    1. ** ARC provided by the author for an honest review ** There are few novels that make me sob and laugh at the same time and ever rarer times when I am left reeling after what I have just read. To My Loves by Jen Cousineau was one of those rare magical reads that pulled on every one of my heartstrings with every turn of the page. This talented author did a fantastic job at knowing just when to inject humor into the story line that at times was somber and heartbreaking. Told through the voice of Pe [...]

    5. "It was like breathing deep only to realize I was submerged under water. I was drowning, and there wasn't a damn thing I could do about it."I will be the first to tell you that I'm a very emotional person. Certain books get to me--get me right in the feels. This book grabbed ahold of my emotions and ran!I knew just from reading the blurb that this story was going to hard to read. Not because you can clearly tell that there would be tragedy, but because I knew it involved children. That gets me e [...]

    6. Okay, so I think I should give you a service announcement: Tissues. That's right. TISSUES. Have lots of them on hand. I was reaching for them because I was crying at regular intervals. And not the graceful sobs of a lady but the ugly balling-my-eyes-out-and-wipe-my-nose-on-my-sleeve. So consider yourselves warned! :)Now this story is nothing like anything I've read. It is gut wrenching and heart constricting. And while it is so hauntingly sad, there are so many beautiful moments that touch your [...]

    7. I don't usually do the ugly cry. Don't get me wrong; it's not unusual for a good book to make me sniffle a little but for me to do the extended, full-on, tear-streaming, nose-running, tissue-box emptying ugly cry? Not really. This book made me ugly cry.Peyton and her only brother, Colton, lose their parents when Peyton is just 18. It's just the first of a series of heartbreaking events that life throws at Peyton. How Peyton deals with these events is the crux of the story, which is told entirely [...]

    8. Holy cow!!!! I cried and cried at the end. Do not read without a box of tissues!!! This story is amazing and it's actually my first book by Jen. I just can't get over what happens to Peyton. I absolutely love the cover and at the end of the book Jen says that it's her girls with her best friend on the cover. Peyton is an amazing character and she grows throughout the book. What she agrees to do for her brother and sister-in-law is a selfless gift (she hopes she never has to actually do because s [...]

    10. 4 stars I just finished To My Loves, and I have tears running down my face. With everything that happened in this story, it was bound to happen. After everything was said and done, I did enjoy it this book. In all fairness of an "honest review", I'm going to play devil's advocate, so please don't get mad or offended! There were two events that took place that bothered me. First, was the situation between Peyton and Jesse in the beginning of the story. Seriously?? I know everyone thinks different [...]

    11. Wow what an emotional ride this one was for me! Best damn book I've read all year!! I wish there was a way of giving more than 5 stars because it's worth so much more than that!! I was hooked from the first paragraph and it only got better and better from there!!?I will admit that with many personal issues in my life at the moment, I wasn't sure I was gonna finish this one. Not because it wast great but because it was very close to home so I pretty much sobbed from 81% till the end! But I did fi [...]

    12. Let me begin this review by saying you better grab a box of tissues before you begin this book, because you are going to need them. ‘To My Loves’ is one of the most beautiful stories I have ever read. Peyton is such a strong, brave, beautiful woman and a character I am sure many people will look up to and relate to. She has been dealt one hell of a hand in life, but she deals with it in such a heroic way. Life just keeps trying to push Peyton over but she tackles everything life throws at he [...]

    15. 5 tissue box readBeautifully written with some wonderful characters, while not a standard romance story To My Loves still is a love story, just about all the kinds of love we have in our lives.This was an ugly cry book for me and I NEVER ugly cry. Tearing up yes, but multiple tissue cries, no. I loved the journal entries to Peyton's nieces and the story flowed so smoothly I read it in one sitting. One (small) quibble I had was regarding whether some of the language the children used was appropri [...]

    16. There are so many things to say about this novel, yet there is also so very little. The reason for there being so very little is because I can’t form words to say how good this book was. I just finished it and I didn't want it to end.This one is a definite must read. You won't want to put it down because I honestly couldn't. You will want to have tissues ready, but also be prepared to smile. This story will remain with me for a very long time. It has left me with a feeling I can’t explain. I [...]

    17. I received this book as an exchange of an honest review.If I could, I'd give 6 stars for this book.I have no words to begin to describe how much I loved this story.Tissues are definitely needed.Peyton underwent many losses and disappointments in her life, but with time things seem to settle for her, and when Hunter finally has the courage to open up to her, a bad event appears and changes the whole course of things.A beautiful and heartbreaking story. I just loved all the characters, except for [...]

Sure they have they friends/family, but turn of events happen. Just remember to take time out of your busy day to truly live!I have not cried so much in so long. To see so much happen is unbearable.

    20. A emotional rollercoasterThis was such a gut wrenching and emotional book. This was my first book from this author and I can honestly say it won't be my last. How much heartbreaking can one person take. I cried and bawled throughout this book. I would say it's not a book for a lot of people especially if you experience depression in your life. This book is filled with trials and tribulations. This author has such a amazing ability to bring the reader in and hold them hostage from beginning to en [...]

    21. I did not expect the emotions this book would pull out of me. It is a gripping tale of Peyton's life, and how you have to be strong no matter what life throws your way.Peyton endures divorce, death, joy, happiness, and unconditional love. This story will require a full box of tissues, but it is worth the puffy eyes and red nose. The journal entries in the book MAKE the book. If you have read other books by Jen Cousineau, this is different, but in a wonderful way. I highly recommend To My Loves t [...]

    22. My heart is shattered. Broken into tiny pieces. I ugly cried. It's not fair. Peyton deserved so much in life and she was dealt a very crappy hand. God, I just can't even imagine. I'm still crying!I'm literally speechless as I sit here to type this and find myself deleting things because I don't want to give much away. To me this was such a beautiful story and it makes me realize just how precious life is. How you should just live life and know your worth. If you're not happy only you have the po [...]

    23. Such an emotional read. At one point, I put the book down and didn't think I could finish it. So much happens in this book and poor Peyton keeps getting more and more bad luck. I can't help but want to hug her. Nap happy that she had her best friend Taylor, Ashton and Hunter there for her and the girls. All I can say is wow!!! Grab yourselves some tissues when you sit down and read this. I love how the cover is actually the authors girls! Amazing emotional read! Received ARC in exchange for hone [...]

    24. To My Loves is an emotional read. I usually just get teary-eyed or shed a tear or two when a scene gets to me while reading a book, but with this book, I cried. With my shoulders shaking and loud sobs. Not once. Not twice. No, Jen just couldn't give us one heartbreaking turn of events. She gave us a LOT. Now let's talk about the main character. I won't go into detail, but I liked the development on Peyton's character. I admit, I didn't like her at first. I thought she was really stupid. Naive. I [...]

    25. When I want to recall when it was my last ugly cry read I need to go way back in time because they generally leaves me with a very bitter taste but this book is worthy some salty tears. Beautifully written, heart wrenching and with a deep message about crucial moments when we need to make decisions and we are at a cross road. Enjoy life at its most or give up? This story is amazing and I highly recommend it to anyone willing to really enjoy an emotional ride.Do yourself a favour and read it. It [...]

    26. I gave this book 5 stars! I'm on an emotional roller coaster with this book. From the start to finish you will need a box of tissues, a glass of wine, and a comfortable spot. You will not be able to put it down.Jen, I think this is some of your best work. I'm already having withdrawals. Please tell me you plan on doing Taylor and maybe a Hunter on stories!! This book you will fall in love with the main character as well as many of the secondary characters. You will have withdrawals! The emotions [...]

    27. Heartbreakingly BeautifulSometimes our lives are altered in way in which we would have never imagine. And sometimes the changes that seem like God is playing a cruel joke on us, but it is really a blessing in disguise. And sometimes, life is just plain unfair. This book touches on all those points, while taking the reader on an emotional journey. My heart was repeatedly broken, repaired, and broken againl while I was being filled with a sense of love, hope, and strength. Wonderful story.

If you want something to that will touch your heart then this is the story for you.Review by Chantelle

    29. A spectacular "work of fiction with real life events" book. ("Words used by the author to describe how To My Loves came about"). From the start of the book to the very end, this book was a roller coaster of emotions (A lot of ups and downs with a few wicked curves thrown in). I think this is a must read book. My only suggestion is, if you are an emotional reader, do not read this book in public if you don't want to explain why you are crying.

    30. Wow! This book had me crying through the whole story. Peyton is such a strong, loving, and caring woman. It broke my heart every time something happened. This is a heart warming and touching story. It will have you in tears so much. It also have so much love in it too. Definitely an one-click buy. If you want something to that will touch your heart then this is the story for you.
