Wow, it's taken me a very long time to finish the book. Thanks to Goodreads I'm able to tell you that the book didn't really take off until about 35% of the way through the book. I enjoyed the premise of the book, but I just feel that there was too m ...more

What an adorable book. Blitz and Pete were a team. They didn't know that they could have a friend like Uncle Drake. Uncle Drake had a rough life, and Pete took him in and showed him what a real family could be. Blitz now had a friend to look up to.

Kahlil Gibran
“When love beckons to you follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden. For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth......

But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure, Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor, Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears. Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love. And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself."

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully.”
Kahlil Gibran, Le Prophète

Bradley Retired reviewer eh? Humorous. =) Thank you for adding me as a friend. =)


Harlequin Books Hi Tami, I'm pleased to meet you and look forward to discussing books with you. If you ever have any questions about any of the titles on my shelves or about eHarlequin.com and all it has to offer, please ask. I'll be happy to answer. I’ll also update news when I can for example; did you know that in March Silhouette Desires will be putting out their 2000th book? The authors are celebrating with a special blog on eHarlequin.com :).

Julie Eberhart Painter Tami, I always wanted to be a writer, too. Used to hide my homework -- the dog refused to eat it -- so I could get back to the story I was writing. Finally I achieved the first steps in my goal at the age of 52 and have been writing and publishing ever since. It's a long, sometimes frustrating journey. Gary Provost said, it's a manic/depressive career, and the good news comes by phone or email.

Brian Not a novelist, but a short story writer or a poet.
That was a short lived dream, because I'm that literary person... but it was a nice dream.
