Maria La Serra MORE THAN WORDS

The Proverbial Mr.Universe
Dear girl with the red scarf, Love was never meant to be conquered, you have to surrender to it. Trust me. After all, I am Mr. Universe.

When the universe conveys a message, you listen.

Olivia Montiano just caught her fiancé cheating. Now she is forced to question what she wants out of life and love. Striving to live up to her father’s unrealistic standards for the past twenty-three years, every decision she has ever made was with her father’s wishes in mind—until she finds mysterious, handwritten letters tucked away in places only meant for her. That’s when she realizes she’s been on the wrong path all along and gives her heart to a guy her father thinks is entirely wrong. Washed-up abstract artist Nick Montgomery has had quite a few setbacks in life. He’s become accustomed to never needing anyone, thinking he’s just fine—until he meets the girl with the red scarf. She’s not his type. But the universe has other ideas. Nick has a secret he’s keeping from her, afraid it will bring their new relationship to a sudden halt. Will they figure out what the universe holds for them?

"There is something to be said about the light, how it can seep through the smallest cracks. Even when you believe it’s not possible, the tiniest of light can brighten the sourest of souls."
"SHE WAS MAGIC, A DIRECT LIGHT—THE KIND THAT SEEPS THROUGH IN PLACES THAT DIDN’T EXIST INSIDE HIM ANYMORE. THE LIGHT HE THOUGHT HE LOST FOREVER, BUT NICK REALIZED WE DON’T LOSE THE LIGHT, WE ABSORB IT, AND WITH OLIVIA, HE WANTED TO ABSORB EVERY SPECK OF IT."
“I guess I will have to realize that you are worth the wait, and you will have to realize that I am worth jumping in with your eyes closed.Somewhere in between is where we’ll find ourselves.”
"PEOPLE WILL COME AND GO IN OUR LIVES. MOST OF THEM WE WON’T GIVE A SECOND THOUGHT TO AS SOON AS THE DOOR CLOSES BEHIND THEM. BUT I HAD ALWAYS IMAGINED THAT YOU WOULD LEAVE THE DEEPEST, EVERLASTING MARK."
