Why I adore the opposites attract trope!

Thank you so much for having me over today!

I’m so excited to talk a little bit about why I adore the opposites attract trope!

Love Beyond Opposites is the third standalone in the Grad Night series and I’ve wanted to write it since I started the series! All three books take place at ONE epic grad night party, told from different perspectives.

Lennon is my rock star with a heart of gold who throws the party at his lake house.
Jade is my mathlete who wants to get wild for just ONE night before she goes off to college.

They couldn’t be more different. He is destined for the stage and on the road to fame. She is a mathlete with a secret passion who is having a hard time figuring out which path she wants to choose. But when they come together? It’s electric.

There is something so wonderful about writing two characters who are so distinctively different. I think it allows for the characters to see beneath the surface with each other, and that is definitely the case when it comes to Jade and Lennon.

There is also so much fun snarky banter when it comes to opposites, and I couldn’t get enough of Jade’s approach to Lennon’s B.S. She always calls him on it, and pushes him to be better to himself, and Lennon does the same for Jade. It made for plenty of laugh out loud moments while writing, along with some incredibly hot tension.

Opposites have such great angst, and that is so the case for Lennon and Jade. The more the night goes on, the more the heat revs up between them, and I believe it sets the pace for the novel super well. There is a ticking clock for Lennon to get back to his party and ready for his career make-or-break show, but he doesn’t want to waste a second away from Jade. She’s his opposite, and yet he can’t resist her!

It’s a bitter sweet end to the Grad Night series because I love all of these characters so much and didn’t want the party to ever stop! But, ending the series with Jade and Lennon was always the plan, and I believe they put on one hell of a show!

Love Beyond Opposites Excerpt:
“It’s in your music.”
“That’s just performance. Playing to the crowd. More than half my audience is of the female persuasion. I have to write love songs to keep them wanting more.”
“No.” She shook her head. “Not what you play on stage.” I sat up straighter in the seat.“I’m talking about the times you think no one is
listening. Those moments when your door is cracked, and you close your eyes with nothing but you and your black acoustic. The melodies are usually hauntingly beautiful, and the few words that slip past your lips are...”
An awareness slid over my senses, like tiny shocks of electricity.
“Poetic,” she finally said.
The blood in my veins pulsed hard and hot, and a tremor raced down my spine. No one had ever nailed me straight to the core before—no one had ever seen me as clearly as she just illustrated—and it scared the hell out of me.
