiding love. Lauren is a caregiver of some of the sickest patients. She is compassionate and dedicated to her job and the people under her care. She is a great friend and a loving daughter. Andrew is a loving son, brother and friend. He is a final year law student with a cancer diagnosis. All he wants to do is be able to help people get justice. These two meeting set of a chain of events that will bring tears to your eyes and sometimes a smile to your face. I especially enjoyed the pun game they played and his big boisterous family. This is a great first book for the author and I can see her doing great things in the future.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Wonderful Love Story!

    Firstly, I would like to thank author Allison Ashley, Entangled Publishing, and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of this book. This book was so, so sweet. It grabbed my heart from the very beginning and held it the whole way through. You will find yourself following a young couple, Andrew and Lauren, who start a very fragile and delicate relationship. I can tell you right now, I was rooting for them so hard. 😂 This story really touched upon so many aspects that I have experienced in my life, which brought me even closer to the storyline. Allison was not afraid as the author to show the not so pretty side of cancer, and I cannot applaud her enough for that. It was refreshing to see things fully explained and understood from a medical standpoint. The color of this cover and the waiting room chairs caught my eye, and I jumped immediately at the chance to read something involving the medical field. Books in this setting are so difficult to find; especially well written ones. You will find yourself thinking, is this really the first book she’s written!? It is so well versed and sits at the level of an author who has years upon years under their belt. I cannot wait to see what the literary world has in store for Allison Ashley, because I believe her future is so bright! I can’t wait for more books from this author, and please be sure to snag a copy on March 23, 2020. You won’t regret it!! 🔬🩹🩺💊💉🩸🦠🧫🧪🌡

  • Impeccable writing and a totally wonderful story

    Wow. Couldn’t believe that this is a debut author. The writing is impeccable and a totally wonderful story and characters. The story touches on quite a few social mores including harassment at work (Lauren’s co-worker who works his way thru all the female staff and can’t handle that Lauren isn’t interested), both Lauren’s and Andrew’s strained relationship with their respective fathers, and of course cancer and the impact it has on a relationship and life; both the patient and the caregivers. So much all wonderfully bundled in the romance that is Lauren and Andrew. L & A have a rather inauspicious 1st meeting when she accidentally spills her coffee over him. That introduce us to L’s cute way of “non” swearing – which instantly charms A, of course. Volunteering at a children’s hospital, L has the most amusing way of watching her words. When they meet again at the cancer center where L works, A is so distracted by L that he hardly hears all the instructions she gives him on his upcoming chemo and the possible side effects. Both are attracted but after a bad experience during college with a handsome jock who only used her to pass his chemistry paper while pretending to be interested in her, L is understandably wary of good looking men, A being a prime example of one who is drop dead gorgeous. A is determined tho (love that in a guy) and perseveres and a friendship quickly blossoms between the two. Both agree to keep things platonic while A is still undergoing therapy but of course... *winks*. Love the sexual tension – this is a clean story (kisses only) but intensely romantic, all the more so IMHO without any explicit sex which would have spoilt the whole book – which wasn’t angsty or over done in any way. And mygosh the humour – L is a pun extraordinaire & every so often they get into a battle of puns. And yes, it definitely has a happy ending, wonderfully poignant all the way through and I cried buckets. This book has all the feels. I can’t wait to read this author’s next book.

  • five-star read will leave you perfectly distracted

    Perfect Distraction by Allison Ashley a five-star read that will leave you perfectly distracted. This is my first read from this author, but I will be looking for more as the puns make it all worth it. I love a good pun, and this was inspiring, its not the only fantabulous aspect to this story though, as the romance is top notch and the meet cute delightful as its not as perfect as it could be, its real. The main subject of this story isn’t an easy one for most and I will be honest right now it probably isn’t the best subject for me personally as Cancer affects one in three of us in some way, and right now I am that one. That being said I am so glad I didn’t pass this one up and decided to see the other side as it showed me there can be positivity even in the darkest of moments. Such as when a girl with the name of a pretty flower blooms for the last time, colour and beauty can still be seen. Andrew Bishop faces his greatest challenge, but he faces it with his best side and what a side it is. I will be keeping a big eye out of Allison Ashley as the writing is funny and honest and will warm you from the inside out as it’s an eggcellent read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Sweet, emotional read!

    Sweet, emotional read! Here's the blurb: Lauren Taylor isn't thinking about love, especially not with the impossibly attractive man she accidentally spilled coffee all over. He's out of her league and she's focused on finishing her oncology pharmacy residency. She's sworn off men who are too handsome for their own good, anyway. Andrew Bishop can't stop thinking about the gorgeous redhead who crashed into him and then disappeared, even though he should have way more on his mind - like dealing with his Hodgkin Lymphoma diagnosis and finishing out his last year in law school. When Andrew and Lauren run into each other at the cancer center where she's working and he's being treated, they try to keep it professional. They can be friends, and nothing more. But sometimes life has other plans… This book was a sweet slow-burn. They spend most of the book getting to know each other and slowly falling in love. They face a few obstacles. Like her job. Their individual feelings of insecurities. His illness. Trying to not move beyond friendship. Their PUN war was pretty funny. Overall this book was great. Definitely worth checking out. ARC provided by Entangled Publishing via NetGalley.

    Thanks for your feedback!
