In any book, the plot moves forward because of conflicts. There are two types, internal and external, but what really peaks a reader’s interest isn’t always the conflict, but what the character does about it. Did the teen girl go through the locked door to save a best friend even thought a serial killer might be on the other side? Did the romantic hero show up at the church in time to stop the love of his life from marrying someone else?
In Unexpectedly Yours, the second Forever Love Story, Caroline Rossi is faced with a series of choices that ultimately change her life. The same can be said for my hero, Josh Campbell. Both Josh and Caroline are set on a course that requires them to choose to take risks, toss aside stereotypes and trust their hearts.
It’s not an easy thing to do because both of them have been burned before, add to that the fact that the two are polar opposites and the likelihood that they will end up together becomes even more doubtful. But what is that about opposites attracting?
In any relationship we have to take risks and make choices. It’s one side of the coin with friendships, but when we flip it over and make the decision to risk our hearts, the choices are that much more critical. That much more scary and in turn the reward is that much greater.
Tell me about a risk you took that had a big payoff. Was it worth it?
I enjoyed chatting with you all! Leave a comment so we can keep this going!
