Play. Or be played.
The music should be enough. End of story. But Aaron Major is finding out it's not, and now his agent has hired a firm of suits to help launch his debut album, turning his life into a goddamn circus. Smile here. Play there. Be nice. Well, screw that. If Aaron wanted to spend his time shaking hands and kissing babies, he would've gone into politics.
Helping launch the career of country singer Aaron Major should be a cakewalk for PR pro Melody Sharp. Aaron is charming, sexy, and oh-so-appealing when he's on stage. Off stage, though, he's her worst nightmare. A stubborn, ornery, reclusive nightmare without a lick of business-or fashion-sense. The only way he's going to make it in music is with a serious makeover-and quite possibly a personality transplant.
Soon, they're engaged in a game of give and take, and though it's Melody calling the shots, it's Aaron who holds all control...
How disciplined are you when it comes to writing? Nine to five? And was it always like that?
When it comes to discipline, I live in the extreme. I can tell you that while I was in the last round of edits for PLAYED, I was working around the clock, sleeping just a few hours a night. Though it isn’t always like that. I do try to write every day, and I’m definitely working most of the day. But I have to get my little guy off to school and pick him up in the afternoon, so I’ll jump back in late at night or early in the morning if I need to.
Who is your favorite character from all of your books?
I adore Melody Sharp in PLAYED. She is a smart, sassy southern belle with a heart of gold. Right up there is Stevie Sinclair from my Quick and Dirty series. She is like a sexier, naughtier Bridget Jones!
What is your guilty pleasure?
I LOVE to binge watch TV. I’ve been known to go on a HGTV marathon after a big deadline. Right now, I’m obsessed with Fixer Upper!
If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?
I’ve always been a writer in one form or another, so I really have no idea. I don’t have many other skills :)
What 3 books have you recently read that you would recommend?
I’ve been on a thriller binge lately and really enjoyed Luckiest Girl Alive, The Silent Wife, and Defending Jacob.
