About the Book

In Ronnie Billings’ dystopian world, surviving the Letting and breaking free of a corrupt government is less of a surprise than falling in love with Phoenix Day, the leader of the Peaceful Revolution…
When the government sentences Ronnie to a Coupling under the guise of producing a coveted blood type, Ronnie discovers the one she’s slated to Couple with expects even more.
Prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice to save those she loves most, Ronnie devastates Phoenix with her impossible decision. Whisked away from her rebel life to another world ravaged by despair, Ronnie meets her greatest nemesis...her biological father.
Steeling her nerves against the dangers of escape, she embarks on the perilous journey back. She is convinced she belongs with Phoenix and his revolution, but will her friends, and especially Phoenix, be ready to accept her when she returns? Because this time, evil is in her blood...

It’s been awhile since reading The Letting and when I learned I would have the opportunity to read the sequel I was more than excited to get my hands on it. Unfortunately my excited for some of the characters waned unexpectedly, fortunately my newfound annoyance didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the overall story. The Coupling picks up where The Letting left off and the revolution is still happening, but things are not going exactly the way anyone expects it to.

...Even if this is all the happiness we are everallowed, it will be enough.

Veronica “Ronie” Billings, former head leader of her camp and a major unknowing contributor to the Lettings. I’m not sure if I overlooked it previously, but she almost ruined the book for me.The consistent whining and sobbing, I couldn’t take her. Her obsessive need to save everyone was exhausing. It was obvious she was blind to the fact she was actually putting the people that care about her in more danger. Honestly, they need to be saved from her saving them.

“I didn’t marry you so I could win. I married you because I love you”

One of the few unexpected yet appreciated things was my view on Farnworth. His position is not just black and white and dare I say I believe he had some redeemable qualities. Looking back I kind of wish he came up more during the story.

“You should have trusted me . Trusted us.”

It was absolutely mind blowing how much of a trainwreck Ronie and Phoenix relationship continues to be. The communication and trust is basically non-existent. At times their emotions stood in the way of their ultimate goal. Even with their world falling apart around them I don’t think that it should be too difficult to be together.

Overall I still enjoyed reading The Coupling the continued suspense and agnst kept me on edge. Truthfully I will be anticipating the next installment of this series whenever that may be, I will give it my full attention.

About the Author

Given my love for cities and all that is gritty, my new obsession with trees really has me stumped. (Sorry.) Maybe it's because trees are the inspiration behind my new YA/NA novel, THE LETTING.

Whatever the reason for my new infatuation, some things remain constant -- like my love for: coffee (although sadly, it's now decaf); yoga; Luna bars (I am petitioning for them to bring back Chocolate Raspberry!); running in my neighborhood; Hemingway; Bukowski... and, above all, my husband and my girls.

I am the author of the bestselling novel, Sleeping With Mortals: The Story of a New York Mistress, and I'm also a playwright. I have my B.A. in English and my M.A. in Theatre.
