It was a Friday night and I was working late.
I was at a social event and I saw him.
He looked at me with a big smile and said, “Hi, I’m Alex.”
It was the first time I had ever heard his name.
Alex was short, dark hair, olive skin and he had an unusual haircut.
He was wearing a black button down shirt and a nice pair of dark jeans.
He looked like a commercial or a model.
It was the first time I had seen him but I knew I had seen him before.
I told him that I remembered him from the neighborhood.
He said, “Yeah, I used to play soccer with your brother.
He was the star.”
We talked for a few minutes and then he asked me what I was working on.
I told him and we agreed to meet later.
Alex was attractive and he was always happy.
He had a warm smile that made me feel comfortable.
I wanted to get to know him and I was hoping that we could become friends.
I got off work and drove home.
As I was leaving my neighborhood I thought I saw Alex walking on the sidewalk.
I pulled over and I got out of my car.
I thought I saw him look at me and he said, “Hey.
What are you doing?”
I said, “I’m going home.
What are you doing?”
He said, “I’m going to meet someone.
I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings.
I said, “I’m not mad.
I was just surprised.
I thought you were someone else.”
He smiled and said, “No.
You don’t know who I am?”
I said, “No.
I’m not into the whole internet thing.
I’m a pretty busy person.
I was just surprised.”
He said, “I was just playing with you.”
He said, “My name is Alex.”
I said, “I’m sorry.
I’m having dinner with my family.
It was nice meeting you.”
He said, “Yeah, I hope we meet again.
I didn’t know what to say so I said, “Okay.”
He smiled and walked away.
I thought he was a good looking guy and he seemed to be sincere but I was still a little confused about him.
I was still wondering about him when I got home.
I thought about him all night and I couldn’t get him out of my mind.
I told my wife about him but she didn’t get it.
She said, “Oh.
I’ll ask him to dinner some time.
It might just be a friend.
You should keep him in the back of your mind.
You never know.
It might be him.
Don’t you trust me?
I said, “I’m not sure.
A love story that starts and ends in 24 hours.
Yes, we had the dramatic first time meeting, and the love at first sight moment when she decided to talk to him.
I love that this book shows that love can blossom in the most unexpected of places.
I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
It was funny and I was totally surprised.
There was a lot of history with her grandmother, and I loved it.
I can’t wait to read more books by Emily Giffin, and I’ll definitely be reading more of her books.
Darlene’s mum has made the mistake of bringing home a man she met through a dating site.
Darlene’s mum had met this guy before, but that time he was a long term friend of her brothers.
This time he’s moving in to be a husband and a father to Darlene.
Will he be a good husband and father, or will he cheat and take off?
I loved this story.
I thought it was an amazing story of a mother’s love and how a daughter’s relationship with her mother is important.
Darlene’s mum was a great mother, and she raised her daughter right, but she did not know the right things to do and say.
The father was a great father, he loved his daughter with all of his heart.
I was so happy when he finally came to his senses and wanted her to be with him.
I was expecting him to give her up, but he didn’t. I hope that Darlene can forgive him for his mistakes.
I really want to read more about the family because they are great characters.
I would recommend this book to anyone, it was a great book that I couldn’t put down.
I was hooked and it was great to read it at night.
