So I bet you are also wondering what our part of the stop involves?
Seeing as I had the honor of reviewing Pieces of Us in Februrary I got to interview Owen!
(If you missed my review, you can find it in this POST)

Here is our conversation.

Q1- So Owen, I really admire your determination and selflessness when it came to helping Charlotte let go of her past. You must really love her?

Owen: Thanks for having me here, Renee and Stacey. I do love Charlotte. I loved her from the first time I saw her and I just knew that I was going to marry that girl. I couldn't tell you exactly what it is about her, except that when I'm around her, I feel like myself. Charlotte makes me a better man and I hope I make her a better woman... I think I do.

Q2- How important was it for you that she let go?

Owen: It was vital for me that she let go of Cameron. When I proposed, I saw the fear that flashed in her eyes for a second before she said yes. I needed to know what that fear was about and when I found out about her previous marriage and how it ended, well, I knew she had to put that past behind her before we could move forward. I didn't want to wake up in ten years and find that she wasn't really in love with me, or have her walk out on me because of issues she carried around from a previous relationship. I wanted our lives to be a fresh start together.

Q3- You became quite good friends with Charlotte's father. Did it help that you both work in the police force?

Owen: Michael is great. I will admit that he frightened me a little at first. He came across as very protective but after I found out the way Cameron had treated Charlotte, I could completely understand his defensiveness and we understood each other. It took me a while to convince him that I was a good guy, but I think being a cop did help. He respected me for the work I did because he did it too.

Q4- What made you become a police officer?

Owen: My dad was a police officer too and was killed when I was a young boy. I don't know why but ever since then I was determined to be a cop too. My Mom wasn't too crazy about the idea but I felt like I needed to protect other kids from losing their dads like I did. I don't regret the decision - I love my job!

Q5- Dinner with Cameron's parents must have been tough on you?

Owen: You have no idea! That night was one of the most difficult things I've ever done in my whole life. But, Charlotte is the most important thing in my life and seeing her happy is all I want, so I went along for her. I don't think anyone was expecting Cameron to show up and he's lucky that his Mom pulled him aside because I was just about to lose my cool with him. Especially after he called Charlotte his wife.

Q6- What's your opinion on Cameron?

Owen: Look, I don't have anything against the guy. If I had have met him under different circumstances, I may have even liked him but the fact is, he's my fiance's ex-husband. I don't like what he did to Charlotte in the past but if he hadn't cheated, she never would have left him so it all worked out pretty well for me in the end. My hope was that Charlotte and Cameron would talk, sort out their previous issues and allow Charlotte to move on in her new life with me. I was NOT expecting them to spark up a friendship and have him become a part of our lives.

Well thankyou for answering my questions and I wish you all the best.

Owen: Thanks for having me ladies. It was nice to get a chance to voice my opinions on the situation because Charlotte's view is the only one explained in the book.



So now I suppose I have to give you something right?
I'm guessing you need some sort of letter?

Here it is!
