Lots of love for Love & Other Stuff

I could definitely relate to this story of a love affair that COULD have been great. I loved the fairy tale finale. Definitely worth the read. Fantastic flow of conscience. I didn’t want it to end. Awaiting the next instalment. Five stars. ~ Karen B.

This was a great, quick read. I recognized myself from when I experienced two such toxic relationships. The wound does not go away totally, but living well IS the best (I won’t say revenge) way to live out the rest of your life. In the end, was uplifting. ~ Ronnie P.
