Hi:) Mj O'Shea here! I wanted to share a character interview that I did a few months back.
It's something that followers of Babes in Boyland might have seen before:) but it continues to be one of my favorites. Back when Piper Vaughn and I were plotting out our Recent LooseId release The Luckiest, I filled out this questionnaire for our character Nick Ventura. He's a rock star, he's an ass, he's stuck in rehab and being a big baby about it:) We love him.
Both of us liked this so much, we used parts of it in the actual book...so if you've read The Luckiest some of this might look familiar.
Oh, btw. Nick has the mouth of a sailor. Be warned.

In case you were wondering, it's from this book:
Rock star Nick Ventura has finally hit rock bottom. Jealous of his brother’s new love, he starts overindulging in his usual vices and winds up crashing his car into a department store in a drunken haze. Publicly humiliated and on the verge of jail time, he enters into a court-ordered rehabilitation program.
Nutritionist Luka Novak is flamboyant, effeminate, the type of gay man that bisexual Nick would normally sneer at. His sunny nature hides a deep hurt from a previous relationship. Luka knows he should be wary of Nick’s reputation, but he’s drawn to Nick despite himself. Their tentative friendship turns into romance, but Luka soon comes to realize that Nick's fear of losing his bad boy reputation means he'll probably never go public with their relationship.
Nick never thought he needed anyone, until Luka Novak came into his life. Now he has to reconcile his carefree past with the future he suddenly wants more than anything. And the first lesson he has to learn is how to become the man that both he and Luka need him to be, rather than stay the boy he always was. Alone
