What do you hope readers take with them after they read it?
People can change. Troy grows into a better man, and we see that reflected through Bridget's responses to him through the course of the story.
Also, what you see on the surface isn't always the truth. Michelle judges Troy based on what she sees - a hockey player without any problems, which is a stark contrast to her own life. She discovers there's more to his story. Michelle is dealing with her own problems, beyond the financial pressures that are apparent on the surface. And those rise up unexpectedly.
Mostly, I hope readers enjoy these characters, and the journey they take to find their HEA Launch - Author Interview
