words of love

Dear Darcy,

Sorry if that sounds a bit formal. But then you’ll never read this letter anyway so I suppose it doesn’t really matter.

I’m writing this letter because there’s something I’ve been meaning to tell you. It all started about a year ago. At least, I think it did… it’s hard to put an exact date on it.

I know we’ve been friends as long as either of us can remember, but about a year ago something happened. I don’t remember exactly what we’d been doing, but I remember that it was a Friday, a sunny Friday like today. I do remember us both sitting on the steps outside the old courthouse eating ice creams. That was the precise moment—that time when we were both sitting on the courthouse steps. I remember looking at you, as the sun caught your blonde hair, and you smiled at me, and you asked me what I was staring at, and that’s when I realised that I love you.

This will probably be strange for you to hear. At least it would be if I was ever brave enough to give you this letter. If I did give ever give this letter to you, you would probably wonder why it’s taken me a whole year to tell you how I feel. The short answer is that I’m a coward, but it’s also because I’ve been afraid of risking our friendship. I love you, but I also love you as a friend, and if things ever became awkward between us I couldn’t bear it.

So there you go. That’s the truth.

Martin

P.S. One day, I might be man enough to actually tell you.

I’ve got everything I’ve ever wanted
But never what I really needed
Then looking into your eyes
I’ve discovered what I’ve been missing
The empty pieces of me soul have collided
To make me whole
Now I understand
Love, Exactly 

(Chorus)In your eyes
I see myself as complete
In your eyes
I understand the things I need
In your arms
I feel no judgment
In your arms
I know Love, Exactly 

I’ve lived my life
Walking around half empty
Wondering what love is
Not knowing if I’d ever felt it
Until you came into my life
I’ve never truly been alive
Vanity always got in the way
Finding yourself in someone else’s arms
Now I know my place
Is by your side
Your arms is the only place I wish to reside 

(Chorus) In your eyes
I see myself as complete
In your eyes
I understand the things I need
In your arms
I feel no judgment
In your arms
I know Love, Exactly 

Now there’s nothing left to do
But live a blissful life with you
You’re everything I ever needed
Everything I never knew
You’re love, exactly
You’re love, exactly 

(Chorus) In your eyes
I see myself as complete
In your eyes
I understand the things I need
In your arms
I feel no judgment
In your arms
I know Love, Exactly

You’re my love, exactly
I know it’s true
You’re my love, exactly
My heart beats only for you

Synopsis

Emma Walker was a writer who’d lost herself to someone else’s anger–who had given up on ever feeling like herself again.
Evan Levesque was a rock-god–the one all the woman wanted, but he’d never gotten used to the loneliness between the stage and real life.

With just one cup of coffee they’ll begin a journey of self-discovery at each others sides, but can Emma handle Evan’s fame while dealing with her own demons? Emma’s checkered personal past, a bad relationship that haunts the edges of her memories, threatens to make everything implode on them when Evan takes matters into his own hands.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but your words…they’ll destroy my soul–Can Emma handle being put back together and facing who she’s become because of it?

I am delighted to welcome my beautiful friend Ann to the blog today. Ann wrote this post especialy for me because I love the romance in her books, even thoguh she would rather torture her charcters than write the mushy, she sucked it up and wrote this for me :)   Prepare to swoon:

Emma –

If I could I would press all of my feelings into one thing, a diamond from coal, a pearl and a promise, I would. Sometimes, gifts aren’t enough. Words, real words, have permanence. Texts are great, but they never say enough. How can I possibly cram everything into a few character spaces? How can a few words possibly convey the depth of what I feel?

I look back at my life before you, and cringe. What a mess. Dad’s puppet, parties and wrong decisions, horrid choice in friends… I never knew how bad it all was until I woke up with Daniel’s heart beating in my chest, constantly whispering your name. I opened my eyes, and the darkness was peeled away. Death changed me. Death saved my life. And at such a high cost! I’ll never be able to express how sorry I am that my resurrection ruined so many other lives. Especially Daniel’s. I know how much he loved you—his heart tells me every day. I know his hopes and dreams for you two, because they’re mine now. How can I ever be okay with being the reason something so…perfect…was destroyed?

Everything that’s happened, everything we went through, it’s all a big mess of darkness and loss and pain, and in the middle is the perfect, shining light. You. I’m damaged. I’m tainted and can’t scrub it away. Despite the horrors my father sewed into me, despite what he stole from you, you still loved me. You loved me. You brought me to life, Emma.

I’ll never forget the first moment I saw you, I mean, really saw you. Because you were there, behind my eyes from the moment I came back to life, a dream, an angel. Then I saw you at the Walk-Up window, real and alive. My heart raced, nerves tingled, I burned to touch you. It took everything in me not to grab you up and kiss you breathless. Nothing could keep me away for long. So much of what’s in me needed to be with you. It was exhilarating, terrifying to realize my heart was never mine. It was always yours. Seeing you, touching you, kissing you, all dreams I never thought I deserved to have come true. And so much better than any fantasy I ever entertained. The way it gets hard to breathe, the way my stolen heart pounds when I see you reminds me every day how lucky I am you choose to love me back. I’m yours now. Not just in heart, but body and soul, past and future.

And I can say future—if you’ll have me—I know you’re the only girl this heart will ever beat for. Not just because you were in it before it was in me, but that every other part of me loves you, too. You are sweet, funny, feisty, loyal, loving, gorgeous, too. You saw past what I was to who I am. You stood up to my father. You stuck by me through it all. If it takes the rest of my life, I will show you just how much you truly mean to me. I will breathe my last breath, feel this heart beat its last, for you.

I love you.

Ever in my heart,

Alex

Words of Love with Gage and Skyla – Celestra series by Addison Moore

words of love

Huge thanks to Addison Moore for kindly writing a beautiful guest post today highlighting her charactes from the Celestra series. ENJOY

Dear Skyla,

From the beginning I was mesmerized by you. You held my entire world in the palm of your hand. When you came to the island it was as if a dream had come to life and in a way you did. All of those dreams, those visions, those waking fantasies that played on a loop were nothing compared to being near you in the flesh.

You’re the air I breathe. You’re the universe encompassed in flesh, and I would die if you chose me to spend the rest of your life with. Whatever the future brings—wherever your heart leads you to, just know I’m forever yours.

Love,

Gage

Synopsis from Fantastic Fiction

17-year-olds Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey Best grew up as identical triplets… until they discovered a shocking family secret. They’re actually closer than sisters, they’re clones. Hiding from a government agency that would expose them, the Best family appears to consist of a single mother with one daughter named Elizabeth. Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey take turns going to school, attending social engagements, and a group mindset has always been a de facto part of life…

Then Lizzie meets Sean Kelly, a guy who seems to see into her very soul. As their relationship develops, Lizzie realizes that she’s not a carbon copy of her sisters; she’s an individual with unique dreams and desires, and digging deeper into her background, Lizzie begins to dismantle the delicate balance of an unusual family that only science could have created.
