Find on Goodreads
Paul James loved Clara Bateman.
Hating her would have been easier.
She was the past, and he was hell-bent on keeping her there.
Or so he thought...
You’re my father.
I don’t know much about you. I know your name is Paul James, you’re a thrill seeker, and once upon a time you did stunts and people called you ‘Epic.’
I’ve been told you don’t know about me. That it’s complicated.
But for me it’s simple.
Here’s the thing: I’m twelve years old…and I’m dying.
And as much as this could crush my mother, I have to meet you before I go.
In time, I’m sure she’ll understand. She’s still in love with you.
So, Epic, if you read this, please come back. You don’t have to be my dad. You don’t even have to tell me you love me or you’re sorry. Just come see me.
Patiently waiting, but running out of time,

"Life is too short to be subtle."

This book was a hard one for me. The subject matter was a personal trigger but I loved the story and I knew I had to push through. At 14% in and I'm bawling uncontrollably and let me tell you, books don't generally make me cry. Sure I get the feels, but tears, not often. This was my first BN Toler book but holy hell he woman can write. The words flow effortlessly off the page and the story draws you in from the prologue. 

This book grabbed my heart, ripped it out and stomped on it, but I loved every page, every word, every tear. I fell in love with little Neena, a 12 year old girl who wanted nothing more that to meet her father before she died. My heart broke for her mom Clara as she watched her baby grow sicker and sicker with not chance of recovery and I loved Paul who didn't know his daughter existed but stepped up when he found out and did everything he could to make his daughter's last few months epic. 

Paul and Clara have a complicated past, full of heartbreak and hurt but they put aside their feelings to focus on their daughter. This book made me cry like my heart was breaking but it also made me smile through my tears. This wasn't a love story, it was a story of love ❤

5 Epic Stars

B N Toler lives in Virginia. When she's not reading and writing, she's thinking about reading and writing. Before she became a self-proclaimed writer, she worked as a real estate agent and as an orthodontic technician. **She will notice your teeth before your eyes or hair or anything.**

She enjoys shopping (way too much) and is on a first name basis with several employees at the local Target in her town.

She loves music,(bluegrass, country, 80's, actually she loves most music ~her favorite song is American Pie by Don McLean and she worships anything that is Elvis and Johnny Cash and Eric Church) dancing, (even though she sucks at it)reading, writing, eating (too much) sleeping late, (which she rarely gets to do) and laughing. If you can make her laugh, she will love you forever.
