Xio Axelrod is a USA Today Bestselling author of love stories, contemporary romance and (what she likes to call) strange, twisted tales. She also writes erotica as Xio Nin. Xio grew up in the music industry and began recording at a young age. When she isn’t writing stories, she can be found in the studio, writing songs, or performing on international stages (under a different, not-so-secret name of course). She lives in Philadelphia with one full-time husband and one part-time cat.

It's funny, the first thing that popped into my head wasn't from a book, but from a song by Jeff Buckley called "Lover You Should Have Come Over". Contemplative, heartbreaking, and angsty - just like I like it. The lines I remembered were:

"It's never over, my kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder.
It's never over, all my riches for her smiles when I slept so soft against her.
It's never over, all my blood for the sweetness of her laughter.
It's never over, she's the tear that hangs inside my soul forever."

I mean, wow. Wow. Right? =)(less)

On any given day, the idea of one soul mate for every person either thrills me or depresses me. I do love writing about it, though: The One. But what about those people we meet and have no romantic feelings toward whatsoever, and yet form an instant bond. Are they soul mates? Kindred spirits? I have one or two of those.(less)

Starstruck - (Excerpt from the web serial) (Romance)
5 chapters   —   updated Sep 02, 2016 07:52AM
Description: Starstruck began as a serial novel, posted on Tumblr, that was completed on 7 September 2013. The story is now available as the FALLING STARS SERIES on Amazon, etc. It centers on the relationship between Val Saunders and Sam Newman, actors at opposite ends of their careers. Hers is skyrocketing while his, well, never really took off. Fate brings them together when they’re cast as lovers on a steamy new television series. The chemistry is off the charts and when it spills over into a real life attraction, they find themselves in a situation. Sam is married. And while his relationship with his wife is toxic at best, he is an honourable man. He’s never strayed and isn’t about to start now, despite the fact that he is falling head over heels for his costar. Val certainly doesn’t want to be the “other woman”. She’s worked hard to get her career on the path to the A-list and the last thing she wants, or needs, is a scandal. If only her heart and her brain were on the same page. Starstruck explores the idea of second chances and asks hard questions about duty, fidelity, happiness and love. It is a sexy, sensual, and emotional rollercoaster ride that reminds us that love, while not always easy, should always be worth it. Follow Val and Sam on Twitter: @ValSaunders_WtP @SamNewmanWTP

“Some books are like chewing gum. They have just enough flavour to sate you for an hour or so. Others are like gourmet meals. Meticulously crafted with complex flavours that - while exciting during consumption - leave only a vague memory behind. The best books are like old recipes, passed down through generations. They stick with you long after the last bite. You want to return to them again and again, because they become a part of who you are. I want to write those.”
