-How did you come up with the idea for this story?
I had the idea for a cosplay sex tape story around the time that I was writing At Any Price and I was dying to get to it. I love taking weird set ups and giving them a geeky spin. I knew I was going to have to wait a few books (because Adam and Mia’s story became a trilogy) before I could write it. When the character of Jordan became fully formed in book 2 of the trilogy, I thought it would be a fantastic set up to put him in so he could learn a lesson about his player ways!
-Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
There is a lot of ground covered in this latest novel—namely sexual equality in the workplace, how women treat other women with regards to their sexuality and issues like slut shaming. The novel explores the nature of power and equality in a sexual relationship as well as the nature of that power balance at the office.
-Will you write more about these characters?
I definitely think there is more in store for Jordan and April. Some threads were left open to explore in future books as a secondary storyline, but I think Jordan and April may get another book. They were so much fun to write—their chemistry is explosive and the tension between them electric. Most especially, I loved their banter. They got high marks from me in the banter department!
-What is for you the perfect book hero?
He’s sexy, strong, intelligent and deep. He’s handsome, perceptive and very, very much into his heroine.
-Tell us something that people would be surprised you know how to do.
I speak fluent French as a self-confessed Francophile. I try to use it every chance I can get.
That molten-hot intern he hooked up with at Comic-Con is now his assistant. No one can know they’re the stars of the cosplay sex tape that broke the Internet.
Business school hopeful April Weiss has drama. Big drama.
Working under the CFO of Draco Multimedia should be the opportunity of a lifetime for her, but Jordan Fawkes is the boss from Hell—a sexier-than-sin boss from Hell who holds all the cards for her future career.
And then there’s the small problem of a certain video…
Jordan glanced around and then looked at me, eyes wide. “What the hell was that about?”
I turned my head away from him, quickly brushing tears away with the back of my hand. “That was about getting the hell away from you. Too bad you can’t take a hint.”
His eyes narrowed as he watched me, then his thumb brushed across my cheek as if to verify what he was seeing. “Are you crying?”
I gave a sniff and jerked my head away. “No. Go away now.”
He ignored me, of course. “What’s going on, Weiss? Did that bartender say something to you? I’ll go fuck him up.”
“No. I’m fine. He was nice. Nicer than any other guy I’ve talked to in months.”
He didn’t say anything in reply, just scowled. If possible, he looked even hotter when he scowled—it was an intense sort of look, with his eyes narrowing like darts that could punch a holeright through me. Then he cleared his throat and looked away. He pulled a bar napkin from his back pocket and handed it to me.
I took it without a word, blotted tears from my cheeks and blew my nose. “How much have you had to drink?” he asked quietly.
“No alcohol. I do stupid shit when I drink.”
He frowned. “So what’s with the crying then?”
I shrugged. “You’re my boss, not my psychotherapist.”
“Are you going home with that bartender?”
“Is that any of your business?”
He moved in close, standing right in front of me, bracing a hand on the wall above my head. My heart hammered in my chest. He ran a finger along the line of my jaw, giving me that intense look again. His Adam’s apple bobbed as he visibly swallowed.
“I’m making it my business.” Then his finger slipped down the column of my throat, over my collarbone and right to the deep cleavage of my neckline. Where his finger traced my skin, his touch burned. I felt it clear down to my bones. My chest squeezed tight. I couldn’t breathe. He pissed me off and turned me on like no other man could. I froze as his head dipped so that his lips were mere millimeters from mine. I could feel his breath on my face. And I didn’t smell alcohol like I’d expected to.
“You’re a good girl, April Weiss. And those are the worst kind.”
