Synopsis:

Dying . . . Dead . . . Deceased . . .
It doesn’t matter how many times I say it or how many different names I give it, it still means the same thing. One of these days I’ll be nothing but a passing memory, a familiar face in a forgotten photo. But there's three things I need before this life of mine ends . . . I need to tell him I love him more than life itself. I need to feel the strength of his arms wrapped around me just one more night. Most of all, I need him to forgive me. Eight years ago I broke the heart of the only man I’ve ever loved and today I’m moving home in hopes that he’ll let me put it back together. I’m not sure how many breaths I have left, but I’ll use each and every last one fighting for what I destroyed. My name is Laney Jacobs and this is my journey.

Review By: Tatia

Pretty Pink Ribbons was a wonderful story of second chances, of not taking life for granted and living it to the fullest.
Laney is a girl who is full of life. She's had to be the strong one all her life, ever since her mom died. She's been the one shielding and taking care of her brother, Luke. She's also feisty. She goes after what she wants. What she wants is a life with Levi, but she also wants to go to culinary school on the other side of the country.
Levi is the sweetest guy a girl could ask for. He's in love with Laney and is ready to confess said love. He can't wait to surprise her. He knows they were made for each other. What he wasn't ready for was Laney dropping a surprise on him. He never expected that things could change so much so quickly.
I was immediately drawn in to this story. Laney and Levi balance each other out. But they're both also strong willed, which when it comes down to it, could be their downfall. It could be the one thing that could tear them apart. Seeing their story evolve, see the second chances that come from forgiving and moving on, of putting the past behind you, it was all very heartwarming. In the end, you see that they come out stronger on the other side, putting what is most important first.
I didn't just love Laney and Levi. They had some of the best of friends and family supporting them along the way. I hope to see Mia, Benny, Luke, and even Mason get their own stories told in the future.

Excerpt:

“I wish it was someone else,” she croaks, swallowing hard. “There are thousands of bad people in the world, but it happened to you.” I watch her eyes fill with tears and then I look away. It’s pathetic of me really; that I’m unable to look my best friend in the face when it’s obvious that she is struggling with this almost as much as I am. But I’ve cried my fair share of tears and although I’m certain my tear ducts have yet to dry up, I don’t want to cry tonight. Somehow I know that if I watch Mia break, then I’ll shatter right along with her. “I’m glad it’s me.” She gasps, startled by my words, and I rush to try and explain. “If it wasn’t me, it would be someone else, and I would never wish this upon someone else. You know that saying that God will only give you what you can handle?” She nods. “Sometimes I tell myself that he just thinks I’m really strong and I can handle it, whereas someone else couldn’t.” “Does that help?” she asks. “Does that make you feel better about it?” “No, but it eases my mind. Sometimes when I’m having a good day, it brings me peace, however temporary it may be. But no, it doesn’t make me feel better.” “Peace,” she whispers, seemingly trying the word on for size. “I want you to have peace.”
