If you recall a while back I met Sean Lowe for a book signing too. Well I was a complete idiot in front of him and not wanting to repeat that with Chris I had no idea what to say so then of course I say nothing and instead just stood there awkwardly while he signed my book. I've always considered myself to be a bit of an awkward person but never thought I would be starstruck by two of the most handsome guys from reality TV and turn into a mumbling, fumbling idiot. So that's cool. It was so fun to meet him though.
This past weekend while I was hanging out at one of the luxury homes I got a chance to read almost the entire book (I finished as soon as I got home) and it was amazing. He is really a great writer. There were some parts that I just paused at and was like "woah! Chris Harrison wrote this? It's excellent writing." Here's one of my favorite paragraphs:
"She was starting to realize that places, like people, get under your skin and become a part of you. That you could leave them, but they changed you somehow, and you could never quite go back to being who you were before. That the dirt of a place under your fingernails was as powerful, as transformative, as any kiss."
The book had a great story line that I wasn't expecting when I opened it. Sidenote: I didn't read the synopsis or anything so I really had no idea what it was about in general other than she found some old letters she wrote. It was a really good read and now thanks to him and Nicholas Sparks with The Longest Ride I want to date a cowboy. I'm smitten. Take me to Texas please.
