Meet Penelope Caruso-Byrne. You may not have heard of her, but you’ve probably heard her voice. That scene from your favorite TV show that made you ugly cry? Yep, that was her on the soundtrack. She’s living the dream. Intelligent, gorgeous and making a living doing what she loves in an indie folk duo with her rock of a hipster husband, Seth. So when she’s offered the most ridiculous sell out opportunity of a lifetime by the world’s biggest pop star, Marc Justin, the answer is easy. Right? Set in the never dull music industry THE BIG IF takes a deeper look at that gray space in love where compromise crosses the line. Can Penelope have her dreams and desires satisfied without shattering culturally created boundaries? She does call herself an adventuress, after all. If choosing her own path means losing stability and comfort, not to mention love, will this adventuress have the courage to throw expectatins aside and follow her heart?
Jenna Jax-Anders hit rock bottom in high school, or so she thought. From rock star heiress to knocked-up has been, she turned it all rying the punk rock baby daddy love of her life. The perfect Hollywood fairytale. Until the day she walked in on him kissing her best friend.
As she struggles to find herself and redefine the world around her, she faces the challenges of raising her over-achieving teenage daughter, the heartbreak of losing her best friend (backstabbing aside), and emerging from the shadows of two famous last names to find her own identity. Oh, there’s also the tiny issue of her husband’s record label, backed by an anonymous mogul whose morally ambiguous creative direction may ruin them all. But she doesn’t know about that yet.
