Brooke Anderson never pictured herself as a divorcee at twenty-eight. But when she mentions getting a post-nup to her husband Garrett after one deliciously sex-filled year, he promptly serves her with divorce papers. Admittedly, she could’ve told him about how her father left her and her mother homeless when she was young, and how she’s never been wired to trust anyone. Especially those closest to her. Now, all she wants to do is avoid anywhere he might be so she won’t have to face him again.
But she’s not the only one who can’t seem to trust.
Garrett Call grew up with parents who married for money and wants no part of a life that puts material possessions above love. He reinvented himself in college, complete with a new last name so he couldn’t be tied to his family’s lucrative business. He never even told Brooke the truth. Admittedly, he could’ve handled the issue of a post-nup better with his ex-wife. Maybe he didn’t count on how much he was going to miss having her in his life.
When their best friends’ wedding forces the exes to see each other again, a dangerous man from Garrett’s world threatens Brooke’s life. And they realize the only way to save themselves is to finally learn to trust each other.
– When and where do you prefer to write?
My top choices are the library or a bookstore, preferably when it’s raining. When I’m not out of the house, I settle for my desk overlooking a window at night.
– Do you have a certain ritual?
I actually don’t. I write whenever I have a spare moment. I will say that I have a lot of trouble writing if I don’t have music playing in the background.
– Is there a drink of some food that keeps you company while you write?
Coffee! I’m a huge fan of chocolate flavors.
– What is your favourite book?
Anything by Christina Lauren!
– Do you consider writing a different genre in the future?
Definitely! I’d like to try mystery/thriller or New Adult at some point.
– Do you sometimes base your characters on people you know?
I actually base my characters more on random strangers than on people I know. The mystery is more fun to me.
– Do you take a notebook everywhere in order to write down ideas that pop up?
I used to. But now I take notes on my phone. If I’m going somewhere I’ll be for a while, like the library, I definitely bring a notebook along.
– Which genre do you not like at all?
This is hard because I read pretty much everything, but if I had to pick my least favorite to read, it’d be paranormal.
– If you had the chance to co-write a book. Whom would it be with?
– If you should travel to a foreign country to do research, which one would you chose and why?
Ireland. It looks so beautiful and there’s so much history everywhere there. The Cliffs of Moher and the Rock of Cashel alone make me want to write a book!
