This novella had some very deep threads running through it. The two main characters, Ezra and Piper, both dealt with incredible losses in their young lives. I felt like Ezra and Piper were well-developed characters that I cared about. Seeing Piper struggle with fear and guilt and nightmares was so sad. But I loved the way Ezra that was there for her emotionally, being the friend she needed.
Live Without You was a clean romance, appropriate for teens and adults alike. There was a clear faith message and a lot of spiritual growth, especially for Piper, in this story. I liked watching as Ezra and Piper reconnected after years apart. Their romantic relationship developed in the second half of the story and I would have loved to have read a few more scenes that actually encompassed their dating life. I enjoyed reading Live Without You. It was a very interesting and moving story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Piper Redding is a loner, but lonely. Everyone she loves has abandoned her and opening her heart to others is just asking for more pain. She can’t help but blame herself for her brother’s tragic death six years ago, and in her guilt, she shuts herself off from the world. No one could love her-not even the God who promised to be there for her but wasn’t. For paramedic Ezra Bryant, failure is not an option. He’s had enough of it, and only by God’s grace is he able to put it behind him. But when a traumatic event brings Piper’s greatest fear and Ezra’s failures to light, can they use that event to allow God to mend their broken pieces? Can love triumph over fear, and grace over guilt?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Sarah Grace Grzy is a voracious reader, and if it weren’t for this crazy thing called ‘Life,’ she’d be tempted to spend all her days in front of a wood stove, book in one hand, coffee mug in the other.
A lover of learning, she finds enjoyment in many things and has more hobbies than she knows what to do with. Sarah Grace is a freelance web and graphic designer, and when not working, spending time with her ever-growing family, or reading, she can be found painting, playing the piano, or fangirling with her sisters and friends. She inhabits the State of Great Lakes, and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else—unless it meant she could have a baby penguin, in which case, she’d gladly move to the South Pole.
