Did having read the Behind the Lives series help with understanding the Broken Lives series? Broken Lives is a spin-off from Behind the Lives.
JAGGED PILL was the hardest to write out of all of these books in the sense that I had to align it with the Behind the Lives series. The huge time jump, putting Dante where he needs to be to continue on from where Behind the Secrets left off, as well as explaining why he doesn't remember things, etc. LOVE STONED (Broken Lives #4) will basically continue what came after BEHIND THE SECRETS (and of course JAGGED PILL, a smooth transition), but be fully focused on Dante and Clara. No other POVs, just theirs.
