Three countries.

Just you and me.

About you: You’re fun loving, adventurous and you have a wicked sense of humor. You’re spontaneous, open minded and creative. You live for today because you never know what tomorrow holds.

I’m Erin and this isn’t your usual Craigslist Ad. I’m twenty-four, and full disclosure, I’m dying. But I don’t want your pity. What I want is your help. I’m not looking for a nanny, or for someone to hold my hand. I want a friend, a confidante, a partner in crime.

I want you.

✯5 Ugly Cry Stars!!!

Missy Johnson has done it to me again.  I really wanna know if she enjoys making people cry. BC, I cried for an hour straight while reading this. I suggest you open a new box of tissues, get your blanket and be prepared.

Erin is 24yrs old. She finds out she has a brain tumor that can't be operated on and that its very aggressive. She has months to live. 

Erin decides to go out her way. She's not doing anymore treatments and wants to live the rest of her life. Erin plans on traveling to a few different countries. Erin loves her family and friends. But, whenever they look at her all she sees is their sadness and tears. She decides not going with them. Instead, she puts an Ad on Craigslist looking for a companion.

Cade has hit absolute rock bottom! He can't even look at himself. When the opportunity to go on this trip came up he wasn't too sure. Cade might of had his own motives for going at first. But, when he sees Erin everything changes.

Things aren't 100%. Erin and Cade are strangers and are both dealing with their own issues. But, they become friends. The more time they spend together the more clearly Erin is making Cade see things about his life. 

They both start having feelings for the other one. Erin wanted to be loved. Really loved before she died. She never thought she'd get that. Cade is finally seeing everything in front of him for what they are. Cade's father is a doctor and knows a lot of Drs. Cade refuses to loose Erin now that he's found her.  Cade sucks up his pride and calls his father. If and when they find a chance even a slim chance that a Dr could save her... Would Erin take that chance and run with it.. Even if the chance of surviving the surgery is slim. But, with little time left its  a big decision.

I LOVED this story. I was hooked from the synopsis. I knew I was going to cry. But, I full out bawled for over an hour reading this. Missy Johnson wrote a story about life, love, starting over, family, friends and death. It was so beautifully written. If I could give this book higher then 5 stars I definitely would! I can't wait to see what she writes next.

“Who the hell books a flight for seven a.m.?” I grumble under my breath as I hoist my suitcase out from the boot of the taxi. I toss a twenty through the open window of the driver’s seat, telling him to keep the change. The whole twenty cents. Yeah, I’m generous like that.

I’ve barely slept, which I guess is good considering the eighteen-hour flight I have ahead of me. Unless she’s going to want to talk the whole way, in which case no sleep is bad. Of course she is. Women always want to talk. Dying women probably take that to a whole other level. I chastise myself for being so insensitive. Let’s see if I can get through this trip without offending the girl. Or more realistically, let’s see if I can get through the week.

I stroll through departures, scanning the crowd for Erin. I’ve only met her twice now, but she was kind of unforgettable—hot in a she-has-no-idea-how-hot-she-is kind of way. Even that first time, all wet and dishevelled, she was mesmerizing.

My eyes fall on her and a smile tugs at my lips. She’s bent over her open bag, her long blond hair hanging loosely over her shoulder. It feels kind of wrong that I’m checking her out, given her situation, but I can’t help myself. I give it another minute before I walk over to join her.

“Hey,” I say.

She jumps, straightening up. Her face reddens when she faces me.

“You’re supposed to do the packing thing at home,” I tease her. Half her luggage is dumped onto the floor next to her, and I love that she doesn’t seem to give a shit.

“I’m looking for something,” she retorts, narrowing her stunning blue eyes.

I raise my eyebrows curiously and grin.

“It’s not important.”

“It obviously is,” I argue. I’m enjoying playing with her. “And the fact that you don’t want to tell me what it is makes me wonder…”

“Well stop wondering,” she replies. “If you want to do something useful, help me zip this up. It’s stuck.” She bends back over and gives the zip a yank, as if to prove her point.

“It’s stuck because you have this caught in it.” I grab hold of the offending material and back the zipper up. It releases, and I proudly hold it up. “Lacy and transparent,” I say when I realise I’m holding a pair of her panties. I let out a low whistle. “I’m impressed.”

She blushes and snatches them out of my hand, shoving them back in her suitcase. She zips it closed and glares at me. “I’m beginning to regret this already,” she growls.

“Never regret lacy panties, Erin,” I tease. “But seriously, I’m just messing with you. This trip will be great. Trust me. We’ll have fun.”

“I’m having trouble believing that,” she retorts, properly facing me for the first time.
