“I’ve always believed for every person there was only one love that would last a lifetime. I never understood quite what it meant until I met you though. You’re it for me, Lorrie. You are my love that lasts a lifetime.” ~Curtis Walker
A love story 50 years in the making…
CURTIS WALKER has lived his life to the fullest and he attributes that to the woman who has always been by his side. The one thing he knows with absolute certainty: he can’t live without her. Especially not now.
A love that has withstood the test of time…
It’s no secret that Curtis and Lorrie, the proud parents of the seven wild and rowdy Walker brothers, have found their happily ever after. Now, it’s time for the emotional journey of how they got there.
The love story we all dream for...This is where it all began
This is actually the first Nicole Edwards book I've read, but I am a fan as I have listened to the audio version of her "Club Destiny", and "Alluring Indulgence" series. Though not necessary to read either series beforehand, it's nice to have "Alluring Indulgence" under your belt as it is about the seven boys as adults that Lorrie and Curtis raised. Those boys are really a chip off the ol' block.
"Curtis" is where their love story begins. The book opens up, current day...and then moves into diary entries starting in 1962 when Curtis first meets Lorrie. Diary entries are scattered throughout the book and many chapters start out with an entry, where the rest of the chapter is the day's events that lead up to that entry.
This book had all emotions...I laughed, I cried, it was sentimental...well, at least it was for me because it reminded me of my own in-laws near 60 year marriage.
This is a story about the love of your life, a love you dream of....Curtis & Lorrie complete each other, they are not completely whole without the other. Curtis can be headstrong and stubborn, while Lorrie is strong in spirit, and feisty - they make a great combo, there isn't anything Curtis wouldn't do for Lorrie, and vice versa. Curtis is the kind of man that always puts Lorrie first, and as a couple - it's all about family.
If you've not read a Nicole Edwards book, don't be afraid to pick this up whether you've read "Alluring Indulgence" or not - but know that her books are descriptively steamy, hot, and sexy. I've enjoyed this book so much I may have to go back and start collecting the books I've listened to, as I've been known to read a book more than once. Also, because some characters get introduced in one series, and then become a bigger character in a different series - so, for me, I'd like to be able to go back and reference some of the origins of a character.
