Me Before You by Jojo Moyes Review

A New York Times bestseller—with more than three million copies sold—by the author of One Plus One and The Girl You Left Behind They had nothing in common until love gave them everything to lose . . .

Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life—steady boyfriend, close family—who has barely been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex–Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life—big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel—and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.

Will is acerbic, moody, bossy—but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.

A Love Story for this generation, Me Before You brings to life two people who couldn’t have less in common—a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?

My Thoughts:
5/5 Stars
Be prepared to have your heart ripped right out of your chest. This is a tear jerker that will leave you speechless at the end.
The book starts with a young woman searching for a job. She tries many different things, but each one ends shortly after. When she is offered a care position she isn't sure what she is getting into.
Her patient ends up being a handsome young man who was in a tragic accident.
At first they don't get along, but slowly signs of attraction are revealed. Louisa wants Will to want to live again. She does everything in her power to show him that he can do the things he loved to do before, but Will has other plans... He wants an out. He doesn't want to be stuck in the situation he's in.
Together they embark on a journey of struggles, romance, and heart break.
This book gutted me. With each intimate gesture my heart squeezed tightly. The romance is so unique, almost forbidden, but beautiful. It shows that love isn't always flowers and hearts. It proves that sometimes in order to show love you have to let go...
Will Traynor was the perfect, handsome man that loved to adventure. Now he is a handsome man stuck in a dark place. It's as if he is slowly drowning. Sickness happens frequently and the pain comes and goes. Life is living in a wheelchair with minimum movement. He is miserable and even though Louisa brings out a bit of the old Will he still isn't ready to commit to being a disabled man for the rest of his life.
I highly recommend this read to everyone!!
