| NElaineR chapter 41 . 3/3
Combination of sweet and anxious - emphasis on the anxious (but that's how you roll, lol). Feel bad for everyone - it's going to be a long road for healing. The pregnancy was a surprise - good ol' Eli - always sticking his foot in his mouth. He's lucky Ria didn't punch him (I might have). As always, looking forward to your next update.

Great chapter - I enjoyed a lot. Emily with smartphone was so cute and funny :) And I guess she'd manage a lot really a lot of likes :) So, I'm waiting for another chapter, take care :)

So TLG is still in trouble, but I like it because things don't change in the blink of an eye for a company in the red. Thanks for keeping it realistic. But you really want everybody to be happy, don't you? ;) I mean, Ria and Eli expecting a baby and Sharon worrying about Gillian... I didn't even know at first who that Sharon was Gillian was talking to on the phone until I remembered that *Shazza* is Gill's best friend now. ;)) Sorry & please don't get me wrong, I love the chapter. It's just that I'm always surprised anew how you create this lovely universe for all of the characters with so much love for detail.
Of course, I love the parts about Cal and Gillian the most. No surprise here. I held my breath when Gillian walked into her house and had the panic attack. And I really hope she will Cal tell about it. I get it that she wants to be strong for him because his injuries are severe, but she can't handle it all by herself. It broke my heart when she went to sleep in her bed after she had the nightmare and hurt Cal accidentally. And Moritz went, too, so that Cal was all alone. *sniffs* The upside is that there could be some hot *Cal feels better now* stuff waiting somewhere in the yet unwritten chapters of your story. ;)

That was a great chapter. I loved that Gillian couldn't face being at her place and that she panicked. I also loved that Emily came in to find them sleeping in the same bed. It was cute!

Oh, how I loved this chapter! Granted, no Cal and Gill together at Xmas was sad, but everything still "worked," you know? They can be "them" even when they aren't in the same room. Moritz makes me want a Moritz of my own every time you write about him, and Cal's dialogue in the hospital made me giggle. "Wretched. Like I got shot three times least week." Such a perfectly "Cal" thing to say!
Loved this part too:
"Lightman needed Foster around to help soothe their clients' ruffled feathers and Foster needed Lightman around when a situation required some serious pushing back. Neither of them were terribly good at doing the things the other excelled at."
Very well said!

Awww...so sweet, with the exception of provoking the urge to want to punch Leslie Rotblatt in the face.
Now I need to look up a recipe for chocolate-caramel chip Graham cookies now. I hope you're happy.

Such a long and wonderful chapter. I was very surprised that Gillian didn't (couldn't) spend Christmas with Cal and Emily. Then again, she had no choice because she had to save TLG another time. I really liked her professional attitude here and how Ria underestimated her. At least you let them be a little happy with a real Christmas dinner and Ava coming over. Actually, a Christmas like that doesn't necessarily have to be worse than a traditional Christmas.
Then the ending. You really tricked me here, you know. I didn't expect such sentimentality. Cal and Emily are her *family*. I mean, they are, obviously, but in this world, having their names and numbers stored in her smartphone only makes it official, lol. No, seriously, that was very sweet and moved me.
I'm curious whether Emily will tell Cal about how badly she treated Gillian after the attack. Kind of almost forgot about it, but since he noticed something here, maybe something will come up in the next chapter(s). Thank you for this long & great update. Quality and quantity - what more could one want?

That was a really good chapter. I'm sad that Gillian wasn't at the hospital with them because she had to deal with a client. She deserved to be there for their first Christmas as a couple. But hey, it was great too to have Emily and Cal talking. And that last scene with Gillian and Emily was really great.

And that's a story I wanted to read - Emily and Gillian, mmm... Thanks for that - love that chapter :*

I *knew* I was right to ask for chapter 40.
*smugs it up a bit, before things go pear-shaped again*
But, oh my goodness, woman! Are you trying to kill me? Family?! That was so sweet I almost drop directly into a diabetic coma on the spot. (I mean that in the nicest possible way)
I hate Leslie, by the way. It would be a shame if she stumbled out in front of a moving car or something. Or not.
Good thing you balanced out the Prune Queen with lovely things like Gillian ordering in a proper Christmas dinner and making sure to include Ava, the bracelet she gave Emily, Cal-Quips (and tasty descriptions of his stubble, thankyouverymuch!) and some cute father-daughter moments.
Well done, once more.

Awwww such a lovely Gilimy moment. I don't like Roblatt

I'm really enjoying the way Alex's character is developing. The interplay with Gillian and the staff is absolutely spot-on, and I love that she threw the dating question back in Ria's face - that was brilliant! Looking forward to reading scenes with Gillian steering the ship. :)

I've been following this story the whole time. I'm really sorry for my lack of reviews. I really enjoyed this chapter. The interaction with Ria and Eli was nice. I don't usually like their dynamic, but this was good. I like Alex too. He seems to be a good friend for Gillian. I'm looking forward to the next chapter! I'm kind of hoping they can steal some of their old contracts from Rader. A nice confrontation between Gillian and Jack Rader would be awesome. I'd love to see her 'one-up' him...
