Dante Ramos will win at love if it's the last thing he does...

Since I retired from boxing, I’m fighting to keep my life off the damn ropes.

Lately, one thing after another’s falling apart. First there’s the road-trip on Valentine’s weekend that coulda gotten me and my girl both killed. Then came the unspoken secrets that keep putting so much distance between us.

My love for Michelle is everything that keeps me human. I can feel her slipping away. I’ve got one last shot. A desperate proposal.

And it’s all about to go wrong.

MARRY ME, BABY by Elisabeth Staab is the perfect (post) Valentine read. Dante and Michelle's love story told in Acts of Creation is possibly the most heart-wrenching one in the series. These two fought each other, fought for each other, went against expectations, and managed to remain together, stronger than ever. I'm not surprised that EStaab chose this couple to treat us fans with something special for Valentine's Day. 

From the title alone, you can tell what the novella is about. Dante and Michelle are still in the midst of tying up loose ends. I commend Michelle for staying strong because Dante needed someone to lean on and she proved to be one rock-solid wall for him. It's so sweet to read Dante's inner musings about how much he appreciates Michelle and all the ways he loves her which didn't go unnoticed. As for the proposal, I love how heartfelt it is. There are no grand gestures of any kind, it's so romantic in its unromantic way, if that makes sense. It's every bit, Dante and Michelle, in that it's all heart and the expected pizazz is unnecessary. MARRY ME, BABY gave me the warm fuzzies and totally made my Valentine's Day better. Of course, the candy helped too.

  11. I love unromantic romantic books like this one. Though the cover sucks.

  12. I'm pretty sure I read By the Rules but I'm not sure about the other one. Need to check because I love when a book has a follow up novella just to wrap things up completely and check back in.
