In her existential crisis era.

Easy-going Megan Riley is hiding something. Years ago, a family tragedy left her with a fortune —and terrible survivor’s guilt. Even her inner circle doesn’t know her secrets. But her friends need an angel investor for their new app, and Megan has the cash. She’s thrilled to make their dreams come true, so long as she remains out of the spotlight. If only it were that easy.

Giving uptight vibes.

Straight-laced Luke Paris is in Nashville to market a new dating app. It’s a killer opportunity. Except he didn’t realize a friend group came attached. Luke is lousy at socializing and avoids small talk, but the enigmatic Megan immediately captures his attention. Fascinated and frustrated, he aches to know the authentic her. If only he could loosen up and get his foot out of his mouth.

Chat me up, baby.

On paper, Megan and Luke don’t match. Online, however, inhibitions vanish and “types” get redefined. The connection is real—and real hot. Can their steamy secret romance thrive IRL? Will dynamite digital chemistry survive its collision course with reality? Or will everything blow up in their faces?



There was another obstacle we hadn’t seen. It was a sandbag tied to a rope that you had to haul about 20 feet into the air. Melody and Nick were nearly done. No one else was around. “This is hard when you’re all wet,” Melody huffed to Megan.

“That’s what he said,” Megan and Nick shouted in unison, then broke down laughing. Nick laughed so hard, he lost his grip on the bag he and Melody were hoisting together. It slipped, and Melody nearly flew into the air with the rope.

“Sorry, sorry,” Nick gasped as the bag hit the ground with a thud.

I turned to Megan. “Pull. They’re distracted.”

Melody wasn’t wrong, poor choice of words as they may have been. Megan and I each tried the bag before we figured out that wrapping the rope around us made a difference.

“Wait. I have an idea.” Megan braced her feet on the railing in front of us and grabbed several feet higher than I was holding so that she was standing on the rail. “Get ready to fall backward, okay?”

Before I could ask, her shoulders crashed into my chest. My arms wrapped around her instinctively as we fell to the ground with a mutual grunt. At least the rope broke our fall.

She lay on top of me for a second and then sat up. I was still on my back, but I heard her say, “Bend your knees.” As soon as I did, she hooked her feet under my ankles. Then, she began to haul.

I grabbed her hips and planted my feet. Even so, the weight of the bag nearly lifted her up. “Hold on, I’m almost there,” she gritted out as she reached hand over hand.

So my job was to make sure her ass stayed pinned to my lap.

I probably would’ve enjoyed it more if I hadn’t been so aware that we were slightly beating the other two. Or been mortified. Or both.

If you have any other post ideas feel free!

Why is Luke neurodivergent?

Luke is depicted as an undiagnosed ASD Level 1 in Just Your Type. In the first iteration of this story, written years ago, he was simply uptight and reserved through most of the book.

Since then, I have learned much more about neurodivergence and how it manifests. I realized that it made perfect sense for Luke to process the world differently. It explains certain compulsions (like the hatred of small talk) and why he holds back from Megan.

Neurodivergence is a difficult thing to discuss because it is so broad and unique. It is important to be aware of the risk of generalizing. For example, Autism is a condition that can be very mild—or completely debilitating. However, understanding that neurodivergence truly is a spectrum can help many people find answers to why they process the world differently.

I based Luke’s character on two people I know who are self-diagnosed as neurodivergent. I deliberately avoided depicting him as having a specific condition. That was not the goal. The goal was to show a man who loved deeply but expressed it differently. Someone who knew he didn’t do things like “everyone else” and often “stood in his own way,” but who nonetheless had found ways to navigate life and make it work for him.

I want to thank the people who inspired Luke. They know who they are. Thank you for loving me and showing me the brilliance of you. I’m a better person because you both helped me look at the world in new, fascinating ways.

I also want to thank Sandy for reading this with an eye on Luke. For coaching me to make him more vibrant and real. And, as above, for loving me and showing me the brilliance of you. I am absolutely better off in this life because of our dear friendship and all I continue to learn from you.
