Failure to Launch

My schedule tab gets a lot of hits on the blog. But I've abandoned my schedule completely because my brain apparently can't follow it, and this story has been bugging me since I saw this picture of Misty Copeland.

Failure to Launch (working title maybe) is much, much tamer than AFC (not because of AFC, mind you. Sandrine's prequel is coming at some point and it will be just as crazy, just as out-of-control, just as violent and chock-full of moral ambiguity and really bad people, as is Fuel). But beware, though, if you know anything about me by now, it's fair to assume that FTL will NOT be an easy story LOL.

Anyway, here's the synopsis:

He’s the next big thing.

With more than fifty thousand people following his irreverent social media account and the popularity of his YouTube channel, Charlie Dara landed the opportunity of his dreams when a well-funded media company offered a production partnership. Everyone he knows thinks he's the luckiest guy in the world, but the way he's dealing with the mounting pressures of new-found fame is threatening to derail it all...

She was the next big thing.

Nikki Johnson lost dance and a coveted spot with the Los Angeles Ballet to alcohol two years ago. But with a supportive family and a successful rehabilitation program, she has crawled up from the shambles of that past life to chase new dreams. And avoid old habits...

A minor fender bender puts them on a collision course.  

A friendship grows quickly beneath a strong connection. An intense attraction quickly ignites into the kind of consuming passion most people only get to fantasize about. But her old struggles and his growing ones pose a threat to reality.

What happens when the one you crave the most is too dangerous for you? When what you desire might be your downfall?

Do you fight love? Or fight for it?
