When Annie Daschle arrives in New York City, the only thing she can control is her list. Not her father’s death or the loss of her home. Not the hole in her heart or the defective valve that’s dictated so much of her life. But she can put pen to paper to make a list of all the ways she can live out loud, just like her dad would have wanted. See the city from the top of the Empire State Building: Check. Eat hot dogs on the steps of The Met: Check. Stand in the middle of Times Square: Check. Get a job at Wasted Words: Check. Two things not on her list: Greg Brandon and Will Bailey. And just like that, she finds herself caught in the middle of something she can’t find her way out of, with no clear answers and no rules. List or no list, she realizes she can’t control anything at all, not even her heart. Not the decisions it makes, and not the moment it stops.
*Standalone contemporary romance Inspired by Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility.*
This was a beautiful sweet romantic feel-good story that left me feeling all fuzzy inside.
Annie has led a very restricted life due to her health when the family moves to New York she is determined to live her life to the fullest. Her father's death has spurned her into making a list of everything she’s missed out on, some big some small.
The story is poignant, Annie and her family are all trying to adjust to the change in their circumstances whilst grieving. Apart from Annie who was my favourite character little Meg was just adorable and I loved how her inquisitive nature was never stifled.
This is a gentle coming of age story about a young woman finding her way in the world. We go on a journey with Annie as she asserts her independence with all the pitfalls life can throw at you. A story about family, life, and love that will leave you smiling.
Living Out Loud is a beautifully uplifting story. The idea in the title alone leaves me smiling. Staci Hart has once again managed to seduce the reader. She lures you in with a tale that can't help but be read. She teases you with the building emotions and the naivete of a young girl. But she steals your heart with the amazing Brandon...Greg Brandon.
For all the Sense and Sensibility lovers out there, you won't be disappointed in the least. For all those afraid to read the classic, this is a beautifully written redesign that will satisfy your curiosity.
Living Out Loud is a sweet and timeless story.
