Gabe D’Angelo has it all. Designer clothes, luxury cars, a cool confidence most would envy, and a never-ending supply of money—and men. When he arrived in Haven’s Cove to be there for his best friend, he never imagined he’d end up extending his stay indefinitely. Small town living isn’t so bad after all, and the views are magnificent—especially the view of a sexy, rugged blond. But when that mysterious, brooding man refuses all Gabe’s advances, he is forced to take a step back and truly look at the person he’s become.
Nate Black moved from Boston to Haven’s Cove for his family. He’s missed small town living and the simple, tranquil life that comes with it. What he doesn’t bargain for is the pushy, spoiled playboy who’s set his eyes on Nate as his next conquest. Knowing this man has the potential to crack the foundation of his quiet life, Nate will do everything he can to protect his safe, closed-off world.
Is one man worth loving? Is the other worth the sacrifice? Or is the love they’re searching for not just hard to get but completely out of reach?
Who are some of your favorite authors and/or books to read when you need to relax?
I love reading and have so many that are my go-to authors. If I’m looking for comfort reads there are several. A few are Home and Away by Samantha Wayland, Better Than Good by Lane Hayes, Collide by Riley Hart, Promises by Marie Sexton, Taxes and Tardis by N.R. Walker, Lazy Sundays by K-lee Klein, The Half of Us and Just What the Truth is by Cardeno C, Borrowing Blue by Lucy Lennox, The Sweetest Goodbye by Christina Lee. That’s more than a few, isn’t it?! LOL There are so many authors that I love, but their books are a bit too action packed to be “relaxing.” I reread those too!
If you were approached to have your book made into a film, who would you cast?
A model/actor, Bernardo Velasco, was the inspiration for Gabe. He’s always been Gabe in my head. Nate is a hard one. I guess he would be along the lines of Chris Hemsworth. Same hair and eyes, but Nate definitely isn’t as tall or as muscular as Thor! LOL
It's often asked what is your favorite part of being a writer but what is the easiest or most natural part of the creative process for you?
I think it would be dialogue. I really just write the way I think. I try to write how people actually talk, how I think a conversation would really go. It’s most natural to me to have these conversations in my head and then transfer it to my writing in the most genuine way possible.
Is there any one character you've created that is most like you? If yes, who and why?
Cameron Vaughn definitely resonates with me to a certain point. We’ve already learned in Hard to Get how shy he is. That’s definitely something I struggle with.
If you could go anywhere (finances, time, & obligations not an issue) where would you go and why?
I would definitely go someplace warm with a beach, palm trees, and drinks with umbrellas!! Key West or Turks and Caicos, maybe?
I have been an artist from a very young age. From drawing cartoon characters and evolving into portraits, making jewelry, photography, and now writing. I have an amazing support system in my family and friends and couldn’t be more grateful.
I live in central New Jersey, love summers at the Jersey Shore, rock music, wine, sexy men, and laughing a lot with my amazing friends and family. Sunday dinners at my parents’ house are crazy, hysterical and you can count on a movie quote…or ten…being thrown out. Insults between siblings is how we show our love for each other!
When I’m not creating, you can find me reading books from my favorite authors. I’m a hopeless romantic, starving for passionate characters and always craving that happy ending, whether in reading or in writing my own books.
