Pretty Boy
by
M. Kay Fox
July 6th – July 16th
 
 
Such a pretty boy.
Kip Klein has heard this for a
very long time. Apparently that was all he was ever good at anyway. His own
mother despised him for looking like his deceased father. It forced him from
his small hometown to the big city of Chicago.
Lights. Camera. Action.
Welcomed with open arms into the
career of modeling, Kip finds himself doing anything to keep his name and image
out there including showing off his assets for the ladies. Losing his edge, Kip
is sent home to Hawker Flats to rediscover just what made him rough. He
discovers much more than past memories.
The latest Summer fling.
Could her life get any harder?
Summer Sadler is orphaned, a guardian to her half-brother and working every
waking hour she can. On the verge of bankruptcy, she is duped and used for the
land that she owns. Was it too much to hope that the torture would end?
Just one more kiss.
Summer didn’t expect to collide
with Kip Klein, but collide she did. The rigid muscles and tantalizing voice
chase away all reason to keep her distance. Maybe one kiss will cure
everything. Maybe one kiss will destroy them both.

Heat-o-meter: R (This book is promoted as an Erotic Romance but I thought it was fairly tame and y’all know I don’t usually read erotica!)
Rating: B-
This book is a cute, short read that you can finish in 1 sitting.Ok, the prologue starts off with a bang and I was like “where the heck is this going!?!”. I liked Kip and Summer. My only real complaint is the book is a novella that I wanted to be a novel. It all felt rushed and at times I though maybe I had skipped a page by accident. So, if you are looking for a quick read with good romance, this is perfect! If you are looking for deeper characters and drama, this might not be your thing!

Author Interview

1. What inspired Pretty Boy? How did you come up with the idea and these characters?
>>A couple of reader friends and I were talking about male models and how they have become so popular in the industry (especially Indie) and I started to wonder if they were forced to do things that maybe they wouldn’t like so much just to keep their following. I don’t think the idea is as far fetched as it seemed at first. I think most of our fears are being forgotten when you are on top.2. Do you have any rituals when writings (do you have to listen to music, or be in a certain chair, etc)
>>No rituals so much, although this is my first book. I always sit down with a stack of scratch paper, a drink, and a snack. I’m not that superstitious, I guess.

3. Do you ‘map out’ a story before writing or do you just go with it?
>>I just started writing. I really had no idea where it was going. I knew what Kip wanted to say, but beyond that it was mad typing and then major editing.

4. What books do you have coming up that we should keep an eye out for?
>>I haven’t planned any further books, honestly. A few readers have asked for more of Summer and Kip. A couple suggestions to me were to use other male models or some of his friends from the book. We shall see. You’ll be just as surprised as me!

5. What is your favorite genre to read? Who are some of your one-click authors?
>>I am totally enthralled with S.E. Hall and Angela Graham. I read just about everything. My favorite genre is romance and anything remotely sticking to it, I’ll read it.

6. How do you choose a title? How do you choose your character names? Do you try to avoid naming them after people you know?
>>Pretty Boy as a title came easily. I thought about how lots of people think models are just pretty faces and that they really have nothing else to offer. As it coems to character names, I chose Summer for her comparison to the season. She’s beautiful, but really hard to know. Sometimes she can just be too hot to hold. As far as the others, I try really hard not to rhyme. That isn’t as easy as you think it might be 🙂

7. Ok this is a question I call ‘favorites’. Just tell us your favorite of each of these things:

a. Color >>Blue
b. Food >>Chinese
c. TV show >>Rookie Blue
d. Movie >>The Other Woman
e. Book >>Handled by S.E. Hall and Angela Graham
f. Author >>A.C. Wilson, Shevawn Michelle, and Sara Zook
g. PC or Mac >>PC
h. Coke or Pepsi >>Pepsi but really Mt. Dew
