No Regrets by Nicky James
A truly moving love story
There is a note to the reader at the start of this book, from the Author.I’m only going to quote her final words and hopefully, that will be enough to convince anyone to read this amazing book.
No one will die in this book.You will not journey with Landon to his end.Instead, you will walk beside him and watch him live.
I knew reading this would be painful for me as someone very close to me had the exact same illness Landon has.I knew all those memories would come flooding back and they did but I wouldn’t have missed reading this for anything.
Landon is 26 and has a terminal illness.
He’s working his way through his bucket list and while he’s in China he meets Abel. Abel is like a breath of fresh air….he’s pushy but so endearing. Landon is happy in his own company, he’s resigned to the fact he can’t let anyone get close to him.
But Abel has other ideas…
After their initial encounter they bump into each other again and no matter how hard he tries Landon can’t seem to deter Abel.One of the things on his bucket list is to have sex with a stranger so Landon thinks why not?
It was only supposed to be a one night stand…
Landon and Abel are two of the most engaging characters I’ve read about and together they are perfect.
I had a lump in my throat more than once reading this.
Every happy moment.
Every sad moment.
The message is a strong one and it’s so beautifully written.
Life is for living!
Take every moment, and if you’re lucky enough to find that special person to share it with-grasp it with both hands and don’t let go.
“I love you, Abel, as much as you’ve made this harder on me, you’ve made my life a million times brighter.No regrets, okay?”
This book ended with hope for me.
Hope, that these two amazing men get to share their lives'(however short) together.
Landon and Abels’ story is just beautiful.
