Rike and Peyton fell in love in college.
A boy from the wrong side of the tracks, covered in ink and crooning in a bar is the last person a straight laced girl with a art major should fall for, but his rough edges made her jagged, alive, shaving away the coddled southern princess and revealing a soul wild and brilliant.
They fell in love, despite her family and his past and all the reasons why it wouldn't work--and with their best friends, they made a life. Everyone was supposed to live happily ever after.
They, more than anyone, knows that life doesn't go according to plan.
Rike and Peyton fell in love in college. A boy with a guitar, and a poet's heart, and a girl with freckles dusted over her nose, a perfect fucking fairy tale.
But what happens when the fairy tale doesn't fall apart--but is forgotten?
The Conundrum of Circumstance
I’m fascinated by circumstance. A girl meets a boy in a bar, and the mood is good. The chemistry is great. She’s coming off a fantastic interview and happy with everything, and gives this guy a shot, when most of the time, he wouldn’t be her type. He wouldn’t get a second look.
But everything lines up right and they fall in love, right? And it’s all happy sunshine and roses.
But what if the circumstance changes? What if your soul mate forgets they’re supposed to love you and the circumstances are so very different as they try to put life back together.
What then? When the circumstances aren’t perfect and everything is lined up for you to fall apart?
That’s the circumstance—the what if—that drove Before & After. Because I’m just as fascinated by true love and soul mates, and what happens when the person you love isn’t the person you thought you’d pick.
It was at times heartbreaking to explore, and also a lot of fun, and I hope you enjoy following Rike and Peyton’s story as much as I did. <3 span="">3>
