Hello and welcome!
I’ve been waiting with much anticipation since I heard about his story and now that I read it, I had to invite him for a chat. My knees are trembling… OH MY! … sigh … too bad he doesn’t have any brothers, those eyes DAYUM … my fave colour
Please welcome Ty!
What is your full name?
Do you have a nickname?
My friends call me Ty. My sisters sometimes call me Ty the Tiger, but I let them live.
What is one word best describes you?
That you are, I am impressed how much.
Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
A navy Ermenegildo Zegna suit, and white shirt with French cuffs and gold cuff links – a graduation gift from my grandfather. They have my initials engraved on them. I don’t much do casual, even business-casual. I’m also wearing a silk tie that Amy picked for me. It’s a little more colorful than I would have chosen myself, but I’m taking her out for dinner tonight and she’ll like if I’m wearing it. Pleasing Amy is very big for me. Stepping out of my comfort zone has proven to be a big part of pleasing Amy, but it’s totally worth it.
A little colour is good for you 😀
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I don’t think I’m quite as bossy as Deborah made me sound. I did get that exasperated with Amy, though. That part was all true, every single word. My car is never going to look right again, and it’s my own fault.
What makes you laugh out loud?
Being surprised. That can make me laugh or it captures my interest. Amy did both the first time we talked, which explains a lot.
What is your favourite dessert?
I don’t have much of a sweet tooth. I was always a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy, but Amy’s homemade pasta is changing my thinking very quickly.
What is your favourite drink?
What is your greatest fear?
I don’t have many fears. I was raised to see fear as a challenge, and to address it with my choices. So, if I were – just for example – afraid that this relationship with Amy might not continue to be as incredible as it’s been so far, I’d make every effort to keep that from happening. I think relationships need to be nurtured, and that partners need to be appreciated. My parents do that for each other, and Amy’s parents apparently did that (I would have liked to have met them) so we both are committed to talking and sharing. I’ll never take her for granted, and that’s a big part of what undermines fear.
What is your favourite colour?
I’ve become unexpectedly partial to tangerine. Just catching a glimpse of a dress in that color – especially if it’s a puffy bridesmaid’s dress – makes me smile.
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nothing. What do you wear? he winks
Wouldn’t you like to know I say with a grin
What is the perfect romantic date?
I used to think it was one in which everything went according to my plan. The thing is that while it’s satisfying to organize something well, it can also be a bit dull. I didn’t realized that until Amy and I started our fake date plan – I was never entirely sure what was going to happen and that actually increased my interest in seeing her. She challenges my expectations and I like that, I like it a lot.
How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
As if I’d admit anything that will make me vulnerable.
What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I like how women smell. I like how the scent of a woman’s perfume (if she wears any) and her soap and whatever other products she uses all blend with her own scent to create a distinctive and personal scent. In particular, I like how Amy smells. I could find her in the dark.
When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
I read mysteries and thrillers, so I’m intrigued by a woman who can’t be understood at a glance. Amy, for example, used to dress very plainly. It was probably easy for people to overlook her, but I noticed that she had a quiet confidence, and also that she was quite pretty. After we were in the elevator alone together and she was too flustered to remember to push the button for her floor, I knew she’d noticed me. After that, I paid attention. I saw that she read a lot, just like me. I noticed that she always brought her lunch to work, just like me. I saw that she bought herself a coffee only on Fridays and I wondered why. Why one? Why only on that day? Because we’re both readers, I thought of Amy when I decided to take a fake date to my sister’s wedding. Because she chewed me out for my assumptions the first time we talked… and quoted Anaïs Nin to me! I had to know more – which is why that fake date led to an engagement of our own. She wasn’t like any other woman I’d met before, so I had to know more.
Do you have somebody in your life now?
Amy, my own enigma. We’re getting married soon.
I hear, congrats to you both!
What is one word best describes her?
Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Simply Irresistible is the first book of the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances and romantic comedies by Deborah Cooke. Next up is Addicted to Love, which is my friend, and partner, Kyle’s book. Kyle is the high king of one-night stands, so I’m not convinced that Deborah can lead him to a happily-ever-after, but maybe and I say this with some doubt, it’s only a question of Kyle finding the right woman. Maybe.
Thank you so much Ty for chatting with me, I really enjoyed your company and I am looking forward to read how things progress in the next books. Hugs to Amy.
I give him a quick hug… hey… I couldn’t resist feeling up his hard body… I know, I know, I am shameless 😛 … and those eyes? Le sigh!
As I close the door after Ty, I hear …
Pssst – this is Deborah. It’s actually a question of Kyle having a second chance with the woman he already knows is the one for him. She married someone else, so he knows that a relationship with any other woman has no future for him. Lauren is Ty’s sister, though, and Ty knows nothing of either the night Lauren and Kyle shared once-upon-a-time, or the fact that Lauren has turned to Kyle for pure pleasure after the end of her marriage. Don’t tell Ty. He’ll be shocked that his favorite sister would do such a thing.
Great timing Deb, Ty just left. Thanks for sending him over for a chat. I am sure Ty will get over it and be happy for his favourite sister. I can’t wait for Kyle and Lauren’s story. I can’t believe I have to wait for 6 months to read it
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed the chat as much as I did.
Tyler McKay has had enough…
Going to his fourth sister’s wedding without a date will only encourage his female relations to “help” him find romance. Ty’s ready to wait for Ms. Right and is busy enough as the finance guy for F5. When he learns that the cute woman who works in his building is in the same predicament, he’s sure that fake dates are the perfect solution. She agrees, but Ty soon realizes that there’s far more to Amy than meets the eye. When she enrolls in a bondage class at F5, he finds himself taking a disguise as dangerous Matteo to keep her safe. How far will he go to win the heart of a woman he finds…simply irresistible?
Amy Thornton can’t get enough…
Amy can’t resist another romance about a hot hero and the woman who steals his heart away with naughty games. When she decides to write her own book, she knows she needs to do research. Her fake date, Tyler, is gorgeous but too nice to play naughty games—unlike Matteo, Amy’s mysterious personal instructor at F5, who plays them so well. When Amy has to choose, will she pick the nice guy or the promise of the forbidden pleasures she finds…simply irresistible?

My review: 5 stars
I think I am in love … I really enjoyed Ty and Amy’s story, the way it unfolds, with small detours that seem big at the time. What I liked the most is that Ty is a nice guy, no dark past, no scars or emotional baggage and that is refreshing. The excerpts from the book Amy is writing are from an actual book which I read and enjoyed, another novel idea I love, having two authors collaborate this way. I can’t wait for Kyle’s book. Thank you Ms. Cooke for an awesome read!
Maybe you remember I posted a while ago that this series is connected to Ella Ardent‘s Euphoria series. With Tyler’s encouragement, Amy decides to follow her dream of becoming a writer. She begins to write an erotic fairy tale called Her Dark Prince. I read that one too… Amy you naughty girl LOL… and I am hoping I can get Lothair to come for a chat 😉
