    Description

    A brilliant and touching romantic comedy from the USA Today best-selling author of The Friend Zone and The Happy Ever After Playlist.

    When Vanessa Price quit her job to pursue her dream of traveling the globe, she wasn't expecting to gain millions of YouTube followers who shared her joy of seizing every moment. For her, living each day to its fullest isn't just a motto. Her mother and sister never saw the age of 30, and Vanessa doesn't want to take anything for granted. 

    But after her half sister suddenly leaves Vanessa in custody of her baby daughter, life goes from "daily adventure" to "next-level bad" (now with bonus baby vomit in hair). The last person Vanessa expects to show up offering help is the hot lawyer next door, Adrian Copeland. After all, she barely knows him. No one warned her that he was the Secret Baby Tamer or that she'd be spending a whole lot of time with him and his geriatric Chihuahua. 

    Now she's feeling things she's vowed not to feel. Because the only thing worse than falling for Adrian is finding a little hope for a future she may never see.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    Commentaires

    “Abby Jimenez’s Life’s Too Short is a hilarious, tender, and altogether life-affirming gem of a book. This is the kind of novel that leaves you a little better than when it found you. Jimenez is a true talent.” (Emily Henry, New York Times best-selling author of Beach Read)

    “Abby Jimenez’s knack for tackling heavy subjects with humor and care shines through in this exquisitely written story about love, difficult family relationships, and living life to its fullest.” (Farrah Rochon, USA Today best-selling author of The Boyfriend Project)

    “Heartfelt and swoony...Jimenez masterfully blends heavy issues and humor, lacing the tear-jerking heartache with sass and sarcasm. Series fans and newcomers alike will be moved by this emotional rom-com.” (Publishers Weekly)

    Live for Today

    Live for today - that's the ongoing theme that comes across in this story. I went into this book with the understanding that I would probably laugh a bit and cry a lot. It didn't disappoint. Vanessa and Adrian compliment each other perfectly from them moment they meet.

    I loved the themes in this story and found it surprisingly uplifting. The dark periods and heavy content was much lighter than I had expected based on the previous two novels, especially TFZ (though to be honest that could be due to the personal connection I felt with the characters and storyline of that book). I also expected more heat than we got in this one. It was still a sweet romance with a nice wrap up, however I would have liked to see a little more sexy time details and a little less of the curtain closed post coital wrap up 😘 I really appreciated the cameos from some well loved characters!

    I truly enjoyed the narration in this. Christine Lakin is a new narrator to me but I'm familiar with her acting work/voice. She has a pleasing pace and a good register for both her female and male characters. Zachary Webber also did a great job as usual (but as a 1 click narrator for me that's to be expected). I particularly liked how he delivered the BuzzFeed-esk chapter titles! Also, as expected, he was the one who made me ugly cry 😭 He's so good at bringing on ALL the feels, but especially pain and despair!

    Overall I was happy I picked this up. Between the story and the audio performances it's worth the credit. Definitely could be a standalone but I highly recommend reading the first 2 because they are so worth it!
    ❤️🎧❤️

    This book was very sad!

    I wish this came with a warning, but my preference is to listen to romance books that take me away from life's heartaches. I don't want to read romance about terminal illness, death, addiction, etc. I really liked Abby's other books, but this one was a bit too heavy for me. I will be returning. :(

    So good!

    I rarely give 5 stars but I would give it 6 or 7 if I could. I loved how you can feel for both characters and the storyline flowed really well. After listening to two sub par books (one I didn’t finish) this was a breath of fresh air and something I really needed. Christine is new to me as a narrator but I really like her! Zachary can do now wrong.

    Another great one from Abby Jimenez

    I have had this book on my wish list for sometime and finally purchased and listened to it in the same day. Wonderful story and performance. It will be one I listen to again and again.

    Take a listen

    I really enjoyed this book. It is the story of two imperfect people and addresses a disease known as ALS. it also touches on the struggles of addiction and how it affects other family members. And of course, it's a love story! 👪

    I didn’t want it to end!

    I loved every minute of this book. I found myself relistening to chapters over and over to soak up every word. It put me in a good mood. Perfect for this crazy year!
