Book Couple Challenge Day 20
Today’s topic is disability.
Well this is one of the few occurences where I have only one book to talk about but what book!
Sarah and Grant from Priceless by Linda Kage
This book was just fantastic! Talking about romance when one of the main character as a disability is never easy. I really admire Linda Kage as Sarah’s disability was certainly not minor but I believed in the romance, in the desire, in everything!
Three things in my life were fact.
I needed Sarah to survive.
I needed sex to remain sane.
And I could never mix sex with Sarah.
I just knew—deep in my marrow—that if I did, I’d somehow lose her. All my deepest darkest secrets would crack open, bleed out, and ruin everything between us. I wouldn’t unleash the shit inside me on my worst enemy, let alone her. So she stayed strictly in the friend zone.
People probably thought I never went there with her because of her cerebral palsy, but f*ck them. She knew she was the most important person in my world, and I wasn’t about to risk hurting our relationship just to make my c*ck happy.
Until the moment she begged me to take her virginity.
Now it’s all about to hit the fan, because how the hell do you resist the one person forbidden to you when she says please?
If you’re looking for something:
-sweet and cute;
-with a very protective hot hero and a courageous girl suffering from a severe health condition;
-childhood friends to lover romance;
-not too angsty;
-very enlightening on the day to day ordeals for people suffering from cerebral palsy?
This is your book!
Yes Sam has cerebral palsy, yes she can’t walk and has tremors in her limbs and sometime a little drool on the lips but no, this is not a pity party. She is a fighter and the book is not depressing in the least. It’s about hope, pure determination to improve her condition and live a normal life. It’s about friendship and a whole web of supportive friends and family. It’s about an incredible friend falling for his best friend and wanting to live at her side and build a family.
I was impressed by the author’s choice to go for a “girl in a wheelchair” and make her an incredibly courageous and exceptional heroine, dreaming of a “normal” life where she would be considered as independant and have a right to enjoy every pleasure women her age get to experience. It was a dare and it’s a winning bet!
“This right here—every single piece of you—is very precious cargo to me. If anyone mistreated it, I’d lose my sh@t. You’re not just my best friend, you’re my sanity. You’re priceless, Sarah.”
