My Chat with Dax

Hello and welcome!

Today I have a delicious man in uniform I met a few weeks ago. Not HAVE-have, I meant here… for a chat… I wish sigh

Please welcome Dax!
Thank you Susan! You are brilliant, but you should have warned a gal you know? He is sooo gorgeous… no wonder Mac was dumbstruck at first sight LOL

AHEM I clear my throat and try to gather my runaway thoughts and I see him smile as if he knows the reaction he caused.

What is your full name?
Daxton Chambers

Do you have a nickname?
Dax

What is one word that best describes you?
Patient

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
looks down at self Jeans. Black T-shirt. And if you must know… boxers Mack bought for me with a moose on them.
cheeky isn’t he? 😀

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
She did a pretty good job, although I love how she nailed Mack’s personality and her tendency to ramble.
Yes, she made me like Mack a lot and laugh too.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Mackenzie. It doesn’t matter what we’re doing, or what kind of mood I’m in…my Mackenzie can always make me laugh with her rambling ways.

What is your favourite dessert?
Double chocolate brownies
Oh Brownies are among my faves too… so yummy… I got a friend to make some, because I am hopeless at baking, but love to eat them

browniessource

What is your favourite drink?
Lone Star Beer

What is your greatest fear?
Not being there for Mackenzie. I don’t worry about myself, necessarily, when I’m on duty, but I worry about what it would do to her if something happened to me.

What is your favourite colour?
Brown.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
he grins Do you really want me to answer that? I think the fact that I’ve got a beautiful sensual woman sleeping next to me every night can tell you what I wear.

What is the perfect romantic date?
he rolls his eyes I’m not romantic. At all. But for Mackenzie I’ve learned to make the effort because she is a die-hard romantic. The other night I bought three dresses for Mackenzie to choose from. Left them on her bed and told her when I’d pick her up. I didn’t tell her where we were going. I wore my Ranger uniform, because she loves me in it, and we went out to a special spot my buddy Conor Paxton told me about. He’s a Game Warden and knows all the good hidey holes. We had a picnic and we danced to the song that was playing on the radio on our first date.
If that isn’t romantic, I don’t know what is… sigh

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I’m not ticklish, and it drives Mackenzie crazy that I’m not.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
he gives me a naughty grin chocolate and whip cream…and I plead the fifth on what it reminds me of.
I am sure we can use our imagination for that… right ladies?

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
One of the things that attracted me to Mackenzie was her honesty. And the way she says whatever she’s thinking. In my line of work I usually have to dig and dig and dig to get at the truth, but with Mack, I know exactly what she’s thinking at all times. It’s refreshing and I like the fact she doesn’t play games. If she’s mad at me for something, she tells me straight out. It’s refreshing and I couldn’t imagine ever being in love with someone who hides stuff from me. Hell, I couldn’t imagine being in love with anyone other than Mackenzie.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
As I think you probably know by now…yes. Mackenzie.

What is one word best describes her?
his smile is warm Refreshing.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes. I was first. You know that saying, “save the best for last?” It’s bullcrap. he laughs Susan wrote the best story first, mine. I heard that she was just going to write about me and my law enforcement friends, but then the firefighters insisted on getting in on the action. So the series will ultimately be fifteen books long. Book number nine will be out in November 2017 and the others will continue after that.

I am looking forward to read your friends’ books. Thank you for your time, Dax. Hugs to Mac.

Did you enjoy the chat? I hope you did. Thanks for joining us.

cover

Dax is the hero from Justice for Mackenzie, book 1 in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes by Susan Stoker.

Mack blinked, hoping she’d be able to see something…anything, but she remained as blind as she’d been since she’d first woken up. She struggled desperately to hold the scream inside.

A member of the famed Texas Rangers, Daxton Chambers has dealt with more than his share of depravity. But the Lone Star Reaper takes evil to a whole new level, kidnapping and burying women alive. It’s Dax’s job to help keep San Antonio safe, but even with help from friends in various law enforcement agencies, the killer remains two steps ahead. It’s hardly the ideal time for a relationship, but Mackenzie Morgan is too luscious to resist. Dax wants her–which makes her an instant target for his newfound enemy.

When the Reaper gets personal, it will take every ounce of Daxton’s considerable skill and training to keep Mack alive. ​

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Erin Mallon, who is becoming one of my fave voices.

My review:

“I want a Dax ;)”
Overall 5 stars •  Performance 5 stars • Story 5 stars
It was easy to fall in love with Dax. Kind, loyal, strong and with a big heart, no wonder he caught Mack’s heart. She is hilarious, clumsy and talks a lot, but that is what makes her endearing. She made me laugh out loud with her rambles. I loved that the story is about a second chance at HEA for an older couple than the usual 20something. Quite a trip these two have on the way to that though. I cried when he talked to her while watching her last minutes on the monitor, my heart almost stopped but it all ends well. Loved the friendship between Dax and his crew from different divisions and how they have each other’s backs. Looking forward to Cruz’s story.
Ms. Mallon really breathed life into the characters, the various voices distinct and the story flowed easily with the emotions clearly expressed. Very enjoyable listening experience.
