Paul James loved Clara Bateman.
Hating her would have been easier.
She was the past, and he was hell-bent on keeping her there.
Or so he thought…
Craigslist Ad: DESPERATELY SEEKING EPIC
You’re my father.
I don’t know much about you. I know your name is Paul James, you’re a thrill seeker, and once upon a time you did stunts and people called you ‘Epic.’
I’ve been told you don’t know about me. That it’s complicated.
But for me it’s simple.
Here’s the thing: I’m twelve years old…and I’m dying.
And as much as this could crush my mother, I have to meet you before I go.
In time, I’m sure she’ll understand. She’s still in love with you.
So, Epic, if you read this, please come back. You don’t have to be my dad. You don’t even have to tell me you love me or you’re sorry. Just come see me.
Patiently waiting, but running out of time,
Neena 

My Review

“I fucked up,” he rasps. “I know it. I’ve always known it. But I did love you, and I’ve never stopped. Hate me for leaving. Hate me for being a dick. But don’t hate me because I didn’t love you.”

“There was no who’s right or wrong. There was only this. Us. These feelings. This want. Nothing else mattered.”

Desperately Seeking Epic is beautifully written and captivating. From the moment you pick up this book, you are immediately sucked in and become lost in the story that is Neena, Paul and Clara. Their story will make you feel. It will consume you. It will grab you by the heart and have you on the edge of your seat, praying for a happy ending. This story is heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. It will remind you of just how precious life is and how you should make the most out of the time that you have. Desperately Seeking Epic is one of those stories that will stay with you for a long time after reading THE END.

I wasn’t 100% sure what I was getting myself into when I picked up this book. I knew that it was going to be an emotional read, but I had no idea about the epic journey that I was about to go on. This book had so many highs and lows; good times and bad. Moments that made you laugh and enjoy the little things. Moments that made your heart ache and break. Moments that showed you the power of love and how real love never dies. Real love can survive anything and get you through even the toughest times. This story is just incredibly beautiful and powerful. Definitely worth checking out.  Just make sure you a few tissues on hand, you may need them.

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*

B N Toler lives in Virginia. When she’s not reading and writing, she’s thinking about reading and writing. Before she became a self-proclaimed writer, she worked as a real estate agent and as an orthodontic technician. **She will notice your teeth before your eyes or hair or anything.**
She enjoys shopping (way too much) and is on a first name basis with several employees at the local Target in her town.
She loves music,(bluegrass, country, 80’s, actually she loves most music ~her favorite song is American Pie by Don McLean and she worships anything that is Elvis and Johnny Cash and Eric Church) dancing, (even though she sucks at it)reading, writing, eating (too much) sleeping late, (which she rarely gets to do) and laughing. If you can make her laugh, she will love you forever.
