Alex Thompson’s life is following the script. A pre-law student at Columbia University, she’s focused on her grades, her life and her future. The last thing she needs is to reconnect with the boy who broke her heart.
Dylan Paris comes home from Afghanistan severely injured and knows that the one thing he cannot do is drag Alex into the mess he’s made of his life.
When Dylan and Alex are assigned to the same work study program and are forced to work side by side, they have to make new ground rules to keep from killing each other.
Only problem is, they keep breaking the rules.
The first rule is to never, ever talk about how they fell in love.
“The story grabs hold of you and not let you go. I cried, I laughed, and I cried a little more….This book is too good to pass up, and I beg of you, please read it.” – The Indie Bookshelf
“It is a poignant and sometimes emotionally overwhelming experience of both life and love…” – The Literary Review
The entire unedited first draft of the novel is here on the blog, as well as on Wattpad.
Some notes on the experience of finishing the first draft of the book in 14 days. I wrote about some of the background here a few months ago: On being young and in love.
