I'm writing this letter because it's highly doubtful I'll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.
So, here goes.
We're totally wrong for each other. You're the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I'm just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.
But here's the thing... for some bloody reason, I can't stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.
I want you.
The only reason I'm even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don't believe it's one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we're joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.
So, what's the purpose of this note? I guess it's a reminder that we're adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it's to let you know that I'm leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you'd like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.
No questions asked.
Think about it.
Whatever you choose.
It's doubtful I'll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.
Dear Bridget, I Want you is a fun and sexy read – and it was even more so because I buddy-read it with my blogger wife, Brandee @ Bookworm Brandee.
Lexxie: OMG! She had a fish-hook in her butt-cheek. You can’t even make that up, right? And how she asked Simon for a real doctor or a woman LOL. And the fact that it wasn’t all fun and games made it that much more realistic to me. Plus, as you said, their romance was very cute.
Brandee: I’ve had a fish-hook stuck in my finger…I can’t imagine it being stuck in my butt! And I would be mortified to have a hunky young doctor be the one to treat me! bwahahahaha
Lexxie: Yes. Writing things down can feel both intimate and give you more courage. Because you don’t have to watch the other person’s face while you’re writing a letter. And you might not even get any feedback at all. I think I loved Bridget’s first letter the most. Since she didn’t really plan on actually giving it to Simon. Ever. But I’m glad he got it. Because that’s just too cute.
Lexxie: Oh, the twists of their tragedies, and especially Bridget’s tragedy just cut my heart in two! I seriously felt like I had been stabbed at one point. Because *shakes head* that was just tough to read. And to see how they hadn’t really made peace with what they had been through, but finally found a way to do so was beautiful. I was totally smacked in the face with the curveball. Even if I expected *something* to be up with that – because that lawyer was just fishy. And I was SO angry at Bridget’s « friend « and « colleague ». Like, why would she interfere like that?
Lexxie: I thought Brendan was awesome. And he was present enough – especially thinking about how Bridget wanted to shield him. And seeing Simon actually stepping up and being great with Brendan was heartwarming.
Brandee: I didn’t think about it like that but you’re right…Bridget was very protective of him. That makes sense. So yeah, he was present enough. 🙂
Lexxie: I totally felt the same, wifey! It was a great story 😀
