Guest Blog: Liz Borino

In her first blog, Liz wrote a letter to her characters from Expectations. This week, in honor of her new release What Money Can’t Buy, the boys have written her a letter back! Enjoy!

Dear Liz,

We wanted to respond to your letter. Do you really need to be told why we talk when we do? Yes? Alright, we’ll tell you. We talk when we do because it’s fun. You wanna torture us with curling irons, booze, injuries, and sexy nurses? Then, we will interrupt the five minutes of peace you get in the shower. We want you to be thinking us while you’re editing other author. Why? We’re all about preventing homicide. Think about it, if you couldn’t distract yourself by playing with us, how crazy would you go with deleting the word ‘that’ for the thousandth time? Exactly.

Now, do you know why you think about us during sex? Silly question everyone knows you can’t leave anything alone. We almost didn’t address this, but since you made such a big deal of it… If you’re able to think about us during sex, someone is doing something wrong. That’s like looking at the damn clock. But, if it makes happy then we’ll keep talking.

That’s what this is all about for us. We love you as much as you love us. Telling our story makes you happy. You feel like you’re contributing something to the world. And you are, even if it’s only a few hours/days escape. Maybe it’s something bigger though. Maybe it’s giving people a new way to look at a situation. And isn’t that worth getting distracted for?

Love always,
Your Boys (Matt, Chris, and Aiden)

Synopsis: EXPECTATIONS depicts the struggle between what we desire for ourselves and our familial obligations. The struggle is personified by Chris and Matt Taylor, identical twins, who are trying to win their overbearing father’s approval and acquire their trust funds.
