My Chat with Mike

Hello and welcome!

This chat has been in the works for a while and I am glad that I can present it to you today.

Please welcome Mike!

What is your full name?
Michael Edward Murphy

Do you have a nickname?
Just Mike but sometimes my family calls me Mikey

What is one word best describes you?
Wow. I only get one word…? Humm… I guess I’d have to say driven. I’m driven.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I’m a personal training so most of my clothes are workout clothes. Right now I’m only wearing swim trunks since I just got out of the pool.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
Yeah, I think she did well. I was a career driven, single guy who worked a lot and had some serious issues with my family. Now I’m happily living with the love of my life and I’m a dad. I’ve also reconciled with my family.

What makes you laugh out loud?
My daughter. She’s truly funny and I love hanging out with her. Some of the things that comes out of that kid’s mouth. She surprises me with her cleverness every day.

What is your favourite dessert?
I’m not a huge fan of sweets. I usually eat fruit for dessert, but if I had to pick, it would probably be strawberry shortcake.

What is your favourite drink?
I drink a lot of water, but when I need a pick me up, it’s coffee. When I’m taking the night off and need an alcoholic beverage, it’s usually beer or fine whiskey.

What is your greatest fear?
I’ve lived through losing the love of my life and losing my brother, I’m not sure there’s anything I can’t handle. But to lose Rachel again might kill me, and now, the thought of anything happening to my daughter scares the hell out of me.

What is your favourite colour?
Green.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Boxers usually or boxer briefs only. I see no reason to wear much else to bed.

What is the perfect romantic date?
That’s a good question. I don’t think I’ve given this much thought. I guess it would have to be hiking the hills with my girl and a healthy picnic lunch. That’s a great day in my book.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I refuse to answer this question. No one should ever try to tickle me.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I really like citrus smells. Orange, lemon, lime. They’re refreshing and clean smelling and remind me of summer.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Usually, it’s her eyes that first catches my attention. I also love a nice smile.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
I do. I’m back with my high school sweetheart and I’m happier than I’ve ever been.

What is one word best describes her?
Despite what we’ve been through, I’d have to say honest. Don’t let the title fool you, Rachel is the most honest person I know. She also deserves two words. She’s honest and kind.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
This book is the last in a series. If a fourth book is written, it’ll be next year and will probably be Rebecca’s story. She’s Emily’s best friends from Accidental Lies.

Thank you Mike for taking the time to chat with me. I hope there will be a next book.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you enjoyed the chat.

Mike is one of my book boyfriends from the Accidental Love Series by Dana Mason.

His book is the ‘Accidental Secrets‘.

AccidentalSecrets-cover-audio.jpg

She’s been hiding something from him. Until now…

Her
He was my childhood sweetheart.
Then it all went wrong, and my mom tore us apart.
Ever since then, I’ve kept my secret.
I haven’t had a choice.
Fourteen years later, just thinking about him makes my stomach flip.
I still remember his citrus smell, the way he used to gently hold my hand.
And then…it turns out he’s living in the same damn town.
But he’s not the Mike I remember.
He’s dark and dangerous, covered in ink.
He’s completely and utterly mouth-watering.
His whiskey-colored eyes blaze as he catches sight of me.
And it’s just a matter of time before he finds out the truth….
The question is, will he forgive me?

Him
She was my ride or die.
And she left without even saying goodbye.
Left me with nothing but a broken heart.
Since then, I’ve struggled to get close to anyone.
It’s pathetic – who else clings to their high school love?
And then, all these years later, I see her.
But Rachel’s not how I remember.
Her wavy, raven hair frames her sexy sea blue eyes.
Her perfect hourglass figure has curves in all the right places.
She’s pin-up girl hot. And I refuse to let her get away this time.
Next thing, we’re in suite 108.
I’m unbuttoning her blouse, tasting every inch of her.
She’s screaming in pleasure.
She’s begging for more.
Everything’s perfect.
Except for one thing…
She’s hiding one hell of a secret.
And when I find out what it is, do I have it in me to forgive her?
Or will I be the one walking away without a goodbye this time?

My review – audiobook edition – 5 stars

heart broken and mended again

WOW I thought the last book was so good, I love Drew, but… this one stole the limelight. Ms. Mason, my heart broke and mended again, to repeat the process again and again. I love Mike and the way he loves Rachel. Her story broke my heart and her mother reminds me of a family member that caused so much heartache UGH I did let loose a few choice words while listening in the car LOL
A well deserved happy ending for the 3 of them, left me grinning. Another great story in the series, my fave for sure… until the next one that is… I hope there will be a next one.
Ms. Navarro is on my ‘eargasm’ list and she does this story justice. Love listening to the voices she gives to the characters and how she gives their emotions life.

I found this series through Ms. Kelsey Navarro. Thank you Kelsey ❤

My Chat with Kelsey Navarro

Hello and welcome!

My guest today has a voice that gave me many hours of listening bliss and she is definitely on my ‘eargasm’ voices list. My love affair with her work started in August last year, listening to the voices she gives to the characters and how she gives their emotions life is something to be experienced.

Please welcome Kelsey Navarro!

Kelsey.jpg

Do you have a nickname?
I usually go by Kelsey, but Kel or Kels sometimes.

What is one word best describes you?
Optimistic? That’s a tough one.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Memes and sarcasm

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
I LOVE wintery smells and baking anything with cinnamon.

Favourite place to spend time in.
I love being in my booth.

What is your fave genre to read in your spare time? Do you have any spare time?
I am a huge romance fan so I tend to listen to all subgenres of that when I have time. I also love self-help non-fiction. I’m a big nerd for personal development.

Audiobooks! What started them?
I’ve always wanted to be in voice over. But a few years ago I went through demo coaching for Commercial and Narration and found audiobooks. Never looked back from there.

Is there a genre that you would not narrate?
No, not so far. I definitely have preferences but I would narrate any genre.

If you could choose another career what would it be?
I actually had another one prior to this. I was in retail management for 8 years prior to going into voice over full time.

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
I do a pretty varied amount of work so I don’t know that there’s a specific emotion or message. I’m a huge fan of keeping the performance as genuine as possible.

Who is your intended audience and why should they listen to your audiobooks?
I do tend to mostly do romance and it’s my favorite genre so those that love that genre would like what I do. I love what I do and hope that shows in my work.
Believe me, it does show.

What is next in your narrating work?
I’m working on a lot this next month! Some Alien romance, a Reverse Harem series, Contemporary romance, a few dual narration and some other great things.

Oh I like the sound of that, looking forward to more hours of ‘eargasms’ 😉
Thank you for chatting with me.
