Hello and welcome!
I have few BGF (book girlfriends), usually is the hunks that grab my attention.
One of the few joined me for a chat today and we are celebrating.
What is your full name?
Do you have a nickname?
I guess Cassie is technically a nickname, but no one has ever called me Cassandra. Except my mom when I was in trouble as a kid.
What is one word best describes you?
Energetic. Positive. Passionate.
Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I’m going to work at the Flatiron Five club tonight, so I’m wearing my fave dancing shoes. They’re black leather thigh-high boots with spike heels and I think they go perfectly with my little black, short dress. It drives Reid crazy when we meet again at the beginning of our story, because he can’t see exactly where the boots end. I’m going with that. I’ve twisted up my long blonde hair and painted my nails red, to match my lipstick. It’s going to be hot at the club tonight!
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Yes. She made me share a big secret with Reid, one I’ve been keeping for a very long time – even though I didn’t like it at the time, I felt better afterward. Lighter. Maybe it was time to let that old stuff go.
That was quite a secret, I am glad you were able to share it, I know it helps.
What makes you laugh out loud?
Reid. He makes all these one-liners, deadpan, and cracks me up every time.
What is your favourite dessert?
Something sweet and thick, like chocolate syrup, but I don’t want it on ice cream.
I like how you think LOL
What is your favourite drink?
Something fizzy – like sparkling water, or champagne.
Champagne is mine too, here is my fave sparkling wine, had a bottle chilled to celebrate today. Last year’s crop was pretty good.
What is your greatest fear?
It was going back to Montrose River, the town I couldn’t wait to leave. I guess I need a new fear now.
What is your favourite colour?
Red. Or black. Or both together.
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
What is the perfect romantic date?
One that ends with great sex.
How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Ha! Of course, I am, but I’ll never tell where!
What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Fried chicken from Pappy’s in Montrose River. It used to make me think about hanging out with my friend, Tori, at my uncle’s garage and eating take-out in the summer, but now it makes me think about jumping Reid in Tori’s kitchen.
That scene is really hot!
When you look at a man what catches your interest?
His eyes. His hands. His smile. The way he looks at me.
Do you have somebody in your life now?
What is one word best describes him?
Unexpected. she winks
You can say that again!
Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Some Guys Have All the Luck is book 4 in the Flatiron Five series of contemporary romances by Deborah Cooke. Book 5 will be Going to the Chapel, will be published September 27, 2018 and book 6 will be Bad Case of Loving You, to be published January 22, 2019. It’ll be Theo’s book and I’m looking forward to learning more about his unrequited love. I also have the first tattoo that Chynna gave away at F5 and which launched the Secret Heart Ink series. I guess hmm I have the tattoo that proves her right, that this tattoo given on a full moon brings love to the person who wears it.
I am excited by what is coming! Thank you Cassie for dropping by, I really enjoyed your story and the chat. Maybe you can put a good word in to Chynna and she will agree to come for a chat.
Thanks for joining us and I hope you enjoyed the chat.
CONGRATULATIONS Ms. Cooke!
Adding Reid to my BBF list, Ty has competition for number 1 spot in the series now, or maybe I am taking both. Remember Ty? He chatted with me back in December 2016, if you missed it check it out here.
Cassie has everything she wants…
Cassie Wilson’s life is pretty much perfect, with a dream job, great partners—and the freedom to do whatever she wants whenever she wants. The last thing she wants is to go back to Montrose River, the town she couldn’t wait to leave, and revisit the past. But when her oldest friend asks her to be a godmother, Cassie sees an opportunity to make a difference in Emily’s life. Maybe teaching Emily to dream big will be her legacy. Besides, one weekend in the Midwest won’t kill her. She’ll be back in Manhattan so quickly that they won’t have time to miss her at Flatiron Five.
Reid knows what he wants…
Reid Jackson is convinced that luck has to be made. Keeping his eyes open has been the secret to his success, along with a lot of hard work. He might have come from the wrong side of the tracks, and he might have a reputation of being bad to the bone, but he’s built success after a major setback. When Cassie Wilson comes breezing back into town, Reid is ready to find out if she really is different from everyone else. Cassie is everything he imagined. She turns his expectations inside out—and shakes up his life. When Cassie decides she wants more than a fling, Reid knows he’s not the man she wants him to be—can Cassie change his mind and convince him to hope for more?
My review: 5 stars
Loved this new story, it has the usual smooth flow and the organic unfolding of the story I love in Ms. Cooke’s books.
I really enjoyed learning more about Cassie and her past, she has quite a story. To carry that secret for so long… WOW
Reid is such a lovable guy and he came so far despite his childhood. Loved the chemistry between them, hot and sweet and real without the angst and drama so prevalent these days.
It is true in real life too, we only get to know somebody as far as they allow us to see or sometimes as far as we are willing despite having all the clues in front of us.
I can’t recommend this series enough.
Book 1, ‘Simply Irresistible‘ is on sale for a limited time.
