“She was wearing a pair of my pajamas with the sleeves rolled up. When she laughed I wanted her again. A minute later she asked me if I loved her. I told her it didn't mean anything but that I didn't think so. She looked sad. But as we were fixing lunch, and for no apparent reason, she laughed in such a way that I kissed her.”

There‘s a lot packed into this short book, but the main thread is an older gentleman, Vinny, who notices a quiet, tormented woman. He instantly sets out to woo her. Throw in a quiet English sea town and some great supporting characters and you have a fun ride. #letyouloveme #anglophileapril
Up front: I have not seen this film, but I read the books. Had to know what the fuss was about.
I would caption this seen as follows.

When Sarah meets Matthew she is instantly attracted to him. But as time and their relationship move along, Matthew starts to pull back saying “I can‘t #letyouloveme”. However, Matthew still wants the convenience of having Sarah around. What follows is an exploration of the dynamics of an abusive relationship, which moved me and had me gripped all the way through.
It‘s been a looong day for what was supposed to be a ‘holy‘ Thursday (jk, nothing is sacred in sales 🙄). So it‘s currently 3am and I‘m cheating and killing 2 prompts with 1 post! 😜
#LetYouLoveMe reminds me of this book as Julie lets R try to love her despite the unfortunate circumstances they both face. By the end of the novel they also #fall in love with each other as fate (or Marion) would have it. 🧟♂️
"You didn't get sober to be stupid, Danny. Keep it in mind the next time you start listening to that itty-bitty shitty committee inside your head."
"Huw was shaking. Holy fucking shit, she barely whispered and that thing heard!"
"Do something for me. Worship me. Stay here with your words, with your body. Worship me. Pray to me like I'm your god. Your goddess."
