“I had to get over [him]. For months now, a stone had been sitting on my heart. I'd shed a lot of tears over [him], lost a lot of sleep, eaten a lot of cake batter. Somehow, I had to move on. [Life] would be hell if I didn't shake loose from the grip he had on my heart. I most definitely didn't want to keep feeling this way, alone in a love affair meant for two. Even if he'd felt like The One. Even if I'd always thought we'd end up together. Even if he still had a choke chain on my heart.”
Kristan Higgins, All I Ever Wanted

“You asked why I couldn't forgive you," Nick said, very quietly, and I jumped a little. "It was because you were the love of my life, Harper. And you didn't want to be. That's hard to let go.”
Kristan Higgins, My One and Only

“I'll tell you something, Harpy," he said, his voice almost a whisper now. "It never even occurred to me that we wouldn't make it. And it never occurred to you that we would. You were just waiting for us to go down in flames. I thought we could get through anything.”
Kristan Higgins, My One and Only

Jelly Ann Hello Ma'am! Thanks for adding me as a friend 23 days ago. I just opened my Goodreads account today. And I can't describe the happiness that I felt when I saw your name in my notifications. I love all of your books! I haven't read Catch of the Day though, finding it in the local book store is trickier than usual. I specially liked The Best Man! Your books are the antidote to my crappy days!

Puggy02 Hi Kristan! Thank you so much for accepting my friend invite. I simply LOVE your books and your posts on GR!
