"A surprising mix of romance and adventure...highly recommended." ~ Midwest Book Review While most seventeen year-olds work part-time delivering pizzas or whipping up frappuccinos, Brady O’Connell’s job is a little less conventional. Helping his dad with the family ‘business’ is a responsibility he doesn’t take lightly, especially when thousands of dollars are being exchanged. There are rules to be followed, timetables to be kept. But when his best friend Jay gets backstage concert tickets, and business interferes with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet their favorite band, Brady decides to break the rules, just one time. And one time is all it takes to send his life spinning out of control. When an envelope full of cash ends up in the wrong hands—specifically in the hands of a pretty red-head named Vivienne—things get messy in a hurry. Where Vivienne goes, a whole lot of chaos seems to follow. But sometimes...chaos can be a beautiful thing. From the author of Hope for Garbage comes another fast-moving, emotionally-charged tale, full of plot twists that will keep you guessing, and true-to-life characters you will root for. Most of all, this is a story of first love—crazy, chaotic first love—love that hits us hard, and never lets go.

Alex Tully lives outside Cleveland with her husband, two teenagers, and a dog named Trooper. Fifteen years ago her life took a dramatic turn with a diagnosis of MS. She decided to quit her career as a finance professional and try something she truly loved - writing.
Her debut novel, Hope for Garbage, a coming-of-age story, was released in 2014 and her latest novel, Beautiful Chaos, was released in summer 2016. Both are filled with ordinary characters overcoming extraordinary circumstances, both are filled with the message of hope.
Her hope is that readers will smile after turning the last page.
She is hard at work on her third novel.
"A bit of a caper, full of snappy prose and situations as funny as they are suspenseful ... the characters remain winning throughout, and young readers will find a lot to like here." - Publishers Weekly BookLife Prize in Fiction
"Mature teens and new adults are brought along for an involving ride that moves well beyond a genre romance and into the realm of hijinks, adventure, and psychological understanding in a fun, thought-provoking read highly recommended for audiences seeking something different and more realistic than romance-tinged novels usually offer."
- D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
