"I had tears in my eyes at the end - totally loved it! Two big cuddly teddy bears and one extremely romantic getaway to celebrate an important milestone made for a fantastic story. I was completely wrapped up in everything Eddie was feeling - the descriptions were very vivid... Awesome and amazing."

"One of the sweetest, most romantic short stories I've had the pleasure to read. Sloan Parker's writing style is as great as ever, the characters well rounded, the locations and descriptions sucked me in, the feelings, emotions, the triumphs and troubles of a long-term relationship nicely and skillfully explored."
