When her friend Julia needed help forming a revenge plan against her ex-boyfriend, Ava was happy to lend a hand. She never expected that in the course of making Liam pay, she'd be the one to fall hard. . .for the one person who was absolutely off-limits. Crushing on the guy who humiliated her best friend is definitely against the girl code. Besides, Ava has goals. Her life is all about graduating with honors and landing the perfect job. And Liam Bailey—sweet-talking, complicated son of a well-known local politician—isn't part of those plans. But Liam doesn't give up easily. And he doesn't intend to let their friends' opinions, his parents' disapproval or Ava's past get in the way of what he wants--Ava's heart.
It starts with Ava helping her friend Julia avoid er ex Liam. Liam wronged her and she wants to make him pay by torturing him. Things change when Ava starts to have feelings for Liam. Liam realizes that he wants Ava and he will bit settle until her has her.
So It was hard for me to be into this story at first. I did not like Liam. I thought he was just a playboy jerk with a rich family. But man am glad I kept reading. Liam is a mis understood person. He loves Ava so much and really is just a sweet guy who will do anything to keep Ava in his life.
Ava is the strong women who helps Liam confront his family and help him accept what he really wants. This was an awesome story. I loved it!

What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why? I think for me, Ava finally realizing that she can trust Liam--which ultimately, I think, happens at her brother's wedding. Writing about an Italian wedding was very near and dear to my heart.
What inspired you to write your first book? It was a meeting of time, opportunity and inspiration. . .and the persistence of characters who wanted to be heard.
Tell us about the cover/s and how it/they came about? I am horrible at choosing covers. I have wonderful cover artists who listen to me outline my story and then give me their best shot. And then I have other people who tell me yay or nay. I can usually tell when the right cover is ready to go. . .thanks to the hard work and talent of those around me!
