Hi there, I’m Becca Siller author of The Broken Road Series. Thank you so much for having me here with you today to talk about Wanting You and Needing You the first two books in the series.
The first book Wanting You is the a little darker. The reader follows Charlotte McElroy through her initial meeting and relationship with the celeb hottie Wyatt Grayson. After meeting in Vegas their relationship takes off in a flurry of passion and pain. Charlotte “Charlie” has to navigate the budding relationship as well as avoid her abusive ex Tony. In Wanting You Tony wreaks havoc on not only Charlie’s relationship with Wyatt but also her body and mind. Wanting You ends with Charlie’s recovery after being abducted by her ex. Now in Needing You she has to deal with the emotional and physical backlash of that horrific event. She also has to learn how to deal with the consequences of her actions and decisions. Charlie’s journey is far from over but I think in Needing You the reader gets to see a different side of Charlie. They get to know her on a deeper level and hopefully will learn a little more about the psyche of a batter woman. We learn more about our sexy lead Wyatt Grayson. There is a story behind the brooding man whore. Riley plays a bigger role in the second book in the series giving readers an outsider’s perspective as well as getting a little more insight into her life and relationship with Miles Porter.
After Wanting You was published last year I took all the comments and reviews to heart when writing Needing You. I wanted the readers to get to know the characters better from a deeper level. I know at time Charlie seems to be a bit naive and in Needing You there are times when you just want to smack her. I think I wrote her the way I did because I believe people make stupid decisions at some point in their lives and have to learn to deal with the consequences. I felt as though Wyatt was very reactionary in the first book and tried to carry that through to the second. He doesn’t really think before he acts and so therefore does things he regrets later.
Overall I think the second book has a lot of heart in it. All the characters have a purpose even if it doesn’t seem to be that way just yet. I hope everyone who takes the time to read these stories are able to connect with someone or something in them. I enjoy writing in every way and reading reviews where people love my stories and characters make it worth the long hours. There are so many exciting things to come in book three. I hope you are all ready for it.
