Dr. Guy Hunter secures his dream fellowship with a beautiful free spirit by his side. Two unexpected blue lines don’t even shake his resolve—he is on his way to having it all. Until he isn’t.
Abruption: a sudden breaking off
Jules Chiappetti loves her boisterous over-involved Italian family but is determined to pave her own way. An MBA and boardroom job is her ticket out. Until it isn’t.
Abruption: an unexpected event
Four years later, Guy is consumed by the challenges of being a single father, still struggling with the aftermath that derailed his life and left his son with special needs. He doesn’t realize his world went dark the same day his wife’s did, until Jules, his son’s new nurse, shows him the light.
Abruption. We’ve all experienced it in one way or another. A sudden loss, something unexpected….it gets us right where it hurts. In this book Guy and Jules have both been there, done that and are trying to move on…right into each other.
I immediately fell in love with both of their characters. They were BOTH stubborn, straight to the point and honest – absolutely no pussy footing around here! They were also both relaxed even though life had dealt them some really crappy cards.
Neither of them expected what they would find in each other. They were just busy “adulting” and trying to make it through another day.
“That ship had sailed for me. Or so I thought. Now I had this woman who barreled into my life screwing with my compass.”
“I didn’t recognize myself with this man, but I liked who he brought out in me. She was sexy and strong. She was unbroken. At least now.”
It was real to me. A couple that is close to my age, kids involved, lots of work and hectic schedules. This was something I could relate to. From the distance of some family members to the closeness of the over-exaggerated HUGE Italian family, this was a story that touched my heart in every aspect. Sometimes I teared up and cried but then I would find myself laughing. Then when I got to that one point…you know the one, every book has one…where you want to scream and message the authors, well yeah…that happened too!

About the Authors
Yep. That’s an “s.” There are two of us!
We’re East coast girls separated by Long Island Sound who met in Physician Assistant School and have been besties ever since. We can safely say that thirteen miles of water does not get in the way because we talk or text, no exaggeration, at least 150 times a day. No, really, we do—about everything and nothing. Shockingly, we never (we mean never) run out of things to say. Umm, ever. We definitely laugh A LOT and we’re a tad sarcastic. And if we’re being totally honest, one or two people might have, on occasion, used our names and ‘dramatic’ in the same sentence. But it’s hard to trust the sources since they married us.
It only took twelve years, two husbands, five kids, two dogs, and a two-week vacation in Cape Cod later to decide the romance world needed a splash of medicine. Write what you know.
So you can easily find us at 4 o’clock on Bank Street beach with a glass of cold Prosecco brainstorming. And guaranteed if we bump into you, literally, it’s only because our iPhones are glued to our hands (totally out of our control) either writing or editing our next novel (and yes, it is possible to do from your iPhone, we mastered it … damn those straight quotations).
When we are not working on our book or reading the latest angsty romance on our kindles, you basically name it and we have it going on. Soccer, lacrosse, golf, swimming, dance, gymnastics, football, chess, baseball, basketball, skiing, ice skating, school, homework, and more school.
Oh yeah, did we forget to mention our careers in medicine?
Needless to say, we realized fast that something had to go, so we opted for sleep. It’s completely overrated (yet so AMAZING) and delirium makes everything funnier. Good thing we share a brain and can pretty much complete each other’s sentences (definitely weird, we know), otherwise it might have taken us two years to write Beautifully Awake rather than one.
So that’s our story, who we are … just add AUTHORS to the list!
