"Anything" by Michael Baron

This book was FABULOUS!  Michael Baron grabbed me from the start of this book and has never let me go, still!  I keep thinking about this story.  Michael Baron’s writing is most ecsquisite!  The Publisher compared him to that of Nicholas Sparks.  I highly agree!  The emotion portrayed in the characters was real.  You could feel it.  The characters came to life jumping off the pages as they devoured my heart.  It is as if you are a part of them, or vice-versa.  He has something special in his writing and it is undeniable.  I truly enjoyed this story.  This story was a little on the Paranormal side, too, which I usually tend to stay away from, but there was something that pulled me right into it in this book.  Something must have happened to this author because in the Prologue of this book he writes a special note to the Reader explaining in love, anything can happen, even things one cannot explain.  Hmmm?  Typically, when I read a love story such as this, being female, I prefer a female author as they tend to be able to portray more into the ‘feelings’ than a male author.  This is NOT the case with Michael Baron.  His writing talent is outstanding!  His words are like music!  The plot line is so smooth and very well thought out.  He can write from the point of view of both sexes equally as well.  The story flows beautifully.  He has such a talent with story telling that touches the heart.  I HIGHLY recommend this book if you are looking for a love story you won’t likely forget!
Ken and Melissa are so much in love and are only a week away from their wedding.  Each week they visit Melissa’s parents, have dinner, then Melissa’s mother gets out the photo albums of Melissa as she was growing up and she pours over the memories of Melissa with KenKen loves this.  He wants to know everything there was to know about his Melissa before he had met her.  Everything. 
One night they went out to dinner at a Chinese restaurant, and their fortune cookies they each got both had very special messages for each one of them which will take us further into the future of this story.  They pretty much disregarded the fortunes by stating the fortune cookie fortunes aren’t even really fortunes anymore as they are statements.  Well . . . this time is does turn out that they are a type of fortune to come true!
One day he went into their favorite store near where they live in Washington D.C., as he was looking for a special wedding gift for Melissa.  They had found this store together one Saturday afternoon and both had agreed they had found the most original and unique store full of the most beautiful things that no other store ever had.  It was their favorite store.  They always knew they could find anything special they wanted here.  As Ken was looking for that special wedding gift for Melissa, the owner, Stephon, told him he had some more things Ken would be very interested in, coming in two days.  Stephon told Ken to come back then and he would have something spectacular for him.  He also told him, in the meantime, to think about what type of fantasy would Ken like for him and Melissa.  Ken had to think about this one.  He wasn’t quite sure what Stephon meant.  Ken knew what he wanted instantly.  He would continue to think about it and tell Stephon when he came back in.
Ken went back into the store and saw Stephon’s new items.  Stephon was right.  Ken found the perfect gift.  As he and Stephon were talking, Stephon asked Ken if he had given any more thought as to what fantasy he had for himself and MelissaKen still knew what he wanted, and it had not changed.  Ken told Stephon he wanted to see more of Melissa as she was growing up.  Stephon said he ‘could’ do it, but Ken could not do anything to alter the history during this trip through Melissa’s history.  All I will say is there is so much more to this story that it is a MUST read!  You don’t want to miss this one! 
This story was so touching.  I felt everything Ken felt for MelissaKen’s love for Melissa is so deep and touching that he would do “Anything” for Melissa.  Come along on the ride with this author’s story and find out how great this story is and what happens!
