A Glimpse into writing Breaking Point by Susan Hayes

 Breaking Point 
by Susan Hayes

At the author chat, Susan shared with us a few comments about this title.  It was originally titled Lexa's Breaking Point, "because that's what this whole story was about... one woman pushed to her limits."  As her characters evolved, she realized it applied to the guys too.  "The meaning ended up including not just her trials, but the fact that she had two men who loved her for years and years, they never broke."

Susan also shared the best and worst part of writing:  "The best part? Seeing a story take shape and then have other people read it and "get it". Worst part: When it's 3 am and you can't sleep because the story isn't flowing and you can't make it work." She told us that her ideal characters to write were "Women who have had to live real lives, grieved and fought and worn shoes that hurt their feet."

Blurb for Breaking Point

Lexa Fox lost her childhood the day her mother took her and fled Sunset Point. Twenty-three years later, she’s returning to claim her inheritance from a father she barely remembers, in a place she doesn’t belong.
Detectives Beau Rivers and Diego Mendez grew up in ménage families and always knew they’d be a trio if they could find the right woman. They’d found her once, but fate took her out of their lives long before they were old enough to stake their claim. No woman since has ever managed to live up to their memories of Lexa, so when fate brings their childhood sweetheart back into their lives, they do everything they can to convince their gray-eyed, world-weary beauty to stay.
There are dangers to be faced and enemies to overcome, but in the end it’s up to her men to show her that some hearts never give up hope, and some loves have no Breaking Point.
