Sweet Nothing by Jamie McGuire & Teresa Mummert | Book Review

Sweet Nothing by Jamie McGuire & Teresa Mummert

Reading Group: 17+

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Given SummaryIt is enough to break any man: watching what could have been my future slip away before it was ever in my grasp.The possibility of losing someone I loved, before she was even mine, is something I never would have imagined. Certainly nothing I'd ever wish on anyone. I go to her every day and wait. Wait for the impossible, for a sign, for her to look at me ... hoping sinners are granted miracles, too. 

Just one glimpse of him was all it took. In the next lane, at a stop light, was the man I would fall in love with and marry. People talk about the kind of love that takes time--love you fall in to. We were more like a crash and burn, and when our lives intertwined I would never be the same. He was the man I would cherish the rest of my life, who would father my children. In an instant our life together began, and in an instant it would end. The late nights; the excuses; the lies. And in the blink of an eye, it was like we never were. 
For the first time, experience a heartfelt, jaw-dropping novel by #1 New York Times bestseller Jamie McGuire, and New York Times bestselling author Teresa Mummert. 
When you think you know what's happening, you're only half way there.

Cover: This cover shows a girl underwater.  I don't completely understand why she's naked, but it makes the cover look nice.  She seems to be reaching fro something and it made me think of when you're on medication and you can still move, but you feel like you're underwater.  It's like the girl on the cover isn't awake, but she is dreaming and moving.

My Review: So I kind of guessed what the plot twist was going to be when Avery was at her wedding and started having hallucinations of being in the hospital.  Especially because they were hit by a semi truck and walked away with no damage.  However, I still loved the story.  It was different because it's not very often that authors (at least the ones I read) write about the happiness disappearing.  Usually the book ends at the wedding and it doesn't get in to what happens when a marriage falls apart.  Reading it is really sad because you know Josh didn't do anything wrong, but Avery didn't want to hear it.  And then Avery wakes up and you're waiting for Josh to wake up and just go back to way they were, but at the same time you're worried he isn't going to remember.  However, you know he's having the same dream because he can hear them in the hospital room, but how do you just wake up and continue living out the dream you had while you were in a coma when none of your other friends know what's going on?  The last line of the novel made my heart cry.  However, I do wish there was an epilogue to show that they did have the life they had when they were unconscious.  The last page made it out that everything would go that way, but you just never know.  They could have had a boy instead of a girl.  I would have liked a little reassurance.  
I am really glad I bought this book because it's on a limited release.  So if you would also like to read it you have to go buy it ASAP, I promise it is worth it.
