Author Taylor Marsh believes the perfect relationship is an equal-power prospect. And that the only control over you that a man has is the power you give him. It begins with an independent woman not knowing what she wants. In that surrendered power is the failure of most modern relationships. Taylor takes the reader on an adventure into relationships, and how she crafted her fictional female characters. What makes Taylor's female characters badass women? The women take big risks, sometimes fail, but they never give up. Their careers matter as much to them as having a great relationship. The foundation of Taylor's fiction is the relationship the woman chooses, which depends on a man strong and smart enough to prefer badass women.
