Never fails

Kristen never disappoints. Every time I pick up one of her books I can't put it down. Her leading ladies are true steel magnolias and her hero's are yummy! I know corny but what can I say when all I want after I read them I dream of my own loving alpha. But I think for me... A woman who has become jaded about love and happy endings, Kristen makes me dream and believe again.
