*Reviewed for HookedonBooksForever* 5 STARS!!! Awww... Ok now that I got that out. Wow... The Last Heartbeat by TR Lykins is the most romantic, heartbreaking, and inspiring novels I have read in a very long time. Alexia is a 20 year old college freshman. She's starting school so late because 5 years ago she was on her last heartbeat, in desperate need of a heart transplant, literally taking her last breath before being rushed into surgery for a donor heart. She now is living every day to its fullest. On her flight to college, her dream college on the beach, she meets a handsome stranger, Phillip. Phillip is a 22 year old college student recovering from the tragic death of his older brother at the hands of a drunk driver. Phillip and Alexia both are transplant patients, Alexia has a donor heart, Phillip has his brother's liver, donated after he died. Phillip and Alexia have an inexplicable connection, from the moment they meet. Can they're chance meeting maybe bring these two living on borrowed time to experience true love? This story had me in tears, made me laugh, made me fall in love, and made me want to live each day to the fullest. My only complaint was reading from Phillip's perspective always felt like going back in time and it felt rushed, like just a summary of what you already read from Alexia's side. However, despite that, this is a wonderfully beautiful love story that will touch your heart and stay with you long after you've turned the last page.
Audible Review: Last Heartbeat on audio is fun and interesting as the Narrator changes her voice to suit the character she's reading to you. Story Review: Last Heartbeat is an emotional tilt a whirl sweet romance. I was immediately attached to both Alexia and Phillip and felt a kinship to them. Both of their histories remind me of someone I love. It was an instant freeze for me. Either I'm going to love this story or hate it. Well, I absolutely loved it. Their stories and health issues were written with great care and tenderness. With the the ups and downs of the relationship my emotions went right with Alexia's. At times I wanted to knock some sense into Phillip. He had my heart though and Alexia's as well. This story is a perfect story of love conquering all.
