Out of Reach Book Blitz & Review

Title: Out of Reach 
Author: Missy Johnson
Release Date: May 8, 2014

My best friend was dying and I was in love with his girl.

Andy and I had been best friends since we were eight-years old.

Watching him slowly fade away, ever closer to his final breath, made me so incredibly angry. I knew there was nothing I could do to change it--I had given in to despair, but Andy had not. He had one last hand to play.

He wasn't going to simply sit back and wait for Death to claim him--not Andy. He was going to live life until he couldn't hold his eyes open any longer.

Andy didn't want to die in some sterile hospital and asked me to take him and Emily to the beach. It would be our last road trip together.

Emily. Emily was a problem for me.

I harbored a secret that would have torn our friendship apart. I was in love with Andy's girl, and had been since she'd walked into our sixth grade class, so many years ago.

So what kind of person am I? My best friend is dying, and it's awful--but my heart still aches for his girl. I hate myself for thinking beyond Andy's death and whether there could ever be a future for Emily and I, but I can't help it.

I'm in love with her.

  This one will break your heart. Emily and Andy have a honest and pure love that will have readers hearts breaking as they watch this story unfold. At every turn of the Andy's health I felt my mooder slide a little darker. My emotions seemed to reside on the brink of overwhelming for the majority of this book, and this was only the start of the story. As more past is reveiled I find that this was innocent love triangle that had remained in the dark for many years. I also find that Emily is close to a saint as she jumps in a this relationship with Andy only to days later find he had Cancer. Thus starting a long and sorted battle that ultimately proves stronger than what he can fight. Nothing about this story is easy; this is a emotionally taxing journey that will milk the tears. The ending offers a happy conclusion, or rather a nice and tidy wrap for these characters rough journey. >

Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she's a cat, a cat who thinks he's a get the picture).

When she's not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.
