Hi everyone! Thank you so much for joining all of us for the Wattpad Block Party! I'm definitely over the moon to be here, and I'm really excited to share a special post and giveaway with all of you. (More on both of those in a moment.)
How many of you have been following along all month? I'd love to hear about what your favorite posts and giveaways so far have been, and to know where you're joining the party from!
My name is Jennifer Farwell, and I like to write love stories. Today I'm changing things up with a scene from my YA Romance book, SEVEN WEEKS TO FOREVER, and retelling it from a different character's point of view. This alternate perspective retelling is brand new and not part of the book that's published here on Wattpad. I'm also having a special giveaway with a prize for two lucky winners! Check it out below.
I know many others have said this, and it definitely bears repeating: let's send an enormous thank you to KellyAnneBlount, our wonderful host, for putting her heart and soul into the Wattpad Block Party and making it such a fun and amazing event for everyone!
Now... who's ready to party? Here we go!
A bit about Seven Weeks to Forever and this scene retelling
Since the story is told from the perspective of main character Cassidy Jordan, everything that's known about Riley Davis, the guy Cassidy is tasked with finding and helping, comes through Cassidy's lens. If you aren't familiar with the book, Cassidy learns that finding and helping Riley also means dating him. So, what's going on with Riley during the end of their first date, after he takes Cassidy out to a romantic Italian restaurant in L.A. to celebrate her eighteenth birthday? He becomes an open book to us for the first time in this retold scene.
If you've read SEVEN WEEKS TO FOREVER, I hope you enjoy hearing from Riley and this new take! If you haven't read it, I hope you enjoy the scene and that it gives you a fun introduction to Riley, Cassidy, and the book.

Riley's turn – a retelling of a scene from Chapter Five:
I have no game.
Cassidy probably thinks our fingers brushed together by accident, especially since I just chickened out and shoved my hands into my pockets. Smooth, right? I mean, I was only going to hold her hand. I wasn't asking her to marry me or something. It should have been natural at this point in the night, but I froze.
It wouldn't even be the first time I held her hand. We were palm to palm with our fingers laced together the night she was being harassed by a group of guys who anyone could see were bad news. It wasn't a romantic gesture that evening, but me playing the part of her boyfriend for a few minutes to make those sketchballs back off.
There was something I felt then that I still can't explain. It was as though tiny little sparks covered my fingers and palm for a second or two—and yeah, I know that sounds like it came straight from the script of a bad romantic comedy. Maybe those rom-coms are on to something, though, because it was enough to knock me off course. I've been thinking about that feeling, and about her, ever since.
