Aww, now this is just cute. I love the idea of being slapped in the face with something this huge and him still being able to move on from it, albeit a bit slowly. He is a dear. I thought he took it quite well.
I really like the dialogue. Just the overt Irish-ness of the way Liam spoke was lovely, not to mention lol-worthy. The way he said 'Jesus' had me cracking up. :D
Lovely story, dear. Until next time!
Author's Response: I really should get Emma to Irish-pick this for me at some stage, because all though I did quite a lot of research for it, it's probably still a bit ropey on that front to be honest. I really quite enjoyed these two, and I'm rather fond of Liam. Maybe I should find an excuse to write them again sometime. Thanks as ever, Jess.
This was wonderful. I loved the way you portrayed Niamh's newlywed bliss with her worry and fear. Your characterization of Liam was great, as well. I always wondered how that "nasty shock" worked out because not just any man would be willing to accept something as life changing as that. You made Liam likable, human, and simple without being stupid or one-sided. :] It seemed real.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for another lovely review. I'm glad you liked the characterisation, because I was really hoping people would find the characters sympathetic because I didn't want either to come over as 'the bad guy' or seem like they were out of order, and I struggled to get Liam to come out as I pictured him, but I like how he ended up. There was just something so tempting about exploring the whole world behind that one line.
I always like reading about minor characters and the stories between the lines and this one was really great! Poor Liam though... she really should have given him some warning hahaha.
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. I love minor characters because there's so much scope to go in so many directions. I'm not really sure there was any gentle way for Niamh to break it to him though, and his utter shock was more fun to write anyway!
