Alexa Monahan is broken in ways that the world cannot see. She hides those pieces of herself behind the walls she has erected to protect what little of herself that is still whole. Trust is not something she knows much about, and there is only one person the world that she trusts with everything and that’s her best friend Kari.
Trying to be normal, she starts dating Luke Rodriguez, a local bar owner as well as Chase Taylor, the zoning commissioner for the city of Racy. She feels safe with them, but as much as they deny it, she knows they must be frustrated because she hasn’t had sex with either of them. She’s scared. Scared of the past, of being hurt and hurting the two men who make her feel safe.
Surprised when Chase asks Luke to accompany them on an afternoon drive, Alexa agrees to go and during the trip, she realizes she doesn’t want to choose between them. Neither Chase nor Luke had considered a menage before but they will do whatever it takes to make Alexa happy.
As Alexa’s past begins to throw roadblocks in her path to happiness, she instinctively pushes everyone away. She collapses in on herself, seeing herself as the broken young girl who doesn’t deserve happiness, onlyasking for help and comfort when she hears noises coming from downstairs during a snowstorm.
Trying to be the woman she wants to be, Alexa slowly lets Chase and Luke into her heart and mind, but she is always waiting for something that will show them that she’s not worthy of the feelings they have for her.
Tara Rose has created a very complex character in Alexa. Alexa has many demons to face, the most important of which is her inability to love herself. Alexa believes that in some ways she caused the bad things to happen to her, either as a direct result of her actions or inability to make a decision.
By chosing to try again, Alexa give hope to all the readers that its okay to put yourself out there, to try again, that there are still good guys left in the world. She should know, she found two in Chase and Luke.
