"I believe that if someone says he loves you more than air, he's lying to you."


brick synopsis

Hope and Cameron made a five-year promise before college. Years pass and they never see each other again. But then one month before his planned wedding to Riley, Cameron looks outside and sees Hope in the pouring rain, watching him.
Now, three years later, Cam has one day – a sick day on this last Friday of summer – to convince the one woman whose very existence breaths life into his lungs, that sometimes love like theirs actually does exist, and it’s that kind of love that lives forever, no matter how hard you fight to forget about it and move on. From the author of non friction and Hope, Sick Day follows one man’s day-long attempt to persuade the love of his life that sometimes it’s okay to break promises if it means keeping the ones that count.

Sick Day is a unique, beautifully written story of two high school sweethearts who find their way back to one another after a broken promise and many years apart. While I am not a big fan of cheating, in real life or books, Sick Day was different in that in covers the topic from an emotional stand point as opposed to the physical aspect. Morgan Parker tells a tale that will stay in your heart and soul long after you have read the last page.

Cameron and Hope are high school sweethearts. Separated when they decided to go to different colleges, they made a promise to each other. But that promise was broken. One month before Cameron is supposed to marry Riley, he sees Hope outside of his house in the rain watching him. The two reconnect but both are in significant relationships. And so, Cameron uses his very last sick day to try to convince Hope that after all these years, she's still the one who holds his heart.

This book was definitely a roller coaster of emotions. I was mad at myself for actually wanting Cam and Hope to cheat on their significant others if it meant they would end up together. I was frustrated with Hope that she denied what she was feeling and kept pushing Cameron away. Morgan threw some comedy in there which lightened some of the heavy emotional scenes. But mostly i was heartbroken...watching them go through the pain and heartache of not having each other during those lost years.
Reading this book left me believing that there is a such thing as soulmates; a love that will last forever and then some. Love is a beautiful thing and when it is real, nothing or no one can stand in its way. This book pulled at my heart strings from cover to cover. I would definitely recommend this story!

brick excerpt

“Don’t make me go home tonight,” I begged.
When her eyes found mine again, she nodded. I didn’t know what it meant, though. Was she nodding because I had to go home, or did she want me to stick around?
“Talk to me,” I begged.
“I can’t,” she whispered. “If I talk, I’ll lose everything I came here for.”
When I opened my mouth and started to speak, she placed a finger over my lips to silence me.
Leaning forward, she brought her mouth to my ear, and in a broken whisper, she asked, “Take me back to the hotel. Love me. Remember me. And then tell me whether or not you exist for me.”
“I don’t need to make love to you to know that, Hope. All I need is to take a breath of you.”
“Then breathe me, all of me,” she begged. “In my hotel room.”
