Whew! Let’s hope my post lives up to all the hype.
Someone just asked me a question about romance, and since my last post was about edgy, I figured this would fit here just fine.
Here you go, here’s my fave contemporary romance EVER!
And I haven’t read the book yet, but it’s in the to do chute.
THAT BEING SAID, I saw the movie, which I’m told holds true to the book. SUZANNE’S DIARY FOR NICHOLAS, by James Patterson. Yes, Patterson, and no woman was raped, tortured, or anything as equally disturbing. Just a wonderful, albeit, a bit out of the box, romance.
Christina Applegate, Johnathon Schaech, and Kathleen Rose Perkins bring to life a sweet, touching, never to forget story of lost love and love found again.
So, for anyone out there who wants to know what I like in a romance, it’s the boy meets girl with a lot of problems to fend off. Not just a small situation that thwarts the romance for a time, but something so big, it sends heads reeling until the love can find a way to “make it all better.”
In Diaries, you have a romance that you feel is doomed right from the start. And yet, you are unable to stop watching(reading) because you just know it has to have a good ending. Then…
WHAM, it socks you in the gut and you wonder “Whuhappened?”
Only then do the characters warm your heart again before the next, “Huh? Where did that come from?”
If you see only one movie this year, rent the 2005 TV movie based on James Patterson’s book. You will not be sorry. Oh, yeah, and to make it that much sweeter, the story is about a publishing editor. How great is that? Just bring a huge box of tissues and be prepared to watch it right to the end.
Ahh, love sweet love!
