    Summary

    When Clarke gets knocked up at 18 by her best friend's brother, her plans for the future go down the drain. She never would have guessed that seven years later, her and Bellamy would be successfully co-parenting their daughter as best friends. Best friends - nothing more, nothing less. Clarke has never let herself entertain the thought of anything more - she knows where Bellamy's stood since the beginning. It's time for her to move on, once and for all.

    When Bellamy gets Clarke pregnant, he feels like he's ruined her life. He makes a promise to himself that he'll make sure his daughter and Clarke have the lives they both deserve- and he's sure Clarke deserves a hell of a lot more than him. He thinks he's done a good job pushing away his feelings for her for the last seven years, but when Clarke gets engaged, he wonders if he's made a mistake. He wonders if it's too late.

    Summary

    Mr. Bellamy Blake had been the sole guardian of his younger sister Octavia for four years when his step-father’s old friend Mr. Kane unexpectedly offered to host the siblings in London for the season. Their journey had an inauspicious start when their carriage broke down and the Blakes were forced to seek shelter, causing their paths to cross with Miss Clarke Griffin.

    When he overhears her disparaging remarks about him and his sister, Bellamy impetuously decides to pretend that they are just as wealthy as Miss Griffin is—a pretence that unfortunately follows them all the way to London and not only sends fortune hunters in pursuit of the siblings, but also sets in motion a prank war between Mr. Blake and Miss Griffin.

    However, when one of Bellamy’s new friends begins courting Miss Griffin’s cousin, the two rivals are thrust into the roles of co-chaperones. Forced to spend time together, the two discover they have more in common than they had first supposed...

    Summary

    Melancholy has a distinct color.

    It’s blue, but not a rich blue of that of the deep sea. It’s the color of ice blowing off a glacier at dusk, pale and haunting. It morphs into deep blacks when it touches your fingertips and it swarms around a person like a thick fog, threatening to suffocate whomever its wrapped itself around.

    Clarke is familiar. She’s familiar because its become a part of her morning routine: take a shower, apply light mascara, get dressed, and watch as the color of melancholy snakes around her hair, tinting the sharp blonde.

    Melancholy has a distinct color, but even more so, it hugs you like a friend and betrays you like an enemy.

    ~~~

    After tragedy alters Clarke’s outlook on life, she turns her back on everything set out before her: medical school, a life of privilege, and most importantly, family. When she rents a room in The Ark – a brewery converted into living spaces – she’s forced out of her comfort zone when surrounded by the tenants who live there.

    Particularly a curly-haired brunette with a tendency to combine insults with historical references, intentionally keep her awake, and even most frustrating, make her not stop thinking about him.

    What a dick.

    Summary

    'Every lover is a soldier. Love is a warfare.'

    I've changed this description a thousand times. None of them felt honest. I just wanted to read a story of broken people finding each other and dancing to good music in the middle of nowhere. I also wanted to figure out how to write about consuming love. The beginning isn't great, it slowly gets better. It's dramatic, extreme, a very unrealistic love story. But it is a love story. And there are a few lines that make me smile.
