I believe in love at first sight.
Now I know soulmates exist.
Nothing has ever been easy for us.
Every fight, every struggle, has been worth it.
I’m stubborn, but what woman isn’t?
She’s hard work and I love the overtime.
He’s frustrating and unpredictable. I hope he never changes.
I love driving her crazy. That’s half the fun.
Lou’s sexy curls.
Honeybee’s pink nose.
He still looks at me like I’m precious and unflawed.
She treats me like I’m the center of her world.
Our future will be full of happiness.
Despite everything, we’re two of the lucky ones.
I took the bait.
She was a lucky catch.
He is the wind in my sail.
She’s the anchor that grounds me.
The wake our love made is beautiful.
Every day I thank God for her.
No matter the hurdles, we’ve jumped them side-by-side.
No matter the obstacles, we’ve made it through together.
For better or for worse, I’d do it again.
I’ll love and protect her all the days of my life.
We made it.
We always will.
My 5 star review of Anchor by M. Mabie
It’s crazy the amount of power these authors have with our emotions. They have the power to make us smile like there’s no tomorrow- and also the power to dash all of our hopes with three words- like “Happy 2010. Goodbye.” And the power to give us hope, and a little faith- with a little paragraph like, “The best things are worth waiting for, honeybee. Otherwise fairytales would start with happily ever after” So while Mabie completely took that power and devastated my heart in Bait and Sail; she totally mended it with Anchor.
Have you ever read a book and you just LOVE the voice the author has? Not in literal terms, that is, but just- the words that flow from their fingertips are so absolutely brilliant you fall in love with their author voice. Mabie has that DOWN. Like down to a science. Everything about it is wickedly sinful. How she speaks, is how I speak to my friends. Her writing isn’t dumbed down at all, but it’s not haughty either- and it doesn’t sound pretentious- like the characters are above average geniuses. Its just GOOD. She has that snark about her author voice, that I freaking love. And if you didn’t believe in Casey and Blake’s relationship in Bait and Sail you are SO gonna believe in it after Anchor.
“She leaned into me for a kiss and before our mouths met she murmured, “I love you.” She tasted like forever.”
While Sail wasn’t my absolute fave (don’t kill me.) Bait was more of that heart pumping angst I am used to from Mabie, she really redeemed herself with Anchor, and blew it completely out of the water. I loved Blake and Casey’s POV- but I loved those random chapters thrown in there from Reggie and Audrey, that was a killer idea- and groovy set up for future books (AHEM- TROY AND AUDREY PLEASE!)
“He bewitched me.
Some books you read, and they’re like gorilla glue on your heart- they stick to you. And its super annoying, you can’t get rid of it, you can’t touch it- it’s there, just being all sticky and weird, wired into your arteries, pumping and flowing through your veins- and when you think you get rid of this gorilla glue- MORE shows up in its place. And so your like- F*** it, just leave it- it’s never leaving me. Yeah- that’s Mabie’s Wake series for sure. So don’t be stupid, and read all of these books stat. And just because, get the paperbacks, cause they is pretty. Enjoy.
“Life with her made the blood pound harder in my chest. Made every minute worth remembering. Made working hard and building a life for my family a privilege.”
