Hello and welcome!
You have to meet my next guest as he is my first BBF from the Kaleidoscope Hearts Volume 4.
Please welcome Jesse!
What is your full name?
Do you have a nickname?
Not something that would be appropriate to share winks
What is one word best describes you?
That’s a tough one… easygoing?
Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
My typical Levis blue jeans, construction boots, white t-shirt … it’s a little snug, I accidentally shrunk it doing the laundry, and my lumber jacket. If you really wanna know everything, wooly socks, and boxer briefs… too far?
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Kali did a great job. Typically, I don’t like too much attention, or to talk about myself. She captured my love of restoration of vintage homes and carpentry, which is my biggest passion in life…Okay, well almost, since a certain landlord moved in, if you know what I’m sayin’. cups his chin to cover a mischievous grin
What makes you laugh out loud?
Funny animal videos, like on Tiktok, or Funniest Videos. They crack me up. But most of all, when I hear Hedy laugh. It just lights me up inside. Her laugh is infectious, in a good way.
What is your favourite dessert?
I absolutely love Sharon’s Strawberry Shortbread Cheesecake. It was a special recipe for Sharon and Larry, and I never expected the shortbread crust to be such a dessert home run! When I tried it that day they came in for some, I just about fell off my seat, it’s so decadent. Hedy ‘nailed it,’
…see what I did there? I’m a carpenter…nailed it?…
Never mind, people don’t usually get my humour. snickers to self
What is your favourite drink?
I love a good Corona with lime, and a chaser of tequila on the side.
What is your greatest fear?
Losing Hedy. She’s the most incredible woman I’ve ever met. Don’t tell her… motions for you to lean in as he whispers I’m kinda sweet on her…
Sits back and pouts Did you see what I did there? Bakery…dessert…sweet on her? tosses his hands up in defeat Forget it.
What is your favourite colour?
Sapphire blue. Just like Hedy’s. You know her long red hair is so perfect with those intense eyes…stares off for a moment, then shakes his head Sorry, where were we?
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Well, his cheeks brighten red Nothing, if I can help it. I mean, if Hedy’s sisters are around, I’ll wear my boxers, but I’m really just a free kinda guy. I prefer not to be restricted when I’m sleeping. Jesse adjusts his seat, seeming uncomfortable
What is the perfect romantic date?
You know, I wouldn’t call myself Don Juan or anything, but I make a mean Amaretto Chicken, with baked potatoes and lemon-garlic asparagus. After dinner, soak in the hot tub under the stars, and sipping Spanish red wine. Then finish the night off listening to music, curled up in a blanket by the fire, and maybe a little massage. Eventually leading into long, slow, deep kisses that’ll curl your toes.
How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Sorry, sweetheart. I’m actually not ticklish. Glances over his shoulder at Hedy who’s snorting with laughter and slapping her thigh
Okay, well, maybe, once in awhile, I’m a little ticklish on my hips…
What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Oh man, my favourite smell is fresh cut wood. The smell of lumber when I’m about to do a reno or build something, it’s so grounding. It triggers my inspiration for carpentry. taps chin in deliberation I actually like the smell of wood on the fire too, wood. Definitely anything wood.
When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
First and foremost, her eyes. Confidence is a big thing for me, especially if she makes good eye contact. When a woman walks in a room, knowing she belongs there, there’s something so alluring about that. No makeup, makeup, hair done, or in a ponytail, dresses, sweat pants and a t-shirt, I think as long as she’s comfortable in her own skin, there is nothing sexier than that to me.
Do you have somebody in your life now?
Jesse grins and tapers his eyes
“Hey!” Hedy calls out from behind him.
Jesse chuckles out loud
Seriously, yeah. I met the most amazing woman. Although we ‘live together,’ technically, we’re taking it slow. We’ve been on a few dates so far. leans in and whispers I have the perfect date we mentioned earlier planned for later this evening. Wish me luck!
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?
Actually, yes! Our story was created with a distinct plan of three stories. You see, Kali wrote this one for the Kaleidoscope Hearts Anthology, the 4th volume. Rumor has it, next year is the 5th anniversary of this series. Kali wants to give Hedy’s sisters both a chance to find love again. So, two more stories, one for Amy, one for Lizzie.
Hey, Jesse stands up and hugs me Oh, sorry about that! brushes off my shirt Got a little saw dust on you.
Thanks so much for the interview. It’s getting late and I have a tasty dinner to whip up.
Folks, if you haven’t read our story yet, be sure to grab your copy while you can. The anthology is only FREE for three months, and then it’s gone forever. To get Decadent Legacies after that, you’ll have to wait for it.
So what do you think? Will he become your next BBF? I hope you give it a try and find out for yourself.
He is the hero in Decadent Legacies by one of my fave authors, Kali Willows! I found out who she based Jesse on and I think it fits. Lucky Hedy! Lucky Jesse! I am a sucker for HEA.
Returning to her family home after a bitter breakup, Hedy Dulce’s new life holds more than she bargained for when she finds herself nearly naked on the floor in front of a strange man.
Born and raised in Toronto, KALI WILLOWS now resides in the exquisite eastern Ontario countryside where she enjoys the serenity of nature. When she isn’t busy being the married mother of two, or a Public Relations & Communications Specialist & Event Manager, she shadows worlds of paranormal passion & intrigue. Kali strives to create emotional, compelling stories and characters you can’t help but love, hate and cheer for. Captivated by her love of dragons, gargoyles and everything paranormal, she pens these delightful creatures into epic tales of romance and adventure and often infuses her passions of martial arts, music and ironic twists even she didn’t foresee. A good cup of tea with the crackling fire gets her creative juices flowing in the wee hours of the night, when the house is quiet and she can type away to her heart’s desire.
Add it to your Goodreads TBR list.
“The Decadent Legacies” by Kali Willows is a 5-star story, she never disappoints. It is a short one but I am invested, fell in love with Jesse and how he charms Hedy to fall for him. I can’t wait for the next book as I want more of the Dulce sisters.
Until next time, happy reading / listening!
