Hello Cc,

The order of the books is definitely out of wack on Goodreads. I intend to get a hold of a Goodreads librarian.

As for the ending, the result is in the title. "The Co-Parent." If they ended up as a couple, it would defeat the dynamic of the story I was trying to tell. They would just be parenting. Each book in this series is dedicated to real life scenarios that people face in their relationships. I never want to sacrifice the relatable realism. Some of these stories will end with a traditional success, and some won't, making them more individual to the readers and their own personal lives.

The story is about their romance, which results in a child, but not a lasting sort between them. It is now transferred to the child, by being co-parents and their best selves for her.

However, the book does have what is called a "Non-traditional" HEA. Remember, the face of romance changes with our time. Where in historical romance (original romance), a happily ever after would require a guy or the perfect relationship, now, the more common outcome is self-acceptance that will lead to the right person. Instead of settling for the potential your mate has, it's about either loving them for who they are or having the strength to move on.

Where my female lead has found her fulfillment in continuing to further her education, her career, and being a mother. I hint at a possible romance as well.

Gabe is actually in a rebound relationship, built on his desire to grow, but growth can't be forced.

In the end, I do plan to give Gabe and Brianna another book down the road, but not now. The upside is, The Co-Parent will be released in a second edition at one point with a Q&A from me covering the most common questions, especially this one, in more depth. (less)

This is the sort of shot in the arm every author needs and I appreciate it so much!

I'm beyond honored that you took the time to read my work and even more ecstatic that you enjoyed it! The Divorce was one of my favorite stories to write and it launched a series about the awkward and difficult road that is 'human relationships'.

Now it is book one in "The Relationship Quo Series". Three other books in the collection are published so far, including:

The Friend Zone
The Co-Parent
The Significant Other

Thank you again for making my entire week with your kind words! Stay in touch! (less)

I read this because a friend made me do it. Now it’s almost midnight and I need a bath of boiling water, a therapist, and Jesus.

This book was so intensely hot that I think my kindle ignited.

Plus the story itself, the concept was creative as hell!

“I found a lacy red bra she left behind that fell by her bedside. Not to seem too Edward Cullen but I brought it to my nose.”
Nicole Strycharz, The Divorce

“We both looked her way. She stepped out in a shorter black dress. This one was sewn by Satan. It was cut like a skater dress with another heart shape front; propping up her bosom. It was unsuccessfully hidden behind a thin veil of mesh. When she turned we found it was open backed in the shape of a long and lace diamond. Black stilettos were the cherry atop this wicked Sunday and in my head I screamed like a teenage girl seeing a spider. That dress was going to be my friggin demise if she wore it out.               Mandy”
Nicole Strycharz, The Divorce

“I drove pretty scarily trying to keep up but not be seen. Todd held onto the bar above his door like we were jeeping through Africa”
