I buried my body beneath the covers and curled around his warmth. With my head rested just where he’d wanted it, I closed my eyes tight and willed the tears away. Doing my best to hide the emptiness consuming me, I concentrated on breathing evenly.
“Always loved you right like this,” he confessed. “Your body so close to mine it feels like we’re the same person.”
I took deep breaths as I thought of all the reasons life was so damn unfair.
“Loved burying my face in your hair, just breathing you in.”
Those were the words most girls dreamed of hearing, and they made our love feel more solid and concrete. But hearing them now was like a slow form of torture, because they were tearing the small amount of control I had left in me to pieces.
“You were made just for me, Sawyer Cooper,” he whispered sleepily. “I truly believe that.”
I squeeze my eyes shut tighter as I curled into him closer.
“Forever my girl.”
Tears rolled along my cheeks as I did all I could to wipe them away before he noticed. I was thankful sleep had taken him over and he was oblivious to the shattering of my soul.

Congrats to C. A. Harms on the release of Don’t Be Afraid! This is the first book I’ve read by her and I can definitely see myself reading more of her books in the future.
I will give you a warning ahead of time that this second chance romance will bring you to tears and have you yelling “whyyyyyy????”
Don’t Be Afraid reminded me of how precious life is and how your entire life can be altered in a heartbeat. As Sawyer and Patrick learned, life is not always fair. I couldn’t imagine having to face the things they did.
I seriously struggled with this book. I wasn’t sure at times if I could actually finish it. My emotions were everywhere and my heart hurt so bad. Not every part of the book was sad though. There were times I found myself laughing and my heart feeling full. I was reminded to live my life to the fullest every single day!
This book absolutely earns 5 stars from me!
Thank you for taking your time to read my review!
