"Maia?" Maurice Boscorelli walked into the apartment after his shift at work. Carrying a large brown paper bag with groceries, he removed the key from the door and closed it behind him. "Maia? Where are you?" Bosco looked around the apartment setting the groceries down on the kitchen table along with his keys. Looking around the corner he glanced into the bedroom where Maia is lying on the bed watching the television. "There you are, why didn't you answer me?"
"Hey," Maia Danforth lay comfortably tucked underneath the sheets not looking up at Maurice at the bedroom door. Taking off his jacket, he hung it up on the back of the door and sat on the bed beside her.
"Hey baby," kissing her cheek, she didn't respond. "And baby," removing the sheets he kissed her pregnant stomach. She brushed him off and covered her stomach back up.
"What's wrong?" taking off his shirt, Bosco threw it in the closet.
"You were supposed to be home two hours ago Mo." Maia fixed her hair and grabbed the remote shutting the television off.
"I had some things to do, you know, tie up some loose ends," trying to kiss her again she turned her head away. "What's the matter with you Maia, is it the baby?" Getting up he stripped down to his underwear and threw his belt and jeans into the closet. Closing the closet door, he sat back down in the bed, joining Maia under the covers.
"She was moving around a lot today, I could barely get any rest."
"Yeah?" Bosco smiled, "Damn, I missed it again."
"Yeah, you missed it again Mo," Maia turned back to face Bosco. "You know you're never here anymore, I hardly ever see you."
"Honey, I'm a police officer, I'm out in the field, my hours are not always set, you know that," Bosco stressed.
"I just feel like I'm going through this whole thing alone," tears began to well up in her eyes.
"Sweetheart, you're not alone," he kissed her forehead, "you'll never be alone, I'll be here for you." Maia burrowed her head into Bosco's chest and closes her eyes.
"I just miss you Maurice, we both do," Maia took a deep breath and closed her eyes as Bosco stroked her hair.
"I miss you too baby; I wish I could be here for you more," Bosco kissed the top of her head resting his chin on it. "I love you baby," Bosco kissed her head again, wrapping his arms around her. Bosco sat awake with Maia in his arms until she fell asleep. He watched her a bit longer before he allowed himself to fall asleep with her still in his arms.

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn.

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace.

The story also has some sick plot twists, which I never saw coming. I loved the fact that it is an adorable love story but has its mystery touc...
OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...
christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! I loved this book. The characters seemed so real. It was amazing how the author let Zak and Kaylees personalities slowly change. This story was very sad and eye opening. It could teach some people a very worthy lesson. It was a great combination of romance, mystery, and a...
263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...
