Release Blitz & Review – The Weight of Life


“Don’t let go.” Those were my first words to him, as I hung over the side of a London bridge. The words I would soon say again, in a moment that didn’t involve bridges, but something much more fragile: my heart.
He held onto me for three weeks, in a time when I needed to be held. Needed to connect to someone who understood how loss tunneled unrepentantly through the fabric of your soul.
Although he said he’d stay, we both knew he wouldn’t. I had already survived one loss—I didn’t know if I’d survive another. 
She spun into my life like a tornado of smiles and chatter and everything else I’d long avoided, with a persistence that I admired, albeit begrudgingly. She broke down each neat wall I’d constructed without even trying. Her presence alone caused me to remember what it felt like to smile, to look forward to what the day would bring.
But it was only supposed to last three weeks.
“Don’t let go,” she’d pleaded.
I’d promised her I wouldn’t—but I would. I didn’t have a choice.


This book left me with a deep, heavy feeling in my chest. Usually I equate that feeling with sadness but this one was a pure happiness. I was so happy to see our main characters get to where they get in the end because I felt so connected to their happiness. I think all their happiness is a little bit stronger for me because of the pain and grief they’ve both known. You feel for them and want to see them come out on top.

Ames and Mila have both seen and felt grief but the way it manifests itself in completely different ways for each one. They carry their weights differently and that draws them to each other. Ames is a grounding presence and Mila is a brightness that had been missing in his life.

I just loved everything about this book. The happy bits made me deeply happy, the sad parts left me an emotional mess and the cute funny bits just made me laugh (see tiny Dexter reference). This was an amazing, emotional read that hit me in all the feels.


I like nachos and champagne and clean sheets. I spend far too much time at Starbucks. I wrote a couple books
