Sometimes the one who broke your heart, needs the most saving.
Piper Sandervale never thought she’d see Sasha Koval ever again. Not since he took her heart, ripped it out and obliterated it from existence. Now, six years have passed and she has run into him once more at the local fairgrounds in Las Vegas. He desperately wants another chance, and he’d do anything to get her back. She’s willing to give him a taste of his own medicine, if this is her chance for payback. But, will she find herself way in over her head?
Something has changed with Sasha and Piper struggles to justify the worth of past hurts to continue her quest for atonement.
Who needs saving now?
currently lives in Las Vegas, Nevada–Sin City! She loves to spend every free
moment writing or playing with her four rambunctious kids. Writing has always
been her dream and she has been writing ever since she can remember. She loves
writing paranormal fantasy and poetry and devours books daily. Alexia also
enjoys watching movies, dancing, singing loudly in the car and Italian food.
Music and writing go hand in hand. It’s the perfect partnership between two amazingly imaginative entities which can fuse into one epic product. I use playlists heavily in my writing and I’d love to share with you my playlist for Breathe Me, my new Contemporary Romance novel about second Chances, love, family and realizing your dreams.
Music helps me focus and gives me so much inspiration on how a novel should feel. When writing action scenes, I listen to fast paced, beat rich music such as R&B, Techno and Dance songs such as Don’t let Me Be Misunderstood by Santa Esmeralda, First of the Year by Skrillex, and music by Daft Funk . If I need a more romantic atmosphere, I switch it to more soft, low and sensual music such as: Stay by Rihanna and Forever Love by Anna Nalick. No song is perfect for every scene and my list is super long. I even have songs for the melancholy moments of life where characters need that broken and devastated feeling to convey them. For that, I use songs such as Breathe Me by Sia, Lies by Mariana and The Diamonds and Let it Go by Fauxliage.
I can’t write without music and I hope the emotional power of each song and tune comes out in my writing as much as I’d love it to.
Here is the playlist I used while writing Breathe Me, I hope you love it as much as I did.

My heart sped up thinking of the nights we’d spent together. Alone with him, I’d been in heaven, utterly lost to the world. Loving the way his fingertips had softly slid down my skin and sent goose bumps flaring throughout my body, it was searing and his scent, intoxicating. How do you get over someone like that? Especially after the day he turned me into a shadow in his midst, left in the cold, alone. It was no different than throwing me under the bus. At the time, it had left me empty, a hollowed mess that I had been left to clear away, bit by painful bit.
But I wasn’t eighteen anymore and definitely not that fragile, naïve and trusting girl I’d once been.
