Now, now, what is Wesley up to?
| reindrops chapter 18 . 6/6/2011
And I am hoping that Wesley's not gonna fuck up this time.
| reindrops chapter 17 . 6/6/2011
Ugh. Men are such pigs. Why can't they commit themselves to just one woman? You have no idea how much I love Jenna in this chapter. Gaaah. I want to cry.
| reindrops chapter 15 . 6/6/2011
Ouch. What the hell. I feel bad for Jenna.
| reindrops chapter 14 . 6/6/2011
Oh my God. Why is Kim still calling him? And Wesley even bothers to answer.
| reindrops chapter 13 . 6/6/2011
One thing is certain: I love this chapter. Jenna is really a great girl.
| reindrops chapter 11 . 6/6/2011
*squeals* I hope that means Wesley is really in love with her. I mean, Jenna seems lovely and she definitely has a good heart.
| reindrops chapter 10 . 6/6/2011
Oh, gosh. I really don't like Kim.
| reindrops chapter 5 . 6/5/2011
I loved it. Wow. I hope they would fall in love with each other already.

Jon is the most confusing character ever! and i knew he was lying! He was like the little devil on her shoulder but i also think he was good for her! he was attentive in a way that Wesley definetly is not but could learn from, can Wesley say he genuinely knows her? i mean jenna and wesley can joke around and talk about the serious stuff but are they capable of just talking? you know exploring each other's personalities? In an afternoon, Jon was attentive enough to figure out which coat she liked, which Wesley never managed to do even after buying her how many? Someone (Jenna)should tell Wesley that it's not the quantity of gifts but the meaning behind them. frankly i've found his gifts cheap because the meaning behind them was to cover up his misdemeanours, to distract her with pretty trinkets...they may have cost thousands but in my eye they don't mean much.
Wesley is a jackass, this is so not your typical office typen romance, he better not go bck to Kim cause i think that would be too much for his character...i don't know if i like him...he's definetly alph male which i don't think i like but...this situation is sooo confusing and it isn't even the usual type of romance i read - sigh- but i'm hooked. At this point i don't think i like Wesley anymore even though she's made her choice but to be honest i hate games like this where eventually all the players are hurt in some shape or form, whether that hurt lasts or not they still get hurt.
Jenna should make a greater stand, especiall if they are going to be parenting together, as at times i thought she was abit weak willed and not assertive enough, she's just so lost and i don't know if i respect her...i know i know people are more judgemental about female leads but just the way she handled everything i can't respect her too much. you said she has a job but we haven't reallt seen her do it in a formal capacity apart from getting the kids their presents and wrapping them up with Robin, i don't know but she doesn't seem to do much, i admit i'm probably beeing harsh as i'm frustrated with her...i mean really to be a broodmare? - so the feminist says - Is that all, so she's reconciling herself to the idea but! And Wesley, does he want kids just for the sake of having a big family? what is up with that...i mean does he not think that it means something pretty special to have children with someone? does he even care if he doesn't love that woman?
What was confusing was the evolution of their relationship...they were in a hotel somewhere in the earlier chapters and they were joking about falling in love and he said in french, i thought quite seriously that, he was and jenna brushed it off as a mis-translation? but i guess Kim was the proverbial spanner in the works...
i don't think a story has ever made me write this much!
Looking roward to the next chapter...have you still got alot to write or not that their little self-made triangle has been kond of resolved are we nearing the end?
All the best,

As always, I love reading your stories! Personally, and as far as I have been lurking on fictionpress for 3 years reading a lot of stories in here, you are the best writer who can impeccably create the most realistic characters and plots. Seriously. Never once you had failed me after I read Because of You, and then Beautiful Mistakes, and Unwanted..and now this. I love you for that you know. You are seriously a brilliant writer whose stories, if compared to other contemporary stories, theirs would look like cheap sheer dramas. Yours are...so good and I all love your stories and please..please...continue to write more stories and continue to inspire us more.
Anyway, regarding this story, I admit, from time to time, I have to take a break and pause because you are such an evil(I mean that positively) writer who makes me so frustrated but love the characters at the same time. To be honest, I like Jenna. Seriously. She may have chosen some dumb irrational decisions, but I can feel her realness, weakness and yeah. She's no perfect angel. I like the way you let her portray. And my gosh! Even now, I'm still torn between Wesley and Jon. Don't get me wrong, I am a Wesley-shipper when it comes to who Jenna should end up with, but Jon, well, he kind of just grows on me on the later chapters. I feel bad for him. Part of me feels that he already kind of fell for Jenna and that he's hurt about Jenna's decision and yeah... I feel bad for him. But that's just the way things go, you know. Even when Jon started to star in the middle chapters, I know from my gut instinct, no matter how I enjoyed seeing him and Jenna together, Wesley is still for the win for Jenna. I mean, hello? Wesley's and Jenna's togetherness almost occupied the 60% or more of the overall chapters and it would just be kind of wasted if they wouldn't end up together. Not to mention, there's still the adoption going on which, I'm certain is a kind of string that would pull them closer back together.
I sincerely hope you would update before June comes. ) Not to pressure you though. It's just coz, college would start again on the second week of June and yeah. I assume the next chapter would be the last chapter so it would be appropriate if I can be able to read it before damn class starts, eh? hehe.
I love you Sam! Please continue to write more stories. I beg you! It's like you put something in your stories that makes me so addicted. But my addictive-ness aside, your stories are somewhat my escapes. They are like my reminders of dramas that actually and probably happen in reality. And no kidding, by reading your stories, I kind of wish to have a life of one of your heroines. And you always make the hottest guys who are believable! Haha! Most of the hot guys I came across on other stories and novels are just not that believable, almost perfect despite the flaws that had attached upon them, but yours are just...hot..believably hot, realistically hot. That's how brilliant you are! And I like it that your stories are being 'controversial' because let's face it, they are really controversial. In a way that is a thumbs up because that's just how your stories evoke your (most) readers' emotions, like a punch in our guts! Haha! YOU ARE AWESOME. AND AGAIN, PLEASE WRITE MORE! PLEASE! Hope to read Brothers and Bestfriends soon though! D

I sincerely hope that this is not the last chapter. I am irreversibly, and irrevocably in love with this story. I love your writing style and I love your characters. I love that they have a mind of their own. This story is a very refreshing non-cliched twist on a love story. I've seen love triangles before but nothing like this. I appreciate that you take the time to note and explain to us that even though Wesley's prince charming he's not perfect and that Jenna is far from it also. I know a lot of authors don't get told very often but I appreciate you spending your time and creativity to share this story with us and update. I really do. Your story made my day, so thank you for that.

There's something fishy going on, and it IS about what Jenna mentioned (Jon not telling her his room number and stuff), and that parting line (when she said that she didn't keep any secrets and Jon told her that made one of them). In any case, I just wish that Jenna would choose to be single and ditch both Wesley AND Jon, and just take advantage of Wesley to adopt Anya :)

This story is definitely a lot different than I expected it to be. I have to say that I find that your story irritates me a lot but I think that is why I can't stop reading it. The decisions that your characters make are so aggravating and I just want to scream at them and tell them how stupid they are..haha. I think you should definitely write for tv or for a soap opera. The twists and turns that you create in your story just seem to come of out of now where but it adds a lot to your story!
I have to say that I really don't like Jenna. I quite frankly don't care who she ends up with. In all honesty, I think Wesley deserves someone better. Don't get me wrong, he has his flaws but he needs to be with someone that he can't live without and that really wants to have a family with him. Jenna is not that girl...at least not yet. What is she like 23? And she already wants to have kids with someone she isn't even sure she wants to be with? Please! What is wrong with her? I seriously want to shake her and say no more boys. She needs to get a damn education and a job. Then she can use her own money and buy an orphanage or adopt 80 kids or whatever. I'm tired of her saying how she is a feminist and doesn't need a man to buy things but she is using Wesley to give her an instant family. Ah! I'm sick of her...lol. I guess you are an excellent writer to produce these kinds of feelings from me!
Although I am quite annoyed by your story..probably mostly because your characters are incredibly flawed...I can't wait to see what happens. I could care less whether Jenna ends up with Wesley or Jon but I want some kind of closure to all of this craziness!
Great job though. Your story has definitely annoyed me but it is one that I won't forget. I love all of the stories that you have written. I get sucked in and adore the characters that you create. You have a gift...jealous :)

I have to admit, the last few chapters really annoyed me, I thought they were a bit of a drag. I really wanted her to get with Jon though, he was so nice and good to her, he treated her so well. Wesley was a dip shit and too unreliable for a life partner. All up though you have an incredible gift for story telling, I was spellbound. Great job
