Life has always been pretty easy on me. I wake up every morning, drink too much coffee, log in a few hours of work, relax and then start the process all over again the next day.
Like I said, easy.
Of course, like everyone, life has been known to throw me the occasional curve ball - just a little something to remind me not to get too comfortable. Because once you get to that point, where things have fallen into a routine of complacency, that Son of a Bitch called life comes back with a vengeance; ready to send his size 13 up your ass.
That’s exactly what happened to me the day that Alex Paige came back into my life.
He was different than the last time I saw him. Maybe he’d lost some weight or gotten taller– I wasn’t sure. All I knew was that something fundamental had shifted in Alex during the six months that he’d been away and I felt the compulsive need to find out what it was.
Unfortunately, that task was far more unattainable than it seemed.
Why, you ask? The answer is simple.
Alex just got a divorce.
From my sister.
About the Author:
Christen Gillan hails from a small town in the Appalachian region of Kentucky. Typically, she can be found with her nose tucked into a book or hunched over a pad of paper, undoubtedly jotting down another inappropriate idea persuading her to bring it to life.
In the off chance that she is not doing either of those things then she is definitely planted in front of a TV, obsessing over a sporting event - most likely college basketball. Other than her penchant for literature and sports, Christen is an avid music lover which is often depicted in her writing.
Hand Me Down is her debut novel.
Kate is a self proclaimed hermit, she works from home, her social activities involve war games with other on-line gamers, her best friend is connected mostly by phone calls and text messages and Sundays she has dinner with the family. Kate's world is pretty comfy except her self centered sister always manages to rock the boat.
Kate's sister Jenny is divorced and pregnant...and the baby daddy is not her ex's. Not being able to live the life she had become accustomed to, Jenny manipulates Kate into seeking some financial support from her ex, Alex. This is where the roller coaster ride begins.
Alex and Kate develop an unlikely friendship, which totally upturns Kate's life. Everything that happens over a short period of time awakens Kate to all that she has avoided and denied herself. Can Kate take a slice of heaven just for her? Will her friendship with Alex ever be anything else? Can it be anything else.
A ballsy independent young woman finally on her road the self discovery.
I hope this isn't the last we hear from these characters, I have a feeling they have a whole lot more to tell of their story!
