Taylor Shaw had the perfect life—until she was sixteen. That was when everything changed. From that moment on, life went from bad to worse…to the worst.
After recovering from a brain tumor, months later, she suffers the tragic loss of her whole family.
Since that fateful day, she’s been coasting through life.
Now, the brain tumor has returned, and Taylor decides she’s had enough. She’s going to take her fate into her own hands.
No more hospitals. No more surgeries. No more anything.
She’s going to join her family.
It’s her decision.
What she longs for.
The ending she wants.
She just has a list of things to do before she goes.
First, go to England.
Second, kiss a stranger…
Only, Taylor didn’t expect Liam Hunter, the stranger—with his handsome face, his six-foot-three of gorgeousness, and his oh-so-hot English accent—to change things.
To change her.
To change the ending she wanted.
What is a girl, who is standing on the edge of nothing, to do when offered the chance of everything?
A Note from Samantha: Writing The Ending I Want has been a cathartic and exhausting process for me, but I have loved every second of writing it. I relate to this story more than any of the stories that I’ve written before. Maybe that’s because there’s a piece of me in this book. And not in Taylor having a brain tumor, because fortunately I’ve never had to endure anything like that. But for me, it was the need to feel free from something that has crippled me for many years, just like Taylor is crippled by her own pain. Taylor wanted to die to be free. I never wanted to die, but I did want to be free, in a way that’s hard to explain. But now, after years of feeling trapped by my demons, things that have held me back in life, I’ve found a way to get the freedom I needed. I’m still a work in progress, but I’m working better now than I ever did before – just saying this cryptic stuff out loud is a big step for me. So, writing Taylor in the way I did was a big deal for me. I really hope that you love this story, and see strength in Taylor’s choices rather than weakness.
Patricia‘s Review – 5 Stars: ☆☆☆☆☆
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
So good to read another Samantha Towle’s book! I definitely love her writing style, the way she captures the reader attention, the suspense she gives the story and the steamy scenes are off the charts HOT!!!
I read this book in one sitting. Took me about 10 hours to read it in total and I only went to bed after the last page! Thank god it was Saturday!
The story captured my attention from the blurb. I started thinking about how would it be to know that I would die soon and wanting to do everything I truly imagining doing before my time would come. I totally would do the same as Taylor! Another city tho… not the same bucket list of course, but I see how courageous she was.
Liam… I was expecting a completely different character. Maybe arrogant and snob, but no, he’s not like that at all!
Liam is a billionaire, owner of a flight company, with more money you can think about, on his thirties. Yes, he’s completely alpha male, controlling, protective, cocky, confident but totally adorable with a heart of gold! I want a Liam to myself!!!
Taylor… she’s a sweetheart! She went through a lot when she was younger, surviving a brain cancer, lost her family, is completely alone in the world and now the cancer might be back at 22. Through the guilty she feels about her family death, she will not want to be treated, and decides to go clear her bucket list. First one: London!
There’s where they meet. One plane, one destination.
Taylor’s bucket list is kind of crazy but completely believable. I loved that in the end she completed everything she had there.
The story is emotional, romantic, sexy, angsty even, with secrets ready to be revealed at any time like a tic-tac bomb!
Loved Taylor and Liam story!!!
Maybe Cam and Eddie will give us theirs too?
“Go to England. Kiss a stranger. Have lots of sex,” his deep voice rumbles out the words I wrote.
He glances at me over his shoulder, a shit-eating grin on his face.
I don’t even bother with trying to get the list back now. What’s the point? He’s already seen it.
I fall back into my seat, my face feeling like a blowtorch went at it. “You’re an asshole,” I mutter.
He turns to face me, my list in his hand but still held out of my reach. “Aw, don’t be like that, Taylor, from Boston. I was just curious to read it.”
I’m pretty sure he’s going for contrite, but he’s failing miserably.
I glare at him. I’m going for death-by-laser stare.
It doesn’t work because he gives me a panty-dropping smile. I’d like to say I’m unaffected, but I’m not; however, I don’t let him know that.
“Curious? I don’t think so. An effing thief? Yes.”
He laughs. “I’m sorry. But you don’t need to be embarrassed. It’s a good list.” He looks back to my list. “Have sex with a stranger,” he continues on reading. “Have sex with a stranger outdoors. You do know I can help you with all of these, right?” He lifts a brow at me.
I give him the middle finger.
He laughs again and looks back to the list. Then, he stops laughing and stares at me with what can only be described as complete horror. “You’ve never had oral sex?”
Why the hell did I put that on my list?
