First of all, writing Jesse Brody was the easiest thing I’ve ever done. He’s funny, he’s candid, and he does whatever he wants, without being the alpha-jerk. That is what made him sexy to me. He says whatever comes to his mind, which sometimes had me thinking – can he/should he really say that? And the answer was always yes, yes he can.
The things that came out of his mouth made me laugh and hopefully they will do the same for the readers. That was my goal with this story – to make readers laugh out loud. Funny men = sexy men.
Troy was a little more difficult. When writing Shoes & Ties I didn’t spend as much time with him as I wanted (in the first draft). So I was super stoked when I got to add the scene at the end at Trent’s house… which I won’t go into detail about in case some haven’t read Shoes & Ties yet…
Troy was sexy because he’s a cop (and who doesn’t love them… in stories, not when they are writing you tickets for speeding). Then… when Troy did what he did to win Jesse back (sorry, but I can’t spoil the ending), he stole the show. It took all of the natural sexiness he had and magnified it by a million… guess you have to read it to find out why.
So, readers – comment for a chance to win a copy of Lumber & Law – but you have to include what you think makes a character sexy! :)
