Kate Laurens
Genre: New Adult Romance
A fresh start...
It’s been three years since Serena King learned to say no—no to the boys that were a desperate cry for help, no to the extra weight she put on in self defense, and most of all no to the abuse that has haunted her since she was fifteen. Now a sophomore in college, all she wants is to be normal.  The last thing she expects is a guy who can make her want... make her want everything.
A new guy...
Alex Blackthorn is a bundle of contradictions, a sexy dark haired badness who goes slow... deliciously slow. And despite the iron will that has gotten her through the last few years, Serena finds herself unable to ignore the heat that sizzles between them whenever they’re together.
A dark past...
Serena never thought she could be involved in a relationship, but Alex makes her long for things she thought were out of her reach forever. When he finds out her secret... when he finds out what she did to keep herself sane... will he still want her, or he will treat her just like everyone else?
And Alex has a secret of his own.

Recommended for mature readers aged 17+ due to language and sexual content.

What gave you the inspiration to write this book?

I'm not sure that any one thing inspired it. I was casting around for an idea for a new adult romance, and it just slowly grew.

Who is your favorite character in the book?

I love them all--I've come to know them all so well! But I definitely have a crush on Alex.

Which came first, the title or the novel?

The novel.

What scene in the book are you most proud of, and why?

The scene in which Alex shares his secret with Serena really resonated with me. I feel like it has the punch that I was hoping it would.

Thinking way back to the beginning, what's the most important thing you've learned as a writer from then to now?

I've learned a lot about story structure, and plot. Those are both things that come with experience, I think.

What do you like most about the cover of the book?

I love everything! My friend Sara Fawkes did it for me, and I just think it's gorgeous. It really captures the characters of Serena and Alex.

What new release book are you looking most forward to in 2013?

I'm enjoying working on Kaylee's story right now. And I'll probably be excited about Maddy's after that!

What was your favorite book in 2012?

To read? I loved Tidal by Emily Snow.

What's up next for you?
 I'm working on Love Me If You Dare, which will tell Kaylee's story.

Is there anything that you would like to add? 
Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy Alex and Serena's story!
