Subject to Change by Alessandra Thomas

Paperback, 300 pages

Published June 25th 2013

Age Group: New Adult
Series: Picturing Perfect #2


Joey made her dad a deathbed promise that she would become a doctor, and dedicate herself

to fighting the very cancer that took his life. There’s just one problem -three years into her pre-med classes, she’s struggling to stay on top of the curve, let alone prove she’s dazzling enough to earn a spot in an Ivy League medical school. In a Hail Mary move, she throws a basic Business 101 class into her semester schedule, banking on a perfect score to boost her GPA.

That is, until she’s paired for a final project with Hawk, the bartending, motorbike-riding, gorgeously bedheaded loser who falls asleep in class and communicates in one-word sentences.
Hawk does whatever he wants, whenever he wants, which sets Joey on edge – in every possible way. As they get to know each other, her urge to scream at him is curbed only by her fantasies of tearing his clothes off. Soon those fantasies become reality, and Joey realizes Hawk makes her feel more fully herself than any of the rich boys her mother and sorority sisters approve of.
But the promise to her father hangs over her head, and the harder Joey tries to succeed in her chosen career, the faster everything falls into a hopeless tailspin of bad grades, broken promises and guilt. It doesn’t help to have Hawk sitting like a devil on her shoulder, insisting she should be free to live however she wants to live – like he does.
The only thing Joey knows is that her neatly organized life is crushing her – and Hawk’s bad attitude might be the only thing that can save her.

Hi Michelle!  Thank you so much for inviting me over for an interview today! I’m so excited to be here. 
::Waves:: Thanks for stopping by Book Briefs 🙂
1.     Describe subject to change in a tweet (140 characters or less)
Joey lives her life according to plan…until bad boy Hawk comes along and shows her that her plan is killing her chance to truly live.
2.     Which of your characters do you relate to the most and why?
I definitely relate to Joey the most. I’ve been in the situation of feeling like I was “Supposed to be” something so many times – in my relationships, in my career, etc. It can be crushing to feel like you should be doing something or acting in some way that doesn’t feel true to yourself, but also feel like there’s no way out.
3.     Where do you get your inspiration for characters or your stories?
I remember college very vividly – all the parties, all the tough decisions, all the angst. I’m so grateful for that, as a New Adult writer. I also have a small group of target audience readers who are always giving me feedback on concepts, characters, and plot. I want my books to ring true for readers who are the same age as my characters.
4.     If you could go on vacation anywhere right now, where would you go?
Hawaii! The heat, the vibrant landscapes, the ocean, the cabana boys bringing you drinks! What bliss!
5.     What are some of your pet peeves (writing or general)
I hate it when people act like there’s only one right way to do something. That applies to writing AND real life. LOL.
6.     What do you do when you have writers block?
I wish I could say I had a reasonable method for dealing, but honestly, I just stare at my computer, hate myself, and eat munchies until it passes. It’s horrible.
7.     If we were to look under your bed right now, what would we find?
A bunch of lingerie and an electric blanket. *wink*

    The storyline gave me pause. My son is currently in college and I am sure hoping his choices are to make him happy and not what will please his father and I. Thank you for sharing with us, I am looking forward to the read.
