Welcome Birthday Guest Bailey Bradford!

Birthday bash 2016 icon

Hi there! I’m Bailey, and today, in celebration of Amber’s birthday month, I’ll be interviewing Josh and Nick— can’t get just one of them alone—from What Matters Most, book 3 from the Love in Xxchange series. Josh has been a reader favorite since his introduction in Bend, book 2. Don’t worry, Nick gets lots of love, too 😀

Anyway! They’re also going to give away the complete e-book set of my Southern Spirits series, which you can check out here:



Why that series instead of theirs? Well, because the Southern Spirits just got a freshening up a couple of months ago, and I haven’t done a giveaway with them 🙂 One winner will get the complete set in either PDF or ePub format. Just let me know which you’d prefer in your comments, please.

All entrants must be 18+ to enter and win.


*Phew!* Now, on to the interview!


Nick: It’s about damn time.

Josh, *patting Nick’s hand*: Don’t be so cranky. It’s unappealing—to the readers. I mean, it turns me on sometimes, but this isn’t that kind of interview.

Nick: What d’you mean, this isn’t that kind of interview? We don’t do sex-talk-interviews.

Josh: You don’t. I’ll share about anything. Now, let Bailey get on with this.

Nick: You and I are gonna discuss that sharing business later. No one else needs to know about what we do in bed.

Josh: Or in the kitchen. Or living room. On the porch—

Nick: Josh!

Josh, laughing: You turn so red, it’s adorable.

Bailey: Um, if y’all are done?

Josh: Don’t stress, Nick. Bailey already put our sex life on display years ago. And for the Thanksgiving Day short she did at her blog.

Bailey, looking nervously at Nick: Don’t glare at me like that. I could have written y’all really boring sex scenes that took place entirely in the dark and were over in less than two minutes. Now, Josh, tell us about your favorite birthday memory, please.

Josh: Hm. But you said no talking about sex in this interview.

Nick: Something other than that part of your birthday. *taps fingers on the arm of the chair* For instance, on my last birthday, you had all the waitstaff at Joe’s Crab Shack sing Happy Birthday to me.

Josh: You hated that.

Nick: I was getting to the part I liked, though.

Josh: Oh. Carry on.

Nick: So, after that debacle, you sang Happy Birthday to me, when it was just us.

Josh: I did! And I was wearing—

Bailey: No, Josh. Not going there. Nick, what was so special to you about what Josh did?

Nick: Well, it was the…the look in his eyes, and the way he held my hand. I’m not the most romantic man, and I’m never gonna be a poet, but he made my heart feel like it was lighter than air. I felt loved, and appreciated. It was probably the best birthday memory that I can share.

Josh: Aw, you are so getting bonus points for that! You are my heart, you know that. *kisses Nick’s cheek* I plan on making certain that you have glorious birthdays for the rest of your life!

Bailey: You two are cute. Josh, what’s your favorite rated PG birthday memory?

Josh: Nick gave me a kitten! A kitten, can you believe that? He always griped about how he wasn’t a cat person when I’d mention maybe getting one, then he wakes me up on my birthday a couple of years ago, and handed me this fuzzy, sweet, adorable kitten with the biggest blue eyes! We named him Bomer, because—

Nick: You named him Tom, because you have a crush on Tom Hardy.

Josh: Um, you said he’s hot, too.

Nick: He—the human he—is. The cat’s just cute.

Josh: And practically lives on your lap when you’re home. Hm. You know, considering that—

Nick: Josh…

Josh: Niiiiiiiiiiick…

Nick, sighing: Fine. We’ll go by SA Pets Alive after this interview and see who we find.

Josh, leaping up: Yes! *mwah* We gotta go, sorry folks. Bailey, you’d better let me have another cat.

Bailey: By all means, I’ll write another short about it. *watches Josh and Nick skeedaddle* I can’t believe I just agreed to write them another short story.
