STRADDLING THE EDGE (Against the Wall, #3) blurb:
Summer McGallian … the scandalous home wrecker from Against the Wall and Between The Sheets. The one who stole her co-worker’s fiancé, the other woman, the one people whisper about and stay away from. Only for Summer, things aren’t always as they appear and she knows that better than anyone. She hasn’t been herself since she was in high school, when life was less complicated and relationships weren’t about making compromises to land the guy. When her heart is broken, there’s only one thing left for her to do … prove she isn’t who everyone thinks she is. And maybe, just maybe, she can get back to being comfortable in her own skin again, without input from a man. But when she encounters Sexy Guy, Dean Michaels, everything Summer has ever known about the opposite sex is about to change.
Dean Michaels knew he’d seen her somewhere before. What he never imagined was that the gorgeous woman in a baseball cap and hooded sweatshirt tossing back a beer in his favorite spot could be Summer McGallian—the woman who always looked like she’d stepped off the pages of a glamour magazine when he’d seen her from afar at work. And to make matters worse, she’s Chase Marino’s ex, the one guy who gets under his skin like no other. If the thought of being someone’s bitch in jail wasn’t enough to scare him, he would’ve strangled that bastard years ago and tossed the body in the Mojave Desert. But forget about Chase … Dean knew from the moment he saw Summer’s sexy smile and heard her cute laugh, she had to be his. And he won’t let anything get in the way of that.
The Against The Wall series isn’t just about steamy sex scenes and swoon-worthy romance, but about new friendships, undying love, and a ton of laughter. Enjoy the ride as you get to know and love Summer and Dean, just as you did Shelly and Matt, and Melissa and Tyler, in the final book, Straddling The Edge.
1) How did your current book come about?
In the previous two books in the series, Summer was with a total douche bag. I felt bad for her and didn’t want her to be stuck with him. I also thought it would be fun to turn the most hated character into someone we could all love.
2) Now this is part of a series. When you started the first book, did you plan on writing it as a series, or did it just grow into one?
It definitely grew into a series. I had no idea that the brother and best friend from the first book would end up together so it was a total no-brainer to give them a book of their own.
3) Do you have a method for creating your characters, their names and what do you think makes them believable?
I start with a general idea of what they would look like. Then, I find a celebrity photo to help complete the description. From there, they characters evolve as I write them. I usually name my characters after friends, family, and sometimes, readers. 😀
4) What one person alive today would make you geek out if they emailed you to tell you that they absolutely loved your book?
It’s a toss-up, but I have to go with Ryan Seacrest. Haha! The mom in my YA series (Double Threat) is obsessed with him and NKOTB. I’m not saying she’s based on anyone in particular, but if he read any of my books, I’d probably run around my house screaming. I’m tempted to audition for American Idol just so I can hug him. LOL!
5) If you could be any character in fiction, whom would you be and why?
I’d be Jenna Riley from Taking A Shot by Jaci Burton. That woman is surrounded by hunky men, not to mention her stud of a hockey player. She is spunky and strong, and owns a bar. And she has an amazing family who loves and adores everyone around.
