If you love someone, if you think you could make them happy for the rest of your life together, then nothing should stop you. You should be prepared to take them as they are and deal with the consequences. Relationships aren’t neat and clean. They’re ugly and messy, and they make almost no sense except to the two people in them. That’s what I think. I think if you truly love someone, you accept the circumstances; you don’t hide behind them.

We are tied to each other. We can hate and love, miss and loathe each other all within the same breath. We can never want to see each other again while never wanting to let go.

Timing seems like an excuse. Extenuating circumstances is an excuse. If you love someone, if you think you could make them happy for the rest of your life together, then nothing should stop you. You should be prepared to take them as they are and deal with the consequences. Relationships aren’t neat and clean. They’re ugly and messy, and they make almost no sense except to the two people in them. That’s what I think. I think if you truly love someone, you accept the circumstances; you don’t hide behind them.

The sun rises the next day after mothers lose their babies, after men lose their wives, after countries lose wars. The sun will rise no matter what pain we encounter. No matter how much we believe the world to be over, the sun will rise.

Hey Amy! What are your all time favorite modern romance books! I just read The Hating Game, Back to You, Never Sweeter, and Bully) btw. Do you have any recs that are similar to those? :) Ps your new drabble was amazing!

Thank you! I’m going through my GR romance list, let’s see…

The Deal by Elle Kennedy
Spotless by Camilla Monk
After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid (this is angsty af, not your typical romance read, but it gave me all the feels and while it was painful to read, i felt revived by the end)
Act Like It by Lucy Parker
Must Love Otters by Eliza Gordon
His Royal Secret by Lilah Pace (M/M)
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (also Attachments)
Deeper by  Robin York
Night Owl by M. Pierce (might be a little dark/fucked up)
Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park
The Best Man by Kristan Higgins

those are all modern/contemporary romance books I rated 5 stars and really enjoyed, so hopefully you find something there you like as well and fit your criteria!

I’m just going to do my best and live under the assumption that if there are things in this life that we are supposed to do, if there are people in this world we are supposed to love, we’ll find them.
