OKay, so apparently I have already reviewed chapter 21, so I'm going to stick my review to this chapter instead :)
'kay, bad stuff first:
I think you kinda forgot about the bartender - she was present at the end of last chapter, but doesn't get mentioned at all at the start of this one. I find it odd that, after saying how cute the sous chef was, she didn't make any comments about them already knowing each other, or even saying good bye as they left. I think it just needs a couple of sentences to clear that one up.
'When I got back, Dave (that's the owner) hooked me up with the line cook job at Mahogany, and I've never looked back'
One - dooooon't put brackets in speech! Use commas, or find another way to write it. Two - Chris had already mentioned that it was the owner who gave him the job, so mentioning it here is kind of redundant anyway.
[I'm not saying this to be rude or anything, I'm honestly trying to be constructive!]
Okay, negative shit aside - I was actually thinking about this story yesterday, no joke! I was having a private lament about how there's hardly any decent authors left on FP, and all the new stories seem to be about One Direction (VOMIT!), and I thought about how much I really ejoyed this story that you have here. Yes, it doesn't get updated as often as I would like, but hey - FP is free, so I don't think I (or anyone else for that matter) have the right to bitch about not getting something that is costing us nothing anyway :)
Looking forward to the next chappie!

lol, someone's happy. Meredith, I'm glad that you said yes to him :) Chris, how can you act so... calm? I mean, you broke her heart like 4, 5 years ago and then you act like nothing happened.

Woo! yay for updates :) Nice chapter and love the plot! I think you captured Meredith's reactions and such just fine. It all worked well and I think the tentativeness certainly fits her personality. Update soon!

love love love! Meredith's reaction was so fantastic, and I can totally relate with the emotions she is experiencing/feeling! Great job! You're a wonderful writer! Not to mention, I love the new Chris! Can't wait to read the next chapter! Review as soon as possible! :)

Oh my gosh. I was so excited when my cousin texted me to tell me you'd updated, you don't even know. I literally squealed out loud hahaha.
SO. Chris. Love him. to death. he's my favorite. I don't like Trent, even if he's faithful now. I'm glad that you said Chris would have to work for Meredith. Because I would've hated this story if you made it too easy. The way you've set everything up is perfect though(: I'm so pumped for the next chapter! And by the way, thank you SO MUCH for not making it a cliffhanger this time. Those kill me. I really hate waiting for chapters, but I think that I can deal with it knowing that you really will update. Just PLEASE try not to wait 4 months next time haha. it was good, because i wasn't so distracted from schoolwork and stuff but... ah. haha just please.
anyways(: i freaking love your story(: and Chris(: but not Trent. ew.
loves from Brittney

Thanks for updating, I loved this chapter! I think her reaction to seeing him was perfect. It's exactly as I imagine her character would be around him, good balance of emotion. I love the little bit of hope floating there between them, especially from Chris. You can see her inner struggles when it comes to him, and it really adds depth to her personality and feelings. Great job writing this, can't wait for more!

Okay, absolutely in addiction mode once again! Update soon!

You've brought out the conflict really well. In these situations, no matter how practical a person may be, sometimes one's emotions tend to cloud the rationality and logic. I sympathize with Trent to an extent regarding the work pressure but then will not let him off the hook so easily. He needs to save the relationship before it's too late. I genuinely want Meredith and Trent to not break up. The romantic in me silences the thought by hoping for Chris and Meredith. I'm ranting too much and need to stop now. I'll let you write away. Keep up the good work and updating! :)
P.S. I think I'm getting too involved in the story. It's crazy but really don't care. Your story does that to me.
