Hi, y'all! Today I have a special guest for you, author Brooklyn Skye. : )
I'm trying out a new interview format for when I have guests on the blog because I'm slightly obsessed with hearing what other people are reading, watching, and loving right now. So let me know what you think of the 3 Awesome Things Interview and if you'd like to see more of that from future guests!
So read on to see what Brooklyn is recommending to us and then scroll down for an excerpt from her new book, A Moment of Madness!
The Three Awesome Things Interview with Brooklyn Skye
1. The book you think everyone should read and why
This is an easy one! My all-time favorite book is Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover and for one teeny-tiny reason… The sexual tension is off the charts! Colleen has always been one of my favorite authors, but by far Ugly Love is her best book written to date.
2. The movie or TV show you think everyone should watch and why
While it was out like ten years ago, I never watched the Friday Night Lights series (on Netflix) until recently, and can I just say “Tim Riggins”? I don’t know what it was about him (okay…yes, I do LOL), but aside from his good looks, Taylor Kitsch played such a multi-layered character on that show. Definitely worth the hours of binge watching!
3. What you can’t live without right now
Have any of you tried barre? It’s a type of exercise (offered at many gyms, I’m now finding out) that involves isometric contractions (seriously though…I had to look that up because when I think of how to describe barre I sound like a ten-year-old: You hold onto this bar and move your legs up and down, haha!) It’s insanely hard, despite my elementary description, and a great way to get rid of my stresses from the day. If you belong to a gym that offers a barre class, I highly suggest trying it out.
About the book:
Sailor Carlson comes back to Boston to make amends with her dad, only to find he passed away, and his bar, the Alibi, now belongs to a bearded, grumpy hottie. Mr. Hottie liked her enough for a night of nameless sex on the kitchen counter, but he wants nothing to do with her now he knows who she is.
Ryan Edwards has been running the Alibi for seven years. Being in a bar night after night means he’s no stranger to one-night stands. But when the quirky, beautiful blonde he spent a hot night with shows up at his bar claiming it used to belong to her father, his guard goes right up.
Ryan’s desperate for a waitress, and Sailor wants a chance to work in the place that meant so much to her dad. If only the tenuous trust they establish were as strong as the pesky attraction simmering between them.
The door chimed, and a small fuzzy dog entered, followed by a slender frame encased entirely in black. Ryan’s cock jumped to attention—damn the way her body had felt beneath him, surrounding him…all over him.
He leaned into the bar, using the pressure to erase the memory, and pointed to what was at Sailor’s feet. “What the fuck is that?”
Sailor squinted at her feet and then back up. “This is Drexel. My dog.” A tight laugh tittered out of her. “I mean, obviously he’s my dog.”
“Why the hell is he here? In my bar? When you’re supposed to be working?”
“Yeah, about that. I had a slight problem at home with a mouse and my favorite fruit bowl and Drex. Glass was everywhere, and my cousin’s kennel is full, so I had to bring him.”
“That makes absolutely no sense.”
“I know.” She stopped inside the door, lifting a forcedlooking smile. “It’s kind of a long story.”
The dog sprinted forward and choked when the leash lost slack. Then he spun with a growl and chomped down on the leash, swinging his head back and forth.
Ryan stared blankly. “What do you plan on doing with him?”
“Well, he’s really good, so—”
Ryan lifted a brow. Hadn’t she said her dog was bad the other night?
“Okay, so maybe really good is pushing it.” She tugged the leash and whispered to the dog, “Drex, you’re not really helping your case here.” Glancing back to Ryan, she inhaled a breath and blew it out. “But he’s just a puppy, and he doesn’t mean any harm. I’ll keep him tied up behind the bar, and I promise I won’t let him get in the way of business. You won’t even know he’s here.” Just as her last word reached his ears, the dog lifted his leg and a stream of yellow shot out to the base of a table.
Sailor shrieked. Ryan shook his head. What the hell had he gotten himself into?
Thanks for stopping by, Brooklyn!
