Review for Out of Reach by Missy Johnson



Title: Out of Reach 


Author: Missy Johnson


Release Date: May 8, 2014



My best friend was dying and I was in love with his girl.

Andy and I had been best friends since we were eight-years old.

Watching him slowly fade away, ever closer to his final breath, made me so incredibly angry. I knew there was nothing I could do to change it–I had given in to despair, but Andy had not. He had one last hand to play.

He wasn’t going to simply sit back and wait for Death to claim him–not Andy. He was going to live life until he couldn’t hold his eyes open any longer.

Andy didn’t want to die in some sterile hospital and asked me to take him and Emily to the beach. It would be our last road trip together.

Emily. Emily was a problem for me.

I harbored a secret that would have torn our friendship apart. I was in love with Andy’s girl, and had been since she’d walked into our sixth grade class, so many years ago.

So what kind of person am I? My best friend is dying, and it’s awful–but my heart still aches for his girl. I hate myself for thinking beyond Andy’s death and whether there could ever be a future for Emily and I, but I can’t help it.

I’m in love with her.












This book was sad, it was a beautiful tragedy. I have said this before, I love me a good love triangle but this one had me all torn up in side because one of the people in the love triangle was dying and one was putting his feelings on the back burning because he would rather see his friends happy and in love. My heart broke for Seth, Andy and Emily but all in different ways. This story will send you on a very sad roller coaster ride but you will want to push the characters through their mourning and want to see them move on. But can they? Will they feel guilt? An author has done their job when in the middle of reading the readers clench their chest, gasp for air or try to hold back the tears that want to fall down their face while a story unfolds right in front of their eyes. And of course smiling at their kindle or paperback like they’re crazy! Well you will do all of those with this read! You will have to read to find out. I give this book 4.5 stars!






Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she’s a cat, a cat who thinks he’s a dog…you get the picture).

When she’s not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.
