Interview and Giveaway with Jessica Hawkins

Posted November 26, 2018 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Featured Authors, Front Page, Interviews / 9 Comments

Welcome to Under the Covers, Jessica!  We are excited to have you here today and to talk about your upcoming book THE BAD BOY ISSUE. I know we are a little early since the book comes out December 28 but lets find out some more about it.

What’s your favorite thing about Sebastian Quinn and did you have someone specific in mind (celebrity, etc) when writing his character?

Sebastian Quinn is a little different than your average alpha male. He has a lot of heart and doesn’t open up to people right away. That means when he does, he goes all in. He’s also quick on his feet, which makes him one of the funniest heroes I’ve written!

I don’t have a specific celebrity in mind, but I sort of picture Sebastian as the contestant on The Bachelor who’d sweep women around the world off their feet!

If you could spend the day with Georgina, how would you two spend it?

Georgina has a massive Great Dane named Bruno. He might be the real hero of this book! Because of his size, he requires a lot of exercise and attention. Georgina and I would take Bruno around Manhattan to sample craft beers, eat candy, and chat up handsome dog dads. Of course, Sebastian wouldn’t appreciate that so he might want to tag along with the newest addition to his family (you’ll have to read to find out!).

Lets talk music! What would be the theme song for this couple?

Ohh. Great question. I make a playlist for every story I write—it’s actually one of the first things I do. It’s hard to pick just one theme song for Sebastian and Georgina. Since it’s an enemies-to-lovers romance where Sebastian has a bit of a bad reputation, I’m going to have to choose “Bad Blood” by Taylor Swift…followed by “Fix You” by Coldplay for when they finally lower their swords.

I love a good office romance!  What’s your favorite trope to read and to write?

My favorite trope to write has to be a true love triangle, but I’m partial to anything with angst, steam, or an alpha in a suit and tie. I love to read that too, which is what got me started writing in the first place. However, I do have a weak spot for stories with a tortured hero, especially If he has to grovel for the heroine.

If you could pick 5 words to describe what readers can expect from books, what would you say?

Heartfelt

Angst

Steam

Depth

Forbidden

What inspires your book ideas?

So much! Actually, anything around me. I’ve been inspired by music, film, tv, other books…mostly any type of media that really pushes boundaries. I’m moved when the artist goes there. Sometimes things just hit me while I’m walking down the street. I get my best ideas when my mind is free to wander, like when I’m driving or trying to fall asleep.

Who are your favorite bad boys (not from books)?

James Dean, Warren Beatty, Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Jax Teller from Sons of Anarchy, Ernest Hemingway

What 3 books on your to-read list are you most excited about?

Only Love by Melanie Harlow

99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (I know, I’m late!)

Date Night Rapid Fire

Dinner or Movie? Dinner

Flowers or Candy? Flowers

Drive or Walk? Depends on the guy 😉

Drinks or Coffee? Coffee

Theather or Picnic? Picnic

Thank you so much for sharing with us today!

Thanks for having me 😉

The Bad Boy Issue
by Jessica Hawkins

BOOK INFO


Released: December 28 2018

The issue with bad boys? I’m not one—but I’m not about to put a stop to the rumors. My taste for fast cars, late nights, and beautiful women helped get me to the top of a leading New York magazine known for its tongue-in-cheek humor and over-the-top masculinity. But after an industry exposé maligns me as a womanizer, the reputation that made me is suddenly threatening to end my career. Damage control comes in the form of a pretty, pint-sized “fixer,” but from the moment I meet Georgina Keller, I can’t help thinking she’s eager to land the final blow—and maybe even my job.

The issue with bad boys? They run right over good girls like me. But after a confidence-shattering breakup, I’m determined not to let anyone at my new workplace push me around—not even the brooding Sebastian Quinn, who’s made it clear I’m the enemy. I’m ready to help Modern Man shed its bad reputation, but to do that, I’ll have to start at the top . . . and no amount of rakish charm or inconvenient attraction is going to distract me.

Because it’s true what they say—there’s a thin line between love and hate.
And it cuts right through the middle of our office.
