The Story Guy by Mary Ann Rivers

Every once in a while we read a book that we love so much that we decide we need to put up a review of it immediately, even though the review calendar is full.  This is one of those books.  Kay and Anne highly recommend you read The Story Guy.

This is the most beautiful book I’ve ever read. So much more than a romance. Powerful, moving, sweet, loving and sometimes even funny. It starts with the placement of personal ad and takes you on the journey of two people that so desperately needed each other. The desire to love and be loved is never more profound.

Brian places an ad for one day a week, to meet with someone for nothing more than kissing. No relationship, no extensive touching and no sex. Just kissing. He doesn’t have the time for anything more. He lives with his sister and works as an attorney.

Carrie is a librarian who answers his ad because of how it’s worded. She had no idea what she would be getting. Her confusion over the situation is understandable and frustrating. But growing to love someone is never easy. I really can’t tell you much more because I don’t want to give anything away.

I ended up open mouthed sobbing because the emotional pull of this story is huge.

  1. I just wanted to chime in and say I really loved this book. There's a lot packed in to just over 100 pages, and it's all good!

    The characters might have been just a little perfect, but I was really ok with it. It's not just how they fall in love, but how they work life to make it possible for them to be together.

    I tweeted about it right after I finished it. It broke my heart and healed it in the very best way! ~Anne

  2. I'll have to read it when I'm in a really good place emotionally. I love a good emotional read, but the timing has to be right.
