Release Bliz: The Birthday List by Devney Perry @DevneyPerry



Happily married to her college sweetheart, Poppy lived a blessed life with the husband of her dreams. Then everything changed. She is no longer a wife. She is no longer the envy of her single friends. Now, people look at her with pity as they whisper a single word behind her back.


Years after her husband’s tragic death, years of pain and sorrow and wishing for the life she’ll never get back, Poppy decides to finish Jamie’s birthday list. She’ll do the things he wanted to most. Because maybe, just maybe, if she can complete his list, she can start to live again.

Poppy expects going through the birthday list will be hard. She expects it to hurt. But what she doesn’t expect is Cole. Could the man who delivered the news of her husband’s death and shattered her heart be the one to help her put it back together again?

Devney Perry has become my "exception read' author. She's the one author who I trust emphatically to bring me gently past my own boundaries and land me on the other side with my heart in one piece. It might have cracks and scars but I'd live through those breaks over and over with her as my storyteller.
This story definitely broke me and healed me over and over.
The hero of The Birthday List isn't just Cole. It's Jamie, it's Poppy and it's even Jimmie. The hero is not just a character but the story itself. It might not make sense to call a story a hero but maybe if I call it exceptional, brave, healing, loyal, touching and beautiful..then maybe you'd understand that the word hero fits.

Poppy had to survive an extraordinary tragic experience to find the other side of the storm and find happiness in the midst of healing.

Cole saw a shell of a woman but that shell even broken stood tall to him like a fortress on the night that changed both of their lives. 

One moment and one choice completely shook the foundation of an entire town. It put in place a set of events that would completely change everyone involved.
This sweet love story has touched me so deeply. I simply can't express how beautifully moved and swept away I was on every page. The connection between Cole and Poppy was not only emotional , passionate and amazing. It was just beautiful. 
 Tears were shed, laughing occurred and swooning really had me sighing with happiness. I recommend anyone who believes in second chances and life after loss to give this a try. You'll not regret it.
Be prepared for the most perfect book boyfriend I've read in a long time. But Most of all prepare for an epic love story . 

  “I hear you’re saying yes to everything today?” I chased a bite of macaroni with some water. She nodded, smiling again as she chewed. “A guy could take advantage of that.” Her chewing stopped and her blue eyes snapped to mine. “Me, for example. I could use this to get exactly what I want.” I didn’t miss the way her eyes flared, and damn, it was sexy. If things were farther along—if this were a year from now and we were in a different place—I could have used this game to have her moaning yes all night long. But we weren’t there, and I wasn’t a complete asshole. But I did love to tease. “Poppy,” I whispered, leaning closer. Her breaths were shallow as she waited. “Will you bring me both the mixed berry and the apple pie?” She blinked twice, then a hand flew over her mouth—still full of salad—covering it as she laughed. “Yes.” I grinned, sitting back in my chair and digging into my food. “Maybe you can tell me more about this list too? It seems like every time I see you you’re on to something new.” Her hand fell. “You really want to know?” “I really want to know.”
