Life’s Too Short Summary
When Vanessa Price quit her job to pursue her dream of traveling the globe, she wasn’t expecting to gain millions of YouTube followers who shared her joy of seizing every moment. For her, living each day to its fullest isn’t just a motto. Her mother and sister never saw the age of 30, and Vanessa doesn’t want to take anything for granted.
But after her half sister suddenly leaves Vanessa in custody of her baby daughter, life goes from “daily adventure” to “next-level bad” (now with bonus baby vomit in hair). The last person Vanessa expects to show up offering help is the hot lawyer next door, Adrian Copeland. After all, she barely knows him. No one warned her that he was the Secret Baby Tamer or that she’d be spending a whole lot of time with him and his geriatric Chihuahua.
Now she’s feeling things she’s vowed not to feel. Because the only thing worse than falling for Adrian is finding a little hope for a future she may never see.

The third time’s the charm! I was mentally prepared for this to devastate me, and that made the reading experience go much smoother. If you think I’m joking, then you clearly haven’t read this author’s first two books, lol! She is a phenomenal writer, but I found the tonal shift in her first two books to be too jarring, and they kinda wrecked me (and wrecked the books for me too, in a way). That wasn’t the case with this one; there’s a bittersweet tone to the entire book, and it’s sprinkled with heartache. This is still very much a rom com, with plenty of light and carefree moments, but you know everything is going to come to a head at some point. I loved the opposites attract dynamic; Adrian is such a workaholic that days pass by without him even realizing it, while Vanessa doesn’t take a moment for granted. Their lifestyles are completely different, but they end up being perfect complements for each other, and that was so great to read.
The story follows Vanessa, a woman who knows she has a 50/50 chance of developing ALS, a disease that has taken the lives of several women in her family before they reached the age of thirty. Knowing that, she lives every day as if it could be her last, and she’s built up a successful vlog dedicated to the cause. Though she’s very successful, Vanessa’s life seems to be one never-ending hot mess, and she would never wish that on anyone else – or bring anyone else into that (possibly temporary) life. So her world gets complicated when she becomes the guardian to a baby girl, meets a man who makes her feel complete, and finds herself falling in love against her will.
It took awhile for me to like Vanessa, because she is so focused on her death. Simple as that. I appreciate that the author wove that storyline into the whole book, but it does take a bit to wrap your head around. Adrian, on the other hand, I loved right away. He doesn’t know what hit him, and he’s completely unprepared for the whirlwind that is Vanessa. I loved the two of them together, and the quieter moments are fantastic. This author has a skill for putting her readers on an emotional journey, and this has a little of everything. The back half was really the strongest part of the book for me, which is the opposite of my last two experiences with her work. Once Vanessa won me over, I was entirely invested in their love story, and that made the ups and downs more impactful. This is a rom com with emotion, and just the kind of book I love to read. I was lucky enough to receive an early copy (then purchased it for my collection), and am voluntarily leaving a review of this heartfelt romance.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read!

Abby Jimenez has done it again.
I LOVED this book so much and it took me out of my dreaded end of the year slump.
I told myself I would take my time with this book and inhaled it in two days. HA! This story is much more than a typical romance novel. Don’t get me wrong there’s romance and I loved the connection that Vanessa and Adrian shared, but this story will make you stop and think about life, your choices, everything. I found myself reflecting because at times I do feel like I’m not living life to it’s fullest and I need to do better.
I laughed, smiled and teared up all while reading this story. I related to this story on SO many levels. Growing up my Dad was addicted to drugs and it tore our family apart. Having a family member that is an addict is NO joke and having one for a parent is a special kind of torture. This book also touches on terminal illnesses, anxiety issues and family dynamics. It showcased the good, the bad, the ugly and this book was JUST what I needed to close out a tough year.
After reading this story, Jimenez has rightfully earned a spot on my favorite author list. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of this heartfelt story when it releases in April. When you do make sure to check out the authors note as well.
5.0 out of 5 stars Her Best Book Yet!

Well Abby has done it again. This is my favorite of the three she has written, so far. So many books are written with the author setting the stage, the scenes, the emotions in sometimes endless paragraphs or maybe two or three paragraphs. Abby does it with the conversations her characters engage in. Abby writes about life, the mundane to the heart wrenching, and everything in between. Not a life too good to be true or far-fetched but life the way is lived.
Her characters are believable and human. Can a reviewer just say, “I love her characters?” She keeps you informed of the going-on of heroines and heroes you have met in her previous books and you meet new people, and they become your family.
Abby always has a serious undercurrent in her books – be it infertility, chronic grief, or a fatal disease. She handles the undercurrent with grace and reality. They form her characters and provide the tide you ride as you read. She makes you think long after you have read the book a second or a third time – and you will re-read it. You will re-read it because you want to go back, slow down and search for the eggs you missed when you first devoured it. Or you will re-read it slowly to savor the emotions; or find out what she said in the book that makes you throw across the room. That first happened in LTS on page 19 – “I thought really Abby – so soon.” But my language was much more colorful.
Her research is unsullied, I do not think she read piles of academic or scholarly publications, but she talks to the people on all sides; who have lived what she is writing about. She examines the feelings and emotions of those topics. Her words are not clinical but alive, true, and honest in that moment.
It is an awesome book.
