When I first started writing about Liam, I wanted to use young Lucas Till, simply because I thought he was so gorgeous that he had to be in one of my books… So I created Liam to fit the muse (blonde hair, blue eyes…) but, as I got to meet my character up close, I realized his youth, vulnerability, and innocence didn’t really match Luca’s years of MacGyver that kept coming to mind… So, living him aside for a future book, I focused on the character’s traits and personality and found my muse based on him and not the other way around. When I first saw Justin, I thought I was meeting the Liam in my head up to last detail… But thank God I’m not writing a comedy because I swear this guy NEVER smiles in public!
