My Chat with Hank, the Hunk ;)

Hello and welcome!

I was really tempted to hold back this chat and keep Hank all to myself, but then I thought NAH I always share my book boyfriends with my gals 😉

Hank is quite a new addition to my list and he is so yummy, he is a cowboy, should I say more? I didn’t think so 😀

Without further ado, I give you Hank!

What is your full name?
Hank Jensen. I don’t have a middle name because Ms. Carlan didn’t give me one.

Do you have a nickname?
My sweet Angel calls me “Stud”. I like that one. He winks I’ve been known to go by a few names but none of those are appropriate for this here interview.

What is one word best describes you?

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Darlin’ should I say I’m in my birthday suit? He whispers and my imagination is running off with me Nah! After this I’ll be headin’ to the job site. Wearing my favorite pair of Levis, with a Jensen Construction monogrammed t-shirt. Aspen says the color brings out the gold flecks in my eyes. blows a kiss to Aspen She’s somethin’ else. Anyway, haven’t got my work boots on yet so I’m bare foot. That’s about it.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I’m here aren’t I? Wouldn’t be answering your questions if she didn’t.

What makes you laugh out loud?
When Oliver and my Angel fight about shoes, or clothes, really anything for that matter. Those two are worse than brother and sister. As long as he remembers to be respectful to my girl I let them go about their tantrums.

Oliver pipes in Tantrum’s? I know he didn’t just say tantrums. You want to see a tantrum cowboy? I’ll show you one. How’s about the crap you’re pulling with hiding all Pen’s skirts. You know the ones I’m talking about. The Prada pencil skirts with the slit up the thigh?

You mean those handkerchiefs you call a skirt? No woman of mine is going to wear a napkin buddy. End of.

Every woman in the world wears Prada, Hank! It’s designer. It’s meant to show that much leg.

Not my woman’s legs. Those stems are meant to be wrapped around my waist.

I see Oliver is getting exasperated Unbelievable! Pen! I’m going to have to replace all of your skirts.

I quickly ask my next question, these too can go on and on if I let them.
What is your favourite dessert?
You mean ‘sides my sweet Angel?

Stud, you talk about our sex life and I’m going to withhold for a week! Maybe two!
He rolls his eyes She’d never make it. I’d give it two days…tops!

What is your favourite drink?
Nothin’ better than a cold beer on a hot day.

What is your greatest fear?
Losing Aspen. She’s my everything. Without her, well, that would be that. I’d be done for.

What is your favourite colour?
Don’t know that I ever really thought about it. I sure like my girl in white. So if I had to pick one I’d reckon that would be it.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
I don’t like nothin’ between me and my woman. I wear what the good Lord gave.

What is the perfect romantic date?
I think you ought to ask Aspen but I like the simple things life offers. A nice sunset, a good meal, and my girl is all I need to be happy.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Real men aren’t ticklish. Hank covers his arms over his chest protectively

He’s full of it! Aspen laughs There’s this spot just on the back of his neck. I take great pleasure in torturing that spot as often as possible.

Now Darlin’ don’t be tellin’ all my secrets. A man’s got to have a few under his hat.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I love the smell of vanilla and honeysuckle. My Angel smells like a dream. I could eat her up. Hank grins And her hair, there’s nothin’ like it. Nothin’.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
I could lie and say a good pair of tits and ass wasn’t the first thing I thought of but I’d by lyin’ and I don’t make a habit of doin’ so. With my girl though, I think it was her confidence that stole my breath initially. There aren’t too many women like her runnin’ around this God forsaken city.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
I believe you know Ms. Aspen Bright-Reynolds. Soon to be Mrs. Jensen with none of those other names weighing her down.

What is one word best describes her?
I laugh out loud. I gathered that much, you are an adorable caveman.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
My book is the first in the series. There’s more to come in London Falling which is about Aspen’s sister. Then there’s Justice Falling which is about her lawyer and my receptionist which he takes as his own filly. We’re all connected. Good friends if not family. I will say that Aspen and me make several appearance in both books and you get to see through to the end of our happily ever after. So pick up our tale and enjoy the ride. I sure as hell did.
I sure did too Hank! The series is an amazing journey! Thank you for agreeing to spend some time with me.

Thank you Aspen for being here too… and Ollie, you are just adorable, one of a kind, beautiful person.
Can I keep him, Aspen? I hope Ms. Audrey will let you come by sometime in the future and have a chat with me.

Aspen looks horrified, Hank grins and Ollie shakes his head at me, but smiles and I can’t keep myself from laughing out loud.


Hope you enjoyed the chat as much as I did.



Hank hails from “Angel Falling”, book 1 in The Falling Series by Audrey Carlan. A beautiful, sexy series that I read in a matter of days, it was that good, 5 stars from me the whole way.


The series was recommended to me by a good friend of mine, Karen and I have to thank her for it.

It’s been a while since I’ve been so excited about a series, it is just something about Ms. Carlan writing that draws you in and doesn’t let you put down the book. The characters are so well matched and the secondary ones are well complementing. I love Ollie, best friend and fierce protector to Aspen, Hank’s love. We get to see him in all 3 books, but I hope we get to read his own HEA story, same with Tripp who you get to meet more in-depth in the 3rd book. Click here to read an interview with Oliver (Ollie) over at Tome Tender, I loved it.

Now onto the QUESTION of the day! Silk or leather?

I loooove leather, especially if a nice tush is encased in it 😉

One lucky commenter will win an ebook copy of “Angel Falling” by Audrey Carlan. The comments will stay open until 1pm, Tuesday, September 30th, 2014. Good luck!

Until next time happy reading!
