Author Mel Curtis is releasing a hot new novella in The Hollywood Rules series, Breaking the Rules. We’ve met the Rule siblings – Amber, Blue, Cora, and Gemma (and we’ll meet the unknown Daisy in the future!). Now we’re going to find out the story of fave supporting characters Jack and Viv.
Let’s get The Story Behind the Story of Breaking the Rules, straight from the author, Mel Curtis.
I’ve been writing books in The Hollywood Rules series for a couple of years now. From the very first book an estranged couple showed up – Jack and Viv Gordon. Here was a couple that through three books and a novella clearly loved each other (when they weren’t being out of control), but couldn’t seem to work their problems out. I’m sure you’ve known couples like this and wondered what the problem was. You’ll find out more about why their marriage broke up, and why they’re destined to be together when they go about Breaking the Rules.
To say Jack and Vivian Gordon’s marriage has been rocky would be an understatement. The Gordons have been on a roller coaster of love and lust, but can’t seem to get on the same page at the same time. This power couple needs a time-out to find their happily ever after. And life coach to Hollywood’s rich and powerful, Cora Rule, has just the solution – have the couple sign their divorce papers in a safe room…and lock them inside.
Vivian Gordon had a problem.
A six-foot-two-inch hunk of a problem.
Sex with Jack hadn’t solved the problem. Marrying him hadn’t solved the problem. Leaving him hadn’t solved the problem.
The problem was that Viv loved her husband, but Jack didn’t love her.
It wasn’t as if Jack was incapable of love, as some of Hollywood moguls seemed to be. No, Jack had passion aplenty, but it was for the NBA team he owned, the L.A. Flash, not for a woman. Not for Viv.
Viv watched Jack swim his daily laps with strong, commanding strokes. Heaven forbid Jack didn’t get his laps in. If he didn’t, he was the biggest shit.
Her Gianvito Rossi black suede lace up heels clicked slowly across the white marble tile as she approached the patio doors in the house they’d once shared. Her cadence was one of a doomed prisoner being shown the open door of the gas chamber.
This is the end.
And she’d chosen the execution date.
