Hi Y’all! We are rounding out this month of romance in the air specials with Melissa Keir and her book Forever Love. I asked Melissa what her five favorite movies to watch on Valentines day. Here are her picks.
The five best movies to watch on Valentine’s Day….There are so many movies to choose from. I am only touching the tip of the romantic movie iceberg. You may have your own favorite romantic Valentine’s Day movie, and watching it with the one you love while feeding each other is a perfect way to spend your Valentine’s Day.
- Ghost– Love doesn’t have to end with death. In Ghost, we find out that love never dies. You will want to recreate the clay scene but use whipped cream. Easier clean up and edible!
- The Notebook-This movie is about a relationship that lasts a lifetime. I love how they weave the tale between the past to the present. It made me remember my crush on James Garner. It gives me hope that even when I’m old and grey, my husband will still be by my side.
- West Side Story– A modern day Romeo and Juliet tale with music and dancing. Opposites attract and friends battle as young love blossoms among the city streets. I couldn’t decide if I was more Natalie Wood or Rita Moreno, so I often did both! And the songs will stay with you long after the movie ends.
- Love Actually– It’s about more than just love but also the mistakes me make in relationships. My heart broke for Emma Thompson’s character whose husband didn’t see the value in her but chose a shiny new toy. There’s a couple for everyone to relate to in this movie.
- PS I Love You– Love is sometimes letting go. Two words- Gerard Butler. His sexy accent and the way he helps his wife through the roughest moment of her life, make him a dream come true. Not to mention, singing while wearing suspenders and silky boxers…*sigh*. Have your Valentine recreate the fun dance. You will thank me.
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
Great picks Melisssa I agree with them all. I will add in my favorite…Best Friends Wedding. and a Bed Of Roses

*I was given a copy of this book for an honest review*
A little more Forever Love:
“I remember your best friends. They loved to torment me in high school. I think their nickname for me was inaccurate, Sinful Syndie. Too bad I wasn’t sinful, I might have had more dates,” I added sarcastically.
“I missed that—your sense of humor and possessive nature. No one was like you. Do you remember the night of your big sleepover? When you got so jealous that you froze that girl’s bra because she came on to me? I wish I could have seen her face! Syn, there were times you were hell on wheels.” I gave him a shove. He started to laugh as my face warmed from embarrassment, and continued talking. “I’m glad you’re back. I missed you.”
“I missed you too. You were my best friend. I’m sure if my mom was alive today she would’ve already had out those old photos of us in the sandbox and been rambling on about how cute we were.”
Melissa Keir has always wanted to be an author when she wasn’t hoping for a career as a race car driver. Her love of books was instilled by her mother and grandparents who were avid readers. She’d often sneak books away from them so that she could fantasize about those strong alpha males and plucky heroines. In middle school and high school, Melissa used to write sappy love poems and shared them with her friends and still has those poems today! In college her writing changed to sarcastic musings on life as well as poems with a modern twist on fairy tales and won awards for her writing. You can find many of these musings along with her latest releases on her website and blog.
Melissa doesn’t believe in down time. She’s always keeping busy. Melissa is a wife and mother, an elementary school teacher, a book reviewer, owner of a publishing company as well as an author. Her home blends two families and is a lot like the Brady Bunch, without Alice—a large grocery bill, tons of dirty dishes and a mound of laundry. She loves to write stories that feature happy endings and is often seen plotting her next story.
