Seven tequila shots.
Stacey is good at pretending.
She pretends that the boy she's in love with doesn't exist.
She pretends that she's happy to live and die in this small town.
She pretends that her life is carefree while her best friend's world crumbles before her very eyes.
But Stacey's got a secret ...
And it's going to ruin everything.
Eleven Weeks is the story of Kate's best friend, Stacey--and the whole lot of life that can happen in just eleven weeks. Second book in the Crazy in Love series.
All right, all the people have been asking … how come you didn’t make a move on Michael sooner, if you’ve loved him for all these years?
I didn’t make a move on him sooner primarily because he had a girlfriend, and I’m not that mean! And before that, apparently he never tried to make a move on me because I always had a boyfriend or didn’t act particularly interested.
Cut me some slack here, people! I didn’t want to take a chance because I thought he mighta been the one guy really worth fighting for.
And that would mean potentially getting hurt.
I’m not ready for that.
Let’s talk underage drinking. This book opens after you’ve done a whole lot of that …
Excuse me, I was twenty-four hours away from being of legal drinking age! Cut me some slack, please!
I have to admit though, I did drink a lot, and I have been trying to drink less. The thing is, I get so mad. I went to a relatively good school in a relatively quiet town, and I knew maybe one or two people who didn’t do those things, but if you read about doing them in a book, everyone’s all in an uproar. I just wanted to show you what my life was like. And I know I am not alone in it.
What do you look for in a guy?
Good arms, mostly.
Oh, I mean, aside from that, I guess having a sense of humour is important. And I think I’m one of the few people out there who actually just wants someone head-over-heels nice. I’ve been with too many ‘bad boys’, and honestly? They’re not all they’re cracked up to be.
My perfect guy would also have a good sense of humour, be kind and intelligent – but not too intelligent! Not so smart they make me feel stupid.
And have I mentioned the arms thing yet? Because seriously. Good arms!
What’s the biggest thing you learnt during those eleven weeks of your life?
That it’s important to trust in yourself. You can deal with whatever the world throws at you: I promise.
