Five hundred billion stars because Greg!!
Annie’s live has never been in her control. Her condition has ruled every aspect of her life. The one thing she refuses to be controlled by her illness is her List, the one she diligently keeps and has every intention of fulfilling. She moves to New York with her family in hopes of starting all over.
Getting a job at Wasted Words was just one of many steps. The one person who was with her from that first step was Greg. As much as she tells her herself that he is just a friend, her heart refuses to comply.
Greg was enamored by Annie the moment he saw her. As much as he’d liked to go after her, he can’t. He is far too young for him on top of the fact that he’s her boss. But everyday spent with her makes him forget all the reasons why he shouldn’t pursue her. He knows she might break his heart but in matter of love sense rarely plays any role.
I just want to explain to you how much I freaking LOVED this story but there’s a 99% possibility that my ramblings won’t make a lick of sense.
Annie started as a naive girl who was experiences everything around her for the first time. She transformed into this beautiful woman who knew where she wanted her life to go. Her character development made me so proud I wanted to just hug her and cry for days.
I cannot even with Greg, y’all! I have lost the ability to can. *ugly crying* This man was so pure and good with the most beautiful soul and I just love him so damn much. I will never be over the fact that this man is so considerate, thoughtful and caring. Like I would give my kidney if there was a chance to bring Greg to life.
My heart aches in all the best places because this story will stay with me forever. I am planning to read it again and again till I can recite it by heart.

Bestselling author Staci Hart brings you another installment of the Austen Series, inspired by the works of Jane Austen, with a heartfelt contemporary retelling of Sense and Sensibility.
When Annie Daschle arrives in New York City, the only thing she can control is her list.
Not her father’s death or the loss of her home. Not the hole in her heart or the defective valve that’s dictated so much of her life. But she can put pen to paper to make a list of all the ways she can live out loud, just like her dad would have wanted.
See the city from the top of the Empire State Building: Check.
Eat hot dogs on the steps of The Met: Check.
Get a job at Wasted Words: Check.
What wasn’t on her list: Greg Brandon. And just when she thinks she’s figured out where to put him, everything changes. In the span of a few staggering heartbeats, she finds herself her caught in the middle of something she can’t find her way out of, with no clear answers and no rules.
List or no list, she realizes she can’t control anything at all, not even her heart.
Not the decisions it makes, and not the moment it stops.
