I was so happy to check my email and see that you'd updated! I have been waiting so long after the last chapter to see what had occurred between Violet and Andrew. I'm a little shocked that Chris is interfering so much, but I suppose that shows just how "moody" Andrew is about being ignored by Violet. I was a little shocked too by the ending. Andrew is really so determined to get her to give him the time of day, and I kinda want to laugh as I think about what Violet's reaction will be once she confronts Andrew about the forced partnership between them. Hopefully we won't have to wait another two and a half months for an update, I love this story so much!

Yay! I'm sooooo happy you updated! My day has officially been made :)
Just one request: Can you please write more about Chris Williams? Because he's AMAZING. I mean, I love Andrew (like, a TON) but really, Chris has made me grin from ear to ear every time he's shown up in the story (storIES actually).
His part in this chapter was phenomenal as well. I figured that if anyone can get Violet and Andrew together through sheer force of will, it's Chris. I also found it hilarious that he gets all his info about Andrew's life through Kayla. And it's so sweet that he wants both Vi and Andrew to be happy with each other, and the fact that he's the mysterious other sibling who only makes "guest appearances" makes him that much cooler...in other words, CHRIS NEEDS A GIRL BECAUSE HE'S PERFECT.
Anyway, I guess Andrew isn't taking it lying down either if the ending of this chapter is anything to go by. I have a feeling that we're going to see a confrontation between Violet and her parents in the coming chapters. I really hope that Andrew is able to win Vi over when they're in Tennessee.
Are we ever going to see Abigail again? (I can't decide if I want her to come again or not)

I checked your story last night before I went to sleep past midnight, and I couldn't believe you updated. I stalked your story every single day waiting for an update, and woot, woot, another chapter. I have been rereading the previous chapters before then. Thanks for another great chapter. Applauds Viv for standing up for herself, to both Josephine and her parents. Although, part of me wants her to get along with her parents, now is not the time yet, perhaps in the future. Also. love how she stays firm with Andrew, no contact initiated on her part, and how she realizes that it's really up to Andrew to make the move. Andrew does not have to chase women, they all come to him, but Viv is different. Andrew considers calling and texting twice is all it takes to get Viv back, but Viv will not be a second choice, she wants a man who will convince her without a doubt that he likes and prefer her and only her, and she's not playing second fiddle to someone else. Come on, Andrew just left her back at this office without even a word to Viv to go to lunch with Abigail, and he expects that Viv will just runs to him just like that. I love this aspect with Viv. She may not have all this guys after her, but she remains true to what she wants, and is willing to walk away, even though the pain is unbearable. Viv is tough, heart toughened due to her family's constant rejection, and I can understand why she does not want to settle for anything, for any man. Plus it helps that she's at the stage where she's building her career, so that occupies and helps diverts her mind from heart struggles. Andrew has it coming though if he thinks that he can woo her back just like that. I remember in your previous chapter where you mentioned something about Andrew's father wearing down his mother that she eventually gave in. Andrew has to wear Viv's wall down, and it will not take just a measly two or several calls and emails. It's time for Andrew to work hard, very hard to get Viv back. Love, love how you threw in Chris into the picture. Makes me wonder, did Chris really have to get involve in Andrew's life? The romantic in me wants to think that maybe, he likes Viv too, not only because he's been in competition with his younger brother just because they are siblings, but starting to realize that he likes Viv. Maybe, Chris admires how Viv resolve with Andrew, and that she does not cave in easily. I know Viv for sure knows that Chris mentioning a possible date with her is not because of attraction, but do we really know what Chris thinks? I mean, maybe he's intrigue with Viv, the one who is able to resist Andrew, but to actually go to talk to Viv in person even though it's about his brother. Something is brewing, can Chris actually wants someone like Viv? After all, just like his brother Andrew, he guards his emotions carefully. Anyway, that's good for Andrew, since I want him to realize that not everything gets handed down to him in a golden plate. Finally, I'm glad that Andrew found a way to reach out to Viv through this assignment even though he has to pull in that prank, which he knows will upset Viv. Maybe, he meant to upset Viv, to get her to talk to him again, and with Viv being serious about her work, he knows that she will not pass this chance no matter how angry she will be when she confronts him. Thank you so much for this update.

Oh Gosh - I can't believe Andrew pulled that stunt! I'd be angry too - Violet wants to earn assignments on her OWN merit - not because of Andrew! When is sweet Andrew coming back?!

I'm not sure if I was reading fast or something, but the chapter ended too quickly! HUHUHU However, I do like that Chris and Violet interaction. I wish Abigail would just dissappear hahaha, that's mean of me to say. Update when you can!

OH MY GOD! *squeals in excitement* Amazing chapter here! Loved it. I'm so excited to read next. I hope you update sooner this time. Can't wait long to read this amazing piece.

Thank you thank you thank you ever so much for updating. My heart literally skipped a beat when I saw an incoming email on the update.
The meeting with Chris was definitely unexpected.
The project with the "photographer" too I might add. Honestly I thought they'd meet accidentally or something. Not like this. But this is so good. You keep me on my toes. I am so in love with your work.
I will patiently wait for your next update.
Again, thank you. You made my (crappy) day.

Andrew, you sneaky little bastard! You just HAD to do that, hadn't you?
| skye real chapter 23 . 4/20/2015
And here they go again... well at least Andrew is taking the initiative to get in contact with her. But i think he needs to man up more and get more aggressive in pursuing her if he's really interested in Violet. I still like Vi snd Chris' scenes together. They should go on a date just to provoke Andrew to act up on his feeling. I mean, 2 phone calls and 2 voicemails is not enough in my book. Looking forward to the next update :)
| hunter005 chapter 23 . 4/20/2015
Ahh another chapter! Thanks! I really relate to Vi especially in chapter 22 and now. Crazily enough I've been dealin with my own "Josephine" and my own "Andrew". So it's pretty cool to read and really connect with Violets character. Can't wait for the next chapter!
| AlwaysBeAUnicorn chapter 23 . 4/20/2015
I am so happy you updated, i really love this story. I can't believe he would interfere with her work like that, I mean I can but still. I love reading your work and I really like your writing style. Can't wait for the next chapter.

welcome back! the last two sentences made my day, can't wait for her to rip into him, pls pls make her keep her wits and courage with her at the sound of his voice
| incognitus chapter 23 . 4/20/2015
Woohoo you updated! I was so glad to receive the new chapter notification that I just did a little jig in the office, haha!
Anyway, I'm so glad to see more plot development between Violet and Andrew. I would have thought Andrew would continue to "sulk" after Violet ignored his texts and voicemails, but it seems like he's spurred into action by rejection and ever-so-sneakily plotting to see Violet again (while giving her a chance to show off her writing chops). Guys, seriously - just tell us how you're feeling! *shakes head in mock dismay*
Andrew was super frustrating in the last chapter though, leaving Violet dangling, so it's nice to see him kind of redeeming himself in this one. Not that Violet would see it that way, I'm sure...
Just one minor typo to point out: during Violet's conversation with Chris, I think you meant to say, "Look, Violet, I normally wouldn't get involved..." instead of Kayla?
Can't wait for you to update soon!
P.S. If you ever need a beta reader, I'll be more than happy to offer my services. :)

Finally! You updated. I almost thought you were dead...or at least abandoned the story. When's the next update? Next year? .
