BLOG TOUR: Wish Me Tomorrow by Karen Rock

Be prepared to fall in love with this book! Its a wonderful story about a man and a women who refuse to give into their wants for the shear reasoning of not wanting to hurt the other. Winding their way into each others heart could be an obstacle but kids and life are nothing compared to the threat of cancer.
Eli has been in remission from Cancer, his wife has left him and he has two kids that he has to raise on his own. He battles with the fact that his kids will grow old and celebrate life's milestones without him. Trying to put his kids first, he try's to not fall for the happy superstitious woman who is worming his way into his heart.
Christie works as a nurse and a grief councilor which causes its tolls some days but when stunning Eli sits in on a group session to please an old friend her heart cant help but take a hold and not let go. But letting go has been a problem before for her
These two characters we amazing right from the beginning. You will fall in love with Eli instantly for the fact that he can acknowledge his attraction for Christie but for the sake of his kids he puts his needs aside. I love that about him. He wasn't selfish even though sometimes some of his decisions makes you want to smack him up side the head. He's head strong and stubborn but has a good heart. And then there's Christie who has a keen sense of what Eli and his family needs and she sets out to just help the family. Low and behold though that she cant stay away. From the little chats in group session to jogging in the early morning, Eli and his family start to depend on the easy going loving women. Together these two make such a beautiful couple and the whole of them are one stunning family. Filled with teenage drama, young kids imagination, and a couples blossoming romance, this book will make you smile.
There are both loving and scary moments in Wish Me Tomorrow that will make you look at the ones you love and cherish what time you have. Even though there is death there is also life. Watching a young women change and develop into something her father could be proud of and share the same passions as he. Giving a father the hope and will to fight for his life not just for his kids but for the courage to show everyone that he could do this.
I adore this book and I hope everyone will give it a chance and pick it up. Its a loving, contemporary book with real characters and real life situations that causes one to rethink what it is to love. Also I read this book so fast I didn't even remember to grab quotes from the book. LOL! Yeah I read it that fast and was so into the book that I just read straight through. You gotta believe me... ITS AMAZING!
