About the Author

Bestselling Author of the Beautiful Series, Drawn and 47 Things, Lilliana has always loved to read and write, considering it the best form of escapism that the world has to offer. Australian born and bred, she writes New Adult Romance revolving around her authentically Aussie characters with all the quirks you’d expect from those born Down Under. Lilliana feels that the world should see Australia for more than just it's outback and tries to show characters in a city and suburban setting. When she isn't writing, she wears the hat of 'wife and mother' to her husband and five children. Before Lilliana turned to writing, she worked in a variety of industries and studied humanities and communications before transferring to commerce/law at university. Originally from Sydney's Western suburbs, she currently lives a fairly quiet life in suburban Melbourne.

This book is a prequel to Beautiful Struggle and since I have the box set, I read this first. I think it sets up the story nicely. We are introduced to David and Katrina and are shown how special their relationship is. Looking forward to seeing how things pan out in the series.

3.5 stars:  TOO CLOSE is a prequel novella to Lilliana Anderson’s Beautiful series told from David’s POV. The reader is taken on a journey that begins when David and Katrina first met, through their years together in elementary and high school, and David’s growing love for the young woman he has always wanted to call his own. His need to protect Trina at all costs forces a wall between the friends who are too close and often mistaken for a couple. The reader discovers that David believes himself unworthy of a loving relationship and the only woman he has ever loved sees something different. His father was and is a major disappointment and harsh words from a parent have left emotional scars on David’s ego. Although he considers himself non-relationship material, he has been in a life long relationship with his best friend Katrina and the woman that he loves-only David and Katrina are too stubborn to admit that what each other wants and needs-is to be in a relationship with the other. The story follows David and Trina’s relationships with other people; their ups and downs; their sorrow and heartbreak. But all along, David knows that the only woman for him is Trina but telling her is more difficult than he ever thought. In the end, it may be too late, when Trina’s life and safety hang in the balance and she begins to push everyone away including David. Too Close is a short story that covers a few of the high and low points in David and Trina’s early relationship and allows the reader to get inside the mind of a man who loves the one woman of whom he believes he is unworthy. The writing is simple and because most of the ‘drama’ in their early relationship occurs during their high school years, the story reads like a young adult novel with all the hallmarks of jealousy, angst, mistaken beliefs and broken hearts. And like many stories from the New Adult genre, there is always a history between the couple that must be acknowledged before any chance at future happiness can be addressed.
