Dont Hold Back release and review!!

Release Date: March 12, 2017
Three countries. Two months. All expenses paid. 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.

I'll admit the premise of this book intrigued me from the start - dying girl posts Craigslist add for travel companion (this is not a spoiler - it was in the blurb)...I definitely haven't read that story before. 

The angst level is off the charts high. This book choked me up and definitely broke my heart but the underlying thread of hope, of love, of forgiveness and determination healed me along the way. 

Our heroine Erin Camden may have terminal cancer but she chooses to live her life the way many of us wish we had the courage to. She's determined to make her mark on the world in the short time she has left and not even cancer will stop her from this next great adventure. 

Cade Wilson has hit rock bottom, his life is in shambles and he's desperate to find a way out of the mess he's created.  When the opportunity arises to get his life back on track he jumps at the chance and in the process embarks on the journey of a lifetime with a dying girl. 

I swear this book nearly killed me. I'd never heard of Missy Johnson before but her writing is incredible. Her characters are real and raw and their struggles are relatable. I'm pretty sure cancer has or will touch us all at some point in our lives. We will all know someone who has fought and lost this battle but we also know how much strength and courage those battling the disease have. They never give up fighting. They live, laugh and hopefully love until their last breath.
