When fate spares your life, your destiny is always love

Twenty-year-old widow and cancer survivor Taylor Smith-Taylor is running her late husband’s billion-dollar gaming business because she’s made a vow to keep TME—and Gavin’s memory—alive. But she’s falling hard for her sexy attorney Brad Richards, and it’s not just their professional connection that has her tied in knots.

When Taylor’s new idea takes off, she relies on Brad to help. Using company funds to back the innovative project, they begin a tumultuous affair and a multi-million dollar negotiation that could dominate the market or put the company in jeopardy.

As the corporate dealings escalate, their volatile relationship leaves their priorities more tangled than their bed sheets, and a fatal accounting error divides them, putting the company on the brink of bankruptcy. Brad pushes Taylor to embrace her idea, and him, by selling TME—a decision that, for her, goes deeper than money. When she refuses, it seems easier for both to walk away, and only a perspective from the grave can help her realize her future comes down to one choice: the love she’ll lose or the love she’ll make.

A Taylor-Made Love is the sequel to A Taylor-Made Life, which I have not read. Despite that, it wasn’t too hard to follow along with the perils, the ups and downs, of the life of Taylor Smith-Taylor, a twenty-year-old widow and cancer survivor. She’s tryign to run her late husband’s gaming business, trying to keep his memory alive. Luckily she gets some help from her attorney, Brad Richards, who is both sexy and intelligent, and who might just be the person who gets her out of her shell again. But when Taylor comes up with a new idea, and it takes off, she has to decide whether she’s going to sell TME and move on with her life – and along with that, move on with Brad – or if she’ll stay stuck in the past.

Taylor is one of my favorite new adult characters I’ve read about. She’s very mature for her age, but considering what she’s been through, that’s normal.  She has a lot of ambition, drive and passion, and she just seems like the kind of person you can’t help but like. The book focused on the grieving process too, which worked, and although it had some sad moments, overall it had a bright message: that it is possible to pick up the pieces and move on, but that this doesn’t mean you forget the person who passed away.

Taylor and Brad have a connection and chemistry between them that’s obvious from the start and only continues to grow as the book progresses. The writing was good, and made it easy to connect with the characters.
