She’s everything I am not…yet somehow, she sees through my darkness.
She doesn’t see me as broken.
She sees me as the man I’m fighting so hard to be.
“‘It was my birthday yesterday and I still have to have my cake. There’s a bakery around the corner that closes in five minutes, and if you don’t shut up and leave, I’m not going to get my birthday cake and I bloody well love cake.’ I think I stamp my foot, but I’m too busy thinking about cake to notice.”
“I clench my jaw and wish the same wish that I wish I knew how to stop wishing.”
“I’m not crafty… at all. Pinterest looks like prison to me.”
“I feel something in my body when I’m around you that I have never felt in all my life, Vi. I want to dive in with your and figure it out. I want us to be something.”
“Your forever is mine, Vi. Your forever belongs to me… whether you’re ready to accept it or not.”
“I’ve loved you for so many moments, and I don’t want to waste any more time not telling you.”
I love/hate Amy Daws. She is brilliant! Amy Daws writes enthralling, relevant, and steamy love stories with endearing and lively, yet deeply flawed characters. However, she makes me cry…. and I do NOT like to cry. I am no glutton for punishment, so it may seem ill-advised that I continue to allow her to wreck me… gut me… turn me inside out and upside down. I continue to chase her work like a rabid fan-girl simply because I adore her addicting, oh so alluring, sparkling, and highly emotive storytelling. She has mad skills as it is a rare occurrence for this cold-hearted cougar to stop reading and blubber into her wine goblet – and I will even confess it was not just once… but three times! Sigh. The only criticism I can offer up for her latest work is there were very limited Frank sightings. Please Ms. Daws, we need more Frank and Beans!
