Abel spent a lot of time alone in her room writing or sketching in her journals and dreaming up stories. Growing up, she wrote poems, short stories and articles for her high school newspaper. She also fell in love with art and discovered her desire for self-expression.
Now, a Navy wife with two children of her own, she still loves being creative and most of all translating her stories into novels. E.M. Abel can often be found with her headphones on jamming out to music, practicing yoga and searching for her Zen or exploring the latest place she’s calling home. No matter what she’s doing in her life, she’s always sure to do it her way.

“Find a woman who’s too good for you and then become a better man for her.”
Musical notes floating throughout the story, and a ballad of love. That’s what sky and Dillon have between them, since childhood. She believes in him, encourages him and is his biggest cheerleader. He’s her “sound advice” , his quiet demeanor complimenting her effervescence.
They both go through a lot of struggles, troubles, choosing wrong people to love, get their hearts broken and share a drive to capture their dream in the concrete jungle of New York. Their eyes filled with stars and hopes in their hearts.
They’re so comfortable with each other, finishing each others sentences, gauging each others thoughts and joking about it
“Dude. Your dick is way bigger than I expected.”
And as long as they are together, helping and supporting , nothing can stop them , or come between them. But what happens when their own feelings pry apart their relationship and drive a wedge of awkwardness?
some very laugh out loud moments, some squeeze your eyes and tears rolling down moments, some emotions choking your throat moments.
It’s such an absorbing read !
I am not a fan of contemporary romance or NA, yet I couldn’t let go of the book. It’s so engrossing, I wanted to stay with Dillon and his mi cielo
Simple sentiments , simple love, written so beautifully. It was as a pleasure reading it.
I give 4.5 stars . Cheers EM !
