Title: Kiss Your Scars
Author: Avril Ashton
Series: Loose Ends #3
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: February 20, 2018Summary:
Being the king of Atlanta’s underworld used to have its perks, but lately all undercover agent Renzo Vega has seen is the downside. Someone is auctioning off women in his city, and he’s damn sure not about to let that offense stand. Just as he’s set to make a move, Renzo’s club is ambushed and he’s shot. Unsure of who to trust, he turns to the one man he definitely knows wants him dead.
Yanked from his bed, blindfolded and spirited away in the middle of the night, Lowell Scott is shocked to find the darkly gorgeous Renzo bleeding and in need of his help. The very last thing he wants is to come to the aid of the man responsible for his cousin’s death, but the knife at his throat doesn’t give Low much options.
Close proximity doesn’t temper the hatred Low harbors for Renzo, it only brings up new problems. Like the vicious attraction Low struggles to control, and bullets that won’t stop flying. It’s a tough sell to believe there’s anything good in a man as unapologetically dangerous as Renzo. And even if Low could forgive the unforgivable, Renzo is still shadowed in secrets. When they’re exposed, those secrets will bring far-reaching consequences that could sever not just their shaky bond, but Low’s family ties as well.
This is book three in the Loose Ends series, but can be read as a standalone.
Warning: Contains references to subjects that may be triggering. Please read with caution.
I just really wanted to see two men fall in love and live happily ever after.
When writing a book, what is your favorite part of the creative process (outline, plot, character names, editing, etc)?
I don’t plot before I write, so I discover and learn my characters in the moment. Peeling back their layers and figuring out who they are is my favorite thing.
When reading a book, what genre do you find most interesting/intriguing?
I read romance. That is all I need. Happiness. Fulfillment. Love. Laughter. Heartbreak too. That’s what interests me.
If you could co-author with any author, past or present, who would you choose?
I’d never be a good co-author, so I don’t even entertain that.
Have you always wanted to write or did it come to you "later in life"?
I’ve always been in love with books and reading. I only entertained the idea of creating my own worlds in my early twenties. I guess that would be considered late in life?
A Caribbean transplant, Avril now lives in Stone Mountain, GA. with a tolerant Spousal Equivalent. Together they raise an eccentric daughter who loves reading and school (not so much school anymore). Avril's earliest memories of reading revolve around discussing plot points of Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys with an equally book-minded mother
Always in love with the written word, Avril finally decided to do the writing in August of '09 and never looked back. Spicy love scenes, delicious heroes, and wicked women burn up the pages of Avril's stories, but there'll always be a happy ending; Av remains a believer of love in all its forms.
A lover of cake, the ID Channel and the UFC, Avril writes Erotic and GLBT Romance.
