My Life for Yours by Vanessa Carnevale / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @v_carnevale



Your life or your unborn child’s – how do you choose?

Paige and Nick are happy. They have a beautiful home, a loving family and, most importantly, they would do anything for each other. Now, they are having a baby and it feels like all their dreams are coming true.

But joy turns to despair when they discover that Paige has a rare, life-threatening heart condition and they lose their longed-for child. Heartbroken, the couple must accept the reality that they may not become parents after all.

Just as they begin to come to terms with their loss, Paige unexpectedly falls pregnant again. Paige’s heart is still weak, and to carry the baby to term puts them both at risk. The couple now face an impossible decision: Paige’s life or the life of their unborn child?

If Paige keeps the baby, she could lose her life and destroy the man she loves. If Nick tries to stop her, he may lose them both forever. It’s the most important decision they have ever had to make – and time is running out.




OMG! I had to take a break after finishing this book!! I often get emotional while reading a story. They more than once bring tears to my eyes, but only once in a while tears are really running down my cheeks. Well, this time I had two mini Niagara Falls flowing down my face.

What can I say. The story is beautiful, heartbreaking, heartwarming, scary, courageous, devastating. It made me smile, it made me cry.

I honestly cannot say what I would do when I would find myself in Paige’s shoes, but I think I would be too scared. She is one hell of a lady, that’s for sure.

One of the best books in this category that I have ever read. I already found ‘my’ queen of suspense. I think I have found ‘my’ queen of the waterworks. 5 stars, of course.

Thank you, Vanessa Carnevale and Bookouture
