I was at Pedro’s house and we were making out on the sofa. My head was back, my neck stretched in pleasure, my eyes flicked open and there was his mother looking through the window.

Karen’s Book Buzz Review

If you are looking for a love story that will play with the strings of your heart, have great characters, beautiful scenery with just the right amount of dramatic story telling, then here it is.

Audrina Lane is great at romance amd I’ve read a couple of her books before. Come back and read a review here.

The story tells of Sebaston who has had problems with depression and anxiety, and who could blame him when him when you see what has happened in his life. It’s a change to have male character who are not completely flawless and strong. It makes him seem more real. He falls in love with Lena but believes she is too good for him and his problems will put her her off when she realises. This of course, makes him even more anxious.

Lena has her own problems, although they probably don’t seem like problems to everybody else. How hard can it be to come from a rich family? Well, for a start her family have expectations of her and plans for her future. Unfortunately, they are not what she wants from her life. That brings conflict. Lena also feels anxious that Sebaston will not be interested in someone like her.

This is indeed, a coming of age story and two people fall in love for the first time.

The book you have in your hands follows the path of Mitchell’s semi-autobiographical alter ego, Harry Block.
Through the highs and lows of a job he hates, impending parenthood, the trials and misadventures of redemption, and a rather long and successful in alcoholism.
All the while dealing with the struggles of the written word and writer’s block (no pun intended)

“For too long I messed up, broke up, broke down and hurt you, and then made up just to play that same horrid LP all over again. Yet, as one of them so called writer types the world and his wife claim me to be, I’m a sucker for happy endings. The guy gets the girl, she saves him. He loves her. Fade to fucking black.”

Yet, as one of them so called writer types the world and his wife claim me to be, I’m a sucker for happy endings. The guy gets the girl, she saves him. He loves her. Fade to fucking black.”

“I knew those filthy words, no other women talks as dirty or as flirty. Nor cause my willy-wangler to get more wood than Sherwood fucking Forest.

“Fuck-trumpet…Lou…is that fucking you…What the fuck are you doing in the devils own, glorious fucked up  big red bum hole.”

“Oh hey Harry… how are you today?”

“It’s a very butch thing to do, hiding from your angry woman. Ask any man, they’ll agree. When the women get angry the men get going. I hunker down in a window booth. It’s still early so nobody’s here but me and the waitress. She holds up a cup. I nod, my coffee is on its way.”

“ Don’t get me wrong I love her to the moon and back, wouldn’t be without her. In so many way’s she is the best part of me,  she’s more than a woman to me. Frankly she’s my everything. Yet, her one flaw and she doesn’t have many is that fucking temper, and I’ve put her through more than her fair share of crap in the lifespan of our relationship, to warrant the claws”
