Numbers are everywhere—they play such a vital role in our everyday lives. But what would happen if we measured love with equations just as we do our morning cup of coffee? My nana had many recipes in her cupboards, but it was her calculations for love that she insisted I live my life by; and I’ve followed her rules all these years.

One Animal
One Moment
One Critical Impact

That’s all it took for the numbers to start flying in a jumbled mess through my brain as I stared into the violet eyes that would forever make me question my choices. In a split second, the possibilities and reality of true love are revealed and I’m questioning all I’ve ever known.

A Tree
White Fences
Stolen Moments

I can’t ignore the storm brewing around—and within—me. Everything I am is confronted by these new numbers, and all they represent. My past, present and future will all be determined by the gambles I make right here, right now. Again, it’s all about the numbers.

And what I’m learning is, one plus one doesn’t always equal two and sometimes three times isn’t always the charm

Here is an interesting character interview....

Mystery Man

I’m the guy Brielle met by accident. I can’t tell you my name, I can’t even tell you how we met, except that if I did, I would ruin the story for you. And you don’t want that. The thing is, from the second I met Brielle, I knew that she was the one I’d been waiting for my whole life. The one that every beat of my heart existed for. Corny, cheesy, I know, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s the truth. For me to meet her when I did though, was a twist of fate that makes me wonder what I’ve done to deserve this kind of punishment. To show me where I belong only to deny me being at her side.

She’s beautiful, in a girl next door kind of way, down to earth with everything she does. But even without that, I would still love her. I love her knowing that I can never be with her, not unless something drastic changes. Yet I’m not sure that anything ever will change, not without destroying the lives of too many people. So I will take what I can, a simple friendship that will barely be enough. Because every time I see her, my will power crumbles a little more, and I’m afraid that at some point, I won’t be able to say no to her.

To us.
