*BLOG TOUR STOP*A Taylor-Made Life By Kary Rader

A Taylor-Made Life Blog Tour & Giveaway

They lived the life they were given; they loved the life they made.
Cheerleader Taylor Smith doesn’t want to die a virgin. Unfortunately, if the terminally-ill leukemia patient doesn't find a lover or a stem-cell match within months, her fear will become reality. When her cancer mentor is revealed to be a hottie entrepreneur from California, it seems fate might finally be on her side.
Tech-geek Gavin Taylor has everything he ever wanted, except someone to grieve for him when he's gone. With his melanoma cancer beyond the help of his riches, he agrees to participate in a cancer patient mentoring program where he's matched with a dying teen from Texas. Despite his immediate attraction, the Silicon Valley whiz intends only to provide friendship and happy memories to the beautiful, young woman who is determined to win his love.
When it's discovered that his frozen sperm and her harvested eggs could lead to a cure, Taylor's mother offers to be a surrogate. And Gavin must decide if he can risk the heart he has never given and a child he'll never know to a girl he just met.

  What an amazingly touching story A Taylor-Made Life was.one of those stories that touches you and brings the tears.I haven't had a book make me cry until I read this one.Taylor Smith is dying.She is also a virgin.She does NOT want to die a virgin.Gavin is Taylor's mentor,who is also dying of cancer.Come to find out that His frozen sperm and Her frozen Eggs just might be a cure for Taylor's cancer.
  Seriously Can you not see how the tear works start?I know how I wrote it it feels cut and paste.It is NOT.I never try to give spoilers.That is simply my fast way of summarizing the story.It shows what true love is and the true meaning of it by selflessly giving someone something so close to you and knowing you will never get to enjoy that.Gosh hand me a stinking tissue.It is harder because I have lost a family member to cancer and have a friend fighting cancer now.Im sorry Im cutting this review short.Read A Taylor-Made Life.You will LOVE it.Have tissues handy.
