Noun: a difficult, or otherwise unfortunate situation.
Verb: pledge or solemnly promise. Be engaged to be married.
I promised myself to a man. Well, technically, I promised myself to a boy. We were eight years old. Neighbours. He gave me a Cheezel, pushed it onto my finger, and asked me to marry him.
I ate the Cheezel.
I also said, “Yes” but that we’d have to wait until we were thirty.
It was my thirtieth birthday last week and now he’s calling in that promise.
Seriously, Elliot Parker is insane if he thinks that an out of the blue private Facebook message stipulating the binding law of an oral contractual agreement is going to seal our twenty-two-year bullshit engagement.
I wonder if he really does look like his profile picture, though.
Plight is the typical Golland affair that I have come to know and love from this author. Good dose of humour and loveable characters who have a heart stirring story to tell. Capturing the innocents of children, Golland weaves a story that you don’t want to put down as she makes her latest story so relatable and adoreable. As kids we all probably imagine a Cheezel or two to be a wedding ring as you do. As you have to have a ring when you marry your boyfriend of the week. Never to think about it the next week or month as you probably moved on. The poor boy in question was so last waeek
Oh to be a kid again
However for Elliot things are black and white for him. A simple Cheezel proposal to his childhood best friend Danielle was it for him. Never matter they were just eight years old and she ate the Cheezel before saying yes . Plus she only agreed to get married to him when they were both thirty. As in kids years that was forever and Danielle never really thought of the matter again . Until Elliot randomly reaches out to her and tells her that he is ready to say I do and expects her to be ready to do the same. Elliot has coming calling for his long lost fiancée
A bit of bombshell to Danielle who isn’t exactly keen on the whole idea of Cheezel being her plight . It might be to Eliott that the plight they made 22 years ago was a binding contract to him. Things have changed dramatically since they were kids. They aren’t the best friends they used to be and aren’t even in touch anymore. They grew apart and no matter what Elliot thinks. Danielle isn’t ready to roll over and play the dotting fiancée. She got her own life thank you very much and no this Cheezel plight is going to change things for her . She very much happy with her job and life . It doesn’t matter Elliot only matured and looks hot.
She happy as things are or is she ?
A adorable romantic comedy . Pledge is the typical Golland affair. The characters were both hoots in their own way. With the Elliot the cute geeky guy who believes in things just a little too black and white especially when it comes to love . Going head with the snarky sarcastic Danielle who holds love close to her chest and believes she just fine being things just as they were. She doesn’t need Elliot back thank you very much. But there something there . It’s sort of second chance yet it not. The burning love was obvious it just need a push . Elliot was the right person for that and whilst it was fun , it was also very sweet and heart warming. There was more to this story and nothing less then what I expected from this author.
