The Story Guy, Mary Ann Rivers 5 BKs / 4.5 WKs
There are no sentences, just words. 
Tender. Focused. Aching. Exquisite.
 Favorite Quotes

Making It LastRuthie Knox 5 BKs / 4 WKs
Marriage is not a happy ever after, but a (mean) choice to love and be loved, remade everyday.
 Favorite Quotes
“Everything could be broken, the light in a marriage gone out, and still be fine.” 
“You gave up the grand illusion that had carried you through the horrific months of early parenthood, and you realized it was never, ever going to get easier.” 

 Lady of PersuasionTessa Dare      4.5* BKs / 4 WKs
Dare’s gift: giving exterior dimension to interiors. Bel’s passionate & shamed. Toby’s charm can’t sustain them. Each coming into their own.
 Favorite Quotes
“She’d fallen in love with her husband and now everything was ruined” (261).

A hero with anxiety issues. A best friend who cries during sex. (I love disaster sex!) And slow, mature realism at the end.
 Favorite Quotes
“What she didn’t know was that the truth sometimes beat you down and chewed you up and ruined your life” (57).
