About the Author
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.

Alexa Morgan is a teenager who is no stranger to loss. She lost her mother when she was three and then lost her father and step-mother when she was eighteen. But she has one person that has been there for her through everything. Devin is her best friend and also the boy next door until her family moves when she was twelve. Then you have a new boy next door, Ethan who is a few years older then she is. What happens when Devin declares his love for her when they are sixteen? What will happen to their friendship? She longs to be with Ethan. She has watched girl friends come and go for years. Ethan is everything that Devin is not, he is the bad boy type.
Find out what happens in the aftermath of the earthquake! Will Ethan declare her his? What happens when Devin shows up on her doorstep to show his support? Will she finally get what she has been wanting since she has been twelve? Who will she choose? The good stable life Devin or the bad boy Ethan? Her relationship with each of these two will have you shaking your head and asking what is wrong with this picture. In other parts they will have your heart breaking for her. How will she choose? Will she get over the friendship hang-up with these two guys? Find out what happens with these three as they pull you into their emotional world of young love and friendship!
This is my first story by T. Cupak and I know it will not be the last. I can't wait to read the second book in this series, I have to know what happens to these three! T. was born and raised in the Bay Area of California and currently lives in a small town south of where she grew up. She lives with her husband and spoiled Shih Tzu. She has an obsession with fast cars and loves music that is way to loud. This author has created a total page turner that will have you reading until the last page. Be prepared to lose track of time once you read the first word of this story. You will be pulled in from the first word and I highly suggest this story. I know that you will want to find out all the twists and turns these characters will go through as much as I did.

5 out of 5 stars
The story Alexa Crushed (Alexa Series Book 1) by T.R. Cupak is a contemporary romance book. I truly enjoyed reading this story. It tells the tale of Alexa Morgan who loses her parents during an earthquake in the Bay Area of California. She quickly finds out who is there to help her and who is there only for themselves. Alexa is about to graduate and has just found out the college she has been accepted to. In the span of the next 24 hours, she finds out her parents are dead and that her life will never be the same. In Alexa’s life, there have been two guys that she has been drawn to but in different ways. First is Devin, he has been her best friend and companion since they were children and then there is Ethan, the boy next door who caught Alexa’s eye when she is twelve and is the constant player. Even when Alexa sees that Ethan goes out with a lot of different women she still is drawn to him. So when she is grieving and alone she turns to him for comfort. Then the next day he is gone. In walks Devin. He is offering Alexa support and not expecting anything in return. Will Alexa be able to get past what has happened with Ethan to finally let Devin into her heart?
I really enjoyed the characters of Alexa and Devin. They are best friends during childhood, inseparable. Then Devin confesses his love for Alexa. This leads to an awkward moment and they have not talked to each other for two years. Even so, Devin still rushes to Alexa’s side once he hears about her parent's death and wants to be there for her no matter what. There are also a couple of characters in this story that you begin to wonder about just who they really are and why they act the way they do. It creates a bit of mystery in the book. As I was reading this story I couldn’t help but think of how I would react if both of my parents died and I had to go on without them. Another reason that I enjoyed this book is that it is set in the Bay Area of California. I grew up in one of the cities that is referenced to. As this book is part of a series I can’t wait to read the next one. This story does have mature themes and adult situations. It would be recommended for a mature audience.
