Bella Ricks has been living in a romantic comedy for as long as she can remember. In elementary school, she proposed to a classmate. He ran away.
In high school, a bully tried to cast her as his enemies-to-lovers heroine. She declined.
She took flirting lessons in college. But her tutor gave up and told her that her 'awkwardness was endearing.'
Then after living abroad and losing what remained of her social skills, she met her husband.
Their first kiss was a disaster. (I really was aiming for your cheek) A scheming ex tried to drive them apart but he wisely chose Bella.
Now, they are enjoying their HEA, as much as they can with five tiny barbarians waking them up at all hours of the night. Her husband gets up with them as often as she does and that's just one of the reasons why he's her muse.
