When simple becomes much more complicated…
Raven Bloomberg didn’t even pack an overnight bag so the turn of events was a surprise to say the least. She was shocked to find herself spending the Valentine’s weekend sharing a hotel room with a complete stranger. She didn’t know much about Pierce Ashton except he was a sexy, handsome and compelling man who shared her affinity for art. The rest she was going to have to learn along the way…
“His body screams that it knows how to handle women, and I’m not talking about a little…. I’m talking about headboard-banging-against-the-wall-hoarse-voice-from-screaming-out-his-name handle.”
To say Raven’s and Pierce’s romance moved at the speed of sound is putting it mildly. Surprisingly, the reasons why they shared a room seemed quite plausible. How they quickly moved from strangers to lovers is definitely a nod to (at least) ‘lust at first sight’. Or is it? A quick plot turn adds an interesting dimension to the story that was quite unexpected.
Given the length of the story it is not a surprise that the character development was sparse. What it did include though was a refreshing take on insta-love.

Where to Find A.M. Willard

“Come, I want to show you my favorite section here,” he says while dragging me behind him. Now it’s as if he’s a kid in the candy store. Laughter escapes from me while I’m being pulled. I glimpse back and forth between everything as it’s covered in greenery and wonder what it would’ve been like back in the day. As we slow, I notice the Ragnaie up ahead, and I pray that he’s going to say this is his favorite spot. I really want to walk underneath it.
“You coming?” he asks, tilting his head in that direction. I offer the biggest goofy smile ever and follow along. I take in the green trees that cascade over the gravel path making a canopy above our heads. The sunlight peers through open sections of the trees above, creating a spotlight effect down toward the road as we walk along. Pierce takes my hand into his and squeezes it a little more than he has before. I close my eyes and glide through as I imagine being here with my fiancĂ© or lover in the future. We could come here for him to kneel down and propose to me, or to celebrate our first year of being wed.
I stop and breathe in the air around us. I want to memorize this moment for as long as I can. I want to remember exactly what it smells like, the sounds of the birds chirping, and the slight creaking of the branches. I picture that it’s the sound of the branches intertwining more into each other, forming a tighter bond than before. The hopeless romantic in me wonders if that’s the sound that two lovers’ hearts make. When two people who love each other unconditionally grow old together, do their branches mend together to make a canopy of their souls?
