Making It Last - Ruthie Knox I've always loved Ruthie Knox's writing, ever since I read About Last Night. She has that down to earth, this-people-exist-in-real-life, type of stories that just makes you ask for more. Making It Last is no exception. The story of Tony and Amber, a married couple, like any other married couple is struggling to raise a family together. Amber's feeling of discontent, the sense that she's losing herself in the midst of marriage is so familiar to many of us. While Tony's confusion as how to fix something unfixable but not wanting to lose what he values the most is probably what most married men feel prior to the marriage breaking up. So why do I love this book so much when it seems like when you first read it there was no way for a happy ever after to happen. That my HEA couple might end up hurting each other and *gasp* breaking up (of which I might have to boycott Ruthie Knox). I love it because its real. Ruthie Knox gave romance back to marriage by simply saying that the road to happily ever after in marriage isn't impossible, that nothing is perfect but it doesn't mean that you or marriage can't survive imperfection. It simply means that the romance is there if you see each other's truth, supporting each other, be honest and not to be afraid of showing your vulnerability to your partner and simply go forth from there. And I still love Ms. Ruthie Knox
