I’ve long respected a story that isn’t just enthralling, but that really pulls at your heartstrings and makes you think about the vistas of life and your own potential.
This week, I’m going to try something different for the Beth’s Book of the Week Giveaway. I’ll give away a copy of talented author Megan Hart’s book, Dirty, to one person who comments along with a link to a video or short documentary to something that touched you. There’s no specifics here, it might be a music video, an old movie clip or a news documentary…anything, really, that moved you and you feel comfortable sharing. like this one I saw recently: (Page down to CNN video).
(Please note, that I reserve the right to delete any links that are not sent in the spirit of this post, or that potentially would offend a majority of the readers).
So…that’s the challenge, here’s the book if you choose to take it!
I met him at the candy store. He turned around and smiled at me and I was surprised enough to smile back. This was not a children’s candy store, mind you — this was the kind of place you went to buy expensive imported chocolate truffles for your boss’s wife because you felt guilty for having sex with him when you were both at a conference in Milwaukee. Hypothetically speaking, of course.
I’ve been hit on plenty of times, mostly by men with little finesse who thought what was between their legs made up for what they lacked between their ears. Sometimes I went home with them anyway, just because it felt good to want and be wanted, even if it was mostly fake.
The problem with wanting is that it’s like pouring water into a vase full of stones. It fills you up before you know it, leaving no room for anything else. I don’t apologize for who I am or what I’ve done in — or out — of bed. I have my job, my house and my life, and for a long time I haven’t wanted anything else.
Until Dan. Until now.
