Happy Valentine’s Day!

Monday, 14 February, 2011 / Published in Blog

A little something from my novel “Lucky” … I hope today finds you in love, or on your way!


Chapter 86

Falling in love is like getting hit by a large truck and yet not being mortally wounded.  Just sick to your stomach, high one minute, low the next.  Starving hungry but unable to eat.  Hot, cold, forever horny, full of hope and enthusiasm, with momentary depressions that wipe you out.

It is also not being able to remove the smile from your face, loving life with a mad passionate intensity, and feeling ten years younger.

Love does not appear with any warning signs.  You fall into it as if pushed from a high diving board.  No time to think about what’s happening.  It’s inevitable.  An event you can’t control.  A crazy, heart-stopping, roller-coaster ride that just has to take its course.

  1. love it…hey jackie!! when is your next book coming out ?? i still cant believe i got to meet you and that was 2 years 3 years ago lol

  2. I have often quoted that passage – I like it so much I wrote it out and framed it, and it hangs over my desk at home.

    Chances is by far the best book EVER written. Lucky was a great follow-up. Please don’t ever stop writing!
