My Chat with Phoenix

Hello and welcome!

My guest today is a firecracker I met recently, she is petite, but don’t get on her bad side. She doesn’t take any BS from any overbearing men LOL love her for it.

Welcome! Welcome!

What is your full name?
Phoenix Grace McKay. Ooops, Phoenix Grace Valenti. I forgot I’m married now.

Do you have a nickname?
Yes, Phe.

What is one word best describes you?
Definitely outgoing.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
My favorite pink Barbie shirt, black skirt, and hot pink heels.
Those are gorgeous, let me take a picture.


Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I think Nicole Garcia did an absolute PHE-nomenal job describing me to a T. She gets me.

What makes you laugh out loud?
My best friends Gio and Josh. Although, most of the laughs are at my poor husband Nico’s expense. But, we’re family so it’s all in good fun.

What is your favourite dessert?
Butter pecan ice cream. Or fresh fruit.

What is your favourite drink?
Orange juice.

What is your greatest fear?
Being alone.

What is your favourite colour?
Pink of course.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Nico’s old college t-shirt from like a billion years ago. Don’t tell him I said that.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Nico and I have had many of these. I love when it’s just the two of us snuggling on the couch watching horror movies for hours.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I’m very ticklish, everywhere. My stomach, my feet. Nico loves to torture me by holding me down and tickling my neck with his beard.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I love the smell of Nico’s cologne. It doesn’t really remind me of anything, it just makes me tingle all over.

When you look at a man what catches your interest?
His hands. I love a man with big strong hands.
Me too…. soft, limp hands UGH shudder

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Boy, do I ever. My house is always full of people. Besides my amazing husband Nico, I have three beautiful children; Domenico Jr., Bella, and Apollonia Grace. Triplets sure keep you busy. Then there’s Gio, Josh, and my ex- bodyguard Derrick who is also a permanent part of our family.


What is one word best describes him?
What one word describes Nico? I have to say loving. That big grizzly bear of a man may seem hard on the outside, but he’s all soft and gooey on the inside. He has the biggest heart of anyone I know.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes! There are going to be four more books in my series and Nicole also tells me there will be a spin-off series as well. Though she won’t tell me who it will be about. Hmm, maybe she knows I have a big mouth and will wind up telling everyone. I’m not a very good secret keeper. Unless I have been sworn to secrecy.

What I can tell you about the Decadent series is we will get to meet Gio and Raven, Raven’s best friend Mercedes, one of Gio’s friends Rafael, and I really hope Derrick will finally give in to Josh’s advances because we all know there is a definite chemistry there.

Oh I am so excited, I was hoping will get to see Gio find his HEA, also Josh gets Derrick. Now that is a yummy picture LOL

Thank you Phe for spending time with me, hugs to the triplets and say hello to the guys.


Thanks for joining us and I hope you enjoyed our chat.


Phe is the my book GF from Decadent Dreams by Nicole Garcia. I listened to the audiobook and really enjoyed it, a 5-star story. Read my review here. Great story, a mix of sweet, suspense, LOL moments and hot scenes. Loved the overall feeling this book left me with, content.



My dreams haunt me. I feel as if I am falling into a pit of impending doom, but even that has not prepared me for the roller-coaster of emotions that flood over me when I’m near Phoenix. I have to keep my distance from her. I need to. It’s the only thing I can do to keep from getting hurt again. Staying away from her proves to be a much harder task than I could have ever imagined. She’s not only my assistant, but she’s half my age. She gets under my skin and irritates the shit out of me, yet one smile, one laugh, and I’m melting into a puddle at her feet. Falling in love with her is a bad idea, a very bad idea, because she just may be the one person who breaks my heart for good this time.


Nico is my boss. He’s demanding, bitter, brooding, and a downright bully at times. But, all that doesn’t deter me from him at all. I can see the kindness and compassion in his eyes. I know the secret he’s keeping from everyone and why he’s so guarded with his heart. I don’t care about his secret, nor do I care that he’s twice my age. What matters is the undeniable attraction we feel for each other. If only he can just let go of the past and see what’s right in front of him.

Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for those under the age of 18.

To learn about all the books and keep in touch with Ms. Garcia, check out the links below and if you chat with her, say hello from me 😉

    DO NOT ENTER ME as I’m a big fan of Nicole’s from the beginning and have read Decadent Dreams, as Eniko says, it has everything and it’s fantastic!! She’s written quite a few books now and she gets better with each one. Anyone who likes naughty will love Nicole’s books!! Can’t wait for her Delivered through the Storm, that’s going to be another awesome book.
