But there's another kind of love. One that gives you the courage to be better than you are, not less than you are. One that makes you feel that anything is possible.

I've been thinking of you constantly since i left, wondering why the journey i'm on seemed to have led through you. I know my journey''s not over yet, and that life is a winding path, but i can only hope it somehow circles back to the place i belong. That's how i think of it now. I belong with you.

Before we met, i was as lost as a person could be and yet you saw something in me that somehow gave me direction again

The greater the love, the greater the tragedy when it’s over.

“She was struck by the simple truth that sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people...”

“Every time I read to her, it was like I was courting her, because sometimes, just sometimes, she would fall in love with me again, just like she had a long time ago. And that's the most wonderful feeling in the world. How many people are ever given that chance? To have someone you love fall in love with you over and over?”

“But love, I’ve come to understand, is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day.”

What I Did for Love
What I Did for Love: A Novel - Susan Elizabeth Phillips

SEP's books are usually a hit or a miss for me. What I Did for Love is the first one of hers that landed somewhere in between. The story surrounding the main characters in was interesting, as were some of the side characters, but what almost killed the story for me were the hero and heroine.


Georgie would have been an okay heroine if she wasn't paired up with such an ass. It was interesting to watch her slowly take control of her life and transform from a doormat into a person who stands up for herself. But it was painful to watch this transformation because the hero, Bram, was such an awful person.

Bram was horrible to Georgie when they worked with each other on a popular sitcom called "Skip and Scooter". Then when he pops back into her life, with plans to use her to clean up his image, he is once again just an awful person. The only difference is that this time Georgie isn't a 15 year old girl with rose tinted glasses. She knows he's an ass when she agrees to maintain a fake marriage with him, but we see her slowly start to fall for him anyway.


As Georgie slowly starts to change her life, we see Bram maneuvering his way to a huge break for his career that will put him back on the map. While there are a couple of moments that hint at Bram developing feelings for Georgie, he is just such an incorrigible ass that when he does figure it out, you wish Georgie would find someone else. Bram doesn't even go through all that much to make-up for the way he's acted.

Like I said, the story was interesting in a kind of train-wreck way. And I liked the premise of it. But Bram really just killed this book for me.


Side Note: What I Did for Love must have been written during all the Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston drama because hints of that are written all over the characters in this one.

Don't Mess with Texas
Don't Mess with Texas - Christie Craig

I had high hopes for Don't Mess with Texas. It seemed really cute and I had heard a lot of good things about it, but no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't get into it.

Nicki Hunt needs cash because she's flat broke. If she doesn't get any money soon, then she's going to lose her art gallery. After getting a phone call from her wealthy ex-husband, Nicki goes to dinner with him thinking that maybe she'll be able to overlook his cheating ways for a reunion. However he vanishes in the middle of the meal on a phone call and doesn't return. Fuming, Nicki returns to her car only to find her ex, dead and stuffed in the trunk. Nicki is immediately the prime suspect with only P.I., Dallas O'Connor believing she didn't do it.

Craig has a light writing style that I typically enjoy in contemporary romances. However, a lot of the jokes here seemed like cheap shots; such as a gassy dog and birds pooping on nurses. Dallas also didn't work for me. I think he was supposed to be an angsty character who slowly starts finding some happiness, but this just didn't work with the slap-stick comedy tone of the story. The tone made Dallas seem pouty and a bit of a tool. I did like Nicki though. She was an entertaining character and I loved her relationship with her grandmother. Despite that, I probably won't be picking up another book by Craig in the future.
