Me Without You by Kelly Rimmer

There's not much I can say without giving the story away, other than how much I adore Callum and Lilah.  Their love story is so genuine and heartfelt. 

From the moment they first met, a chance encounter on a ferry, I was hooked.  Lilah is a quirky, vegan, environmental lawyer that tries to live life to the fullest.  And, she does so barefoot whenever possible.  Callum on the other hand, is a workaholic that makes no time for a social life or his family.  They are total opposites in the way they view the world and live life, but they have such an undeniable spark.  It's so cute how they interact and tease each other. 
"She could be barefoot for the rest of our lives and I'd love her disgustingly filthy feet with every bit of strength I had."
Neither is looking for a commitment, so they agree to take their relationship "moment by moment".  But they can't deny what's between them.  They just fit.  What I loved most about this story, was how Lilah's love and eccentricity totally changed Callum's perspective on life and what really matters.  Isn't that what true love does?
"I always wondered if relationships could really be like that, where if a moment lined up just right, you could stand in a crowded room with them and feel only their presence."
This book is beautifully written, and I found myself highlighting like crazy throughout.  I highly recommend this book, but I must warn you, it's one that will make you cry.
