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?
Please note that during the first week The Ending I Want will release at $2.99
A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
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.
I have attached pictures of the muses that Sam used for Liam and Taylor. Henry Cavill is her Liam, and of course it works well as Liam is English, and super hot just like Henry! Taylor’s muse is Suki Waterhouse.
Sam gives us a bit of background on the characters…
Taylor Shaw is 22 years old, from Boston, USA. She has a brain tumour and she is choosing to die.
Liam Hunter is 32 years old, from London, England and he is amazing! And that’s all you’re getting! 😉
Stand out track: If You’re Not The One – Daniel Bedingfield
I was having real trouble finding Taylor and Liam’s song. There were a few occasions where I’d thought that I had found their song, but each time, something held me back from it. Then, I heard “If You’re Not The One” and I knew immediately that it was their song. It’s perfect in so many ways. For me, this song embodies the love that Taylor and Liam feel for one another.
