WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT!!! —-> Congratulations to Heidi! You were randomly selected for the $15 gift card giveaway!! You have been emailed.
It’s been just a little over a year now since we’ve met, and looking back, even then I KNEW one day you’d end up here. From the very beginning, when I couldn’t contain myself at work and announced a “pre-squee” post about what I was reading back in July 2011. I couldn’t believe my luck!!! How STUCK on you I already was (I mean… just look at the comments! Apparently I had already “claimed” you”. Tee hee!!).
And when I hit the end of the book, I let everyone officially know in my review that you were IT. The top of the top… and the frenzy just kept building from there. Day after day, month after month, I watched each new reader swoon over you. I gushed with them about you and I grinned (through gritted teeth ) because I knew… everything about you is just too colossal to keep all to myself. And now we’re all going to have to share BIG TIME, because that’s exactly where you are headed.
Nobody this big, that causes that much of a frenzy could be kept a “secret” for this long. And of course… it would appear you’ve never really been a secret considering just how many ”favorite heroes lists” you top. Considering just how many fellow readers have touted your awesomeness, and your kind, protective sweetness and vulnerability that we so love in our bad-boys. And I’ll come out and say it. You are pretty much the king of my book-bad-boy world.
In fact, I’ve even dedicated an entire list to finding more guys like you. Now hold on! Don’t huff! There can never be another perfect “Travis”… we’ve already found that out. But you know. We just can’t get enough of you, and sometimes finding someone similar… helps. And anyway, Jamie said it was okay… she gets us.
Just you wait! *beams*
Things are going to explode for you! Everybody wants Travis. They gave you a huge book deal, and now they’re going to make a movie about you. I. Am. Beaming. Like you, I don’t like to share, but I’m so glad I did, in this case. I had to acknowledge right off the bat, that I’d never be able to keep you to myself. But just know that I’m so proud of this moment.
Oh right! Remember last Christmas, when you sent me that awesome note? Wow! *sigh* You said something that absolutely stole my heart.
Merry Christmas. I just wanted you to know that I’ve read all the things you’ve written about me, and first of all – I’m flattered as f%ck. I mean, I’m in love with Abby, and you know that, but I wanted to thank you for everything you’ve done for us. I want you to have a great Christmas, and an even better 2012. If anyone f&cks with you, you let me know. I’ve got your back, babe.
But just know, Travis, that no matter what, I’ll always have your back too!
Oh and… you’ll always be my main *squee*.
P.S. –> hug to Abby!! I haven’t forgotten her. After all, there was a time, when I first got to know you… that I was her. You know. In my own way.
Congratulations Jamie McGuire for all that you’ve accomplished and for bringing us such an amazing story!!!
