screw Edward" part of my title. In all seriousness, I have to admit that the quotes from the book are so gosh darn lovey dovey that it can't possibly be relatable at all. For example, "Before you, Bella my life was like a moonless night." I'm sorry, what kind of guy would really say that to a girl & be taken seriously? That's a no no.
On the other hand, I wish that Nick Needham is real, haha! He's from "A Hopeless Romantic" by Harriet Evans [my review here]. It was my first romance novel that I've ever read & I seriously fell in love with Nick & his relationship with Laura. They would talk about everyday things instead of the "I can't live without you" stuff that I find other romance novels to be doing. "Never trust someone who says they prefer fat chips to thin chips." A quote where they converse about chips [as in fish & chips] & other random things that you can relate to because it's not so high above you. As you keep reading, you totally fall in love with the guy! He is relatable like someone you can actually meet, not like Edward who can spew out a love quote for you. Nick has flaws as well, which makes him human and not some super boyfriend.
All I'm saying is that all those twihards [aka Twilight fans] can keep their stupid Edward Cullen, just stay away from my Nick Needham! He belongs to me, Paula, & Louise ;)
