Theres a difference between sexuality and sex...Sex is just an act. Sexuality is a sincere expression of desire and pleasure.

Guilt is a feeling Ive never made much peace with. I find that when it rears its head, it brings an army.

Relationships are complex...People are messy, and love can be ugly.

It was a problem. But it was a solvable problem, and solvable problems arent really problems, are they?

You should know this about the rich: they always want to get richer. It is never boring, getting hands on more money.

quote
rather_be_reading

You can do that when you're rich and famous. You can decide that wealth and renown are worthless when you have them.

quote
rather_be_reading

What's that saying? Behind every gorgeous woman, there's a man sick of screwing her? Well, it works both ways. No one mentions that part.

(So powerful!!)

quote
rather_be_reading

When you realize you can tell someone your truth when you can show yourself to them, when you stand in front of them bare and their response is "you're safe with me" -- thats intimacy.

Curly_Caffeinated_Reader One of my favorites ❤️ 1d

I enjoyed this alot more than I anticipated! The hype was real on this one. Monique is hired to write Evelyn Hugo's, one of the most successful actresses, bio. I love the perspective this was written in as EH is telling it to Monique. The whole premise of the book is really getting to know EH "behind the scenes". And the twist almost at the end ?? I think this will be added to my list of books to always recommend.

Djspens I enjoyed this one more than I thought I would, too! 1d
Crazeedi Great book 1d
rather_be_reading @Djspens omg so good! 13h

Ive never seen so many books in an airport store!!

HerDarkHuntress1 What airport? 4d
rather_be_reading @HerDarkHuntress1 ontario, california 4d
HerDarkHuntress1 @rather_be_reading awe then I‘m never going to see it! 😫 4d
HerDarkHuntress1 @rather_be_reading because if im going to Cali for any reason im going to be taking my home with me which means i drive. I dont fly very often because its smarter to travel with your home when your going to be gone to long and you have a mass of dogs that would miss you should you not take them with you! So no flying! 21h
