#NewRelease #Reviews LIKE THERE'S NO TOMORROW by Linnea Valle @LinneaAuthor

Cover by The Final Wrap

When it comes to tomorrow…there are no guarantees

Emma, Eddie, and Zach. Best Friends. They were inseparable.

U n t i l  t h e y  w e r e n ’ t.

The three had grown up together, thick as thieves, friends until the end… well, with a minor exception. Emma had been in love with Zach for as long as she could remember. But it was one-sided.

U n t i l  i t  w a s n ’ t.

Then life changed. Emma started her first year of college and Zach and Eddie signed up to serve their country together, heading off to war. Life wasn’t quite fair. Emma’s hopes for a life between her and Zach dwindled with the distance and the passage of time. But there was still hope.

U n t i l  t h e r e  w a s n ’ t.

The unthinkable happened. After all… there was a war. And the three became two. Zach and Emma were left broken, crushed into a million pieces.

Would they be able to help each other put the pieces of their lives back together or would the pain and loss be too much to overcome?

I really liked the premise of this story the three friends growing up together moving through different phases of their lives and how it impacted their relationships.
I'm in a quandary because I enjoyed the story and for a debut author it was a well written book. The bug bearer for me is Zach, I started out really liking him and the dynamic between them all. As the story progressed I eally disliked him, the way he treated everyone and his actions just turned completely off him and sadly it never recovered.

Like There's No Tomorrow has a whole lot of hurt packed into it. Loss, pain, and mourning aren't just for those who have died. Emma was living the dream and then she wasn't. All her hopes crash down around her in a blaze. It's hard to even think of tomorrow. 
I definitely cried like a baby in this book. It's inevitable. I enjoyed the story but I thought the focus on certain aspects seemed to wane a bit. Watch your six, there's at least one surprise on the horizon.

I am a happily married wife of 36 years and mother of two grown children. My dream to be a published author began about 30 years ago when my kids were small. It was only two years ago that this dream of writing began.

An avid reader of Romance and Suspense/Thrillers as well as the Classics, I decided to venture into the world of writing and self publishing.  

I'm happiest at home with my wonderful husband and my 2 dogs or spending time with my kids/grandkids. Home is located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
