Her poor choices lead her not only to financial crises but romantic ones as well. Sophie finds herself involved in a toxic relationship not with one, but two guys at the same time, who also happened to be brothers. No matter how hard Sophie tries to get out of the relationships, it is almost as if some unseen force is keeping these three people together.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The inspiration was life itself. As a young woman in Los Angeles, I have had my fair share of bad dating experiences, as had mostly all of my friends, and I thought it's a story worth telling.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I wanted to show that in every toxic relationship usually, both parties are toxic. Combining some of my own worst qualities, personal experiences, stories I've heard from friends, and some of my wild imagination, we've got, probably, one of the most toxic couples ever created.
TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE
“Amor Vincit Omnia”—Love Conquers All!
For as long as I remember, love has always been
an essential part of my life. I’ve been searching for it
like a thirsty woman searches for water in a desert.
Though I have never chosen the right man to
love, I guess this extreme desire to have someone
by my side didn’t let me choose wisely or be patient
enough to allow the right one to come along. I have
always been so desperate to be loved that I idealized
every guy I met, and then every time, I was left disappointed
and broken inside.
When I met Richard, he seemed to be the most
charming, funny, and intelligent guy I’d ever known
… but this Prince Charming was on a date with another
girl. I mean, he was on a date with another girl
and flirting with me! Thirty minutes later, he ordered
that girl an Uber and never called her again, or so he
told me, anyway. Red flag right there, but in my head,
HAPPILY NEVER AFTER
it all looked SO romantic; he did this because he fell
in love with me at first sight. Well, at least those were
my thoughts at that exact moment.
Around us time seemed to have stopped, but we
were moving fast. Three hours after our first meeting
we found ourselves in one of the city’s most expensive
restaurants talking about love, commitment, and relationships.
It was already four in the morning, but I
didn’t feel like going home at all—I was too excited. I
knew I wouldn’t sleep with him that night, but I was
In the parking lot, he kissed me for the first
time, and it was the most magical moment. Have you
ever heard when ladies almost fainted because of a
kiss? Well, it was most certainly the case with me.
He gave me a ride back home that night, and
after a good-night kiss, he said, “Call me in a morning.”
I just laughed and flirtatiously noted that I don’t
call guys first. I didn’t expect the response I got—he
looked at me angrily and said that if I didn’t call him
myself, we would never see each other again. I didn’t
appreciate that kind of manipulation, so I just wished
him a good night and stepped out of his car.
That day at 7:00 a.m. I got a good-morning text
. . . and then a hundred more. He seemed to be so obsessed
with me. I won’t deny that I liked it, and maybe
I liked it a little too much. I felt so in control. That’s
how it works I guess; one always loves more than the
other. I just met this guy, so I really didn’t care about
his feelings. I enjoyed the way he made me feel.
My theory is that every relationship is a playground,
and we all are players, and whoever plays the
best wins . . . and I intended to win!
