PW -BHtTW Ch. 6-9

Where we left off - with the RHOK Reads:
The Pioneer Woman's -Black Heels to Tractor Wheels:

So, will she or won't she - Move to Chicago as planned? As she goes back and forth -she ultimately decides...


To take a chance on love with the Marlboro Man and doesn't move to Chicago! And yes, again more swooning -I love the part where she tells him of her decision -which leads to a good makeout session "Before I knew it we were back where we'd been before, rolling around and kissing manically in the bed of his diesel pickup. Occasionally my arm would hit a crowbar and my head would slam against a spare tire or a cattle prod or a jack ; I didn't care, I'd said what I wanted to say that night. Everything else -even minor head injuries -was a piece of cake."


I love how no matter how cool she may seem there are things like bumping her head on a spare tire, or almost falling/ spilling her purse, and all the inner dialogue that goes on -that makes us less than cool - clumsy girls relate ;)


I also like that she mentions - that feeling of it's just them -in love -but, oh yeah -there are other people to consider here -gotta meet the family and all ! And what an impression she must've made not quite making a turn and her car getting stuck in a ditch -with Marlboro's mom in the car! And after all this meeting his family and being in love -she comes home - to be shaken to the core -finding out her parents are having marital problems -If her parents who had been together for thirty years were having problems -what does that make of love ? Even though Marlboro Man does make her feel less disheartened - What will happen next? -To be continued...
