Emilia is somehow every boyish fantasy, ever divorced dad practical wish, and every filthy grown man desire that I’ve ever had. She’s brought a weary part of me back to life, and I want to give it all back to her. Every night and day.

“We’re leaving in like five minutes,” Shane says apologetically. “I promised Willa I’d pick up matzo ball soup from Canter’s on the way home.”
“And I promised Kat I wouldn’t stay here past ten because I don’t want to.”
“I knew it.” I shake my head. It’s barely ten o-clock. “I should have come earlier. But I didn’t want to.”

"She's the big bang. The big picture. The biggest dork we know. And every little magical thing that reminds me we're made of stardust - old as the universe and new as each breath."
Every love story has a happily ever after if you look for it.
