In a powerful romance hailed as “heartbreaking, real, and breathtakingly beautiful” by Stacey Lynn, New York Times bestselling author A. Meredith Walters tells the story of a troubled young woman and the unforgettable guy who teaches her to live—and love—to the fullest.

She’s waiting to die. . . . Corin Thompson is paralyzed by her obsession with mortality. Having lost both of her parents, she is terrified by the idea that she too will die young, and she loses control at any sign of illness. But when Corin connects with someone who has survived a very real brush with death, she begins to see the world in a whole new way.

He’s learning to live. . . . As Corin struggles under the weight of her neuroses, Beckett Kingsley is attempting to rebuild a life that feels all too temporary. With the ever-present threat of heart failure never far from his mind, he just wants to make the most of whatever time he has left. And that means pursuing the girl he never expected to find.

Together, Corin and Beckett finally learn to let go of their fears and take solace in everyday pleasures. Who knows what the future holds? After all, nothing lasts forever—the only promise they have is right now.
  
I was iffy to start Butterfly Dreams because I had read a few other New Adult books that almost made me want to take a break from New Adult. Luckily Butterfly Dreams gave me hope that there are still a precious gems out there that give me the all the feels.
I began reading Butterfly Dreams on my break and continued to read throughout the day. As soon as someone would walk in I would put my phone to the side and pretend like I was busy (sorry boss but in my defense I had already finished my work that needed to be done.)
Corin, which is a pretty cool name, is a character that was struggling with health anxiety. She would feel some type of way and immediately jump to the conclusion that she had this disease or that disease and was determined to prove that she was indeed sick. You see Corin lost both her parents and that affected her. Throughout the story Corin struggles with letting go of old fears and watching her slowly let go and want to live was bittersweet and beautiful.
Beckett has a heart disease that makes it hard for him to do the things he use to like run or play with his friends. He has to be limited in order to make sure his heart doesn't give out again. And although he's going through that, Beckett makes others smile and tries to be happy with his new life. I found that so enduring and just made me like this character so much more.
Corin and Beckett broke my heart and made it soar. They both fought battles together. They both got through it together. They both loved each other madly. And most importantly they never let the other give up. Corin and Beckett were each other's hope and that hope was spectacular. Also one of the many things I loved about the couple was the banter, you guys are going to laugh with all the witty things they tell each other.
Butterfly Dreams was such an amazing story; it was full of hope and second chances and just go read the book right now.
