When I sat down to plot out the series, I always knew the first book would be a friends to lovers story. I’m a huge fan of watching a friendship grow between characters, or knowing that the couple has known one another for most of their lives, and then seeing it grow and change into more.
In Lucky Break a lot of it had to do with the small town of Shamrock Falls as well.
Sidney and Kade grew up there. They went to school there, learned to ride bikes and got into trouble there. They shared kisses, and proms, parties all throughout their childhood.
They saw each other through hard times and laughed in this close-knit, community.
That past molded who they both are and it was important to both of them…
And then Sidney left.
When the story picks up current day we have characters who have been apart for five years. Who are re-learning who they each are, but that foundation they built as children in their sleepy little town of Shamrock Falls is still there.
It’s a story about best friends who will always mean the world to each other no matter what. That even if something comes between them, they still have that part of them that will always belong to each other.
It’s about learning to grow and move forward without forgetting who you were. It’s possible to merge those people and it’s a pretty incredible thing to do.
I had a blast writing Sidney and Kade’s love story—showing their past and watching these two best friends recreate their future.
