The Hardest Part
So I like Asher. A lot. He’s broody and sexy and he has an accent, and what’s NOT to like??
But Ash? He was super easy to write. He was pretty straightforward, you know—a kid who got everything he thought he wanted, only to realize ‘oh shit, this isn’t what I thought.’
But. Luca. Luca was not easy. He was not straightforward. He was complicated and unplanned and demanding and I totally love him. He was the hold up on this book—why I almost missed my deadline, and why I cheered when I finally figured out his story.
Luca was supposed to be a background character, part of another couple who had a touch of kink that could maybe be explored in the future. That’s all he was supposed to be.
And then I started writing him and he got pushy and demanding—he wanted his own story. And he wanted Megan and Asher.
But the reasons why he is the way he is? That took forever to puzzle out. And when I did, it broke my heart.
Asher can be complicated with his issues and Megan has a whole bag of nonsense to puzzle through—but those are normal things that we all get to face. Life not being exactly what we expected and how we adjust.
Luca, though, has been through hell and come out stronger for it. Which is what I love about him. And why he was the hardest part of this book.
