Feeling all warm and fuzzy inside, I couldn't adore Ana and Gavin any more right now, the lovey dovey-ness in this chapter was just the best.
Oh Ella, your chapters always make me happy, and this one was no different. I'm just in disbelief that after 47 chapters, Ana has finally in the most amazing way told Gavin she is in love with him, I'd love to see a bit next chapter with Gavin's feeling when she told him.

That was hot, sexy, sweet and romantic all in one. I love hand holding during sex, just gives that extra emotional connection. And an emotional connection is what shone through while Ana divulged her true emotions and feelings. What a nice chapter to have at Christmas. Thank you so much.

Ahh geez your endings kill me! Why is Amanda just doing as this man says, is he dangerous? Ana has said the three magic words, omg, it was amazing, i feel like doing backflips! Great chapter, Of course we understand you might not be able to post during the holidays but please do update again when you can because where you left us is just too much.

Ever so glad it wasn't long till the next chapter. Not sure what to make of Amanda, or what is going on in her head. Things are getting a bit complicated. But at least Gavin knows Ana loves him for whatever you are going to put them through. Enjoy Christmas and I will be excitedly looking forward to chapter 48 when you can. x

What a treat seeing you had posted! Thank you! Ana telling Gavin she is in love with him, and the emotion felt during that, was the best Christmas present. Completely adorable! Oh & very YUM...that is all ;) You are brilliant!

That ending was so unexpected, I get a feeling Gavin's going to have to have words with Momma bear and put her in her place if she continues her games. He is in love with Ana, and after this chapter he knows she loves him, Amanda shouldn't be doing anything to compromise her son's happiness no matter who is telling her to do it, so much looking forward to the next update.

Such a well written story, full of quality and so intriguing. I check all the time, the story line with Gavins mother and Chloe, leaves me with no words it's just excellent. Have a nice holiday season and I look forward to more when you get the chance.n

I love your story. It's different, a bit difficult to start but really good.

As always a great chapter, not boring lol. Every chapter puts some of the puzzles pieces into place but leaves new gaps needing to be filled. Always interesting and never ever boring!
I especially loved the first part and Ana nervous about how she looked, No one’s body’s the same after having a child. And normally you are with your child’s father so it’s not as big a deal to be the ideal perfect looking woman because he is your husband etc, but I suppose things change when it’s someone new and it’s only normal for Ana to be slightly nervous, especially as Ana said, Christian whipping another naked woman, that’s got to leave some insecurities, but Ana seen sense and realised she is who she is and she loves herself just the way she is.
Apart from the obvious line, my favourite has to be ‘I’m in this for the long haul’. I hate reading cheesy romance. Puke worthy love songs, over the top flowers, jewellery all the time, looking into each other’s eyes and climaxing together just from the love connection without even moving, it makes me cringe so badly. But your romantic chapter was perfect, and so sweet, it was my kind of romance, the bath and candles and just them, nothing else needed. That’s how it should be done. And very sweet to see Ana doing the taking care of, Nothing is better than a manly alpha-male who can show that sweet, soft and caring side to those he’s closest with. Horny bitch? Yes Ana, you are, but if those visual snippets and hottie corner were anything to go by then I think that’s perfectly acceptable. In fact I think after that lemon I had to go change, was damn hot, as usual with your lemons.
And one of the biggest things I loved, “he respects every decision I make“, lets face it that was one thing Christian never done, he would make the decisions for her, regarding most things and when she disobeyed well that’s when losing control and hiring subs comes back into play, so to have someone just stand by you and support your decisions, is exactly what Ana needs.
My reaction to Ana FINALLY pouring her heart out and telling Gavin she loves him, I think if I remember correctly I squealed like a pig, done a little dance and spent the rest of the day smiling like a loon, after reading numerous times. As a Gavin fan from day one, right back at the very start, chapter one, I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting for that moment, and it was the most perfect time and way you done it.
Then I read the end part, I was like “No f*cking way!“ I’m glad you cut me off and only gave me half! I didn’t see that coming at all, totally unexpected. Maybe I’m too soft but my hatred for Gavin’s mother has reduced dramatically. I don’t think she is really being this nasty, horrible, bitchy person but is doing what Anthony Richards is making her do, as she said. Her and James could lose ‘everything’. ’He get’s everything he wants’.
Chloe mentioned before that Amanda didn’t like the fact Ana had a child, but while Amanda was looking at those photos and Richards mentioned ‘the Grey boy’ or Gavin, Ana and Ted looking like a family there was no adverse reaction or negative thoughts, which if she hated the idea so much would have been there straight away.
So is Amanda only willing Chloe and Gavin back together because she doesn’t want to lose her business and needs to do as Richards says? As she said, “Going against him was ‘never’ an option. Still leaves me confused about Chloe and her intentions, does she know about this stuff with Richards’ and is in on this with Amanda? Does she just need Gavin’s help? Or really wants him back and can use Amanda’s need to her advantage.
Interesting that Amanda knows Christian Grey, or the name anyway, I wondered whether Gavin’s parents would know him from running a wealthy business. Makes such an interesting twist, how associated Gavin and Ana already were in a sense, Luke and Gavin going back many years and being best buds, Gavin’s parents’ trying to do business and having Christian steal it from under their noses. I love how everything connects so well.
This is normally longer, but my mind isn’t quite in the right place. Laters, Rock Girl xx

Oh i liked having a chapter away from drama. A great way to leave us for the holidays, a nice happy place for Gavin and Ana. My heart has completely melted with love and warmth. Thank you. MaciB x

I loved it. I think you're really good with conveying words and emotions. Ana should be proud of herself for being able to trust and love again, after being cheated on that is such a hard thing to do. Is Chloe part of Amanda's plan or does she really just want Gavin and Chloe back together? Hope you update soon!
| FSOG103 chapter 47 . 12/19/2013
I hope you have a nice holiday time. Great update. I am very happy that moving forward into the craziness they both have at least got each others love. The end leaves me thinking things are going to get worse before they get better
