Alexa Morgan lost her mother when she was two. At eighteen, her father and stepmother died when a devastating earthquake hit the Bay Area. Only one person has remained a constant in her life: Devin.

Devin has been Alexa’s best friend since childhood. The two are inseparable—or they were until Devin declared his love for her at sixteen. When Alexa can offer him only friendship in return, Devin retreats, brokenhearted.
Alexa, on the other hand, longs for Ethan, the boy next door. Four years older than her, and with an ever-changing roster of girlfriends, Ethan is everything Devin isn’t: wild, sensual, and unpredictable.

In the aftermath of the deadly earthquake, Ethan makes his move on Alexa, who reciprocates in a confused whirl of grief and desire. When Ethan leaves town shortly after, Devin comes back into Alexa’s life, offering support and expecting nothing in return.

Alexa begins to see the advantages of Devin’s quiet, stable love. But just as her feelings for her old friend begin to blossom, Ethan returns. Now Alexa must choose—the perfect boyfriend or the wild, thrilling bad boy. It’s a choice that changes her life forever.



Alexa was at a pretty great point in her life getting into her choice of college, doing great in school, had friends and loving parents. Then one day a earthquake shook up hear world and took her parents from her. Seeking some comfort she spends the night with the next door neighbor she's been crushing on for many years, who up and left her the next morning. Then her best friend Devon shows up to comfort her. She knows he loves her but can't help but turn to him when everything goes down.

Overall I thought that this book was pretty good. I felt like a lot of the beginning was just fluff to add to the book. Then I realized it was great to have that view of just how loving and caring and how much her parents ment to her and how devastated she would be when it call came crashing down.What really got me curious about this book though is towards that ending, what was her father really into? what is with Olivia? Did he have another sibling? I mean it really isn't much a question to ask but it was mentioned before and I'm very curious of whats going on there. I love to get Ethan's POV like in the Epilogue to see what was up to him. What was going with the whole babysitting - Wait ... Is that a spoiler? I don't want to spoil the book for you readers out there, I feel like it would be a spoiler if I finish that. Or if I ask any more questions.There is quite a bit of things going on that left me wanting more and curious to see what is going to happen in the next book. Can't wait to see when it comes out.

Author Bio:

T.R. Cupak was born and raised in the suburbs of a Bay Area city in California. She was the closet nerd who hid her love of reading and writing short stories and poetry when she was younger. Back then it wasn’t considered cool to be into those types of activities for pleasure, whereas today you have TV shows, movies and books that glamourize that being a nerd is actually cool.

T. lives in a quiet, little, country town south of where she grew up. She is happily married to an amazing man who supports her in everything she does and spoils her rotten. They have a crazy little Shih Tzu named Harley. He's their fur-baby and even though he’s a pain in the arse most days, they love the little guy. She has an obsession with cars, especially fast ones. She enjoys her music louder than anyone should. Admittedly it’s to drown out hearing her own singing voice, or lack thereof. When she’s not at work or busy writing you can find her curled up reading a book on her Kindle with a glass of wine or Dirty Shirley.

T. lost touch with her creative side and stepped off the path of all things written in her early twenties. Six years ago, her passion for reading was rekindled. She began to utilize reading as a way to escape everyday chaos. Late 2013 she began journal writing. After a couple of months of journaling T. realized that this form of writing wasn't keeping her interest nor was it helping her to relax. After that realization settled in she changed the direction of her writing. Her creative aspirations were flowing once again and she happily embraced it. As her fingers started to dance across her keyboard she began to see her fictional characters begin to breathe life. Writing was only supposed to be a way for the new author to relax, but a story was born and T.R. Cupak is excited to be releasing her self-published debut novel, Alexa Crushed.
