Today's 20 days of love takes a deep look at what love is and isn't from a male's perspective. He gets to the heart of the matter in Victoria Kennedy's, Sometimes Love! Check it out...
About Sometimes Love...
Zoë Browne is on top of the world. She is her own boss, has a business partner who doubles as her best friend, and enjoys the security of a loving, supportive family. All that's missing is her Prince Charming--someone to save her from her happy but loveless life, just like in the pages of her beloved romance novels. When a knock on the door brings her face to face with her would-be hero, Humphrey Pearson, an arrogant but attractive curator with a chip on his shoulder, Zoë soon learns that love isn’t always meant to save the day; sometimes love is meant to change your life.
“I don’t want you to pull me back into your illusion of love and as soon as it starts looking a little different from your imagination, you walk away. The reality is that sometimes love will make you cry, it will make you feel ten feet tall, invincible even. It will make you wonder if you ever really knew it at all. Most of the time, love will make you crazy. Anyone in his right mind would never choose love. It chooses us.”
My king had abdicated his throne for a soapbox and I became frustrated while listening to, what I realized were, words of fear. He was afraid to take another chance and I didn’t like to see him fear anything. But I was not going to be the fall guy. He’d been complicit in a fishing expedition that delivered me right into his hands.
“In the beginning,” I said. “We were both learning our way and you have to admit it all started with a big lie …and a strong physical attraction. You went looking for the person who hurt Madonna and you found me. And I needed to be found. We didn’t have a manual to tell us what to do. Somewhere along the way, we fell out of infatuation and into love…out of make-believe and into reality. It helped us grow, Humphrey. This is real.”
