They make a deal to get married, for the last three months of her life. 

Just before her eighteenth birthday, the doctors tell Emily she has three months to live. Not much time to complete the bucket list she's had since she was twelve. The first item is the hardest--"Get married"--so she turns to the only man she knows who can help. 

Paul, a barely reformed bad boy, has inherited a fortune from his mother, but his life is defined by his conflicted relationship with his father--a white-collar, organized-crime boss who, thanks to Paul, is being brought up on federal charges. Without Emily's testimony, his father might walk, so Paul agrees to her unconventional proposal. He'll be her husband for her last three months. 

They agree that she'll testify against his father and he'll help her complete her bucket list. It's not supposed to be a true marriage. No consummation. No future. No love. 

No love. 

She's supposed to die, after all, and love might not be enough. 

The complete serial novel (Volumes I-VI) - a USA Today bestseller.

About the Author: Noelle Adams

Noelle handwrote her first romance novel in a spiral-bound notebook when she was twelve, and she hasn’t stopped writing since. She has lived in eight different states and currently resides in Virginia, where she teaches English, reads any book she can get her hands on, and offers tribute to a very spoiled cocker spaniel.

She loves travel, art, history, and ice cream. After spending far too many years of her life in graduate school, she has decided to reorient her priorities and focus on writing contemporary romances.

My Review: I haven't read a book series this impactful in a VERY long time.  The first Listed book drew me in to this world....Noelle was able to capture the two main characters so well.  The two unlikely people who make a deal....and how with the progressive health decline and the "list" things change.  I admit at one point I was literally in tears bawling for them.  Noelle was able to build such a vivid world that I wouldn't be surprised if this was a life story retelling...the emotions and insecurities and little quirks of real life were all packed into this wonderful series.  I was up late into the night last night and read virtually nonstop all day today to complete it.  I couldn't stop and had to know the ending.  This series has earned a 5 out of 5 on my scale.  WELL DONE.
