REVIEW – THE ENDING I WANT by Samantha Towle

The Ending I Want ebook cover


Taylor Shaw had the perfect life—until she was sixteen. That was when everything changed. From that moment on, life went from bad to worse…to the worst.
After recovering from a brain tumor, months later, she suffers the tragic loss of her whole family.
Since that fateful day, she’s been coasting through life.

Now, the brain tumor has returned, and Taylor decides she’s had enough. She’s going to take her fate into her own hands.
No more hospitals. No more surgeries. No more anything.
She’s going to join her family.
It’s her decision.
What she longs for.
The ending she wants.

She just has a list of things to do before she goes.
First, go to England.
Second, kiss a stranger…

Only, Taylor didn’t expect Liam Hunter, the stranger—with his handsome face, his six-foot-three of gorgeousness, and his oh-so-hot English accent—to change things.
To change her.
To change the ending she wanted.

What is a girl, who is standing on the edge of nothing, to do when offered the chance of everything?

From the moment I met her, I knew that she was different. That my life was about to change. I just didn’t realize how it would change. Two weeks, and she’s stolen my heart completely.


Samantha Towle is just one of those authors that never fails to write a story that sucks you in from the beginning and then leaves a lasting impression on you when you are done. I know that I’m going to fall in love with the Hero of the story and to expect enough angst to satisfy my sadistic side. When you read the synopsis you can’t help but fear how it all will end but once you start reading it’s really hard to put this one down.

Taylor Shaw is on a flight bound for London. She’s lost her entire family and blames herself for their demise. To top it all off, the brain tumor that she thought had been removed when she was sixteen has now resurfaced. This time, she decides to give up the fight and let the tumor take her so that she can be reunited with her family sooner rather than later. She believes this is her due penance. She’s going to London with her bucket list and plans on checking off every item on it within her two-week excursion. What Taylor didn’t count on was that the man sitting next to her on the plane would be the one to bring so much joy back into her life and make her want things she doesn’t think she has the right to have.

Liam Hunter is one sexy as hell Brit! He also happens to be a self-made billionaire. He owns the airline that the two are currently passengers on, along with a slew of hotels and other business ventures. As soon as he takes the seat next to Taylor, the attraction is palpable between them. Their connection is sealed with a seriously HOT kiss!!! Taylor, out of nowhere grabs on to Liam and lays one on him and it gets downright panty melting within seconds. I love British book boyfriends because they always seem to be skilled at the dirty talk and somehow pull it off without being the least bit creepy. He happens to see Taylor’s list on the floor and picks it up and begins to read it. One of the first things on the list was to kiss a stranger. Then there are a few very sexual items as well and Liam being the gentleman that he is, offers to be of service to Taylor in order to help her check off those items. Well, let’s just say the man delivers on all his promises!! The schmexy is seriously OFF THE CHARTS HOTand there is a ton of it, but never did I feel like it was overkill.

After their first night together, the two become inseparable. Liam seems to be so enamored of Taylor and vice versa. Liam makes it his duty to help Taylor to attempt to tick off all the items on her list. All the while Taylor struggles with her conscience, knowing that she doesn’t have long to live, but in her head, she rationalizes that the deep feelings that are starting to take over her heart are only one-sided. She believes that Liam is a player and will be done with her after the two weeks are up.

We get a few added gems in the form of Jake Wethers and The Mighty Storm, and Carrick Ryan. They all make an appearance in this book and it was a nice surprise. As Liam and Taylor spend more time together it’s apparent that this is not just an ordinary fling for either of them and the question is, will Taylor come clean about her illness before it’s too late or will she continue on with her charade and be bound for Boston after their two weeks are up???

Get ready to fall in love with this story and the incredibly swoon-worthy, Liam Hunter!! You’ll either be attacking your hubby, boyfriend, or BOB while reading this one and there will be times you’ll even shed a tear or two.
