They both want Lily, but she faces the same problem you will: which one does she love more? Good luck in your quest to choose just one.
Description of Novel:
As a sexy ex-hockey player, Max was the bad boy with something to prove. As a handsome single father, Adam was the man most women wait a lifetime for. Each man would take me on a journey of self-discovery that was marred with lies, jealousy, deceit, and a whole lot of fun. They each offered a glimpse of happily ever after, a piece of perfect. But in my constant quest to have it all, I would risk losing everything. Only one thing was certain. I’d never be the same after this.
What's in a Name?
Adam, Max, and Lily weren't just random names we thought up. They are each symbolic in biblical terms. Even though Elizabeth and Hayley aren't very religious, Elizabeth did spend twelve years in Catholic school. Something was bound to stick.
Adam's name is clear in its symbolism. Adam was the first man, from whom the rest of the human race is supposedly descendant. As the prototypical man, Adam represents the supreme choice.
Max's last name is Samson. Samson is a biblical hero who was blessed with inhuman strength. It was ultimately his love and trust in a woman, Delilah, that forced him to break his vow to God, which brought about his ruin.
Lily's name has two meanings. First, it is meant to be reflective of a flower, which would have been present in the Garden of Eden. Eden is home to Adam. It gives him everything he needs, until he is cast away from it due to knowledge that he wasn't meant to have.
Lily's name is also short for Delilah, the woman who betrayed Samson by cutting off the source of his strength: his hair. This causes Samson to be captured, blinded, and enslaved. Though Samson ultimately regains his strength, and exacts revenge, he uses it to destroy the one he loves as well as himself.
