BOOK CORNER: Couple tests their love in ‘Better off Friends’

Lust at first sight brought Ashlynn and Eli together; and with Ashlynn’s daughter they became a family. But when their respective wild pasts catch up to them, will it bring their happy ever after goals to a screeching halt?

Find out in “Better off Friends” by Inglewood native, Kristin Hurd.

Hurd was inspired to write this book following the success of her first book, “One of a Kind,” where the characters of Ashlynn and Eli also were featured.

“After writing my first book, I wanted to write more,” Hurd said. “I wanted to tell Eli’s story so I figured out a way to spin that.”

Eli is Hurd’s favorite character because of his relaxed personality and she wanted to create a book where she could tell his story. What the author enjoys most about this book is watching the two main characters realize what they really want out of a relationship.
