In book two of What Was Everything: Nick Bignanni and Annabel LaFrance believe they are destined to be together, and after overcoming some difficult setbacks, they think they have finally found a way to make it work—without any interference from the outside world.

They were wrong.

Nick is still keeping secrets and battling his own personal demons as he tries desperately to protect Annabel from her own brother—his roommate and former best friend Michael LaFrance—who is unraveling more and more each day with devious intentions and a sinister plan.

Annabel has vowed to accept Nick, flaws and all, and is determined to do whatever possible to keep their relationship moving forward. But she had no idea of the depth of deception running beneath the surface of all that she believes to be true about Nick. And when she turns to her best friend, Brooks, for support, she finds out that he has a deep dark secret of his own.

As secrets are exposed, and trust is broken, all four of their lives become intertwined in a profound and twisted way that will change everything. Betrayal and lies and dysfunctional family ties ultimately set into motion a deadly chain of events from which someone will not escape—altering the lives of all of them forever.

If everything they thought they had, never actually existed—where does that leave them now? What happens when what was everything is no longer anything? Can love truly conquer all?

In book three the final installment of What Was Everything: Four years had passed since Annabel LaFrance last saw Nick Bignanni. Four long years of trying to get over him and moving on with her life - the same life he had saved - but the same life he had destroyed, too. She’d been certain that he was The One, and he’d told her he loved her and felt the same way. But he’d been lying to her from the beginning - about everything. He ended up leaving her, and then the unthinkable happened, and he’d been sent away, ultimately choosing to cut off all contact with her. He’d simply shut her out of his life completely. For four long years.

Now, he was back—watching her, waiting for her, wanting to apologize and tell her the truth about everything, promising that he had changed and asked for another chance. She knew trusting him again would not be easy, and there were more disturbing revelations and some additional mountainous obstacles to be overcome if their relationship was ever going to work. And the Universe always seemed to be working against them.

Ultimately, Annabel has to decide if she’s willing to risk giving Nick another chance, which would also mean giving him the power to destroy her once again. She wants nothing more than to put their past away and focus on a future with him. But sometimes that’s easier said than done, especially when they would be facing another uphill battle.

And sometimes, it’s just too late for true love...

In book one of What Was Everything: Nick Bignanni was somebody—and then he was nobody. By the time he was in high school, he still loved his father but hated his alcoholism, and he loved his mother (more) but resented her for her alcoholism—and infidelities, all of which culminated in him entering into a toxic, drug and sex fueled relationship with a girl named Beth. He was only nineteen when all three of them were ripped away from him in just one night. He had wanted to die, too—and much of his family and many of his “friends” probably felt the same way. But his grandfather had given him a second chance, offering to finance his return to Blue Ivy University and his fraternity Alpha Lambda Lambda, while his fate was yet to be determined by the law—as long as he stayed clean.

It was at the fraternity where he met Michael LaFrance, who instantly became his best friend and roommate. Though they were very different in many ways, they had one major thing in common: an insatiable appetite for women and sex. And both of them were so good-looking (in very different ways, however) that they attracted enough women to last a lifetime—and there was never a thought of serious relationships with any of them. That is, until Michael’s sister Annabel came to Blue Ivy as an eighteen-year-old freshman. Nick had met her once when she was sixteen and it’d been like seeing a ghost; there had been instant attraction, but she was obviously forbidden fruit. And now two years later, she was back—all grown up and undeniably beautiful—and the attraction was stronger than ever. But while he was bent on having her, her brother and mother and seemingly the Universe were bent on keeping her away.

Annabel LaFrance was a privileged, preppy, intelligent, inexperienced girl who just so happened to have a male best friend—which kept most boys from even approaching her. Well, that and the fact that she was what Mother called “chubby”. By the time she was in high school, she’d tried almost every weight loss product and program available to mankind, to no avail. Losing weight seemed like her whole life’s mission…until one night at her brother’s fraternity when she was sixteen that changed the course of her life. It was there that she met her brother’s new best friend and roommate Nick Bignanni. He was everything she thought she would never want in a boy—a long haired, scruffy faced, flannel shirt and combat boot wearing, motorcycle driving older man. He was nineteen and she was instantly mesmerized by the way he looked at her with his hypnotic hazel eyes. There was a connection between them, she was sure, but it ended when the night ended—though it lived on in her fantasies throughout high school.

She was eighteen when she arrived back at Blue Ivy as a freshman, happy that her best friend Brooks had chosen also to take advantage of the University’s renowned Creative Arts and Writing Program—and very much looking forward to a reunion with Nick Bignanni, something she’d been fantasizing about for years. But when she does see him again, he is in a compromising position with a Barbie Doll blonde, and she is devastated…but still hopeful. When she and Nick finally do share a “moment” together, Michael makes it perfectly clear that any kind of relationship between them is forbidden. However, as fate would have it, they end up having a class together, and the fiery connection between them grows stronger and stronger—leading eventually to an all-consuming desire that they can no longer deny. But the bond between them could possibly change everything, for everyone.
