    So much angst! But so much research went into this story, and every bit of angst is realistic. Harry's character is beautiful and endearing. He brought me to tears so many times. Louis is complicated, tortured, and I love him so. All the characterization is pretty much spot on. It's a heart wrenching story, so we'll written. I've read it twice so far and will see read it many more times.

    Sweet story about fate. :) I loved the characterization and the fact that much of the story centers around a bookstore. It's not terribly sad (has a happy ending) but my eyes welled up with tears a few times because it was just so lovely...wonderfully written with a such a way of conveying emotions! I haven't bookmarked anything in a long time but this one is definitely worth it.

    Summary

    The door to Harry's left opened and in walked a man, slight frame but managing to fill the room with his presence. Harry stood up and turned towards him.

    “Boss.”
    The man nodded at Paul, his eyes whipping over to Harry. Harry’s lungs somehow lost every ounce of breath, like a suckerpunch to the gut, winded. The hairs on Harry's neck pricked with what he thought was fear.
    He held the back of the chair to steady himself, trying not to stagger, eventually remembering to breathe.
    Paul cleared his throat.
    “Tommo, this is Harry, the journo who is joining us. Harry, this is Louis Tomlinson.”

    Can Louis, an ex convict with secrets and lies, keep hold of them when he has to share three weeks with a journalist. And does he want to?

    Very sweet, interesting story! I loved the characterization...Louis and Harry were so endearing.
    Car crash, prison, redemption.

    Summary

    Nick leans over. "Oh," he says, his voice smug. "Who is that?"

    Harry just blinks at his phone. "Um," he manages to stammer out.

    "Who's that, Harry?" Nick asks again, but this time he raises his eyebrows and smirks. Harry knows Nick is just teasing, and that he's not really looking for new Harry Styles gossip, but, um. He might have found something. Accidentally.

    Harry opens his mouth to speak, but all that comes out is another 'um'. He really needs to work on translating his thoughts into words. But then it probably wouldn't be any helpful right now, would it? His mind is as blank as a newly erased etch-a-sketch.

    "Oh," Nick says again, this time gleefully, seemingly having picked up on Harry's distress. "Looks like we've got a story here! Are you going to call or delete her number?"

    Her number. So Nick thinks it's a girl. Well, Harry can't blame him: 'Lou' is kind of an androgynous nickname. His stylist's name is Lou.

    But this Lou, well, Louis, he's kind of, really, really not a girl. He's really pretty though, which, is something.

    (Or: AU where Harry's in One Direction, Louis isn't, and they reconnect over a game of 'Call or Delete'.)

    The dialogue in this story is so funny! I loved the witty Louis character and the very sweet, deep thinker Harry. All the characters were endearing in their own way. Except one of them, which I won't divulge. :)
    Summer writing camp, coffee shop. Loved this.
