It was something I thrived on once. Something that I longed to have in my life every day, and when I found it at a young age, I clung to it. I snatched up the boy as fast as I could, intending to make him mine forever.
I never expected my marriage to turn out the way it did. I never expected for my husband to let me go. For that love that I had invested in to come crumbling down around me. Something that once gave me such great joy.
After the pieces of myself broke, I was surprised to find a man who was willing to pick them up, to catch me as I fell. What he wanted from me though, I didn’t know if I could give him. All he wanted was for me to let him in.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I started writing this book while in college, it came from me at a time where I was trying to escape to somewhere I wanted to be besides at a desk. After 5 years of putting it to the side, I finally picked it back up and gave life to Alexa and Max, and it wasn't until know that I realized subconsciously I was writing about personal experiences from my life.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I came up with my characters from who I thought were myself and my ex, but now I realize that I was writing my ex as the bad guy and writing the kind of guy I was hoping for and dreaming of as my significant other.
“Fine.” Like that, Max changed in front of my eyes. He straightened himself up, and the total mess of a guy who had walked through my door moments ago was gone. The Max I first met was back and I was just another girl, but there was something still in his eyes. The fire was still there. He leaned his head down towards me before he left the room. “I will never give up, Alexa. As much as you push me away, you are the only woman for me, and if I have to wait our whole lives for you to admit your feelings, then so be it.”
I held my breath as he walked away, leaving the door ajar. When I heard the front door shut, I sank down to the floor and cried. I was curled into the fetal position, trying to hug my knees to my chin. I thought the smaller I got, the more it would help me disappear from this situation completely. I didn’t know how I had gotten myself into this mess so quickly after Adam had broken my heart. Lilly and Erica lay on the floor next to me, cuddling me tight and not letting go. At least I had some form of support.
“You’re a crazy woman for letting him walk away.” Lilly’s words rang in my ear. At least I thought I had support.
“Am I really that crazy?” The words broke from me as sobs.
“You are.” The soft words came from Erica, and I knew if she was chiming in I had screwed up.
“What can I do?” I tried to calm myself and breathe, wiping away the tears. “I just fucked everything up with two words, one question. How do I come back from this?”
Lilly rubbed her hand up and down my back. This floor was not comfortable at all. Erica grabbed my face, looked me dead in the eyes and gave it to me hard.
“You tell him you love him, and don’t tell me you don’t. We all see how you look at him. If that isn’t love, then I don’t know what is.” She wiped a tear away.
