This scene takes place in the ice castle snow globe when John leads Ann to a hidden bed he has spied:
“…I noticed it right away. And you look even more beautiful lying here than I had imagined.” John reached down and ran the back of his hand down her cheek. He leaned over, kissed her and joined her on the duvet. “It’s really something, isn’t it?” he asked, rolling onto his back and looking up.
“It’s like a dream.”
“It is hard to believe, but I say let’s enjoy it. Let’s forget about everything except us.”
“Forget about Jodee, aboutKaufmann’s Department Store, aboutYorkville, about all the little things that pile up and complicate life?”
“Exactly,” John agreed. “Let’s leave all that behind, and Wheeling Steel andFrankie and trying to make ends meet and worrying about what might happen. We have such a great life together.” He rolled over to be closer to her.
“We really do have a great life. Honestly, the 20 years I’ve spent with you has been the best time of my life.”
“I feel the same way, and you know what?” he asked but did not wait for her to answer, adding, “it’s only going to get better. I say let’s use this magical time as a gift, from me to you, and from you to me because I can share it with you.”
Ann wiggled onto her side and wrapped her arm around his back, pulling him closer. “It is a gift.” She kissed. “Poor, Baby,” she said. “You have been so very patient.”
“You know you make me hot.”
“We have to take care of you now. I’m going to give you a gift.”
John sighed. He knew that Ann knew how to make him feel good. He decided to just let her take control, something he really liked.
This is a great read for February. As I read this book I looked outside and it was a snow storm. I felt as though I could go outside and be in a real life snow globe. I love that these books are personalized and you can choose if you want a wild or mild version. This was the perfect Valentine's day gift to my hubby. He loved that his car was in it! I answered a questionnaire about hair and eye color, nicknames, and even our favorite perfume/cologne. There was also a spot for a dedication. I love being able to personalize gifts, because they are made for a certain person, from the heart. I got an ebook version, printed it out and have it like a regular book. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
