I'll tell you what happened - I fell completely and hopelessly in love with Vance because as I read he became more than a figment of imagination created by the author but as someone who I could at anytime meet in my daily life. He had depth and character and I went to bed wondering where was Vance when I was in high school. He makes such an impression on people that on more than one occasion, people find themselves having "Vance" sightings. I know I have (I went to my local library one day and when I walked into the building I saw this guy and I kid you not, my VERY first thought was "OMG Vance is here") Reading about Vance, his meeting Portia and their growing relationship, the glimpses you get of what his life is like (is it just me or does the tortured bad boy stop you from breathing?) and those heartbreaking scenes in the end, created an instant connection to the story and solidly trapped me in it. I was left wanting more and it was in that moment that I became a member (and future president) of the "We Love Vance Mangum" fan club and dedicated myself to the mission of converting the world to him - one heart at a time. I've been known to break out into Vance rants and incite Vance love fests and as I've talked with others, they also see Vance the same way I do and comment on how he literally leaps off the page and steals their hearts. Vance is addicting, pure and simple and with two books under his belt and another two on the way, I'm sitting on the edge of my seat impatient because I KNOW Vance is just going to keep on getting better.
