“You’re mine and I’m yours. We’ll make our lives good together. We’ll have babies. We’ll buy a house. We’ll grow old together until we can’t see the other’s faults. We’ll be together forever. And then, when we’re done on this earth, we’ll go out together, because I deserve happy, and so do you. We’re fucking due, and I fucking love you.”
Absolutely AMAZING book! Twists and turns. Ups and downs. Heartbreak and happiness. Tears of joy and ugly cries. I definitely recommend this book!!
