Character Interview: Gavin from Karen-Anne Stewart's New Adult Romance Suspense, Ash to Steele #characterinterviews


 


We’re thrilled to have here today Gavin from Karen-Anne Stewart’s New Adult Romance Suspense, Ash to Steele.  Gavin’s coming to us all the way from the great state of Massachusetts.  It is a pleasure to have Gavin with us today at The Literary Nook!

Thank you so much for this interview, Gavin.  Now that the book has been written, do you feel you were fairly portrayed or would you like to set anything straight with your readers?

Let’s see…sexy? Cocky? An asshole who loves a good fight some of the time, lovable most of the time?  Yep, I think I was portrayed pretty straight on, for the most part.

What do you believe is your strongest trait?

I’m loyal.  It may take me some time to get to like you, but, if I do, I’d kill and die for you. 

Worst trait?

I don’t see that it’s such an issue, but Breck and Jess love to give me hell about my love of a good brawl.  If someone’s stupid enough to start a fight at the Dark Hole, they deserve for me to kick their ass. I am the bouncer…it’s a prerequisite of the job. 

Do you have a love interest in the book?

I haven’t been as lucky as Breck and Emma yet, but I’m enjoying the nights when I get to try out who might end up being ‘the one’.  

At what point of the book did you start getting nervous about the way it was going to turn out?

Pretty much from the moment Breck and Emma met.  She’s everything he does his damnedest to avoid.  We are a tight group and it’s rare for anyone to infiltrate our circle, but Emma did what I never thought was possible by taming Breck Steele. 

If you could trade places with one of the other characters in the book, which character would you really not want to be and why?

Justin.  He’s Emma’s ex-boyfriend, and he’s a suffocating bastard.
 
How do you feel about the ending of the book without giving too much away?

Damn, I love how Breck and Emma end up, even though they went through some serious shit to get there.  And, knowing that I’m getting my own story told in 2015 just makes it that much better ;).  

What words of wisdom would you give your author when she starts writing the book with you in it?

I’d tell K-Anne to show all of me, the good, the fucked-up, my dark side along with my sensitive side.  I’m the whole package, sweetheart.

Thank you for this interview.  Will we be seeing more of you in the future?

Absolutely!  I can’t wait until we meet again.  Until then, hang out with K-Anne to see some updates on Feel, the paranormal romance she’s working on now, and my story – which she needs to hurry her ass up and give a title too soon.

About the Book:

Emma

Who I am and all I believe is marred with just one glance into angry, steel blue eyes. He seems to control my air, my ability to breathe. He makes me crave everything I know is a sin. Pure becomes tainted and lines are blurred. It's my fault; I'm the one who isn't strong enough. I've been damaged...broken. Breck's words haunt me...'There's a consequence for every choice you make.'

Breck

I've had so many women I can't even remember over half of their names, but none of them are mine; I make damn sure of that. I take what I desire and never look back. I don't need or want anyone, ever...not until I met Emma. Those eyes bore into what's left of my soul and her touch sears me, weakens me. I want to hate her for that. She is my ruin...my sweetest hell.
