Just Give Me a Reason - Pink
Believers of fate, destiny, whatever, say that there are many paths to your one final
destination. No matter what choices you make you will always end up right where you
are supposed to be. Well I guess I took the road less traveled because God knows I’m
broken, bruised, and damaged.
This is my story. It’s about all the wrong turns that led to the right destination. We were
written in the stars from the very beginning and neither of us knew it. Love is something
you can’t fight and can’t hide from no matter how bad you want to. This is my cosmic
turn of love.
I moved my curly brown hair over my shoulder as he began slowly unzipping my dress,
savoring every inch of the skin he had never seen. As my dress fell to my feet I was
completely open for him to see. I turned back around and we began kissing again as I
fumbled with the buttons on his white dress shirt. Once I had the final button undone I
traced my fingers up his washboard abs over his chest and onto his shoulders where I
finally lifted the shirt of his solid frame. When his shirt finally shared a space next to my
dress, he lifted me up and onto the bed. With both of us now on the bed, things continued
to get hotter. His kisses no longer stopped at my collarbone and every time my breath
would catch he would wait a second then continue. I took the time he was leaning over
my exposed body to take him in in all his splendor. I traced every inch of his skin with
my fingertips making sure I memorized every muscle and every dip. I finally snuck my
finger inside the waistband of his jeans and we took the next step.
Now honestly I can't tell you exactly what happened. I know that once I undid the button
on his pants he stood up and let his jeans fall to the ground as he grabbed a condom from
his bedside table and put it on. I can also tell you that he looked absolutely perfect with
his red swollen lips, flushed face and perfect chest rising and falling with the excitement
that hung in the air like a fog. When he climbed back on the bed he slowly removed my
panties and then we were dancing. It was like the perfect waltz, slow and a little awkward
at first while I learned the moves but once I was confident in my dance we were like
Cinderella and Prince Charming at the ball. Dancing on clouds, perfectly content and
in love. I didn't say it that night and looking back, if I had things may have gone very
differently. Fate’s kind of a bitch like that.

A day in the life
How on earth do you do it? Well, I’m superwoman and I have a time turner… just kidding.. I’d give a kidney for a time turner. My days are all pretty much the same, and they have to be or I’d never accomplish anything. I wake up and the first thing I do is take out/ play with our fur babies. We have four constant companions and we occasionally foster puppies so right now I have six little monsters. After they are taken care of I make my coffee and head out into the garden. My hubs and I are into the whole you get in what you put out so we have a little organic veggie patch and a few plants because well… they are pretty . After that, its work time. I have an amazing blog called Books, Brownies and Barkers and run a tour company. So Part 1 of my day is that. Lunch is when I run my errands then the second half of the day is writing time. I try to write every day but sometimes they just don’t want to talk. The hubs comes home around six and that is play time. We go running, swimming, dancing (we love ballroom dance!) or just play with the pooches before dinner. Food time again then he is off to bed and I am back in front of my computer usually finishing what I started that day or getting lost on some tangent. Sleep wake up and repeat. The weekends are a different story though. We live in an amazing home with secrets all around us, so Saturday and Sunday are explore the yard days… So far this year we have found 2 banyon trees, a stone staircase and a secret garden. It’s really fun and keeps us active… So that’s it. That’s what I do. Now you know. What is your favorite thing to do?
One day while slaving away at her monotonous day job, Jennifer Martinez found her true
calling. Like a firefly in the night, the pages called to her. Once she caught the bug there
was no stopping it. Her fingers flew furiously across the keyboard winding tales of love,
mystery and anger. She snapped out of her reverie to find herself still behind the desk but
at least she knew who she was… Author Jennifer Martinez.
I like to think of myself as a beautiful conundrum. When I am not writing, I can be found
surrounded by my amazing family and 4 dogs or volunteering at a local animal rescue. I
love who I am and don’t mind at all when I get strange looks from people. I am a tattoo
covered, child and animal lover who looks forward to destroying peoples preconceived
notions of what “someone like me” would be interested in. You only live life once… you
may as well make it interesting.
I love to get lost in a good book and hope that everyone will get lost in mine.
